Restaurant for parents' visit.

Thanks. Was thinking of VQ. I've been once and liked it very much. Any others that are similar to it? We like Meriwether's, but wanted something new.

Thanks. I will check out Gruner. Should have also specified no Italian. Lots of that back east.

Anniversary dinner Portland

Will you have a car? If you do, it might be nice to drive out to wine country and try The Painted Lady.

Restaurant for parents' visit.

So, I have finally convinced my parents to visit us in Portland in the summer. I am forever singing the praises of my new home and would like to show my parents the best the dining scene has to offer. Lately, my husband and I have been frequenting smaller, ethnic restaurants and I am at a loss as to where to bring my parents due to their restrictions. I would like to show them PNW cuisine, but the menu needs to have a good mix. No seafood for Dad, no red meat for Mom, nothing too funky (they are from Connecticut), nothing with a long wait (they are older), and they will be here on a Monday and Tuesday. Any ideas?

Brunch in Portland

Thanks. Been to Departure Lounge for an evening party and liked it. Might stick with something more traditional for this crowd, which includes older relatives. I'm thinking Heathman. Thanks so much for your reply.

Paris restaurant - special occasion with 11 year old

Never wrote back, but I splurged for Le Cinq and it was wonderful! Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you for urging me to do so. Don't even miss those euros!

Brunch in Portland

Hi.

Looking for a place for brunch to celebrate a Confirmation. Will have a small group (10 or so) and looking for a place that has great food and a nice atmosphere. Online I see recs for Gracie's and The Heathman. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Looks like it is unanimous! Thank you all.

May I bother you with two more quick questions? Can I have the concierge at my hotel make reservations when we arrive in Paris, or do I need to call ahead ASAP? Also, should my son pack a jacket, or can an 11-year-old get by with dress pants and a shirt?

Lunch is a brilliant idea! Why didn't I think of that? Looking at old posts regarding lunch at Le Cinq, it says that there is a 90 euro menu and a 130 menu. Sorry, I meant 100 euro budget for two. Any suggestions along that line?

Paris restaurant - special occasion with 11 year old

Hello.

Will be visiting Paris with my 11 year old son in late April (Easter) and was wondering if anyone could recommend a restaurant that will give him the quintessential Parisian dining experience - at least as seen through the eyes of an 11 year old. (When I asked him what he would like to do in Paris he named two things: see the Eiffel Tower and eat in a "nice" French restaurant.) Last time I was in Paris I was a starving student so I have no idea where to begin. I have been reading the posts on this site, but not sure what would be appropriate for a child. He is an adventurous eater and well-behaved. He is obsessed with Michelin stars. (Too $$$, I think!) I think we can do just as well by asking here.

Looking for great food, a very "French" atmosphere and if possible in the 8th arrondisement. We can travel if need be. Just worried about being exhausted in the evenings. We are coming from the West Coast. Budget of about 100 euros (he won't be drinking!) I am also a little worried about what will/will not be open Easter weekend. We arrive on a Thursday and Sunday is Easter. Should we try for dinner on Friday or Saturday?

Thank you for helping with this most important part of our trip!
