Prague Help?

I'm Portuguese so lack of greenery on my plate won't phase me. I am also wondering about having our 1yr old with us in general. I know the beer gardens in Germany are pretty kid friendly. How about the pubs in Prague?

Prague Help?

Most excellent. Many thanks. Our daughter is a baby chow hound. She enjoys sausage and sauerkraut so I'm thinking she will like Germany and Prague in June. Just hope she likes Cubism... ;)

Prague Help?

Hello all! Enjoyed reading all the recommendations. We will be in Prague for 3 nights in June. We will have our 18month old traveling with us. We would like to eat Czech food while we are there.

Have noted the following places as potentials:

golden tiger--nixed b/c they don't allow kids (insert sad face)
Czesky Kucyne--Is this place still open, I can't find it on google maps!!
Strahov monastery resto--potential if there is time
Nota Bene- Thank you Sasicka for this rec.
Betlémské náměstí ?
Restaurace Baráčnická rychta ?
Restaurace Mlejnice ?
Kolkovna ?
U medvídků (At the Little Bears) ?

Would love feedback if you think my choices are on point or perhaps you can steer me in a different direction. Thanks all!

Nothing to be said about Dresden?

I have just done a search of Chowhound looking for recs in Dresden. I am shocked/saddened that nothing has been written about the food there (nice post about wine though fyi). Is there anyone that can give me a few pointers for a yummy eating establishment in Dresden for June 2012? It would be most appreciated! Thanks!

In the French Quarter, on foot, with a 10 month old in early Dec.

Got some great recs but had to rule out several as I don't think diners at the higher end places would appreciate my little monster making appreciative shrieks of delight while she gums her po'boy! Also, several people recommended places that you'd have to take a taxi or the trolley--bummer. We like to eat just about anything but cheap eats really make our day.

These places have been noted so far:
Gumbo Shop in the FQ
Mena's Palace is a local's favorite that serves NOLA comfort food for breakfast and lunch.
Johnny's Po Boy's is in the FQ on St. Louis and has outstanding po boys.
Rampart Food Store has good po boys.
Cafe Maspero serves very good reasonable NOLA cuisine also. .
Trolley Stop Cafe @ 1923 Saint Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 0090.
Mr. Bs on royal st. for bbq shrimp.
ACME oyster house for oysters

We wish the crescent pie and sausage place was closer!! Also wish Deannie's was closer!!

Any other good suggestions? thanks a bunch.

Is there any good food in the Azores?

Hello Viking! I was wondering if you have already been on your trip? I am originally from Fall River, MA and my family is from the Azores. I went for the first time two years ago and enjoyed the food quite a bit. If you have not already gone on your trip, please reply and I will give you some restaurant names. Most memorable is Alabote in Ribeira Grande on Sao Miguel. Also in the village of Santana (on the way to Ribeira Grande from Ponta Delgada).
