Verjus or Frenchie?

John, do you agree about Frenchie, too, or the importance of cancelling?

Verjus or Frenchie?

Of course I would love to go to both. Alas, I can only eat one dinner the night I have reservations to both. I have asked this forum to help me choose so that I can cancel one and not be a rude American!

If you had to choose one, which would it be?

Verjus or Frenchie?

I have one night and a reservation at both Verjus and frenchie. Have read oodles of reviews and am sure they are both great, and can't decide. Need to cancel the one we don't go to. Help -- which would you go to, and why?

Where to purchase passover seder food in Paris 2014

Thank you -- I love this article! It is what inspired me to try to do a seder in Paris in the first place (on vacation). That said, it only mentions one store (which I had actually forgotten when I posted this thread) and I was concerned that one specific store might not have everything. Apparently I was wrong!!

Yes, I did search but the old threads. I found that they almost exclusively pertained to where one can go to attend (not host) a seder, and the one place mentioned to buy food is sadly no longer in business. Other than parts of town to walk, I was hoping someone could name a few places (esp in the Marais) where I can purchase the prepared items needed.

I will check out Miznon, though. Sounds interesting! Thanks.

Hi there. We'll be renting an apartment in the Marais and I want to host a first-night Seder there. Am wondering where to find PREPARED (preferably ashkenazic-style) dishes. Ideas??

Rome, Florence, and Venice with a foodie 11 year-old

I will be heading to Italy with my husband and 11 year old (foodie) son in April, and would love some restaurant recommendations. We are HOPING to spend around 50 euros per person for dinner, although we will certainly splurge at least a few times, if your recommendations so move us! We are looking (of course!) for some great pizza, but also seafood, pasta, and local fare. While my husband and I enjoy wine, we are not oenophiles, so no need to worry about that. (For us, most table wine suffices in Italy). Anyone have any ideas????

Venice, Florence, & Rome Dining Plan - Advice Appreciated

PBSF,

What would you recommend for 2 days in Rome, Florence and Venice WITH AN 11 YEAR OLD foodie (like his parents). We want good food (no need for kid-specific offerings), but pretty casual, that we can eat at not too late in the evening. We are open to some "better" (in terms of dress) restaurants but would love to stay fairly casual and not of stratospheric prices (we are from NY so you have a frame of refernce on price) -- like the tavern portion of Gramercy Tavern (our favorite NYC restaurant). BTW, we are staying in the Veneto area in Rome, near the Piazza San Marco in Venice and near the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
