Paris - something a little different

thanks for the tips. I am staying in the 11th, so was looking at maybe Pierre Sang or Le Mary Celeste to fit the bill. Anyone recommend these?

I am only there two days and my current plan is

Lunch (Saturday) - Pierre Sang or Le Mary Celeste
Dinner (Saturday) - Chateaubriand, Septime or Bones

Lunch (Sunday) - le Cafe de Musees
Dinner (Sunday) - Clamato or Le Mary Celeste

Paris - something a little different

Thanks, Ptipois. Toyo looks a little more than i was aiming at but Tricotin looks right up my street.

Paris - something a little different

Good day

I am going over to paris for a weekend in March. Although i am excited to try some of the bistrots (am thinking Chateaubriand, Clamato perhaps), my wife is really into asian food.

Are there any asian restaurants in paris that anyone could recommend that offer something a little different from what we get in London, for example are there any French/Asian fusion restaurants or, say, a Cambodian restaurant?

Any help grratefull received. Am happy to provide asian restaurant tips in London in return,.

OLA or Bazaar

Thanks everybody for your replies. I have booked at Bazaar and will let you know how I get on.

If anyone has any other suggestions for the Florida Keys, these would be gratefully received/

Thanks

OLA or Bazaar

I am travelling to Miami and the Keys for a week in November and would like to do one higher priced meal. At the moment I am considering OLA and Bazaar.

Based solely on menu, I would probably go for OLA because coming from Europe I have access to lots of Spanish food but limited South American (save a few peruvian places and argentinean steakhouses); however Bazaar seems to be more highly thought of.

Which would you recommend for a British visitor?

Also, for other meals I am considering Oak Tavern (lunch), Joe's Stone Crab (lunch), Unami Burger (dinner) and Pubbelly Sushi (dinner). Anything I am especially missing out on?

Thanks
Richard

Kikunoi Roan

I am going to Kikunoi Roan in October. Can anyone suggest which of the three dinner menus (13,650yen, 15,750yen, and 18,900yen) we should go for? My instinct is the cheapest one, as I assume the more expensive one's simply use more unusual ingredients (rather than more food)

Can anyone confirm?

Also can anyone recommend a reasonably priced sushi restaurant in Kyoto for dinner?

queues at Momofuku Ssam

i am travelling to New York in November and working out an itinerary. I would like to go to Momofuku Ssam on the Friday night. Are the queues horrendous? What is the best time to try?

Do you have to queue outside or is there a bar you can sit it?

Manhattan restaurant with parents - The Dutch?

Is it impossible to get a reservation after 6:30pm?

Manhattan restaurant with parents - The Dutch?

I am coming to NYC from the UK in November; by chance I have a one night cross over with my parents. I'd like to take them for dinner. We are all quite into our food.

I have considered The Dutch as I like the look of the menu, but have heard it is quite noisy; would this be the case on a Sunday night and will it be possible to get a reservation at 1930?

Any other suggestions for something classically New York with an interesting menu?
