Onteora and Blue Mountain Bistro

Hi, I'm planning a wedding at Onteora in upstate New York and was wondering if anyone had any reviews for Onteora and for their caterers, Blue Mountain Bistro. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, I'm planning a wedding at Onteor and before I signed... would you be able to let me know how your experience was with Blue Mountain? Thank you.

Five days/nights in Aix en Provence

Hi, We are renting an apartment for 5 days and nights (Sat thru Thur morn) in Aix en Provence during the first week of May. We'll be traveling to Avignon, Chateanuef de Pape, Luberon area, and Cassis. Would you be able to recommend any good restaurants in or near Aix and around in the above areas? We'll also have a kitchen and I'd love to be able to cook a meal. Are there any other markets in Aix other than the one on Thursday? Thank you all so much.

Lunch/dinner in Antibes

Hi, We're in Antibes for a day and evening. Would anyone be able to recommend a couple of restaurants? I've heard that Le Comptoir is supposed to be a good choice. Thank you.

Special dinner in Paris

Thank you all for your great comments. Souphie, you ask excellent questions. Here are my answers - We are not picky eaters. It can be classic French or new world French, etc. as long it's French. We love to eat everything. Fish pork duck chicken. I'm not looking for the most exp meal in Paris or the newest or most talked about or a 3 star. The human experience is definitely important and a great setting would be an added bonus. I do prefer a place that is not too stuffy but where the staff makes you feel at home or well taken care of even if done in a formal manner. Quite honestly, I don't know enough about current innovations so I'm not sure it is a must. We live in New York and this will be my first visit to Paris. As someone who obsesses about food (via eating, cooking, reading, experiences, etc) I'm surprised that it is only now (in my early 30s) that I am going to experience all that Paris has to offer. As for budget, I'm looking for a meal that we will dream of and talk about many years later but isn't extremely expensive either. I think our max might be around $300. If it's less even better. We live in new York. I hope this gives you a better idea of what I am looking for. Thank you so much for helping me out.

Special dinner in Paris

Hi, My boyfriend and I will be in Paris next week and would like to splurge on one dinner while there. My top 2 picks at the moment are Laperouse and Taillevent. Is one better than the other? Is there another restaurant I should be considering? We are HUGE foodies and are looking for a great experience and an incredible meal. Thank you so much.
