Mammoth Lake: Rafters or Lakefront?

We had dinner at the Rafters last fall and it was good. Needed a little work in terms of the staff, but I've heard it's gotten better. They were very friendly and helpful, just new. I just heard Frederic was let go, so no first hand experience, but Mammoth Mountain owns th restaurNt and have leased all their restaurants to the Levy group who have high standards. Being a local I will check out Lakefront and report back.

Mammoth

Sorry I didn't catch this sooner. We are locals are were having dinner at Nevados on the 16th. Others restaurants we like are Petras, the restaurant at the Westin, Robertos, Gomez's in the Village. Skadi's gets good reviews and I think the new Rafters does also. IMHO, these are much better than picking up picnic food at the market.

Suggestions in the 7th?

Good to know what the closest streets are. I will forge ahead with some more research and hopefully reservations soon. Thank you.

Wow, what a great menu. I love all the info on the staff, too. It looks just like what we would all enjoy. Thank you!

Sorry, I inadvertently replied to the wrong person!

Our budget would be between 75-100 euros a person. Except for organ meat, we like everything, especially fish. Italian with a French twist might be fun to try in Paris. Bistros sound like the type of place we four would enjoy.

Thank you all for confirming my belief in reservations. My husband and I always make them when just the two of us travel and we do not want to be disappointed with our week in Paris.
I will re-review the forums on the 7th. How long a street (miles?) is Rue de Grenelle? I am trying to stay within a 15-20 minute walk for our evening meal. After a day of sightseeing we won't want to venture too far.
We won't be wearing shorts/tennis shoes, etc. The boys just don't want to take a jacket.
Merci.

Our apartment is at 199 Rue de Grenelle. My ideal food day would be to have breakfast in (maybe grab a croissant at a nearby bakery) hit the streets for a day of sightseeing, have a late lunch out, come back to the apartment for a rest and then walk to dinner. On the days we have a late lunch, we girls would probably just want soup or salad with bread and wine, but the fellows would want a full dinner.

Both of those places sound wonderful and just our style.

Our adult family of four will be renting in the 7th (Rue de Grenelle) the week of February 28th through March 8th. Our son doesn't want a "plan" for dinner every night, but a few suggestions might help. My husband and I love good food and I speak some French so we will not be shy about places where English is not spoken. Food over atmosphere is our preference and we don't want to dress up. We'll be coming off a month long trip in Egypt.

Picnic lunch for Alcatraz tour

We are taking the 11:00 A.M. Alcatraz tour on Sunday morning and would like to buy a picnic lunch before we leave. I can't seem to find any places that open that early on Sunday. We're staying at the Marriott on 4th Street and could probably order some takeout from them, but would prefer something yummier than restaurant food. Suggestions would be appreciated.
