stop off point between london and cartmel?

Thanks again for everything. Setting off at 10 tomorrow morning and am still trying to get organized! Good thing my kids love to eat. My parents aren't used to long drives so it'll be interesting! Will let you know how it goes.

Thank you - you are a life saver!
I am guessing I am asking a dumb question but as you may guess, I am not from around here - what is the big barn website?

Thanks so much for the prompt reply. I am heading from London to Maryport with 2 small children (3 and 6) and my parents so am getting quite nervous about how to make the trip! Am thinking I will take the M6 up and am trying to minimize driving time as much as possible. What would you suggest would be a good bet close to the M6 with my brood, my love for good food and hopefully at least half a pint since I will be driving! Thank you!

Food/farmers market advice for north Cumbria?

Hi everyone

I am heading north to north Cumbria with my parents and 2 young children (3 and 6 yrs) and am looking for places to eat and shop for food. Any advice? I've seen several posts but they are around the Ambleside area whereas I will be nearer Maryport. Trying to avoid driving too much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Driving from Savona to Pisa

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the advice. Looks like I'll hit some of the smaller town instead. Being stuck with 2 children in traffic will not be good! Will report when I return!

Traveling to Monte Carlo with 2 small kids

Hi! I am traveling with my two children 3 and 6 to Monte Carlo next week and would love any recommendations on restaurant/food places? Not looking for anything fancy - good food that is hopefully reasonably priced in a place which would welcome children. My kids are relatively well behaved thankfully. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Driving from Savona to Pisa

Hi!
My son just learnt about the Leaning Tower of Pisa and I thought it would be good fun bringing him there while we spend a week in Italy near Savona. However the trip is quite long and I was hoping to ask for recommendations on where we could stop for breaks/snacks/lunch? And meals in Pisa too? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Last minute trip to Rio with 2 small children (3 and 6)

Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. I will search the forum and see if there is anything else I can find. Thankfully my children are generally adventurous eaters and will try most things (especially if there is nothing else!) Will let you know how it goes!
One quick question. Everyone loves juices. Is it safe tto buy juice from the street? Also, is the water safe to drink or should I be buying bottled water all the time (even for tooth brushing?)

Last minute trip to Rio with 2 small children (3 and 6)

We've just decided to take a last minute trip to Rio in a week for spring break and I sadly know nothing about the food and where one should go that will be good for children. We're all pretty adventurous eaters and the children behave generally well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We will be staying at the Sheraton Rio which I understand is in Leblon. Happy to travel around town, assuming that it's safe with the 2 kids? Thanks for any help!

Need help remembering restaurant in DUMBO

Thanks everyone. I thought it was supposed to be a great breakfast/brunch spot that was getting a lot of write-ups. Guess I may have remembered wrongly. I think I'll stick to an almond croissant at almondine!

Need help remembering restaurant in DUMBO

I remember reading about a great breakfast/brunch restaurant in the DUMBO area. Unfortuantely, all I recall was looking up google maps and realising it was 3-4 blocks away from Bubby's Brooklyn. Does anyone have an idea as to what I was reading about? Thanks in advance!

Best place to buy prime rib

Hi,

Dad's 60th birthday is coming up and I wanted to cook a really special meal. Does it make a difference where I get it from? Only 'high end' place I can think of is Lobel's. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Delhi restaurants and spas?

Am going to spend a day and a half in Delhi. Looking for chowhound recommendations. Have searched the boards but oddly enough there is a lot on Mumbai but not much on Delhi. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Husband has a weak tummy so no street food I am afraid. Also, this may not be the right forum but any suggestions on spas? Thanks much!
