Visiting Asheville- looking for baby-friendly dining spots!

Yep, we'll be the couple with the baby at lunch and very early dinner- recommendations on Asheville spots? We are thinking Salsa's, Asheville Pizza Company, 12 Bones, and Tupelo Honey. Our Kid-free nights sound like they should be the Admiral and The Southern from other boards...we love Cucina 24, Table but those are definitely not kid-friendly.

Your advice is appreciated! Thanks!

Mix at The Hotel- mixed review or oustanding?

Curious about Mix in Vegas, everything I read on says don't go. What was your experience? It's Alain Ducasse, so it has to be great, right?

Bachelorette Dinner in Vegas for nine ladies?

Hi, I would love a recommendation for group dining in Vegas- the group is nine ladies there for a bachelorette party. We would like something upscale, for around $50 for dinner with casual dress- nice ambiance, great drinks and perhaps French menu or French "inspired". We definitely want a fun atmosphere, but not a club scene.

I was thinking Mix at The Hotel, but my only experience there was for my husband and me on the balcony so I'm not sure if the restaurant is good for groups or not. Probably not according to I would love to try Cut, as we love the LA location, but that's out of our price range.

Advice for first time traveler to Cannes/ Cote d'Azur

What about Chateau Eza's restaurant? It appears to be open this time of year, quality experience?

Advice for first time traveler to Cannes/ Cote d'Azur

This is excellent feedback, thank you! We are there a week, so I am trying to prioritize what I must see, sounds like Eze is a must do!

We will not have a car, and I am hoping the train and bus routes are easy to figure out?
What is a typical meal like at places like Chateau Chevre D/Or and Louis XV?

Advice for first time traveler to Cannes/ Cote d'Azur

Hi, I am traveling for the first time to France in a few weeks and I am starting to research the Cote d'Azur. We are staying in Cannes, and would like to see and eat in Nice, Monaco, Antibes, St-Paul-de-Vence, and anywhere else you may recommend?

We would like to stick with fairly inexpensive lunches and planned on expensive dinners. Please help, as any recommendation would be greatly appreciated- restaurants, places to see and things to do! Thank you!
