Heading back to HK in cool Feb after last year's Summer trip

I had lunch at Yat Lok on Stanley St. today, so rumors of its demise are obviously greatly exaggerated.

Restaurants in Lille for a weekend?

It's open, I have a reservation. Not a lot of hotel options in central Lille.

I will be busy most of the day Sat. and all of Sunday, but I was looking for reco's on a lunch and dinner place for fri and perhaps a dinner on sat eve. No particular style or price point in mind, just want to hear your favs. Thanks!

Jewish Deli in Paris?

Ah. I went to the blue Finkelstajn on ecouffes. This is not the kind of Jewish deli sandwich I am talking about. I am talking about fresh sliced brisket on rye, not re-heated pre-made pastrami. I had that sandwich as well, and while it was good, not what i'm looking for.

Jewish Deli in Paris?

Hi, I just went to Florence's on rue des Ecouffes and was disappointed. Is there anywhere in Paris to get a great brisket on rye and some matzoh ball soup? Thanks!

Best pizza and pasta in Paris

I actually think Positano is mediocre at best, I live very close by.

Best pizza in the 6eme? (Paris)

I've had decent pizza in Montmartre, but it's hard to justify going all the way to the 18eme for pizza when I could eat something else local.

Best pizza in the 6eme? (Paris)

Haven't found a good pizzeria in my neighborhood (2 years now) and would like to have pizza today. Any suggestions? My typical complaint is that the sauce in most pizzas here doesn't have enough flavor and the entire offering comes off as bland. Thanks!

Best fine dining in Montreal?

Kid friendly not required. I am in my 20's and going with my parents. There is no budget, just looking for the top overall dining experience since we are only planning on doing one nice dinner together while in Montreal.

Looking for french/american/continental, something like this. What places have the top food in Montreal? For a nice dinner with the family. Thanks!

Meatball Parm Sub in Paris?

No. As an American expat living in Paris, sometimes you miss foods from home, what exactly is hard to understand about that? For those of you who don't know what the sandwich is, it's meatballs, marinara sauce and mozzerella on hero bread. I don't see what this has to do with fast food chains mentioned above.

Meatball Parm Sub in Paris?

Is there a decent meatball parm to be found in Paris. I have tried cooking my own with ingredients from the carrefour but it's just not the same.

Best "Taco" in Paris?

evil or not, I haven't been able to find the Old El Paso hard shells and I have looked all over the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7eme.

Best Steak Tartare in the 6eme?

I am aware of the best in Paris thread, but I am looking for best in my neighborhood. If you know any great places in the 6eme, please, do tell.

Best "Taco" in Paris?

They sell El Paso at my Carrefour, but it's the soft shell taco kits, not the crispy shells. I looked at several supermarkets around my area the 6eme and across the Marais and found no crispy shells. If you know of a place, do tell.

Best cocktail bars in Paris

Prescription Cocktail Club at 23 Rue Mazarine in the 6eme makes some nice cocktails. The Florida Taragon is my favorite.

Best hamburger in Paris?

Where is Coffee Parisien? I saw someone say Rue Princesse. I live about a half a block from Rue Princesse in the 6eme and I don't recall seeing that place.

Best "Taco" in Paris?

I am not talking about authentic, "real" tacos with cuts of steak and freshly made soft shells. I am more looking for the Americanized crispy shell + seasoned ground beef variety. I was going to cook them myself in honor of Cinco De Mayo tomorrow, but none of my local groceries stores seem to stock crispy shells. Odd the things you miss when you live abroad isn't it?

Anywhere for good tacos in Paris?

I will accept Americanized tacos with ground beef. I'm on the left bank, but open to heading wherever.

Best Burger above 55th St?

I assumed Melon's, Clarke's and Jackson Hole would be suggested but was wondering if there might be others I'm missing.

I am looking for a great place to grab lunch, preferably with outdoor seating so as to enjoy this great weather. The grid is between 55th and 65th St. and Madison to 3rd. Please let me know what you've got, type of cuisine doesn't matter as long as it's good.
