Venice

Mu husband and I will be in Venice for 2 1/2 days first week of May. He does not eat seafood and I love it! Need a few really great "trattoria" style restaurants that serve both. Nothing "new style"...just great homemade uncontrived food.

Bday dinner for 5 women

Need some restaurant ideas for a bday dinner for a friend on the UES. We are 5 women and like great food and want a special atmosphere. Up to about $80.00 total per person is fine.

Landmarc TWC - Salty food

We love Landmarc but agree that they can get a little too salty especially the fries which I normaly love. Still think it is a great value

After landing in Rome we will be immediately driving form Rome to Todi in Umbria and would like to stop for lunch at a simple trattoria with good food. Anything a few miles from the highway is fine. Any recs are appreciated
Thanks

1st time in Paris: traditional brasserie (Balzar, Pied de Cochon, Polidor?)

I love Balzar. The food is good enough. When I am there I know I am in Paris!

Kind of short notice, where should I eat for lunch tomorrow?

If you want to stay in the Bryant Park area go to Croton Reservoir Tavern on 40th street between 6th and Bway. It is good easy food well priced and something for everyone. I work in the garment center and we are so happy this opened

anyone been to St. Lucia ?

We were in St Lucia in July. The best restaurant is definately at Ladera. Very interesting food. Also good is Mango Tree. The biggest problem with St Lucia is that it is very long, north to south and the taxi rides are outragiously expensive. We stayed at Jalousie Plantation in the south and these were both not too far away and very good
