Paris and Normandy

Last night we ate out and had very good 3 course dinners for $76 for two, including tip and tax, but no alcohol. I would call that "mid price" for most places. That is a little more than we usually spend, but what I would expect to pay here (Detroit) for that level of dining.

In fact I'm not sure what mid price would be for Paris/Normandy, but I guess I mean we don't have to go to the top (that is very expensive) places. On the other hand we don't mind spending a little more for a memorable dining experience once in a while.

Thanks foir the reply.

Thanks for the tip, but I discovered the 19/20th Holiday and it it is causing us to redo our arrangements to Normandy and days in Paris.

Paris and Normandy

We will be in Paris for 6-7 days, staying in the 17th, not far from the Arc de Triomphe, then 3-4 days in Normandy, statying outside Bayeux with a car. Any recommendations for places to dine in these locals? We would prefer local food, "mid priced" but with a few "splurges". This is in May and is our first trip to France.

Thanks,

A Month In Scottsdale

We will be spending a month in Scottsdale starting the end of this week. We would like recommendations for dinner places of all kinds, especially at "reasonable" prices.

Some specific questions: Does the area have a "Chinatown" where places might be open on Christmas ( a family tradition)? Two years ago we had trouble finding any and would appreciate even some recommnedations for good Chinese food at anytime.
Also helpful would be some suggestions for take out food.

Thanks,
