Tourist area restaurants in Paris

Thanks for the detailed responses. Its really helpful. And thanks for the warnings about where to stay away from. I certainly don't want to waste my Euros and meals eating in bad restaurants while in Paris..

Tourist area restaurants in Paris

We are a family of four in Paris for a week. We are renting an apartment in the Marais. Since we will be visiting alot of tourist sights, I am looking for suggestions for good restaurants near the Louvre, D'Orsay, Pompidou, Eiffel Tower, Cluny Museum, and Arc de Triomphe. I know this is a lot to ask, but I am sure there are a lot of places to avoid in these area, so any suggestions where we could have a meal and rest our feet after touring would be great. I don't think I want to picnic on these days (because of exhaustion) and am looking for a place to be served, but not too fancy or expensive. Thanks always

Suggestions for Glasgow and Stirling

We will be in Glasgow for three days staying at the Alexander Thomson on Argyll Street. I am looking for suggestions for restaurants near our hotel or easy to get to without a car and near the Riverside Museum. We will also be in Stirling for a day (without a car) so would love suggestions for eating places near the train station. My first choice of cuisine for these places would be Scottish food or gastropubs, but I am open to all suggestions. I'm not really looking for fancy places, since we are with two teenagers, but price is secondary to delicious food. Thanks always.

Where can I buy soft shell crabs?

I believe they are in season now, and I am really craving them. Is there a market where I can buy them? Or a restaurant that does a good job with them? I know they have them at the Bonefish Grille now, but they are fried and stuffed--I'd prefer them sauteed or pan fried. I live in West Broward. Thanks for the suggestions.

Grand Tasting SB Food and Wine Parking Sunday

I have tickets to the Grand Tasting at the beach on Sunday. I am taking my Mom who walks with a cane. We've been before, but always have trouble with parking and getting into the site. Any help with suggestions about where would be the best place to park to minimize the amount of walking she might have to do would be a great help. Does any one know of any handicapped parking nearby or any other suggestions?

Thanksgiving in Sarasota

Any ideas for Thanksgiving dinner? We will be visiting our son at New College and would like to take him out to dinner. A buffet would be OK if not too pricey (under $35 person, if possible) All suggestions would be appreciated. We will be staying near the airport with a car--so surrounding communities are possible. Ocean view would be nice too. Am I asking for too much?

Le Petit Moulinsart--any good?

Thanks so much for the information and the suggestions. Frites Alors looks like a fun place. Maybe we'll try both because I love mussels and Austinaureus' comments really make them sound delicious.

Le Petit Moulinsart--any good?

We will be visiting Montreal and my son is a fan of Tintin. I found out about this restaurant which is decorated with Tintin memorabilia. Is it any good? What should we order and how expensive is it? Thanks for your help.

Restaurants near le Square Phillip

Thank you for the suggestions. We are from Florida, visiting Montreal and it is snowing here. As much as the snow is a fun novelty for us, we would like to minimize our outdoor walking. We went to Vieux Montreal yesterday and would like to stay closer to the square. Maybe something along St. Catherine?

West Broward Thanksgiving suggestions

I am looking for a restaurant for Thanksgiving for six people including teens and seniors. We could travel anywhere in Broward. A nice, not pricey (under $30) buffet would be great, but we are open to all suggestions. Thanks!

Thanksgiving dinner in Palm Coast

I am looking for a restaurant for Thanksgiving for my family--with 2 teens, 2 adults and 2 seniors. We can travel anywhere from Daytona to St. Augustine. Hopefully under $30 a person and maybe with some gourmet flourishes. I'd prefer a sit down meal, but a buffet is OK too. Thanks

Week in Montreal with teens

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm getting hungry already. I guess "fresh" local ingredients are out in December, but any ideas about seasonal, holiday specialties at restaurants would be great.

Week in Montreal with teens

We will be staying in Montreal over the Xmas holiday. We will be staying at the Hilton downtown with no car. I would like suggestions for great restaurants, but nothing too exotic for my sons and preferably places that we can get to by Metro or foot. We like California style cuisine with fresh local ingredients, Asian and Southwestern, as well as French (of course). Is it possible to keep the price down under $25 for entrees? Also, any suggestions for special holiday food events or restaurants that have something special that time of year. Thanks

Mother's Day Fort Lauderdale

I am looking for a restaurant for Mother's Day. My favorite was the buffet brunch at Charley's Crab in Fort Lauderdale, but they have changed to sit-down menu. Any recommendations for a buffet (hopefully under $30/ a person) in the area? Thank you.
