First, thanks for taking the time to respond to all these queries. Fascinating reading.
As you mentioned, the question about where to look has been posed before. BUT, maybe what people are looking for, and certainly what I'm looking for, is to know which publications are better, more accurate, more timely, less biased, etc.
For instance, I used to check out the Pariscope each week. I switched to Figaroscope and currently have the opinion it's one of the better weekly publications on what's happening across a wide range of food topics.
So, to be more precise, if possible, do you have a favorite/preferred:
weekly guide, (any of the Scopes?)
magazine, (Le Gourmande, Paris Notes?)
guidebook, etc? (Michelin, Pudlo?)
Thanks for taking the time to elaborate. For the average person living in Paris, we can't read everything and we don't have access to a Concierge!
