  1. Le Georges is a modern,trendy eatery in the Pompidou Center..Chez Georges is a classic bistro at 2 rue de Mail, near  the place des Victoires

    classic chez georges bistro is, as u state, n the 2nd arr.

    the other is in the 17th arr

    the 3rd, as u also report, n the pompidou - personally have not visited.


    only the chez jean's left :shock:

  2. I can only address 2 of your multiple same-name houses, both Chez Paul.  One is located on the Place Dauphine on Ile de la Cite.  It has two entrances, one on the Place and the other on the Quai des Orfevres.  This Paul serves classic bistro dishes in a typical old-time bistro setting, including a famously squeaky kitchen door.  A second Paul is a couple of blocks east of Bastille on the corner of rue de Charonne and rue de Lappe.  It is also an old bistro, but has some updated dishes on the menu.  From time to time, this place is very popular and reservations are needed.  Both of these Pauls are inexpensive to moderate in price.  I should note that we haven't visited either of these two in at least half dozen years.

    The third Paul is, I believe, a considerably hipper neo-bistro in the 13th near the Butte aux Cailles.

    merci margaret :biggrin: the 4 i know are:

    Restaurant Paul 4e 15 pl Dauphine

    maître Paul 6e in St. Germain

    chez paul 11e east of the Bastille

    chez Paul 13e Butte Aux Cailles

    only Jean's & Georges's left to clarify :cool:

  3. baruch - -How is it any more confusing than buying a Gevrey-Chambertin from a producer located in Morey-St-Denis -- Robert Groffier, for example?

    who said THAT wasn't confusing, s'il vous plaît? :raz:

  4. purchased a '00 Dom. du Granit Moulin-A-Vent Appellation Moulin-A-Vent Contrôllée, Alfred Gino Bertolla, Vigneron - La Rochelle 69840 Chénas - France

    question: was/is this beaujolais produced in moulin-a-vent or in chénas??????????

    The vineyard is in Moulin-a-Vent, the winery is in Chenas. Is is common for Beaujolais producers to own vineyards in more than one Cru. They are still estate bottled.

    that i understand. however, with the 'cru' being located in the Moulin-a-Vent area, vs. the "winery" being located in Chénas, it does get a little fuzzy as to exactly what cru this is, n'est-ce pas??

  5. purchased a '00 Dom. du Granit Moulin-A-Vent Appellation Moulin-A-Vent Contrôllée, Alfred Gino Bertolla, Vigneron - La Rochelle 69840 Chénas - France

    question: was/is this beaujolais produced in moulin-a-vent or in chénas??????????

  6. did you scroll through the rest of that story (the little up down arrows)?

    the last paragraph:

    "...The brothers struggled to name this mighty sauce. The three brothers had a consensus agreement on the name "Mexican Joe" and were satisfied until their father insisted that it should be an American name..."maybe Texas...,"

  7. in USA, sierra nevada seems to fit the bill as most consistent, most favorful; therefore, most favorite.

    I'd suggest you try Alesmith (Anvil and XPA), Allagash (Tripel Reserve and White), Ommegang Hennepin, North Coast (Old Rasputin and Red Seal Ale), Lagunitas Maximus, Hair of the Dog Fred, Brooklyn Brewing (Black Chocolate Stout, Blanche de Brooklyn), Victory Brewing (Storm King Stout, Prima Pils), Rogue (Shakespeare Stout, Dead Guy Ale).

    These would just be to start to be honest, but any and all should give you a good idea of what is available from US brewers that is a) flavourful, b) consistent and c) dramatically superior to anything Sierra Nevada produces. That is not to slight Sierra Nevada. For a "semi-macro" brewery they do a good job. But they simply cannot compete with the micro Craft breweries when it comes to quality.

    thx VERY much, BUT are these readily available in NYC??

  8. bars/rests that ARE legal can have only 4 or fewer owners. its amazingly how crowded these places are, & the bar-type food served is now better than ever :biggrin: usually these places have several tv's; therefore the patrons seem extremely pleased at being able to eat, drink, watch several sporting events, a la the yankees & the nets last nite, & smoke - all @ once :raz:

    funny there were no fights, people seemed pretty civil & happy, no complaints or rantings, no bashing 1 way or the other, no one hanging outside to disturb or to litter, bartender did not smoke, but did not ramble on about secondhand smoke.

    just an update report to add to the thread. :biggrin:

  9. What I appreciate about beer, is what I appreciate about wine and that's the variety. Whenever I am traveling, I enjoy the local beer. Perhaps it's just that they taste more of a place than beers that can be ordered all over the world. Of course that doesn't make them great.

    agree, i.e., "when in Rome, ... "; however, in USA, sierra nevada seems to fit the bill as most consistent, most favorful; therefore, most favorite.

  10. another update: last nite's leg of lamb excellent, & the ms.'s HB also very good; however

    the service leaves room for improvement, & the bartender helper made my gibson with OLIVES :shock: & then when notified, removed them & threw n the very small cocktail onions :shock::shock: my table just happened to be in full sight of this faux pas :blink:

  11. HAVE eaten @ mesa grill & didn't particularly like, & will break down & try bolo; but how can any1 dislike flay??? he's a GOLFER & is dating stephanie march from law & order :biggrin:

    as for emeril, i just wonder how he can be on the food network 24hrs/da, 7da/wk, 52wks/yr!!!?? :raz:

    seriously; have eaten @ emerils in new orleans, & unfortunately thought it was excellent :angry:

  12. merci, but appears to be more difficult than appears as per the domaine leroy example above.

    if i understand u correctly, a burgundy produced by the domaine leroy will say just that?? & a burgundy bottled by the domaine leroy acting as negociant will day just THAT, n'est-ce pas?

  13. 1 word, FL JIM

    AWESOME :biggrin:

    question, s'il vous plait:

    as i have inquired before - moulin-à-vent is referred to as the "king" of beaujolais; fleurie as the "queen; is 1 of the other cru's referred to as the "prince"? i have read somewhere, but have forgotten.

    u state the moulin-à-vent is the most burgundy-like, which does make sense since IT is referred to as the "king" of the beaujolais; but again to clear up, i have also read that chenas & morgons are ALSO considered to be burgundy-like!!??

    in your opinion, how many & which one (s's) of the crus are considered burgundy-like?????

  14. my 2 cents - one MUST make the pilgrimmage to l'ami louis 3e @least once, & before the old-timers have simply retired or passed on to that côte de boeuf in the sky.

    for us, its every visit. maybe bonne chance or whatever, but every time we've been, mostly, if not all, french vs. the oft-stated "all-american" clientele!

  15. Baruch -- the classic wine parings are port/stilton, sauternes/roquefort, muenster/gewurtztraminer, gorgonzola/amarone, chevere/sancerre, camebert/montrachet.  Open for debate, I presume, but these are the time-honored ones.

    Busboy --  If you were serious about your tourist post -- skip the Eiffel Tower and go to the top of the Pompidou center for a better view with no line.

    merci beaucoup! & with an époisses?? a burgundy??

    & busboy, @the jules verne 2nd level tour eiffel, the chocolate truffles were "almost" as good as the view :biggrin:

  16. Baruch -- I'm not sure how you mean to compare the wines.  If you are looking at ageability, Fleurie is so pretty when young, I would never think of aging it -- drink within the first four years of the vintage.  Regnié and Juliénas can take some aging.  But the producer is going to be more important than the village the wine came from.

    i guess, in terms of comparison, beaujolais is generally divived into 3 :

    full-bodied (therefore, able-to-age better): chenas, morgon, moulin-à-vent, juliénas, régnié (?)

    med-bod: fleurie, brouilly, côte de brouilly

    lite-bod: st-amour, chiroubles
