  1. We have had two good meal at Ampurdan(or Emporada), a catalonian style restaurant not too far from the Dali Museum in Figueres. There are also some great beach towns in that area for seafood, although I dont know what is open in September.

  2. Moderator's Note: This post is about dining at Cru since Gallante has left the building.

    Was wondering as I was thinking of dining there on Saturday, but dont know how much, if any of a change in the food and service.

  3. Wanted to just follow up. Cafe Fauchon for breakfast was a disaster. The door was locked, we knocked, was told they were closed, even though it was 10:00 and they said they opened at 9:30. 1 poached egg, two cups of coffee, baguette, 45Euros. They spilled hot coffee over two of us, with barely an apology. No pain au chocolat. Just croissants, baguette, and minimal egg selections. 20 minutes to get breakfast. The room, however is really cute, but the experience a huge disappointment. When I asked the manager for a business card to send them the bill for cleaning my coat, they looked at me like I was insane. On an aside, dinner at La Rotonde in Montparnasse was really good.

  4. ended up at Moti Mahal, which we enjoyed. Good service. 3 course dinner special through top table at 20£ a very good deal for the quality. Had a chili squid starter, and vegetable kofta with

    saffron yoghurt sauce that was wonderful. My dining companions enjoyed their chicken tikka and lamb curry as well. At the discount, it is a no brainer to return.
