  1. I dined there a few weeks ago. Dinner was wonderful. Friends were staying at the Relais and booked at the time of their reservation.
  2. Thanks Kim, I leave tomorrow so i appreciate your timely answer. Paris is a poem pressed into service as a city
  3. Let me know if you need information. I lived on Newbury Street for years til I moved across the Bridge near MIT.
  4. Legal Seafood at Copley Place, Voile on Newbury Street, Sonsie.. for people watching, Loads of outside sitting on Newbury st Espalier on Boylston Street.
  5. Is it true that these days it is mostly Americans dining there? That you must arrive at 7 to get a table? Will they sit a party of six?
  6. cr.aigie is very good but I prefer the nearby Rendezvous on Mass Ave
  7. definately, both suggestions. Arrows is the more expensive but the view at the other faces the ocean

  10. I loved Jaques Genin's chocolate boutique and cafe, now comes along a more ambitious chocolate restaurant/boutique. http://www.ipreferparis.net/2011/02/sweet-week-3-un-dimanche-a-paris.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+IPreferParis+%28I+Prefer+Paris%29
  11. here is the Baudy' http://www.giverny.fr/Gardens-of-the-HOTEL-BAUDY.html
  12. There are two places in Giverny that I love. The pricier one is Les Jardins des Giverny. http://www.jardinsdegiverny.com/photos the other is the charming antiente Hotel Baudy. Not a hotel now but it was when the American painters came to be near Monet. I'll find the site and post it.
  13. How sad to refer to handsome efficient waiters as eye candy. The French don't do that. No matter how good looking, if you are not good at the job, you are out!

  15. I can still picture her riding around in her little car with a wooden spoon attached to her antenna (so she coud find her car in a lot, she said) We shopped the same market in Boston before I knew who she was. The now, no longer, Malben's where she had a food locker. They had the best cheeses and Olives in barrels, honey from all over the world what a loss in the closing. We never again had a market as good. Later Julia would go to Savanor's in Cambridge where we both lived but that will never replace Malben's. They opened a branch in Boston. You can buy rxotic meats but it's a very tiny shop.
  16. It was so long ago that it would be unfair to judge the food, but we stumbled on it and were taken on a small boat to the restaurant. I was charmed.
  17. Maybe out of Print? not sure but each book in the series that mentioned where to stay and eat were right on. Recipes very simple. The Gastronomique series is published by Abbyville.
  18. This vineyard also makes my favorite rosè. Lula has a very popular cookbook. http://www.domainetempier.com/en/sommaire.htm
  19. I enjoyed your review. I was there the last week in March and I found that the Regalarde was not as good as the original and they seemed to give poor service to the non-French( who were very quiet). I , on the other hand found Chez Ami very comfortable and good service. The reality maybe who you get as a server who can enhance or destroy the experience.
  20. OHHH! one of my favorites things to eat.Lookinging fotward to answers. I've tried all the brasseries and my favorite so far has been Aigues-Mortes in the South of France.
  21. Friends and I had dinner there last Friday. It was wonderful and the service very good but two in our party were staying there, so I'm sure we were made to feel special.
  22. Abby, it sounds ideaL for us ; http://www.lespapillesparis.fr/EN_index.html
