Osterie & Locande ... de France?


Recommended Posts

Could you explain more?

Well, it's a book.

But it's not a typical guide book; you don't find the best restaurants listed, but you do find some great ones that you probably won't find in the books catering to "the best" (whatever that means). But they have a viewpoint: local, traditional, slow. It's the kind of book where, if you had no agenda and were just wandering around and suddenly found yourself hungry, you can look up what's nearby and have high confidence that you can get a well-cooked meal, as opposed to finding that your Frommer's doesn't have anything nearby and just winging it randomly. It's a good enough resource that you can imagine using it as a reason to drive down a particular road in a particular direction, just to get to eat at the other end :)
