Happy Friday from Aunt Sandy!


I've been getting ready for a big trip I'm taking to Paris and London one week from today, so sorry for the slight absence I've had on the blog. Anyone have any great food/restaurant recommendations for me? I'd greatly appreciate 'em! I'll post pics from all of the spots I visit.

Watch out for Emeril.I hear he is in London and wants to kick your ass for needlessly belittling him.

I am jealous, I hope you have a great time. I have only been to London but we were recommended to go get dinner at a local pub, it was very good. I would recommend you do the same.

For Paris, just watch Ina's and Paula's shows, they will show you the most expensive places to eat.

Anyway have a great trip!!!!

Have a great trip! The food in England was hit or miss for me, but you really can't go wrong with the local pubs. GL!

Georges in Paris, on top of the Centre Pompidou. Expensive but worth it, at least for a drink while watching the sun set over Paris. Bon voyage!

Jacob,
In London have a meal at the tapas bar in the basement of world-famous Harrod's department store (just down the street from the Knightsbridge Tube stop). Pricey but you can control costs by the number of plates you order.Everything is wonderful butthe octopus and the cod are perfect. Top it up with a glass of sherry or Spanish red wine. The tapas bar is just off Harrod's Food Hall, a journey through which will drive any foodie crazy with joy. While you're at Harrod's, check out the kitschy Egyptian tomb that the store's owner, Mohammed Fayez (father of Dodi Fayez) erected as a shrine in honor of Dodi and Princess Diana.

Have a great trip!

Whoa! I'm watching NBC's "The Choppping Block" with Marco Pierro White, which was apparently resumed after the network halted it mid-run. So presumably this was filmed late last year or early this year. In the restaurant challenge one of the customers complaining about the food she got was none other than Katie, the NFNS contestant who was thrown off this week.Very weird and out of context!

I know it's summer, but in Paris, Angelina's is a must for hot chocolate. You can even buy some of their chocolate blend to take home. Have a great trip!

Whoa awesome vaca, Jacob! Unfortunately I've been only once when I was in high school, early nineties, and at the time was only interested in the touristy parts. So I can't recommomend an actual place. However, in Paris, a simple lunch under the Eiffel Tower is quite delightful. I would find that open air market that Ina and even Pauler went too, get some cheese and wine and a baguette and chill under the tower. It's a pretty memorable experience. Bitch. <-----sorry, that was me str8 up h8tin' lol!

It's been a while since I was over, but there was a great little restaurant on West End called the Borscht and Tears. Both My father and I used to travel to London regularly on business and this was a favorite of ours. Obviously the Borscht is superior, but the Chiken Kiev was really special as well. Als, if you can check out the multiple cellars (lower floors). There's a bar down there that will have you thinking of cold European nights with smooth sprirts and spicy conversation! and

I love paris and just recently went in April. the best restaurants are the ones in the neighborhoods away from the touristy places. Near your hotel any bakery is great for breakfast (just about every two or three shops in most places there is a bakery so it shouldn't be to hard to find).

Finally to the eating- Le Petit Pont nice cafe to watch people go by and see the Seine and Notre Dame at night or a sunset

A bakery you have to go to is in the jewish quarter in Le Marais its called Sacha Finkelsztajn - good strudel, challah (hale) and bagels.

Again in Le Marais a bit pricey but good l'Ambroisie- seasonal ingredients

In Les Halles La Fresque very friendly in that you sit at big long table in which you can interact with others and good prices

I could go on but the list is endless! just walk around or take the metro to some station get out and find a restaurant that looks like locals are in or stop someone in the street and ask and NEVER EVER call the waiters garçon that's why they are usually snooty call them monsieur or madame

I strongly suggest you go to the candy store under the Louvre and get some carambars (YUMMY caramel candies but they also have a fruit variety, you can't find them in the states!) I'm sure you can find them in some other neighborhood store for less
