I am confused about the different types of eating establishments in Paris. I know that a restaurant only serves lunch and dinner, has more formal service (whatever that means) and may be more expensive. What confuses me mostly is the difference between a café, a bistro and a brasserie. I know they usually have "service continuu", have less formal service, all seem to serve alcohol and have lower prices than restaurants, but what distinguishes one from the other?
I happen to be holding a reservation at Frenchies, a table for 4, for the 21:30 seating for Thanksgiving evening, 22 November. It's a prix fix menu, around 45 euros per person, etc. And my clients cancelled at the last minute. Anyone who wants it, it's all yours! As you may know, this resto is booked in advance for months. Just to be clear, the meal is not free, I am merely offering up the reservation. Contact me by email, first come, first served, and I'll give you the reservation details. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking for small beetroot of different colours. I have never seen them in France and I would love to buy them. Ideally, they would be Baby Beets and fresh (not cooked). I would love to know where to purchase the yellow ones and the striped ones, or anything that is not the usual red. Thank you for your help.
Does anyone know somewhere we can buy rice from the Carmargue? We currently buy the whole grain rice from a local health-food shop in the 17th, but its expensive. Probably because it's Bio. Normal supermarkets such as Franprix and Carrefour City, don't seem to stock it. (Neuilly/17th area.)
We live near Toulouse for 9 years, this year we want to spend new year's eve and new years day in Paris, we have accommodation 10 mins walk just south of the champs elyse. Any good suggestions would be great fully recieved , we are a couple 50 +, the idea of the eiffel tower restaurant is great but the price is well out of our range at 200 plus each!
Dear Paris Persons Our family of four has one week in Paris Jan 3 to Jan 10. I am considering an apartment in the 2nd in Rue Favart, nearest Metro is Richeliu - Drouot. I am wondering if the local cares or restaurants will be open as it is so early in the New Year and close to the business district not tourist district. Any advice please post.Thanks Geoff
