Several months ago I was taken to a restaurant on Rue de Verriere (near La Pave). This place was downstaires, very big and the decor was like the inside of an old stone church. The portions were huge. The owners/managers are Indian and Chinese.Does anyone know the name of this place? Barry BMC0199@aol.com
Recently returning to Paris for holiday we found that our favourite cafe/restaurant 'Temps Perdu' has closed. It was on Rue de Seine in the 6th. There appeared to be builders in behind the closed doors - we are hoping it's going to re-open. Anyone know anything??Many thanks in advance, Houghton

Can anyone recommend a good, not overly expensive, restaurant for Christmas day. We live in south-west France, but spending Christmas in Paris between the Louvre and Opera. We would have liked a traditional turkey dinner, but it's not essential. Location, I suppose, is not critical, since the Metro runs constantly, so happy to travel for a good recommendation. I did email our hotel and asked if they could recommend somewhere, their reply was 'Oui'......nothing else, very helpful indeed!! I hope someone can help, and I thank you for your time.
Where would you recommend taking someone who just has an afternoon in Paris for lunch? Need to be near the RER B for the airport - that is why I thought of the Luxembourg area; know there are a lot of great places in the area, but would love something authentic and reasonable with a great atmosphere - ideas?

Does anyone know any supermarkets that accepts restaurant tickets as payment for general food shopping? I really would appreciate any answers please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks in advance.
I'm a long-time expat, and I've been trying to compile a list of coffee shops in Paris. No, not cafés with little tables and espresso, but "coffee shops" as in filtered coffee, American newspapers, free wi-fi. So I thought I'd share my list so far and see what others out there might know. Most of the choices below don't totally have a coffeeshop feel, but the one big exception is Sugarplum Cake Shop, which feels totally like an American coffee shop. La Ferme Opéra 55 Rue Saint-Roch 75001 Paris Illy Cafe (no wifi) They of course serve the Illy brand coffee and have a variety of unusual Italian-type specialty drinks. They also have newspapers set out and jelly-stuffed croissants. 13, Rue Auber, 75009 Paris Malongo Café (free wifi for 20 minutes) They serve their own coffee, the Malongo brand, counter service and a nice change of pace from going to a Starbucks. 50 Rue St André des Arts 75006 Paris Sugarplum Cake Shop (free wifi). www.sugarplumcakeshop.com By far, this is the most authentic as an American style coffee shop, with free refills on filtered coffee and rice krispie treats! What's also fascinating about this place is that they are a specialty cake shop (for some lucky lady dreaming about a Wedding Cake in Paris). 68 Rue du Cardinal Lemoine 75005 Paris Phone: +33 (0) 1 46 34 07 43 Starbucks (No free wifi, you have to pay) Mostly I've left Starbucks off this list, but this is an exception location. It seems to be located in a sumptuous former bank, with faux-marble columns, mirrors everywhere, overstuffed chairs and an early 20th century faux-Baroque painting on the ceiling. It's really only good in the morning, otherwise too crowded. 3, boulevard des Capucines 75002 Paris Le Fumoir 6 rue de l’amiral Coligny 75001 Paris
