Parisian Dining! #2

Lori,

 

These are very good places that are as expensive as #1. Within a block of the Ren. is this wonderful place.  Very reasonable, very friendly.

Just a block or so away from the Marriott C-E, is a great local place for frog legs.

For great Parisian steak, go with both of these, they are within walking distance of the Marriott C-E. Only steak on the menu, but it is great at both places! Cafe de la Paix, is one of my favorites, just across the street from the Opera, it is a great place to dine and people watch.

      SS,

       

      Thanks for your comment! 

       

      I pay homage for my blessings everyday.  Just appreciate having a chance to experience these, "Simply wonderful" times.

        You have been and continue to be the Steward that I wanted and an excellent choice -- tell Jasper I would include him as well but forgot.  Seriously when does you term end and can you be renewed?

          SS,

           

          Thanks for your kind words!  I have no idea when this term ends, and it will not change my support for Marriott.  I want nothing from them, other than a great product.  The people I have been able to associate with, thanks to this site, has been wonderful.

           

          Thanks again, SS!

            Jerry,

            I echo SS's praise.  I am honored to learn from the all the highly experienced travelers on this site, and you are one of the best examples we have!  I think we probably have till around the end of April, since I think they said it would be only a 6 month term.  If that's true, we have a lot of good choices for new replacements on this site, if they're interested in applying, when it comes time

              If I wasn't traveling all the time, I would never have time to report on the wonderful things that I experience each week.  It really makes it fun when other insiders share little "Tidbits" about their experiences in a locale with me.

                  Yes, I go to Cleveland, and it sometimes get's a "Bad rap", there are many nice things there as well.  Will do another "Travel story" on Cleveland on the next trip.  It really helps when others point out unique places to visit while in these towns.  It seems to make the travel so much more fun and challenging.  Sometimes it is tough to find these places and sometimes they are not what you expect, but at least you know, because you have been there.

                    Cleveland is a soft target and I should have picked my hometown Pittsburgh for that. Actually there's a lot good with Cleveland and there are plenty of Ohioans who'd live nowhere else

                      You can't imagine the two wonderful dinners I recently had in Pittsburgh.  We had to take a cable car and I think one was Benihana's and the other was a wonderful place that viewed the city.  It was a night of a thunderstorm and the lightning was immense, but what a show.  The Ren.  was a lovely hotel and I see it is rated as on of Marriott's top properties.

                       

                      Wish I would have had my camera for these two events!

                        Jerry, there are wonderful places upon Mount Washington if that's where you went-- always a big splurge kinda place so as a teenager I never went there on dates! Seems to me one was called the Mount but that sounds too simple and and it has been years since I have been there

                          Yes it was Mt. Washington, and it was spectacular.  Likewise, there were so many neighborhood pubs to dine around the Ren,/Convention Center, I need someone from Pittsburgh to remind me of them.  Just wish, I had my digital camera for these experiences.

                              It was Le Mont, and it was special, but not inexpensive.  I had a small group from France, Poland and Canada, and all of us really enjoyed the table of eight.  Thanks for reminding me.  All of us stayed at the Ren., a great location in Pittsburgh.

                                By the way, one of my favorite restaurants in Paris is Le Voltaire.  This is an authentic French eatery that mainly serves the locals and little English is spoken.  Steaks are great, filet of sole is wonderful, fai gras is out of this world.....  give it a try.  Oh, cost is very high, but worth it.

                                Le Mont was a must see but can't afford place in my growing up years, might even still be? Cousins have had parties at the Monterey Fish place but I've never been,  If I have time in July while at a class reunion (50th with the Skyliners as entertainment) I'll check them out.  Pittsburgh's neighborhood taverns and dives are fantastic BTW

                                  Try to go up there, if nothing else for a refreshment!  The Summertime was really nice, as it was actually cooler than down in the city.  Try to visit the Ren. it is pretty special.  The Skyliners sound like a lot of fun for a 50th.

                                          That's a good choice, especially for people who do not travel a lot.  They also do a nice job with their food.  Should be a great time.

                                              Yes, go with the flow, but enjoy the richness of your experiences at the reunion.  Some times it is startling to see how some people have survived on so little.  I meet people all the time that have never been out of the county, they were born in!  Doesn't mean they are not good people, but they probably can't contribute much to MI.

    The menu at Chez Andre looks divine.  I love that street, too (Rue Marbeuf).  Wouldn't have ever discovered that neighborhood on the southernish side of blvd C-E if not for the driven brother in law, and his focused pursuit of the just right restaurant one evening (he loves to cook and used to be a restauranteur).  I think we dined there at an Italian place, might have been Maitre Pierre, and the food, wine, service and ambiance was lovely.  A pleasant and lucky find.  Also it looks like there is a le Relais de l'entrecote on that street as well.  Thanks for jogging my memory!

      Lori,

       

      Yes, that is the l'entrecote across the street.  It's very good, here a shot of my Medicine Shoppe buddy (Mende), and I "Celebrating a day that ended with a Y"!
