Located in the heart of the Marais one can usually locate L’as Du Fallafel by the line in front.  You maybe taken back at first by the person collecting for your Fallafel in advance while you are in line but i can assure that this is standard procedure.  It’s worth the wait in line for a take away or for a table inside. This is the best Fallef you will have even by Middle eastern standards.  This is certainly the best 5 Euro lunch you can have in Paris…I highly recommend it, I have never been disappointed!

It’s been a while since I had lunch at la Foutaine de Mars. This is a classic French Bistro with very solid food. The quality of the food is very good and preparation professional.  The portion size is large probably geared towards the American tourist crowd.  I had an appetizer pastry stuffed with goat cheese it was excellent and large enough for 4 people. The Scallop entry also was very good, cooked to perfection and large. I certainly would recommend it anyone that likes a lot of good food.

RISTORANTE IL LATINI

While staying in the lovely countryside of Tuscany, Lori decided to have me, drive us to Florence to visit a restaurant recommend by her doctor that is known to love his food.  I was reluctant to drive in Florence because this usually involves driving down one way streets the wrong direction , driving in traffic restricted areas and a host of other moving violations.  This time was no exception so after the “drive” we arrived in Florence, parked the car and found IL Latini.

IL Latini is known for their Florentine Steaks which can be some of the best beef found in the world.  Two of the best steaks we have eaten have been Florentine however sadly to say this was not going to be one of those heavenly days. The restaurant is very casual, crowded with many tourists and the servers really did a great job of working the crowd.  We ordered the Steak , Tuscan beans and salad.   The kindest comments I have was that the food was OK or perhaps they had an off day.
