I have a gap year due to a career change and would like to make some money during this time, preferably at a part time job waiting tables. I'd like to see how a restaurant works, and I like the chaotic energy of restaurants. [more inside]

Eating in Paris at Christmas

I'm spending the week from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve in Paris. I'm curious what to expect as far as things (restaurants, shops, etc.) being closed. Our general plan is to wander around and look at stuff and be in Paris. I don't mind losing a day to formal sightseeing on Christmas Day itself; in fact I'm kind of looking forward to the quiet. I'm a little worried about food, though, especially because we arrive (via train from Munich) at noon on Christmas Eve. [more inside]

Looking for fun restaurants for kids in Boston

I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants in the Boston metro area that are either kid-centric or have some sort of hook that make them a lot of fun for kids. Note - not restaurants that are just kid friendly but that have something special or different that makes them especially appealing and fun for kids. [more inside]

Recommendations for restaurants near (but not in) Times Square?

I'm heading to NYC this weekend with my two sisters to see Hamilton (yay!). I go into the city semi-regularly to see shows but since one daughter is vegan we tend to eat at vegan places so I haven't really looked for any other restaurants. We're staying at the Marriott Marquis since it's so close to the theatre, but I want to avoid the tourist restaurants in Times Square. Walking distance would be preferable. Two of us are vegetarians so vegetarian friendly also. Any suggestions?

ISO Casual (but good) OC or West LA Restaurant open on Thanksgiving

What it says. Turkey menu not necessary. Know anything going to be open that's not so uber fancy? A delicious hole in the wall place that you just happen to know will be open would be perfect. We like all kinds of food.

Casual Michelin restaurants in Paris?

After a truly horrendous day of travel (missed flights, extra fees to switch tickets, navigating Chatelet- Les Halles at rush hour, then locking ourselves out of the apartment), I'd like to treat my dear, patient, flustered husband to a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant. He's expressed an interest, but unfortunately forgot to bring anything but jeans and (nice enough) collared plaid shirts. A couple of other qualifications inside... [more inside]

Where should we stay in Nashville?

My wife and I are going to Nashville in December for a long needed getaway without children. We'll be there for 2-3 nights.

Lunch or early dinner between Boston and Williamstown MA?

I'm headed from Boston to Williamstown in mid-September for a short getaway. I'll also be 33 weeks pregnant, so anticipate needing frequent food and rest stops. Where can we stop about halfway for lunch or dinner and a good leg-stretch? Google says Athol is halfway, but I don't know restaurants in the area. We also think we should take route 2 and 2A for the most scenic drive -- is that right? Thanks!

Restaurant recommendation in Paris

Difficulty: teenager. I'm visiting my family in France for the first time in a while, and we're going to Paris. Does anyone have recommendations for not-terribly-expensive restaurants a 13 year-old girl will be okay with? When I'm in Paris I rarely visit the same places twice other than L'As du Fallafel in le Marais, which obviously I'll recommend to them. We'll be close to Le Centre Pompidou.

Looking for a good BYOB restaurant in DC (city or very close suburb)?

We're visiting DC over Christmas and going out to dinner with friends. None of us live there. The friends are not adventurous eaters, so we have to stick to Italian/New American type places. We'd like to find a place with great food that would also be considered "nice," but is not too expensive (say a limit of $50/head total - drinks, appetizers, entrees), which where we live generally means BYOB if we want to drink, which we do. We don't want to go out into the burbs. [more inside]
