    Sleep in Père Lachaise. One-stop shop for ghosts of greatness.

    They'll even give you a map so you can choose your ghost. ;)

    Will be in Paris from Feb 17-27. Would love to meet up with some SZ comrades while I'm in the city. This is my first visit, and meals/pastries are always better when shared with good company.

    I'm at loss for words. Today is a really sad day for France and Freedom of Speech.

    actually it will probably wake millions of people up to the importance of protecting free speech. i'm more worried about how this will fuel right-wing neofascist parties and general islamophobia in europe.

    It doesn't make it any less sad... And of course, Le Pen won 10% in a matter of hours. And she isn't any less dangerous for freedom of speech.

    'Tis the season. File your new restaurant discoveries here.

    Any good restaurants near Palais de Tokyo? There will be a nice midday break between Rick and Boris.

    Not sure what you mean by Brunch. Clown Bar is open early and Calmat opens at 12:00 for lunch.

    Best place for Japanese food: Metro Pyramid or around Opera.
    Nice place for authentic chinese food: 13eme place de clichy

    Chez Gladine in the 13eme is really good too. Offering french food for reasonable prices. At port clignacourt you have La Recyclerie a nice cozy place which is more urban modern and down to earth.

    still looking for some really nice restos in the 20eme, any suggestions?

    Going to be in Paris next week for two nights. I'd be quite interested in any special exhibitions going on at the moment, given that Paris is quite near for me, so I can do the permanent stuff later.

    So far, I'm planning to go to the Grand Palais for the Jean-Paul Gaultier and Velazquez exhibits and the Musée Quai Branly. Any other recommendations?

    Food wise, planning to try Le Servan and Martin for lunch, and Semilla and Au Passage for dinner. Comments on both dinner options appreciated, particularly Au Passage, since most of what I've read on it dates back to James Henry's time there.

    Au Passage - overhyped, overpriced, mediocre food and the worst food poisoning of my life. Enjoy!

    Well, I think I may try something else then...

    Has anyone tried Yard near Lachaise? Or Amarante in the 12ème?
