need inspiration –
and you have to eat!
You find yourself standing outside your hotel, a stranger in a strange land, wondering what restaurant has your name on it. You could look in a guidebook, tho even new it’s no longer current. You can ask the concierge — who likely has a cousin with a restaurant plus a rug for sale. You can ask a local who looks like someone you might know if you lived here. You can take a wild guess and walk into the nearest decent looking place, but you’ve been wrong before. Or you can come prepared with the name of the very best untapped local resource from planet.eatquestnyc!
I’m here to guide you on your merry way to great food finds — a meal, a drink, or a shop so you can take home a bit of the local magic. It’s the local haunts, the little things you’ll soon crave that I will find for you to make you feel at home away from home.
All current, no depending on outdated guide books or a hotel concierge with a hidden agenda. The suggestions will be fun, delectable and definitely somewhere you want to be.

Where can I enjoy Paris on my
Fun Parisian Wine Bar Just For Me
comfortable bohemian chic
Why hide away in your hotel room with a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and cheese when you can be alone together with your kind of crowd at this cozy little wine bistro? When the wet chill of Paris has wrapped itself around your soul, FPWBJFM is one of the most welcoming and satisfying places to be — whether you want a bit of St. Marcellin made by a little old lady in Lyon to warm you right up or some Crotin de Chevre chaud on spectacular chewy and crunchy bread. Maybe the quintessential Duck Terrine. I call it inventive traditional cooking — with a Gallic shrug. Wonderful murals, rustic food, a great wine list, moderate prices, and an always bohemian lively atmosphere sets you squarely in the center of the Paris of old and the Paris of now.

What Are People Really Eating Here?
Locals mixed with tourists because it’s that fun and that good
If you’re looking for colonial chic serving up a chicken stew chock full of fungus, dried buffalo skin, lemongrass, and local greens in a lovely rich stock, plus beverages (including beers) for under ten US dollars - c’mon down to WAPREH and the magical main street of Luang Prabang. You can also partake in purple rice, lightly battered pork stuffed with bamboo shoots, and a fermented fish stew with lime and lemongrass that was downright righteous.
A touristed retreat and for good reason. Reasonable prices, very tasty traditional dishes enjoyed on a great balcony with a view of golden spires and saffron robes… you’ll definitely know you’re not in Kansas anymore.
