Restaurants for picky eaters...

Or should I say eater...my husband. ;) We would love to have one really nice dinner while we are in Paris. All of the American restaurants I have researched are burger and sandwich places. We are looking for something a little bit more upscale...steak, pasta, etc. Any suggestions? Thank you!

The only time I gagged on food was in Venice.

I should have listened to the waitress as she asked me several times --in both English and French--- if I was sure, really really really sure, I wanted that dish...

it looked nice: white pasta on one side and black "sauce" on the other side of the plate (I have lots of black and white clothes)...The guy at the table next to us said something like: "oh boy! you wouldn't pay me enough money to eat THAT!"

I did my best to eat some then the waitress joked she had rather remove the plate at once than call for an ambulance... The black "sauce" was mostly-- or perhaps only-- squid ink.... real ink might have tasted better.

That's all well and good to say don't accommodate your kid and he'll eat when he's hungry. When my average height kid was down to less than the 5th percentile in weight, my pediatrician said to just feed him what he'd eat.

But the unsolicited parenting advice is always so appreciated.

Ah, yes, squid ink can be a challenge for some people. You can even buy tinned octopus in ink in supermarkets. Yum.

Let my kids go hungry???

I showed my picky-eating kids (who have a picky-eater mom) this thread and they said "wow mom you are a much nicer mom than them!" Such good kids -- I think we are all going out for ice cream now...

There you go, K. Just what you need to cool down.
