    Dear friends,

    Since I'm going back (finally) to Europe for the first time in 12 years, I wanted to know if anyone has recommendations for food places and I prefer local and not the touristy ones (no fancy restaurants please, just good food places without having to break to the bank). These are for the following cities:

    1. Paris
    2. Lourdes
    3. Barcelona
    4. Nice
    5. Monte Carlo (Ok, well maybe here a fine restaurant is acceptable)
    6. Rome
    7. Verona
    8. Venice

    Any recommendations and/or insights and suggestions are most appreciated!

    In Paris, I highly recommend Thoumieux (79 Rue St. Dominique). It's a little neighborhood bistro and not very touristy (although they will produce an English menu upon request... but it doesn't always have everything being offered on the French menu). Great standard fare, reasonable prices, and a nice stroll in the evening. A fellow frequent traveler introduced me to the place years ago and I've visited many times since.
