Novell has a number of bloggers who communicate with the outside world about their experiences with Novell products and services. They also write about issues outside of Novell such as stuff they like to do. One good example is Bruggen by Erik Van Bruggen who lives in Antwerp and provides great visuals, along with descriptions of his biking in Europe. Another is “I blog, you blog, we all blog !” - a blog by Erik Dasque. I especially liked Erik’s link to “When you go to Paris...” from Frenchguys.com which I lifted and pasted below as a follow-on to my earlier post on Paris restaurants.
Chez Izoi, 1 rue de l'ecole polytechnique (01 43 25 95 77) - Small, super romantic and fun. Not a great restaurant but oh, so Parisian.
Le Gamin de Paris, 49 rue Vieille du temple (franco moroccan, get the honey duck)
Refuge des Fondues is not to be missed. Go with a group of friends or go just the 2 of you, make reservations (17 r Trois Frères, 01 42 55 22 65). Order the cheese fondue, drink wine out of baby bottles. Be prepared to be drunk, friendly and hot. You'll have the best time.
Willy's Wine Bar 13 r Petits Champs, Best wine bar in Paris
Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole 24 r Chanoinesse, very close to notre dame. My all time favorite. If you're hungry : degustation d'yvette. Try the snails and go down the stairs to visit the wine cave.
for brunch : le Pain Quotidien (2r Petits Carreaux or 18 place Marché St Honoré) is really good.
But you can't miss Le loir dans la théeire (3 rue des Rosiers in the Marais) for Brunch or Lunch.
Trendy places: Buddy Bar (near the american embassy, metro Concorde, also a good dinner), Bar Fly (Champs elysees), Opus Café
