Searching for Good Grub

Sometimes when you travel, or even when you're just not exactly on your home turf, it's nice to be spontaneous and find a meal on the fly. What a thrill when you find some place truly special. On the other hand, what a drag when you spend money and it's just so-so or worse yet, just plain bad.

What's the best way to find quality in Paris when you are out and about without a specific address in mind? Check out the stickers on the door or in the window. This one's a winner in apparently everyone's book. And I thought the bread was pretty darn good myself.

But how French can it be if they don't allow dogs?

For decent food, the sticker-test seems appropriate. But if you're going for better-than-decent, a lack of stickers could mean that a restaurant is so good, it doesn't need to advertise with stickers in the window . . . then again, it could also just mean that it's terrible.

The solution? Only go to restaurants that come recommended by people whose judgement you trust?
