Re: Advice for Traveling in London & Europe
There's good restaurant in the Marais in Paris called Chez Janou. I go everytime I'm in Paris. There's a great chance you'll be waiting any night you want to go, but it's well worth it. It's not very expensive (maybe 15 EUR is the average for a main dish), and the goat cheese appetizer is EXCELLENT.
Edinburgh is beautiful, if pricey. I tried haggis bon bons at this restaurant called Bon Vivant. It's got a tasty fare and in the evenings, there's a fairly lively bar scene. Fisher's is a good minichain (somewhat pricey) of seafood restaurants, too.
I would really suggest hitting up Glasgow, too, depending on how much time you might have in Scotland. It's a 45 min train ride from Edinburgh, and a really fun, small-ish city. The energy is great. There's awesome history, and it's less expensive (and less regal) than Edingburgh.
I'm not the biggest fan of Amsterdam, but if you're into fashion/shopping, let me know, and I'll send you a link to a story I wrote about its shopping scene for an American style magazine.
