How to Find Where the Locals Eat

FYI: The bellman above, working at the Pullman Eiffel Tower, helped us in Paris.

    Thus is a great idea. We did it in Paris years ago and found a wonderful Mexican restaurant on a street would have never walked down. The margaritas were interesting. ?

    Many times. All over the world. Some of the best food in Ireland is in the little back street pubs. In Shanghai, a doorman pointed to a little shop, (it translated to) Yummy House, some of the best hot pots ever.

    Actually, I’ve asked concierges as well as front desk staff, bellmen and valets. The difference is I ask the question; “Where do you eat?” and I’ve rarely had a bad tip.
