Jeanty's, Antwerp, Belgium

This restaurant did not get very high marks on the review sites. I had the osso bucco. It was very nicely done. The mussel bucket looked plentiful. The asparagus in season appeared delightful. I think where this restaurant fails is service. We waited a long long time for the food and servers were inattentive to our needs. It was also a bit pricey. I enjoyed the food.

Rustique Restaurant York, England

A very nice place to have dinner in York is Rustique. This French cuisine restaurant has both a fixed menu for a very reasonable price as well as an ala carte menu. The food was delicious but make sure you make reservations as this place is busy. The three course set menu was just perfect food without pretension.

Betty's, York, England

A great way to spend a late afternoon in York is by having high tea at Betty's. A silver tray of sandwiches, scones with butter and jam and topped with an array of pastry confections will definitely brighten even the rainiest afternoon. The tea was also amazing. Service was fast and friendly. The full menu had a wonderful array of sandwiches if you want something other than high tea. Next time I will try some of those.
