Ordering in Paris

kittybart | Aug 17, 2009 11:00 AM

Hello all,

I will be traveling with my husband soon in Paris. We only know a few introductory phrases to get us by in French so I am concerned about ordering Paris if the waiter/waitress does not speak English.

I can comprehend the written word better than hearing it, so I'm confident when looking at a menu I can figure out the main dish and ingredients but it seems to me to be very rude to point to a menu item.

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
