Not About Food 40

trip to Italy and France

Barbarella | May 17, 2011 12:59 PM

Going to Paris and some towns in Italy in July with my two daughters. I do not want to look like the sloppy Americans that I see in restos in Jersey with those stupid baseball caps on their heads and dressed like rag pickers when eating out. I wonder if shorts are acceptable for lunch when one is touring and doing alot of walking around. Pants or a skirt/dress would be fine for dinner I am sure.. Is it the individual resto that sets the dress policy, or is there just a general rule when dining? Are these rules enforced and one getst turned away? What to wear for lunch and dinner??
