Default NYC Favorites

Lidia Bastianich, one of my favorite chefs, has two great places (her son owns a couple with Mario Batali).

Theatre location but if you go after the theatre crowd, easier to get reservations and well worth it.
Becco.
http://www.becco-nyc.com/

Good rustic, true Italian food.

Uptown
Felidia
http://www.felidia-nyc.com/

Much more a high dining experience with very cultural meats. Fantastic.

GO!!!!

Another one of my faves in Portland is: Screen Door

I have only been here for breakfast (can you tell we like breakfast?)

It is best to arrive about half hour before opening because otherwise the wait is 1-2 hours – June-y would not enjoy this.

They are famous for the fried chicken & waffle: Spicy buttermilk battered fried chicken over a sweet potato waffle. It is a bit too much for my stomach, but it is very popular and definitely enough for 3 meals.

I like to order the traditional benedict or one of the scrambles. Often I actually order one of the specials, which often has some different ingredients like kale, chard, sautee'd spinach, roasted red peppers, fennel, chanterelles, etc.

They have delicious biscuits and gravy. There are several places in town for great B&G...this is in the top 5.



Also the grits are soooooo good.

And of all things, they have a really wonderful organic oatmeal with butter and brown sugar and fresh fruit of your choice. It is a huge bowl, enough for leftovers.



Everything is fresh! The coffee is good and strong. In fact they have s self-serve coffee area where you can make your own while you are waiting for your table.

The kitchen is always bustling…it is great to watch them prepare the food.

They play great music, like class jazz or big band...

Default Tampa, Fl.

This is an awesome Mexican restaurant that has reasonable prices, friendly staff and fantastic food!

Endless supply of nachos and the best salsa to go with them.

You can order a combo and split it b/w two people: Consuelo's Favorite $ 11.50
1st part - one tostada topped with chile con queso and one tostada with beans, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.
2nd part- one Enchilada Manuel and one crispy beef taco.

Friendly wait staff, a nice patio (but on a road with no view...they make it nice, though), and reasonable prices. You can't go wrong for some decent Mexican food here if you are in the Tampa area!

If you are ever in Chicago you have to eat at Spring.http://www.springrestaurant.net/menu.html The food and atmosphere are amazing. The pacific sea bass served with ricotta agnolottie/ grilled chicory/ parsley and Pernod cream is my favorite dish.

Really excellent Thai in NYC, East Village: Holy Basil

Sip Sak is some great Turkish food in NYC.

Way overpriced, and horrid service, but my best friend and I used to go here in NYC which is spectacular, because the view overlooks central park at Columbus Circle. You can make it somewhat affordable by sharing appetizers. We go for the Martinis there. Here is an image of the bar, as the lounge is kinda swank and impressive, and then the rest of it is pretty much solid window for looking out onto the park: Stone Rose Lounge.

~~~
And I know this isn't exactly a restaurant, but the Skeff Bar in Galway, Ireland is one of my favorite spots. This bar is incredible (it's actually like three or four) and there is a small restaurant that accompanies it, I believe, but I've never eaten there. Here. Best Guinness ever!

Another place I like to go is >Chez Machin<

I found this little gem when I first moved to Portland just randomly wandering around in one of the neat neighborhoods we have, Hawthorne.

The restaurant is quaint and comfy. They decorate in the traditional "French" way...play french music, etc.

What I love about this place is the staff are really kind and always seem really happily mellow. They have great suggestions, are very patient with my weird food ordering ways...And the food is just good. Always good. It never wavers.

They have the best french onion soup I have ever had...so tasty.

They have lots of crepes (which are VERY popular here) but I typically order:
Croque Monsieur-Grilled Emmentaller swiss cheese, Black Forest ham and dijon mustard sandwich topped with melted Emmentaller swiss cheese
and/or
Salade Lyonnaise-Mixed greens tossed in homemade Dijon vinaigrette with bacon, diced tomatoes, homemade croutons and topped with a poached egg.

Sometimes I get the special - Chicken Cordon Bleu or Quiche.

If we are feeling especially decadent, we might get this appetizer: Brie en Croute-Brie cheese baked in savory pastry. Served with roasted garlic and sliced apples, sliced baguette, and local berry compote.

or a crepe for dessert (rarely for me since I don't eat much refind sugar) but if I do, it is often this: La Compote-Cooked apples and cinnamon with caramel sauce.

The prices are VERY reasonable as well. 2 for dinner is usually around $25 depending on what we order.

For casual dining in San Diego one of my faves for Mexican food is El Zarape. They don't have a website but they have some awesome reviews on YELP.

They make the best mahi mahi fish tacos and great mole. I like the chicken mole burrito. Their homemade chips are great and they have a nice salsa bar. They have a huge menu written on the wall when you first walk in. They have tons of vegetarian choices too, including soy enchiladas which are really good. All the seafood choices can't be beat, lobster burritos, scallop tacos as well. It's in a cool part of town with lots of good people watching and a fun place to just take a little walk after you chow down.

Once, I was in Charleston, SC (I know, I left the north! Wow!), I had an amazing dining experience here and I have subsequently recommended it to some friends who traveled there. It's quite southern (when in Rome, right?), but, gourmet. Rather good. If you are there, or will go there, try this place. You will not be disappointed.

The salad with the apple-ginger vinaigrette sounded interesting. Okay, the dressing sounds interesting. I think I'll experiment and see what I can come up with.

Now this is a thread I could spend all day in.

Chicago Favs:

Cafe Ba Ba Reeba. Part of the Melman Brother's Lettuce Entertain You empire, but oh so good. Spanish Tapas with great social ambiance and almost universally great wait staff. They do know how to train 'em. Bacon wrapped dates, stuffed mushrooms, wonderful sangria... sigh. In a word? Festive.

North Pond To say this is a hidden gem is an understatement on two fronts. Most Chicagoans don't even know this exists and those that do still would have a hard time finding it. There is, to my palate, no finer dining experience in Chicago. You might pay more, but you can't get better. They have a great wine list and make lovely cocktails as well as serving up fresh, locally sourced organic food. Therefore their menu changes frequently. Nummy.

There are plenty of great cheap eats as well.

Hot Dogs: SuperDawg on Touhy. You may disagree about the "bestness" of the dog, but you cannot deny that they have a great experience. Right down to the packaging.

Gyro: Andie's. Andie's used to be a hole in the wall drop in joint when I was growing up in the neighborhood. I didn't go for years after I moved out of the area and then finally went for brunch one Sunday. Can't recommend the brunch, but they still have good gyros.

Pizza: Everyone says Duo's, Malnati's or Girodano's. Bullocks. Pequod's is the place for pie. Just try it.

Sweet Treats: For years I would have said Margie's. Hands down. Margie's is an institution and I think it's a shame that I can no longer recommend them, but after being refused service on my birthday ("we don't serve your kind!!") I just can't support them. Instead I say "Cupcakes" on Briar in boytown.

Will be back for tips on other places I've lived and visited.

That was the first time I'd been to Cafe Ba Ba Reeba, or anyplace like it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, too, and the food there was absolutely wonderful.

I didn't know I'd like that kind of food as much as I do!!

When you guys come back....and I know you will, one of these days, I will take you to eat Dim Sum at the Orchid Garden....and we will also take in the all-you-can-eat sushi and tempura bar at Makeno's.

Okay, don't stop. Just give me directions.

Legal Seafood may be a chain and it may not be the best seafood in the world, but I have never had a bad meal at a stand alone Legal outlet. The Logan airport location just delivered the first bad meal I'd ever had at Legal so I can no longer claim "never" wholly, but well qualified I still recommend it.

Abe & Louie's is one of those "old boy" type places that you don't think exist any more. If you're a regular they know you and your palate extremely well. They know the table you prefer and the cocktail that you'll want waiting. If not, you may well want to become a regular.

East Side Bar & Grille in Cambridge is my go to place for a good cocktail or a well poured beer and a low key atmosphere. Get a baked quahog and a salad with your Harpoon IPA and you're golden.

Eastside is the place I jones for when I'm away. They have a good caesar salad and serve it with anchovy (as the food gods intended!). They no longer plate my favorite fish dish, but always have a nice selection of fresh seafood. Try the sweet potato chips with artichoke and crab dip. I have no idea why they don't put it on the regular menu because it's been on the specials list every time I've been there over the last three years.

Carmelina's in Hadley is a new fav for me. Was just there this month. It's easy to say that it's charming, but what you wouldn't realize from the exterior is that you'll get some of the best service inside this unassuming space. Paired with great ambiance and live music and you start to understand why it's always packed.

Esselon, also in Hadley, is one og my favorite places to grab breakfast or brunch. They have a lovely gardenside patio to enjoy while injesting amazing carb laden breakfast goodness. If I liked coffee I have no doubt I'd love theirs. It smells great!

Green Street Cafe, in the shadow of Smith college, serves a small but very fresh menu in a converted storefront space that can feel a little odd, but none-the-less quite welcoming. The service tends to be a little on the flighty side, but the food more or less makes up for it.

Cape Cod
http://www.yelp.com/biz/edwige-provincetown in Provincetown is ideal for a romantic dinner with cocktails, but be forewarned, it's small, bustling and can be quite hot when the weather heats up. They win points for great cocktail concoctions.
