  1. I am looking for a good seafood restaurant in Boston and Cambridge with healthy options (I am not interested in deep fried seafood). I had steamed clams at Tony's in Wollestan, and felt like I was eating a sandbox, and so if you could advise on a different track, I would appreciate it. Also, please let me know your thoughts on the following list: Select Oyster bar Mooncusser Fish House Summer Shack Legal Seafoods Legal Oysteria Legal Harborside Courthouse Seafood Waypoint The Hourly Oysterhouse Harvest Abe and Louie's Alive and Kicking Lobsters The Red House Ostra Shaking Crab McComick and Schmicks, Faneuil Hall Marketplace
  2. I will be visiting Brum later this month, and was interested in any updates on Bati/Indian. Please let me know of any recent developments. Thank you.
  3. Thank you very much, This is very helpful. Cheers!
  4. This is most helpful, Thank you. I will post in the UK cooking forum for more information regarding preparation classes for traditional British tea and Masala Chai. Cheers!
  5. I will be traveling from New York City to London from 14 February through 27 February, and am interested in instruction on how to make a proper cuppa. I am particularly interested in traditional British tea preparation, as well as chai masala. I am also interested in where I might find a excellent chai masala in London, as where to go for a traditional afternoon tea. Any advise on reservations, etc. would be appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Please recommend a good lunch place. I am staying at Hotel Mikazuki, near Katsuura station. My budget is 10.000 yen for three people; regional cuisine is preferred. Thank you.
  7. My wife will drive from the Twin Cities to Vermillion, South Dakota and will stay there overnight on 11/28. Any recommendations? AAA recommends the Red Steakhouse.
  8. Are there any recommendations for a restaurant with romantic ambiance from the selection of Summer Restaurant Week 2013: http://www.nycgo.com/restaurantweek# My wife is a librarian (very soft spoken), and so really noisy, hysterical places with great food are out of the question.

  9. I will be in Matsumoto, Nagano prefecture between March 27-March 31. What are the regional specialties? What restaurants should I go to for dinner? Should I make a reservation in advance, or do they take walk-in diners? My budget is $50-$75 for dinner, and I will be dinning alone, as I am attending a convention there. I will be staying at the Southern Cross hotel. Also, any recommendations markets or other culinary attractions of the region are of interest Please advise. All recommendations are appreciated. Thank you very much. Mascarpone.
  10. I am looking for Muscat de Beaumes de Venise wine. Can anyone recommend a local wine company/store where a selection of Rhone area wines would include this? I tried the Moore Bros site, and could not find it. Thanks.
  11. I received a $100 gift card for Epicerie Boulud (NYC). Evidently the card can be used at any of the Boulud restaurants in NYC, and last year my wife and I went to Daniel for our fifth Wedding Anniversary. Which Boulud restaurant this year? Should I return to Daniel again, or is there another Boulud restaurant that is has the right romantic vibe?
  12. Hmmm. I guess I was just looking in all the wrong places. Will try. Thanks.
  13. Is it possible to buy fresh habanero chilis in NYC? I called Tehuitzingo and Zaragosa, and they don't have them.
  14. We went to Chez Jude My link and the Angry Trout My link for dinner two nights. On both evenings we chose the trout. Both were excellent. In particular, the trout was incredibly fresh and flavorful, and the accompaniments, as well as summer Salad at Chez Jude were outstanding. The desserts (Tiramisu Cake and Rhubarb tart)were great. Very nice service as well. I highly recommend Chez Jude for a white table cloth dinning experience on the Superior shore. We also enjoyed Java Moose Coffee [218 W Highway 61 Grand Marais, MN 55604] and Wold's Best doughnuts My link
  15. Today we went to Jazmine Deli (2532 Nicollet Avenue, Mpls) for a solid meal of Vietnamese Banh Minh (roast chicken and pork), Iced coffee, spring rolls. The quality of the roast meat and freshness of cilantro, pickles were good; however, I missed the the spicyness and the quantity of pickles and cilatro, as well as the freshness of the bread of Saigon Bakery. This area, dubbed 'Eat Street,' has several ethnic prospects that we may enjoy in the next week. We just arrived in Tofte this evening, and may try Naniboujou Lodge or Chez Jude in Grand Marais in the next few days. Thanks again for the excellent recommendations(I did have the opportunity to go to Emily's several years ago, and it was great).
  16. My wife and I are going to be visiting the Twin Cities as well as Tofte, MN for the July 4th weekend. We are interested in good solid ethnic food and are not particularly interested in fancy/romantic decor, or wine lists. We both love ethnic restaurants (Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American, Eastern European, African, Carribean, etc.)and markets, and we are very interested restaurants or other food stores/markets/shops that feature local foods. Our budget is between $40-70 a meal.
  17. Thank you for the very informative posts. I am interested in American, two digits (is this practical)?
  18. Please rec. Japanese restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens for excellent Wagu/Kobe beef.
  19. Any recommendations on a $15 per person Sunday Brunch spot in Midtown that is compatible for children before going to the Zoo? Continental Cuisine preferred.
  20. I will be going to Isla Mujeres for New Years. I will see if there is anything to add. Also, if anyone has any other leads, would appreciate . . .
  21. We went to Oyster Creek Inn at Leeds Point. We both ordered the specials, and everything was fried (including the lobster tail), which made the meal quite heavy. My favorite thing on the menu was the clam stew; otherwise the particular meals that we had were somewhat disappointing.
  22. I looked at the website for Gertrude's, and there are no prices listed. Does anyone know this info?
