Restaurant Recommendations - Page 87

Try to eat at Feast before it closes, but that's one of the few on the list I've tried. If you're a dimsum fan, I'd suggest looking into Fung's Kitchen.

For you Houstonians, what do you think about the places on the following list. I have been to a few but I wasn't impressed.

Thanks.

I like Oxheart and Uchi. Lots of good Vietnemese food as well.Also...breakfast klub is good for chicken and waffles.

In the DC suburbs:

 

Girasole in The Plains, VA.  Really great pasta dishes at reasonable prices and a decent wine list...  Robert Duvall lives nearby and eats there often.  Try it when the weather permits outside dining.  Also, arriving during daylight is best.  It reminds me a little of Florence, Italy.  It's worth the drive, which is very nice if you avoid I66 and take the side roads.

 

Cheers,

Impolyt--have you been/know anyone that's been here? I ran across a few things that, in translation at least, seemed to think that they didn't take first time customers, but the website seems to suggest otherwise. I suppose the worst they could tell a concierge is no. Stuff looks great, and the tabelog ratings are extremely high, but just trying to see if I can find any more "real" opinons.

Seattle, WA

Our favorite Italian place in Seattle was Cascina Spinasse

For brunch I suggest The Boat Street Cafe

For a special occasion make reservations at Canlis

I may have some more thoughts up my sleeve if you want to ask!

Finally made it to Buttermilk Channel (Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY).

The place was popularized by its take on Fried Chicken and Waffles. The chicken was juicy and tasty though a bit cumbersome to eat. My friend had the pasta, which was very good. The mussel appetizer was perhaps the highlight of the night.

I thought that place was meh.

Just did Perbacco about a week or so ago. It has a good Michelin review and I liked it. Very good.

Had a wonderful meal at L'Espalier in Boston. I did the Chef's tasting menu and they have a scrumptious mix of local fare and French haute cuisine. You can tell they pay a lot of attention to the source of their ingredients. They take cheese very seriously and have an excellent cheese plate and in-house Fromager. Wine list is extensive, as one might expect.

I also did O Ya and had the grand tasting experience. I went a little overboard there and the check came out to $400 for one person, and I left hungry. I never thought I'd be one of "those guys" but while I loved the fusion and inspiration behind the sushi, I craved a more traditional style.

I'm thinking about giving Oishii a try as I'm stuck here another night, but I'm a little turned off by some reviews and the fact that they have glowing plates and those types of gimmicks. I may just do L'Espalier again but don't want to get fat.

In New York or in San Francisco?

San Francisco.

One of the other things that made my visit fun was seeing other hats at the coat check - I think this marks only the second time I've seen patrons with dress hats at a SanFo restaurant..

I ate at one of the red sauce places in Little Italy SF last night, 2nd time there. A fair few hats there but then it's a lot of older Italians and families.

THe one in NY is unrelated. It's not a bad restaurant, but Il Posto Accanto across the street is better, IMO.
