Drinks at Brick and Mortar for grown ladies (long)

I had to google a lion's tail, it sounds intriguing but rather complex, is this a drink that most bartenders know how to make in and around Boston. It's something I'd like to try.

If You Could Clone a Boston Area Restaurant Space, Which Would It Be?

The long gone Icarus, that room just felt perfect. Also, I think Aquitaine in the south end hits it out of the park when it comes to setting and feel of a room. I was at Aquitaine several years ago during a snow storm with almost a foot of snow on the ground and still coming down and the warmth felt in that space was incredible, made for a great setting

Healthy, filling soups/stews for repeat lunches

how about a twist on a Portuguese kale soup, you could leave out the linguica and it would just be chicken stock with a ton of kale in it, maybe add some mushrooms or white beans.

Tempe Dinner Rec's

Looking for some dinner recommendations for a dinner next week, i'll be flying solo and would prefer to eat at the bar of a restaurant. My preference would be seafood since it'll be ash Wednesday. I'm staying at the residence inn downtown/university in Tempe. Also any good bar recommendations. Saw good things about house of tricks and casey moore's oyster house, any thoughts on those? Open to all types of cuisine and price isn't an issue. Thanks!

Solo Dinner San Antonio

Hi,
I'm going to be in San Antonio for work and am looking for a good restaurant to have dinner in by myself. I prefer to eat at the bar when dining alone. I'll be staying at the Marriot Rivercenter and would like to be able to walk to dinner. Price isn't an issue. Ideally I'd like something authentic to San Antonio seeing as I'm from New England. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Venice Beach Area Dinner and Lunch Recs

Staying at the Marriott in Marina Del Rey and figured I'd spend an afternoon checking out the Venice boardwalk area, any recommendations on places to eat for dinner or lunch? Something with some local flavor would be good. Thanks

I'm staying at the Renaissance Hotel and am looking for recommendations for dinner. Something close by would be ideal and something with some local flavor. I'll be dining solo so I'd prefer to eat at the bar of a restaurant. Thanks!

Boston: gifts of food for the non-cook?

Jeni's splendid ice cream would be a great gift. I've done it before, just order online and they send it packed with dry ice to keep it cold. The people I sent it to went nuts about how good it was. www.jenis.com

Dinner near Marriott City Center Minneapolis

Thanks for all the suggestions, I really had wanted to try Brasserie Zentral but with an unexpected late arrival I ended up just grabbing dinner at the hotel. Next time though I'll have to venture out. Thanks again.

Lola sounds interesting, anything you recommend there? Also, will I have an issue getting a seat at the bar around 8:30/9ish on a Wednesday?

Braised Beef Tacos

Looking for recipes or recommendations on braising beef for tacos. Cut of beef? Braising liquid/spices? I've never made this so consider me a newbie. Also, not looking for anything that will be wildly hot, more on the mild and flavorful side.

Thanks

Second Date - tasty but not too pricey

I'd recommend Silvertone in downtown crossing then walk to the north end or seaport for drinks. Silvertone is reasonably priced and the food is great and the place has a cool vibe.

Where was the first date for reference?

Any recommendations for foil pack dinners for the grill?

My mom always made these in the summer. In the foil packet she'd place a chicken breast, carrots and potatoes (both cut into long wedges) and canned cream of mushroom soup then would put them on the grill. They were delicious.

Swordfish recipes

I'm fortunate to live in an area with a good fishing fleet that goes after a lot of swordfish, so needless to say it's fairly cheap and we eat it a lot. Does anyone have any good recipes for either swordfish steaks or kabobs. We mostly just cover it in mayo and grill it. Any and all suggestions on how to change things up are welcome. Thanks.
