Easter Sunday Brunch in Williamsburg

Can I get a recommendation for 4 adults on Easter Sunday for Brunch? We are visiting our daughter and have reservations at Shalom Japan Friday night and Juliette on Saturday night.

Looking for non-chain eats in Chesterfield/St. Charles Co. MO

New in Cottleville which is in St Charles Co is Stone Soup Cottage. Awesome experience from young husband/chef wife team. They offer 4 or 6 course set menus that you can see on their web site to know if it appeals to you.
You will feel like you are on vacation, it is so delightful.

STL -- need prepared food platters for private party

This is just what you are looking for.

Columbia Mo. Caterer

I'm looking for a caterer in Columbia to provide a high carb pasta dinner for a bike team of about 180 ppl the weekend of the MS150 ride in September. Location is a park. Used a restaurant last year and it wasn't so good. As someone in the industry, I prefer a caterer used to feeding large numbers all at once. Any ideas?

Columbia graduation dinner

We will have a group of 14 on May 16th and I have procrastinated getting reservations after our daughter's graduation. I love Sycamore, but I'm worried it will be too loud for the Grandmas to be able to hear conversation. Any other suggestions of restaurants that do a good job with large groups and have the type of menus that would compare to Sycamore?

STL: Beer *and* WiFi?

Yes, Nadoz Cafe does have a liquor license for beer and wine at both locations with free Wi fi

French Lick Indiana

We will be going there in July. Any recommendations for restaurants at the resort or near by?

St. Louis recommendations

Vin de Set has a wonderful outdoor rooftop patio. I'm not a fan of their food, but the experience outways that. However, we've been having some pretty hot humid weather, so I wouldn't go if you can't tolerate that. Atlas is very good. Locals love Sidney St., but I haven't been in a long time. Niche is very intimate, so if your looking for more of a lively atmosphere, I'd choose Balabans. There is also a new dessert option in the Central West End you could go to after Balabans, Bissinger's Chocolate Experience. Haven't been yet, but sounds like it's worth a try. For breakfast or Sunday Brunch try Nadoz in Midtown.

Euro style bakery/cafe

We are coming to NYC to research bakery/cafes. We're opening a second location of our cafe,, and want to see some examples of the latest best in design and
upscale bakery/cafe products. We are especially interested in cafes that beautifully display their products, with a wow factor. And, we'd like to sample the best pasties/desserts/food items similar to crepes, paninis, sandwiches on artisan breads. Your suggestions are appreciated.
