Local Detroit Recommendations

We're staying at the Court Yard Marriot on East Jefferson and yes, we will have a car. I'm looking for something where the locals enjoy. Not expensive, but good, classic Detroit grub! (LOL) Thanks.

Catering/Take Out Recommendations near Mass General Hospital...

Any suggestions or recommendations for good catering/take out restaurants or delis near Mass General Hospital? Friends from New York have taken an apartment in the area for an extended period to be near their 2 year old daughter who is being treated with chemotherapy. We'd like to call in and pre-order food and meals for them during this difficult time. Thank you.

City Limits Diner, White Plains

Just got home from having brunch @ The City Limits Diner in White Plains. Don't waste your time and money. It's more hype than substance. I was extremely disappointed. The menu was overpriced, portions were small and the food was mediocre at best. In my opinion it was nothing more than a "yuppie place to hang out" - It is not a true diner.

In mid-January 2009, I'll be flying into Ft. Lauderdale and renting a car to drive through the Keys.

Any recommendations on good, local places to catch a bite to eat and/or have a fun time? I'm planning on making this a relaxing and enjoyable trip.

On my way through Miami, is it worth a trip to Little Havana to have a meal at Versailles?

Thanks in advance.

L&B Spumoni Gardens

I've eaten at this landmark in Gravesend, Brooklyn for most of my life. Recently, friends told me that things have changed, and it's not the same solid Italian-American food and service which we all remember.

Sad to say, I went there for dinner last night and was TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED. Service was horrible, food took forever to arrive and portions wer extremely skimpy. Some dishese never arrived. The waiter was no where to been seen until he brought the check. Needless to say I left him a very "skimpy" tip.

When we left the restaurant, I said something to the hostess/manager. She told me that others were complaining all night and she didn't understand, because it was not very busy for a Saturday night.

I don't know what's going on, but they're killing a tradition and a once great family business.

I hope they turns things around soon before it's too late.

Any recommendations on a casual Northern Westchester Restaurant near the Taconic Parkway? I'm meeting a friend for dinner and we're trying to find a good place equi-distant from each of our homes. Italian, Mexican, Continental, BBQ, etc is just fine. Thanks.


Has anyone been to the Lincoln Lounge lately? I was a loyal, regular customer, go there to eat every couple of months. The food was good, the prices were reasonable, and the atmosphere was like walking into a time warp....
I went with a friend last night, and noticed that they had a new menu, WITH PARK AVENUE NYC PRICES. We asked the waitress about it, because we thought maybe it was family style dishes. She laughed at us, and said that since "Cheese" costs went up, so did their prices. For example, $17.00 for an appetizer of fried calamari isn't related to cheese costs in my world. Very disappointed. They've been around for ages, so I'm not sure what this is all about. This is probably my last meal there. If anyone is familiar with the place, please let me know what your recent experience has been like. Thanks.

Thank you All,
I think we're going to try Zitoune in Mamaroneck. It sounds great. Happy New Year.

Recommendations in Westchester County Area

I'm in Mount Vernon, so anywhere in Southern Westchester would be great. Thanks.

Recommendations in Westchester County Area

Any recommendations for a comfortable, casual and reasonably priced restaurant in the Westchester County Area for a Sunday night dinner ??? Something different would be a nice change from the usual Italian/Chinese/Mexican... Thanks.


Hello Dinner Belle,

Thank you for the suggestions. Do you work at the Beachcomber?


I'll be in Coastal Georgia (Brunswick area) in the later part of the summer. Any recommendations for good, local, and reasonable eating establishments - In addition to fun bars and clubs that have a regional flavor. I'm willing to travel an hour in each direction. Thank you.
