need resataurant near BWI/I-95

Our go to spot near the airport is the LIttle Spice Thai Restaurant. Every dish we have tried has been wonderful. The service is always friendly and efficient. We go there for casual dinners or to meet friends who have flown into BWI.

In search of updated College Park dining

We're parents of a new University of Maryland freshman, and will be visiting College Park frequently now. A check of the Board reveals a bit of age on most College Park suggestions. Can someone update us on the current dining scene, beyond the college student junk, in the area? We love to discover small gems that don't look like much from the outside (seems to be potential for them in this area).

What Happened to Empire City Bagels?

Just returned to New York and wanted my annual fix of Empire City Bagels. The entire city block is gone! Does anybody know if they have relocated? If not, I'll need suggestions for a substitute to soothe me in this time of mourning...

Need help with pre-theatre Chelsea/Village

We're going to a show on W. 16th Street Saturday night, and are looking for an efficient pre-theatre spot, with or without a pre fixe. Moderate pricing is the order of the day. Leaning toward Italian, but we have wide tastes, so anything goes. Thanks!

Dinner in Coral Gables/Coconut Grove

We're taking our freshman University of Miami student out to dinner for his 18th birthday, along with his roommates. Any suggestions in the Coral Gables/Coconut Grove area? We're looking for something better than the chain stuff he'll probably eat for the next four years (lord, we've tried to educate his palate!), but not something too intimidating for a couple of 18 year olds.

I know that Le Rivage on the D.C. waterfront closed awhile back when they lost their lease. There were rumors of a planned relocation. Does anyone know if it has resurfaced in a new form?
