Bachelor Party Breakfast at 9 AM with alcohol

I think I may pick MarketBar or Original Joe's for breakfast and Zero, Zero for dinner.

The yelp reviews for Marketbar aren't that great..just yelpers?

Bachelor Party Breakfast at 9 AM with alcohol

There will be 10 people in the party. Any other ideas for dinner when we return?

New(ish) Restaurants with a Vegetarian

Thanks, I will take a look!

Bachelor Party Breakfast at 9 AM with alcohol

We will be picked up from wherever we are for breakfast. I just have a feeling someone in the party may want a bloody mary!
I'll take a look at these places. We also will be returning back to the city for dinner. Any recs that are good for small parities and vegetarians?

Thanks!

New(ish) Restaurants with a Vegetarian

Hello-

I grew up in DC and am returning to visit in May. I am looking for a new(ish) restaurant that has vegetarian options (NOTE: it does not need to be vegetarian.) Looking for a fun place with a great vibe. We would like it to be in NW (Dupont, Adams Morgan area..) but willing to explore other areas. Any fun suggestions?

Thanks!

Bachelor Party Breakfast at 9 AM with alcohol

Hello-

I am helping to plan a friend's bachelor party. As an out-of-towner, I am looking for a place for a 9 AM brunch on a Saturday. We will be leaving for a 6 hour brewery tour at 10 AM. The ideal place would take reservations for 9 AM and serve alcohol. Our friend lives in the Haight, but we are willing to have the "meet-up" anywhere that is central SF. The ideal place would be able to get us in and out in an hour!

Thanks!

Montreal/Quebec City for Vegetarians

Wonderful!!! Thank you, we don't have to always go to a vegetarian place..just somewhere we can all find something wonderful.

Partner's mother doesn't like ethnic food that much! So Indian/Lebanese is out of the question.

Thanks!!

Montreal/Quebec City for Vegetarians

Hello There-

Visiting Montreal this week with my partner and his mother. We are a unique group..(1 veggie, 1 fish eating veggie, and one non-adventurous eater.)

We are staying at the Sofitel downtown and willing to explore neighborhoods. We would like to pay $18-$30 for the entree. Anything fun and delicious you would recommend? We also don't like really noisy places.

In QC, we are staying for two nights and will be in lower town.

Merci!

Dinner for Two with a Vegetarian (BYOB?)

I've been there before and loved it! Looking for something a little less expensive. It does not have to be an exclusive veggie place. Anything in Lakeview or Gold Coast would be great!

Good Dinner spot with a hard to please group!

We ended up at Beauty and Essex and Chickalicous. Both were a MAJOR hit with the group. Thank you for the help!

Minetta Tavern/ Locanda Verde or Maialino for Vegetarian Brunch

We went with Minetta Tavern and it was a hit for everyone! The meat eaters and vegetarians rejoiced. Started off empty, but PACKED when we left.

Dinner for Two with a Vegetarian (BYOB?)

Hello Chicago Friends-

I will be in town next week and would like to go somewhere that would be great for a fish eating/vegetarian. I love HB Bistro in Chicago so any other BYOB spots would be wonderful. I am staying downtown on Michigan and would not be opposed to traveling to different neighborhoods.

Any good suggestions? I frequent Chicago often, so anything new would be fun!

Thanks in advance!

Minetta Tavern/ Locanda Verde or Maialino for Vegetarian Brunch

Oh you Chowhounds! You always make it so difficult. I think I may just stay with my reservations to Minetta. The French Toast sounds amazing!
Are the pastries good at Minetta?

Only super early reservations. Is it hard to walk in?

Minetta Tavern/ Locanda Verde or Maialino for Vegetarian Brunch

Hello All!

Going to be in town this weekend and was wondering which would be best for a group with a vegetarian who loves pancakes/french toast.

I currently have reservations at Minetta. Is it too meaty?!

Was thinking about Locnada or Mailalino.

Thanks!

How is Beauty and Essex? Is it too trendy and not good food? Sort of sounds fun if we get there early for the group. We now have a 5:45 reservation. We aren't going to the 10 PM show, we are no doing a matinee and then going to dinner. My partner's mom loves Chickalicious, so we will go after dinner.

Thanks!

Public looked perfect! They are closed for a wedding that evening. We are fine with walking. It doesn't have to be in Union Square, just thinking about time constraints. But if we have a 7:30 res, I think we can get to the show by 10:00 PM. I've been to Craft, and I was fine with it. It didn't blow me away. I'll look at Aldea! Is Ciano that expensive? It looks like it could be a good option. We are looking for February 25th at around 7:30.

Thanks!!

Four Nights in New Orleans

We had a lovely dinner at Dante's Kitchen and Jaquesimos!

Yeah...it isn't that long of a walk. I thought of Devi, but my partner's mom is a Midwest lady. She doesn't like Indian! We have been to Dirt CAndy, it was fun but nothing I wanted to go back too. Casa Mono looks like the veggie will be eating goat cheese and beets!

Sorry to be so tough!!! Ciano looked too pricey. I guess we can do Italian. But I was looking more outside the box.

We have been to Babbo! Loved it, but want to try something different. We are going to a show in Union Square at 10 PM. It seems like everything is booked already! There is a wedding at Public. Acme is full. Vanadaag is too far east! What to do? What to do?

Thank you SGordon! You are wonderful. Vandaag sounds interesting!! I've been to ABC Kitchen and it was ho-hum to me. I was looking at Acme, but it sounds like it could be noisy and I couldn't find the menu online.

Thanks!

Hello wonderful Chow NYC Folk-

My family is visiting the city is visiting the city at the end of Feb. We are looking for a fun restaurant (nothing on either the UWS or UES.)

We have a couple limitations:
1. Nothing too noisy
2. My father is a self proclaimed "foodie" who lives in the city and in the wine business. He usually is unimpressed with a lot of restaurants and says, "I can do that."
3. We have a vegetarian in our group.
4. Something newish, since we have been to many places around town.
5. Non-Asian (have someone with a MSG allergy)

Any ideas? I know it's quite vague..but I am looking for somewhere that would fit the bill. We could do $15-$30 mains.

We like New American, Italian, farm fresh, etc.

Thanks!

Four Nights in New Orleans

Hello Everyone-

My partner, his mother and I are heading to New Orleans directly after Christmas. We are a unique group! My partner is a vegetarian, I am a fish eater and his mom eats almost everything!

I already have a lunch a Commander's Palace on our list. We once went when it was in Vegas and loved it. Anywhere else that should be a "must do" in New Orleans. Is it very busy during Christmas, should I make reservations for a party of three?

Thanks!

The Bachelor Farmer - who has been and can comment

It was good, but not worth the total hype. I would rather pay those prices at Alma.

Detroit for a vegetarian

Thanks!

We had a special dinner at Cranbrook School, it was very good! At the Cranbrook house. We went to Traffic Jam on Thursday night. I thought it was quite odd. The Ethiopian plate was fine, but not as traditional than any I could find in Minneapolis. My friend got the crab risotto, that was weird and tasted out of the box. The space was too big and quiet. I would not really return there. On Saturday night our group went to the Detroit Brewery, which was fine. I didn't pick, but it was free! On Saturday we went to Royal Kabob in Detroit. That was fantastic! The little pita bread warm pockets with garlic butter was amazing. The shrimp dish was outstanding as well as the falafel and other dips.

Thanks!

Des Moines Update

Well our group is at it again. About 10-15 of us are coming in for vacation to Des Moines. Anything new and exciting on the dining scene since last year?
