I had been emailing with Trey trying to set something up but it looks like our schedules will not workout. So table three will have to be another time. Thanks for your recommendations.

Degustation or Blue Hill

I have reservations upcoming at Kajitsu. I have another free night and am trying to decide between Degustation or Blue Hill. What is the current price for the Blue Hill tasting and is it worth the money? By comparison is Degustation as good a value as it seems(for 10 course tasting)?

Thank you

Nose to Tail Restaurant in Philly. Late Night Food

Where is the best place to get great nose to tail cooking late night in Philly? A great Place for chefs/cooks/servers to go after a long night of service for Great food and drink. Something akin to David Chang's places in NYC ar Au Pied Du Cochon in montreal.

Try Gayle I was there three years ago and it was really good small and intamite. I would reccomend Lacroix if you want to sit in the kitchen my meal recently in the dining room was a real disappointment.

Where to get casual Southern food in Richmond, VA? (or better yet, towards Charlottesville)

Maya has some of the things you are looking for. They are right down the street from Mel's. Just had some great Biscuits and gravy there for Brunch. For BBQ Check out Jinxs, Way down market street, or Blue Ridge Pig which is out in Nelson County but worth the drive.

Zatinya - still good?

Went fairly recently and enjoyed there happy hour food and drink specials. Also they had some great Basterma.

Charleston, SC - fine dining for birthday

I agree with DaleJ Mcrady's is the way to go. I have taken two trips to Charleston just to eat Sean Brocks food. They do great things with great products.

Charleston SC trip. One day and One night

Mcrady's would be my first choice in Charleston and probably FIG second.

Matthew Ridgeway

Anyone know where Matthew Ridgeway is working these days? I had a great meal at Lacroix when he was chef de cuisine.

Local Food

I find the quality issuse come up quite a bit the only thing I can't find down here of superior quality are things like fish and luxury items foie, caviar. The beef we source locally is some of the best I've ever had.

Local Food

Local Food

I guess buying as much as possible locally. I know the farms in bucks and lancaster county have great products to offer local chefs. I was just wondering who is taking advatage of this. I am the chef of a restaurant in central virginia and was looking for a place near my mom that does similiar food.

Dinner July 4th and 5th

Need dining options for the fourth and fifth. One with three kids and mom, six total and one night just my wife and I. We were thinking Pub and Kitchen with the kids and Lacroix for just us. We have been to Lacroix before and sat at the chefs table I realize the chef has changed. Should we go back or is there somewhere else we should try. Any thoughts apreciated.
