Hendersonville

Just moved to Hendersonville and am starting to search out interesting places to eat. Have eaten at most of the places on Main St. Anything else that is local that I might try?

Fresh Seafood Market (Asheville)

We recently moved to the Candler/Asheville NC area, and are finding it difficult to find a good quality fresh seafood market.

Any suggestions?

Did anyone make it to the the new Fairway in Woodland Park?

I've been there a few times since they opened. While the store is busy, it's not like the Paramus location. Passing by the Shoprite to get back on Rt46, I noticed how packed their parking lot was,...much more than the Fairway lot.

I'd rather shop here, than at Whole Foods. Same quality and better section. Smoked salmon and freshly roasted coffee beans are a must buy.

Best Food in Bergen Co, NJ

Best bagels - Sam's Bagels. Hamburg turnpike, Wayne. They are what a bagel should taste like..not big and bready. Hand rolled, too.

Who uses Almond milk?

They are completely raw, as in Meusli (sp?). I didn't think I would like it, but now I love it! Toasting them sounds interesting. I'll have to try it!

Who uses Almond milk?

I make the most wonderful cereal concoction: 1/2 cup raw rolled oats, one half apple, chopped and 1/2 cup almond milk. I use the refridgerated version. It is far superior to the other.

Wedding Venues in Northern NJ or Rockland county with great food

Attended a wedding at the Florentine Gardens and at Nanina's in the Park , just last year. Comments from someone high in the food industry rated Nanina's far better than Florentine gardens for both food AND service. F Gardens is pretty, especially for an outside wedding, but food was just so so and service was terrible.

What dishes do you like at Brookside Thai (Bloomfield)?

My favorite dishs at Brookside are the soft shell crabs in thai basil sauce and the duck with crispy broccoli. The calamari are to die for... tender, crispy with a wonderful dipping sauce.

Varelmann's in Rutherford used to carry a great spice cake. Call them to see if they still make it.
