Battery Park/WTC Area with 38 children

I am planning on taking my fifth grade class to the 9/11 Memorial in June. I am looking for a decent pizzeria that can feed 38 children and about 12 adults. Any recommendations?

need a great resturant

My friend and I just ate at Roma on Atwells Avenue. I thought the food was delicious and the server was adorable. Best pizza since moving to RI from metro NYC. The caesar salad was also brought out slightly grilled, a surprise and real treat. I cannot wait to go back again, Took some pastries to go, and they were truely decadent. Laid back and casual.

The Basics: How to Make Gazpacho

This is not only easy but delicious! You might have to adjust the seasonings, but I made a much more elaborate gazpacho from a magazine, and this was much better. Simple is the best!

Girl Trip

I was in Chicago about a month ago. Loved it; it was my first time. We ate at a great Italian Restaurant called Piccolo Sogno. Although the waiter was not knowledgeable about the wine, the food made up for it, from the stuffed zucchini blossoms to the stuffed ravioli with mushrooms, cheese and truffle oil to the Medittarian Seabass. Cocktails at Bin 36 is where you can order a variety of wine flights. A MUST is Frontera, Rick Bayless's Mexican Restaurant. Although I think my guacomole is better, the food is delicious, especially the vegetarian entrees. If it is not too cold, the Architecture River Cruise is a great introduction to the history of Chicago architecture. Enjoy your trip!

Bruna's Table--Westerly, RI Review

I like the produce at China Grocer. I wish the woman who works there spoke better English. I have tried to ask questions, but it has been difficult!

Bruna's Table--Westerly, RI Review

I might want to make reservations especially in the next couple of weeks. I do not think it will be a problem after Labor Day.

Bruna's Table--Westerly, RI Review

We ate at Bruna's (finally) last night. We had a really great meal, especially for Westerly. The service was great; Lee was on top of things! Food was really fresh. We had a Caesar salad and chopped salad to start. Caesar was good and not heavily dressed. The chopped salad was good, although it was slightly brand. My boyfriend's filet mignon was excellent and cooked perfectly (rare to medium rare). My fettucini was al dente and served with a mushroom cream sauce. The dessert, chocolate hazelnut torte was excellent, rich and not too sweet. We will definitely be back again. We arrived at 9:15 and their was a full dining room!
