HELP! Lunch tomorrow!

Great idea, looking at the menu now

HELP! Lunch tomorrow!

Looking for something with a great wine and champagne list. I love a hot dog but tomorrow we wanted a more special lunch.

HELP! Lunch tomorrow!

Looking for a place to officially celebrate summer for tomorrow lunch. Near the water would be nice, a place where we can relax for a leisurely lunch. No specific cuisine in mind, we like everything.

Gloucester/Cape Ann ideas

I Second Short and Main! Love the food, atmosphere, drinks and the bartenders.

Shaws Fenway getting beer and wine!

That liquor store has never had a decent wine inventory and the liquor inventory is not consistent.

Whisky Tasting

Citizen does have a great selection. Joy, Sean or Mike would all be great.

Another option would be Urban Grape. TJ has an interesting selection and I am sure would love to put something special together.

Fish Tacos & Tequila

I love fish tacos and order them almost every place I go. I think that they are ok at La Verdad, the highlight being the tortillas. I prefer the ones that are actually serverd at the chain Margaritas. You also cannot beat the tequila prices. But if you are looking inthe city, Zocalo is another option.

Going to Marbella

Hello Friends-

My husband are traveling to Marbella this September. We will be flying into Madrid and driving down. We will need a place to stop for lunch. Any places you reccomend that are a must?

We will be in Marbella for 6 nights. We are looking for some great restaurants. We eat anything, during our recent trips to Spain we have eaten at Arzac, Zuberoa and el bulli. All of the reccomendations do not need to be this fancy, as we also love the pinxos bars in San Sebastian. Any help would be greatly appreciated and we promise to report backl!!

Thank You!!

Search for the Greatest Bloody Mary

Union Bar and Grille used to be my favorite Bloody Mary, spicy and served with Tomolives. I haven't been there in a few months though.

Dark and Stormy- summer of 2011

I love a good dark and Stormy. My favorite ginger beer is Regatta, very gingery. Stephanies on Newbury actually has it. All the other restaurants I have been to use Gosling gineger beer.

Got the Reservations to El Bulli!!! Now need help???

Thank you so much. I tried to book that hotel and they were booked. We ended up finding a apartment for rent for the night right in Roses. Now we just have to book a cab for the trip to the restaurant.

Thanks for the tip about Raffa's!!!

Got the Reservations to El Bulli!!! Now need help???

Hello all-

I got that magical email confirming that I have in fact scored a table for El Bulli in April. We are flying into Barcelona. What is the best way to get to Roses- renting a car, train???

Also, I hear that the dinners are almost five hours long. So staying the night might be a good idea. Any advice on hotels or pension. We need nothing fancy, just a place to crash.

Thank you in advance for all of the help!!

Do you know the name of the new Korean place in Allston?

Which new restaurants are on your to-do list and why?

I think Brothers Crawfish is so good. Cannot wait to hear what you think of it!

Cookbooks for sale at Newbury College Library in Brookline

Thank you Dave!!! I went today and picked up 8 great books!!!!

has anyone been to Mass Ave yet?

It was blazing. If you have ever entered the previous restaurant Match, it is the same fireplace. This website picture kind of gives you a glimpse of what it looks like http://calendar.boston.com/boston-ma/...

has anyone been to Mass Ave yet?

I went to the soft opening for the restaurant. Though it was the first couple of nights and they were trying to iron out some food and service issues. The room is very cozy and comfortable, very inviting. The service in the dining room is very week. Most staff you can tell does not have that much experience. The bartenders seem to be the shining light in that department. The food had some hits and some misses. The menu is small plates meant to be shared and they come out when they are ready, so no coursing. This is great if you do not mind sharing with your dining companions. The kobe sliders with the quail egg was at the top of my list. If I were to go back it would be to sit at the bar and have a snack.

What do you with think of this Radius/Via Matta Living Social Deal?

Does not seem like a deal at all. Just seems like away to get you in the door and spend more money.

Estragon reviews?

Here is a link to the website http://www.estragontapas.com/. If you click on the bottom tab events they have a $1 tapas menu from 5:00-7:00 Mon-Thur. Have fun!

Estragon reviews?

My DC and myself love, love Estragon. Sahil, a server and bartender, could not be more honest and accommodating. The food is great and the closest renditions to Spain that we have come across. Julio, actually gave us recommendations of restaurants when we visited Spain. I would recommend trying pringa, coles de bruselas, Alcachofas Fritas, Gambas al Ajillo and Vieiras con Crema de Albariño y Azafrán. The house made desserts are great too. My favorite is the the goat cheese sorbet!!!!

Franklin Cafe: I DON'T GET IT

I completely agree with the Franklin in the south end. The food and the service had been off the last 3/4 times I have been in the last few months. On the other hand I have had really great experiences with the Franklin in Southie in the last few month. The bartenders make a great cocktail, the servers could not be nicer and the food is spot on. I would give them a try if you are ever in the neighborhood!
