What is the closest New England equivalent to an In-N-Out burger?

Hello, crowdingthepan and southie_chick and Morganna! Thank you all for your responses...your generosity is heartwarming. I'll send all responses to my friend here in SoCal.

Crowding...I've heard of Flat Patties, but I can't remember the source. Saveur, maybe? Regardless...thank you!

Southie...UBurger? New to me!!! I've have Five Guys here, and I was not impressed. (My nephew just told me they have free peanuts...?)

Morganna, my dear, I wish I knew where the young man lives; I don't. All that I was told initially was that it was New England. Only when CH told me that I had to choose did I...have to choose!

My dears, thank you. I have to go now, and find peanuts for my nephew.

Hello! City of Angels 'hound here. I've been asked by the kind folks at CH to post this here, rather than on the L.A. board. The logic escapes me a bit, but I respect Chow regardless.

Anyway...a friend has asked me to find out what is the nearest New England equivalent to an In-N-Out burger. You're welcome to voice your like or disdain for any or all, but the friend's young nephew has fallen in love with I-N-O while he's been here, and he'd like to relive some Cali moments when he's back home (where that is, I know not).

Thank y'all!

LA Cheap Eats Food Tour--The Aftermath...

I bow to you, Madame or Sir. I would kiss the hem of your garment...especially if it had garlic sauce on it...

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Thanks to everyone! I think I'll go with the taco party idea; it's the most well-suited to this crowd at the moment.

Your ideas are great, and I'll keep all of them in mind...

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Thanks for the wonderful ideas! More, please!

I thought about including more details, but there really aren't many that would narrow the field. The dish doesn't need to be prepared ahead; everyone is an omnivore; spicy's out for the children; any type of cuisine is welcome.

You're great, Chowpeople!

Non-casserole entree liked by adults and kids

Hello, 'hounds!

I'd like to make an entree for three adults and two 10-year-old kids. The children are in a "no-casserole" phase now, which I gather means anything in a baking dish served in squares. The adults are all foodies; the kids were too, once upon a time. Now they prefer KFC and McD to just about anything. (Oh, for the days when they knocked back smoked salmon with abandon...)

I'm an adventurous cook, although my skills aren't quite as advanced as I'd like. Ideas, please, from any and all of you lovely people. Thank you!

Visiting from NYC - what's the "best" of the things that aren't great here?

It's certainly true that Cinco de Mayo is treated by some as simply an opportunity to get smashed, but that's not all that happens. Please take a look at this site: http://golosangeles.about.com/od/fair...

Of course, there are other sites as well.

I hope you all have a marvelous trip to our lovely city!

Help Me Teach My Cousin How to Cook

Hello! I agree with much that has been said so far, so I won't repeat. May I suggest that she get The Joy of Cooking? A wonderful book; not only for its recipes but for its informative sections. And Barbara Kafka's book The Microwave Gourmet might just get her going in the right direction - also because of its informative bits.

Let's not forget what the word peri means (not the prefix):

A lovely, graceful person.

How appropriate.

Any LA-area Swedish Restaurants?

Don't I wish! (IKEA isn't bad - honest. And it's the only game in town.) But I do wish L.A. could do better. I've always hoped that Samuelsson would open a restaurant here...he'd be welcomed with open arms. (And he's so darn handsome!)

In the meantime...you've gotten some very good recommendations for finding Scandie foods. I go to Olson's not just because it's near me, but because it has great stuff, and because I have a crush on Bertil. (During the height of the Christmas season a few - several! - years ago he asked me out for lunch. I'm still reeling...) You'll find limpa, seven sisters cake, and vetebrod. The first is extraordinary for turkey sandwiches; the second will slay any sane dessert-lover in the house, and the third is just magnificent: a magical combination of sweet and savory. Heaven.

Let's all hope that we get another good Scandinavian resto soon. Gustav Anders is much missed...ah, the gravlax!

When one wants a marinated fish dish and orders poke [pohk] salad, does one receive Southern greens instead?
