Sunday Brunch?

Yeah, I know it's getting kinda late .We just yesterday decided to skip one fest day and treat ourselves to a brunch.
How's Restaurant Revolution's brunch? Pricey but is it worth it?
Arnaud's, same question?
I'll check out the other places you named.
Thanks

Sunday Brunch?

We're visiting NO for Jazz Fest and would like to try a Sunday brunch. Good food is the main priority, music would be nice.
I seem to remember The Court of the Two Sisters does a Brunch but is the food any good?
Brennans is closed?
We already have one meal scheduled at Commanders, don't want to go there twice in one visit.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Rye Bread Long Island

I went up on Friday, The Rye Bread, was very good. I also tried two little cakes/ pastries, a Caramel Cheesecake and a Chocolate Mousse cake. Both were excellent
So Thanks again for the recommendation.

Rye Bread Long Island

Oohh Corn Rye, I haven't had that in years. I'll be checking this bakery out for sure. Anything else, beside the breads, that you recommend? That Philly Fluff thing looks interesting. Have you had it?
Thanks

Recommendation for the Concord, NC area

I'm definitely going to the ice cream shop.
I've heard of Cheerwine, never have tried it though.
So either the WAB or Lil Roberts, then Creamery for dessert.
One evening taken care of
Thanks!

Recommendation for the Concord, NC area

Hi, I'm taking a road trip through NC at the end of October. We'll be staying in the Concord area (actually in Kannapolis) and I'm looking for some restaurant recommendations. On the drive down we'll be lunching in Lexington, haven't picked the joint yet. And one night we'll have dinner at Childress Vineyards.. Anything other than chain restaurants in the area? Thanks for any help

Help!! Eastern Nassau, Western Suffolk Recommendation

Hi, Can anyone recommend a restaurant somewhere on the Eastern Nassau, Western Suffolk border for this Sunday? Some place serving Lunch, not Brunch. American, Seafood, Italian cuisines would be the best.
Last minute plans and I don't have a clue where to go.

Thai on Long Island

Do you know the name of the sister that did the cooking? Last week Newsday did an article on Thai restaurants and they had the names of most of the chefs. Does Jintana, Amphai, Veerawat or Lawan sound familiar?

Thai on Long Island

I guess it's Noi I was thinking of. I always thought she was the chef too. I'd love to find the sister if she's cooking anywhere or has her own place. Her food was so good. I cant find a green papaya salad that comes close to hers. Wonder how to find out what happened to her?

Thai on Long Island

Years ago there was a Thai restaurant in West Babylon, Chaophaya. It closed and then reopened in Kings Park. That one closed also. Anyone know if the chef/owner has opened somewhere new? The food was so good and we always enjoyed her great personality (never knew her name though). She was married to an Vietnam Vet, if that helps.

Where can I buy andouille sausage on Long Island?

D'artagnan gave me a list of stored that have carried the andouille in the past, said they would probadly order it for me. I need it for next weekend and between the gas cost and the time issue, the $8.00 they charged for shipping seemed well worth it
