Orange County Travels

We will be traveling to Dana Point around July 4th. We are looking for can't miss places to eat; seafood, ethnic, fresh, and burgers. We will drive anywhere in Orange County. We are also staying one night in Temecula, so any wineries would be helpful too. Thanks.

Top That Pizza?

MommaOwl,
Thanks for the review. I will try it soon. I like the options.
I've tried most of the pizza places in Dallas, but can't make it to the best ones on the nights when i crave pizza in Richardson.

Best egg dish in Vancouver/Victoria

We are landing tomorrow in Vancouver for a couple of days, then to Victoria. What/where are the best egg dishes? Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Chicken, duck, or quail.
Thanks.

Vancouver/Victoria

We are coming to Vancouver and Victoria at the end of June, 6 nights. We are looking for one nice meal in each place and other must have places. We prefer Chinese (soup dumplings), tapas, small plates, cheeses, seafood, and good wine. We are also planning to visit some wineries so suggestions would be helpful.

Weekend trip.

I will say out of different city posts for help, Chicago has been the most heplful. We are looking for both unique places and food we don't have here in Dallas.
Kuma is on the list, but not 100%.
The wife doesn't like mexican food, but likes Blayless and is open to one of his places. I've explained his isn't the Tex-Mex at most places.
And one good hot dog....we do not have any goods one here.
We prefer one nice full meal and small plates/bar/app's at others so we can try more places.

Weekend trip.

We are visiting Chicago from Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th. We only have two places set for food, Moto and Hot Doug's. From reading previous blogs and other sites, The Purple Pig will probably be another stop. We are trying to get into Next and would cancel Moto at that point. We would like to find an Asian place with soup dumplings if possible. Belly Shack looks good too. Girl and Goat sounds intersting. Xoco will be a brunch. Any hidden jems that we are missing. We are staying at the Hotel Palomar. We will travel for a great plate of food.
Thanks for the help.

New Years Eve

Searching for a place for dinner and drinks in Dallas for New Year's Eve. Something upscale but not coat and tie. We did Victor Tangos a couple of years ago and loved it and want something new this year.

We are flying into LAX next Thursday and driving south to Dana Point. There will be 4 adults and one child (1 1/2). We need a good place for lunch. We need something not to far off the freeway and not to upscale for the kiddo. We are doing Break of Dawn, Watermarc, and Crowbar on other days.

Frisco Texas

Go to Loft 610. Amazing food but really doesn't fit into the three you listed. Check out the menu.
Tre Wilcox is on Top Chef if you are into that show.
