Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach

Hi there - I will be taking my Mom for a long weekend at AI/Fernandina Beach for her 80th birthday in April. So far I have a reservation at Le Clos for her birthday and also a reservation for the next night ,at LuLu's. I need to select another place for the trip and wanted to consult this group of experts for advice. I was on the island myself last year (with a group of friends) and we had a fun evening/good meal at Beech Street, but when I consult this and other food sites, it seems very uneven/not particularly favorable for that venue so thought I would swing back by here for current opinions on Beech street and other places I may want to consider. Thanks so much!

One Day on MVI in mid-June - lunch in OB, Edgartown or Vineyard Haven?

I'll be headed there! Thanks again to everyone for suggestions. I'm flying to Boston in the morning!

I love fresh seafood and pastas more than anything, favoring simple but sophisticated preparations. You raise a good point about grabbing something on the fly when my time is limited. One thing I'm definitely on the lookout for, either on MVI or Nantucket, is a great lobster roll.

Thank you for the recommendations!

Thanks to all for your good suggestions re my quick day on MVI, including the extra words of advice on transport options, which are certainly helpful to a first time visitor with limited time. I will report back!

Right you are, and I misspoke. I was thinking of my day trip to Nantucket when I made reference to the Hyannis Ferry. Thank you, and I look forward to any lunch suggestions you have for MV!

Hi - I've been researching related board replies, but still feel that I need some help, so thanks in advance. I will be taking the ferry over from Hyannis on the weekend of June 11-12 to get a quick glimpse of MVI - my first visit, but hope to come back for a proper stay at another time. I will not have a car so will be relying on the public shuttle transport and so cannot stray too far off the beaten path. Ideally, I would like to have a nice lunch (or early dinner), someplace atmospheric (waterview?). $$ is not an issue. I will be by myself, fyi, although I do not mind dining alone in virtually any setting. I'll be headed back on the ferry that evening as my lodgings are in Hyannis. Thank you so much!!

Best Options for Game in Central London - end of November

I want to thank everyone who replied to this query! I did know of Rules (and I should have said that "up front") and I do agree that my "mum's" big trip to London is a pull-out-the-stops occasion. It will be Rules or Corrigan's, likely, and I will report back after our trip. Can't scrimp on the drinks - I think the haunch of venison would be offended, don't you? Again, thank you for your kindness. London is my favorite of all cities, and I am thrilled to return after 12+ years.

Best Options for Game in Central London - end of November

Hello 'Hounds - I will be visiting London for the first time in many years at the end of November. Given the season, I would like to devote a meal to some choice game dishes. I would be grateful for suggestions. As an aside, my mother will be with me for her first-ever visit to England, so of course I am keen for her to have memorable, welcoming experiences. We will be staying near the Tottenham Court Road tube stop. I would rather not exceed 40 GBP pp if possible. My thanks in advance for your help!
