SF for one day in September

Ok, we have narrowed it down to Perbacco, Cotogna, SPQR or Flour and Water for our one dinner in SF. We are looking for great Italian with a nice atmosphere. Any thoughts?

SF for one day in September

Hi all, will be in SF for a Thursday night dinner and Friday breakfast and lunch at the end of September. We live in NYC so don't want to go to any place with a NYC outpost. We would love Californian, Italian, Chinese/Asian for dinner and/or anything really great/not to miss that we should try. Would love a great comfort food type breakfast and lunch. Any ideas would be very much appreciated as there is alot to choose from and we are not familair with the city. Thanks in advance!

Ciano - Excellent meal,

I am happy to be the second dissenter but not for the food. We loved the food, however, they screwed up our order and then blamed us for it. The manager yelled at us (which was insane yet kind of funny at the same time) when we informed him that the order screw up was not our mistake. He then argued with us which culminated in him forbiding us to ever come back! I eat out all the time and have never experienced ANYTHING like this. I will never go back. Such a shame since the food was really good.

Thank you veru much for the suggestions! You are indeed correct, La Pergola is VERY expensive for NYE (1,200 Euros!), so I think we will go there another night and eat the regular menu which looks incredible. Antico Arco looks great, I think we may end up there. Looking forward to your other suggestions. Best, KVF

Early January in Rome

Thank you so much for your prompt reply. I have only been to Rome once many years ago (and was on a shoe string budget at that time) and am really looking forward to eating well!
Regarding NYE, we are perfectly fine for a tasting menu at the prices (or more or less) than what you quoted. I do not know the city well enough to tell you what part we would want to be in (and would welcome your thoughts) but somewhere lively where we could see the fireworks (of possibel from a restairant) with excellent food would fit the bill. We are definitely looking for somewhere that will have a celebratory atmosphere, champagne etc.... For the other nights a typical Roman tratorria with rustic food and a trendier update on Roman food would also be great. We would(as probably every tourist would) love delcious pizza and gelato during the day. We are going to see the sights and could take a taxi anywhere.

I posted this new post as when I was reviewing all of the orther posts as many appeared to be outdated or focused on a couple of places. It looks like La Rosetta and Martricianella received favorable reviews and I am considering those as well. Thank you in advance for your time in responding, tavoleromane. I will be sure to check out your site.

My husband and I will be in Rome for 4 night starting with NYE. We are looking for restaurant recommendations within Rome for 12/31/11, 1/1/12, 1/2/12 and 1/3/12. We enjoy all types of Italian cuisine from fine to rustic. Looking forward to your recommendations.

Hi everyone, I will be in philly for a night next week and am staying in Logan Square and will not have a car. Can anyone recommend the best cheesesteak within walking distance? Thanks in advance for the advice, I am not familiar with the city at all.

Best Kitchen Appliance Store in NYC

Can anyone recommend a reputable store in NYC that sells Gas ranges? All I can seem to find is Gringer and Sons, which does not seem to have good online reviews. I am convinced that there has to be more. Thanks!

Gas Oven

Our apartment has a Stoves brand under the counter gas oven and a Kitchen Aid gas cooktop. The Stoves oven has broken (and the company is overseas and out of business apparently, so spare parts are not an option). I was told at an appliance store this weekend that it is against the law in NYC to have an under the counter gas oven and that we would need to buy a range. I am wondering if anyone has come across this issue? I am also wondering what gas ranges you would recommend. Thanks in advance for your time.

Atlantic City

I will be in Atlantic City for one night next weekend and was hoping for a dinner recommendation. We live in NYC so were hoping to eat a place without a NYC presence. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance...

Barcelona, Majorca and Madrid

Thank you everyone for your replies. I have read the previous posts on this board and am wondering what everyone would recommend as the best sitdown dinner available Sunday night in Barcelona. We are going to Comerc 24 on Saturday night per the recommendations on this Board.

Barcelona, Majorca and Madrid

We are traveling to Barcelona (Saturday at noon/Sunday/Monday am), Majorca (Monday at noon through Friday am) and then to Madrid (Friday at noon /Saturday/Sunday am) in late July. In Barcelona we are staying in the Eixample neighborhood, a few blocks away from Passeig de Gràcia, in Majorca we are staying in Deia and in Madrid we are staying in the museum triangle.

We have never been to Spain before and are VERY excited to go. I am hoping to obtain restaurant and maybe itinerary suggestions in order to maximize our time in each place. I would love to go to an excellent "splurgy" sit down dinner in each place and on the other nights and eat tapas/pixtos or other delicious sitdown spots.

Please let me know if anymore information would be helpful in order to write back. Thank you in advance!

Marrakesh and Fez

I am traveling to Marrakesh (Sunday/Monday/Tuesday) and Fez (Wednesday/Thursday/Friday)in late July/early August and I am looking for restaurant recommendations in each. We have not been before so would be looking to sample traditional fare as well as more modern fare. Price is not an object, we are just looking for the best food. Please let me know if you would need any more information to provide suggestions. Thank you for the help in advance.
