Dinner In Wilmington DE

We have reservations at KK on Saterday and we are staying there. The descriptions cracked me up as while not all Wasps we are all over seventy and "white shoe".Well, I am honest. I think Eclipse Bistro might be a nice counter poise to KK. I just can not begin to thank you all for really helpful comments. Thank you all very much.

Dinner In Wilmington DE

We need a great restaurant for a wonderful dinner in Wilmington De in October. I was headed for Domaine Hudson until I saw some Chowhound chatter and I thought I should ask this question first. Thank you.

Four Great SF Restaurants Needed

Thank you so much. We went to Delfina and had one of the best pizzas that we have ever eaten. We went to Caffe Sociale and had a very sophisticated dinner. Both choices outstanding. Thank you!

We need four really good restaurants around Lake Forrest. Quality of food and food presentation are the only criteria. What say you?

Four Great SF Restaurants Needed

Whiner: Thank you for your tips. I do not wish to throw away money nor does the great expensive of a dinner make me believe that because it was expensive that it must have been good. I do not believe that expense equates to goodness. It may allow for more unusual or scarce products to be used in a food preperation but that is about it. I live down the road from the CIA in Hyde Park NY and the young chefs are prone to unusual preperations in the belief that that means it will be good when nothing could be further from the truth.

We have not been to SF in about five years. I would like to know if you had only four dinners in SF where would they be? Quality of food and food presentation are the only criteria. What say you?

An Italian Gem , A True Find!

Bob Gaj:
It is a more intimate space, but I have not been to Aroma Osteria in such a long time that I do not trust my food comparison. Please try Bacco and tell me what you think.

An Italian Gem , A True Find!

As I was buying wine at the Arlington Liquor Store I saw that a menu was displayed, and as I looked it over I realized that it was the real deal! The restaurant Bacco was next door in the shopping center across from Adams at 718 Duchess Turnpike. I had lunch and was bowled over. It's family owned. The owner is the chef, an Italian that has cooked primarily in Europe. Last night I took my wife and another couple so they could see. Everything is homemade. Homemade bread arrives with three different olive oil infusions and then treat yourself to a real Italian dinner. A real sophisticated Italian dinner in a soft candle lit space. I had last night the most delacate calamari and then homemade pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari. I wished I had tried the octopus or the chicken rolled with proscutto and mozzarella. By the way, as a gift from the chef we were given the freshest mozzarella that I have ever had in my life with red peppers, and prosciutto. Only one dessert was ordered and that one was phylo wrapped around molten chocolate. This is a true find, and I offer this to all the Chowhounds that have helped me in the past. Their telephone number is 845-454-1882. I have spent many pleasurable hours in Italy and this little restaurant brings back memories.

Pizza & Pasta In Duchess County?

Corky, thank you. We shall try that,but last night we had what I think will prove to be the best. Wood fueled brick ovens, and the best pizzas of many types.. The restaurant is off 55 in Lagrangeville NY and is named Amadeos Pizzeria. The restaurant looks Tuscan, and not your usual Pizza type, but it is great! Really good! It has wines and beers only, no licquor.

Bard College Restaurant Help

We ejoyed Flatiron very much. We had a 10OZ steak, many options on sauces, with frites, and a great salad. The steak was $19 and well worth it. They know how to make a martini too. The ambiance was very good. Soft light, beige with chocolate acents, and butcher paper on the table with linen napkins. We thought just great if you feel like a ateak.

Mid-Hudson Valley Celebratory Dinner help needed!

The service at the Red Devon is AWFUL! We still can not believe it! It set a new standard for lack of service! Madalin's Table has never let us down. How about Mercado in Redhook? Great food.
