Italian Restaurant Recommendations Needed for Miami Lakes or Miami Gardens

I need Italian restaurant recommendations for a party of 9 in the Miami Lakes or Miami Gardens area for this Saturday. Prefer an "old school" small mom and pop eatery.

Need Cuban and German restaurant recommendations for visiting New Yorkers

I have family from New York and Hong Kong visiting next week and am in need of restaurant recommendations. My sister from New York wants great Cuban food similar to La Teresita in Tampa if anyone is familiar with that establishment and the Hong Kong family memebrs want German food. Family will be staying in South Beach/Bal Harbour areas and we are willing to drive for a great meal. If German is not an option, will gladly accept Eastern European recommendations.

Soup dumplings in Mia-Ft. Lauderdale?

Thank you Frodnesor. An okay soup dumpling is better than no soup dumpling at all!!!

Soup dumplings in Mia-Ft. Lauderdale?

I have been craving the soup dumplings from Joe's Shanghai in NYC lately. Is there any place in Miami or Ft. Lauderdale that serves anything remotely close to those yummy soup dumplings?

Any good mofongo in the Tampa Bay area?

My boyfriend fell in love with mofongo served with fried pork chunks while in Puerto Rico. I was hoping to find a place that served a mofongo similar to what he had as a upcoming birthday treat. Any suggestions?

Reliably good food in Downtown St. Pete?

El Cap has great burgers. If you are looking for a place to hold some evening meetings, I would suggest Bangkok #9 on Central Avenue next to the Dome Grill (also a good greasy spoon for breakfast). Bangkok does pretty decent, reasonably priced Thai food, sushi and some Vietnamese dishes. Another restaurant to consider for dinner meetings is Jo-Jo's in Citta on Central Avenue as well. Simple Italian with plenty of space to accomodate a larger group.

De Santo Restaurant has been getting rave reviews. Anyone been there yet?
Also, has anyone tried the new restaurant which use to house Tedesco's?

Looking for recs especially in the area of Aguada, Aguadilla, Mayaguez, Rincon, Pone and San Juan. Thanks!

Laziz Restaurant in Clearwater, Is it worth the drive?

My boyfriend and I are thinking about going to Laziz this week. We live near downtown St. Pete so we are wondering if it is worth the drive or should we just stick to India Grill in downtown...Any thoughts?

What's the skinny on Tedesco's (St. Pete)

Joan,

I am a frequent eater of everything Bella Brava. And I do agree, the caesar salad is a great twist on what has become a sanitized restaurant item. Next time try the beef or tuna carpacchio as well as any of the pizzas. They are thin crust and have that yummy char bottom from the oven. The pasta bolognese is a standard italian dish but they do it right with lots of subtle flavors!

What's the skinny on Tedesco's (St. Pete)

I was thinking about going to Tedesco's for lunch tomorrow. I haven't been there for lunch in quite some time (it was always a hit or miss with them). Last time I was there we had brunch and it was pretty darn good. Any thoughts or suggestions for lunch there or any other place?

Any good sandwich places in Kenneth City? (St. Pete area)

So I remember reading about a place in Kenneth City that serves great sandwiches. One sandwich is known as the heart attack because it comes with french fries in the sandwich. Does anyone known the name? And any other suggestions? ~Thanks!

Food and Wine festival '07 @ Disney's EPCOT, Orlando, FL

You can get a Florida resident discount if you purchase your tickets online at Disney's site. Also they have a will call option and the tickets are available the day of purchase at the ticket counter. Just got my tixs for Epcot, going Sunday. Can't wait to try all the yummy foods and imbibe in some libations! I always sample the foods that I can't find in my local restaurants or are simply ones I would never attempt to make myself.
