Restaurants near St. Regis Princeville

I know there are some good restaurants (like Merriman and Plantation Gardens) near Popui area. But are there any good fine-dining restaurants and lunch spots near this hotel? I have a rental car but I would rather not drive >30-40 min to get something decent to eat.

help with four meals in 1.5 days

I have a similar dilemma. I'll be arriving NO at around 11am on Mothers Day and I have three meals before I leave NO Monday afternoon. My meal plan: EAT (gumbo) for brunch, Mr. B (BBQ Shrimp) for dinner. I don't have any plan on Monday lunch (I'll be leaving at 4 pm on Monday). If I want duck or roast pig (cochron), where should I go? Should I switch my duck/pig meal for Sunday dinner and have lunch at Mr. B on Monday instead?

Beefeater Steak House

Three years ago I was in Hollywood and had an excellent skirt steak at this Argentinean restaurant. Are they still around? Has anyone tried this restaurant recently?

I went to Zurich last year and everyone flocked to two shops for the best truffles: Teuscher & Sprungli. Teuscher have stores in several cities in the States. Sprungli have none and you have to buy it online.

Cheap eats in Stockholm

Too bad, the Grand Hotel Smorgasbord won't be available until late December. But I did get a chance to have Julbord at Ulla Winbladh after my visit to the Vasa Museum. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. I have also tried F12 and have their shellfish...yummy! Overall, I don't think Stockholm is extremely pricy. Yes, it's a little bit expensive comparatively, but not by much especially if you compare it with NY or London.

Cheap eats in Stockholm

PicklingJessica, you seem to be quite familiar with Stockholm dining scene. Can you tell me where I should go for some good dagens ratt? I'll be arriving at Stockholm on Friday morning and want to get some good food right away. Btw, is the smorgasbord at Grand hotel worth a try?

Cheap eats in Stockholm

k, one little dirty secret, I'm actually allergic to alcohol. No expensive dinner with wine is out of the question. I DO want to try a decent smorgasbord with about US$50, if possible. What would be considered as Swedish national dish or national snack? I'm definitely gonna try one or two dagens rätt. Where should I go?

On a side note that has nothing to do with food, is the 3-day stockholm worth the SEK540 price?

Cheap eats in Stockholm

I'm gonna spend 3 days in Stockholm for this thanksgiving (11.24-11.27). Do "cheap eats" exist in the city at all? I know I'm gonna visit one of the expensive restaurants listed in White Guide:

1. Oaxen
2. F12
3. Esperanto
4. Mistral
5. Edsbacka krog
6. Pontus in the green house
7. Lux
8. Vassa Eggen
9. Leijontornet
10. Operakällaren

Restaurants around Westin Waterfront

I'm gonna be staying at the new Westin Waterfront hotel next week and I'm just wondering if there are any exceptional non-fancy seafood or "local" restaurants within walking distance or a short T-ride. My budget is about $10 for breakfast, $15 for lunch and $40 for dinner (w/o alcohol). Also, any Sunday brunch that I must not miss??
