Gift Delivery to Hotel

I'm looking for a place that will deliver to the Crown Plaza in Downtown Seattle. Thinking about either a bottle of champagne and chocolate, or a small cake for my parent's wedding anniversary. Any recommendations of restaurants or bakeries that deliver would be great!

They check in tonight so time is of the essence!

Thank you!

I haven't logged onto chowhound in two years (clearly) but saw this and got really excited! My uncle is head chef at Verdi's so I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal :)

Best pizza in Tallahassee

Momo's and Decent Pizza are actually owned by the same guy so there should be some similarities I would imagine. I haven't been to Decent Pizza but really like Momo's as my personal favorite.

Good eating in Indian Rocks?

All of those option are great!

Try the wings at PJ's or the fish spread, those are the only things really great there.
Dockside Daves is known for their grouper sandwich so thats always good too.
Keegans has definitely switched hands and is not nearly as good as it used to be.

Another good Thai place is Thai-Am 2 by John's Pass.

Frog Pond is delicious so don't miss that!

Largo/Seminole/Pinellas Park Suggestions?

I just have to throw out Fuji Yama. I went there a few weeks ago with my dad and it was incredible. Fresh sushi, beautiful sashimi display, and they also have thai dishes. I would highly recommend it =)

Recipe Idea... Is it good?

Thereis no fruit... just sugar and lemon juice and pectin...I like the almond idea!

If I did red wine and chocolate, should I still do a cream cheese frosting?

Recipe Idea... Is it good?

Emily - I thought about peanut butter too... but got kinda stuck on the cream cheese frosting thing..maybe I'll do that.

Bermuda - I was either going to do a white merlot or cabernet? What would you suggest with the white wine? I like the idea of chocolate with the red!

Recipe Idea... Is it good?

I have a recipe for a wine jam that is usually served with crackers and cream cheese.

However, I want to do a little play on it and use the wine jam in a cupcake... I was thinking about making some kind of cupcake, then filling it with a little jam, and topping it off with a cream cheese frosting.

How does that sound? Also, what kind of cupcake would you suggest? Vanilla, Angel Food cake, etc?

St. Pete Beach - best sub sandwich shop and best pizza

I would suggest pajanos or beach pizza for your pizza. I'm not sure how far they deliver but they are both very good.

Indian Rocks to John's Pass-Help!

I have been there! It is easily overlooked though and that's probably why I forgot it in my earlier post. We went for dinner as a family this past Christmas time. It was really nice because we were the only people in there and you almost forgot you were even in a restaurant. We were all commenting on how quickly you felt like you had been eating there your whole life and how comfortable the owners made you feel. Definitely a place for upscale diners to try.

Indian Rocks to John's Pass-Help!

I'm glad to see people are loving our local food! I'm from IRB and some of my faves are Guppy's, Salt Rock, Crabby Bills, TJ's IceCream (not so much the restaurant), Villa Gallace, and the Pub.

Best packaged non-bakery store bought cookies

Has anyone tried the new oreo strawberry milshake cookies? I saw them at Target today and was pretty tempted.

The Venue Tampa Bay

What is the age it markets to or actually attracts. I know Storman's was college and teenagers but this seems like a more middle-aged place

Chili's Blue Ribbon Salad

I saw this on another discussion board and I guess it has long been removed from their menu. However the poster was saying that they would make it if you asked. Does anyone know what was in it?

Starbucks Improvement???

A new starbucks just opened near me and the employees there are excellent. They are very willing to help and re-make drinks, suggest items, etc. I think the newer staff are being trained the "classic" starbucks way that we all love and remember. Maybe those that were trained within the last two years just dont get it.

Bar Cookies

I want to make a bar cookie (layered, not just a cookie cooked in a pan) but was hoping to use Splenda for the sugar because my uncle is diabetic.

Has anyone tried that with a particular recipe or have any ideas to make this a success?

Winter Park

I'm meeting a friend from UCF in Winter Park for dinner and was looking for nice, fun places to eat but also affordable. I'm looking for maybe $8- $15 per person and relaxed environment.

Thanks!
