Bermuda Birthday Trip Dinner Plans

Thank you, bdachow! :)

Bermuda Birthday Trip Dinner Plans

Thanks so much, Athena for the input and the tip about Coconuts!

Bermuda Birthday Trip Dinner Plans

Hi All,

I will be celebrating my birthday on the lovely island of Bermuda in a few weeks staying at Tucker's Point with my husband. I will be there for 4 nights. This is what I was thinking for my dinner plans. Would love some comments/input!

Thursday- Wahoo's Bistro & Patio
Friday- The Point ( this is my actual birthday night so I wanted a splurge! is this a good choice?)
Saturday- Mad Hatter's
Sunday- Coconuts (does anyone know the costs of the set menu for beach dining?)

So, I only have one dinner planned at the Resort, I wasn't sure if I should switch out one of these for another restaurant at TP? I see there's a place at the beach club called Sul Mer and then an Italian place called Sul Verde. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Or any other suggestions in general?

I'm so excited to be back on the Island! I was last there when I was 16 and my husband has never been! When I was there when I was 16 I remember really liking The Pickled Onion! I may have to stop in for a drink!

Also dying to have a bowl of fish chowder!

Cape Cod in November.. need suggestion for Chatham Area

Thanks all for all of these recommendations! Just one question. Are these places open on Sundays in November?

Cape Cod in November.. need suggestion for Chatham Area

Hi,

Heading to Wellfleet for one night and then staying at the Wequassett celebrating our first anniversary. I'm planning on going to Blackfish for dinner in Truro for the first night and 28 Atlantic at the Wequassett for our last night splurge celebratory dinner. I need one other place around the Wequassett/Harwich/Chatham area. Any suggestions? I was thinking about Del Mar but i've never been. What's good and open this time of year?

Fun dinner on the town Saturday night – somewhere cool but not loud or rushed.. in a Village maybe..

look at Havana Alma de Cuba,, really fun cuban restaurant with great music and great sangria.. it's one of my favorites.. it's not too expensive either.. make sure you ask to sit in the front room (although the bongo music could be a bit loud) check it out.. http://www.havananyc.com

bachelorette party in Waikiki. Help!

Hi,

I'm planning on throwing a bachelorette party in Waikiki for my best friend. The Bride is local so I want to try to take her somewhere that's not too tourist. Somebody told me to check out the restaurants in the Aloha Tower? I'm open to all suggestions within the Waikiki area. We're going to have 9 girls. We want a casual fun place with good food and good drinks that not too pricey max $20 buck for an entree but rather have a place that serves Pupus or taps. Please help i'm clueless!

What to order at Alta and a nearby bar for after dinner.

Going to Alta tommorrow night. Have been there a bunch before but would love to get you recommendations for dishes. The brussles sprouts and fried goat cheese are my favorites.

I also need a fun bar nearby. Wanted to door a rooftop but doesn't have to be. Don't want anything too pretentious or pricey. Any suggestions??

Romantic Recession Friendly Restaurants?

I need restaurant for my anniversary and I want it to be somewhere fancy-ish and defintely romantic and I don't want to be spending $45 on entree. I'm looking for a restaurant that would have entrees in the $18-$25 range maybe. Any ideas?

Centro Vinoteca or The Harrison?

My sisters and I are getting together for dinner. 2 of us are big foodies and the other is semi-foodie but generally cares more about the atmosphere then the food ( a fight we have a lot with her!)

Anyways I've made reservations for dinner at both and I haven't been to either before. I just want some opinions on food and atmosphere at both places and which one you think we should go to.

Thanks :)

dinner with my sisters

we are big foodies but we also love fun atmosphere (i.e. fun music, good drinks, nice ambience) ..we're trying to avoid big restaurants looking for something little cozy and that's not impossible to get a reservation.. any good suggestions?

Thought I had the perfect place for my birthday but...

Hi!

I am trying to find the perfect place to celebrate my 24th birthday. I had wanted to go to the Casablanca Tea Room in Soho as I read a lot of good things about that place and the room looked awesome and it sounds really different and fun. However.. it just closed down! So now I have to think of somewhere else and I would love any suggestions you can offer. There will be a group of 8-9 of us. I really want somewhere that has a good selection of appetizers/ tapas but also a full menu. I think 50 bucks a person would be around what I am looking for. I would really love somewhere around the west village, soho, or meat packing but I'm open to anything. Last year I went to Havana Alma de Cuba and loved it, but I would like to try something new and a little different so maybe not cuban/spanish food..however.i'm not absolutly opposed to it as I really enjoy that type of cuisine. I really want nice/different atmosphere and I love music all kinds so it be great if you could suggest any place that might have live..but that's not a must have. The 3 most important things to me are the food, the atmosphere and the service.. okay i need to stop rambling on now.. Thanks in advance for your suggestions :)
