Williamstown, MA

Before traveling to Williamstown I searched Chowhound for some suggestions and found very little information. Two places we ate at there were, Hops and Vines for dinner and Tunnel City Coffee for breakfast. Hops and Vines has great food but is a tad expensive. I particularly recommend having a gin martini made with Greylock Ethereal Gin. Also try the Buffalo Crisps for a unique appetizer, and finish with the strawberry rhubarb crisp.
Tunnel City Coffee is the happening place for breakfast in town. Besides quality breakfast pastries they sell pint containers with cereal or granola that are designed for adding milk. A pretty cool idea which I have never seen before.

Take Out in Lowell, MA

I looked up China Star and the address I found was 369 Broadway. Then I saw China Star Lounge at 1733 Middlesex St. Did it move from Broadway to Middlesex ST?

Take Out in Lowell, MA

We will be attending the Trombone Shorty Concert in Lowell. In the past, we would take out food from the South East Asian, but they are no longer open. Looking for suggestions.

Dinner in Hyannis

Thanks, I have been there in the morning for pastries but I did not think of it for dinner.

Dinner in Hyannis

Looking for restaurants in Hyannis. On previous posts, most suggestions are for surrounding towns. We are meeting relatives and don't have very much time to be together. We want to spend time is a restaurant not in the car. Looking for something more upscale than a clam shack and less than a 5 star restaurant.

Lunch along RTS 89 and 93

We stopped at the Bedford Village Inn. We shared an Asian Salad and the Shrimp Wraps from the Sunday Brunch Menu. We ate on the patio. This was a nice finishing touch to our overnight trip to NH.

Lunch along RTS 89 and 93

Something interesting or excellent. As it is a Sunday I am sure many places will be closed. WE eat all types of food.

Dinner within a 15 Walk of Columbus Circle

Is it really made of pig's head? I am not a bizarre foods person!

Wineries near Geneva, NY

A few years ago we explored some wineries to the south and east of Geneva. We are thinking of taking a trip back to the Fingfer Lakes but staying near Geneva. Which are the best vineyards in that area?

Porter and Luke's

Thanks, TaTee. Have you ever tried the tuna stack appetizer?

Porter and Luke's

On a Tuesday night, I would like to eat in Metairie or Kenner. I have been to Drago's many times. I thought I would try Porter and Luke's. If I go there, what is their best dish. Or, if you think I should go elsewhere, what do you suggest?

Looking for CAN'T MISS places in NOLA. please help!!!

Don't miss Brigtsen's.
For a standard but very good breakfast try Betsy's Pancakes on Canal. Blue Dot Donuts is very popular.

Old Arabi Eats

I can't find a web site for them. I called their phone number and got a non descript answering machine. I have heard good things about the place. I will be in near that neighborhood around lunchtime. I was wondering if I should go there for lunch or dinner. My fear about lunch is they will be serving hamburgers and po-boys which is not what I want. If anyone knows their web site please pass it along to me.

Carvers v Pauls

Per a suggestion on Chowhound we went for Breakfast at Carvers. I went simple: eggs over very easy, bacon, home fries , pancakes. The eggs were overcooked by my standards but the bacon was plentiful, the home fries were delicious (they did not require ketchup), and the pancakes were yummy. My spouse tried a chorizo omelet which was disappointing. The next day we went to an old haunt, from my high school days, Pauls. The eggs over easy were cooked correctly (a plus for Pauls) but the home fries were trumped by Carvers.
I did not have bacon or pancakes so I can't compare them. I did have some great rye toast. My spouse was much happier with her order of eggs over easy.

Cafe Galleria in Lambertville Reporting Back

So we did dinner at Cafe Galleria. First, be aware it is BYOB. The salads and onion soup were great. I ordered the tuna which was good. My spouse tried a sesame chicken, shrimp dish that was just ok. Our dinner companions did not say too much about their entrees so you can take that however you want. If I were to return I would keep to the simpler items on the menu.

Reporting Back

Awhile ago I asked for suggestions in the West Village or Tribeca. My wife rejected all the suggestions and we went to Market Table on carmine Stwhich had been suggested by a friend. It was a great choice.
For a starter we shared a side of Charred Brussels Sprouts with bacon, sage and pickled apples. This dish was incredible. Then we each ordered the Flounder, served with parsnip puree, golden beets, and Brussels Sprouts. This dish was outstanding. We finished the night off by sharing a fine, fine, super fine blackberry and peach pie. I think it came with crema sorbet. We arrived at Market Table at 6 PM. By 7:30 when it was dark outside, it was very dark inside. For those of you, "of a certain age" make sure you have a flashlight with you after dark. You very well may need it to read the menu.

Which Should we Choose?

We will be coming in at the Port Authority. As we have not seen the most northern part of the High Line we will walk it to the southern end. So dinner can be in the Village or SoHo.

Which Should we Choose?

A friend told us about Dutch and Hudson Clearwater. She also mentioned Market Table. Market Table reviews were not great and the menu was not that interesting so I eliminated it. I think I saw AG Kitchen on TV.

A G Kitchen
Hudson Clearwater
The Dutch

Caffe Galleria looks good. It has turned out that we will be doing dinner and not lunch.
