i definitely will, i'm just very excited and enjoy hearing about the restaurant scene in other cities. i have a running list of restaurants that are contenders for our limited dinner spots, and i'll check back in august before i make my reservations.

5 days in London - where to go for some great meals?

we're staying in the mayfair area, right on the edge of regent's park, but we are willing to travel for great food.

thank you for your suggestions!

i LOVE that idea! we'll be leaving that evening on the red eye, so that sounds like perfect way to end our trip. would you recommend any area in specific for a picnic?

5 days in London - where to go for some great meals?

hi,
my boyfriend and i are planning a 5 day trip to london in the beginning of may. i have been several times before but this will be his first trip. i would love for him to experience something more beyond the tourist-y things, and get a full and well-rounded experience of all the ethnic cuisine that london has to offer.

i'm looking for affordable and quick lunch options (no pret if i can help it - too much money for not that great food). for dinner, we could do one really special dinner, and the other ones i would like to try some great pubs, maybe some sushi, and definitely thai and indian.

we're game for just about anything, and we are so excited to make this trip a really memorable one!
thanks in advance for your help!!

mother/daughter trip to SF - help me make this as stress-free as possible!

hi,
i'm planning four day trip to sf for my mother and i - she turns 60 the same year i turn 30, so we are celebrating our oldness. :) we have found a cute b&b in pacific heights, and we are excited to visit the city (we have both been on separate occassions).

however, i am stressed about finding restaurants that will please both of us. i live in nyc, and i love eating out and trying new food. my mother is not as adventurous as i am, but at the same time, she wants to have that great experience of knowing that you're in a great restaurant. she's more of a chicken/beef person and i love to try pretty much anything. seafood is also an fairly open option for us.

so far on my list i have zuni cafe, the slanted door, flour + water and tartine bakery. please help me come up with a few more places - i'd like to make dinner reservations ahead of time so we're not wandering around at 7 pm, and starting to get crabby from lack of food.

thank you in advance for your help - i want to make this trip a success, and i think some great meals will really add to the special-ness of the trip.
