Best Beer List in Manhattan...

Agree... RNH is the best beer bar in Manhattan I think. I also agree that if someone is looking for a nice dinner, RNH is a bar, not a restaurant with a good beer list, but I do think the food at RNH is better than the typical Irish pub/sports bar food at most other bars around the city! Mmmm..... reuben....

Best Beer Bars in Portland (and other can't miss places!)

Thanks, JillO, very helpful!

Best Beer Bars in Portland (and other can't miss places!)

Hi everyone,

A group of friends and I will be coming to Portland in a few weeks and we would love to know where the best bars are to sample local craft beers that are harder to find on the East Coast. Based on some research, it looks like places such as Apex, Bailey's Taproom, Belmont Station, Green Dragon, Horse Brass Pub and Saraveza are popular, but if there are any others, we would definitely appreciate your insight (and opinions about those listed above). We only have 3 days in town to eat and drink so our time is somewhat limited! :)

I'll be searching around for some can't-miss restaurants and food carts as well, but if there are any you feel really strongly about, I would appreciate the info!

Thanks in advance everyone.

Best Burgers and Mexican Food in Midtown?

Try Anejo in Hells Kitchen for Mexican!

For burgers, I agree with the Five Napkin Burger rec. Or if you are willing to walk a little bit, try Rare.

Meatball Factory - eh at best

100% agree. Meatballs in general are good, so your meal will be good, but Meatball Factory is nothing special and definitely not a "destination."

Dubrovnik and Split in August

When in Dubrovnik, you MUST go to Buza, a breathtaking bar carved out of a cliff overlooking the sea.

One Night in Paris - 6th - Dark & Good Food

Go to La Quincave for wine and an unbelievable cheese plate before dinner!

Need one more Paris restaurant - help please

You may also consider Neva Cuisine... It was our favorite restaurant in Paris when we were there in May (more impressive than Chez L'Ami Jean, in my humble opinion). It fits the bill of being more contemporary than traditional, and is very delicious with great service as well.

Where to eat on a short trip to Maryland (Easton and Baltimore)

Brewers Art in Baltimore is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. A great non-seafood option in Baltimore!

Friends from NYC, outdoor lunch Baltimore

It's not outdoors, but Brewers Art is a great place with delicious food and drinks.... Might be a good idea if the weather doesn't cooperate or you decide indoors (for deliciousness) is ok!

Looking for a wedding cake that tastes amazing.

We got our wedding cake from Fancy Cakes by Leslie in Bethesda and it was exactly as you describe! So delicious and not "wedding cakey" at all but still beautiful.

Downtown anniversary dinner w/ lively atmosphere?

I would have drinks at Ward III in Tribeca and dinner closeby at Locanda Verde. The drinks at Ward III are phenomenal!

Fun, hip place for Friday dinner near Madison Square Park and the Ace Hotel?

Pipa for tapas is also in the area and really delicious if you want something like that.

You could also head to Eataly and eat in one of the restaurants there... in fact, you should at least walk through Eataly at some point during your trip!

20 adults - around East 23rd places to eat for 2 hours

I agree that Riverpark would be great. You also might consider Bistro Lamazou on 3rd Avenue between 25th and 26th or 'inoteca on 24th and 3rd, though the latter can get loud-ish sometimes.

Pasta with Chickpeas ?

I had a wonderful pasta with chickpea dish recently at Riverpark. They change their menu sometimes, but it's worth a look!

Rehearsal Dinner in Dec.

You might want to consider Brooklyn Winery... It could be perfect. They have rooms for rent and reasonable prices. I think it would be worth it to call and ask!

red sauce Italian near the Theater District- Trattoria Trecolori, Puttanesca or somewhere else?

Amarone on 9th is really great as well. Better than Trecolori for me.

One day in Manhattan - HELP!

You can get delicious deli food and pizza relatively close to the public library and GCT.

Try Second Avenue Deli on 33rd between 3rd and Lex (yum).

And for pizza, Vezzo on 31st and Lex.

Good Bar with Craft Beer and Good Food to Watch the Ranger Game Tonight

Seems like you already made up your mind, but for next time, worth noting that the food at Rattle is GREAT. Really great actually and not just for bar food. The Reuben is phenomenal.

Brussels recommendations

Mussels will not be in season and many restaurants therefore will not serve them. But as other commenters have noted, some restaurants may source from elsewhere. See my recap of Brussels on my blog: http://noodlelust.com/

I would suggest eating around the Saint Catherine area rather than around the Grand Place.

Need lunch recommendations in Murray Hill

I have to agree on this one. I am a huge Ravagh fan. Best kebobs and hummus in the city that I have tried and the portions are great.

What is THE BEST fine dining Latino restaurant in NYC?

I highly recommend both Rayuela and Macondo. Especially for brunch. I have also been to La Mar, which is very delicious upscale Peruvian. For arguably more delicious, but less upscale, Peruvian, I would recommend Pio Pio.
