Thanks for the feedback.
What about my decision to skip Commander's Palace, is this a mistake?
OK, First time in New Orleans. Staying in FQ. No Car but love to walk a lot.
Don't really do breakfast (other than coffee) but these are our plans so far:
Other ideas for dinner are:
btw, Boucherie will be closed when we visit
Happy Hour Ideas:
Late Night Ideas:
Maybe for one night, instead of dinner, we should just do a happy hour/late night crawl?
Thanks for any help/ideas/suggestions
Just wanted to share what a fantastic experience we had at Saw's
We ate at the one near Sloss Furnaces. A pretty seedy neighborhood but a bustling brewery next door made it feel safer.
Parked on the street, went inside a very, very small room. No signage that we saw but noticed the outdoor picnic tables. No beer available but you could get your food to go and eat it at the brewery next door (they have a courtyard with tables out back).
We ordered the bbq with greens and grits, an oyster sandwich, deviled eggs and cole slaw.
Took a seat at an indoor table (one of maybe 4) and after a short wait, the cashier brought the food over.
Right away I was excited. It looked great! And..it tasted even better than it looked. BBQ shredded and sauced over cheesy, creamy grits and some braised greens-maybe collard and kale. Perfect combination of textures/flavor.
Oyster sandwich-nice soft bun, crispy iceberg, pickles, tangy sauce and some under-ripe tomatoes (only bad thing)-the oysters were lightly breaded, tender on the inside, little crispy on the outside.
One of the best things I have ever eaten.
I quickly ordered 2 more!
The deviled eggs weren't so great-a bit rubbery for my tastes but the rest-unbelievable good. Cole Slaw really vinegary but worked well with the bbq.
If I ever get near Birmingham again-I'm heading directly to Saw's!
Need a recommendation for a brunch/lunch spot Sunday...
Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Heard these places were good:
Any opinions or other ideas....
OK, I think I need to give more info. We are serious eaters. Not concerned about cost as much as quality. We don't live in the US but are from a small island. We don't have access to chain restaurants, oysters, crabs, any asian food and man, do we crave it. Love spice, seafood and seasonal produce we can't get (think local corn, melons, berries). Haven't visited Baltimore in about 10 years but really enjoyed it. We'll be traveling with 2 school aged children who eat what we do. We will have a car but plan on using taxis and the water taxi. By the way, this is a summer trip. Thanks for all your help.
Does anyone know who the chef is?
I'll be in Baltimore sight-seeing for a few days.
Planning on dining at:
Also, any spectacular Thai in the Inner Harbour area or nearby?
OK, here's what I've got it down to (unless some of you kind people talk me out of it)...
Lacroix for Brunch
I'm also going to try to duck into Sakura Mandarin for soup dumplings and if I'm near Dandelion, maybe some fish & chips.
One last thing, how are the burgers at Squareburger in Franklin Square? Any casual place near there that is better?
Yes, the one in Kennett Square.
I have the RTM worked in now for lunch.
Thanks everyone for all your contributions. Keep 'em comin'! The only problem is now I'm adding more places instead of reducing the number.
Think I almost have it figured out...
Any opinions on Federal Donuts Chicken? Also, I really want to try soup dumplings...Dim Sum Garden for those?
How about John's Roast Pork? better cheesesteak than Pat's?
I haven't been to Philly to eat in about a decade and there are a lot more options now. I'll post my actual itinerary when I get it all nailed down.
