One night in NYC FiDi.

Thanks for the SHO recommendation. I might be staying another night and was wondering if there's something around Washington square that would be good for one.
Thanks.

One night in NYC FiDi.

When I travel by myself I like eating at the bar. Thinking of Luma. Any other spots that are good solo options?
Thanks.

Capo's Las Vegas?

Well Capo's does sound like a fun time and that's half of the experience for us.
Thanks for your help!

Capo's Las Vegas?

Thanks for the feedback. I think I would be going with 9 guys so I'm wondering if it's suited for a large party.
Been to any other Italian spots that you liked?

Indian food in Toronto

Thanks for these Suresh. I think we would like something for dinner so a bit more upscale. Do any of the ones you mentioned stand out.
Thanks!

Indian food in Toronto

Looking for good Indian food in Toronto. Any suggestions? I heard it's a good city for this type of food.

Panevino, Ventano's or Ferraro's in Vegas?

Thanks for the suggestions! I actually made a reservation at Panevino at their chefs table, but I might change.
I was looking up Piero's and there seems to be more than one. Can you let me know which one has the A room?
Thanks again.

Panevino, Ventano's or Ferraro's in Vegas?

I have a reservation at Ferraro's but now I'm thinking Panevino or Ventano's might be the way to go. Just hearing good and not so good about Ferraro's.
Thoughts?

Family style / Chefs table in vegas

Going to Vegas with 8 guys and was wondering if you could give me some help.
Looking for a spot in Vegas that might serve a nice Italian meal family style, Buca not included. We use to go to the old Venetian (sad) and they would order for us.

Also wondering if there are any spots that have a nice Chefs table experience?
Thanks!

Long weekend in Toronto

Good tip. Thanks.
Just wondering if it would be worth spending the entire at the Pacific Mall.

Long weekend in Toronto

These spots look very nice.
Thanks!

Long weekend in Toronto

We don't have a car but I was wondering if mass transit or a cab would work? Would it be a pricey cab ride?
I actually heard from a coworker that the Pacific Mall was a place to check out.
Thanks.

I agree with you on all of the above.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll need to try the poutine.

The Return Of......My Upcoming Las Vegas Vacation

I had one meal at the BB and thought it was OK. I'm going to Vegas with 8 guys and staying at M. Bay so it might be a fall back.
That said, we go to N9Ne every year and just have the best time. Steaks are good but the atmosphere is as good.

Great choices here! Thanks.

When we were in Paris we had some outstanding street Greek food. Do you recommend any great Greek spots? I

See response to Gary.
Thanks!

Thanks for all your input. I think we'll be staying downtown at either the King Edward or the Westin. To better define what we like:
1. We don't mind spending the money on a meal that's worth it.
2. We love down home diner food as well as low lit swank.
3. We try to stay away from places that like to trick out the plate and charge you an arm and a leg.
4. We prefer a place to be fun but not crazy noisy.
5. We love Asian, Indian and Italian food, but up for a new adventure. We live in Minneapolis where it's hard to find great old school Italian so we trend towards that when we travel.
6. Good value.
7. We like the fun neighborhoods that have variety.

The Markets that you mentioned sound great! We'll for sure hit those. We really don't have anything like that in Mpls.

Long weekend in Toronto

Looking for some restaurant ideas for my pregnant wife and me. Never been to this city before and we're really looking forward to it. We are doing 3 days and 3 nights so breakfast lunch and dinner ideas would be appreciated. We would like to hit some of the interesting parts of town but we're open to just about anything.
Is there a good dim sum spot?
Do they do Poutine in Toronto?

Festive and fun dinner spots in Vegas

I'm looking for a fun environment to have dinner with a group in sin city. We do the Nine which is great, but we're looking for something new that's not too stuffy and that's a good time.
Thanks.

Vegas best food

I haven't heard of Ventano's. Sounds like a winner.
Any spots that do family style italian?

Vegas best food

The well made cocktails might push us towards Nora's. I'll be with a group looking for something good to wet the whistle.

Vegas best food

I'm making my annual pilgrimage to vegas with 8 buddies and once again I'm in charge of picking the restaurants. We've eaten at some pretty good restaurants but we're always looking for a new find. We do Nine at the Palm every year because the guys like the scene. We use to love going to the old Venetian Italian restaurant off the strip, but that closed. An old fun Italian spot would be fun. Have been to Batista's I think it's ok at best. I hear Casa Di Amore and Ferraro's are pretty good. Any comments or suggestions?
