Thanks! I loved Founding Farmers - that was the first place I thought of - but haven't been in a few years and the most recent reviews are dreadful. Have you been recently?

fun DC restaurant for English guests

I am an American living in London. In midJuly, I will travel to DC with a number of English co-workers for a meeting. I need to plan a fun night out (nice restaurant and drinks) for a small group (8-10). Any recommendations for something American - in all the best ways :)

Thank you!

Candy canes in NW London?

The Camden Whole Foods had sold out. An amazing worker there called all of the London WFs for me - Stoke was the only store with candy canes in stock. Sadly, I did not have time to make all the way there yesterday.

By a stroke of luck, an American friend had a couple of extras last night and shared them. So, the boys got their Christmas miracle.

Whole Foods has won my undying loyalty for their willingness to help a desperate mom!

Thank you to everyone for the replies! Next year, I am buying them in early December ...

Merry Christmas!!

Candy canes in NW London?

Last minute (desperate) request for help --

Does anyone know where I can find candy canes in NW London (preferably belsize or hampstead)?

When my boys wake up on Christmas morning, a candy cane hanging on their bed signals that Santa has visited in the night. This is our first Christmas in London and I cannot find candy canes anywhere! They have been talking about that magic moment all week so I would love to find them somewhere if possible ...

I have looked at all of the major groceries - Tesco, several Sainsburys, Waitrose, M & S, etc.

Thank you from me and 2 little boys who still believe!!!

magazine street restaurant for a large party

Am visiting NO in November with a large group (15-16 people). We specifically want to do dinner on Magazine Street on a Friday night. Any suggestions for a place with excellent food that we won't overwhelm with a group of that size? We're flexible on the type of food but want it to be good. Thanks!

rec for private chef?

My husband and I are travelling to New Orleans in November with 12-14 friends. We are renting a large house in the Garden District and would like to do a dinner party with a private chef one night.

Can anyone recommend someone that could come to the house to prepare a dinner party? We'd like someone that can bring delicious food with a strong NO influence.

Thanks in advance!

place to go for birthday cake (& sushi rec nearby if you have one)

While we are in DC next week, my 5 year old turns 6. Looking for a recommendation for a good place to sit down for fabulous cake - coffee shop, tea shop, bakery with seating, anything ...

Also, his fave food is sushi (his foodie mom is so proud) so if you also have a sushi rec near the cake place, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks!
