La Campania, any difference?

On more thing.....I know that Chef Pepino has left La Campania to start DaVinci on Columbus Ave in Boston. I took a few girlfriends to La Campania a couple of weeks ago and didn't notice any real chances. I think the new chef is doing a great job. Has anyone noticed anything different?

Good Pierogies anyone?

I have a bet with my husband. I say there has GOT to be a restaurant around here that serves up pierogies that can put his Grandmother's to shame. He begs to differ. We haven't actually been to Cafe Polonia so perhaps the answer lies there. Anyone.....?

Wegmans in Boston?

where in upstate? I went to school there & LOVED the late night runs to Wegmans. We should be so lucky to have one around here.

Where can I find great bagels?

That's hilarious! But you're right. NY is the place to be. I LOVE all of the suggestions. I better get going...carb cravings.

Where can I find great bagels?

Exclusing the following: (and this isn't to say these are good or bad) Iggy's, Finagle, Panera, Au Bon Pain.....
You know, the real "home made's". Plumb, crusty on the outside, unique flavor combos. I want hole in the wall bakeries that make 'em on site.
Thanks!

Funky, cool lunch spots in Worcester?

The people who own Sole also own the 111 Chophouse (pretty hip for Worcester, everything from sushi to steak) AND they just opened Via, which I heard is good, not having been there myself.

Dinner TONIGHT!!!

MC, you're the best. Definately the answer I was hoping for. I haven't been keeping up with "the scene" lately, so I apologize for me not knowing other things you've put out there on T.W. I'm eatin' in up.

Dinner TONIGHT!!!

MC Slim...you got me. You're right. I'm just a bit excited to see a new place come into town that really IS trying to do "good" and present it in their own way. Give them a chance... they are doing what they love. (an no, I'm not related to them either.:)

Dinner TONIGHT!!!

Try T.W Food in Cambridge. Food is prepared by a classically trained chef. What comes out their kitchen surpasses anything that the Cambridge area has offered to date. They have a Vegetarian tasting menu as well. If you want to seriously appreciate flavors & ingredients then it's the place to go to.

Birthday cakes in Metrowest?

Definately check out www.babycakesandconfections.com. This woman used to own the Nashoba Brooks Bakery in W.Concord and now she does her own pastries. They are absolutely amazing and she's always doing custom cakes & cookies for special events. Even if you don't use her for a birthday cake, keep her in mind for catering too.

Small Plates - Harvard Sq

Depending on the event....and I found this out cuz I was thinking about doing the same thing there.... they can get a one-day liquor licence for private parties. I'd definately see what they could do
