Thanks. Definitely need to visit LOS! I wasn't sure about Hugo's Cellar. It looked so old school in the photos. What makes it unique? Thanks!

Okay, thanks. We are flexible on the price. If it's more than $150 pp, that's okay. What is the average at Twist pp with cocktails and/or wine?

Best romantic bar and best romantic restaurant in Vegas?

What are the best romantic bars and best romantic restaurants in Las Vegas? It's okay if they're on or off the strip. I'll be visiting in January and I'd like to pin down at least a couple of spots where we will be dining/drinking. I've looked at everything from the Eiffel restaurant, to Picasso, to Le Cirque, to Joel Rubuchon, Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare and Guy Savoy. It's just hard to tell if we'd snag a great table at Picasso (outdoor view) or if we'd be stuck indoors, etc. Where is a sure thing for great view (if that is what makes a particular restaurant romantic), etc?

Also sidenote, is Lotus of Siam the best Thai in town? I know it's not a romantic setting, but want to sample some truly great Thai while I'm in Vegas.

As for types of food, I'm open to any cuisine. And as for price points, it can be up to $150 per person for dinner, excluding gratuity.

Thanks so much!

Late night dining in downtown?

I'll be finishing up at a conference around 10:30 on Tuesday night. Is there anywhere near the Seattle Sheraton (1400 6th Ave) that would be good for appetizers and drinks?

Marination Ma Kai for a Sunday lunch?

I'm visiting Seattle and my brother, who used to live there, recommended taking the high speed ferry to Marination Ma Kai for the city skyline views and then to have lunch on the waterfront. Is this the best option for such a lunch, or do you have other recommendations? It's for this coming Sunday and the weather is supposed to be fantastic.

Downtown Seattle wineries, tasting rooms and wine bars?

I love wine (who doesn't?!) and I'd like to visit a Seattle winery while I'm in town. I don't have time to go more than 20 minutes out of downtown, however. So what would be my best choices for wineries and/or tasting rooms? I see The Tasting Room is at Pike Place Market. Is that a good one?

I'm staying at the Sheraton Seattle on 6th Avenue, for a reference point. I have a conference from Monday-Thursday, so Sunday will be my only day to really explore. Altho I could squeeze in a tasting room after the conference in the evenings. Or perhaps a wine bar would be best, where we could eat, too. Thanks!

Sunday brunch at noon around a great neighborhood or Pike's Place?

I'll be arriving Sunday morning from out of town. My hotel is on 6th Avenue downtown. Where would be a good place to go for a brunch around noon? I'm open to touring a great neighborhood or heading down to Pike's Place Market. I have a friend with me. She's not a foodie, but I am.

Toulouse Petit - any other restaurants a visitor should try?

I'll be in Seattle for business from Sun-Thurs, and I'm not very familiar with the city. Staying downtown, no car, but easy access to taxis and public transportation. I've made reservations at Toulouse Petit, but nowhere else. Where do you recommend?

I'd like to find great sushi, a top seafood restaurant and perhaps something Thai, or even a fantastic bistro with a nice wine list.

Any suggestions? There are two of us traveling and we're okay waiting up to 30 minutes for a table, but prefer reservations.

I would like at least one restaurant to have a view of the water, as per my travel companion's request.

Pricing could be up to $75 a person with tax/tip, or a little over if necessary.

Best contemporary Mexican for Sat. night dinner for 4?

For the record, we went to Toloache Midtown. I loved it (had shrimp on crispy tortilla) and loved the smoky guac, but my companions weren't as crazy about it (chiptole chicken - two ordered it and deemed it bland.) The chicken enchiladas another friend ordered was a win, however. Had the peach margarita with thai basil. Liked it.

Best Wednesday pre-theater dinner near W. 45th St.?

Ended up with last-minute tickets to Bernard B Jacobs Theatre for tomorrow night. Showtime is 8 p.m. Where is the best pre-theater dinner and what time should I reserve for? Would have to be a place with day-before reservations an option. We like everything foodwise. Price isn't important. We're visiting from out-of-town. Thanks!

Thanks! I'll check out Empellon. I would love to try ABC Cocina, have heard great things, but the risk of a long wait makes me wary.

What about El Toro Blanco or Toloache Midtown? Or Hecho en Dumbo? They have times between 7 and 8 p.m. available.

Best contemporary Mexican for Sat. night dinner for 4?

I'm visiting NYC for the first time since 2009. Looking very forward to it. We just scheduled dinner with two NJ friends who are coming in to meet us at our Midtown West hotel (the W on Lexington). Where would you recommend we go for contemporary (or even sit-down traditional) Mexican food? I used to live in Los Angeles and Phoenix, and the great Mexican food in those cities spoiled me. I live in Kentucky now, and there is absolutely no decent Mexican food. Where would you guys suggest, where we could still get reservations or at least have either a fun wait, with margaritas, or a minimal wait, for a non-reserved table for this Saturday night? We want to dine around 7:30. Thanks!

Half-price wine bottles on Mon-Wed nights?

I've seen a couple of restaurants mentioned that do half-price wine bottles on Mon, Tues or Wed nights. Does anyone have any suggestions of good places to go with such an option? Any part of Manhattan is fine. Any type of food. Any price. Just want the food to be good.

Curious what the best rooftop bars are in Manhattan. I'm visiting in July and staying in Midtown East.

Dinner spot after day touring statue liberty and 9/11 memorial

thanks for the suggestions. after booking our tickets for the memorial and the statue of liberty, I had to flip things around. We'll be visiting the memorial in the morning, and then the statue of liberty in the afternoon, so we'll be in battery park at dinner time. I know it's very close to the memorial, but wanted to mention it in case there was somewhere else you felt we should go in that immediate area.

Dinner spot after day touring statue liberty and 9/11 memorial

On a Monday, we'll be visiting the statue of liberty and 9/11 memorial. what's a good place for dinner in the area surrounding the memorial? It's for two people, we'll be dressed casually from our day of sightseeing. We like all types of food and we won't want to have to wait more than 20 minutes for a table, reservations preferred.

Best weekend brunch/lunch spot around Central Park south?

I'll be visiting Manhattan in July. Where would be the best place for a Saturday brunch or lunch for two people? I prefer a spot with al fresco dining or at least a gorgeous view of the park. Price doesn't matter. It should take reservations, however. I don't like to wait for tables. Thanks!
