Anyone ever show up at a BYOB with decanted wine?

Had no issues, just put it back in the bottle and took it to the restaurant. Went to Catherines in Unionville, was decent but could have been so much better with some seasoning and maybe some comfy chairs!

Drive-worthy Farmer's Markets?

My 2 cents, we are stuck on the east coast and Farmers Market options are limited. It sucks but what are you going to do. In Chester county West Chester Growers seems to have the most variety though it's still small compared to SF,LA etc. Pete's is nice but I feel crazy overpriced...My suggestion would be to try and hit up local farms or CSA's...

Heading to South Beach in August

Need a few can't miss restaurants. Nothing stuffy, just a fun scene with great food and great wine lists!

Thanks!

Anniversary dinner--Birchrunville, Henry's, or Funky Lil Kitchen--or other

Had a great meal at Birchrunville recently. Best your going to get in the burbs. I think they have a chefs tasting menu on Tuesdays that usually has availability...

Fresh Morels in Chester County??

Apparently I'm in the mushroom capital of the world...
Where can I find fresh morels other than whole foods??

Serious Question...Is Pittsburgh limited to Diners Drive-ins and Dives or are there a few good restaurants?

This thread is a peffect example of what's wrong with east coast attitudes. I just moved to philly from the bay area and it's a tough transition for sure with regards to the food scene. With that said this petty bickering b/w Philly and burg is pathetic!! The initial post is a little flamey, but most cities would be excited to show you what you are missing. Instead we get Eagles can't win a superbowl and Crosby is a *****

With that said anyone have recommendations for Monroeville? It is tough to get away from chain restaurants out here.

Desperate in DownIngtown

Thank you everyone! Appreciate all the feedback, my high end comment was probably a bit misplaced, just looking for quality establishments with fresh ingredients.

Desperate in DownIngtown

Hi all, just moved to Downingtown, Pa from Bay Area. Trying to get my bearings, looks like high end restaurants are limited. Where should I be looking? Yelp seems worthless, is West Chester or Kennett Square my best bet? Just looking for some general ideas, butcher shops, cheese shops, coffee shops etc. Thx!!
