I forgot to add the happy hour at Gaucho Grill in White Plains and Alex's Bar & Grille in North White Plains. Both draw a mature crowd...

Mid-May Maine vacation: recs please!

Thanks, so far. I have been wanting to get to Primo for a while. Maybe this time. As far as bobbert's question: no kids, all price points ok, lunch and/or dinner. I know there is a lot going on in Portland...

Mid-May Maine vacation: recs please!

We go up to Maine just about every year and this trip we are staying in Kennebunkport. What's good and new in food and dining in the greater area. We will have a car and don't mind traveling. All price ranges ok. Red's in Wiscasset is already in the mix. We are planning a visit to Portland and as far as Rockland. Thanks for your tips...

Do you eat where you shop?

There are quite a few markets that prepare food to eat right on the premises and provide seating areas just for that purpose: Fairway, Wegman's, Whole Foods, even Cosco. What are your favorites and where?

By the way, Dubrovnik just opened their outdoor deck for the season overlooking the herb garden. I also have enjoyed the new happy hours at Ernesto's Ristorante in White Plains...

Giant Dave & Buster's Opening in Pelham Manor!

The doors are now open to Dave & Buster's, but don't forget your ear plugs if you go...

White Plains Vietnamese

Maryld, where along Mamaroneck Ave. did you see the Banh Mi space? White Plains or Mamaroneck?

Rio Bravo Opens in Larchmont!

It's a free country, I know. But just curious, Sonnyno. What would prompt one to order a Margarita at Lusardi's, a good Italian restaurant?

Best place to buy starter herbs in greater Westchester...

With the harsh winter we had our herb garden lost a few renewables. Where do you like to shop for herbs in the area? Who has the best selection and price? Do you prefer starting from seed?

Mothers Day Brunch suggestions beside X and X20-lower westchester

It's not brunch, but an ad for newly renovated Ernesto's Ristorante in White Plains is offering a 3-course Mother's Day dinner all day for a reasonable $40. The regular menu too.
Wherever you go, make sure you reserve early. Also noticed that Coals Pizza in Bronxville and Port Chester will be serving their regular menu that day, and will accept reservations. They usually work on a first-come-first-served basis...

Rio Bravo Opens in Larchmont!

Stopped by last night to meet a friend and the place was loaded. I noticed that Benny's Burritos had closed on Chatsworth. There is still old faithful Tequila Sunrise operating on Larchmont Ave...

White Plains Vietnamese

Good news! Large or small it would be welcome as another Vietnamese food option in Westchester...

Giant Dave & Buster's Opening in Pelham Manor!

I was heading to Fairway Market in Pelham Manor and suddenly I saw big block letters announcing: 'Dave & Buster's'. It is located around the corner from Fairway. They were still working on the landscaping. I went inside and was given a quick tour by one of the staff: it is huge, 38,000 sq. ft. I believe, and loud. Restaurant section, games galore, sports bars with dozens of screens. And again, really loud.
Anyone familiar with this chain? I was told they are out of Texas. Is the food any good?

Best seafood in Baltimore Harbour?

Try Faidley's in the old Lexington Market for some remarkable Crab Cakes...

Pork Tenderloin sandwich in Westchester?

Tarry Market in Port Chester does a commendable job with pork tenderloin and decadent porchetta sandwiches...

Rio Bravo Opens in Larchmont!

After reading about it online we went to visit this Mexican newcomer twice, and while I was initially surprised at the offerings on the playful limited menu we agreed that their tacos were terrific. Anyone else tried it? They have a website...

Flames Steakhouse, Briarcliff, closed due to fire...

It was reported earlier this week on local Cable 12 that Flames Steakhouse in Briarcliff Manor closed due to a fire. Customers and staff had to be evacuated in the late evening...

Market Shoppers: Get out of the quick check out line. You have too many items...

This has been a remarkable discussion, but I have yet to hear from anyone who admits their mistake and intends to play by market rules...

Washington DC and VA burbs "ethnic" restaurants

There is a bustling Vietnamese enclave in Falls Church called Eden Center. Among my favorite eating places there is Huong Viet. Also, if you can get over to the Union Market on 6th Street in D.C. there will be a variety vendors and treats to explore. If you are able to travel, I might also suggest Faidley's in the old Lexington Market in Baltimore for their amazing crab cakes...all have websites.

What people do...too funny, Bob. I'll be thinking of these posts the next time I go to the market.

Market Shoppers: Get out of the quick check out line. You have too many items...

Market shopping for the holidays can be stressful enough with the crowds and all. I only needed a few supplementary groceries to fill in what I had. I get to the quick check out and find it clogged with loaded shopping carts, more than the 12 items or less posted on the sign.
Come on people, get on the line you belong, please...

Ogunguit / Perkins Cove / Gloucester

MC was always lovely with a fine view of the Marginal Way. Check out The Hurricane in Kennebunkport, too, and the dive bar vibe and good food at The Ramp on Cape Porpoise...
On your way there, make a stop at Stonewall Kitchen in York. The restaurant there is quite good...

Citarella to open in Greenwich mid-April...

After a number of delays, Citarella, the popular gourmet market with stores in Manhattan, will be opening a big location in Greenwich along Rt. 1. The store was always known for its fresh fish and seafood. Looks like Balducci's and Whole Foods will be the primary competition...

Based on your guidelines, I would try Pollo a la Brasa, Port Chester, and Coals Grilled Pizza, Port Chester and Bronxville...both are online.

Turkish Meze in Mamaroneck Permanently Closed?
