Fornovo di Taro

Went to a restaurant there...Baraccone. Excellent...can't seem to find it now...south of Parma. Is it closed? We had such a great meal there.

Sports Bars Help.

What about for watching the Super Bowl? Do you need to reserve a table somewhere for a group of 6? What about just at a hotel bar in the French quarter??

Recommendations - Whirlwind Rome / Florence / Venice Food Tour

What restaurant do you think would have a lot of these seafood items on their menu..we go to the market to look but then can't seem to find them on menus.

Dish recommendations at Arnauds, Herbsaint, Coquette, R'evolution and others please!! (Researched)

At Cochon Butcher have the Buckboard Bacon sandwich....delicious....also, love the Shrimp PoBoy at Parkway...We take the streetcar up and walk over...easy walk..then we have walked from there to City Park.

Dinner hopping

Would we be OK to hop around for our dinner....Herbsaint for the spaghetti with guanciale and then an appetizer or 2 at Emerils and then see how we feel? I know we can just stop in to Emerils and eat at the bar...can we do that at Herbsaint?

Recommendations for brunch/lunch/dinner places (researched!!)

Don't miss Cochon Butcher....alot of interesting lunch choices. Also, our favorite for a Po'Boy is Parkway but you will need to take the Canal Street streetcar up to it. We loved GWfinns

Have been to NOLA several times...looking to do some new places....Root, Sylvain, Boucherie and Mahoneys for our Po'Boy fix...We have reservations for GWFins and may stop in to Emerils for a favorite item or 2....

Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Shanghai, Fuchsia Dunlop and Wild China

might be a bit boring but for some in our traveling group who are not quite as adventurous as us, it would be a good choice....what is the difference between upstairs and downstairs?

Emeril's New Orleans or NOLA

Ask for a table at GW Fins on the perimeter of the room...that is where we had a table and it was less noisy.

Emeril's New Orleans or NOLA

Though I enjoyed my meals in both locations, I have to say I would lean towards NOLA. I found Emerils to be "too busy"...too much commotion.....too many waiters, busboys, etc...I started getting dizzy if I watched what was going on around me. Loved NOLAs shrimp and grits, disappointed in Emerils Drum, but loved the pasta with smoked mushrooms and the coconut custard pie.

herbsaint or cochon

We had our Sunday lunch and another lunch at Cochon Butcher. We really enjoyed it. The buckboard bacon, cheese and collards sandwich was excellent as well as the duck pastrami sliders and the brussel sprouts. We were there last week and keep talking about when we can go back.
