Well, in checking over my email, "The Point" is open, and it's the Beach Club which closes on Nov. 1. Thanks, now we have two nice restaurants to visit.

We're thinking of going into Hamilton on Saturday for shopping and lunch. Suggestions for a nice, casual lunch in town, anyone?

Cheers!

I am spending a long weekend at TP 11/12-15 with my husband, brother and his wife for my 50th birthday. My husband wanted to arrange a private dinner at The Point but were told that it will be closed as of Nov. 1. Would it be worth the $$$ without the executive chef in house? My brother is quite the food snob (lovingly), so we need really good food.

I've seen Rustico, but Italian in Bermuda doesn't do it for me. Beau Rivage sounds better. Is it a long way from TP? I had wanted to stay in the hotel the entire weekend, but since we are arriving out of season, perhaps we will need to venture out. I just don't want to spend a lot of time--four of us jammed--in a cab!

Regardless, I would love one "fancy" dinner, so any suggestions would be fantastic! Thanks so much.

Great Steak Dinner in Knoxville?

Looking to treat our son to a nice steak dinner in Knoxville for his 21st birthday. Not really looking for Ruth's Chris-type chain. Would like a nice restaurant though, not too casual. Have read reviews, good and not-so-good, on Regas. Looks ok, but I just don't know. Suggestions?

Homey/Family Restaurant for After Funeral

I haven't lived in DC for several years and a friend asked me for suggestions for a local restaurant, DC or No. VA. She hasn't lived in DC in over 20 years. Her mother-in-law is expected to pass away soon and she is trying to get plans underway for a gathering after the funeral (Arlington Cemetery).

She is looking for a very nice, homey and happy restaurant with excellent food for about 20 close family and friends. Price is not an issue.

All I could think of is Nora's or Maggiono's. Any suggestions for her?

Thanks so much.

Best thin crust pizza in the DC area

I am so HAPPY to hear Pizza Pantry in Arlington is back!! If you like thin crust, you'll love this. The larger is square and the crust is almost pastry like. You'll love it! I can't wait to get back up there and get me a pizza!!!

Blais at Home in Atlanta

Would highly recommend Home. (I was amazed the concierge at the Westin didn't know of it! (Tsk tsk) A friend and I ate there Monday night. After arriving an hour later than our reservation because of family matter (we did call to let them know), they greeted us with smiles and hoped our evening would be better now that we arrived. Wonderful hostess. The biscuits were served with butter, pepper jelly and pickled okra. What a twist on such a bland veggie. It was great! The Silken Corn Soup with GA shrimp toast was delish, to say the least. The shrimp and grits with andouille was spectacular. My friend had the fried chicken with macaroni and cheese. (Note: the mac and cheese had a cauliflower cream sauce. I loved it, my friend wasn't so pleased.) Side dishes of mashed potatoes, carrots, turnips and greens were an added bonus. I have never tasted such delicious greens in all my day (and my mom is a Georgia Peach). I insisted sharing a dessert. We chose to share the pecan cake with sweet tea ice cream! The cake was similar to a warm coffee cake, the ice cream was wonderful. Chef Blais came by our table for a short chat which was the icing on the cake. What a great guy. Bravo!

Atlanta--Near CNN (or not)

Thank you all very much for your suggestions. My friend and I had lunch at South City Kitchen on Cresent for lunch. Sooooooo good. Had the turkey sandwich--to die for. My gf had the chicken salad--another goodie. We were so full (cornbread muffins to start) that we couldn't fit in desert. Such a pitty as they had all kinds of delectables including banana pudding!! So sorry I had to miss that!
We made it to Richard Blais' Home for dinner. Another fabulous meal. The Silken Corn Soup with GA shrimp was delish, to say the least. The shrimp and grits with andouille was spectacular. Side dishes of mashed potatoes, carrots, turnips and greens were an added bonus. I have never tasted such delicious greens in all my day (and my mom is a Georgia Peach). Since we didn't have dessert at lunch, I insisted for dinner. We chose to share the pecan cake with sweet tea ice cream! Bravo. Chef Blais came by our table for a short chat which was the icing on the cake. What a great guy.
Thank you all again for your suggestions. They were perfect!

Tapas in Miami?

Yes, I found that after doing a little research. With that said though, I've found that sometimes the posts I pull up can be over five years old! Perhaps it's because I'm a newby and not quite sure if I am "searching" correctly; but I have gotten into trouble with an outdated post in the past where I did some heavy schlepping in NYC to find the best Italian pastires only to find the store went out of business. My fault, I know and I do know better now. But yes, much easier than posting anew. Thanks everyone.

6 meals in Mobile, AL

1. Felix's Fish Camp (http://www.felixsfishcamp.com/mobile-...) on the Battleship Causeway. Get there early tho! Yum. (Don't miss the turtle (my fav) or crab soups!) Shrimp and grits are to die for.
2. Wintzell's Oyster House (http://www.wintzellsoysterhouse.com/). Never been to the one in Mobile, but the one in Fairhope is fun. Your daughter will like it too. (Good desserts!
)3. Dew Drop Inn (http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overv...) Never been but I really need to. It looks so disgustingly good (hamburger/hotdog joint).
Unless you're going into Fairhope or Gulf Shores, that's all I have. I'm sure you will stumble upon many great places! Enjoy.

Atlanta--Near CNN (or not)

Meeting an old friend in Altanta. She's staying at the Omni by CNN, me at the Westin on Peachtree. I'd love to find a great Southern (nouveau is fine) restaurant to go to, have some drinks, good southern meal and relax and catch up. It doesn't have to be walking distance as I will be driving in from Nashville and will have wheels. Lunch too if anyone has ideas??
Thanks.

Re: Best Italian Bakery

UPDATE: Pozzo's Bakery looks to be closed! (I'm new here and didn't mind looking at the dates of these posts and schlepped all the way over to Pozzo's only to find it closed up. Booo hisss.) Moral of story--call first!

Hoboken pastry shops, Giorgio's, Carlo's, Riviera, etc.

When in the area, we always buy several trays of Italian cookies from Carlo's and make a special trip in from the city to get them. Normally though, only one tray makes it home. There's also a pizza place on the corner of Washington and ?. Perfect "NY" pizza.
