Ft Pierce, Port St Lucie area local restaurants?

Thank you to Mrs Patmore and Sarge for rec's ! Just returned from Ft Pierce after enjoying the local food suggested by you.
Tiki Bar- food and service were very good. Boys were in Tiki Heaven! Gorgeous sunset over the marina was a bonus.
12A Buoy- Great seafood! The lobster mac n cheese was as good as promised- but waitress forgot to turn order in- and rec'd after entrée...
Chuck's Seafood on Hutchinson Island- Great seafood and service!
Carmella's in Stuart- Thank goodness food and service were excellent since sat on Fla turnpike for an hour since closed for wildfire that evening! The hostess couldn't have been nicer- taking us outside to redirect us back to Ft Pierce, after a wonderful dinner. They also had a really nice wine list- which was greatly appreciated after that drive there!!!
Sarge- thanks for concern re safety in Ft Pierce. We had no problems. But the heads up was appreciated.

Following college son's baseball team to Ft Pierce next week. Any recommendations for great local food? Traveling from frigid Pennsylvania, fresh seafood would be wonderful. Also, planning on taking a carload of the boys out to dinner a night or two as well. any ideas for hungry 19-20 year olds ( who also have discerning palates)? Can't wait to see sunshine and eat great!

Is Something Else in the same alley as Green Goddess? I'm heading to NOLA in 2 weeks and would love to try a new (to me) breakfast spot.

St Charles streetcar line dinner rec's

We are staying near the FQ. I love the idea of stopping at Columns Hotel for a cocktail before dinner! And, I do think I need to splurge and take them to Commander's for dinner. It would really be a wonderful evening for us to remember. Thanks!

St Charles streetcar line dinner rec's

Traveling to NOLA in November with mother and mother-in-law ( to satisfy m-i-l's bucket list!). Since walking will be an issue for the 2 80-somethings, I thought a Saturday evening ride on the St Charles streetcar for dinner would be a good option for us. Of course Commander's Palace is a great high-end choice, but any other suggestions?

Suggested time of arrival at Green Goddess

Thanks. Really looking forward to eating there. Maybe will just stop on way from airport. We usually just wing it the first night in town.

Suggested time of arrival at Green Goddess

Will be arriving in NOLA on a Thursday mid afternoon. Planning for Green Goddess as first dinner of this trip. What is the suggested time of arrival for party of 2? I was thinking of stopping there before checking into hotel to get names on dinner list. Good idea? Not necessary? Also, would love to hear favorite foods to order!

Commander's Palace or Gautreaus?

After reading your reply and previous postings, think I'll be making reservations at CP. Thanks!

Commander's Palace or Gautreaus?

Planning food experience for Nola, in February- post Mardi Gras. Will be in town Thurs - Sunday. Hope to get into Green Goddess Thurs evening as soon as plane touches down. Brigsten's is on wishlist for Friday. Not sure about Saturday dinner. Contemplating CP, it's been several years and visits to NOLA that we have dined at CP, or should we try Gautreaus?

Charlottesville sandwich takeout. Post camp dinner.

Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions. Just got back from Charlottesville. What a great city, university and dining options! Actually made it to several of your suggestions- Bodo's Bagels, Little John's, Food of All Nations, and Baja Beans (great marg's!!!). Boys were happy and full (for a while anyway!). Moms happy (esp after the marg's) when the boys are happy!

Colorado Springs rehearsal dinner alternate

Going to a wedding in Colorado Springs this week. Since I'm not invited to the rehearsal dinner (!) , looking for alternate dinner plans for myself and niece (legal drinking age) . Good food, reasonably priced. I've been to Co Springs, but niece hasn't, so a nice place with a "local feel" would be great! Or just great food that shouldn't be missed?
