Special occasion restaurants near Lafayette, Indiana

Bistro 501 - Downtown Lafayette
La Scala - Downtown Lafayette - not real "uscale" but good Italian
McGraws - just outside West Lafayette beside the river - my favorite.

casual restaurants or bars close to midway airport

I'll picking up a friend at Midway. I'd like to stop at a restaurant or bar nearby and have him call me when he lands, so I can drive over and pick him up without having to park at the airport. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Casual such spots along I-75 in Florida

In a couple of weeks I'll be driving along I-75 on my way to Ft. Myers. Looking for casual lunch spots reasonably close to I-75. Not particular about the type of food. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Bread and Bagels Ft. Myers

I visit Sanibel each year. Latest info about the Bean suggests that it's changed hands and the food and service has gone down hill. Jerry's supermarket on Sanibel has great bagels and other baked goods. Their breads are just ok. When I visit, I usually stop at the Publix at Winkler and Summerlin for crusty bread. Good luck.

sediment

The other night while dining with my wife at an Italian resturant - we ordered a medium priced bottle of red wine. When my wife finished her first glass, there was a great deal of sediment at the bottom of her glass. I was somewhat taken aback - but the waitress assured my that finding sediment was not uncommon. Is this true? Shoud I have demanded another glass or bottle? Your comments are appreciated.

Mary's Cafe - 215 East Grand Ave.

Red Dragon: I have been to Mary's many times - always for an early breakfast. Mary's is somewhat of a diner. Good breakfast food, good service, and relatively inexpensive for "just off of Michigan Avenue." Mary's attracts construction workers, policemen, and tourists who wander in. If your looking for a more expensive lunch -
try Volare which is several doors west of Mary's.

Replacement for Phil Smidt's Perch?

Warthog:

Try Teibel's restaurant on the corner of US 30 and US 41 in Schererville. They have been serving perch dinners for many years.

Sanibel dinner recommendations for 40th birthday

Visited Sanibel in October. Had great meals at Jacaranda and Ellingtons. Ellingtons offers jazz which is an added feature to dinner. Have fun!

Sanibel Island?

Diva: For a casual breakfast try the Lighthouse Cafe. After you cross the causeway and reach the four way stop at Periwinkle - take a left - stay on that road and wind around towards the lighhouse at the end of the island - Lighthouse Cafe will be on your left just before you reach the lighthouse. Another casual place is the Island Cow on Periwinkle or the most casual would be the restaurant at Jerry's supermarket - also on Periwinkle. Good luck!

Lafayette, W. Lafayette Sunday Brunch

Not sure about a place for Brunch. However, for dinner, there are a number of places right on the sqaure or a block a way in downtown Lafayette. For good Italian - try La Scala which is right on the courthouse square. Other good restaurants would be Bistro 501 abd Maize & American Grill. Another spot - away from downtown and along the river is McGraws. Good luck!

Chowhound spots in rural Al. &Ga

In a couple of months I'll be driving to Florida from the North. I like to take "back" roads so I'll follow route 82 from Montgomery Al to Tifton Ga. I'll be passing through Union Springs and Eufala in Alabama and Dawson and Albany in Ga. I'm familiar with Phil's in Eufala and would appreciate some recs. about other spots along the way. Thanks

Eating before a cubs game

To enjoy the total experience of a Cub home game, I would suggest having a beer and a brat at one of the bars close to Wrigley such as Murphy's Bleachers which is located across the street from the Wrigley Field bleacher entrance. All of the bars within a block or two of Wrigley serve causual food and are usually packed with enthusiastic fans.

Breakfast Chow around Hyatt Regency on E. Wacker?

Leave the hotel through the front door - cross Wacker and walk a block or so towords the Lake - take the stairs down to Columbus Avenue and cross over the River heading North - to your right on Ilinois several blocks down will be Fox & Obel which has a nice breakfast. For something along the lines of a diner - keep heading North on Columbus to Grand Avenue - turn left and a block or two toward Michigan avenue is Mary's Cafe.

quick breakfast or lunch near Columbus & Illinois

Check out a diner type restaurant for breakfast called Mary's which is on Grand avenue - a block north of Illinois. Another spot with great hamburgers is also located on Grand - called Boston Blackies. Fox & Oble is an upscale food store located on Illinois and has great breakfasts. Good luck.
