Gullah Gourmet She-Crab Soup Mix

Brought this home from a visit to Charleston SC - and it was great!
They have a website and I can order online - but I'd like to avoid the shipping charge.
Has anyone seen Gullah Gourmet products anywhere in Chicago?

Need advice re: grocery stores

Trader Joe's has a line of Indian food - and it's cheaper than Jewel's!

we came, we ate, we shopped...a quick (lie, it's long)trip review!

So glad you tried Blue 13.
I was there twice this summer - and really enjoyed it!
Have to get back there soon.

Frontera advice

Don't know if it's available at lunch time - but I love the Frontera version of eggs benedict.
It's mesa, black beans, egg, and a wonderful sauce with chorizo and some type of chile. Fabulous!
(I usually go on Saturday - this is on the brunch/lunch menu.)

Surviving the loop without a car

I've yet to have anything good at Steve's.
I love good rye bread - so I'll give it another chance.
Thanks!

In Chicago for 2 nights

If expense isn't an issue, skip the cafe and eat in the main restaurant - Spiaggia!
Try Topolobampo (or Frontera Grill) - award winning Mexican. They share a kitchen.

Christmas Dinner in Charleston

Neither Peninsula Grill not 82 Queen were restaurants that we had considered.
Thank you. We'll look at both of them.

We'd appreciate any other thoughts - and impressions of Magnolia or Poogan's Porch.

Christmas Dinner in Charleston

Where should we have Christmas dinner while visiting Charleston?
Two years ago we were in Savannah and celebrated at The Olde Pink House. We're looking for something similar.
The descriptions of Poogan's Porch and Magnolia sound good. But I'd love to get the opinions of those who've been there.
Thank you.

Ty Nant Red?

I saw Ty Nant water in a red bottle at a deli in Chicago.
Does anyone know who sells it Atlanta?
Thanks.

Nabisco Chocolate Wafers

Couldn't find them at my closest Jewel - but I did get them at Treasure Island on Elm Street. Thanks!

Thai Urban Kitchen in Ogilvie Center

Blackbird is wonderful - but NOT conversation friendly!

Nabisco Chocolate Wafers

Where can I get Nabisco Chocolate Wafers in the Near North area?
These are the wafers that you layer with whipped cream - to create 'icebox cake' or 'zebra pudding'.
Thanks.

Perennial Reviews?

Had dinner there on October 1. Loved it! Waitstaff is wonderful. Everyone in our group of 6 enjoyed their food.

New Yorker Coming to Chicago for 1st Time

From a New Yorker who's lived in Chicago for 17 years - skip the deep dish pizza - never found a New Yorker who liked it.
I love brunch at Frontera Grill on Saturday morning. Try their version of eggs benedict - mesa, black beans, spicy sausage cream.
A new restaurant, Perennial, is very good.
Old Town Brasserie is lovely - and there is entertainment.

Christmas Dinner in Savannah?

Thanks, tomself.
This sounds wonderful!
The other place that was recommended was the Olde Pink House. This sounds more elegant.
Any comment on the Pink House?

Christmas Dinner in Savannah?

I will be visiting Savannah over the holidays. I'm looking for recommendations for Christmas dinner. I prefer something somewhat formal and in the historic district.
Thanks.
