Vinhotinto75, I am fascinated at how much you contribute to this board. You must really love Lisbon. I couldn't resist asking for some of your insights. We would love some recommendations for dinner.

We enjoy seafood, duck and pork. We like historic and traditional restauraunts, but prefer a little bit of space around us. We love walking so location is not an issue. We would prefer no-smoking resaturaunts.

Thanks in advance!

Quite good Moroccan in the Potsdam/Canton area

Unfortunately, the owner of Leonie's was arrested for selling cocaine. I was told the food was good there, but he one time I went, it was closed, even though the sign said it was a normal business hour.

Massena and Gary Danko! Thanks for the info.

Quite good Moroccan in the Potsdam/Canton area

We live in the San Francisco Bay area and enjoy good food. For the past three years we have been coming to Canton, New York to visit our daughter in college. Until this September, we really haven't found anything we would heartily recommend. On this trip, we went to La Casbah one night and had to go back the next. The lamb tagine was very flavorful, as I suspect the other tagines would be. We also had the shrimp kebabs, which were grilled perfectly with the dry spice marinade getting just a little crusty, but the shrimps still holding a nice texture. The portions were quite generous, certainly more than you expect in the Bay Area. They had a nice selection of reasonably priced wines. Prices overall were quite reasonable, for a very good price/quality ratio.

The menu offer some other dishes, but we stuck with the Moroccan side of the menu.

They have a website:

Where to eat in Ottawa?

We will be spending 3 or 4 days in Ottawa in mid August. I'd love some suggestions? While we have a moderate preference for French and Italian, we will eat anywhere as long as it is quite good.

Thanks in advance!

We will also be in Canton, New York for a few days, in case anyone knows of a good spot there.
