Saturday afternoon down by Battery Park

Need a place for a late lunch down by Battery Park, South Street Seaport, some where down in that area. Four women who love good food, nothing fancy. We are taking a beer tasting cruise on a sailing schooner and will be hungry and looking to eat when we get off the boat. Thanks...we LOVE all cuisines.

Boston Help!

Neptune's is definitely on m list, it is close to the B&B we are staying in. What about Aria, anyone been there? AN rec's for a good chop house, where we could get good steaks and chops???

Boston Help!

I love all kinds of food, but French bistro food is a favorite. I love veal, lamb, seafood...basically anything goes for me.

Boston Help!

I am going to Boston for a long weekend. I have never been and I need suggestions for some great dining experiences. It will be four of us. Two couples. We are staying in the North End. Looking for great restaurants. An suggestions for a few memorable meals?? Thanks hounds

3 nights in November, good choices?

I really like Lilette, Petite Grocery and Bistro Daisy. I thought August was excellent. I also like Stella and Herbsaint..

ABBOCCATO in the Blakely Hotel

Not formal at all, will be at the Blakely meeting out of town friends who suggested eating at Abbaccato because it is in the hotel.. I did not find that menu inviting at all..they wanted to go to someplace we could have a drink with a veiw, supposedly the view is really nice from their lounge...it got good reviews on zagat and I figured why niot give it a try..I was thinking JoJo or Triomphe.. I have no idea I wanted them to go down to the village but every place I suggested was a no..I think they want to stay around the Times Square/Rockerfeller Plaza/Theatre area..so to hop a cab and go to Print isn't a bad idea.

ABBOCCATO in the Blakely Hotel

Yes I definitely agree with you.I use zagat as a guide then I usually ask chowhound ..it has seemed to formulate success in my experience... I definitely have never been steered wrong when using this method while traveling..I have found some great restaurants on my travels using this.. I usually try to review restaurants with a 23-24 or above rating and not really even bother with anything under a 22...and what is haute cuisine to someone is not to someone else..it is all realative isn't it...what someone from the midwest thinks is a fantastic dining experience someone from NYC might not agree...I have used zagat combined with Chowhound to find great restaurants in the states and abroad was well..I love chowhound..the best!!

My short Trip

My trip was too short!! But the food was great. Here are the best things we ate. Duck Gumbo at Herbsaint...sublime!!! The mussels at Crepe nanou, the best mussels I ever ate!!! The crepe dessert was awesome. Loved Crepe Nanou. Filet Mignon with foie gras butter in a port wine sauce at Bistro Daisy...EXCELLENT!!! The meat was done to perfection, the spinach, potatoes soooo good..it was a perfect meal.The BBQ shrimp at Mr B's Bistro...heaven on earth, with the bread to soak up all that sauce, really good, but MESSY!!!! Those were the highlights, someone recommended Ignatius for "great" food at a reasonal price...the place is a dump!!! The boudin was aweful, my husband said the seafood gumbo was good, I didn't even try it. Stay away!!!

5 days, my choices: iris, herbsaint, August, Dick and Jennys, Bristro Daiseys, Dantes kitchen, Galatroirs, Geautreas, and or Mr.Bs

Bistro Daisy I went with a group everyone loved it. August the food is fantastic, it is expensive, I would go for lunch unless money is not an issue. Herbsaint, I loved their gumbo, it was awesome. All of the choices you made are solid. I haven't been to Dante's Kitchen..I am pondering going when I am down there the end of the month. Enjoy!!! Go Saints

Best Gumbo to be had for Lunch??

Well I think I will take Mandina's off my list and probably hit Herbsaint for Gumbo, I had Gumbo at Herbsaint on a trip to NOLA last January and the Gumbo was awesome...they are open for lunch, can you just sit at the bar and have gumbo or would you need to sit?

AFTER MUCH RESEARCH..DANTE's KITCHEN OR LA CREPE NANOU??

I am all about the food...the "vibe" not so much as the food. I had one of my most memorable meals in Lisbon at a complete dive that only locals frequented that our cabdriver from the airport brought us to. It was awesome and i remember pulling up to it and walking in and thinking my god what have we gotten ourselves into!!! If the restaurant decor is appealing that just makes it all the better. Thanks for the input.

AFTER MUCH RESEARCH..DANTE's KITCHEN OR LA CREPE NANOU??

Ok I really looked for restaurants uptown that are open on Monday night and I have narrowed it down to Dante's Kitchen or Crepe Nanou. I have not been to either one of these restaurants on my many trips to NOLA. Which would you choose? I will also be going to Sara's, Luke, Bistro Daisy..might have to take one of those off, do to time restraints. I can make reservations at Dante's but not LCN...ok hounds what do you say...DK or LCN????

Best Gumbo to be had for Lunch??

I have never been to D&J in all of my trips to NOLA, I have been to Patois and Herbsaint and I loved the gumco at both, but I think Herbsaint has it for me..GREAT Gumbo. Come on hounds I want to have the best gumbo this trip!!!
