Best white wine for a white peach sangria?

The best Sangria ever was in Porto made with white Port. Amazing! If I ever return my first stop would be Bull&Bear for white Sangria and I would drink it everyday.

We also drank Porto Tonic, so if you buy a bottle you can try it too, white Port, tonic with slices of lemon.

Papas and Beer is fine for convenience but not for a taste of Asheville. It might even make you a little sad

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Manhattan Memories

I used to go to Florent, I thought how progressive they were with just the grape varietal and price on the wine menu. I would walk there by myself scared half to death! Also cash only, they would take an out of state check!! I was floored.. That's how long ago! Checks!!!

Check out Punk Wok on Monday nights at MG Road, Rhubarb and Seven Sows. You must get the steak tartare at The Admiral. If you like dive bars, the Double Crown is a hop, skip and a jump away from The Admiral. I like Limones too. If time permits, don't limit yourself to one stop, go to two or three restaurants a night.

Raleigh Near Marriott City Center

You are in a really good location as far as walking and food! Like D R C said, Poole's is an excellent point, I also am dying to eat dinner at her coffee shop Joule, I went in there for coffee one morning and the previous evening specials were on the board it sounded fantastic!!

And while were at it, you might as well go to her bar too! Fox Liquor Bar! If you like destination cocktails, go to Foundation too.

If you like spicy food go to Bida Manda, - make a reservation!

Check out Buku, Mo's Diner, for lunch I would check out Centro (Mexican) and Spize (Vietnamese, especially if you like Bahn mi)

Marsala wine

This is one instance that more expensive is better and I don't even want to write those words!! Just don't buy the rock gut bottom of the barrel. Sometimes they have expensive half bottles too.. And it's not crazy the more expensive is in the $10 to $20 range. I like dry and sweet, so whatever you grab will be great!!

When I make Marsala, I prefer it brothy not thickened gravy, before I serve it I put a dollop of butter in it!! It's perfect for a dinner party because it's easy and you can put it in the oven on low and let it sit there. I also love to serve it with angel hair pasta tossed with pesto or mashed potatoes, what a decision!!!

Fresh mushrooms taste better and buy more than one varietal and add onion if you like.

Restaurant near Charlotte airport?

I would eat in Charlotte, once you pass Concord it's slim pickings. Unless you want to venture off the highway. Pinky's Westside Grill is a casual hamburger joint, so if you want to eat low brow food, it is amazing for vegetarians! Falafel, veggie burgers, veggie dogs, veggie chili.. Not far off of 77. The last image is a beef burger so no one mistakes it for a vegetarian restaurant!

My favorite menu item is Pimpin' Fries, waffles fries with pimento cheese, I add veggie chili and jalapenos!!!!

Lantern's Keep is a hop, skip and a jump away from the Belasco, make reservations!

Belmont, NC recommendations?

Belmont doesn't have any restaurants that are worth mentioning, sure there are restaurants, but I only eat in Belmont if I'm being polite with clients. Ugh.

Tell him to check out Heirloom, it's about a 20 minute drive.
And then the usual suspects in Charlotte!

If you are there on a Monday or Tuesday, check out Punk Wok in MG Road. Also there's a ice cream sandwich food cart, Sunshine Sammies. put that on your list!

Remember to make reservations at the nicer places in the evening.

Who has best hotdog in NC?

Totally agree about Roast Grill, I just ate there last week, because I used to live in Raleigh and it is embedded in my mind, I thought there are much better hot dogs, but however..... it is a little slice of heaven. The bottled cokes, the obituaries taped on the wall. The cute little old lady.

Question about Bangkok street food

My favorite part about traveling is street food. Someone said above to be careful of ice, but when you are on the street and you see a street vendor with Thai tea, it's so hard to resist!! And if eating street food makes you uncomfortable and you are going to go for it, just ignore the large buckets of flatware in dirty water on the street. You have to eat mango and sticky rice on the street too!Going back in September!

Check out Remedy Diner too.
However just like RonboNC recommended Spize, if you like Vietnamese sandwiches, Spize rocked my world.

Downtown Charlotte for a Large Group - Your Recs?

7th Street Market closes at 8p on Saturdays, if you met around 6p that might work. There's pizza, sushi and sandwiches. There's also a cheese store, coffee shop and a retail wine outlet. So everyone can grab what they want. The best place for coffee is located in there (Not Just Coffee), I would rather walk barefoot then drink coffee in the hotel.

There's also Villa Francesca's on 7th and Caldwell, that is a good family place.

Maybe you could reserve some tables on the patio at e2, it's not really what you think of for kids, but sitting outside would be fun! You could call and see what they say.. and more importantly, they have excellent cocktails.

I'm posting photos from food and wine from 7th St Market. The pizza and salad photos of Pure Pizza. They also have a few local beers on tap.

Restaurant Pet Peeves

I can't stand when restaurants make waiters tell you how the menu works. Like we can't figure out how small plates or what primi means.

Ohhhh and do not serve me Champagne flat or warm. And when I tell you it's warm, don't feel the cold bottle and tell me it's cold, try drinking it. In fact, I wish every time I was served flat Champagne or bubbles, I wish the employee had to drink it and pay $15 for it. Things would change. (insert evil laughter)
