Can't search, don't know the name-apologies

Thanks! No reviews here to be had, I guess, but at least I have the name!

What is the name of the place that went in where the Fish Market on Camelback was please? I'd like to search it, but, uh, duh, you can see my problem.

Thanks!

Oceanaire in Phoenix?

Is there a location here? The Oceanaire website is very confusing about this, and I can't seem to find a local phone #?
Thanks

Turkey day in Tucson?

We'll be traveling, and would like a nice dinner-buffet style might be nice since we neither care for turkey that much. Thanks,

Raw bar near the cruise dock-S.D.

happensatonce, we LOVED Oceanaire-thanks so much, we had a wonderful meal of (of course) oysters, following our waiter's recs (very knowledgeable staff IMHO) then had several starters-we were still talking about the spicy calamari days later! I will have to check the menu for the actual name of the dish, but thanks again for a great rec.

Olympic Flame (PHX)

Used to be one of my very favorites, and good for lunch meetings since it's never very noisy, and they don't mind dawdlers. But then the ownership changed, and I was very disappointed a couple of times. Perhaps they're back on track, or better yet, the previous owners came back. Thanks for the update, and I'll check them out soon.

Looking for same, no car, 1 nite in Oct., failing walking distance perhaps public transportation or short cab ride. Looking for oysters. Is it possible?

Zorba's Greek Cafe........anyone been??

If it's the same ownership that had a Zorba's on Camelback near 7th St., it was nothing exceptional there. But dunno.

Can I get Howard Johnson style clam strips in Vegas?

Also weeping the loss of Howard Johnson's tho' I suspect it's memory more than reality. I adored that clam chowder, and those funny hot dog buns-buttered bread? And the fried clams, and the ice cream........................

I was embarrased to post the same thing, and I like the salad bar at Wild Oats as well. They put some of their fresh deli items in, differing each day, and it's a great way to sample, or get lucky and get their chicken salad with radishes.

AZCentral.com - best of?

From the comments, others are suspicious that the chain had people voting overtime.

Yuck.

And oh gosh, P.F. Changs??!!

Why are all the Chinese restaurants in Central Phoenix a bad facsimile of Panda Express?

Oh! I love the Prime. And as for missing China Doll, it went downhill so badly at the end, I don't miss it at all. As far as menu items go, I figure they always have some non-threatening items, like those nasty "crab" devil things with the fried wonton and cream cheese, for the non-Chinese loving spouse so the other partner can occaisionally partake.

Kid-friendly Mexican in Phoenix? / Grand Canyon

Second El Bravo-couldn't think of the name yesterday, close to the Pointe; little strip mall on the west side, very good, low key, friendly. I suspect they will be very kid friendly, as I have often seen hispanic families there.

Cave Creek, AZ recs?

Ugh, Harolds. Very very poor service, clique-ish atmosphere, unremarkable food, IMHO.
