If Fitzmorris ate there - I'd go elsewhere...

Restaurants outside of New Orleans

Hymel's in Convent has been going downhill for years - the last 3 times I've visited, the food was abysmal. The only thing worth ordering is boiled crabs - everything else is prepared way in advance and frozen. The gumbo is like dishwater. Don't waste your time.

Best wine you've had under $15

Try - FETZER Gerwurtztraminer - it's excellent! Everyone I've recommended this wine to has LOVED IT... good "goldilocks" (not too sweet - not too dry) wine for all occasions.
We're HOOKED...

What places do you go to because of chowhound?

LOVED house of Nanking in Chinatown - excellent recommendation...
LOVED Tartine Bakery - delicious, fresh and perfectamente'

Did NOT enjoy Gold Mountain in Chinatown - dirty and dingy...waitstaff bringing dim sun did not explain WHAT each was fluently. Some dim sum not too tasty... overall Bad recc. from Chowhounders.

Where are the BEST restaurants in Gulf Shores, AL to Pensacola, FL

We will be staying near Ono Island and love to go out to dinner. We've been to ALL of the recommended tourist traps in the region. WHERE are the best local seafood restaurants?

What do Chowhounds do for a living (besides eat of course)? [old]

I am Marketing/PR Director for one of the largest music festivals in the country...but I LOVE to COOK and EAT more than almost anything else! I enjoy everything that I do and I appreciate all of you true "TASTE BUDS"! This is a fun site with insider info for us fine people who appreciate GOOD FOOD.

Visiting San Francisco June 27-29

Yes - we have a car and will-drive-for-good-food! We are from Tennessee, but lived in South Louisiana for years and know what good food is. Our faves are seafood, italian and authentic Cajun.
We are also visiting Napa - where are the best wineries? There are SO many!
Thanks again...

Visiting San Francisco June 27-29

Please send any recommendations for mid-range priced restaurants in the San Francisco and Napa Valley area. Nothing touristy - just good and reasonably priced. Breakfasts, lunches, wine bars and dinner!
Thanks so much!

Favorite Vinaigrette Recipes?

My fave lowfat dressing is simple:
Juice of 2 lemons
4 pkgs Splenda
2 TBSP Olive Oil (light)

Tart, sweet and just plain GOOD on any salad!
