Solo diner with a day and a half

Hi. Single woman staying at The Four Seasons and trying to figure out the best way to cram in some great eating. Absolutely love dim sum (all Chinese, really) and all seafood including raw oysters. I'm looking for places that are easily accessible and where I can get awesome food, and no attitude for being on my own. Help- I leave for YVR tomorrow!

couple of meals in vancouver

I will be in Vancouver for a couple of days on business. I am staying at the Marriott Pinnacle and my meetings are up and down W. Georgia street. I really need some help deciding where to hit up for some meals. I love seafood, asian food (especially dim sum), street food, local/seasonal food and am really open to any ideas. I am travelling alone and am not particularly concerned with budget. I won't have a car.

I will have two lunch opportunities (can't take longer than 1-1.5 hours including travel time) and two dinners.

A few days in Halifax

I will be visiting Halifax for a couple of days and am looking for some great places to dine (alone). I particularly love seafood, dim sum, and unique local food experiences.

I am staying at the Marriott Harbourfront and won't have a car but would cab if necessary.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recommendations all happily considered.

I will be in town for a workshop and am staying at the Century Plaza Hotel. I will be alone and am looking for some great eating. I particularly love seafood. What can you recommend? I don't mind whether it's a nice restaurant or a hole in the wall.. just looking for some really good food.

Best KOSHER in Jerusalem?


Going to Jerusalem for three week and I am noticing that alot of the recommended places aren't kosher. I'd love to hear about your favorite places (hole-in-the-wall, sit-down, food store, whatever) that are kosher (no rabbanut please).

Kosher in Chicago

Heading to Chicago and was wondering what some good kosher places are. I love everything from asian to great hotdogs and everything in between. Besides restaurants, are there any great grocery stores I should check out?

Cake in Ottawa?

I am looking for recommendations for a baker in Ottawa who could make a funky, non-traditional wedding cake which wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. Any ideas?
