Weaver's Smoked Dried Beef & Pork Bacon... HELP!

I ordered for S Clyde Weaver and it was fabulous! More expensive than the old Weavers through Godshals, but at least I can get it shipped back East. Thanks for the help!

South Loop - Farm to Table or Gastro Pub - no beef pls.

I will be visiting a friend Sat night, who has just moved to South Loop and I would like to take her out to dinner.

She is Indian American, and doesn't eat beef, but otherwise is a real food enthusiast and adventurous eater, as am I.

I would love to find something that isn't too expensive (under $50 per person) that highlights farm to table cuisine. A neighborhood gem or even a gastro pub setting would be nice... fun and funky is OK too.

We are willing to travel outside the neighborhood as well. Thanks in-advance for any suggestions. ~Rob

Weaver's Smoked Dried Beef & Pork Bacon... HELP!

Thanks for the endorsement of S.Clyde Weaver... They seem to be the best option and offer both the Dried Smoked Beef and Smoked Bacon that I am looking for. They do offer online shopping and shipping, though prices are more expensive than Godshall's/Weaver's... oh well. Better than not having it at all ;)

Weaver's Smoked Dried Beef & Pork Bacon... HELP!

Thank you! I've heard that S. Clyde Weaver is very good also. I will probably try them as they seem to have shipping available.

Weaver's Smoked Dried Beef & Pork Bacon... HELP!

I live in RI and for years have been ordering Weaver's Dried Smoked Beef and Bacon directly from Godshall's (the new-ish owner of Weaver's) and have just found out that they no-longer offer mail or online orders to individuals. They only want to deal with retailers (wholesale orders).

Does anyone know where else I can buy these items and have them shipped?

I am panicked because it is our family's tradition to have Weaver's for breakfast on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning... Hormel just won't do!!!

Cape Sea Grille - Harwich Port

I've only been here in-season. Food was decent, but service and decor were lacking. Didn't think it was anything special or worth the high-ish prices. Glad u had a good meal here though... Maybe I should give them another shot.

PROVIDENCE - Peking Duck

Any suggestion on where to find GREAT Peking Duck? I'm looking for the more traditional crispy skin preparation of the whole duck, served in multiple courses. I live in Prov, but would be willing to drive up to 30 mins. Thanks!

Yikes. Dinner tonight in or near Smithfield, RI?

Oki's Japanese Steak House on Mineral Spring Ave has been there forever and does hibachi fairly well... It's the only place I dine out in Springfield.

MARION / MATTAPOISETT / WAREHAM Please Help!!! Business Lunch...

I am hosting a business meeting and lunch on Friday and need to find a somewhat classy (food more important than decor) spot that I can bring my clients to. I am having a lot of trouble finding anything other than a fried seafood or pizza joint. I assumed there would be something nice near Tabor Academy and scheduled the meeting in Marion, but it is tough researching online. Very little on YELP etc. PLEASE HELP!!!

Thursday evening, big group, not necessarily a sit down dinner...

We will be in Chelsea the first Thursday in May for a family member's art opening and will want to all meet up for a drink and food somewhere afterward. There may be as many as 20+ people so a sit-down meal seems way to difficult. We are looking for a spot with great food and drinks, where people can come and go. A fun scene with some kinda of food/appetizers/tapas, is a must. Any suggestions?

Providence: Chicken & Waffles???

I've heard the most positive things about The Hen House

http://www.thehenhouseboston.com/

But there are also a number of places in Dorchester/Mattapan.

Athens & Santorini, Greece

I will be visiting Athens and Santorini for the first time, and would love some dining suggestions (breakfast, lunch or dinner). Everything from home-style casual to upscale and fancy would be helpful as we want to try a little bit of everything. Thanks so much!

Garnachas in Providence area?

Garnachas: Guatemalan (Oaxacan, really) dish of crispy, fried tortillas topped with ground meat and other savory toppings. Similar to a small tostada.

Lobster Brewster

The Brewster Fish House, on Main Street (Route 6A) is arguably the best seafood restaurant in town. It's small, but the service is always great! They may not have a traditional boiled/steamed lobster on the menu at all times, but last summer I had a butter-poached lobster that was INCREDIBLE! Fish chowder is also a MUST.

Garnachas in Providence area?

I recently visited Belize and Guatemala and LOVED the simple yet flavorful garnachas that were a lunchtime staple... Any idea where you can find these in the Providence/Cranston area around lunchtime? Please help!!!

Cheap Italian Eats (like Angelo's in Providence) in Boston Metro

Red Sauce places can be great, if they are decent quality. I would say $10-15 plates... ~Thanks!

Cheap Italian Eats (like Angelo's in Providence) in Boston Metro

I grew up in Providence and our go-to dinner out was Angelo's Civita Farnese on Atwell's Ave in Providence. Simple Italian-American fare, but always hit the spot and was an amazing value, even for veal dishes. They are still doing a great job today BTW... Anybody know of a place like this in the greater Boston area? I am always willing to drive if it is worth the trip... Thanks!

BEST BREAKFAST/BRUNCH NEAR KANSAS CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

I have a flight arriving at MCI around 9am and will be getting a rental car and waiting until 12:30pm when a friend arrives, before driving to Kirksville, MO. Rather than taking a cat nap in the car, I figured I'd find a nice place for breakfast/brunch... Any suggestions? As a New Englander, I always take advantage of an opportunity to dine at Waffle House, but am sure Kansas City has more to offer. ;)

Authentic Rotisserie Chicken (take-home)

(just spoke to SC-Seekonk) FYI: They roast the chickens throughout the day as they run-out and only allow them to sit, un-sold for up to 4 hours. The last batch goes in around 5pm as they take 90 minutes to roast. Though they don't take reservations or hold an individual chicken, they are happy to let you know what the supply is via telephone.

Authentic Rotisserie Chicken (take-home)

Thanks Barb! I am actually a member and totally forgot that they do those! I know they are known for having a great butcher shop in general, and right on my way home. Do you think they will have any left around 5:30pm on weeknights?

Authentic Rotisserie Chicken (take-home)

I used to live in Paris and one of the easiest and tastiest dinners was to grab a fresh rotisserie chicken that seemed to be spinning and roasting on every street corner all across the city.

I know most grocery stores (even some Target stores with food) roast these, but they tend to be loaded with bizarre/fake tasting marinades and undoubtedly, chemicals...

I have bought them at Whole Foods in the past, and they are fine, but I'd rather support a more local/independent business... any suggestions?

I work in Cranston and live in Rehoboth, so something in the Cranston, Providence, East Providence, Seekonk, Rehoboth area would be splendid. Thanks!
