Looking for fun, un-stuffy, Italian style Trattoria in SEA

When I'm in the mood for "comfort" Italian food I go to Pasta Bella on top of Quenn Anne. Been going there for 8 years and have never been let down.

Restaurant Supply Open to the General Public

If you are looking for general Restaurant items such as dishes, glassware , straws, napkins, cups, to-go containers and basic food I would suggest Cash N Carry. To fully furnish a restaurant I would second Bargreen Ellison.

Solo Dining Options - Weeknight...

Sorry, should have been clearer that I'm looking to "Belly up" at the Bar in a Restaurant. I hate sitting in the dining room when I'm dining solo.

Brew pubs and kids

Elliot Bay Brewing in West Seattle and Burien is an excellent place for good beer, good food and is kid friendly.

4 Day Drive, Boston to Monhegan ME in June, where to eat?

My wife and I are flying into Boston Mid-June for a weekend wedding on Monhegan Island. We want to take our time and search for hidden treasures along the coast, so we are taking 4 days to make the drive. We are open to all cuisine and understand the more memorable the experience the more $ it costs and we are ok with that.. Idea's?

Uniquely New York?

Excellent ideas, Thank you! A couple people have brought up Gray's Papaya/Papaya King, it just so happens that today on Yahoo Travel a writer did a Top 10 places to eat before you die and #10 was the hot dog vendor at Paley Park. Has anyone eaten the Dogs at Paley park and wish to discuss/compare with the Papaya's?

Angelo's Pizza...

Is there a difference between how the pies are cooked at their location on 57th and their location on 53rd? My hotel is closer to the one on 53rd but if it's worth the extra time for a better pie I'll go to the original one on 57th.

Uniquely New York?

During my travels I make it a point to eat something that is unique to the city I'm visiting or that had originated in the city. For example my last trip was to New Orleans, I skipped the gumbo and cajun food and went straight for the Muffelatta Sandwich. I ate one at the origninal shop, Central Grocery, then I ate one at a small restaurant that added their own twist to it that the locals raved about. So my question is what is unique or originated in New York? Please don't say pizza because while I know that NY is famous for thin crust pizza I have gorged myself on pizza on a trip to Naples, Italy. This is my first trip to NYC and I'm more interested in eating where the locals eat and not at the "chef of the moment" overpriced eatery. Thanks for any guidance.

Manhatten on a budget...

My wife and I are celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary by spending 4 nights in NYC. We live in Seattle and feel lucky that there are a number of reasonably priced, high quality restaurants to choose from. I asked a few of my close friends for their opinions on dining in Manhatten and each one would cost more than we can afford, we were lucky enough to get a good hotel deal online just so we could go to NYC. So my open ended question is, where can my wife and I have a good lunch/dinner within walking distance of Manhatten that will be both quality food and reasonable prices? IE, Lunch $50, Dinner $100.

Muffelata Sandwich...

Well, I just got back from my first trip to NOLA and what a fantastic experience! I really appreciated everyone's advice and I hit Central Grocery on Sat and Napolean house on Sun. I stepped into Central Grocery and was immediately stopped at the door due to a long line, I knew this was a good indication that it had to be good. After a short wait wait I grabbed a counter stool and unwrapped the whole Muff that I was sharing with a friend. I have to say that it was love at first bite! The olive spread is amazing and the quality of the salami and provolone was first rate. But what also impressed me was the bread was brushed with an olive oil that really gave it an extra dimension. Napolean House - truth be told I had thought that I would like their Muff better because I do prefer my sandwiches warm. It was a beatiful day so securing a seat in the courtyard was a big bonus, I ordered a 1/4 muff and red beans and rice. I know that some serious foodies only concern themselves with the food, but I believe that a restaurants atmosphere is equally important and the courtyard was a definite hit. The Muff came and my first impression based upon sight was that the quality of the bread was not the same as Central. I took my first bite and I loved the meat warm and the cheese melted, but I felt the olive spread was subpar and those little details like brushed olive oil on the bread was not there. So, I had hoped that one would trump the other and I would leave NOLA with a clear cut favorite, but I'm torn. On the one hand I feel the quality of the Muff at Central was superior, but I enjoyed the Napolean House as far as overall experience. Since I plan on making NOLA a regular destination I will go to Napolean house when I'm in the mood for a sit down meal in a beatiful courtyard and enoy a full menu of choices, but I will also take the time when I'm shopping in the French Quarter for a quick bite at Central Grocery, no matter how rude they are it's a great sandwich!

Muffelata Sandwich...

I'm coming to NOLA this weekend and am staying near Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, I have seen shows about the Muffelata Sandwich and I want to try an "Authentic" one, any recommendations close to where I'm staying?
