Restaurant Recs for Coppenhagen, Denmark

KiinKiin is 1 michelin starred and INCREDIBLE....I think truly under rated and an immense experience. Also, for casual LeLe does some great traditional Vietnamese food but with good sourced Danish ingredients. Check out I love Sushi at Torellhaven as well...I'm from BC and even then the sushi was great

Non-Hotel Dinning for 130 people

How about any chinese restaurant ever? Kirin would be a great choice and you can definitely be within budget

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR 28 -need a private room with large table

Many if not all of the glowbal group restaurants can accomdate large groups. Both gotham and hys steakhouse have private rooms (gotham having multiple) and reasonable set menus. If not try the banquet room of hotels or even something like kirin or sun sui wah for something different?

Ramsey's restaurants in London

there isn't any particular reason I asked for Ramsey only suggestions...other than to narrow the pot! I am open to suggestions. I will be staying near the Tower Bridge but am wholly unfamiliar with London at all. Also, i would like to stay away from seafood, or japanese suggestions as we get a lot of that in Vancouver.

First time in London..from Vancouver

Hi there...going to London in November staying in the Marlyn Lodge right by London tower. I have never been...and need help!! Most recommendations espouse all the available ethnic foods but coming from vancouver we get alot of exposure to that. What I'm looking for is a gastropub...lots of beer, interesting food, some real english grub (hopefully including a full english breakfast) best fish n chips..you get the idea! Nothing chinese, or japanese related and certainly not seafood (as these are the things I work with on a daily basis.) Are there such things as happy hour in london as well?

Top Chef Texas - Ep. #11 - 01/18/12 (Spoilers)

grilling halibut and then putting it in a saute pan with butter is the culinary equivalent of braising a really nice piece of filet in red wine...
stupid and pointless...
both proteins are so lean that they will inevitably be dry and over-cooked regardless of Bev's cooking abilities.

I really hope that lindsay noticed how well cooked bev's halibut was......stupid cranky bossy......

I see that sarah has very aptly put on heather's shoes as the condescending nag of the house...

Where can I find a cheap pasta maker in Vancouver/Richmond :) ! price range of 15-20$

sometimes you can luck out with some house wares at places like army and navy or even the salvation army if you want a vintage one

"We can't be friends..."

I think however, worse than the cheapo friend is the "friend" who comments on how you are over tipping.... Not your money...take a hike!

My Server Is Stoned!

agreed...I have co-workers who drink before/during/in between shifts and I find it highly unprofessional. Not only is it highly illegal in BC to consume any alcohol while serving it, but it also is a liability for the restaurant itself. I don't see how drugs of any sort are different.

Top five gourmet sandwiches in Vancouver?

I can't believe no one has mentioned la grotta del fromaagio..my favourite sandwich of all time

Chambar Thoughts:

I'm sorry..while I have my own issues with Chambar's service (though i LOVE the somm since his bluewater days) it is wholly unreasonable for people simply to EXPECT something for free just because it's a birthday. First of all, why would a restaurant force feed you dessert you've already declined that you will not enjoy because you either didn't pick it, or too full. And while yes, 180 isn't cheap for two, it's also really...not that far away fm the avg bill at a semi fine dining restaurant.

Recommended Venues for Private lunch, 12-15 people, downtown Vancouver?

Hapa Umi, they still have the old private room of metro where you can use the projection screen, Hy's handles projections all the time and can do set menus at almost any price, if you are looking to do a little bit less expensive try Milestone's in yaletown?

Single... still eat dinner out? Tips?

I love eating out alone, especially after a long day or week of feeding everyone else. Sometimes I bring a book but I find if you don't, you may get an opportunity to meet someone new! As a bartender though, I do find that women eating alone get more stares then men, who seem to do it all the time ( I am of the female variety). That being said, single diners are often the most generous as they have no one influencing how much they tip, and their bills tend to be nice and hefty.
