Looking for Yorkshire Pudding [Westchester]

Thank you all for responding. Both my mother and grandmother made excellent roasts and puddings and I was feeling nostalgic. I think my best bet is to cook it myself, but I will definitely keep the restaurants mentioned above in mind.
Cheers!

Is there a restaurant in Westchester that makes a good roast beef and yorkshire pudding?

Atlantic Beach, NC recs?

By and large my wife and I enjoyed the restaurant scene in the Atlantic Beach area. First the highlights:
1. Island Grille. We ate there twice. First on a Tuesday, which offered a two-for-one special. I had scallops and shrimp with linguini in a light, tomato parmesan sauce while my wife had swordfish. We returned the following Saturday and I had shrimp and grits while she had the scallops. Both meals were excellent. Be sure to make a reservation, especially on Monday and Tuesday, the restaurant fills up quick.
2. Blue Moon Bistro, Beaufort. This was a lovely restaurant. Once again I order shrimp, with a "perlo" ham risotto. My wife order a caesar salad with shrimp. The atmoshere, service just added to a wonderful dining experience.
3. Bistro by Sea, Morehead City. We both started with the she-crab soup, which was out of this world. My wife and I both ordered a locally caught bay snapper stuffed with crab meat. Delicious.
4. Aqua, Beaufort. Another winner. It was pirate weekend in Beaufort so the staff were decked out in full regalia. I had an appetizer of shrimp of grits and an entree of short rib pappardelle, while my wife had the bouillabaisse. Fantastic meal.
5. Amos Mosquitos. Loud, crowded, so-so food. Reminded me of a TGI Fridays. Okay as a last resort.
6. Crab's Claw. Wonderful view, lousy food. My wife and I booked a table on the patio, overlooking the beach and ocean. Watched a beautiful sunset, and then we tucked into our food. Awful. The less said the better.

Sunday night dinner in Fredericksburg, Va

My wife and I ended up at Bistro Bethem. I had a Sunday Special of two dishes for $20---starting with a duck mouse, bread and butter pickles, house mustard, and toasts, and then a skirt steak with shitake mushrooms. My wife had monk fish. Both meals were excellent.

Sunday night dinner in Fredericksburg, Va

Thanks machellebelle,
Unfortunately both are closed for dinner on Sunday. I came across online a few places that sounded interesting:
Taj Indian Cuisine
Fujiya House
TruLuv
Poppy Hill
Bistro Bethem
Kybecca
Umi
Can anyone recommend any of the above or suggest something better? I appreciate any replies.
Thanks,
Remycat

Atlantic Beach, NC recs?

Thanks Jeanne, I'll check it out. Most of the previous hound's recs center on Beaufort and Morehead City, with the consensus that Atlantic Beach restaurants are by and large pretty poor. I'm glad to hear that at least one place is worth checking out.

Recs for Italy trip

Thank you for the suggestions, I'll let you know how I fared when I get back. Hey, RomeAddict, there's nothing wrong with my attitude, if I have an opinion I'll express it. That said, I'm looking forward to my trip. Thanks-Remycat

Recs for Italy trip

Gee, thanks all for replying to Rome addict-who requested the same basic information I requested about ten hours earlier-what's up with you guys? From this board I've read quite a few postings of snooty service from waiters in Italian restaurants-does the same apply for some basic information on this Italy board regarding restaurant recommendations? I realize that this ground has been covered ad nauseum, but I figured with the change of the seasons, less tourists in Italy, etc, the quality of service may differ from the summer. I was just looking for a "heads up" on where to eat? Thanks anyway, Remycat.

Recs for Italy trip

My wife and I will be in Italy in two weeks, spending three days in Venice, three days in Florence, and four days in Rome. From past recs on the Board I thought I tried these restaurants-In Venice: Alle Testiere; Osteria da Fiore; Fiaschetteria Toscana; Trattoria Il Refolo. Florence-Cibreo; Trattoria Antico Fattore; Buca Lapi; Trattoria Marione. Rome-Da Armando al Pantheon; Porto Di Repetta[ Matricianella; Checchino dal 1887. From the boards I see it is hard to find a restaurant open on Sunday evening, We arrive in Rome on Sunday, and will also be in Florence on a Sunday. Any suggestions? Are the above restaurants as good as the boards make them out? I'd be happy for any input.
Thanks, Remycat.

Spending a five days in North Truro in two weeks

Thanks fellow Hounds for all your suggestions prior to my leaving for the Cape. My wife and I spent a wonderful five days in North Truro and had some outstanding meals. My personal favorite was a rack of New Zealand Lamb served with a horseradish potato cake at the Wicked Oyster. We also had fine meals at Finely JPs, Moby Dick's (twice-great lobster,great price) and Terra Luna. We both ate a good share of Wellfleet oysters over the five days. All told, no complaints and very satisfied stomachs. Once again, thanks!

Spending a five days in North Truro in two weeks

From the board I figured I can't miss with these restaurants for dinner: Finely JP's; Moby Dick's' Napi's; Terran Luna; and Chester. Are these choices on the money, or should I look to some other places? Any help from the hounds is appreciated. Thanks-remycat007
