This place looks amazing, just not sure if it is good with the 2 kids.

3 days in Buenos Aires (2 adults & 2 kids)???

Hello,

I searched and come up with some good tips, was hoping someone that has been with kids could give some good recommendations for places to eat, and other must does, for someone that has never been!

We are staying at the Hilton in puerto madero. 1 kid is a very adventurous eater like me, and the other is not at all like his mother. Not to worried at this point about price, just don't want to go somewhere, where kids will be looked down on, and i have to wear a blazer!

Thanks in advance.

One Night: Where to go Chez Panisse or Gary Danko

I would really like to try Panisse. But my wife is a bit picky, and likes to chose. Am i right, that downstairs is a set menu (no choices) and in the Cafe you do have choices? Also does the food drop off in quality from one to the other?

How about Spanish food? We have some good mexican places in Atlanta, but no good Spanish places. Just now have 2 Italian places that are worth anything IMO: Sotto Sotto, and Pietra Cucina (if you ever come this way)

Also, I have a soft spot in my heart for the Berkley (sp) area, as my god mother got her PHD there in linguistics and I used to visit her there when I was young. A good lunch spot in the area will for sure be in the cards.

My Wife and I will be spending 2 days in here in August. I dont really know where we will be staying.

She is not big into Asian Cusine, she loves mexican, seafood, and sushi. I love it all. Not to worried about price at this point. We live in Atlanta, so not looking for any national chains, really some unique places, with great food, that the locals go to. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Driving the PCH in August, need suggestions

Hello,

My wife and I of 3 years are finally able to take a honeymoon, so we have chosen to drive from San Francisco on a Sunday down to LA, we will have 7 days to make the trip. I would appreciate any and all suggestions on places that we must stop in for a good bite to eat.

We are open to all cusines (though she does not love Asian), and price points. Looking for good food, with nice atmosphere, and some good fresh cooking! Thanks so much,

Recommendations around CROWNE PLAZA LONDON THE CITY [London]

Any others? Went to the Italian last night, and had a simple pasta, and the Octopus Carpaccio which was fantastic. Any must have dishes at St.John. The roast bone marrow is on top of my list.

I am going to work in London for 3 days next week, and would love some good food recommendations from you all.

I have heard the Italian place inside the actual hotel is very good.

Atlanta Airport

Paschel's in the Artrium is not a sitdown, it has tables, but is next to a wendy's, dominos, and chinease. There is a sit down Houlihans in the atrium that is not bad. The sit down Paschels is in one of the terminals.
