Looking for Chinese Noodle Soups-MetroWest

We are looking for great Chinese Noodle Soups in the MetroWest Area. We really like EONoodle in Framingham, MA, but are wondering if there are any others worth trying.
Thanks in advance for you responses.

Best Pasta-Providence?

What is the concensus...who do you think has the best pasta dishes in Providence?
We know Al Forno's isn't a favorite on this board, but we really enjoy their pasta bolonese.
What are your thoughts?

Dinner after Brown U. College Tour. Ideas?

Sorry but Al Forno still has the best business in providence...and the best pizza.Although Al Forno is expensive, there are more expensive restaurants in Providence such as Nuovo, Ruth Chris to name a couple. And BTW, Al Forno has a great patio to enjoy during the summer months.

Chinatown-Handicapped Accessible

We have not been to Chinatown for a while due to handicapped issues. Any suggestions on any restaurant (and cuisine) that we would be able to get in to with a wheelchair?
Looking forward to your replies.

Ogunquit....again...

Thank you for all of your recommendations. Last night's dinner was at Joshua's and was excellent. Fried artichoke hearts and duck pate for appetizers, rack of lamb and the evening's special of 4 cheese and chive angliottis in a tomato cream sauce with sauted winter vegetables, creme brulee for dessert. The signature cocktail for the evening was a blood orange cosmopolitan. Due to unexpected circumstances, we missed breakfast, so we stopped in to get sandwiches at the Village Food Market on Main St. Great little place. Tonight's dinner, possibly Anneke Jans. The sidewalks etc are very messy up here which makes it a bit difficult getting around with a wheelchair and there are more places closed than open. So far a good 'get-away'.

Ogunquit....again...

Hi. We are going to Ogunquit Monday and Tuesday. Monday evening we have reservations for Joshua's in Wells. We are looking for recommendations on what will be open for dinner on Tuesday evening, and also what is open for breakfast. We have done a search on the board but are not sure what is open at this time of year. Must be handicapped accessible.
Thanks for any help.

2 Buck Chuck . . . @ Trader Joes

Yes, our opinion is don't get it...worst headache ever. We went to a graduation party and were served this rocket fuel and both wound up with horrible headaches, and we did not over drink.

Ogunquit, Maine

We are going to Ogunquit for a few days next week and are thinking of eating at Joshua's, MCPerkins Cove and Anneke Jans. Any other restaurant recommendations? Also any recent reviews on our choices? One other question, are any of our choices handicapped friendly?
Thanks for your time,

That chicken joint south of Boston - help?

Funny you should mention it...we had the same thought a few years ago and went looking for it. We believe it is now called Fisher's Chicken House, 450 Wareham St., Middleboro, MA 508-923-0155. It had since been remodeled but they still have the rolls and they still have the chicken and both were what we remember. We still like to stop in on our way back from the Cape.
Let us know if you go.

RI chicken dinner halls?

There are several in the Woonsocket area that still do this type of dinner. Wright's being the busiest of all of them but we find the Village Haven in North Smithfield to be one of the best. Then there is always Savini's in Woonsocket, Coachman's Lodge in Bellingham, MA, and we think the Bocci Club in Woonsocket is also still doing the dinners. Village Haven does have cinnamon rollls as does Ma Glockner's (but Ma Glockner's isn't all you can eat family style).

What's the Word on Bacaro

We have gone to Bacaro a few times in the past couple of months. The service was fine. Although we agree it is not a five star restaurant. The price of the Bolognese is not out of the realm (it happens to be one of our favorite dishes), when you considered the prices at some of the other restaurants.

LUCCIANO'S - DANVERS,MA.

Down Boys!!!
Contessa is for real and we told her about this board. Such a nice welcome you have given her. For those questioning the date, she posted this a week or so ago. I have done a search and cannot find the original post. She also knows her food.
