some good southern cooking off of I-75

I've seen a lot of posts about bbq but was wondering if anyone knew of any places that serve down home southern fare, even if it's not a bbq restaurant. We're roadtripping from MI to FL in a few weeks and just planning our epicurean fare stops ; )

Thanks

any recommendations for a good raw bar on Anna Maria Island or closeby?

We'll be heading to Anna Maria Island next spring (Easter break) and I wondered if anyone had any recommendations for a good raw bar...some fresh oysters at a reasonable price. This is our first trip to AMI so really, I welcome any suggestions on "not to miss" spots. whether it be fine dining or local favorite hole-in-the-wall establishments.

Thanks!

3030 Ocean and Cero in Lauderdale?

We'll be staying at the Marriott Harbor Beach resort in March for a long weekend and won't have a car. Just wondering what everyone thinks of 3030 Ocean which is right at the resort. I'm also wondering if Cero in the Ritz Carlton is in walking distance and if anyone wants to give a report on there as well.

Any other suggestions within walking distance of the Harbor Beach would also be welcome.

Thanks!

Mexican Town restaurants in Detroit open Christmas Eve?

Can anyone tell me if the restaurants in Mexican Town are generally open on Christmas Eve? I'm assuming they are during the day but I'm wondering about later in the evening how late they'll be staying open.

If anyone has any knowledge regarding that, thanks in advance!

which lobster shacks to hit from Boston to Kennebunkport?

We'll be in Boston on Friday, Ogunquit Sat - Sun, and Portsmouth, NH on Monday, flying out of Boston Tuesday night.

We want to hit all the great seafood shacks up and down that way. Any input on which ones you like the best?

Thanks!

best raw bar for oysters in Boston's Waterfront District...?

Wow...I gotta say you've given me some great tips...I loved the menu at Neptune's! We may just make a go at all of them! We arrive in Boston at 8:30 a.m. Friday morning, staying at Marriott Custom House until we leave for Coastal Maine on Saturday. Other than trying to get into Fenway Park on Friday night (bet we don't ; ) we have no plans but to walk around, eat and drink! Thanks for all the great posts...can't wait to start slurping!

Any place in particular? I know the Union Oyster house is noted as a good place but are there any other establishments that share the honor for great oysters?

Thanks!

Nice restaurant in Portsmouth...?

In September, we're going to spend a Fri - Mon...driving up from Boston to Ogunquit/Kennebunkport and we'll certainly hit a good number of local seafood jaunts, lobster shacks, etc. On our last night (Mon.), we'll be staying overnight at Wentworth-by-the-Sea before our flight out of Boston on Tues. I'm thinking that by Monday, we'll want to do a nice sitdown meal in Portsmouth to wrap up our trip. Looks like there are quite a few good restaurants in Portsmouth....does anyone have any views on what's best?

Thanks!

Good spot (good food) for family of 4 near Courtyard Seattle Lake Union....

We'll be arriving in Seattle from Detroit the day before our Alaskan cruise on August 11 and staying at the Courtyard Lake Union. Anyplace for dinner near there that would be appropriate with our two children (ages 6 and 8?) I want good local food, nice atmosphere but not too fancy since we'll have the kids with us. My daughter and I LOVE good Sushi so that, or a good local seafood establishment would be enjoyable.

Thanks in advance!
