Looking for places around Concordville-Brandywine area

High Street, Avalon, Gilmores - all in West Chester - walk around do some shopping and go eat a great meal. Sovana Bistro, Catherines in Unionville - great food - all mentioned are BYO. Go and buy some microbrews in 6 packs from DE and take along. McKenzies, Iron Hill all have decent beer selections. Whip is nice - other than ambiance - i'd skip Four Dogs. Go to the Drafting Room in Exton - good food - tons of beer. Or to Monk's in Philadelphia - that's a tavern with beer! Victory Brewing in Downingtown - good local beer.

Philly Chows Visiting Annapolis - HELP

Thanks for the suggestions. I think we ate at Tsunami the last time we were there. I wish we were 20 something - more like 30 something. Lemongrass sounds good. Weather should be nice - we can put our name in, walk around, have a drink. Any chance there's some to die for restaurant in the area that we should try? Maybe not more than a 1/2 hour drive? Someone mentioned Trattoria Alberto in Glen Burnie - any thoughts?

Scoogi's Classic Italian

Been there a couple of times this summer. Food was good. The service was so-so. It gets very busy on the weekends. They have outside seating which is really nice.

Buffet Brunch Suggestions - Philly or Burbs

My parents love Sunday buffet brunches, and we always go to the Radnor Hotel (which if you haven't gone - it's awesome - although not inexpensive). We're looking for somewhere new to go for my mom's birthday. It can either be in the city, Del Co. or Chester Co. Any suggestions?

Tinto's Chef Menu

A must get - the Piquillos Rellenos - crab stuffed peppers - to die for. All of the cheese and cured meats are wonderful. No matter what you order you won't be disappointed.

Bread at L'Angolo

More than likely it's from one of the South Philly bakeries - Sarcones, Cascia - best thing to do - call and ask.

Anniversary dinner in the suburbs?

Catherine's in Unionville. The corner of Routes 82 and 162. The food is consistently excellent, the service is attentive,and it's cozy. On top of all that - it's BYOB. In the summer it has a great patio on which to have dinner. You won't be disappointed.
