Two days in Bangor

Great info, powermd! Our two lunches will hopefully be Paddy Murphy's and Friar's. Think we'll have better luck at Friar's on Monday over Sunday, correct? We'll have one dinner on our own, so if Fiddleheads is not our "interview" dinner, we'll be sure to reserve the week before. Thanks for the tip on Nocturnum, as well. Perfect. Still 3 weeks away :-(

Thanks! Not sure if we'll make it over to Ellsworth, but if we do, Cleonice sounds lovely. Paella! Yummm!

Two days in Bangor

My husband and I will be in the area for a job interview (his), and would like to check out some of the restaurants in the Greater Bangor area. Maybe a diner and a coffee house for breakfasts, a pub-ish place for lunch (sandwich or salad and a beer), and a nice place for dinner along the lines of a possible date night location. Any of the outlying towns are welcome. We'll be heading down to the coast after these couple of days and are pretty familiar with that area.

Also....best place to do weekly grocery shopping?

Thanks in advance!

Binghamton Groceries

Thanks! I have checked Wegmans with no luck. Actually tried Man Nam a couple of weeks ago and was pleased, but didn't think to ask them. I'll check out Lonnys and Kims. Thanks again!

Monday Night Football near the Omni Pittsburgh

Wow...less than 3 hours, but thought I'd try. Meeting a friend at the Omni. Any thoughts on a good place to watch Monday Night Football?

Thanks!

Looking for good ice cream and hot dog joints [Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Uniontown Areas]

You should check out D's in Regent Square. Great dogs and atmosphere. Incredible selection of beers, too!

'Burgh Getaway Dinner

I am looking for a dinner spot out of town that has outdoor seating or a nice view and would be a good place for my husband and I to relax and feel like we're "away". Not seeking fancy, just comfortable. We are on the east side, but would travel. We have a babysitter for our 1 year old twins....and that NEVER happens. I'm picturing an old farmhouse.

Wilkinsburg

Has anyone been to Jean's Southern Cuisine in Wilkinsburg? We're thinking about the Sunday buffet. Kid-friendly? Also...same general area....there is a BBQ place on Braddock, just north of Penn. Looks like a hole in the wall, but those are usually the best!!

Sushi in Pittsburgh

So....we're NEW to Pittsburgh, NEW parents, have a NEW babysitter and looking for a NEW favorite sushi place. Tasty fish is more important than atmosphere. I really, really , really want to sit my fanny down, have some sake and chill out. Any ideas?

Braised White Beans with Chard

Okay, okay... I admit it. I couldn't resist it and I made it tonight, but I made enough that I can still stick the left-overs in a caserol dish and serve them tomorrow. I like it. A lot. I used less salt, though not of the kosher variety. I added a little ground cayenne while I was cooking the onions and garlic (... Oh, and speaking of garlic, I added a clove or two, but I always do that... I love it!), but other than that this is an amazing dish that cooks fast and is very easy to make. I can't wait to start making variations of it.... I'm picturing it with beer... Or with heavy cream.... Lots of possibilities. Aida, you have done well. Pat yourself on the back!!!

Lobster or Snow Crabs over an open fire

We will be camping up in Nova Scotia and wondered if it's possible to cook either over a wood fire or open charcoal pit? Any ideas?

Camping through Nova Scotia/Cape Breton

My hubby and I are heading out in a couple of weeks to drive, camp and eat our way through NS. I've made notes from lots of good posts on this board, but maybe someone can help me out with a couple of good markets to pick up our cooler food. Also, we love little, out-of-the-way "locals" joints. We haven't come up with an itinerary of any kind, so feel free to cover it all! Thanks!
