Yikes, sorry I missed the earlier thread! Thanks for directing me to it...I'm relatively new to the site and should have checked more carefully before posting.

48" gas (dual-fuel) range: Wolf vs FiveStar vs Thermador vs Viking vs Dacor

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, we don't have room for the 60". But I'm wondering if people with the 48" dual fuel Wolf have been happy with it. Lots of these posts are from several years ago and I am wondering if the newer models have the same kinks as the old. If anyone who has installed a Wolf recently could chime in it would be much appreciated!

48" gas (dual-fuel) range: Wolf vs FiveStar vs Thermador vs Viking vs Dacor

Also remodeling a kitchen and am considering all the options in the 48" dual fuel range. What do people think of Thermador vs. Wolf? Pros/cons? I'm having a lot of trouble figuring this out but am more drawn to the Wolf. People seem to be strongly in one camp or the other. I currently have a 17-year-old Dacor which cracked (but still works) and it cooks well. The knocking stories I've heard about the Wolf sound awful--is that just a "breaking in" period and does it fade with time?

Very helpful replies! Thank you so much. We're sticking with the Stafford and are looking forward to it. It really does sound fabulous.

Food at the Stafford Hotel, London

We will be in London for Christmas, staying at the Stafford Hotel. We're considering having Christmas Lunch at the Stafford but it's rather expensive. Can anyone comment on the quality of the food at the Stafford? We've never been there. Any other suggestions about places to have Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day dinner? We've heard that the only option will be hotel restaurants because everything else will be closed.

Good restaurant between BWI and Silver Spring

Check out the Ironbridge Wine Company, near Columbia. It's a little out of the way, but it's absolutely fantastic. It's in between Baltimore and DC and the location might be perfect for your purposes.

Good Artisan Bread Bakeries?

Atwater's in Baltimore is good--in Belvedere Square.
