Black Currant Nectar

YES! OMG that was awesome.

Black Currant Nectar

Does anyone know where I could find Black Currant Nectar? I've tried Whole Foods in Boston and Cambridge, Russo's, and Williams Sonoma. Has anyone seen it in any local stores?

Butcher, Grocery, & Farm Stands on Outer Cape

I rented a house in North Truro for a week, and am desperately looking for places to buy provisions for the week. Can anyone recommend a good butcher, a grocer with a large selection of high quality produce, or any farm stands that sell local produce? Thanks!

Best Chinese BBQ

Heading to Chinatown tonite to pick up some BBQ to go. What's the best place to get it?

Vintage Wine Source?

Could anyone direct me to a good supplier of vintage and rare wines in Boston? My brother's 30th birthday is coming up and I want to buy him a unique wine with the same vintage as the year of his birth (1978). I'm not price sensitive, just want to get something really great. Reccomendations for specific wines are also welcome.



Pops in the South End. What a joke. I don't care if it's cheap, I thought the food was awful. The Sambal Chicken Wings that everyone was raving about were unseasoned and glopped with a cloying sauce. The hangar steak and french fries were also not seasoned correctly.

Chacarero Back Bay?

I heard a rumor the other day that Chacarero may be opening a Back Bay location. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

Sunday Brunch to Impress

Boston hound visiting DC the weekend of 12/15 and need a brunch spot on Sunday to impress. Price is no object.

Also a Saturday dim sum suggestion would be helpful as well. Thanks!

Shanghai Noodles

Does anyone know of a restaurant in Chinatown that serves Shanghai Noodles at lunch? I haven't been able to find one yet. An address would be helpful if you have a suggestion.

Client Lunch in Providence, RI

It looks like they're not open for lunch.

Client Lunch in Providence, RI

I am meeting a client for lunch in Providence on Friday who is more of a foodie than I am. I'm not familiar with the city. Can someone help me out? Price is not an object.

Portland Maine close to Portland Harborview Hotel

Hi Everyone!

I'm going to Portland from Boston for the weekend for my boyfriend's birthday at staying at the Portland Harborview Hotel. I made reservations on Saturday night at Fore Street on a friends recommendation.

I was hoping someone could suggest a good lunch spot that's on the water and within walking distance to our hotel. This is our first trip to Portland and we're really excited.
