Citrine - Redwood City

I went there yesterday with the BF and it was just okay. Perhaps we didn't order the right thing. I liked the decor of the restaurant and will try to post pictures later tonight that I took (loved that there was a handle on the table so I could hang my purse!).

I had thai lemongrass soup which was oily, and had way too many carrots that were too big for the soup. the chicken was pretty sparse.

i also had the asian chicken salad - the peanut-ginger dressing was a tad overpowering. the menu said asian vegetables but I found maybe one or two slices of a red bell pepper - everything else was greens and peanuts.

The BF's margherita pizza that claims had a "savory" tomato sauce was spicy. Very spicy. Since the BF doesn't care much for spicy, he didn't care much for the pizza.

Otherwise the restaurant was clean, the bathrooms were clean, the service was okay for the concept. If I go back, I'll have to try something else.

Napa - No Reservations?

I'm a huge fan of Zuzu in downtown Napa. The Boonfly Cafe at Carneros Inn is great - try the doughnuts!

Have you thought about making reservations viz Opentable? I'll bet most of the restaurants are on there....would be easier than calling.

Recommendations Peninsula Anniversary Dinner

If you like Indian, you could go to Amber India and order the Amber Dinner. It's well priced for dinner, comes with good options and well within your price range.

italian in palo alto?

the BF and i are looking for an alternative to our favorite italian place in palo alto which is osteria. we love it but it's sometimes hard to get a reservation especially when we decide last minute we want to go...which is usually the case.

i haven't yet tried other italian places in the area - or surrounding area for that matter. any recs?

the BF is threatening with olive garden so i hope to find a #2 soon!

columbus, ohio in may..

fantastic. are there any places near the ohio expo center? i think we're going to get tickets to see corteo one night which will probably be our one night of dressing up!

my aunt and uncle who are both osu alums have given us a few places to check out for eating but they tend to be more of the steak and potatoes and less on the foodie side.

Help! Need a place for a business dinner bet SF and Palo Alto

Or you can try the one in Burlingame. Both are fine - but if the client is in Palo Alto, perhaps that would be the better choice.

Palo Alto and nearby

you *have* to make a reservation if you go to osteria though. even on weeknights, they won't have an open table until 9 or 10 PM.

i love the place - my favorite is the veal with cheese and spinach.

columbus, ohio in may..

a friend and i will be in columbus over memorial day weekend and we're looking for recs on places to eat for all meals - breakfast, lunch, dinner. we're into good food but don't want to spend too much. she's a vegetarian and so i'm thinking steakhouses aren't probably going to cut it for the four days that we're there.

it would also be great to get fun bar or nightspot places to hang out. we're not the type to get all dressed up, but we do like to go out and have fun!

thanks in advance-
