I know you folks can rec for vegas [moved from L.A. board]

Live in San Diego, travel to Vegas couple times a year. Trust the LA board for recs, San Diego has no board and maybe no taste; I'm
going to get yelled at for that statement. Know Bellagio restaurants, but want to explore, no trendy, no Emeril, no Bobby Flay, just no name great food. Help.

santa barbara wine??

If you will be in Santa Barbara, plan to do a tasting at Santa Barbara Winery. It is right in downtown Santa Barbara. Do not be put off by it's simple warehouse exterior. All their wines are excellent and well priced. My cousin,a wine industry professional, even joined their wine club, the first and only wine club she ever joined. You will not be disappointed. Google their website for further info.ENJOY!

Suggest a restaurant in Little Italy

Thanks for the tip. I now know Little Italy is a tourist mecca, but perhaps Benito's II will prove a good choice, after all when dining in Manhattan even Long Islanders are tourists.

San Diego needs a listing under California board

San Diego is full of foodies who would love to compare food finds.
We are really not a suburb of LA.

Suggest a restaurant in Little Italy

I will be visiting family in NYC. Need an Italian restaurant in Little Italy to take my Long Island relatives to. Some of them are Italian and know good food. Don't need to impress them, no place trendy, don't need to see tourists or movie stars-just great food and good service. Please help.
