Dining Suggestions around the Delano Hotel

Wonderful, thank you all for your suggestions. Plan on going to Front Porch and Icebox for breakfast. There are a Bond St. and BLT Steak in LA so will want to try something different. I believe the only night we do not have plans is Monday and I think Talula is closed that night..bummer...What type of food is Sardinia? Sounds like drinks for sure at Setai and S & W...Also, have seen some post for Casa Tua, any thoughts?

Dining Suggestions around the Delano Hotel

Hello. I am staying at the Delano hotel in Miami next week. I would love a few suggestions for a restaurant somewhat nearby. Price isn't too much of a consideration and was just looking for something that overall was really wonderful. Am open for any type of restaurante, i.e. seafood, steak, etc.. Also, is the Blue Door a nice experience at the hotel? Thank you very much for any help. Oh, a good wine list is also a bonus!

Clambox? First time visiting Boston

Hello. I am heading out to Boston this week for the first time. Coming out for Los Angeles and I am staying in Ipswich. My friends cannot wait to take me to the Clambox. What should I expect and are there any other rec's. Absolutely cannot wait for a lobster roll! Thank you.

Best Wine List

The Pacific Dining Car has an extremely reasonably priced yet extensive list. Though the prices seem to have been marked up a bit more over the last 18 months or so.

Santa Monica Seafood A.K.A. 10th St. Cafe

Does anyone know exactly what is going on here? 10th St. Cafe opens today in Santa Monica (the old Carl's Jr. place) and wondering if anyone went to a "soft opening" or anything?

Turley wines opinions?

This post is very timely. Earlier this year I purchased my small allocation (6 bottles of zin different vineyards). I just received my fall allocation last week (16 bottles) which I plan to purchase. Last night I had the 2004 petite syrah hayne's vineyard for the 3rd time. I absolutely love that wine! and additionally a fan of their zins. That's it, just my 2 cents.
