Denver suggestions

I need your advice on whether or not Cherry Cricket or Steuben's is a worthwhile visit. Also, we will be visiting the Cherry Creek Village area..any worthwhile restaurants there? I'd appreciate suggestions for b'fst , lunch and dinner. We went to a Food Network rec. for lunch today and were disappointed.. The Bagel Deli and Restaurant..just very fair.

Thanks for your help!!

Wow, went to Danny's Pizza tonight...AMAZING Ceasar salad and pizza! Thanks for the recommendation. Never would have stopped there,if you hadn't told me. With a name like "Danny's"' it's not an Italian name like Vito's or Angelo's..who would have guessed. We decided to go early next time or sit outside, because of tight quarters. Wll definitely go again!

MVY Dissapointment and Pleasant Surprise

I was just in Menemsha with my husband visiting family. They always take us for a special treat to the Beach Plum restaurant, which in the past has been wonderful,but was terrible from food to lousy service this time. We heard they have a new chef and are training new staff, but no excuse to charge so much and get inferior quality food and such small amt. with wait staff that are not professional.

Instead, I recommend the Chilmark Tavern! We were there for the first time and found the food to be amazing, nice ambiance(not a bar atmosphere, but lovely decor and fine dining)and polished friendly staff. I highly recommend the onion rings..thin and crispy, not greasy and the mussels are local and done with a wonderful sauce that I wanted to drink out of the bowl.

Fresh Market Buffet at Hard Rock Casino Tampa

Almost afraid to ask, but is the seafood buffet on Friday night worthwhile? Is it worth the $35.00?

Best Seafood in SF?

We had incredible ciopinno at Scomma's on the wharf!! Full of seafood and wonderful flavor..enough to share! From what I've read, not many Chow members think much of the food on Fisherman's Wharf. I think I have a fairly discriminating palette, and I would highly recommend it.
P.S clam chowder is great there also!

Mario's was very disappointing. I ordered something and the waiter gave me something similar, because they were out of what I ordered, without even asking me:( It also, was not very good.

Response to Some Asheville Fav. Recommendations

My husband and I are visiting for the first time and eating our way through Asheville..having a great time!
Tupelo Honey is a gem! Sweet potato pancakes are scrumptious.

Grove Park Inn was a pleasant surprise. I read many negative comments about their food, but the seafood buffet was very good. Some dishes were better then others, but overall very well done and a good price.They have a caramel sauce that is too die for. The chef actually sent me the recipe!! A slice of the pecan pie with their homemade vanilla ice cream and their decadent caramel sauce poured over the top mmm!

Fiores Ristorante Toscana was a disappointment..nothing special about our meals.

We have reservations at the Admiral Monday..hard to get in there..must be good!
Thanks for your help!
