Visitor To Lake Quinault in Washington

Thanks for the reply. Neah Bay is up in the Northwest corner of the state, about two hours from Lake Quinault. We are staying at the lake for four days and then we are going to Sekiu (about 30 miles from Neah Bay). Again I appreciate your comments. It is as I expected.

Visitor To Lake Quinault in Washington

I'm visiting Lake Quainault the last few days of July and the first few days of August. Is there some restaurant in that area of the Olympics where I might bring ten people for a unusually good meal (it does not have to be fancy, only clean and good). Needless to say I am not a Northwest member but belong to the a Mid-Atlantic Chow Hounds.

G&M Restaurant Crab Cakes

Whenever I need a "Crab Cake Fix", I stop at G&M Restaurant in Linthicum, Maryland. For the past two visits I noticed a significant change in the Crab Cakes. They seem to be using more filler now and it has effected the cakes taste. Has anyone else noticed this or is it my imagination.

Old Town Alexandria For Lunch

Several years ago Chowhounds suggested that Vermilion was a good choice for lunch in the Old Town when we took day trips to the area. Since that suggestion we have gone there for lunch eight times, and we still like it. There however has to be some other really good restaurants for lunch in the Old Town. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Baltimore - Local Ribs, Tomatoes and Corn

I appreciate the thought but we recently downsized and we now live in a stack pack (no BBQ) so we have to go out for "a taste of Maryland". The question is, where to go?

Baltimore - Local Ribs, Tomatoes and Corn

We are having visitors over the next eight weeks from Oregon, Washington State, New England and Germany. Certainly crabs are Maryland and I think I know who does crabs well. I also would like our visitor to enjoy Maryland tomatoes and corn and ribs seem to go with them. What are the Baltimore Chowhounds recommendations where we can take these visitors to get a taste of Maryland. To give everyone a sense of our geography, we live in Timonium but, needless to say, we have wheels. Any suggestions are appreciated.

We are three male OAP's (Old Age Pensioners) coming to Baltimore City to visit the Maryland Historical Society, The Civil War Museum (President Street Station) and the Fells Point Maritime Museum. We will be in the Fells Point/Canton area around lunch time. Would someone recommend a nice restaurant for the three of use to stop and have lunch (not a “Mickey D’s” not a Charleston either). A nice sit down lunch. Any advice is appreciated.

A Nice Place For Dinner North Of I495 & South of I70

It will shortly be my son and daughter-in-laws 25th Anniversary and my wife and I have invited them and their son and our other son and his wife to dinner. I thought of The King’s Contrivance. One of my sons mentioned The King’s Contrivance has change hands and the meals run “hot and cold” (sometime good, sometime not so good). I know the North end of the State but have little or no knowledge of the area from the Washington Beltway to Interstate 70. Any recommendations for a really nice family dinner. All suggestions are appreciated.

New Restaurant In Hamden (Baltimore)

Their kitchen is fully openned but their menu is restricted now to a meat, fish ans a vegetable dinner each night. I believe you can go online and check the menu each night. The night we went all had different dinners and there were no complaints.....

New Restaurant In Hamden (Baltimore)

The ex-Executive Chef at the Harbor Court Restaurant, Galen Sampson and his wife Bridget have opened a new restaurant, The Dogwood, located at 911 W. 36th Street (same location as the old Mamie's Café). They are starting with a fairly simple menu and hope to build on it, but do not let my description of simple dissuade your from trying this "new jewel" in Hamden. It's worth a trip. The preparation and presentation are worthy of the best restaurants.
Their web address is: www.dogwooddeli.com

Places To Dine

I'll be taking my wife for her birthday to Boston for five nights in a few weeks. We are staying at Copley Square and we love to walk (except in sleet, but cold does not bother us). Can anyone suggest two or three nice places for dinner. I would prefer no tie but I do wear jackets (I can wear a tie if the restaurant is worth the effort:-)). We have no preference in foods. It can be American, Italian, Greek, seafood or not. We like a nice ambiance and good food and wine. All advice is appreciated.

Annapolis Restaurants

A week ago I brought some foreign visitors to Annapolis. Were intending to have a nice late lunch. To my disappointment the restaurant at the end of city docks is under new ownership (a Maryland chain seafood restaurant). Can anyone tell me some good restaurants in Annapolis.
