Food recs near Fontainebleau, one nice, one casual

Just found out I get to stay at the Fontainebleau for a conference with my husband, a rare getaway from our two young daughters. I'd love recommendations for a nice dinner and for a more casual one. I'm more interested in the food than in the scene. Thanks for any suggestions.

Anna Maria Island - never been, need recs!

We love AMI and will be going for the fifth year in a row with our kids this spring. Highly recommend the Waterfont for lunch or dinner, and Slim's Place for dinner. Grab breakfast or lunch at Rudy's Subs. Hope that Rod and Reel is up and running by April. We love having lunch there and a sneaking a cold draft while the kids are at the beach with Grandma and Grandpa. This is not the best area for "artisanal" foods but the Publix that you'll pass when you get on the island has served us just fine. I second the Starfish rec!

I recall that there is a farmer's market but don't remember which day; I think it was in Bradenton.

Going to be in NY for Thanksgiving. Suggestions for Chinatown or kid-friendly East or West Village

Going to be in NY for Thanksgiving. I've heard Chinatown gets crowded on Thanksgiving. What if we went early, like 3? Otherwise, any suggestions for kid-friendly inexpensive East or West Village?

30th Birthday Dinner--where should I send my sister and her boyfriend?

My little sister lives in Knoxville and is about to turn 30. I'd love to get her a gift certificate for dinner with her boyfriend. Any suggestions for someplace fun with great food but not too fancy?

Casual restaurant (with 2 little kids) near St. Pete Airport?

Anyone have a recommendation for someplace to have a quick lunch between airport pickups? I posted before re: seafood and people recommended Crab Shack but I've read SO much negative stuff and I'm hesitant to start out our week-long family vacation with a bad meal ...

Casual seafood (with two kids under 3) near St. Pete Airport?

OK, the Crab Shack may be just right. Thanks, everyone. I'd read some negative stuff online about it but we do want super casual and quick so I'm sure it will be perfect.

Casual seafood (with two kids under 3) near St. Pete Airport?

Thought about Guppy's or Keegan's in Indian Rocks but it looks like it's about 20 mins from St Pete airport, right? That might make it a little tight timewise. Maybe better to try to find someplace between Tampa Airport (where we're flying into) and St. Pete (where my sister is landing 2 hours later)?

Casual seafood (with two kids under 3) near St. Pete Airport?

We're heading to FL with my family in March and will have time for lunch between airport pick-ups. Any recommendations near St. Pete airport so we can have a bite while we wait for my sister's plane?

Modern Apizza in New Haven--how long wait on a Saturday at noon?

Planning to go to Modern tomorrow, Saturday. If we arrive at noon, can anyone estimate how long the wait will be? (We'll have a 2 year old with us...) I see that they open at 11. Would it be much better if we got there at 11:30 am?

Any lunch or dinner ideas near Langham with 1 year old in tow?

Heading to Boston next week for a conference with my husband and will mostly be on my own with our 1 year old. Any recs for lunch/dinner near the Langham? Would love Chinatown recs especially for lunch. Looking for cheap and quick. Thanks!

Donuts near Bethel/Danbury?

Anyone have a rec for good donuts near Bethel or Danbury? Just moved here and need a fix!

Moving to Bethel CT

We'll be in the house in 10 days. Maybe we'll go there to celebrate when we finish unpacking! Thanks again.

Moving to Bethel CT

Thanks so much! We've had meat from Caraluzzi's and were happy with it, but haven't tried the seafood yet. Glad to hear it's good. We have been to Mexicali Rose and loved it--went there when we were thinking of moving to Newtown, and will definitely go back.

Moving to Bethel CT

Any recommendations for butcher or fish store in Bethel or Danbury CT? Also, we tried Pancho's and Gringo's in Bethel and thought it was pretty bad--any better, more authentic Mexican in the area?

Coffee in Norwalk/Westport area

Any suggestions on where to buy good beans? Not Stew's. Thanks! By the way, we found a terrific place in Bethel called Redding Roasters. Great coffee! Too bad it's 12 bucks a pound.

St. Louis breakfast

Visiting the in-laws this weekend and would love to get them out of their Chris's rut. Any suggestions for a good casual breakfast? St. Louis Hills area would be great. Thanks.
