Best dinner for 2 at MLife Casinos?

Good morning all. Looking for your ideas on the best dinner at any of the hotels covered by the MLife program. Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, MGM Grand, Signature at MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, THE Hotel, Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur.

Budget isn't much of a concern, getting a great meal is. I'd lean towards getting wagyu ideally, but open to all ideas.

Only have one dinner in town on this trip on a saturday night.

Best Mexican Food in Westchester?

Still wish Ebb Tide hadn't left. Bar Taco is little more than Greenwich people going into big bad Port Chester. The sort that won't walk into 90% of the restaurants in town.

Best Mexican Food in Westchester?

Love Los Gemelos. Originally went because it was one of the few places in Port Chester that was a part of AA's RewardsNetwork. Long since dropped that, but we continue to go multiple times a month.

Indian in lower Westchester

Our favorite Coromandel is Southport although we hear great things about the one in Darien. SoNo was a bit off for us. Been to most but not all of them. We prefer Coromandel when we want a sit down or buffet and Calcutta Wrap and Roll when looking for quick or take out and slightly cheaper.

Rosie's on the River in Port Chester - anyone been there yet?

Just ate here for the second time. Sadly we don't go as often as we'd like.

The service is very very good here. Everyone involved and even half the customers will help sell you on what you ate or take a real interest in if you liked something they were debating.

We have not had a bad meal here yet. The fried calamari is so light and delicate in the breading you really don't need the sauce at all. This to me is the equivalent to pancakes you don't need syrup, a sign of top end in my eyes. I have had the pumpkin ravioli and the short ribs myself and my wife has had the wild mushroom ravioli both times and I do believe she'd rate it among her favorites anywhere.

The bar end is more casual and there will be people to talk to if that's your thing. Drinks are fairly priced for the area and quite nice.

I know its hard to read this sometimes but we really do love the place.

I had never been to it when it was Pasta Per Voi although I am told and is confirmed in the thread it is the same owner.

Foodie in Venice for 8 nights(Costello neighborhood), need help...

When you say Al Covo do you mean Ristorante Al Covo at Campiello della Pescaria, Castello, 3968, 30122 Venezia, Italy or the Al Covo at Calle del Figher, 4365, 30122 Venezia, Italy.

Also, I'm rather surprised by the amount of tourist guide web pages I find one of these on when searching google.

Update on Italian Restaurants in Westchester

I'm a fan of Piero's in Port Chester on Regent Street. Although not the cheapest place its always done well for us.

Banh Mi or not Banh Mi? That is the question.

Funny. I was exactly like this about these places until I got married. I first went to the CCF with my wife and she teases me nonstop even though we've mostly stopped going for cost reasons that I liked it and it was a chain.

I used to be over the top about that. Now, i go wherever something good can be found.

What to eat during three days in Sydney?

I know I'm late to this party, but here are my suggestions with the assumption it is your first visit.

I personally didn't like much about Lord Nelson's. It was a 1 and done beer place. Nice to have been once but I do not return.

There is good food in the Rocks in my opinion. I really liked Baroque and the food at the Observer. One is a real meal and the other pub food.

The Observer is by far our favorite Rocks pub and always the suggestion of our local friends.

Yellow in Potts Point is a don't miss for lunch dinner or even just dessert.

A lunch at the fish market is a must do.

The Watson's Bay Hotel for a lunch is a must do event. Not so much for the food although usually good, but the views and the environment.

Fratteli Paradiso also in Potts Point was quite nice.

Liana's out in Parramatta is definitely worth the trip.

Hope you had/have a great trip.

Batali and Bastianich store to open in Port Chester

I agree with food4ever16 on the aspect of cleaning up that area. Every bit of improvement helps. I do hope Kneaded Bread comes out of this strongly and have chosen not to try the Tarry Lodge based on reviews and the menu available.

But a store that will bring more people in to town and spending more money here can not be a bad thing in my mind.

647 Dinner Club in BsAs

Hi All.
I've read and heard a LOT about this place. I'm heading back to BsAs in a week for my now only yearly visit and wanted to fit this in. However because of the nature of my visit most of my funds have been allocated elsewhere in the weekend with stops in El Establo, Rio Alba, El Trapiche, La Brigada San Telmo and Desnivel.

I have Tuesday and Wednesday nights available and needed to know what I should consider for a budget for going to 647 if I choose it over Pura Tierra. No where yet have I seen an approximation of costs for it.

Thanks in advance.

Best Milkshake- Fairfield Cty- Very Thick so that it takes

How would one compare these places to the Vanilla shake at Burgers Shakes and Fries? I just had that last night and must say it is just how I used to make them.

Good luck at the hospital. One of my favorites too...

Need lunch suggestions in Rye Brook and close by

This is where I get my pies in the area. Is pretty good for pizza. I've not had anything else here though with plenty of outdoor seating.

Perfect list as I just moved my office to rye brook as well.

calling all Queens experts!

The empanadas place right near Laziza is at 25-51A Steinway St. The much better location is out Northern Blvd at 84-17 Northern Blvd. Papas Empanadas is the name.

I did enjoy all the recs made on here. Thank you to everyone that helped us out.

Not sure how many of the group will attend this part of the weekend. But total in town for this is over 30 now.

Trains and busses are the preferred method so far.

To clarify a little.

We are so far heading to Telly's Taverna for dessert on a Saturday about 4 in the afternoon.

We want 3 or so cuisines to sample before hand around Queens with the details given above.

Chaophaya Thai is back!!

BYOB? Good to know. Am checking this place out Sunday. Do they have an online menu? Or can anyone recommend a good place to get a drink after that is near?

Great for a girl I am dating

Another of my favorites is Zucchero e Pomodori. 2nd Avenue between 74 and 75. Nothing outlandish but really good food and a good atmosphere for being with a date.

Great for a girl I am dating

How is Via Emelia? I was going to use it as a first date but we didn't make it to dinner that night.

To answer the other points. Frank is great. But it is a bit loud. I do and will still use it for dates though. I prefer it to Max personally.

Finally went to Shake Shack

I stopped by here for the first time last week.

Had a shack stack. I really enjoyed it and would consider it a very good burger. I personally like the burger joint at LPM better for the burger but you really are getting the scene here as well.

The fries were ok, as i had the cheese fries. But they certainly were not horrible as I've read in places.

Virage - for group dinner?

Hi all.
I am wondering how Virage is for a group dinner. All the reviews I see here are regarding brunch and desserts.
