NY Foodies visiting

Thanks for your reply zook. We were at Casa D'Angelo a month ago with another couple, after a number of people recommended it. I can't begin to tell you what a bad experience it was from the moment we sat down until we left. The food, service just everything. Obviously there was some problem, as it always gets great reviews. We were all so upset, that the other couple wrote a letter, an actual letter, to the owner who never responded. Don't know if he ever got it of course. Maybe at some point we'll try again, but there are a lot more places to try first. Love Abe and Louie's, but if you saw my reply to another post, our friends are not big meat eaters.

We've been at 32 East a few times and really like it. Like Pinon but feel the same way as you do gblcsw. We like City Fish Market as well but we're going to Truluck's the next night. Loved Abe & Louies but our friends are not big meat eaters.
Thank you both for your replies.

Need some suggestions for Boca area. Friends coming down and we want to take them to good places. Made reservations so far in Delray at 32 East, in Boca at Truluck's and Seasons 52 in Boca. Any other suggestions? Would like to stay away from Delray on the weekend. Thanks

Rafaelle's Boca Raton

Does any one know about Rafaelle's in Boca? We used to go there and loved it but stopped going because it was always empty for some reason. Especially when we bring out of towners we like to have a more bustling place to bring them. Is it still open? Any info? Thanks

Not too pricey restaurants and breakfast places

Won't have a car. Just don't want to spend $100 a night on dinner if possible.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Not too pricey restaurants and breakfast places

We'll be in Vegas for 3 nights next month staying at the Vdara hotel. Can anyone tell me some good restaurants nearby that won't break the bank as well as breakfast places that aren't too expensive. We don't drink by the way.
Thank you.

Trader Joe's Canned Smoked Trout - Back in May!

I think I recall paying over $3 a can a few months ago on Long Island. Would there be such a difference in price?

LI Wedding Halls - What is a Foodie to do?

We just had our sons wedding reception at The Metropolitan in Glen Cove. Friends were calling to tell us how wonderful the food was. I didn't eat any of the hor dourves as I was busy greeting people, but the dinner was wonderful. Ask for Eileen Long. She was very helpful.

Lunch - Southern Westchester

Meeting friends next week in Westchester which is a central meeting point, but don't know where to eat. Met at Piper's Kilt last time which was good. Don't particularly want a chain. Loved X20 in Yonkers, but they don't want to spend the bucks. Not too expensive, casual. Any suggestions? Thanks

Cafe Toscano - Jericho, NY

We were at the above restaurant for the first time last Saturday night. Our friends from NJ came with us and we were looking forward to our evening. When we arrived, there was a large table in the bar room so we opted for the quieter room on the left. We noticed there was one waiter in the whole room. We chatted for a while and then started looking around for someone to take our drink order. Took quite a long time to get the waiter to come over,he was very nice. We finally got our drinks after about 15 minutes served by someone else. Then had our dinner orders taken after a long period of time by yet another person. We weren't in a hurry, but it took a long time to get the appetizers and another person served us. My husband needed a knife and was trying to wave down anyone, a waiter, bus boy, hostess to no avail. Finally a guy a the next table gave us one of there's they weren't using. They said they were upset over the service as well.
When they brought the entrees, one of them was not what was ordered but he ate it anyway to avoid waiting g-d knows how much longer. When we asked for the check a gum chewing blonde came over gave us the check without a pen after giving her our credit cards. Had to go back to get the pen as we waited yet more time. We were embarrassed our friends came all the way from NJ at our recommendation. Will never go aback to Cafe Toscano in Jericho.
