Anniversary Eats...

Do every year I end up right here again as my wife and I suprise each other with an Anniversary trip... Chowhound has NEVER steered my wrong...
This year might be a bit tougher than my last though...as I am looking at going to Eureka CA...a small town on the far northern coast of CA...

I'm looking for Lunch and Dinner ideas that are within about a 30-60 minute drive from the town and would really appreciate any help that can be given!!!
Thanks so much!!!

South of Aptos in La Selva Beach

Heading to the area in February for our anniversary which is ALWAYS centered around food... Every year I start a thread looking for the best places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Every year I am rewarded with amazing choices that never steer me wrong.
So...putting it out there again for year 21....
Looking for places for all three meals of the day (not to mention other yummy things like coffee, desserts, bread, cheese, wine, and beer)..
Thanks so much for all of your help!!

New Orleans for our 20th Wedding Anniversary

Hi All...

Never been to New Orleans before (I'm a CA boy) and I'm in the beginning phases of doing some planning...It will be a winter trip and we will arrive on a Friday mid day and depart on Tuesday morning. That gives me 4 dinners and 4 lunches.

So...I need some help here....any suggestions to other threads and/or names of restaurants would be terrific!

Here is what we like---I'm a vegetarian...but do eat fish...my wife eats everything except fish (she does eat shellfish) We love Asian...we love fusion...we love experiencing new things and foods...We enjoy local’s types of places as much as the “must go to” top restaurants…

I'm open to any price frame....the best food is sometimes the least expensive....although...I'm also looking for some fancy dinner ideas too...as we will be celebrating!!

Thanks for all the help upfront! I’ve used Chowhound for my 10 of our 20 anniversary trips and I have NEVER been steered wrong….

We are staying at Hotel Le Marais in the French Quarter...and not sure if I'm gonna need/want a car or can just get by with Public transportation....looking into that too!!

Here is what I have so far...can anyone add to it or (even better) comment on what I have thus far??

Dinner ideas:
Stella! ( I hear it's great but not really "New Orleans food")
Bayona
Galatoire's
Restaurant August
Commander's Palace
Muriel's
Galatoire's
Emeril's
Clancy's

Lunch ideas:
Acme
Felix's
Johnny's
Napoleon House

Hi All...

Never been to New Orleans before (I'm a CA boy) and I'm in the beginning phases of doing some planning...It will be a winter trip and we will arrive on a Thursday mid day and depart on Tuesday morning. That gives me 5 dinners and 4 lunches.

Our anniversary trips (we take turns planning for each other every year and keep the trip a surprise until the last minute) is always LARGELY based around food... And at this point I've done NO other pre-planning at all...not till the food part is in place!! :) And yes…it’s my year to plan.

So...I need some help here....any suggestions to other threads and/or names of restaurants would be terrific!
