Need a pre - Miami Man triathlon restaurant near Dadeland Mall for Saturday night

Hi - we will be spending most of the day travelling - so would love to find something near our hotel (which is near the Dadeland Mall).

We would prefer something with a fairly wide menu (ie - that might have pasta and fish and salads) - not 5 star ambience (or prices) - but something local and most importantly - a good chef...

Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks.

Bermuda Rent A Chef?

We will be going to Bermuda for the first time - 2 families with kids from ages 9 - 19. We would like to hire a chef for an evening to cook for us at the house we have rented - any suggestions? If location matters - we will be staying on Wharf Drive near the Ferry Terminal (far west side of the island). Also - any restaurants in that location that we must visit - either with or without the kids? Really care more about great food rather than fancy decor... Also - any local fresh fruit/veg markets or amazing bakeries for bread on that part of the island? Thanks!

First trip to Maine - but huge Chowhound believer - thanks everyone for your posts - eating our way around the globe!!

Where to eat in Charleston

Totally disagree with the review on Jestine's - been there twice and don't know why bothered trying it again... For "local" try Hominy Grill or SNOB, for seafood try Fish or Hanks (and don't miss their banana cream pie)

Road Trip - Tampa to New Orleans

Taking a week road trip - only back roads - no chain hotels / restaurants / shops are allowed. Would love any suggestions - good food / fun atmosphere / local flavor.. Thank you! (Also if you have any favorite towns / attractions... trying to find the world's largest ball of string rather than seeing 50 museums in 3 days...)

St. Armand's Circle Florida

Hi- looking for more current advice on eating in the St. Armand's Circle area - we live in St. Pete - so have already done Ceviche & Columbia and don't want to do the fried seafood routine.

Going down with kids (7 - 16) for mother's day - would love something with a bit of ambience (outside seating or good interior) but even more important - a good chef - we don't need 5 star prices - but appreciate any recommendations for great food that I don't make at home everyday (ie - no italian / steaks / basic chicken etc) - are there any good restaurants with creative chefs? Thanks!!

Great Restaurant in Charleston!

We tried a restaurant in Mt. Pleasant after reading about it in the City Paper - A Culinary Art Company - fantastic! It is just a husband and wife duo - with Tim in the back winning our award for Top Chef in Mt. Pleasant. We tried 3 dishes - each was a great combo of spice and texture and a true visual delight. They have been opened for 2 years, but don't spend anything on advertising - help spread the word!!

What is your favorite restaurant in Santa Fe?

Yes - ok - the boards list a lot - so do the guide books - I live in Charleston SC -- I know that I wouldn't take my dog to 50% of the restaurants they recommend. There are also a few AMAZING restaurants. I used this board when we went to San Francisco & Napa & had some truly memorable meals. I just really want to know (from people who care about great food) -- tonight is your last night in Santa Fe -- where are you going to eat? Thanks.

Best of Santa Fe??

Would love recommendations for all price points for brunch / lunch / dinner - will be spending a week in Santa Fe in November. Number one priority is a good chef -- then ambience. Also - any great grocery stores/delis to pick up stuff for picnics? thanks.

Charleston Visit

Totally agree - not worth the drive to Sienna. Also totally agree with Nachomama - we take all visitors to Slightly North of Broad, just went to Lana - great, think the Village Post House is better for lunch or casual dining outside. Jestine's Kitchen is totally overrated overcooked food - skip it!
