One night in Kingston: Luke's? Le Chien Noir?

Going to Kingston for dinner this week while vacationing near there.
I don't know too much about the scene but have read there's some great restaurants.

I've read the Kingston posts on Chow and still up in the air as to where to have dinner.
There are only a few recent posts (and very conflicting) so I'm throwing it out to the Hounds.
We're looking for gourmet, foodie friendly.
We'd like a more upscale environment; doesn't have to be uber fancy but just no pizza, curry, etc.
Think special occasion.
We only have one night so I want to choose wisely.

I've wanted to try Luke's for a while but it seems hit or miss. We love different and daring. Anyone been there recently?
Is Le Chien Noir upscale? Or is it more casual bistro?
What's Chez Piggy like? The reviews are so mixed it's hard to tell.

Any help you Hounds give would be super.
If you had one dinner in Kingston, unlimited budget where would you go?

Question about Sushi Gen

I would think most foodies would know never eat sushi on Sun-Mon. Won't be the freshest you get, especially if they didn't run out over the wkend.
Keep having sub par exp's., because that's one less person waiting before me.

Eastsider having lunch Westside-Santa Monica?

Hey Hounds...

A foodie friend is coming to town from NYC and I'd like to eat lunch Westside after picking him up from the airport. He expressed a desire to eat somewhere that has outside dining (I guess he thinks it's going to be hot haha).
I'm Eastside so don't know too many places over there. Would like to keep the cost relatively low(er). any ideas? Open to cuisine. Something close to the beach, perhaps?

Cheese Curds, where do I find Cheese Curds? In LA

I know Dusty's on Sunset serves Poutine. I've never had it, but know it's there. I think the owner is from Montreal.

ipsedixit, I believe it's called LooseLeaf. I went there yesterday and was pretty pleased with the selections. They have a menu of made salad combos, or you can make your own. And great salad dressing options. Tad pricey, but so is Organic to Go. And I like LooseLeaf's selection of ingredients better than OTG.

Las Vegas Brunch/ Breakfast

Hi Hounds! I need your help...
I will be staying at The Palms Thanksgiving weekend. I have family who live near Summerlin, and would like to go to breakfast/brunch on Sunday before I leave. There will be quite a few of us (at least 10 or so, and 2 children), so I'd like to keep the cost down.
Any ideas on a really good breakfast or brunch? Can be on the Strip, or not...I'm not adverse to buffets, but a sit down might be better for my elderly Grandma.
Happy Thanksgiving!
