Can I freeze the Chowda'

Each time I make New England style Clam and / or Fish Chowda' I have more than I need and two people can consume. We usually keep in the fridge for a week or so but whatever is remaining is generally discarded. My wife suggests freezing is not an option. Any thoughts here? Many thanks,

Fresh pasta in Austin

I'm thinking that Central Market and possibly Whole Foods might have frest pasta available but I am looking for a shop / store front / possibly a restaurant that sells a variety of fresh pasta. Many thanks,

Wackiest, craziest, most interesting restaurant that you have ever been to

There is a flashback. I graduated from UVM in 74'. I remember the Harbor Hideaway. Thanks for sharing this.

San Diego identified by TripAdvisor Community as "Best U.S. Destinations for Pizza" Really?!

Second that comment!! As a Connecticut Yankee and long time patron of Pepe's and on occasion, Salley's I am amazed that New Haven did not make the list.
BTW, I lived in Indianapolis for three years. Other than the restaurant chain capital of the world I cannot imagine the city receiving any other foodie recognition. It is a waste land...

Childhood memories of restaurant dining

How about the Pirate at the door? My folks loved Pier 4. Every trip we made to Boston from CT. always included dinner at Pier 4. This was in the 60's...
Later, after college, my friends and I thought we were living large with dinner in the Men's Grill at Lock Ober.

Galveston...any place worth eating?

In my opinion:
Rudy and Paco's
Luigi's
Waterman's - the Shrimp Kisses are amazing!
Mosquito Cafe

Having my first lobster fest at my house....

+1. I'm surprised the Linguica took so long to be mentioned. I have hosted many bakes out at Katama on the Vinyard. Your comments are what I would consider the classic New England Lobster Bake.

San Antonio Riverwalk

danburke, although, in my opinion, the majority of RW restaurants are "meh" at best there is some great chow in SA.
County Line BBQ is on the RW. They have a strong following in Austin (2 locations) and my experience at the RW location was good.
Biga on Banks, just off the RW is excellent.

Looking for an American restaurant but elevated in W. Plano/Carrollton

LewisvilleHounder, you mention Chamberlain's in Addison. I will be in Frisco in November with a busniess group and have considered Chamberlain's as a venue for a group business dinner one evening. Do you have any thoughts around this? I have not eaten at Chamberlain's.
Many thanks,

Pick Your Own — New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont

We have not lived in Southern New Hampshire for many years. When we lived in Bedford our favorite Pick Your Own Orchard was in New Boston at MAPADOT Orchards. Our kids looked forward to our trips to MAPADOT every fall.

Baby bok choy

Excellent! All of my Asian friends, while working in Hong Kong, used this method. Usually 1 - 1 1/2 minutes for blanching and adding rehydrated Black Mushrooms in the dish as well.

KILL DEVIL HILLS AREA

The wait at Sugar Creek was overboard, 1 1/2 hrs., so we gave Darryl's a call. No worries, they had a table and we had an excellent dinner. All were happy. I would highly reccomend Darryl's.

Mexican Food in San Antonio?

Well said Jaymes! I too have moved many times in my career, foreign & domestic (20+). Although my roots are in northern New England and I miss the "down east" eats from time to time, I have found that eating local is rewarding, satisfying, and often exciting. I looking forward to my next move!

crawfish etouffee

Sanglier, my wife and I were @ Gallitorie's last Saturday evening for dinner. Crawfish Etouffee was on the menu. I am far from a Crawfish Etouffee expert but I will say that I was very pleased. Both my wife and I agreed it was delicious.
