I-80: CO-NE-IA-IL-IN-OH Leg of CC Drive

In Omaha we ate at Jaipur and had their beer - the food was terrific, the beer good but nothing special.
In Davenport we ate at Trattoria Tiramisu which was fantastic - delicious simple pastas, wonderful (cheap!) negroamaro by the glass, excellent homemade dessert. Good find!

I-80: CO-NE-IA-IL-IN-OH Leg of CC Drive

We are looking for great lunch recommendations, also breakfast, snacks, must-stop places along I-80 on our drive cross-country with baby and dog. We are spending the night in Omaha, Davenport, and Sandusky, and have dinner ideas already but are always open to suggestions!

Grand Junction Lunch this Sunday

Any recs for a great lunch spot? We will be traveling through with dog and baby and looking for something fast and easy. We like breweries and are always looking for "healthy" options...any input on which brewery in town is best for lunch? Thanks!

I15 From LA onto 70 East Leg of CC Drive

Driving north on I15 from LA to 70 east, we'll be stopping in Beaver UT for the first night and getting to Boulder CO on the second. Any recommendations along the i-15 or 70 E roads for breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, must-stops, etc? We would probably not need to stop until north of Las Vegas on the first day...unless someone tells us otherwise! Thanks! Molly

Afghan Dessert: Burfi? Burfee?

Does anyone know where to find this dessert in the DC/Baltimore metro area? We used to be able to get it at the Helmand, but sadly they stopped serving it. Different from the Indian desert of the same name, this is a sweet pasty cheese mixture kind of plopped on a plate with rose water, pistachios, and I don't know what else involved. But it is heavenly and we miss it, would love to find out about any places that make it. Thanks! Molly

Dog-Friendly dinner Santa Barbara - Atascadero?

We will be traveling up the coast with our 2 dogs on Friday 31 August. We should be looking for dinner somewhere between Santa Barbara and our overnight in Atascadero. I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a place we might stop where the dogs can eat outside with us? If not, is there a great casual must-stop place we should stop in anyway while the dogs sulk in the car? Thanks! Molly

Afghan Dessert: Burfi? Burfee?

Wow - I didn't know about the brother in SF - could you post his restaurant's info? Helmand in Baltimore is terrific - I cannot get enough of it. And yes, impressive family! I've had the Indian version which is really nothing like the Afghan. I will have to ask Azeen's about making it...Thanks!

Afghan Dessert: Burfi? Burfee?

Hello. I moved last year from Baltimore to LA. Back east we had a killer Afghan restaurant called the Helmand. Many years ago they made a dessert that I would love to find in LA, called burfi, or burfee perhaps. Not sure of the spelling. It was a ricotta cheese-like paste that had cardamom, pistachio, maybe rosewater - came served in a bowl. It was blissful. Has anyone heard of this? Are there any good Afghani restaurants around town? I am in Venice but will travel far and wide. Thanks!

Old Town Albuquerque + dog + off nights

Hello! Just read through the best of Albuquerque post, and have a more specific request: We will be in Old Town on an upcoming Sunday, and then on a Monday shortly thereafter. We'll be traveling with our dog, and getting there both nights at dinnertime. Is there a dog-friendly outdoor place in Old Town we might walk to for dinner? We love all types of food.
Thanks for suggestions! Molly

Pie resource on Westside?

Hello...Need recommendations for bakeries on the west side that would be open tomorrow (Sunday) for buying two open to flavours but am supposed to show up to dinner tomorrow night with two pies. The only thing the host said was No Apple - so I guess the Apple Pan is out! Thanks for your suggestions!
