Bring Your Own Wine-Boca Area

We are a couple of foodies/wine people traveling to the Delray/Boca area in mid-November. Looking for a nice restaurant to bring our own wine to for dinner. Can be American or ethnic we're not fussy. Just a nice wine-friendly place will do.

Recommendation for special birthday dinner?

Bringing husband to Celebrity Tennis Tournament in Delray for 70th birthday in November. Would like at least one special dinner. Good wine list a definite. Suggestions?

Captiva Island

Anyone have a favorite place on Captiva to recommend. Fine dining okay - good wine list a plus. Thanks.

This menu looks very interesting. Thanks.

Intrastate Florida Driving Trip

Thanks for the suggestion. Will do.

Looking for local treasures (good wine list would be a plus)

Starting an intrastate Florida trip next week. Working our way down from Panhandle. First night in Altamonte Springs with reservations at Seasons 52. Looking for non-chain restaurants in Viera/Melbourne, Port St. Lucie, Cape Coral/Fort Meyers, Wesley Chapel. A good wine list would make us happy. Any suggestions?

Last night in Boston.

Want to go to the North End and looking at somewhere that we have never been. Pellino's on Prince Street looks interesting. Yeah or Nay? Open for suggestions. As always, thanks.

Destin Area "Bar" Dining

Does anyone out there know if Seagar's serves "small bites" at its bar? Looking for a nice atmosphere but really don't want to spend $250+ on dinner.

Restaurant in Wesley Chapel area of Tampa

Traveling to this area next week and will be looking for a nice dinner on a Friday night. We love local restaurants, not chains, doesn't have to be inexpensive, just worth the money. Nice wine list would be a plus. Any ideas.

Father's Day Restaurant

Looking for a place to take Dad on Father's Day. Must have good handicap access and preferably north of Boston. Any ideas? Oh yeah, forgot to mention - doesn't need to be real fancy and ethnic food is not even remotely possible (unfortunately). Thanks.

Anyone know of a good restaurant near Orlando airport?

Will be staying near the airport next Saturday evening and would prefer not to drive too far after a nice meal which will hopefully include a nice bottle of wine. Any good ideas out there? Thanks.

Road Trip Help (Delray Beach to Destin)

Yes, you will definitely enjoy Seasons 52. They do have fresh fish along with other items for the non-fish lover. Their preparations are beautifully plated, always fresh and done perfectly. I highly recommend the flatbreads. Get one to share to start your meal. I've always had wonderful salads for lunch and their sandwiches/entrees, are quite tasty as well. You'll love the desserts. They come in pony glasses and are only $2.50 (I think). Just a little bite at the end of your meal. As a matter of fact, we will be in Orlando next Saturday evening and I wish we could go again but it is a little too far for us to go from where we are staying. Bummer!!!!

Road Trip Help (Delray Beach to Destin)

I live in Destin with family in Delray. Do not recommend your route - takes too long. Recommend 95 to 75 to 10 and come across. Takes about 9 hours with minimal stops. If you leave in the morning, Orlando should be about 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Recommend Seasons 52 for lunch. We go to the one on Sand Lake. You won't be hungry for dinner until you arrive in Destin and then you have numerous places for dinner. Some real fine dining to be had.

Lincoln Park Restaurants

Thanks. Checked out the website and will keep it mind. Oddly enough, in reading about the owners/chefs, one of them opened his first restaurant in 1993 in Seaside, Florida right down the road from where we live! Small world indeed.

Lincoln Park Restaurants

Headed to Lincoln Park area for a few days in a couple of weeks. Going to theater at Biograph. Any suggestions for after theater dinner? Also, will be staying in Lincoln Park as well and will not be renting a car. Not opposed to public transportation, especially for a good meal. We're foodies and husband is a wine educator so places with good wine lists would be appreciated. Thanks.

Reservations in the North End

Thanks for all the replies. I saw Prezza's menu - definitely a possibility. Will look into the others. Again, thanks.

Reservations in the North End

I am in charge of finding a restaurant in the North End for a Tuesday night in early July. Some of my favorites do not take reservations and my guests are not big on waiting in line. Any recommendations?

Cuban Restaurants near Coconut Grove, Florida

I'll be traveling there next week and am interested in authentic Cuban food.
