Quintessential CA restaurant for an early dinner with kids after a Sunday Marathon?

Oh, and wouldn't you know Nopa is booked solid until 9pm? Darn.

Thanks. We will try Park Chow at some point that weekend, but yes, I was thinking a little fancier. The babies are 1 and under so if we go early, we can usually manage a fine meal as long as the restaurant offers a high chair. A coworker suggested Locavore, Seven Hills or Nopa. What do you think?

Quintessential CA restaurant for an early dinner with kids after a Sunday Marathon?

We are a group of 6 adults and 2 little ones. I am looking for a moderate to not-quite-splurge restaurant that will accommodate us for an early quintessential California-style dinner (not vegetarian). During my last trip to SF, I enjoyed 1550 Hyde a lot and Zuni Cafe somewhat (overrated?). Since I will have completed the San Francisco Nike Marathon that morning, we will want to stay in SF, not sure if we will have a rental car or be relying on public transportation, but something central would be great. So, CA style, kid tolerant, entrees less than $30, open for early Sunday dinner. Many thanks for your suggestions!

Ossining, NY Area: Cheap & Good Restaurant for Rehearsal Dinner (25 guests)

I will give them a call tomorrow. A restaurant that is cheap, good, and cooperative is hard to beat.

What a great idea! My future mother-in-law loves bbq, and I like the idea of ultra low key during a wedding weekend. Thanks!

Schroon Lake area -- looking for moderate to high end interesting cuisine

A few years ago, we ate at Friends Lake Inn (20 minutes from Schroon Lake) and enjoyed a wonderful meal. It's not quite *interesting* in terms of avant garde cuisine, but it was far from mozzarella sticks. I recommend it.

Ossining, NY Area: Cheap & Good Restaurant for Rehearsal Dinner (25 guests)

My future mother-in-law offered to pay for our rehearsal dinner. She is a single woman on a budget, and I would love your suggestions for good, affordable restaurants in the area, which could host a party of 20-25. We are a casual, flexible group who is simply looking to be fed and share a glass of wine or a beer after we rehearse. Someone suggested Isabella's in downtown Ossining. Any ideas? Many thanks!

Thanks so much for your thoughtful post. I am soon visiting with Valencia Luncheria, and a paella party sounds terrific. Much to follow up on. Thanks!

Excellent point. Though I have been reading chowhound for *years*, this is my first post. Will remember for next time. Thanks.

Caterer Recommendations, Please.

I am planning a backyard wedding in South Salem, NY, and I don't know where to start looking for a caterer. I do know that there will be about 100 guests and that, as long as the food is good, we are open to different cuisines and styles. In fact, we might prefer a nontraditional approach, but taste and value are most important to us. Please share your catering experiences and recommendations. Many thanks!
