Best Mexican near PHX or on way to Prescott or in Prescott?

Landing tonight around 5 into PHX. Have to drive to Prescott and would love some awesome mexican on the way/near either PHX or Prescott (ideally the latter since 5 is a bit early for dinner). Ideally mole, but I'm open to everything.

This is for TODAY! Thanks hounds.

Hudson River Valley 1st Timers - Help!

Ended up doing Queen City. Pretty good, not amazing. No one else in restaurant the entire time! Was very odd.

The town was closed after 9pm it seemed. No place to get coffee/dessert, so we trekked back to Rhinebeck and had a nice molten choc cake at Terrapin. Thanks all! Tonight is A Tavola...

UPDATE:! Turns out Crimson Sparrow is closed tonight and they canceled our reservations! They made one for Fish and Game but because of a TERRIBLE AirBnB experience we are now going to be in Poughkeepsee tonight. Crave is closed; as is Artist's Palate. So is Diego's Taqueria!

IS there anything in Poughkeepsee good and open on a Sunday? Or within a 30 min drive? Thinking of trying Crew in Kingston maybe, I don't know... and it's short notice.

Help!!!

Hudson River Valley 1st Timers - Help!

Also, can you all confirm Crimson Sparrow is worth going to? Are there better options near Hudson we are missing out on? Reviews seem mixed.

Hudson River Valley 1st Timers - Help!

Yes we do have 12:45 reservations on Tuesday at AB.

Sadly, Crave is closed from Jul 1 - 14!! Why, oh why!!? It sounded so good.

Other choices?

Thanks so much.

What is better for a picturesque walk/hike, Mohonk Preserve or Minnewaska State Park?

Also if anyone else has food/other suggestions those will be appreciated!

Hudson River Valley 1st Timers - Help!

Thanks. This trip is planned around both meals and sightseeing! For the latter we were hoping to see a few museums and the FDR library. (any other suggestions for sightseeing also welcomed!)

Hudson River Valley 1st Timers - Help!

Heading to the HRV next week; (Sun-Tues nights) staying in Hudson for 2 nights and then New Windsor for 1 night.

So far, we plan to go to:

- The Crimson Sparrow (dinner)
- American Bounty (CIA; lunch)
- A Tavola (dinner)

We actually DON'T want to go to A Tavola so will likely change it - plenty of good italian near our house and we really want local, non-ethnic I think on this trip.

Any suggestions for some great places (dinner, but lunch too). We would've gone to Global Palate but it's closed when we are in town.

Thanks!

Are you attending a certain conference with some certain congressmen? Me too!

Thanks. I am liking Washoku En a bit more from a quick online search. We don't drink, so we're singularly focused on the food. Thanks so much

Hi all - we will be in Ginza staying at the Courtyard. We are open as to atmosphere, we just want quality food.

And I have dug into archives - that is why I listed those places in the beginning. It is getting late for me to send for reservations so any updates today would be great. Thanks.

Going to add Kondo for tempura too...and possibly Daisan Harumi for another sushi place. Likely L'As also. Any other thoughts?

First time visitor to China and going to Kunming for 2 nights. Any advice on non-southern Chinese favorites there? We're into flavorful/spicy more than fishy. Thanks

Dinner - Sushi Tokami
Dinner - Ginza Okuda

Dinner - Maisen in Shibuya
Lunch - Tofuya Ukai

We also are thinking of Fuku and Rokurinsha but if you have any other ramen places let me know too. Thanks

Suggestions please!

Sunrise Breakfast in Phoenix?

I have some time to kill and I will be downtown around sunrise. Any killer breakfast (preferably with a Mexican slant) places with a great view? Outdoor seating ideal.

BBQ but with good atmosphere?

Thanks. What's the primary difference between the two? And what about parking options?

BBQ but with good atmosphere?

Having a lunch with all ages and wondering if there's a place for 10-12 people to have BBQ in a nice atmosphere. Normally I could care less about atmosphere but the mother in law will be with us! Any good suggestions? We're open to anywhere in Chicago, ideally with decent parking. Thanks

Help! Tonight's dinner? Salpicon, Mexique, Quartino or??

Just got back from Tanta - was pretty good. Glad we tried it. Ordered the pork fried rice (good, but a tad sweet), ceviche w/ahi tuna and avocado (excellent), half chicken and sides (very good), causitas w/crab (so-so---needed lime), and quinoa salad (good). Probably wouldn't go again given the dining options in Chicago but overall we were glad we went. Clearly they're still working out kinks as a new restaurant since service was good but slightly spotty.

Great recommendation - thanks again! Now for our next meal, I don't have a reso for Frontera but would like to go!

4 people, visiting at the Hyatt regency. Don't want anything too fancy but know our choices at this point are limited.

Salpicon, Quartino and Mexique are available but Sable is not. Any recommendations out of those 3? Or any others I'm missing? Want not too expensive, nonpIzza and we like mexican.

Help!!! This is for tonight!

What's good on the Sunshine Coast right now?

Thanks! I did see these but hoping for something newer?

What's good on the Sunshine Coast right now?

Doesn't seem to be a lot of choices out there. Smitty's seems to be what people like, but other reviews are not so good. We are 12 people, all ages, and want a very, very good restaurant (ideally seafood).

Any recommendations also for a great brunch/breakfast place and a market to buy FRESH fish/seafood for grilling would be great too.

Thanks.

Good Country Breakfast/Brunch from Boston to Woodstock?

Sorry. We're going to Woodstock VT!

Will check out The Foothills. But the annual pie breakfast sounds fun too, what more can you tell me about it?

After doing some research, I like Robie's in Hooksett for our needs. Other ideas?
