BEST LOUISVILLE EATS - HIGH END, MODERATE, LOCAL

Thanks so much - we actually never made it to Louisville because our son decided to fly down. However, we are going the end of January and made reservations at 61 Magnolia, Serviche for my son's birthday dinner (he is only off on Monday nights) and Harvest for lunch, Thought we also would check out Hillbilly Tea and see if there is a way to work in Jack Fry's. Proof on Main looks like it might be a good post theater place to have a drink and light meal.

Will send comments after we return

BEST LOUISVILLE EATS - HIGH END, MODERATE, LOCAL

Thanks so . It's funny that you mention the Actors Theater, since that is the reason we are heading for Louisville. Our son will be starting a 9 month stage management internship and we are driving him down. We do love BBQ, especially outside of NYC, so definitely will try some. I thought we also would celebrate my husband's birthday and wondering what you thing of the James Beard Group: 610 Magnolia, Sevice, and Harvest.

Hi,

We will be in Louisville for 2-3 days in August and would love to explore the best eats. Planning on one gourmand dinner, but also inexpensive local fare suggestions would be terrific. Would love to know local favorites.

Thanks,

Where to eat in Eureka Springs

Hi,

We are a NYC family with a son who is graduating from Hendrix College in May. Although we have visited many times, our son is a theater major, we have always been in the Conway/Little Rock area. My husband and I thought that before we stop travelling to Arkansas we should go to Eureka Springs. Would love suggestions on where to dine or any places we should be stopping between Conway and Eureka Springs.

Thanks,

Prague - lunch, snack, restaruant and food suggestions.

Hi,

My husband and I will be in Prague for 3-4 days. I have made reservations at Restaurace V Zátiší, Le Terrior, & Divinas - are there other suggestions. Do these sound like good choices. I do not particularly care for heavy pork dishes, cabbage, etc.

Also, where should we stop for lunch, cafe, snacks? Are there any special food markets.

Thanks

Restaurants near Tapatio Cliffs Hilton

Thanks to everyone for the great suggestions - extremely helpful to a bunch of east coast folks.

Restaurants near Tapatio Cliffs Hilton

Hi,

I will be attending a conference at the Tapatio Cliffs Hilton in May and am looking for some good restaurants within 5 miles - presume we can taxi. One or two nights we will be 10 people. Would love some great southwestern or mexican food. Most of us are from the Northeast, particularly New York City. It would be great to keep the cost to $45-$60 a head.
Less than that would be a bonus.

Thanks,

Lunch at Paris 3 Star

Dear Souphie,

Thank you for your assessment. Ledoyen definitely was our inclination, but I did not know about the other two. We have decided to splurge on lunch rather than dinner at Senderens where we ate in 2006 when he first opened the restaurant.

Nashville to Memphis: where to stop

Thanks so much to everyone - we ate great food. We were staying in Brentwood so had dinner at the Red Pony in Franklin. In Memphis had the best chicken ever at Gus's and fabulous ribs and pork at the Interstate. It was so good that I had more at the Memphis Airport during my 2 hour wait and brought back their barbecue sauce for my Dad. And thanks so much for the Ashly in Little Rock. Being a New York City foodie I never would have thought to go to an upscale Little Rock Restaurant. The food was amazing and by New York City prices the $49 dollar menu a steal. Everything was well done, from the foie gras to the lobster. It definitely opened eys to a new part of the country.

Nashville to Memphis: where to stop

Thanks - these are great suggestions, especially since there are options all along the route.

Any ideas from Mountain City in the East to Nashville - preferably around Knoxville or further west. That will be our stop the day before as we continue our travels from New York CIty to Conway Arkansas.

Thanks again - this is very helpful to a NYC family that is not familiar with your area.
