Looking for a restaurant on the strip for a group - inexpensive

I have a group coming in from South America and they would like to have a group dinner on the strip, but their budget is $40 per person. I would love any ideas!

Momofuku Noodle bar late night

Will we be able to even get into Momofuku noodle bar at 1 or 1:30 a.m. on Friday or Saturday? We're coming into the City for the Food & Wine Festival and plan to be out late. I'd love to head over there late night, but I want to make sure the lines aren't too long and we can get in. Thanks!

Looking for a high-end restaurant near Turnberry Isle for a client dinner

So far I've been given, Il Mulino, Alba, The Palm and GG , but none of those "stand out" to me. Are there any others nearby that I'm missing?

Thanks!

Thank you. We've been to all of those restaurants before and I agree, all are very good.

Help us choose a restaurant for our anniversary (Baltimore)

My husband and I are coming to Baltimore for one night to celebrate our anniversary at the beginning of September. We had our first date at the Wine Market, so that's definitely on our list, but we've already been there. I'd like to try somewhere new. I'm thinking about Fleet Street Kitchen or Wit & Wisdom. Any feedback on those?

I moved away about six years ago, but visit occasionally, and I've been to , PABU, Woodberry Kitchen, all the Wolf/Foreman restaurants, Salt and a few others. We'd like to stay in the downtown area. I'd love any additional ideas. Thanks!

The Inn at Patowmack Farm or Trummers on Main

My husband and I are debating where to go for our 5th anniversary. We've narrowed it down to these two restaurants. I'd love feedback/advice.

Thx!

Looking for a good, but not TOO expensive, Mother's Day buffet brunch

Thanks Elyssa. That's a great idea. I'll look into it. Another question for you - we have three year old twins. They are pretty well-behaved in restaurants. Do you see other children there when you've been?

Thanks again!

Looking for a good, but not TOO expensive, Mother's Day buffet brunch

I'd like to go out for a buffet brunch (not order off the menu) for Mother's Day. DC is the farthest south and Columbia the farthest north we can go (though over to Frederick would be fine too). I'd prefer not to go to a hotel. $50/pp is the max I'd like to pay for adults,

I know it's a lot to ask, but this is my first mother's day going out to brunch. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Where to get a pork/meat centric lunch on the way to Paris, VA

My husband's 40th birthday is this weekend and we are headed to Paris, VA on Saturday. I'd love to find a pork centric or charcuterie centric place along the way. I don't mind going a bit out of the way to get there. I looked at the Butcher's Block in Alexandria, but you can't eat there, so that's out.

Any help would be appreciated!

Homemade pasta storage help please!

I'm making homemade pasta for NYE. I want to make the pasta today, but don't know how to store it until tomorrow. Should I leave it out, put it in the fridge or freeze it. It's only one night.

Thanks!

Looking for a restaurant in mid-town for a BREAKFAST meeting

Looking for a private room for small client dinner

I have a client meeting on Tuesday evening (yes very last minute) and I'm looking for a place with a small private room as there are only six of us. I'd like to stay in the area between 50th and 14th streets and no farther east than Park Ave. Price isn't too much of an issue, but I'd rather not go too high. We're totally open to the type of food.

thanks

Out of towner looking for specific place for drinks

I remember reading about a bar/lounge on a high floor/ rooftop that is supposed to be a great place to get drinks before or after dinner.

I know thsi isn't a great description, but does this sound familiar to anyone and if so what is the name ofthis place?

Thanks

Looking for high end fusion in downtown DC or Bethesda

I have a VIP for work coming into town who's a big food and wine geek. He asked for a few recommendations/options for fusion of any kind. I also plan to send him some of the really great non fusion restaurants we have in the area like Komi, but I would love any ideas. I am totally open and price isn't really an issue. but I do need to stay in the downtown area or Bethesda.

Thanks!

Which Honey Pig is better?

We are equal distance between Annandale and Ellicott City. I'm more inclined to go to Annandale, but would love to hear what others thoughts are.

Also, what are some must eat items. It all looks so good!

THX!

Please recc your favorite (higher end) BYOB

Thanks, all of this feedback is exactly what I am looking for.

Nancy - I read about the Farm and the Fisherman recently and will take a look

As far as brining in flasks, yes, we were thinking about drinks before dinner.

Please recc your favorite (higher end) BYOB

I'm taking my husband to Philly in late March for his birthday and his best friend and his wife are going to meet us. I'm looking for a great BYOB where we can actually have a conversation. I'd like the food to be American, New American, seafood, steakhouse or some sort of asian or asian/fusion. Since we will be able to bring our own wine, pricing isn't really an issue. We are staying in downtown Philly, so I'd like to eat downtown as well.

We will probably go to Tria for drinks beforehand.

I did a chowhound search and didn't see anything on thsi topic, but if I missed a post/thread, please post the link. A few places I'm looking at are: Matyson, Pumpkin, Fond, Cochon, and Bistro 7

Also, a question for a BYOB newbie - can you only bring wine, or can you bring hard alcohol in a flask as well?

Thanks!

I'm from out of town and went to this place a few years ago for apps and drinks and can't seem to find it online anymore. Is it still open? If not, can I get some reccs for a great place to go before dinner when I'm back in town in April?

thx!

Sushi reccs please

I'm coming to town for a conference next week and would love to find a great place for sushi. I'm staying downtown, so I'd prefer to stay in that area. Price really isn't too much of an issue. I'm happy to take any recommendations.

Thanks!

Looking for unique dining near Hollywood

Are there any asian or concept restaurants in the area. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not looking for your typical italian restaurant or steakhouse. PS(the asian place in the Westin is closed the night we need to do our dinner). The group is about 15 ppl.

Need a very nice restaurant in/near Hollywood

I have a group at work who needs to take clients out in Hollywood. They are staying at the Westin Diplot, but are certainly willing to go 15 minutes away from there. I'm looking for something nicer than Three Forks, but not $150/pp. I would prefer a place that has a private room.

Any help would be apprecaited.

Thanks!

Where to buy cinghiale online

My husband and I are having people over for new years (yes, I'm a planner) and we'd like to try cooking cinghiale, but don't know where to buy it online. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Looking for multiple restaurants for client dinners

I'm looking for a four or five great restaurants to take clients during a meeting in November. I'm looking for places with great food, that aren't over the top expensive and they must take reservations. Our groups are small, only about five or six people. I'm open to ideas, but i know I need one sushi place and am thinking Ryoko, but if there are better ones, I'm certainly open. I'd love to get a good cross-section of cuisines, asian, italian, steak, vietnamese, etc...

Thank you!
