Uni for home sushi?

I am hoping to make a killer donburi bowl with uni, ikura, and scallops at home. Any recommendations on the best place to get uni currently? New Deal doesn't have it now. I've walked into Sakanaya but didn't buy anything, so I don't know how good it is for uni. I bought it at Reliable Market previously, but it wasn't very fresh, so I had to make it into a pasta sauce. Haven't been to Sea to You. Although I've read reviews on all these places, I find it hard to know if the uni specifically is good because the turnover for uni is lower than for salmon or tuna. Thanks so much for the input!

Fine dining in Ipswich?

Hello all,

I'm going to be taking my boyfriend to stay at the Inn at Castle Hill in Ipswich. I'd love any recommendations for a great birthday dinner - price is no object. The reestaurant has to be quiet and serve great food - any cuisine is fine. Thanks so much!

Superb restaurants beyond the Boston area

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a superb restaurant (i.e. akin to L'Espalier or No. 9 Park) *outside* of the Boston area - anywhere from a 20-30 minute drive. I'd like to take a friend out to a great restaurant that is a little outside of the city since he knows those restaurants well. Requirements include quiet atmosphere and great food. Price point: similar to L'Espalier. Thanks so much!

Freshest seafood in Brookline/Fenway area?

Hello everyone,

I live in the Fenway area. Where is the best place to buy raw seafood - specifically, mussels and salmon? I have a car, but my husband hates to drive far, so we're looking for someplace in the Fenway or Brookline area. Thanks so much!

Best bets at Bambara?

Anyone? Or is it really as boring as it seems?

Best bets at Bambara?

Hello everyone,
I'm going to dinner with some friends to Bambara (not my choice of restaurant). After looking online, I'm not too excited about the menu (seems kinda boring), so I wanted to ask the collective CH wisdom for any recs for tasty items on their menu since I can't change the restaurant? I did a search, but there aren't too many recent entries regarding Bambara. Thanks so much!
PS anyone know how to order the search results by date? The old CH board used to have a "sort" function after you did a search...

Which restaurant serves sweetbreads?

Veal sweetbreads are actually pancreas or thymus, not brains...

Which restaurant serves sweetbreads?

Have searched google fruitlessly for restaurants in the Boston area serving sweetbreads! I tried a Chowhound search as well, but all of the posts are old/outdated so that the restaurant's menu has been changed by now. Am willing to drive 30 minutes outside of Boston also to find the darned sweetbreads...but am too lazy to cook them myself. Thanks so much!
