Austin Burger Smackdown!

Is the burger at Mike's Pub a thin, diner-style patty, or a thick, pub- or tavern-style two hander?

Thanks, C.

Visitor Needs Montreal restaurant recommendation

Hello!

My fiancee and I will be honeymooning in Quebec. I have been doing quite a bit of research on what restaurants to go to while we're they're, particularly during the five nights we'll be spending in Montreal.

I have lots of mid-level bistros I've found, but am not sure about the finer-dining restaurants

Could you please recommend a restaurant that meets the following criteria?
(We already know about au pied de cochon)

1) Multi-course or tasting menus
2) Not to far from downtown/old city, or at least close to the metro
3) Nouvelle or New American cuisine -OR- classic Quebecois
4) Utilizes local ingredients, game or offal a plus

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

C.

Romantic restaurants in St. Louis

Ended up going to the Melting Pot. The corner booth they wedged us in, an hour after our reservation, was at most semi-private, and the restaurant was hot (well over 90 degrees.) Food and service were good though, and it was pleasant when we stepped into the cool evening air. Shoulda went somewhere else.

Bailey's is definitely a must-go for dessert.

Romantic restaurants in St. Louis

Aya Sofia is a solid suggestion, as is Sidney Street. Someone off list also mentioned Mihalis--they do have nice closed booths, and it's a cool contemporary atmosphere, but I'm not sure if it's "romantic".

thanks to all!

Romantic restaurants in St. Louis

Hello Chowhounds,

What are the most romantic restaurants in St. Louis? In particular, what are some restaurants that have "cozy" or "intimate" private seating for two? The now-closed Cafe de Paris on S. Grand used to have a cute little curtained booth--that sort of thing.

Thanks!

Sweet 16 for a foodie..a celebration in NYC

Two more thoughts: one, congrats on rasing a daughter with taste :) and Happy Birthday to her. Secondly, don't forget--lunch is a good time to go to the high-end joints, and the less expensive places for dinner.

Sweet 16 for a foodie..a celebration in NYC

I would like to ditto the comment about Morimoto or one of Mario Batali's places--I would imagine that a 16-year old foodie watches her share of the Food Network, and eating in one of the Iron Chef's restaurants, perhaps even food prepared by them, would be quite a treat.

Besides that, you might try a cuisine that you can't easily find elsewhere--Indonesian (particularly rijsttafel), Malaysian, Ethiopian, Argentinian, etc.

Can't remember the name of a restaurant

I googled it, and that is IT. Thank you for the help; I knew the 'hounds wouldn't let me down!

Can't remember the name of a restaurant

I was reading an article on the web the other day about a very small, hole-in-the wall diner-style place in Manhattan that serves a very limited menu, including some non-diner type food like chicken fricasee, and french bistro favorites like boeuf bourgignon and coq au vin. It is a tiny joint, seats less than 20 at a u-shaped or double counter; the cooking goes on right behind the counter. The whole operation is run by two people. I can't remember the name of the restaurant, or even what neighborhood it was in. The "gist" of the article is that there was improbably high-end food being turned out in such a small establishment. Any ideas?
