Seafood birthday dinner?

Have you tried Mikado? It's on Research near Burnet Rd (the old Pearl's for you true Austinites) It's Japanese and has fantastic fish and meats. Also sushi. I've always enjoyed it and the decor/ambiance is nice.

Casual rehearsal dinner near(ish) Northcross?

Chez Zee (Balcones/2222) is a good choice...and they have private dining area as well. I also recommend Mirabelle,

Delivery to Hospital in Houston

I have someone who would like to have a meal delivered to some parents that have a sick child and are at Ronal McDonald House in Houston. Anyone know of an 'Eat Out In' service (like Austin) that can deliver from local good restaurants?

Cheese sauce recipe?

I recommend combining some velveeta with some other cheeses (monterrey jack, cheddar, etc) and using spices (garlic), along with some Rotel or homemade equivalent. When I make queso, it usually has:

monterrey jack
fresh cilantro
fresh garlic
fresh chives
sweet (1015) onion
fresh serranos (or jalepenos)
fresh red bell peppers

if you combine them all, you'll lose the velveeta taste, but keep the creamy quality.
