Komi wine questions?

Hi all - I have a reservation coming up at Komi and was wondering if anyone can give me any information on Komi's wine list? We have a special bottle of wine we've been saving and are thinking of bringing it in. What does the wine list look like? Are there reasonably priced by-the-glass options? How price inflated do the bottle appear?

Thanks.

Anything near the aiport?

I'm flying in to Montreal and driving to Tremblant this weekend. Any recommendations for something quick and good (am open to anything) near the airport or along route 13 and 15 on the way out of town?

Thanks,
Aaron

Recommendations near Hancock/Syracuse airport?

I'm flying into SYR around lunch and looking for a suggestion for lunch? I'm driving N on 81 to Canada and would prefer not to head south but will go a few miles if there's a good suggestion. Any suggestions besides Dinosaur?

Thanks,
Aaron

New Sammy's Question

Hello,

I'll be driving through the area this summer and am trying to decided whether to go to New Sammy's for lunch or dinner. Anyone know if the lunch offerings tend to differ much from dinner? I'll have a 6 month old in tow and if the food is similar, I'd rather lean towards lunch or a very early dinner. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Aaron

Seafood market in Westlake or vicinity?

Hi,

I'm house sitting in Westlake and am looking for a good seafood market -- something like the Santa Monica Seafood Company if that's available. Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks,
Aaron

Westside: Fun (maybe small plates) for 10 on a Saturday

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a rec for 6 - 10 people for next Saturday. Nothing too expensive or too cheap. Westside preferably.

The ideal was getting Musha's backroom but it's booked. Anything similar on Sawtelle that someone can recommend? It doesn't have to be a private room.

I tried Cobras and Matadors but they don't seat more than 6 on Fri/Sat.

Many thanks!

Need quick small plate recommendation

Thanks, I agree, we go there often and it's one of our favorites. Got anything else? Anything on Sawtelle?

Need quick small plate recommendation

I'm looking for a place for an anniversary dinner tonight. I was hoping to find a place with small plates. My wife is pregnant and gets full very quickly so small plates have been working well for us. Was hoping to try Violet and Orris but both are closed on Monday. Any similar recommendations?

Close to Santa Monica is a bonus but not a necessity.

Bistro K - Pushing opening back 1 week - need advice

Hey all...long time reader, first time poster

We had reservations for tomorrow night (before we heard about the changing of the guard) but just got a call from the chef that they're pushing back the reopening till next week.

We were taking my father-in-law out for his 60th. Anyone have another rec? He's coming from NYC so we wanted something nice that he couldn't necessarily find back East. We live on the west side but locations isn't a concern.

Plus, the BYOB aspect of Bistro K was a plus since he's a bit of wine expert and usually visits with a view bottles.

Thanks for any advice.
