I hope it's a lot better than the the Palm Steakhouse here in SAT. That chain has restaurants in several cities, but I doubt I'll be going back any time soon.

I have a few places I like to visit, but nothing good enough to recommend to folks who don't live here. SAT is the land of super-cheap meals, but hardly any high-quality restaurants with good value.

Salad King at the corner of Yonge and Gould in Toronto.
It's a great little Thai joint.
The golden curry chicken (with no less than 10 chilies) is amazing.

O Mei Chinese on Steeles/Bathurst or Hwy7 and Yonge (I think?) They don't have a liquior licence anymore though.

Sababa Restaurant (Middle-Eastern) on Steeles (a block or 2 from O Mei).

The Golden Kiwi New Zealand pub, Martinis bar and lounge, the Blackshop, the Black Badger pub. As far as the chain ones, I like the KEG, Montana's, and the Mandarin.

Two-minute walk: Thai Hut - take out Thai, not bad, but I wouldn't plan on getting any afterward.  Wink

Three-minute walk:

EVOO - Gourmet eclectic food. Really good, but pricey world cuisine.

Dali - Spanish Tapas - best atmosphere in the Boston area. Food and Sangria rocks. Go here, if you're anywhere in the area.

Kebab Factory - Decadent Indian brunch spread. $8 on weekdays, $10 on weekends. First Class shit. All you need all day.

The Kirkland Cafe: Well, they have beer and a big-screen. Food tastes like a dead mad-cow.

Four-minute walk:

The Thirsty Scholar - great Irish Breakfast on weekends, good pub fare otherwise.

10-minute walk:

R.F. O'Sullivan's: Best hamburgers around. Home grilled, thick as John Holmes  Wink with all the condiments you can stuff down. That and TV's all around.

Bukowski - Inman Square's replacement for Jae's and I cannot be more pissed off, despite my love of Bukowski himself. Jae's was an institution (went ther every Friday night for 5 years), and Buk's is an overly loud piece of crap. The mexican burger is good if you can stand the Cambridge skanks and the horrible music.

In Toronto, the best restaurant (IMHO), is a little Italian place in Chinatown called Tuscany Cafe. (Yes that's right...an authentic Italian food joint, owned and operated by Chinese people).

The owners are accredited somaliers and close the place for two weeks every year to tour B&Bs and various wine regions around the world. It's a small, cozy, casual restaurant, and the owners can often be found sitting at tables with their welcoming patrons.

Their food is OUTSTANDING and their wines are even better. What's more, is that it's not even an expensive restaurant. The most expensive main course on the menu is $19.99. The wine isn't cheap, but it's worth every cent. You can also bring your own wine if you choose.

In SLC I'd have to go there's an American contemporary place in Sandy, Utah called Tiburon, eclectic food but very good. There's a good classic American cafe downtown called Lamb's that's been there for nearly a century. Though I'm not a huge fan of Seafood, if I am in the mood, Market Street is a great place to go. Then there's a great dump of a place called the Red Iguana out by the airport for Mexican, a mix of Americanized and authentic Mexican food, specializing in Mole.   The chain Spencer's is pretty good for a Steak.

Can't say I've had much of a culinary education in SEA, mostly food just off campus but a little Thai place called Thai 65 and Indian place called Cedars are both pretty good.

Despite its being a couple hundred miles from my area the one that takes the cake is Lumière in YVR, about $120 per person to eat there plus drinks, but damn it's good: http://www.lumiere.ca/

L'Amiral in Juan Les Pins - classy little restaurant a couple of blocks away, reasonable prix-fixe menus, excellent food, well prepared and beautifully presented.

L'Astrolabe in St Laurent du Var - mmmm.

L'Oursin Bleu in Villefranche - not exactly local, but well worth the visit (their moilleux au chocolat is to die from).

Au Table du Geoffroy in Mougins - Mmmm mmm mmm mmmm but very expensive, so best to do it when someone else is paying

Cafe du Turin in Nice, superfresh seafood, served au naturel. A battle to get in, but worth it.

Ugggh, you guys need to come south sometime for some real BBQ.

Here in BHM, my favorites:

Bombay Cafe - Softshell crawfish appetizer!, great seafood and the double chocolate nut ball
Bottega and Highlands owned by the great chef Frank Stitt(Highlands is also Pat Conroy's favorite restaurant and he doesn't even live near here)
Fast food - Zoes and Guthrie's
BBQ - lots of good places, Jim n Nicks, Golden Rule, and Johnny Ray's are some of the really good ones but Ken's is the best.
Middle Eastern - Pita Stop
Meat & Three - VJ's on the runway(could it be anything else?)
Thai - Surin
Sushi - Sakura
Chinese - Golden Palace

Also, I dream about eating at San Telmo in Quito, my favorite period!



Where are all of my respected members going?

In Prague:

-Aba. Pub near Charles Square. Serves good food, excellent beer on tap
(Svijany) and in my experience has good service. Good prices too.

-Car Club. Pub in the Repy neighborhood. Good service and nice selection of
Czech and some foreign food.

-Green Garden Hotel (I think that's what it's called). A hotel restaurant at
Fugnerovo Namesti. They have excellent lunch deals and good service.

-Hombre El Mundo. Great Mexican restaurant near the tram exit of And'el
subway stn.

-Malostranska Pivnice in the Kampa area. Well-prepared Czech and some
foreign food, well-priced weekday lunch specials. Serves Pilsner Urquell beer

-Pizzeria U Kmotra - wide selection of pizza, pasta and other Italian stuff (I love their fresh bruschetta).

-Pizzeria in the passage at 17 Vaclavske Namesti (Wenceslas Square). Also on
the whole decent Italian food.


In Toronto:

-John Anderson's: fast food place on Yonge St. South of Finch St. Still my
favorite such restaurant. Luscious souvlaki and steaks on a kaiser, possibility
to put together a vegetarian menu (good salads) etc.

-Made in Japan: a teriyaki chain at food courts. The one at Centerpoint Mall is
particularly good.

-Papas Grill: deelicious Greek restaurant on Danforth Ave.

-Rossini's: elegant Italian restaurant on Avenure Road. Highly recommended

-Sakura: a fast food Japanese place at the food court in the North York
Centre below the library. They have rich soups that eat like a meal.

-Solo Maria: lovely Italian family-run restaurant on Avenue Road. Try their
Linguine alle Vongole. Mmmm...

And I can't resist mentioning "Balint", a Hungarian restaurant and deli that existed in the mid-1990s very near Honest Ed's. They had delicious soups,
schnitzel, kebab, Balkan-style hamburger, cakes etc etc. Alas, they disappeared relatively quickly and one day I saw it turned into a book clearance sale place, with products practically on the stove. Boo hoo  Sad
