Try Oldfields in Newcastle or Durham. Thoughtfully designed menus using local organic food wherever possible. More importantly it's food that tastes good. Go early evening or lunchtime, as the special set menus are great value.

I live in a small village. We've only got about two restaurants. Do I now have the entire world to pick from?

Wouldn't it make more sense to ask for recommendations FROM members' hometowns?

Well not really, because a restaurant outside of the city, village, town of where you reside meaning if you have traveled which restaurant did you like or feel has good food NOT in where you reside.

But for most people that's likely to be a one-off experience, so may not be accurate. By recommending places where you live you have the benefit of not only your own experiences, but of a restaurant's local reputation.

So if anyone ever happens to pass through this small town just outside the capital, I can guarantee you the best Italian food in the country should you eat in Campo di Fiori (the opinion of the Italian Academy of Cookery, not mine). It's where the Italian community go to eat! Also I can guarantee you'll get a top-notch Indian takeaway in the Bombay Pantry, but avoid all the others like the plague.

That's why local knowledge counts.

There are people who spend a great deal of time traveling. For instance, I spend at least 1/2 of my month away from Singapore. I've been doing that for the past 25+ years!

Boston, MA:

El Pelon - GREAT Burritos, pretty inexpensive too. Home-made tortilla chips and fire-roasted salsa.

Durgin Park restaurant - New England pot roast, seafood, baked beans... sometimes gets bad rating for service, but I didn't notice it. The larger prime rib really is a "side of cow" sized cut...

Modern Pastry - Not really a restaurant, but definitely a place to take the edge off that sweet tooth Big grin (they may literally be the reason why I'm diabetic... but I digress)

Woody's Grill and Tap - Best 5-cheese pizza I've ever had (yes, wood-fired ovens), pretty good salads, and of course BEER!  Smile Kind of off the beaten path though (58 Hemenway St)


I'm pretty low-budget, so I don't go for fancy stuff



I'll rassle ya for a bowl of bacon!

If you feel like dropping some $$$, Andre's at the Monte Carlo in LAS is fantastic. LogansGirl and I had our wedding dinner there, and the atmosphere, food and presentation were just perfect.

While not one of the greatest restaurants in the world, I also very much enjoyed Cafe Pacifico in London. Not sure if it's still there.

In AMS, you must have rijsttafel at Kantijl on Spuistraat.

Despite not being a HUGE fan of pizza, my vote goes to Beau Jo's Pizza (Idaho Springs, CO). They have other branches throughout Colorado. The menu is a bit confusing, but the pizza is great.

Sure it's good, but I don't understand why they need to charge me $16 for a corned beef sandwich* that will last me until June.

* Prices no longer valid. This was years ago. I'll bet the sandwiches are $24 now...

You haven't had a real pizza until you try a Gino's East deep dish pizza. I highly recommend it!

Barf! I cannot stand the stuff. It should be against the law to call that Chile. Maybe, Chile like substance.

Dallas - Javier's - one of my favorite all time in the US.
