I've enjoyed the small plates much more than the entree's. The pastas have been excellent. I was disappointed in the pizza, but that was within the first month of opening. Haven't ordered one since, I should give it another try....

It's pretty much a hole-in-the-wall. A lunch only sandwich place in a light industrial area. Very good burgers. No inside tables, just patio picnic tables. I'd go back. ...

No, it was first time, went for anniversary. Had a great time. We were there 9/27-10/2, weather was great. Stayed in town for 2 nights and then went down to the Allison in Newberg for 3 nights.
The Allison is first class. If anyone wants to do the Willamette Valley, I highly recommend it....

Agree on Salt and Straw. Went three out of the 5 days in Portland. Favorite flavor was Pear and Blue Cheese, but all were great.
In that same stretch of Division, is Ava Gene's, a higher-end modern Italian place. Wife thought it was the best salmon dish she has ever had - and she's eaten a lot...

Had both Pok Pok's and MoPho's wings in the last 2 weeks. They are very similar with MoPho's being "wetter". Didn't really have a preference. Order them spicy at Pok Pok. Even then, they aren't very.
Richter's cookbook looks good....

Agree. MLU-CHO has seen a big jump over the last two years. Check out Richmond. Sometimes the difference is enough to justify the one hour drive.
Also, US Air out of Jackson used to beat Delta out of Monroe by a good bit, but not anymore....

Good list, a lot of ground to cover.
Minetta Tavern is my favorite place in the city. Just feels like NYC to me. Difficult reservation to get at decent times, but it can be done. They also have a great brunch.
My wife would say to swap Gramercy Tavern for Gotham Bar & Grill for lunch. It i...

Few points from a parent whose child is at one of the top schools mentioned.
If your daughter tests well, your mailbox will be filled with letters and expensive, glossy direct mail from colleges. Some will be the big names, others you will have never heard of. These are great to learn about the s...

Komi is a much different experience than the other two. It only serves a set tasting menu.
Jaleo and Zaytinya are great, but more casual and less expensive. If it was a bigger group, I'd say either of those. Since it is just the two of you, I'd go to Komi. It is worth it....
