Re: What are your favorite joints in SF? (and nearby environ

Decided that if we could get reservation at State Bird we'd do that Saturday. If not, we'd go to SPQR. Managed to snag a reservation. I sat at the computer 60 days prior to reservation date, OpenTable page open filled in with all the appropriate info. Watched the seconds count down to midnight, clic...

Re: What are your favorite joints in SF? (and nearby environ

Hmm... Just wrote up pretty lengthy post, opened up new tab to look something up, and my post disappeared. (I'm on iPad.) So, what was a long story is now shorter. (Probably a good thing.) Long weekend with husband. Two nights, basically three full days. Tentative plans, but definitely open to sugge...

Re: Mamma Mia pizza -- problems?

I meant to bring this up a few weeks ago, and was reminded by the ever-inquisitive folks on Next Door.

Sign up on the door "closer for vacation" for at least 2-3 weeks. Still closed as of last weekend.

Little one and I will be there a bit earlier and order for ourselves. We have to get out earlier than everyone else!

Friday 1/16 - Welcome Chicken + Donuts Ramen

Spied this over on Instagram.

http://instagram.com/p/x4oSwpQd01/?modal=true

I normally miss these lunches because we eat early, but 10:30 is perfect timing for the little one and me. Thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone else was interested.

MOD - edited to correct date.

Re: St Francis

I find myself comparing St. Francis and Beckett's Table all the time. We've had better service and significantly better food at St. Francis from start to finish during our last few trips. I agree with you on the St. Francis/Beckett's comparison. While I wouldn't say St. Francis is significantly bet...

Re: Angry Crab Shack

Driving around the 'hood today and noticed an Angry Crab sign on the corner of 28th and Indian School (Sprouts shopping center). Signed read "Angry Crab and BBQ," so I wasn't sure if it was the same place, but looks like it is. http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/bella/2014/07/angry_crab_shack_mesa_new...

Re: Payson Area Restaurants

My grandparents live out in St. Johns. (Where? Yeah, I'm still not really sure either.) We always stop at Alfonso's on the way. It's just quick Mexican, but it's along Payson's main drag, quick, and tasty. Not so much somewhere you'll hang out for the ambiance, but perfect mid-roadtrip place to stop...

Re: Reathrey Sekong - Cambodian

The chicken was excellent. So much fragrance. I also really enjoyed the pork. The pieces I had were quite fatty, but that's not really a complaint.

And because I am shameless, here's a snap of the wee one's tofu order.

Re: Martini Lunch at Durant's - Fri 7/18 @ 11:30 AM

Man, guessing this one isn't kid-friendly? ;)

Too bad too, because after 8 weeks of being home with two kids, a two martini is just what this mama needs.

So I reread what you wrote and I think it's pretty clear you guys are making it. I think I just got excited about the prospect of mac and cheese. Ignore me! :oops:

Re: PHXfn Potluck VI - Saturday, May 10th @ 3:30 PM

We're not sure what we're going to make yet but it looks like we need some side dishes so we're thinking a pasta salad of some kind, some mac and cheese for the kids, and maybe something else... Are you claiming this or suggesting it for someone else? I make a very good mac and cheese if you're not...

Re: Central Bistro

That artichoke was the best part of our meal a year ago. It was so good we went back specifically for it twice over the summer, and both times they weren't serving it. I mean I understand seasonality, but they make somewhat of a to-do about it being a "signature" item. So go back and get it while yo...
