If I were to take you to dinner where would we go?
Ah come on lucky1,
That is a loaded question with a wide variety of possible answers so I will bite on two possible scenarios.
Now, if you are female and neither of us was attached and a first date I'd say a more quiet place where we could sit possibly outside and get to know one another. Seafood would be a good selection.
Now, if you are male and it was a "boys night out" it would be much different setting, more activity and louder, outside at a Sports Bar or similar to share in some drinks, laughs and check out the games. A nice cold Salad or maybe some type of Pub food.
Now, if neither of the above would apply.....well I guess I'd be waving at you across the joint with whomever you took.
Mcdonalds. You can chose anything from the dollar menu.
so Lucky you can reverse the question if someone was to take you to dinner where would you want to go?
Very nicely done jerryl!
Any place would be ok with me, it would be a break from cooking. Lol
I did have a great steak meal at Sam & Harry's last year. As long as place is clean, great service and a great meal would make me happy.
How about a place where you can grill your how food? Maybe a RI with their grills outside.
That's cool, I go there quick meal and cheap. Once in awhile not healthy to eat fast food. As long as place is clean, some are yucky inside..
That would work but would prefer the Sam & Harry's restaurant.
Mama's Fish House on the island of Maui.
Love Mama's Fish House....unbeatable views and food to match.
where is it on Maui ?
It's just past the town of Pai'a on the roadway towards Hana. After passing through Pai'a town, the road turns slightly to the right-the entrance to the restaurant's parking lot is just to the left so don't drive too quickly. I believe there is either a 'picture' of a fishing boat or a 'large scale' model of a fishing boat with the restaurant's name. No ka oi! (It's the best!)
Since you're buyin', we'll dine at La Pergola or Guy Savoy. Finally see if 3 Michelin stars is all it's cracked up to be. If it's not, well, we're either still in Rome or still in Paris, so either way, it's a solid win.
By far the easiest question to answer since joining the crazy group:
THE CLOSEST "PALM" LOCATION FOR A 5 POUND LOBSTER
Looks pretty expensive outta my range as of now but good choice!
Have been lucky and been to both places, and both are very special and worth it! Met Guy Savoy, and he was one heck of a nice guy! La Pergola, is in a Hilton and also very special. Both are places you will never forget. Guy Savoy is a short walk from the Ren AdT, and La Pergola is a hefty cab ride from The Marriott, Via Vanetta in Rome. Glad you reminded me of these wonderful memories. (Sorry, the photo's are not working!).
The answer would change from day to day, depending on my mood and what the scale and my blood sugar test told me this morning, but here are a few possibilities.
1. Any good seafood spot on the New England coast where I could get a lobster that was swimming in the north Atlantic less than 24 hours ago. With it I'd love some New England style onion rings and a bowl of Indian Pudding, but the lobster would be the main attraction.
2. Antico Forno, in the North End of Boston for some great pasta and red sauce or a few slices of some of the best pizza that I've had anywhere. For desert we could go to the bakery around the corner for an amazing cannoli.
3. If we could go anywhere in the world, I'd consider Bistrotter in Paris.
4. If price were no object, I'd also think about the Inn at Little Washington, about 80 miles SW of DC. Never been there, but I never met anyone was unhappy about anything but the price.
For the most memorable places to dine that I would love to enjoy again:
La Tour d'Argent, Paris,
This is a wonderful view from the table. That's Notre Dame. Fantastic view of the Seine, as well as the food!
Dining at The Ritz in London, is very memorable. Luigi, is one of the great Mt'ds!
Gordon Ramsey's, on Hospital Road, London, is an experience, you will never forget. They are some of the nicest people to ever serve you!
Jean-Claude, is another one of the finest Mt'd's in the World. You will be treated wonderfully at this fine place!
There are more, but these are fabulous places to dine! Surprising, they are not as expensive as you might think. Just watch what you spend on appetizers, wine and desserts!
Very nice pictures Mr. Coin, particularly of Mrs. Coin!
Thank-you for your kind words!
You have plenty of great places in Houston to dine as well. Tony's, was always a favorite of mine. There are many, many fine places. There was a wonderful Italian place up near you in The Woodlands, but I forgot the name of it. However, the Woodlands CC, is also a very special place to dine as well.
If you were visiting me in Arizona - and picking up the tab! - I would say Binkley's Restaurant in Cave Creek, Arizona. Have eaten there several times, and it provides a unique, memorable and FUN dining experience. Google it, and check out the comments at OpenTable.com for more information. My first visit was for my wife's birthday and she felt like a queen.
Hmmmm, we have a couple of Italian spots up here in our neck of the woods, most are like Carrabbas or other chains. Are you referring to Amerigo's Grill and if so it is FABULOUS?
Yes, that is it!
Could not remember name, but some wonderful Scampi!
Thanks for the helpful information.
