Re: The "Foodie" in all of us...


Outstanding work Monkey, thanks for the link.

You can’t go wrong with the Ferry Building suggestions, although that could change as they are jacking up rents down there, and they could manage to screw up a great place to visit.

Fearful

Unfortunately, the ]Tsar Nicoulai Caviar shop that was featured was one of the first casualties, closing last month.

I would add the ]Slanted Door to the mix as a fine substitute though.

I’m also a big fan of ]Yank Sing downtown as recommended.

I’m looking forward to checking out Chiarello’s ]Bottega this summer when I’m up north in the wine country. It looks fantastic, and he hits them in Bondsian fashion.

Also a fan of D&D, but I too have been less than overwhelmed by Fieri’s own places. He did a recent show on ]Q out in the Richmond.

A good stop before a few pints at the ]Plough, and the Duck Confit they feature is a four bagger.

Onto the Protland scene, I was watching the other night Chef and caught the piece they did on ]Pok Pok. It looks like a great place and is definitely on my radar should I find myself in Portland.

i'm only saying that because my step grandmother said [sign in to see URL] you're a large party going to eat it's going to cost you. the dim sum is only 2 pieces per steamer. usually it's 3 pieces per steamer. so if you think about [sign in to see URL]'s going to cost you an extra $[sign in to see URL] (i believe that's the price for "small" item)

Speaking of dim sum Monkey, you ever go to the Imperial Seafood restauarant over in Concord across from Fry's?

Just had it yesterday and it wasn't bad at all.

I'm not going to sit here and try and tell you that you won't drop some cash at Yank Sing, or that you can't find more food for your money somewhere else.

You will lighten your wallet during your visit there, the portions are not overwhelming, they do add up quickly, and if you like some booze with your chow . . .

That said, Yank Sing still has some pretty tasty dim sum.
 
But don't take my word for it, see what the folks at Michelin and Zagat have to say about the ]place.
