    Do you have a favorite place? I find it difficult to find a place with reasonable
    prices and quality food, it seems the norm these days to pile up your plate with
    taste less junk.

    The Bone Yard, steaks and BBQ{southern style}, with 100 different kinds of ale to wash it all down with. A really cozy seating area, the big fire place will be burning all the time now. One the weekends local 3 peice bands play, its always fun.
    A more then you can eat dinner with a drink, is about 8.00 dollars{US}, I've never had a bad meal there.

    Nobu in Tribeca is a great place. I've been to other really good places in New York and Los Angeles/Pasadena, but can't remember their names. An honorable mention has to go to this sports bar in Boston that offered over 600 different beers, including the terrific North Coast Rasputin Stout (my personal favorite beer), but I can't remember the name of this place, either.

    If you guys are ever on 2nd St in Long Beach, be sure to check out Shannon's Bayshore. It's named after our member Swerve.

    My hubbys in the fortunate position of having had too much Nobu (London) and its offshoots work dinners of late, so he was thrilled to be going to Dallas and hoping to have a big steak there-turns out they've just opened the Dallas Nobu and thats where he was taken!
    Personally, I like cafes in parks. The Orangery in Kensington Palace being the ultimate! The one in St James' Park is nice too.
