"The gnocchi appetizer was perfect and the striped bass entree was totally delicious. Hands down, this is the best restaurant in the western Boston suburbs. Oh, and the banana profiteroles dessert contained the best banana gelato one could eat!"

"The appetizers are the best. Stick with them. Lettuce wraps and duck buns are delicious. Entrees are overpriced."

Nostrana - Literally "ours' - invokes local. Simple food from honest ingredients. Pure. Regional. Italian.

"From the tasty Italian bread to the delicious grilled trout, this place is Italian heaven. Very reasonably priced fare in a high-ceilinged bistro atmosphere. The butterscotch budino (pudding) dessert is wonderful."

Oregon's only AAA four diamond and Forbes four star restaurant, The Painted Lady in Newberg offers two tasting menus nightly celebrating the products of their local neighbors- Oregon's world class ranchers, farmers and vintners. Inspired by the grand tradition of restoring Victorian homes across America, the restaurant uses classic culinary techniques to create a stunning modern menu. With timeless grace and a contemporary palate, The Painted Lady is more than a restaurant, it is an experience to remember.

"Without sounding over the top, this place is over the top. But in a great way. Absolutely perfect service combined with delicious food. Best meal for us in a long while (and we've had some pretty good meals!). The only other thing else to point out is that it's prix fix. We are not usually fans of this thpe of dining. However, the portions were small enough so you didn't feel too full at the end AND each dish was exquisite. If you are visiting the Willamette Valley, don't miss this place -- a must visit."

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Opened in Chicago in the fall of 2000, Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's has quickly built a reputation as one of Chicago's top steakhouses, featuring the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room and you'll understand why dinner at Joe's has quickly become one of Chicago's favorite social engagements.

"A great place in Chicago for seafood. Known for stone crabs but very expensive. The big negative is that it's way too noisy and the tables are close together."

Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"Great meals--scallops and trout. We did encounter one problem: We waited at least 20 minutes for our cocktails. However, our server, Adnane, did not charge for the drinks. He also gave us two free desserts. So, what started out as a bad experience turned into a wonderful evening."

"The menu was completely changed recently. It used to be upscale entrees. Now it's more tapas. Although we were a bit shocked when we looked at the menu, we were pleasantly surprised when the food arrived. Everything tasted good, especially the scallops and duck."
