Lovies BBQ

3420 Piedmont Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305

While in GA last week, we stopped into Lovies for some BBQ.  The place is located on the backside of another restaurant down the driveway. They have an outside patio, and plenty of seating. The staff were welcoming, and the atmosphere was nice.  We ordered a trio of tri tip, pork, and ribs which was really good. I had the mac n cheese as a side which was very good. The dinner was about 17 pp if I remember correctly and very good.

Hambones Bar & Grill

10056 Adams Ave, Huntington Beach, CA 92648

I have eaten here several times and tried several things on the menu.  The tri tip is tender and not dry, the pulled pork is good and so are the candy yams.  My favorite is the pork ribs they are by far better than Chicago Ribs, Newport Rib and Louis Red Oak.

The bbq sauce is a little bland, I get the spicy one which isn’t spicy at all but just right for me. The restaurant is new and the decor is nice. They just opened so there are a few kinks like they should check the orders before they go out…I have gone for take out and they forgot my cobbler.  And the collard greens are bland not seasoned like we do down south…..But over all very good and close to our home.

Plan B

Plan B
(860) 231-1199
138 Park Rd
West Hartford, CT

Plan B is sure to be on the top of everybody’s list of favorite restaurants soon. Burgers are what Plan B does best, and they have created some tasty, inventive burgers you won’t soon forget. Their original burger is outstanding, but for something a little more exciting, you should try the East Coast Burger, topped with roasted tomato, fried onions, horseradish cream and—wait for it—lobster. With all of the tantalizing creations on the menu it is hard to choose just one thing; a solution is the Burger Flight, offering a selection of palm-size beef, chicken, and salmon burgers. The restaurant contains an attractive, open, curved bar with an exposed wooden beam liquor rack in the front. It is a popular place to go for drinks—the bar area is usually packed on the weekends—but be sure to bring an appetite: it is almost impossible to resist the menu items. How can you say no to the Beef Wellington Bites: mini nibbles of rare steak in flaky pastry atop a sea of rich blue cheese dressing?

For many people Italian food starts and ends with Pasta. And for the best in town, the absolutely freshest homemade pasta, there is no place other then Bugatti’s. You’ll find all the favorites from Angel Hair to Ziti, all blanketed in an elegant variety of sauces, served up in artful displays. You’ll find the classics along with some less traditional fair like a chicken ravioli in a curry sauce sprinkled with raisins and apples. While best known for the pasta’s, especially a lasagna that is available only once a month that is to die for, Buggatti’s also offers salads, a variety of Italian meat, chicken and fish dishes and a wonderful array of thin crust pizza’s.

West Los Angeles is bustling with great sushi eateries, each offering fun atmosphere along with fine Japanese cuisine. The several months- old En, has its own appeal. Above the bar area, an enormously large red symbol of En (sushi party) restaurant welcomes numerous guests. If you’re looking for an intimate feeling, several tables near the windows could be the right choice as the artificial waterfall adds peacefulness to the modern décor.

Their Tofu salad (sweet fried tofu & tofu with sesame oil dressing) is creatively presented and exceptionally flavorful. A neat martini menu is a welcome surprise at the sushi restaurant.

Nisen Sushi

(631) 462-1000
5032 Jericho Tpke
Commack, NY 11725

While most sushi restaurants on Long Island typically offer one brand of hot sake to compliment your meal, Nisen’s drink menu offers an extensive selection of hot and cold sakes, sold either by the bottle, by the carafe, or by wooden box. A vast array of wines and cocktails, including an assortment of creatively flavored martinis also graces the drink menu. This, coupled with the stylishly modern Japanese décor more befitting of a trendy Manhattan hotspot, helps Nisen stand apart from your typical Long Island sushi restaurant. But what about the food? Not to worry, the sushi chefs are experts at their craft, and the ingredients are nothing short of superb. Aside from the normal fare you’d expect to find in a sushi restaurant, Nisen takes great pride in its special sushi creations, some created by the chefs themselves, others by imaginative patrons, who subsequently had the honor of having the dish named after them.

Z Cucina di Spirito

Z Cucina di spirito
1368 Grandview Avenue
Grandview Heights, Ohio 43212

Bright, clean setting that is almost lost amid a cluster of charming cafes and wine bars on Grandview Ave. It’s a neighborhood bar with edge. Executive Chef Brian Pawlak does an excellent job of straying away from classic and boring Italian American favorites, while still managing to center in on regional Italian dishes such as the Veal Saltimbocca Alla Romana and duck Breast Piedmontese. The wine list focuses on a few regions of Northern Italy such as Tuscany, Piedmont, Apulia, and Veneto. You can also round off dinner with a Crème Brulee Martini.
