    Dining list for November trip

    As I do every trip, I've started my "to go" list which we never really adhere to. There are just so many good restaurants we decided to toss the list and wing it. The exception is Thanksgiving. I always like to have a plan for the holiday. Over the years we've done the fine dining spots like MJ's, Quinta del Carmen, or Wilhemenia. So this time I'm leaning towards something casual. It will be rib night at Barneys so that might be a good choice, or possibly Bavaria. Since we're staying at the Bucuti we could go to Elements but some reason that is not appealing to me for the holiday.

    I drive Tom crazy when I can't decide!

    Like so many of us... you cannot decide..... think that's normal. We tried Elements in July and it was wonderful for a sunset dinner.... w/o feet in the sand, fantastic menu and superior service.

    good idea about "winging it"

    we have just one reservation for our upcoming November trip.....it is for The Restaurant @ Tierra Del Sol.
    we cancelled our MJ reservation as our son and DIL want to go too and they do not arrive til Nov 8.
    so, after we hear back from babysitter ( mariza) we will book our MJ for husband's 65th birthday dinner.

    barneys, gostoco, hung paradise and bavaria and le terraza italian are on our wing it list.
    hoping to catch up with act1966 and husband and hatters and husband to see if we can meet up for drinks!

    I wish Amadeus was still open. I loved it there for Thanksgiving. It's funny when we move over to the Renaissance I pretty much know where we'll end up going because there are so many places to walk to. When we're at the Bucuti I see us grabbing a taxi to old favorites.

    We are making a few reservations, but plan to wing it a lot, also. Since we usually go in Feb. we make a lot of reservations, because everything books up so quickly. I'm hoping that this trip will be more laid back. I'm looking forward to meeting Andrea and her hubby for drinks. I'm not sure when ACT 1966 is arriving, but I'd love to catch up with them, also. I know that would be a lot of laughs . Peggy, I wish you were arriving while we are there, but I think that you get there after we leave.

    We're arriving the 21st. I would have loved to meet up with everyone but it looks like we'll just miss everyone. We enjoy being there Thanksgiving week where I think more people enjoy the Holiday at home.

    Since you are staying at Bucuti, have you considered adding Ricardos to the mix? I've seen good reviews, and we will definitely try it will we are at ABC.
    For the Renn part of your trip are you considering Gostosos and Yemanja?

    I would love to be there for Thanksgiving, but I'll be at home, cooking.

    Tracey, Yemanja is definitely someplace I would like to try. We usually end up at West Deck, the Dutch Pancake House, Cafe dePlaza or Sidebar when we're at the Renaissance. I would like to try some place different and not be drawn to old favorites, but it's hard. Would also like to try Pastechia House.
