    Dinner Advice - New Spots

    Hey Everyone,

    I will be going on my 12th trip in a week and I am just curious on any new places that have opened up. I have been to almost all of the big spots such as, French Steak House, Blossoms, Texas De Brazil, Flying Fishbone, etc. I am looking to try some new places that are good and not overly priced. Granted, budget isn't much of an issue, but some variation in prices is always nice.

    I was just in Aruba in Oct, and I did the usuals. I want something new and exciting! Andrea... I know you know places. Help me!

    Thanks everyone!

    Chris

    We have a new favorite.

    Hung Paradis @ the Seaport Marketplace, directly across from the Seaport Casino

    Last few visits we had somehow forgotten to have Amadeus on our list.
    Well, AMADEUS was on our may list and we LOVE it.

    We also love COOKS, downtown.

    As Bully says give Barefoot a try!

    And............Marandi gets some great reviews too.

    Oh there are just so many! Too many restaurants, not enough nights.

    We like the following that are less expensive than our usual favorites like Screaming Eagle, Passions, Barefoot, Carte Blanche, etc:

    Bingo's
    Amadeus
    Carambola
    Le Bistro
    Barney's
    Wacky Wahoo
    Tulip

    If money is no object, loved a couple of new places that I tried in April: White and 2 Fools And A Bull.

    Not a new restaurant, but a good local, is Gostoso. It is a little difficult to find if you drive. They have driving instructions of their website.
