    resaurant lineup for May 2014

    We always have such difficulty choosing restaurants! Too many restaurants, not enough nights!
    Our May trip is to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.
    Here are the restaurants where we are planning:
    Madame Janette
    Barneys
    Amadeus
    Hung Paradise
    Buccaneer
    LaVista on Seafood extravaganza night

    West Deck or Pinchos

    Scott's Brats for breakfast a couple of times
    Lindas

    Paul said….no changes this is what we ARE doing
    reservations for MJ, Barefoot and Element will be made this week!

    I'd go with WD over Pinchos. We talked to several folks who had had negative experiences at Pinchos. We ate at WD and thought it was great. Some friends went there on our recommendation and loved it too.

    We did not have great meals at Cuba's Cookin' this year. They were practical empty on a couple of nights. Conjecture is they have to move to the high rise area to survive.

    We used to get Kings ribs. They were near Kong Hing grocery then they disappeared. Where are they located now?

    King ribs last time we were there was located down the road about a mile from the roundabout at Wendy's
    Coming from the north make your way 3/4 way round the roundabout and go straight for mile or so. King ribs on left.

    here is their facebook

    We've had many good meals there too. We used to stop at the old location for Cuban sandwiches for lunch.

    Friday night was different. I can't be sure the lower digestive system distress I had for two days after we ate there was connected to the dining experience but the thought occurred to me.

    They've also added tables out where their sign is and on the dance floor.

    We ate at Pinchos last week. It has always been one of our favorites. The food was good but the service was TERRIBLE. I'll post more about it in my trip report when I get home. Our best meals so far have been Azzuros and Chalet Suisse.
