    I live near Boston.

    The Grasshopper is in Allston. Its a completely vegan restaurant. Sooooo good! I'm not vegan anymore but I still adore it. They make wicked good curried eggplant and bamboo shoots. If you ever go there, everybody says to get the No Name. It's apparently fantastic.

    Dessert wise, Finale is this wonderful dessert place open only at night I believe.

    Also, Fire + Ice is this great restaurant where you choose your own food for a stir fry. Its really neat. Not sure if they have it in other cities?

    London - E&O, exactly the sort of food i love, service could not have been better (admittedly we were there by invitation), friendly atmosphere, surprisingly unpretentious. It also helps that it was the best date ever too!

    and The Ivy -I'm a sucker for good service (well it's refreshing when you've been dining out in France for the last few years!!)

    Bristol UK - Touareg, good food and the service is excellent, romantic atmosphere.

    France - As mentioned it's hard to find good service, even in the popular restaurants, although the restaurants in fine hotels are fantastic (Res. de la Pinede in St. Tropez and Le Mas Candille in Mougins). I don't think you can go far wrong in any restaurant in the village of Mougins in South of France - friendly atm, reasonable prices, great food which is beautifully presented, (it is supposed to be the gastronomic capital of Europe apparently) and :woot: good service!!

    I LOVED LOVED VONG at The Berkeley Hotel which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore..luckily Jean-Georges VONGerichten has several restaurants in New York...
    NEW YORK : VONG http://www.jean-georges.com/ The restaurant mixes to perfection french and vietnameese cuisine..this place is heaven! Try their "black plate" for a nibble of a lot of different wonderful things..or try the to-die-for shrimp satay with oyster sauce..Warm semi-fluid chocolate cake was VONG's invention um um um um:heart:

    If you come to Rome, go anywhere, except the places with the tourist menus... An advice is to take the tram like 5 stops out of the center and you will have great food!..
