Best 7500 yen meal in Central Tokyo

So, I'm in Tokyo on a business trip with a 7500 yen/day food expense budget. Thing is, I tend to eat cheap and I've been averaging more like 3000 yen/day. Even still, the food has been fantastic. But tomorrow, I would like to make the most of my expense account. Assuming that I eat free hotel buffet for breakfast and lunch, where would you recommend I go (within about a half hour train ride of Tokyo Station) for the best (pescatarian) meal 7500 yen can buy?

Good "homestyle" restaurant in Zurich?

I'm looking for a good homestyle restaurant in Zurich. By "homestyle" I mean good examples of local cuisine. The typical websites (tripadvisor, urbanspoon) haven't been particularly helpful. Cost doesn't matter. Bonus points for links to menus!

Tell me about eating in Andalucia

I will be spending ten days in southern Spain at the end of next month. I love food and am more excited about the eating than maybe any other part of the vacation - not just because of the food itself but because the whole eating culture and schedule is different from what I am used to as an American.

Chicago Filter : Where should we stay? What should we do?

My SO and I are planning a long weekend trip up to Chicago with another couple in the fall. Wondering about the places to stay and things to do. We will most likely be driving so we'll have a car to get around town, so where we stay doesn't neccesarily have to be in the hub of all the touristy crap that we'll no doubt want to do at some point. I'm more concerned about other things. Details inside. [more inside]

Kid-friendly restaurants in Williamsburg Brooklyn?

So some friends of mine, who have a two-year-old, are coming to visit me this weekend in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I don't have kids, but I know there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood, so I know there has to be some kid-friendly dining options. I only moved in to the neighborhood about a month ago, so I have not had time to explore. Ideally I'd like to find a bunch of kid-friendly restaurants in the neighborhood and send the kid's mom a list of them so that she can pick one out. Any recommendations?

Reasonable Eats in the Napa/Calistoga Area

We're driving back from Harbin Hot Springs to the Bay Area on Monday (through Napa, Calistoga, Healdsburg, etc.) and we're looking for a place to have a reasonably priced dinner (though I know some places will be closed on a Monday). This means nicer than deli sandwiches but no Cyrus, no French Laundry, etc. Any recommendations?

Restaurant Recommendations in Vienna VA (near Jammin' Java)?

Restaurant Recommendations in Vienna VA (near Jammin' Java)? My wife and myself have tickets for Willie Nile at Jammin' Java on Saturday night. We've decided to call this Saturday evening our Valentine's Day and make a night of it by getting a decent dinner before the show. I know there are a gazillion restaurants in the general area - what's a good non-chain choice for dinner for 2 in the $40-50 neighborhood? My wife doesn't like sushi, so that is out. I'm familiar with the chili at Jammin' Java, but hunched over a folding chair trying to eat chili without spilling it isn't the dinner scene we are looking for Sat night; no matter how damn good the chili might be.

So long, Screwy! See you in St. Louie!

I'll be in St Louis with my girlfriend and her 8 year old daughter Sunday evening through Monday afternoon to hit the Zoo. We wanted to do one meal at Crown's Candy and one at Pappy's Smokehouse but they will both be closed by the time we get there Sunday. Any scoop on good St Louis eats open on a Sunday night? Any style is good, but rustic, homey and even "divey" is better (The girl is partial to BBQ, soul food, baked goods, Mexican and Italian). There seem to be many great restaurants, but the "open-Sunday-night" bit seems to be the challenge. Thanks!

Where are the gourmet Chinese restaurants?

Why are there so many Chinese restaurants in America that serve really cheap, low quality food, compared to, say, Thai restaurants, which seem to always have fresher ingredients? I've seen what really good, genuine Chinese food looks like from shows like Iron Chef, and I'd love to try some, but every restaurant I eat at always seems like they serve reheated food out of vats. How can you find the good Chinese restaurants in your town? I know they must be out there.
