Cafe Piazza Dolce
831 Main Street
Winchester, MA 01890
Phone: (781) 838-6092
The quaint Cafe Piazza Dolce, Winchester, MA. They have a wide variety of items to choose from. From apple strudel in the morning to panini for lunch and pizza for dinner. Don't forget the Sicilian cannoli and the best sfogliatella I've ever had. Wi Fi, very good service and the people are always friendly. I'd also have to say about 30 different coffee and espresso drinks with imported espresso from Naples. Check it out. I give it an A+.

642 9th Avenue
New York (Manhattan), NY 10036
Phone: (212) 245-6260
You have a great site and thank you for creating it.
I want to recommend a place in New York that I go to when I'm in that particular area. New York has great pizza places and you just have to know where to go in a specific area. They are all small places and they vary somewhat in their recipe. This place is called Pizza Plus at 642 9th Avenue, corner of 45th Street. It's about a block away from the theatres and near the Port Authority. Besides pizza, they have most Italian dishes, but it won't win any awards for decorative art. Some tables are with high chairs with backs, and a couple of regular tables in the back. Don't count on table cloths!

46 Mechanic Street
Leominster, MA 01453
Phone: (978) 534-1227
This is a fairly new takeout place (with a few tables) in a former Cumberland Farms behind Monument Square downtown. Quick, delicious and very reasonable for the quality (Applebees should be ashamed of themselves). Great ribs, smoky pulled pork, and great sides including garlic mashed potatoes. Warning: I spent 28 bucks for two takeout dishes here (when my wife and I were REALLY hungry), and we got three more meals out of all the food we got. Amazing! So definitely try it, 'cause I want them to stay in business. And I can't afford to keep them that way myself.

Smoke 'n' Pit Bar-B-Que
1641 N Tamiami Trail
North Fort Myers, FL 33903
Phone: (239) 997-7982
This is a real southern BBQ experience (wood booths and floors, checkered table cloths, rolls of paper towels on every table) unlike some places you find up north.
Smoke 'n' Pit is famous for their baby back ribs, which are fall-off-the-bone(an unusual thing for baby backs). Their BBQ beans are terrific, too, and it's all-you-can-eat beans, potato salad and black-eyed peas at the "Vittles Bar" that comes with all the entrees. The prices are extremely reasonable ($7-$14) as well.
A great spot for Red Sox fans to hit during spring training--if you can find it!

14 Sea Street
Northeast Harbor, ME 04662
Phone: (207) 276-3965
The restaurant in the illustration on the main page of this section; that is, Docksider in Northeast Harbor, Maine, is as likely as any I can think of, not only because of the superb quality the restaurant attaches to its fish and seafood dishes, but also because of the idyllic village it resides in - to saunter through the town, to be deafened by its serenity, and then to end up at the Docksider for unbeatable crab cakes - well, enough evidence to convey my feelings about this place and this wonderful little restaurant.

Thompson House Eatery
Jackson, NH 03846
Phone: (603) 383-9341
The Thompson House Eatery in Jackson, NH is wonderful for dinner. This is a renovated farm house that turns out seasonal meals that are fantastic. They use fresh produce from their own farmstand. I highly recommend this place if you're up north!

Starry Night Cafe
5467 Route 7
Ferrisburg, VT 05456
Phone: (802) 877-6316
My favorite restaurant is Starry Night Cafe in Ferrisburg, VT. It's a wonderful, intimate, unpretentious spot for dinner. The servers are always warm and friendly, and the decor is charming (especially the artwork by Vermont artists, and the hand-carved wooden bar). Much of their food comes from local farms, so you're supporting the community when you dine. And the cornmeal-crusted calamari is to die for!

W 67th Street
New York (Manhattan), NY 10023
Phone: (212) 874-2700
Wanted to let you know about one of my favorite eateries in Manhattan. It's called OLD JOHN'S, located on West 67th Street, right off Broadway. I've never had a bad meal there and the prices are moderate. It's also good for brunch. It's unpretentious and the service is good. Try one of their chocolate cakes, as they have a few varieties.

145 Nantasket Avenue
Hull, MA 02045
Phone: (781) 925-6336
Bridgeman's in Hull is a fantastic restaurant on Nantasket Beach. Bridgeman's has mostly Mediterranean and New American food. This may be one of the best restaurants in the Boston area, in my opinion. I can't wait until the summer to go on the outdoor deck!
