Dine... where next?

  • f

Hey 'hounds. I'm trying to take in as much as possible in this "Dine" week - lots of places I can't afford on a regular basis.

Here's the four places on my list. Can y'all help me prioritize? Particularly with regard to Chaya Brasserie, as I can't find any babble (good or bad) about it on this board.

Chaya Brasserie
One Market

One Market's menu looks great, and it got a good review earlier. Rubicon is, well... a place I've always wanted to try. But are they vegetarian-friendly?

Help me, 'hounds! Actually... does anyone want to join me for dinner Friday or Sunday night? I think I've worn most of my friends out!

  1. For starters, you might read the Dine Around posts on Chaya, One Market and Maya that have been posted this week. Try using the "find" function on your browser menu to search the message board and they'll pop right up.

    To add another data point, I'd been to Chaya a few months ago for apps only and decided not to stay for dinner.

      Thanks, Melanie, but please note that I HAVE read these posts, and that's how I narrowed DOWN my selection to begin with!

      Now I'm just trying to figure out which ones not to miss... Chaya is obviously off the list. And I MIGHT just be able to pull off the other 3 - although it will most definitely cause a slight imbalance in my checkbook (and the scales, I'm sure!)

      Speaking of the search function, though... I did a search for all of these places trying to find older posts - one mention came up for "Chaya" - and Wendy's didn't... even though hers has the word in its title, and the one that DID come up was only a reference in the body. How does one search more effectively?

        Forgot to mention that experience with Rubicon has been mixed.

        The main search engine is broken and I don't know the ins and outs of what's wrong. It doesn't seem to pick up more recent posts. It does have the advantage of finding the search terms in the body of a message.

        You should also try using the "find" function in your browser menu to find key words in subject lines on the message board. This can cover some of the gap in recent messages that the search engine has not indexed yet. We would all be advised to make our subject lines descriptive to aid use of this tool.

        If more readers would subscribe to ChowNews and support the site financially, some day the search engine could be repaired.
