Hi guys,
I'm new here, from Brunswick, Maine.
There may have been threads like this in the past,
but I wanted to create it, anyway.

What's the last restaurant you ate at?
For me, it was El Camino's (Mexican Restaurant
in Brunswick, Maine), w/my BF! :-)

    Cantina Sforza in Westport. Loved it.

      La Fogata in Pittsfield, MA. Delicious Columbian food. One Carne Asada plate and one pork loin steak plate. Both came with tons of rice, homemade beans and fried plantain.

      Also they served 2 different sauces/salsas to go with them. One was a chimichurri and the other was a red salsa - both delicious.

      2 people, 2 dinners, 2 beers - $30 (not including tip).

        The Ugly Duckling Loft, upstairs from the Whistling Swan in Sturbridge.....stopped in for a quick bite on the way home from a long day trip to the Berkshires (from RI). I had a wonderful bowl of mushroom & roasted garlic soup and a glass of pinot noir.

          Central Kitchen, Cambridge MA. Perfect dinner. Here's a post about that meal.

            Is the enormous room still upstairs from central kitchen. I use to love having a meal at central then head upstairs to the enormous room. I always thought this was a great pairing of establishments under the same roof.

              Yes, I believe it is. At least the Elephant is still on the door.

                I do miss the elephant. Except for the few lucious years of lounges in the now defucnt ladder district - the enormous room was my favorite place to relax. And certainly after a central kitchen meal.

                Last restaurant? Maru in Clinton, CT. It's no Jae's or Ginza but will have to do for now. Nice people in there

            Brian's Restaurant in Uxbridge, MA has the typical all American variety. Fresh seafood, great burgers, soup and bread bar. I go in often and have yet to be disappointed. Check out their web site. http://www.briansrestaurant.com/home.htm

              Sichuan Gourmet in North Billerica, MA yesterday for lunch.. (they also have a second location in the Framingham/Natick area)
              What a great place. Authentic Sichuan cooking (if you go, don't order the "ordinary" chinese food - you know, General Gaus, etc -- go for their sichuan cooking)

              I had my favorite dish there -- Jha Jiang Noodle Soup with Spicy Sauce -- $6.95 before tax/tip.

              Tonight, I'm going to the Post Office Pub in North Grafton, MA to watch the finals of the "Post Office Pub Karaoke Idol Contest". Good pub food and more there.

                  Mine was Saturday at The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport, ME. Not a restaurant but we did sit on their benches outside.

                    Dos Gringos, West Dover, VT with my wife last night.
                    $3 margarita's 1/2 price appetizers (every Wednesday) and we both had one of the sepcials - pulled pork burritos with rice and refried beans.
                    Tasted great!!

                      We just got back on Sunday from a week on the Cape. The last night we always eat at Moby Dicks in Wellfleet. IMO it has the BEST lobster rolls on the Cape as well as really great chowder. I tried to lobster rolls at Friendly Fisherman as recommended on this board but I think the one from MB is superior.

                        Cafe Nuevo in Providence, last week. Martini, pizza appetizer, wonderful steak, mashed potatoes, spinach, red wine recommended by server, cappucino.

                          I eat out for lunch and dinner at least six days a week (rarely eat breakfast). So the last restaurant I was in certainly isn't thrilling or anything, but who can do Clio every day?

                          (It was a burger at Costello's in JP.)

                              Shish Kebab House of Afghanistan in West Hartford, CT. It opened last week, I think. I had a lamb kebab (I asked for it to be mildly spiced), a slice of eggplant with some yogurt sauce on top, and some spinach rice.

                                        Another favorite for me is Flatbread Pizza in Portland, Maine.
                                        Ate there w/my whole family & BF not too long ago.
