The one restaurant you resolve to try in 2007?

What's the one place you keep reading about here, or keep driving past, or you've heard your friends talk about that you vow to try this year? For me, it's Nook. It's constantly getting recommended, and it looks like a place Mr. Writergirl will enjoy. (It would have been Taqueria Sanchez, but I tried that today, yum!) I'd love to hear others'!

  1. Hey! When I saw your post's title, I immediately thought "The Nook!"

    Also, it's not a "try" so much as "go back to again after too many years" -- Musso & Franks.

      Great minds (or palettes!?) think alike!

        Me too! We've been trying to get to Nook for AGES... but lately have been on a health kick and I KNOW I'm going to have to order that Mac N Cheese...

          Second on Providence -- though the way I've been saving up I may actually be able to embark on a trip there by March! :)

            Mission completed! A sublime experience though surely not a place I'll go again anytime soon (due to budget and because there are so many other places I want to check out). Cut & Bistro K are next on my list.

            Will be bloggin' about my Providence nine-course meal soon.

            PS - wee for getting the 100th reply to this! :)

              Please do post your review. That's on my hit list after AOC, but not sure if it's worth the trouble & expense and towing an 8 year old along. Saw a few mixed reviews...

        2. Hatfield's! Everything I read about it sounds amazing and I salivate when I look over their menu.

            GO TO HATFIELDS. Get the tasting menu with the wine pairings. They have a very impressive hard-to-find wine list. The food and service is outstanding. Unique, delicious, with little bursts of flavors exploding in your mouth.

            And their rolls are crispy and delicious-- YUM.

              Me too! Met too! Every time someone mentions it I wonder why I haven't just tried it already. Hopefully sooner than later.

            2. BABITA.

              I have been wanting to try it and never seem to get there. I think 2007 is the year.

                  I was at Babita last night for the Chiles en Nogada. Wonderful as always.

                  Yup! I need to take SO! :)

                    I guess next would be Cut.
