What favorite Places do you go to because of Chowhound

After a great meal last night at India Quality, and last week at New Bridge Cafe -- both places I likely never would have visited had I not read about them on this board -- I was thinking about the places people go to primarily because of Chowhound. What are your favorites places that you discovered primarily because of Chowhound?

[NOTE FROM THE CHOWHOUND TEAM: Thanks for starting this thread, Blumie! We hope you don't mind that we're going to sticky this thread to give it more prominence, and adopt your idea for our other boards.

Now that we've introduced our new Places feature http://www.chowhound.com/faq#linkmean , we'd love to hear about what restaurants, markets, or other great food vendors you've discovered because of discussions you've read here on Chowhound. Let us know, and while you're at it, try out the Places feature to add your favorite Places to the Places database.

Once you've made your post, we hope you'll go back to the Place entry and help populate it with information. If you've got a website address, info on whether they accept credit cards, parking tips, best time to call for reservations, etc., we hope you'll add that info to the Place entry to make that information much easier for all interested hounds to find.

If you have any questions/problems about this new feature, please post to this thread http://www.chowhound.com/topics/417583 Thanks! ]

  1. Definitely second New Bridge. Salts is another place I never tried until reading about it here. Kebab Factory is somewhere I NEVER would have tried, but am glad I did.

    1. A lot of the time CH points me toward menu items I never would have otherwise tried at restaurants I'm already familiar with, but recently I discovered Mulan and Shangri-La thanks to CH, for which I am eternally graeful! ;)

        I second Shangri-La. Also, Kariboo for African off Moody in Waltham.

        1. re: three of us

          Oh, wow, three of us, I somehow had missed Karibu on the boards... I will have to try it! Thanks for listing it here.

      2. Trattoria Toscana. Thanks!

        1. Zalek, Thai Moon, Prezza, Taranta, too name a few...

          1. Ken's Ramen - four blocks from our house, and I don't think we would have tried it if not for the raves here.

            Lots of other places we've tried because of CH recommendations, and lots of places I'd *like* to go to more often than we do, but we just don't eat out often enough! I'll second Trattoria Toscana among that group; we also had an excellent RW dinner (I know, I know...) at Beacon Hill Bistro based on recommendations here. That's definitely a place I'd like to get back to again! I'm sure I'll think of others.
