Hello All!

I'm a student at Clark University and my mom's coming to pick me up this week and I was hoping for some suggestions for dinner places. I operate on a VERY limited college budget, so I haven't been out much, and I love to try new places.

I've been to (and for the most part enjoyed): Rovezzi's, Surya, One Love, Da Lat, Sole Proprieter, Flying Rhino, and Annie's Clark Brunch.

Any suggestions of a new restaurant (any kind, no cuisine preference - besides sushi, we're not huge sushi fans). In the moderate price range, preferably? All suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I think you would do well at Via down on Shrewsbury Street. Or Sahara over near the Sole. Both are moderately priced and are very good. Also, maybe Dino's. It's on Lord Street over off Plantation Street. You can't see it from the road and it looks like you are driving into someone's driveway when you approach the restaurant. Moderately priced, great Italian food (some of the best risotto I have had). I don't think I have ever read anything about Dino's on these boards - I highly recommend it.

      You may want to check out Bocado for yummy tapas. Great food and atmosphere..portions decent sized. You can tailor the amount of food to your budget

          I'd 2nd Dino's- Food is moder priced and VERY tasty. Bocado is good but kind of pricey which I believe was one of your criterias...
