re: Burger Boy
I agree for the nth time. If I were to fly to Italy to visit friends, I'd certainly be pissed off if they took me to Hard Rock or Hooters.
cincyn, seriously, you should be thinking of taking them out for Mexican (or any of the other Central American cuisines), Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, etc. (most of which is world class, some of the best outside of their respective homelands)), any of the hundreds of fusion joints, or even a good ol' steak...
Seems like coals to Newcastle but, if that is what is desired, the choices are slim. In addition to the ones mentioned by Servorg, the new AK on Abbott Kinney in Venice has a few Swedish dishes on offer, Spago and 3 Square have a few Austrian specialties, if Poiish will do, you can add Warszawa.
