Founding Farmers was awesome!  I had the fried chicken and waffles with mac and cheese (which gave my favorite mac and cheese at Southside 815 a run for its money...but Southside is still my favorite.  Unless I can go to Cochon in NOLA).  Had the bread with dipping areas and warm cookies for dessert.  Husband had the ahi tuna salad and liked it.  Thought the presentation was a little bit strange, but it was tasty.

Loved their cocktails. 

And I thought it was priced really well.

I went to Cinghale's on Saturday night.  Started off with the Arugla salad then the Duck Lasanga, and for my entree I had Bronzini with potatos and for desert I had Tiramisu.  My wife had some squid ink spaghetti with perwinkless and squab as her entree.   The food was pretty good but I don't know it was worth the price.  I still prefer Sotto Sopra for Italian and it is cheaper.

There is one down the street from my work and I have yet to visit it!  Is it really that good?



If this is in reference to Nando's... yes, yes it is.

Thanks for this recommendation.  There's a Nando's next to my hotel for MCM.  I like plain chicken and mashed potatoes before a marathon and this looks like it will fit the bill!

I have to add that since this recommendation was posted I've been 3 time and seriously love the hot sauce the smother all over it.  The spicy green peas are great too.  The spicy stuff may not be the best for a marathon....

Yeah, I have to eat their more boring food.  Maybe I'll go back after the race for the spicy versions!

Any issues with the amount of red onion in the dish? I easily could've just had a bad chef the night I had it.

Also re: Nandos... I may have posted this earlier in the thread, but they now sell the hot sauce at Giant, Safeway, Target, etc. Prepare to eat their hot sauce on EVERYTHING.

Are you trying to get all of your dining experiences in before the kid comes?
