What's your favorite place to eat in the whole wide world?

Other than your home, of course.

Any place in London. That's where I'm happiest. Next would be any place in Hobart Tasmania, I'm really just as happy in Hobart, but the flight is 14 hours and I can't always afford upper class. On the other hand, London is always free first class even though it's still a 11 hour flight.

We love to cook and eating at home is my favorite thing in the world. I live in a cold climate, and this is the time of year when we get ready to hunker down, and cook and eat and snuggle with good books, good friends, and good movies.

Actually, "home" is the correct answer, becaue take-out food is one of my favorite things.

My perfect lazy evening involves some takeout curry or shwarma or gnocchi, my couch, and my TV.

A picnic with friends on a remote beach

The Nautilus in Port Douglas Australia was unforgettable. It's set in a rainforest, and there's an extraordinary line of spot lit palms like Parthenon columns, that edge a ridge, falling away into darkness. The warm tropical night, scented by ginger, and the just-harvested food made for a deep sensory experience. It was created by Sean Connery's wife Diane Cilento, Countess Volpi. The night I was there a very heavy palm frond fell from a great height on a neighbouring dining table and cleved the glass table in two, so the whole thing, table cloth, glasses, dishes just folded in on itself and collapsed: the diners could have been severely injured or killed. If it had happened in a city there would have been a big drama no doubt, but no one thought anything of it: the staff relaid a second table in moments, and the atmosphere was so relaxing, trippy and sensual one just went to the flow. The very simple entree of sizzling fragrant tomatoes, basil and a tagliatelle like no pasta I've ever tasted before was so incredible I never got to the main course: simply ordered it again. This was years ago and the chef has retired to a Danish island, so it's probably all changed.

I know this sounds touristy but I used to love the sandwiches at Stage Deli. I loved the mile high sandwiches, the mustard, slaw and pickles. Even the crowd. I'm sad it closed.

In my hometown, there is a place called La Fonda De Bosque that has a great Sunday brunch. I can eat there every Sunday.

You'd go to any dump in London and say this is my favorite place to eat in the whole world just because it's in London?

You're a riot.

Dante & Luigi's, 10th and Catherine streets in Philadelphia. Family owned since 1899. The best gnocchi, and I've eaten great gnocchi, in the world. Fantastic elegant old world charm. There was a mafia hit there in the 90's. Can't get more authentic then that.

R40 - no, that's Victor's Cafe, or I think Franco and Luigi's.

Dante and Luigi's have been around forever. When I was a kid, they had the same waiters there until I was in my 20's. I can still remember some of them.

The mob hit was on Halloween. Shooter came in dressed in a costume, no one paid any attention. Think they shot Stanfa's son, not sure. They cops took his laptop, couldnt decode it.

4 Sons Texas Hot Lunch in Kane, Pennsylvania.

by Anonymousreply 4811/11/2013

It was Phil Schmidt's and it was located in East Chicago.

They specialized in lake perch and frog legs. You didn't need butter or tartar sauce for the perch; it was prepared perfectly and served hot.

Salads were steakhouse fare; chunky bleu cheese dumped on top of iceberg lettuce wedges with huge ripe tomatoes and some decorative rabbit food on the side.

Vegetables were tortured glop, but the potatoes were fried or baked to perfection and the relish trays looked like something out of South Beach.
