Good eats, groceries in Tri-Cities area?

zootzie | Feb 18, 2010 03:19 AM

My family and I will be moving to the Tri-Cities from Europe and I'm wondering about places to eat and shop. We're pretty excited to have access to Mexican food, spicy food that's actually spicy, and hopefully a wider range of vegetables/other ingredients again that we enjoyed before we left.

So, for restaurants: I've read in a couple of places that people complain it's mainly bad chains, which is a bummer as it seems there's a size-able population in the area. Any stand outs? We're open to any cuisine, as long as it's tasty! Are there any dim sum places? Indian?

For shopping: Are there any good Asian and European grocers? It looks like there's a farmer's market (but only starting in June?), how are the offerings there? How about bakeries? Any local offerings I should keep an eye out for? Thanks for any info in advance, we are pretty excited to come back to the States!
