Hi don't write on these boards too often, but I scan them for other tips on good places. Just wanted to put my two cents in on some restaurants that I went to recently and need your feedback on some others before I go.

First My comments:

LaVuelta have to agree with those that have been there. Great appetizers and the food is pretty good. Nice atmosphere too.

Pimenton, would not go back there. Read some of the early posts and have to agree. The food is not good at all nor is the service for that matter.

Riverview - new place that opened.I was taken there yesterday for a business lunch and it was well worth it. For $20 you get a three course meal - nice choices from a special lunch menu. Food was great. It's a very nice place. Have to go back for drinks one night, real nice lounge area.

Phillys was there for lunch too. I enjoyed the sandwich I had..pulled brisket. It was stacked high and the meat was very good. But, will not go back for lunch, waited over a half hour to get our food. Maybe dinner when I have nothing else to do that night but sit and wait.

Manetta's have gone there several times, never disappointed.

Now, what else is around that hounds would say is a must. No fast food places please. Like to sit and enjoy lunch with coworkers and don't want to waste my time or money going to yucky places. Thanks
