  1. Here is a photo of he last meal I had at Mama's Fish House:
  2. In Maui I have had several excellent meals at Mama’s Fish House in Kuau Cove. Not only is the food good, but views around the restaurant are beautiful.
  3. That’s it. The beignets were very, very good. The caramel sauce did not appeal to me, but the other added a nice taste to them.
  4. They are beignets. The sauces were "salted caramel" and "bailey's crème anglaise."
  5. I’m sorry about this. That was at L'Auberge Chez Francois, as was guessed. I thought I had posted a “yes” to that guess, but I don’t see it.
  6. On a recent trip to Charleston, in addition to breakfast at the Vicious Biscuit, I had a wonderful meal at a restaurant I had never heard of, the Coda del Pesce. The restaurant in not actually in Charleston, but on the Isle of Palms, about a half hour drive from the city. It was well worth the drive. There is a nice view of the ocean from most of the tables in the restaurant. They began by serving us some Italian bread with an olive oil and basil dip. For the first course we shared the “Local Flounder ‘Braciole.’” It was delicious. For my second course I had “Heritage Bone In Pork Chop.” (In spite of this description in the menu there was no bone in the serving I received.) It was excellent. They have a good selection of wines to go with the meals—mostly Italian, as one would expect. We had a bottle of J. Hofstätter 2016 Gewürztraminer which was very nice. I was with a group of three and all of us were extremely happy with our meal. If you are in the Charleston area, and have time to drive to the Isle of Palms, you should not miss having a meal at the Coda del Pesce.
  7. I ate at the Viscious Biscuit on my recent trip to Charleston and thought it very nice. A nice variety of biscuits, plus sides like sausages, and eggs, and so on. Warning: when we left after our meal there was a crowd of about 20 people waiting to get in. I suggest you go early, like right as it opens.
  8. I like the onion soup at Chez Francois. I had a bowl there on New Year's Eve and it was very, very good.
  9. Thanks for all of the suggestions. We decided to try Mon Ami Gabi. We had never eaten there before. We had a very nice brunch.
  10. My wife and I were visiting the South Carolina Lowcountry last week and ate at a restaurant in the Frogmore area, The Foolish Frog, which is on St. Helena Island. Here is a photo of the outside of the restaurant: We ate on the terrace. Here is the view from our table: They have a variety of seafood dishes, smoked ribs, steaks, sandwiches, and, of course, hush puppies. The food was very, vey good. I don’t know how many Rockwell members will ever visit Frogmore, but if you do you should seriously consider the Foolish Frog for one of your meals.
  11. They will arrive on a Saturday, and the plane is due at 10:30. Our assumption is that they will be ready to leave the airport by 11:30.
