Craving Lobster or Dungeness Crab? Head over to the New England Lobster Market & Eatery located in Burlingame, California, near San Francisco International airport – they fly fresh Maine Lobsters in daily. Dining al fresco at this casual-style New England eatery is reminiscent of a wonderful lunch we enjoyed at Freeport on the South Shore of Long Island – the only thing missing is a water view, but the food more than makes up for it.
Duke’s is a “must-see” if you’re in Malibu – the restaurant, bar, and outdoor deck area feature over 300 feet of picture windows, overlooking the Pacific Ocean You sure can’t beat the views (watch short video below of speedboat riding the waves) – and the food is pretty terrific too!
We’re always on a quest to find that perfect hamburger. And our latest favorite place doesn’t disappoint. Not only are these 1/2-lb fresh, all-natural gourmet Angus Beef burgers grilled to juicy perfection, they come served with all the trimmings on a deliciously light gourmet sesame seed (or whole wheat bun, pictured above) delivered fresh daily by Le Boulanger). And wait until you taste their “can’t-have-just-one” Sweet Potato Fries – they’re killer!
The Encounter really lives up to its name. If you’re looking for a fun place to eat or drink in LAX that is unique, has great views and delicious food – and is within easy walking distance from your gate, you may want to check out The Encounter Restaurant & Bar. It’s especially fun if you’re into UFOs, aliens and sci-fi (we’re both big “Trekkie” and “Star Wars” fans) – you’re gonna love this intergalactic-themed restaurant.
Finally… a Cheesecake Factory in San Mateo! The restaurant’s Grand Opening was on Monday, September 19, 2011 at Hillsdale Shopping Center (across from Trader Joe’s and Old Navy) and what an opening it was – you wouldn’t believe the crowds!
We’ve enjoyed many a fine meal at some of their other locations (there are over 150 of ’em), including San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Florida and New York – let’s see if this new San Mateo location takes off – we’re sure it will!
We arrived for an early dinner and the restaurant was already packed – and buzzing. Luckily, we didn’t have too long a wait; but by the time we left, there were big crowds forming both inside and out. Once seated, we waited for about 15 minutes before anyone came over to our table. We made good use of our time – the menu is extensive and with so many great offerings, it took us a while to decide what we wanted to eat. Be sure to check out the Cheesecake Factory’s “Calorie Counter” nutrition booklet – it lists every item on the menu along with info on calories, saturated fat, sodium, etc. Then again… why spoil your meal 🙂
When we’re in the mood for a taste of the Caribbean, we head over to Coconuts in downtown Palo Alto. Dining there and listening to reggae music makes us feel like we’re back in the Caribbean again!
