I would also like to dine somewhere where we could have a glass of wine before we get seated. I was interested in trying mythos, but I am thinking we will be arriving too late.

Also s green eggs and ham only open seasonally? I just really want to get the green eggs and ham...

Thanks for your help
Green Eggs and Ham seems to be open much more regularly lately.

There are lots of places for special dinners. Emeril's is great. Bice and Mama Della's at PBH also have wonderful reviews.

Quite a few of us peeps will be there that week for HHNs!

As for a special anniversary dinner, I would suggest the above mentioned Emeril's restaurant at Citywalk, or Emeril's Tchoup Chop at RPR. Be sure to make a reservation at opentable.com. Both restaurants also have a full bar area, so you can purchase a glass of wine before being seated.

Another option is The Latin Quarter. I haven't dined inside, but when we were there a couple years ago, we dined outside. The weather was perfect, with a comfortable temperature and a star-filled night sky. It was a very serene atmosphere. The food was also good and everyone enjoyed their meal.

I was just curious. Looked at the Three Broomstick menu and and saw the price of a regular fish and chips

Since that's a little on the exspensive side, I wanted to get the kids size instead. But I have no idea if they'll let me order that since I'm much older than 9.

Any idea if they will? Thanks.

I don't think you should have a problem. They have no idea if you are ordering for yourself, child or grandchild
