    I made the fifteen-minute journey from Terminal E to Terminal C in hopes of getting pasta at Yelp's highest-rated airport restaurant, Aldo Something-or-Other Trattoria, but when I arrived, I found that they only sold pizza and cold sandwiches, no pasta. So I went next door to Philly Steak & Gyro. I ordered a pizza steak with fried onions, and, affected by the extremely confused and nervous-seeming cashiers, I became a little nervous myself - that my order would be wrong or bad when I received it. But I had no reason to fear! The steak was delicious, chopped small (the way a cheesesteak should be), with provolone cheese, pizza sauce, and finely chopped and well-sautéed onions, on a very soft roll! I'm going to take the second half of my steak on the plane so I can make the other passengers jealous. Steaks on a plane!

    I've had Restaurant Week dinner at Smokin' Betty's, and it was ok. They're food is very...specific. With artsy, sometimes strange, preparations. But the fried green tomato appetizer was fantastic. Whenever I order out from Smokin' Betty's for lunch, I always order the fish tacos. They are better than fish tacos anywhere else. So fresh and plentiful (3 tacos for about $14), with sweet mango slaw and crema. No cheese or anything else that does not belong on a fish taco.

    This place is pretty cool. I had a delicious burger with goat cheese and a fried green tomato on top. The warm brownie dessert was also very good and very large! I wish they had had more cocktails included in Happy Hour. (I ordered a Malibu Baybreeze because I assumed that that was a "well drink," but I guess not, as it cost $7.) But I guess this is more of a beer joint.

    This restaurant is great. The atmosphere is dark and classy, but not so dark you can't see your menu, and not stuffy at all. The bartender and waiter were both friendly and helpful. My lamb shank was huge, and the bulgar wheat that came with it was flavored with something sweet and addictive, maybe butterscotch?? What a delicious meal. My drink was strong but tasty, and my pecan pie/pumpkin ice cream dessert was the perfect size to satisfy but not stuff me. The ice cream was topped with bacon, which was a first for me, but which lent an interesting flavor to the dessert as a whole. I would love to eat at this restaurant again.

    Local 215 redeemed themselves today by coming to our office for Fooda. I got the chicken-duck-pork belly-bacon-bean-veggie conglomeration, and it is fantastic. Hearty and delicious!

    I've been here twice for parties so I've only ever had the buffet. The cat rescue that I volunteer with always has their annual banquet at Franklin's. The party buffet includes pasta, meatballs, chicken parm, salad, bread, and eggplant. The food is just ok, and I don't like the eggplant at all, but I do like the atmosphere in this place. They also have a nice beer selection, including Guinness!

    This place has a soothing atmosphere with dark and quiet rooms. The masseuse applied a perfect amount of pressure for what I asked for (medium), and she was nice and concerned about my migraines. My mom loved her facial! I liked the experience at Hand and Stone so much that I bought a membership.

    I ordered from Moldova by using the website eat24. Eat24 couldn't get through to the restaurant on the phone to confirm my order, so they cancelled the order and refunded my payment. However, an hour later the food showed up at my door! I guess the restaurant had been having phone problems, but they prepared and delivered my order anyway. It was quite a surprise, but a welcome one, as the food was very good. My boyfriend and I each had the grilled salmon platter which includes two small tasty fillets, grilled eggplant and zucchini (so good), and roasted red pepper. We also ordered a borscht (which I haven't eaten yet) and a bunch of stuffed grape leaves, and the restaurant threw in a platter of fried potatoes and mushrooms for free because of the confusion when I ordered. The potatoes and grape leaves are both awesome. The Moldovan food from this restaurant is similar to other Central European cuisines, such as Uzbeki food. Yum!

    The ambience in this restaurant is non-existent. And the wait for breakfast was atrocious (more than half an hour). But the food was delicious! Check out the photo of my beautiful towering juevos rancheros. A couple of my coworkers had the churro apple pie waffles and they both loved them. I have to admit, though, that my one coworker's apples had to be brought out separately from the rest of his meal because they still were not ready after forty minutes. If you find yourself in the Swiftwater area, there are not many choices of restaurants, so if you have time to kill, you can try this place for a tasty, if lengthy, dining experience.

    The tacos I had today ($10 for 3) were very good. Traditional corn tortillas with slightly pickled red onions, jalapeños, carrots, pork or chicken, and other tasty flavors. I think these "gourmet" food trucks charge too much, but the food was satisfying and fresh.
