Fwiw, we had lunch at the fish market, a dinner in Manly and another at a Chinese place near the QVB.

Here you go, best Indian restaurant in Europe...


I have ate in this Indian restaurant a great many times, it's certainly decent enough after a night on the piss, but unless it's improved significantly in recent years, it's not in the top tier of Indian restaurants in the local area. There are several much better in terms of grub, decor and surroundings.

My youngest brother just moved to DC. I've actually never been. Any recommendations for what to do there? Any places off the touristy path? Also, anything he should do as a local?

Great city to visit, you've got all the landmarks at the National Mall i.e. Lincoln Memorial, WWII and Vietnam Memorials, etc.

The Air & Space Museum, the National Gallery of Art where you'll see some of these, from my last visit in November 2019:

And loads more. I stay at the Hamilton when I go there, it's alright, a brisk walk to the mall. Good breakfast if you like steak and eggs:

I have to remember the name of this really great seafood joint where you can still always get a reservation if you are white. I didn't get it at first when they said on the phone to just come down and check at the door.

I was in Atlanta a few months ago. I’m hoping that Coke-CNN City is not the same as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Actually bought that book in America when it came out and read it on the way back.

I didn’t have much time to sightsee, but Savannah was pretty. Lots of great food and street drinking is a thing there, like New Orleans. I found Forrest Gump’s bench and a few locations from the Midnight book.
