    I'd add Farley Girls. In one of your threads I commented that we were looking for another restaurant similar to Sunflower and Mosquito in quality and vibe... Well, we found it in Farley Girls. Reliably good food, friendly servers and management, crisp upbeat atmosphere -- obviously put together by someone who knows their stuff. Plentiful free parking and great hours, too.

    IMO, both Olympia Grill locations top some of the selections on Zagat's list.

    ShyKatz would make my list if they had more healthy choices and longer hours. I would have chosen Gumbo Diner on Seawall over Gumbo Bar downtown. Not sure why Number 13 made the list after only a few weeks of operation, but it has sky-high potential -- to match its prices.

    I wonder of Streeter"s (the lovely little club that used to be on that site before the Mosquito Café) was on the Zagat list; anyone remember?

    That's where I learned how to roach race...
