Re: question #2

I've often found that an intractable translation often succumbs to turning
the idea around.  In this case, I'd turn the sentence inside out:

   "The place I am at (is the most something)."

[Of course, this still has a "restaurant where we ate" problem, but we can
rephrase it as "my location (is the most something)."]

So we get {DaqwIj 'IH law' Hoch 'IH puS}, which was one of the phrases
already suggested.
