favorite fish dish

Now you are talking !!! Grouper throats,for me, (Black or Yellow Edge Grouper) are very tasty, most folks only want the filets when they come back from a Gulf day trip, most people don't know how to deal with the large bones; for me there is nothing better than a nice wine thinned red sauce with a few good sized throats placed in the sauce for about the last 8-10 minutes of simmering, throw in a few brown Gulf Shrimp if available serve over pasta....

Neapolitan pizza.

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:43:38 GMT

There seems to be a proliferation of Neapolitan style pizzerias with their high temperature,wood or coal burning ovens in the North Jersey area. All seem to do their thing a little different and it"s a good thing as we have more choices. The old standby is A Mano in Ridgewood..Go there all the time and their pizzas are reliably good and over all a good value.But their other food selection is meager. Just read a review in the Bergen Record regarding S.Egidio around the corner from A Mano.They seem to place more emphasis on regular food,but can't wait to try their pizza. The other one I like to mention is Coney Island pizza in Riverdale. Some interesting pizzas on their menu. And Anthony's pizza with their multiple locations and coal oven cooked ribs. Any preferences out there?

Recipes from NY Times

I wouldn't do it. The dipping sauce really shines from the floral quality of scotch bonnets, and the heavy garlic in the sriracha would ruin it for me.

Chateaubriand for two?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:41:16 GMT

Chicago Cut Steakhouse has a double-cut chateaubriand for $108. Paris Club has chateaubriand for one, $34.95. On the northwest side, Sabatino's has chateaubriand for two, $58. David Burke's has a "south side" bone-in filet, $64.

First Date Food?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:45:36 GMT

I haven't been on a first date in quite a while. The last one involved getting First Date Drunk on beers at a dingy pub (still a worthwhile Date Night). I'm also not into the idea of games or tests. That said, finding out someone is a picky eater would be a huge entry in the Con list, so I don't think I can't completely say that the choice of venue/ordering wouldn't matter.

Epoisses in the Witness Protection Program...

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:53:35 GMT

I have a hunch it's the ziplock that led to so much gas coming off it--ie, trapping the gas. What I would do, if it smelled more powerful than usual is have a tiny taste. If it's off, it won't kill you. If it isn't off, it is heavenly. What is interesting is that Whole Foods will not even sell it to you, if it is one day past the sell by date. According to Delucacheesemonger, it would be at its best at that point. And, I believe him.

Dinner near Faneuil Hall

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:45:01 GMT

It's definitely overpriced, and is part of a large national chain. That said, you're right on the booths. I really enjoy that feature. Service is always adequate. And again, the veggie burger is terrific. You could do much worse in that neighborhood.

Cucina Basilico

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:47:08 GMT

I just had lunch there as well -- y6y6y6 and I must have been there at the same time. I had the fetucinni marinara. The sauce was very tasty homestyle Italian, with just the right amount of everything and a nice texture. The pasta, on then other hand, disappointed a little. It didn't taste homemade and was a little overcooked. I guess my expectations might have been to high. The warm, very fresh bread was delightful when it was first brought out. Will return and try different pastas.

Give me your Best Baked Pasta Recipes (Please)

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:47:21 GMT

Chicken Tetrazzini is a favorite in our house. There are a ton of recipes out there depending on what you like in your pasta. I like mine colorful, so I add diced red & green peppers, peas and mushrooms in this. I usually make a large batch and then freeze half. It freezes well. Then you can thaw and bake. If you want my specific recipe, please let me know.

"We don't take reservations for less than 6." Restaurant Owners Listen Up! [moved from Seattle board]

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:48:58 GMT

And my comment was in response to "It astounds me that many posters really don't understand "The Golden Rule." We get it, you like reservations. Those who don't mind not making them aren't doing it wrong.

What turns you off about restaurant restrooms?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:48:50 GMT

1) People who don't flush after doing a Number 2. That's just vile and your mother would be ashamed of you. I can deal with unflushed Number 1, but 2 is a no go. 2) Counter around the sink area is pooled with water and there isn't a dry place to put your bag while you wash your hands. BONUS: there are long hairs immersed in the puddles - you know who you are, Ms. Hair Brusher. If you splash water while washing, please, wipe it up with a bunch of TP or a paper towel! Don't leave it a wet mess for the next person.

I get the option to decline the two trial, but then again, I first registered many years ago.

Pizza: Where has the bad pizza gone?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:53:03 GMT

Filling up the ovens at Domino's, Little C's, Papa J'sm Chucky Cheese etc. The cure for those wondering what it's all about - a week in Italy. NY no longer a sure thing - so many phonies there it is no joke. "Grew up in Da Bronx 1950's"

Wonder how many day's worth of salt content are in this beast?

Good Sushi in the Twin Cities

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:44:52 GMT

All the Tuna is frozen. The Salmon comes in on ice. The "Snapper" is Tilapia. Nobody in Minneapolis knows how to make the rice. All the soy sauce is generic off the shelf. Nobody pickles their ginger. Sushi here sucks. I know what you mean, I'm from the Valley in CA. Even 20+ years ago was light years ahead of Minneapolis.

Any NC State Fair Reports?

The deep-fried barbecue is not like the Pig in a Pup at King's, which is just a barbecue sandwich with two halves of an enormous hushpuppy for the bun. The deep-fried barbecue is like a corn dog with barbecue inside of it instead of a hot dog.

Help; I need a restaurant for a special occasion

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:43:43 GMT

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:52:25 GMT

LOL. Our menu: roast turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes (Aunt Louise's recipe), cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, rolls w/butter, apple pie, pumpkin pie.:-)

Nunzios Kitchen ~ Sayreville

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:41:35 GMT Has anyone been here? I went last week and was very pleased with the pizza! he place on the inside looks like it should be in the village. Very trendy, fun décor! We only had the pizza because it was late and my daughter wanted just pizza and to go home. Their menu looks interesting. The place was packed on a Thursday night with take out and all the tables were taken in the dinning room. People were raving about the food. Will definitely go back!

Potholes in the Vancouver Dining Scene and a Thumbs Up to the Folks of La Buca/Pied de Terre

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:44:18 GMT

It's just not that big a place and there's only so many people with the disposable to support the kind of scene you're postulating.

Crock Pot Chicken?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:45:50 GMT

I'd just be careful not to let the white meat chicken go too long in the slow cooker so it doesn't get really dry.
