Bouley, New York

This is NOT a souffle.

Once I had secured the reservation at Le Bernardin, I went to work to insure that we would eat well for the rest of the week, too. One of my most anticipated meals was the $55, five course lunch at Bouley. The short version is this: food generally awesome, service . . . → Read More: Bouley, New York

Wine Dinners: Tribeca Grill and Maloney and Porcelli

The wine lineup at Tribeca Grill

While most dinners for us tend to include wine, they can’t all be called “wine dinners“. Of course, once we planned this New York trip, we started contacting the winos – er, wine lovers – that we know there to connect for dinner. Monday night brought us to Tribeca . . . → Read More: Wine Dinners: Tribeca Grill and Maloney and Porcelli

Le Bernardin, New York

Was dinner at Le Bernardin the best meal I ever had? Quite possibly. It started as a birthday gift. We were sending my in-laws to Le Bernardin for dinner while they were on a trip to New York. It then occurred to me that we had to be in New York the following week for . . . → Read More: Le Bernardin, New York

New York, New York

I remember standing on the balcony of my very first apartment in New York waving to the tourists on the double-decker bus. We had no furniture yet, so our 400 square feet seemed rather spacious, and the balcony? Well two people could stand out there, but I won’t say it was comfortable.

Square One, Key West

Gnudi. Fun to say and fun to eat.

When my friend Donna suggested Square One for dinner the other night, I was a little hesitant. Naturally I said yes, because any time someone else comes up with a plan (so I don’t have to), it is a good thing. Plus, she has good taste.

Cayo Mexican Cantina, Key West

Peri-Peri chicken is absolutely the star of the show here.

The food truck scene in Key West has recently gained some steam, despite city efforts to make things more difficult. The city loves coming up with new regulations, and often can’t decide who should have to abide by these new rules. Shockingly, they haven’t driven . . . → Read More: Cayo Mexican Cantina, Key West

One Fur All: Great Product and a Giveaway

This is not the face of a smelly dog.

My dogs don’t smell. Well, they do on occasion, and when that happens they get bathed. (It is, of course, in their best interest to smell good all the time as both Babka and Latke hate the bath.) So, when I first heard of the . . . → Read More: One Fur All: Great Product and a Giveaway

Diamond in the Dark: Blind Tasting the Wines of Francis Ford Coppola

Thats me, on the right, with my friend Marcie, awaiting the blind tasting.

Last week, I had the privilege of attending a truly wonderful event: a blind wine tasting. I have done many wine tastings before, some blind (not knowing what the wines are, as they are in bags or otherwise covered), some not, . . . → Read More: Diamond in the Dark: Blind Tasting the Wines of Francis Ford Coppola

La Montanara, Aventura, FL

Delicious antipasti plate.

Recently, my mom told me of an Italian place they had been a few times, and suggested we go with them and check it out. When I heard the whole wine list is half price on Wednesdays, it was easy to pick a day to go. La Montanara, in Aventura, is . . . → Read More: La Montanara, Aventura, FL
