re: Is it me or have flights gotten really expensive? - rsb831
Agree. MLU-CHO has seen a big jump over the last two years. Check out Richmond. Sometimes the difference is enough to justify the one hour drive. Also, US Air out of Jackson used to beat Delta out of Monroe by a good bit, but not anymore....

re: NYC Itinerary (mostly set...help needed) - rsb831
Good list, a lot of ground to cover. Minetta Tavern is my favorite place in the city. Just feels like NYC to me. Difficult reservation to get at decent times, but it can be done. They also have a great brunch. My wife would say to swap Gramercy Tavern for Gotham Bar & Grill for lunch. It i...

Few points from a parent whose child is at one of the top schools mentioned. If your daughter tests well, your mailbox will be filled with letters and expensive, glossy direct mail from colleges. Some will be the big names, others you will have never heard of. These are great to learn about the s...

re: One Dinner in D.C. - rsb831
Komi is a much different experience than the other two. It only serves a set tasting menu. Jaleo and Zaytinya are great, but more casual and less expensive. If it was a bigger group, I'd say either of those. Since it is just the two of you, I'd go to Komi. It is worth it....

re: Need help selecting stove and oven for my new house - rsb831
Sounds great. I know you will enjoy it. I remember seeing your plans a while back. Planning and thinking through how you will use the kitchen is half the battle. Subcontractors are the other. Don't think they understand what you want even if they are nodding. Be there as much as possible and have...

[quote]I like the sound of that! I have read others using a steam oven end up using it most of the time after they try it. I was torn between the steam oven built in the range or the wall version. Went with the range so I can have 2 full sized ovens as well...if one has to be a big warming drawer. ...

re: Need help selecting stove and oven for my new house - rsb831
We just finished our kitchen renovation. We went with the Thermador package as well. The Pro-grand steam range is incredible. Have only cooked on it for 2 weeks now, but did a 15 pound turkey in the convection/steam oven and it was amazing. Skin was golden crispy and the white meat was moist and ...

re: Fancy pants dinner suggestion in NYC - rsb831
I was also underwhelmed. Summer of 2010. The positive was that everything was perfectly cooked. The negative was that it was bland. I understand their focus is "farm to table" and that using the freshest,finest ingredients means you don't want to mask flavors with heavy seasonings or sauces. Ho...

Another interesting out of the way place for Italian in the city is Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. It is called the "real Little Italy."
