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...

re: NYC Restaurant Reviews (Part 2 of 2) - rsb831
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." Lots of restaurants and delis where they still speak Italian and their English accent sounds similar to the one in da Parish. It is like a a Magazine St. of small...

The only substitute is two years of studio art, dance or music. She's been on the dance line for three years, but that doesn't count. I guess they are trying to get "well rounded" students. At the expense of "intelligent" students....

They dropped the physics requirement for 2013,but added a fine arts survey requirement. And they won't waive it even for a science. My daughter would like to take AP physics but must take this jack off music/art appreciation class instead. Which will hurt her chances if she decides to go the selec...

OK, looking for good cocktails, decent wine list, informed service, and delicious food trumps all. I am thinking Boucherie is the one, but it may be too casual. Not looking to impress anyone, however I would like it feel like a night out, not just eating. Does this give you anything to work wi...
