re: Galatoires Spin Off- Friday Lunch Line Waiting - BlackenedOut
How big is your party? 9 is probably sufficient for a party of 2-6. I think, and this is just my opinion, its easier to just go around 1 or 1:30 and get in on the second seating. Have a few drinks upstairs while waiting. 9 or 11 am is awfully early...

re: best uptown NOLA restaurant - BlackenedOut
I am pretty sure you will get a great Old Fashioned at any of those spots. And probably not the best criteria to decide on where to eat. Gautreau's is undergoing a chef change. Since it has been consistent for so many years (and produced 3 F&W Best New Chefs - a remarkable feat) I doubtit has de...

re: Recommend Me a Wine Cooler - BlackenedOut
Thats a good point. Store mine in a backroom/mudroom off the kitchen. Most people have a spare closet or garage/shed to park it. Probably a better use than crafting supplies or shoes you wont wear ever again. ...

re: best uptown NOLA restaurant - BlackenedOut
Not sure you can go wrong with any of those choices. Depends on personal taste and what you like to eat. I think Coquette is probably the most modern of the four, but still rooted in classical French techniques and southern ingredients. LPG and Lilette are sort of reimagined and reorganized French b...

re: Recommend Me a Wine Cooler - BlackenedOut
About 8 years ago, I bought of Craigslist essentially a fancy dorm fridge. I have been storing wine in it since then with no problems. It has a temperature gauge on the inside and the warmest it gets is mid 50s. Holds 30 bottles paid about $50 for it. Can also buy a mini-fridge and mount a tempe...

re: Recommend Me a Wine Cooler - BlackenedOut
Yep. That's probably the perfect temp all around. Ever seen the cellars which have an independent cellar inside of it to keep super old wines from changing at all (think they keep them somewhere right above freezing)? Since this isnt the OT, I doubt anyone needs that level of sophistication. ...

re: Recommend Me a Wine Cooler - BlackenedOut
Dont take this the wrong way, but... No one really needs a dual zone wine cooler. The difference is so minimal and keeping your reds at a colder temp or whites at a slightly higher temp, if you arent aging long term just isnt really worth it. Of course its better to probably err on the side of co...

re: Questions about TSA Pre-Check - BlackenedOut
Pre Check gets you expedited access through security checkpoints at US airports. Global entry, includes Pre Check, and gets you expedited access through customs. Global entry costs about $15 more than pre check, so worth it to some. ...

re: Rome, Amalfi Coast, French wine region honeymoon - BlackenedOut
Reims a great city. Historic cathedral, close proximity to WWI battlefields if that interests you. Most of the big houses have a presence in Reims. Tattinger tour is pretty awesome. Caves were originally dug by the Romans. Get a guide and have them take you on a tour to some Grower houses. ETA C...

re: Rome, Amalfi Coast, French wine region honeymoon - BlackenedOut
If you like bold reds and you are going to Provence, I would just hang around the Rhone valley for a few days. Go up to Orange, check out Chateauneuf du Pape for a day, drink some great reds and different whites for a day or two, then zip up to Reims and taste Champagne. ...

re: Turkey and the Wolf semifinalist for James Beard Best New Restaurant - BlackenedOut
Ive never waited more than say 3 minutes to put my order in and another 10 or so to start getting food. They have an efficient operation. I love the place and it almost feels like a breath of fresh air as opposed to so many new places which open on the national stage. Places where they are droni...
