re: Food/Bar offerings at new New Orleans Airport announced: Legit as hell - BlackenedOut
Agree. People bitch about msy all the time but it is a destination airport. Airports tend to be worse the more attractive the destination is. So unless the are luring an airline to have a hub, no clue why (although im happy for it) this airport needs amenities of an Atlanta, dallas, or other hub. ...

re: Suggested Spain itinerary - 9 days on the ground - BlackenedOut
Second this sentiment. Such great differences between Northern and Southern Spain, and particularly Barcelona - which considers itself hardly even Spanish. Could definitely fill 9 days flying into Madrid and heading north up to Basque country. Or another direction. ...

re: Dry Brine for Chicken - BlackenedOut
You are on the right path. Few things benefit more from a dry brine than chicken. Especially boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I usually dry brine (just salt a touch more than would normally) about 30 minutes prior to cooking. Big difference. ...

re: Planning go to D.C. around Easter - BlackenedOut
Also, and this is common knowledge to many, all the Smithsonian attractions are free (or at least most of them are). With a family its a good way to kill some hours. ...

re: Planning go to D.C. around Easter - BlackenedOut
On the restaurant front... Le Diplomat is a fantastic French bistro/brasserie spot. Had a really great meal there and place is very lively. Make reservations for dinner. The Partisan was also a nice spot for lunch (think of it like a Butcher/Cochon spot if you are familiar with that). Rose's ...

re: I need ideas for lobster meat - BlackenedOut
If you still have the shells, make a lobster stock and then maybe make some individual lobster pot pies. Make a veloute (butter based roux and lobster stock), fold in the diced lobster meat, some blanched carrots, peas, maybe some chervil or tarragon. Place in those mini pie tins, top with puff ...

re: Things to do in Nashville - NYE - BlackenedOut
I believe Nashville has one of the largest fireworks displays on NYE, iirc. Great eating town. Would recommend Arnold's Country Kitchen for a meat and 3 experience, Otaku Ramen, City House (Italian and Southern merged is best way to describe it, but more Italian focused), Peg Leg Porker (for bbq...

re: Photo journal/review - Southern Spain & Barcelona - BlackenedOut

re: Wine Decanter - BlackenedOut
There a lot of opinions about decanting. Basically decanting helps open up a wine or aerate it. It is used mostly for red wines. You pour the wine in, let it sit there a while (or not - again lots of viewpoints), and then pour into the glass. I have a decanter and in last five years I have used ...

re: Honeymoon in Charleston - BlackenedOut
The Ordinary, Leon's, and Butcher and the Bee should be on your food list. The Ordinary is very simple, but very well done seafood. So if you dont like seafood, dont go there. But if you do, whooo boy. Leon's is this raw oyster, wine, and fried chicken emporium, fun place. Butcher and Bee is a g...

re: Two weeks in Italy. Tell me pros/cons of what I am thinking already... - BlackenedOut
I think 2-3 days in Venice is a perfect time to decamp and relax. Can take a day trip to the surrounding islands one day, explore Venice another, or take a day trip to Verona which has some well preserved roman buildings i.e. Coliseum and the fake Romeo and Juliet balcony, if you are into the Bard. ...
