Eggplant parm and.....

How about zucchini ribbons to simulate pasta?

What is this utensil? Pics included.

I think it's a corn scraper to remove the kernels from an ear of corn.

what happens to over marinated fish?

Probably mushy,as the citrus will 'cook' the fish,like ceviche.

Top loading bun for lobster roll

I'm pretty sure I've seen King's Hawaiian ""hotdog" rolls somewhere but I think you have to split them yourself?
As a transplanted Eastcoaster,I too miss those top split rolls.

Cheap/Bent Restaurant Flatware

Ditto...drives me batty also!! Can't stand the thin,cheap flatware with crooked tines on the forks,stains on the knives and spoons that clearly had been chewed in the garbage disposal!
When you're paying good money for your meal you surely want nicer flatwear with some 'heft' to it....and clean & shiny.
Not too much to ask.....just sayin!

What Goes Well with a Chicken Pot Pie?

We actually like it with a dollop of sour cream on top.

Use for macadamia crumbs?

The fancy-schmantzy restaurants here in Seattle use them on "Macadamia crusted Halibut" and charge an arm and a leg.
I've made at home for much less.....enjoy!
