Trattoria L'Incontro

Had dinner there Wednesday first time in a couple of years and maybe it was an off night but were disappointed. Service was great but everything was sort of lacking brightness. Perfectly fried calamari rings with no tentacles and bland marinara sauce. My son's swordfish was dry. Wife's veal chop was eh. Good Osso Buco but gnocchi that came with was gummy.

Maine-style red dogs?

Most of the supermarkets in Southern VT & NH have them

Sunday Night Steak in Denver-No Chains please

Will be in Denver in August and looking for a good steak on a Sunday night. Nor interested in chains so Elway's, Shanahan's, Capital Grille etc are out and Butcher Bistro and Guard & Grace closed Sundays. Any suggestions appreciated

Waterfront Alehouse Closing 12/28

Unfortunately, a lot of the regulars, myself included (parenthood will do that) drifted away over the years. I was in two Thursdays ago at Happy Hour around 6:30 and there was one person at bar and two people at a table, waiter told me it had been that way all week. You don't know what you've got till it's gone.

Low-key pub in Brooklyn or Queens with great burgers and beer

Brooklyn Waterfront is less noisy and burger is great with handcut fries as opposed to waffles in Manhattan.

two8two burger is good not great imho

Brooklyn Crab, short review

The problem is they have capapcity for 200 plus seats and a kitchen that can cook for 75 people. Alma is a shitshow and so is this place

Popolo in Bellows Falls -- First impressions

Been there twice for brunch, very tasty and reasonably priced. All locally sourced ingredients, well prepared.

Waterfront Ale House on Atlantic - No Oktoberfest Menu This Year?

Gaid was his name, a reduction in force I'm afraid

Going to NH... duty free or not

Look for one of the specialty stores in one of the larger towns, they'll have a larger selection.

Walpole Creamery

downtown brooklyn lunchtime burger round-up

IMHO, the burger at Downtown Atlantic is overground and lacking in flavor, love the rest of the menu there, except for the pulled pork

Wilson's BBQ (Fairfield, CT) on DDD Tonight

Right, Memphis BBQ Judges are taught that only what your teeth bite into should pull away on a properly smoked rib, fine line between tender and mushy.

woodchips for smoking in Brooklyn/Queens

Yeah I could see a problem with someone doing it on the fire escape or something, which is illegal anyway, but I've been using backyard smokers in Brooklyn for almost ten years.

Pleasant Valley Brewing, Saxton's River, VT?

Nice place, they're not brewing their own beer yet, selections from McNeil's, Long Trail, Harpoon, Switchback, Shipyard and others on tap. Pretty good bottle selections with an emphasis on English and American craft beers. Menu is pretty standard pub grub, good burgers made with local grass fed beefaloe from Townshend. Free popcorn and Wifi, music on weekends. Patrick, the owner used to work for Harpoon.

Slider Buns - Brooklyn

Martins Potato Dinner Rolls are the perfect size and texture or get their hot dog rolls and cut them in half.

Hello, Boerum Hill!

Just an empty storefront with a space available sign. I though they were very inconsistent for takeout and better for eat-in, fwiw.
