Whatever happened to Mike Colameco's radio show and podcast?

I am a big fan of Mike Colameco's TV show and radio podcast, I see that it hasn't been updated since Mid- December. Was the radio show canceled?

Wife and I Invited to Per Se by my boss. We are so excited to go, but my wife does not like seafood. Would they accomadate her?

My wife and I were recently invited by my boss and his wife for dinner at Per Se in 2 weeks, as a thank you to me for helping him at the last minute to finish a daunting project

My wife and I are extremely excited to go, but the only thing is my wife hates seafood which is a decent portion of the tasting menu. She would be more than glad to eat any meat and vegetable they put in front of her. Would they make a substitution for her throughout the menu ( she eats most everything else and doesn;t want to end up having to order the vegetable tasting because of her distaste for seafood ? I know people would give their eye teeth to go to Per Se and we are very excited. I don't want to seem bothersome to the restaurant.

Minetta Tavern for wife's 30th Birthday ( good idea or not)? Also, Black Label Burger-- Is It Worth It?

It's my wife's 30th birthday and she has been asking me forever to go to the Minetta Tavern. I have been to Pastis and Balthazar and was very impressed with the food in the past. Is MT as good as the other two? Is the Black Label Burger worth the $26 it costs?

Where can I get Macarons on LI??? I am moving from NYC to Nassau County in a few months

I know macarons are the current craze, but I have been a fan of them for many many years. My wife and I are going to be moving to a home in Nassau County in the end of June after living for many years in New York City. I currently have Bouchon Bakery, Financier, and Epicerie Boulud only steps from my apartment. Where can I get them on LI, I can't seem to find any place? I am going to miss NYC so much, but at least I am only a 20 minute drive away.

Invited to Dinner with my wife at Per Se by boss. Wife is almost 7 months pregnant

I don;t know if this a problem or not. I was recently promoted and as a nice gesture my boss ( who travels 75% of the year) invited my wife and I to dinner at Per Se whith him and his wife. My wife is currently almost 7 months pregnant. When I told her about the invite her ears perked up and was so excited. I have always wanted to go there, and I also am very excited.

Should I call the restaurant about this matter?

Thoughts on A Voce Columbus for a post proposal dinner

I am going to be proposing to my GF next Friday night. I am looking to keep my budget at $250 for dinner including tip. I would have loved to go to Per Se or Jean Georges, but after spending a fortune on a ring and having to buy Christmas gifts for my family, I don't want to drop another $500 on dinner.

I ended up making reservations at A Voce Columbus for an 8:30 seating next Friday night. I read a number of great reviews,and the view of Central Park and I thought it was a great option.

I figured One If By Land or River Cafe is a little too cliche for an engagement dinner. What are your thoughts on A Voce Columbus or any other great options within my budget.
