Where is the tastiest dim sum these days?

Hi, i'm the original poster on this. I think my use of the word "nice" has caused confusion, what i really meant was "most delicious," didn't mean it as a judgment or "upscale."
Thanks everyone for the excellent tips!!

Good sushi restaurant for 9 year old?

I'm looking for a good Japanese restaurant to bring my sushi-loving 9 year old to as a Christmas break treat. I need someplace high-quality, but not as expensive as Gari or Yamada. Any recommendations?

vacuum sealed jar of foie gras

Hi Everyone, thanks for the help. My husband was finally able to faintly make out that it's good until 2013. We're still eating it tomorrow though :)

vacuum sealed jar of foie gras

we brought a vacuum sealed jar of foie gras home this summer and it's been in the back of fridge. unfortunately the date's been wiped off the jar. i feel like it should last a long time since it's sealed, just want to make sure others agree that it's probably ok to eat still!

foie gras appetizer

Long story, but i have a jar of foie gras from Lyon that should be eaten. Is it too much to serve as an app if i'm making lasagna as a main course? my heart says yes, but i don't want it to go to waste.

Mail-order barbecue?

Hi, i'm thinking of trying to mail-order some good ribs, pulled pork, or brisked for my hubby who's from the south. Does anyone have a recommendation for this? Or is it not worth the price, since NY has so many adequate barbecue restaurants these days.
