Need a food processor

We bought a Kitchen Aid to replace our cracked Cuisinart of 30 plus years two years ago and we dislike the Kitchen Aid. The food spills out of it regularly. We are looking for a good excuse to buy another Cuisinart as we regularly use a food processor.

sunday brunch near newton waltham

We had a great brunch at the Rox Cafe in Newton Highlands last week. I had poached eggs over veggie hash with crisp potatoes and excellent whole grain toast. My dining companion had the same over turkey hash. Both dishes were excellent and I would go there again.

Cuzco and Puno updates

I have searched the board for some updates on Peruvian influenced food in Cuzco and Puno and most of the information is 1-3 years old. Any updates? This is day 3 of our trip and the food has been amazing so far. Looking for some great chow.

Russo's organic produce

I was at Russo's last week and noticed on the way out that they now have an organic section with excellent price points that are lower than the competition. The quality looked good, but I haven't tried the produce yet. What are others' experience?

Best pizza in Buffalo

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. We ended up not getting any pizza during our trip to Buffalo, but I will use your suggestions the next time.

Best pizza in Buffalo

This question hasn't been addressed in a few years. Where do you suggest we get our pizza fix when we go to Buffalo next week? In my day, (50 years ago), Bocce Pizza was the best, but I am not sure that it still is.

My husband's family had a tradition of having every male from youngest to oldest sing the kiddush.

December 2013 Openings and Closings

I recently had lunch there and found that the food, cleanliness and service had really deteriorated in the past year. I was expecting Market to close.

Romantic special AMAZING food - Santa Monica

We were there about 6 months ago, and though some of the food was excellent, it was not amazing or memorable in any sense of the word.

Do I Finally Just Give Up on MA Peaches?

We have enjoyed peaches from Volante Farms this year. They have been great. This past week I bought some fabulous plums as well.

Need vegetarian options (at least) around Newton, Dedham, Wellesley

I am not a fan of the Walnut Grill. We have been there twice and did not find any of the dishes memorable. On the other hand, my 30 something children like it better. If you like the Red Lentil, you will probably like the Walnut Grill.

Cold soup for Rosh Hashanah

I often make gazpacho for Rosh Hashana lunch with poached salmon and a potato green bean salad when Rosh Hashanah is in early September.

Shake Shack in Chestnut Hill

We finally went and I have to say that we really had an enjoyable burger, fries and milk shake. It reminded me of the big boy hamburger that I grew up with in Buffalo, NY. I also can say that I found it much better than Five Guys or In and Out Burger. On the other hand, it is not a destination restaurant and I wouldn't wait 45 minutes or more for the food.

Underwhelmed at 51 Lincoln.

51 Lincoln and its sibling Waban Kitchen are our neighborhood restaurants and I have always wanted to love them, but I have never had a fabulous meal there and they are not inexpensive. Other Hounds sing their praises...different strokes..

Boston South End or Copley, pasadika dinner

I don't know of any kosher restaurants in Boston that are open during Pesach, possibly the Milk Street Cafe.

If you are not observant, go to any steak or fish restaurant and order grilled something with plain baked potatoes and a salad with dressing on the side or ask for lemon juice and olive oil.

March 2013 Openings and Closings

There is a new vegetarian/vegan restaurant that just opened in newton highlands at the corner of Walnut and Centre Streets, Walnut Grille.

I also noticed a new restaurant, The Farmhouse, that opened in Needham Centre on March 1. It looks like another farm-to-table restaurant.

Has anyone tried either restaurant?

Any new restaurants near Symphony Hall?

I am a little tired of Symphony Sushi and I thought that some new restaurants might be opening up near Symphony Hall. Any suggestions of new good options?

Johnathans on Needham street

We went there once as it is in the neighborhood, but I would never go back again. There are many better budget choices. How about Sweet Basil?

Thanks for all of the great suggestions. For several reasons, we are going to go with reservations at Dovetail.

Buffalo question

It was too late, but thanks for the feedback. I come back to Buffalo every few months, and I am sure that I would be thinking of this restaurant in the future.
The 80 something year old diners are hard of hearing, too.

Brunch near the Museum of Natural History Sunday

I am meeting a friend (both of us are from out-of-town) at the Museum of Natural History on Sunday and we're looking for a place for brunch in the neighborhood. Any suggestions will be most appreciated.
