This is great- we're actually heading to Telluride tomorrow, staying at The Peaks. I was hoping someone could recommend some good seafood (not sushi) place. As for the rest of the weekend, I'm an adventurous but meat-free eater, with three very meat and potatoes guys. Suggestions that will keep all of us happy?

Help! Cooking with cannellini beans--without being bogged down.

Did not, and this could very well be the problem! I'll give this a shot before I commit to the labor of using fresh beans.

Thanks for all of the tips, though! Super helpful! I love Chow...

Help! Cooking with cannellini beans--without being bogged down.

Recently I've made both a cassoulet and a pasta dish calling for (canned) cannellini beans. I dutifully added them, but despite simmering in garlic, tomatoes, and all sorts of other delicious ingredients, the final result seems bogged down by the beans. The dishes were delicious, but the beans seemed to dull it down a lot every time you got a bite of them. It's such a waste for an amazing dish to just taste like big bites of protein.

Has anyone else had this experience? Have any tips to imbibe the beans themselves with some kind of extra flavor before adding them? I'm at a loss here and don't want to give up on those recipes!

Looking for hybrid-not fusion- restaurants!

Fusion's huge, but I'm trying to find restaurants that instead of combining the two cuisines or flavors in each dish, serve individual dishes side by side. For example, I can get sushi, or I can go with the full-fledged Italian pasta carbonara.

Any ideas?
