Food Rumors in the Merrimack Valley

Treb, the staff at Borelli's told me a couple of weeks ago that the Tuscan Kitchen thing was a rumor. They're staying.

Lawrence-Andover-North Andover Eats

I went to Borellli's yesterday and asked about these closing/take-over rumors and was assured both are false.

Lunch in Portland in late May

There were four feet belonging to two people staying at the Portland Harbor Hotel.
Although judging from the mess we may not have been able to stand upright at the end of the night. I think we hit about 7-8 bars/restos from 2pm to Last Call.

+1 for the Blue Rooster. Last time I was up there we woke up with their Nacho Tots all over the place. It took us a while to figure out what happened then we found the bag and apparently we got their porchetta and steak bomb sammich. From the looks of things in the morning it was Good.

Which pan to use for perfect roasted chicken?

I use a wire rack over a sheet pan.

Japanese Single Malts

Of the few I tried I must say that they are finely crafted but at $35-$250 a pour, I'm not a true fan.

Gingerbread Construction Co.-- anybody been?

Absolutely. Carrot Cake muffins and the seasonal (still banana creme iirc) are Very Good.

Beer and Burger, Meat Market, Joe's Stone Crab, and a couple of other places on Lincoln that didn't Impress. The rest have faded into my memory.

Thanks for the great response though!

Thank you!

We're also considering Mandolin, YardBird, Barceloneta, Macchialina, Bulla and Blue Collar. Any thoughts on those?

We're also looking for one Special Occasion place and think Mandolin might be it.

Hello all!
We'll be in South Beach the week of St. Patrick's Day and we're looking for where the good stuff is lately. Last time we were big fans of Michael's Genuine Food and Dink and Pub Belly's. We hit a lot of other places but these two stood out for us. So, what's currently good in the area along those lines? We'll also be looking for craft cocktail/tiki bars in the vein of the Broken Shaker.
Thank you in advance,
-Steve

Is Kashmir in Salem, N.H., any good?

They're decent but their sister restaurant in Newburyport (Jewel in the Crown) is far better food and service wise.

Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon

Got a bottle a few weeks back. Straight I want it on pancakes, with a few cubes and a little time it's surprisingly not awful.

LiquidCourage - Flasks

I used to but now I do not. I'd now rather jock a pint and be done with it once it's empty rather than have to carry the empty flask. If my companion(s) are female and have large-ish bags then I might be tempted to break out the flask but then I'd have to remember to collect it from them when we part or hunt them down at a later date. No, all set with flasking it.

To anchovy or NOT to

Neapolitan pizza isn't always anchovy.

Best roast duck chinatown

I usually split it, cut out the back bone press it flat and toss it under the broiler. I hack it up with a cleaver then it's devoured by my drunken friends at 3am.

I always leave ChinaTown with a roast duck, or two, from Hong Kong Eatery.

Need Sunday Lunch in Salem, NH

That would be a baby back rib with bone retraction making it look like a chicken drumstick IIRC.

And it's about 200 yards from the Salem border.

I think it's the same Family that runs Jewel In The Crown in Newburyport which I find far superior.

Salem, NH - Methuen, MA Food News

Went for Drinks two weeks ago. They have a few Mezcals which I had them do a margarita, Excellent. No sour mix in the house!

Menu looked decent but as they were only open a few days we're waiting for them to shake things out.
