Restaurant R'evolution--eating at the bar?

I ate lunch at the bar 2 days ago - gumbo, a retro spaghetti and fried oyster dish w a butter sauce, and a few glasses of wine. There was plenty of room, the bartender was lovely, and the food was great.

Freezable, take-to-New-Hampshireable Brooklyn pizza?

OK, here is a heretic reply: actually, the pizza in the New Haven area is even better than Brooklyn's, and many of the great places there are aware of the fact that people travel to eat their pizza and then want to bring it to friends elsewhere in New England,..... so they do their own frozen pizzas and breads, which, since they have better freezers, are better than what you can do. My personal preferenece: Zuppardi's in West Haven. There's a whole freezeer of yummy stuff just as you walk in. An easy on and off of I-95.

Seersucker - two words: pickled okra

If it's anywhere near as good as Scott Peacock's not-so-traditional-but-damn-good place in Decatur, I will be very, very happy.

Considering hiring a BBQ chef for a small backyard party. Advice?

Every now and then an easy question:

Steve Harkavy is a friend. Full disclosure, I sometimes compete with Fuhgeddaboutit. That said, I think Bon Soir would be perfect for your needs.

Brattleboro vt- breakfast,brunch, or lunch- Sun

The Royal would be an excellent choice. It is right off the highway and has slightly more adventurous offereings than a standard diner.

Downtown Atlantic with a baby?

Definitely, yes. Curt, et al are very welcoming of families.

Who Stayed In and What Did You Make For NYE?

Leg of lamb with a sort of Asian glaze/sauce (basically cranberry marmalade, onions, ginger, sesame oil, chili paste, soy sauce, garlic, rice vinegar); roast potatoes, garlic and peppers; and a salad of melon, radish, red onion, lime juice, and habanero. Wine: an Australian shiraz. Some chocolate for dessert.
