Never say "best", but a coupla years ago, I reveled in a fourteen course birthday dinner made and delivered to our table by a great local chef. Coupled with enough booze to make Nick & Nora nap, it was a hellova meal. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/599263
My current drink of choice:
Sweet vermouth, rocks with a twist. It always makes me think of Rome. The way the sun hits the buildings in the afternoon.
I really wish I could:
Figure out a way to fax food.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
My favorite comfort food:
Hard pretzels with cheap, yellow mustard and a rocks glass brimming with gold rum.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
La Cote Basque (NYC), Gatsby's (Richmond), Le Bec-Fin (Philadelphia), Wild Mushroom (Baltimore), Blue Fox (SF)
