Harvard Sq Brunch?

Beat Hotel in Harvard Square has a live music brunch:

I have had (very good) dinners there, but I haven;t tried their brunch. It is a bit pricey.

Saffron Infused Gin - where can I buy it?

Thanks for your replies. The Old Raj looks great, but for a mixed drink I'm thinking of going slightly lower end. I've decided to infuse my own gin - the saffron threads arrived today.

Saffron Infused Gin - where can I buy it?

Yes, that's the brand I've seen online. I've checked around a bit, but no luck so far.

This is my starting point:

Pittsfield - any update on the openings of the new restaurants?

I think Dakota is turning into a Japanese Steakhouse (unless I dreamed that, but I think I read it somewhere).

Saffron Infused Gin - where can I buy it?

Now that Rendezvous in Cambridge is closing, I'm determined to learn how to make their Nehru cocktail. I know i could infuse the gin with saffron myself, but there are pre-infused gins out there, and I am lazy. Anyone know where I could buy it anywhere in the Commonwealth?

Gabriel Boudier Saffron Gin

I had the cocktail that this recipe is based on last night (Nehru at Rendezvous) and it is amazing.

Quality gnocchi in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens

I would like to enjoy a plate of homemade gnocchi for dinner (possibly al ragu', but I'm flexible). I like nice, fluffy light gnocchi as opposed to the heavy/dense variety. Any suggestions?
