large shrimp and grilling

Have fresh shrimp today from NC coast.
To peel or not to peel before grilling. That is the question.

Best Dinner for One Night in Downtown ATL

Sounds like a good night for Rathbun Steak.
Also consider Gunshow or Kimball House.
(none of these are in downtown fyi)

Lunch near aquarium...perhaps Ted's Montana Grill.
Or drive to The General Muir.

Kinston and Emerald Isle/Morehead City/Beaufort

Just spent a few days in Eastern North Carolina. Stopped by The Boiler Room and The Chef and the Farmer to and from, and it was fun. The Boiler Room was great (as advertised) for beer, oysters, and burgers. My oysters were fantastic and we also enjoyed the butter bean burger and the shrimp burger. Dinner at The Chef and the Farmer was delicious, and it was fun talking to Chef Vivian.

Best meal at the beach was by far at City Kitchen in Beaufort. It's a beautiful spot and the food was great. Friendly service, and the chef even came out when my daughter requested the recipe for the caesar salad dressing.
On Emerald Isle the Village Market was a hit for lunch. Great soups and sandwiches.
I was pleased with Capt. Willis Seafood for fresh shrimp, and the day I went I bought Triggerfish, which had been caught that morning. Delicious. Friendly staff.

Went to El's drive-in in Morehead City for the shrimp burger. Not life changing but good. The hushpuppies were really really good.

Restaurants Near ATL

The Pecan and The Feed Store are very close to the airport in College Park.
If you can add 5-10 minutes to your 10 min drive request, you can be in Midtown with many great options. Empire State South and Ecco to name a couple.

Buckhead with kids

Thanks everyone. Yes, I love Krog Market....was there in January on my last visit. Also had a fun dinner at BoccaLuppo.
Believe me, Buckhead is not my first choice but required this time for whom we are meeting, rush hour, where we are going after.
I miss the food scene!

Augusta, GA or nearby

Buckhead with kids

Agreed. I want to go to Seven Lamps. But not with my kids. I'll go another time.
I like the look of Don Antonio's. Thanks for the suggestion.

Buckhead with kids

I've been away from the city for three years now but will be back with the kids next week for dinner (Monday night). Need to head north on 400 after dinner, so we are thinking Buckhead for location.
We had never been to Varasano's, so we're thinking maybe that.
Any other options for dinner with kids (12, 9, 7). Pizza and pasta yes, but what else is new and interesting? Brew pubs, burgers perhaps.
Seven Lamps?

Raleigh NC - Lunch near Cameron Village?

Will be in Raleigh for lunch next week with family.
Looking for a local (not chain) spot.
Have heard about Cameron Village and St. Mary's/Hillsborough area.
Any new info on that?
Where's the best lunch? Salads, burgers, beer, cocktails?

best restaurants for solo traveler?

Empire State South is great for solo dining! And if the weather is nice you can sit outside. And you can walk from the W.

iconic spots for newcomers

Friends are traveling to NYC in March and have never been.
They asked me for iconic Manhattan restaurants, whether it's pizza or high end.
I'm sure there are some links to previous posts.
Any thoughts or links?
Thanks.

chicken pieces in slow cooker

Great idea, but no time today and no ingredients. Hence the slow cooker plan.

chicken pieces in slow cooker

I have 2 split breasts and 4 drumsticks (one of the TJs organic packs).
Can all of this go in the slow cooker, despite the white and dark meat mix?
If so, any suggestions for the slow cooker? I have some thai curry sauce which might work well.
Thanks.

Meyer lemons

We have two meyer lemons that we grew with our own small plant.
They are sooo cute.
Anyway, what's the best way to use the juice, zest, etc. to feature the lemon?

Pepper oil on hands

I sliced some green banana peppers tonight that were hotter than I expected.
I've washed my hands numerous times but there is still hot oil remnants.
I just tried taking out my contacts. Ouch!
Any suggestions?
