ISO Turkey Meat Loaf in a paper loaf pan near Pine Brook, NJ

I met up with a friend recently at a trade show. He lost his wife back in October to lung cancer. He recounted that since her passing, he has been looking all over his town of Pine Brook, NJ for the turkey meat loaf that his wife used to buy, because it reminds him of her. Where near Pine Brook, NJ can one find turkey meatloaf baked in a paper loaf pan?

Thai Square

I've ordered the green curry at Bangkok Golden and it's authentically flavored and Thai hot! Bangkok Golden is in the strip mall behind Home Depot at Seven Corners.

Review - Domaso Trattoria in Hotel Palomar, Rosslyn

It's been about 10 years since I lived in Arlington, and back then I don't recall Rosslyn being all that hip - so I was taken aback walking into Hotel Palomar, into Domaso restaurant on the 4th floor. The trendy, upscale decor and the mood lighting reminded me of the bar at Hotel Angeleno in LA - except instead of looking out over freeway traffic, there was a fantastic view of Georgetown with its tower and lights across the river.

(Nice bar, by the way. We enjoyed a fruity array of mixed drinks - don't miss the Brava, with a surprising accent of cucumber.)

For starters, I particularly enjoyed the polenta with blue cheese appetizer: the toasted polenta has a nice texture/slight crunch that pairs well with the cheese lava. I tried my best to discreetly lick the plate! The rosemary and cheese breadsticks are not to be missed. Several in my party ordered salads - the rustic bread salad was the hands-down favorite.

Domaso features northern Italian cuisine - though I wasn't impressed with the gnocchi & langoustine pasta dish I ordered - a little bland despite being drowned in butter sauce. A much better choice was the beef tenderloin, which was well-flavored and perfectly cooked.

For dessert I cleansed my palate with a trio of homemade sorbets - the Mio, Tuo, Suo featured Prosecco with peach, raspberry and I think orange flavors. Also stole a bite of the delicate tiramisu...heavenly.
