Wonderful ideas! Been to Hakkasan in London-quite tasty indeed! Brooklyn would be taxi most likely or walking across the bridge. CHeers!

Thank you, Sam! Well, thinking Baked might have to take a rain check. Let's hope I can score a table at Minetta :)

Kathryn, Thanks for the recommendations, LOVE doughnut Plant. Looks like the Breslin is a Must and seems to be winning hands down. Just feel like the "old school" steak houses - been there and done that kind of feeling. I'll check out the menu for Resto, forgot about them.

Thank you! I have not heard of American Cut and would say that's quite a plus since it is Chef Marc Forgione.

A 10 day visit in April....have your say :)

Visiting NYC (2 people total) for 10 days and staying at two hotels which are:
Eventi Hotel 851 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10001
Langham Hotel -400 5th Ave, New York, NY 10018
We love to walk but nothing is out of the question as far as location.
This will be our 4th-5th visit to NYC-we love the city so much but I do have a few questions:
1. What modern steakhouse would you eat at? (Keen's and Peter Luger's looks a little too old school)
2. Looking for a great place for Peking Duck.... which does not call for a minimum of 4 diners
3. Which April Bloomfield restaurant would you dine at??
4. We have been to Brooklyn twice now but feel we are not hitting the right spot.... is there a area we can go to which has shops and restaurants all together that spans a few blocks? Totally want to visit BAKED Bakery but as I have read it's not really in such a foot traffic area....
5. Looking for breakfast recommendations near our hotel
6. Any cool breweries/ bars near hotel?

Of course any other dining recommendations would be lovely near our hotels.
Really hoping to eat at The Dutch, Parm, Minetta Tavern, Eataly's rooftop Beer patio, Ippudo, Maialino, Tuck Shop and Yakitori Totto
Many Thanks, indeed!!

Glasgow in May

Christine Teigen Show on Cooking Channel

Did anyone get though the first episode? My husband and I watched it for about 6 minutes and couldn't take it anymore. The immaturity of the show was staggering embarrassing. Christine Teigen is a beautiful young woman who clearly wants to get across her lavish, ultra cool hip lifestyle but the profanity and constant sexual innuendos diminishes the show completely.

Tickets Restaurant- worth the wait?

Yes, indeed!!! I had dinner there last night and it was awesome! The whole dining exp, not just the food. Ferran was nice enough to pose for a picture as well. What a way to spend the first night in the city. ;)

Top Chef All Stars Reunion Show

After I watch these reunion shows I always think afterwards "Boy, I could have skipped that" The best part was watching Elmo and Cookie monster behind the scenes. Is it only me who thinks that Andy dude doing the interviewing is annoying as hell? Isn't he the pres. of Bravo or something... shocking!! Hey Andy , give Dale his check!! I was SOO glad to see Elia gone the first episode- what a crybaby! Grass, corn feed-gotta make your customers happy -whatever goes-to each his own.

English Menu offered to you when dining...

PBSF,
Thank you very much for your thoughts, all of your posts have been very informative in helping my husband and I plan our first visit to Barcelona & San Se.

English Menu offered to you when dining...

I always thought when dining abroad when you are given an English Menu that restaurant must not be worth their salt. When I was in Rome in 2007 my husband and I were seated in a back room and given a single pink piece of paper with a very limited menu in English...I almost walked out. I didn't and the meal was alright, nothing special that's for sure.
What do you think??
We are going to be visiting Barcelona for a week in May and I love to study up on all the food terms and words so I can read the regular menu in all it's glory. I am a little nervous about reading a Catalonia menu- Spanish food words don't seem the same (maybe it's just me) I wonder just how many restaurants have their regular menu translated in English since Barcelona and Madrid are now major foodie destinations.
Thanks!

A weekend in Cleveland

I was just at Melt at their newer location-service was good but the food was ok, both grilled cheese were not close to being crispy or the cheese melty. I had a great dinner at Momocho on Fulton. Lucky's cafe is a great spot in Tremont, we also enjoyed The Greenhouse Tavern downtown-fantastic duck fat frites!

Michael Symon - overhyped/overexposed?

Have you tried "B Spot" burger in Woodmere, Ohio? Really, really great burgers and the sides are just as delicious.
A few years ago we ran into Mike Symon in an elevator in downtown Minneapolis while doing a James Beard dinner, really nice down to earth guy.

A recent review of Zingerman's, Ann Arbor MI

Love Zingerman's especially their coffeecakes,scones and quiches. Haven't tried the roadhouse doughnuts but they are supposed to be one of the best. A few years back we tried the whole empire road trip too, the roadhouse JUST opened and I was very curious why the fried chix entree cost $20.00. I got back home wrote them a letter and about three nights later we had the owner Ari call our house to explain the questions in my letter. Sometimes when I go to Hills Market in Columbus they will gave Zingerman's coffee cakes and candy bars. West Point Market in Akron also carries some of their products.

Jamie Oliver's "Food revolution" on ABC. Watch it if you are concerned about the obesity epidemic.

LOVE Jamie Oliver, takes a lot of guts to do what he does and he leaves his wife and young daughters for months at a time to help and get the word out to eat better so we all can live happier, healthier lives.
The people who believe "he wants to TELL us what to eat and what to do" are not getting the point, he just wants adults to help children make informed healthy choices and know there are other options out there besides chicken fingers and bagel bites.
GO Jamie!!!

Visiting Cleveland, which restaurants I should not miss ?

Lucky's Cafe in the Tremont area for sure! It's a great farm to table restaurant with fantastic food and a small dessert case to die for!
Greenhouse Tavern was named best restaurant by Bon App. magazine and the chef there is a James Beard nominee this year, they have wonderful duck fat fries.
Mike Symon's new burger joint in Woodmere, ohio is cool as well, 16 tap beers and burgers I'd drive two hours for because they are that good...."The B Spot"

Thai food in Columbus, OH

One of our favorites is "Nida's Thai on High" it's in the Short North district-they close for lunch at 2pm and re-open around 5 pm.
Other options are "Chi Thai" on the north side, "Thai Orchid" in the Dublin area-try the newer location -NOT the one on Sawmill rd & there is more of a Chinese Asian restaurant called "Hunan Lion" that is very good with Thai dishes on the menu on Bethel Rd.

No Reservations: Hudson Valley

I thought the show was horrible, really a shame too. The scenery was nice, they treated the CIA as a joke. Perhaps 2 smart remarks from the girl would have been "cute" but that was WAY too redundant, pathetic really.
They really made me believe that the Hudson Valley didn't have much to offer. I will say the food that Bourdain and Murray ate did look quite tasty and the Chef's backyard feast would have been a real treat.
