50th Birthday Dinner - Funky and Reasonable

If you want really excellent food and great service in a funky atmosphere we just dined at Fatta Cuckoo on Clinton street. Chris, the chef, has a creative take on comfort foods that combines great ingredients with his own twists. We had terrific short ribs, excellent mussels and a meat loaf like no other. This off beat little restaurant is a great find if you want an off beat New York experience.

Seville, Cordoba or Granada Markets

We'll be touring through Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada in April and I am having trouble finding the local markets to visit while there. Does anyone know where they are and if they are open every day? Thanks...

Open air markets in Bermuda?

Thank you!

Open air markets in Bermuda?

Hello Athena:

We're headed to Bermuda today. Is the Farmers Market open Saturday or is it closed until November? Thanks for your help.

Great Calzone? North Scottsdale or Phoenix?

I'm looking to take a friend for the best Calzone in North Scottsdale or North Phoenix .. A New York calzone fan needs a bit of home on the plate. The place must be low key and wheelchair friendly.. Any ideas? Thanks

Arthur Avenue Experience — Huge Disappointment

Just in case you decide to try a restaurant without looking for a show too try around the corner, Antonio's Trattoria (Belmont Ave.) It is right near Roberto and is a great, low key, red sauce, brick oven pizza restaurant with a variety of pastas etc. We have been there several times and taken some critical Manhattanites who have loved every minute. Let Joseph make you a cocktail, relax, enjoy and MANGIA!

Great Grilling and Barbecue Cookbooks

It is impossible to imagine that you would do a top 10 Grilling Books and leave off the undisputed #1, Cris Schlesinger and John Willoughby's "The Thrill of the Grill".
