Best Miele Dishwasher?

My thoughts exactly. I think my Bosch was between $5-600. with delivery and installation @ P.C. Richards.

In Italy there is an intermission in the middle of a film. Hostesses come in and walk around with trays of drinks and snacks to sell.
When you order popcorn they ask: "Salt or sugar?"
No lasagna, or veal Marsala, sorry

Best Miele Dishwasher?

I just put in a new Bosch super quiet model and I love it. Reliability rating is superior to Miele and much less expensive.

Probably liverwurst and onions!!
Doesn't really matter. Bringing your own food to a movie is "forbidden" even though many of us sneak in snacks.
If it is "pungent" to me, regardless of what it is, I would complain. Everyone has their own sensibilities. I don't pay a bundle to be assaulted by food aromas.

Is it okay to ask guests at a suprise party to pay to attend?

Part at a restaurant maybe and only if it was known at the time of the invite.
Party at home, no way. Check a few days before the date of the party. There may be discounted "tickets" on Craigs List or Stub Hub.

Your favorite pub or restaurant . Would you mention to the manager that the restrooms are getting a little dirty ?

In a New York minute!! Bring it to their attention while you are there. It's good to let them know a client cares about clean rest rooms.

The pungent aroma would disturb me enough to complain and let the management deal with it. At today's movie prices I am not very tolerant.
I have had this happen to me on airlines. Some one in a nearby seat unwraps a home made or store bought meal that just reeks to high heaven. Not much can be done unless there are lots of empty seats and I can be moved.

For me, part of a movie date is having a meal before or after the film. I've got my favorite eating spots near each theater.

"Theaters are not cafeterias."
But the mega theaters have become cafeterias with food trays and tray holders at the seats.
I've seen a family of 4 sit down with drinks, nachos, chicken fingers, hot dogs, popcorn and boxes of candy on the trays. WTH??

Red Hook Lobster Pound

The Red Hook location is not really an eat in place. There is a bench outside. It is very good.
For a little bit upscale try Luke's Lobster on 5th Ave in Park Slope is not far away and they have tables. Also very good.
For a full more elegant lobster dinner you might want to try Grand Central Oyster bar in Park Slope just up 5th Ave from Luke's.

HELP! ideas for restaurant for gift certificate

Not for nuthin' but: ( I love saying that) I took my first wife to dinner on our first date. For dessert we ended up at Junior's.
A few month's later I took her to Junior's and proposed over a nice slice of strawberry cheese pie and a mile high sundae. She said yes!!
We had a Junior's strawberry cheese cake for our wedding cake.
The marriage lasted 18 years.
Years, and several wives, later I had a milestone birthday party for 150 of my closest friends. The first wife was at the party. She told our son: "I wouldn't miss it for the world. I want to see what your father has been up to all these years."
For my birthday cake: Two massive Junior's strawberry cheese cakes!!!
When they brought out the cake I mentioned to the ex: "You still like Junior's cheese cake?" If looks could kill.
Some things never change.
The point being: Junior's can be romantic. Especially for dessert.

I need opinions

NYC Bagels and bialys if you can ship overnight. They can freeze them once they get them.

poultry sausage--pork casing

I sort of understand someone only anting a vegetable diet.
Vegans (The Hezbollah of vegetarians) are bizarre I.M.H.O..
I have trouble comprehending excluding red meat and pork but eating poultry.
Please explain why someone would eat poultry but not beef, lamb or pork.

The Hamptons

Since I moved from Wainscott to the North Fork I don't venture East of the canal much. Lots of changes in the last few years.
If you consider Hampton Bays "The Hamptons" you should try:
Canal Café right on the canal for one of the best Lobster Rolls.
Rumba right on the water
Cowfish also on the water

Sausage storage

I get my fresh sausage from a large Italian butcher. I'd say he is about 6'4" and 300#. He has knocked off a few pounds in the last year.
I can't see why the sausage would have gone bad. I don't usually refreeze sausage but refreezing would not make it unhealthy. It may affect the taste.
It is always a good idea to cook the sausage well even if it is fresh.

Something ate all my lettuce...

Birds may be landing in or near the garden but I doubt they are eating the lettuce leaves.

Something ate all my lettuce...

Rabbits, chipmunks or groundhogs in my area. My veggie garden is secured with chicken wire. That keeps out the groundhogs. Chipmunks and rabbits seem to get in anywhere. Fir the first time they ate all of the leaves and buds on my lilies. Go figure?

Cedric's Harlem

Tried Cedric's in Harlem last night. Exceptional!! We finished off the very good warm bread basket. To start we shared tuna tartare on a base of avocado which was excellent. I had the hangar steak and it was cooked perfectly rare. Nice brown sauce on it along with tasty mashed potatoes and some greens. My arm candy du jour had the salmon with was very tasty and also cooked perfectly med-rare with a side of ratatouille.
Dessert of crème brule and apple tart with caramel sauce was amazing.
Fabulous service and nice energetic ambience.
Check it out!!

Fresh Moz, $10/lb> in N.J., Does that sound right?

Much less expensive than buying in a specialty store and it still tastes great when thawed.
Since it's made in Italy it can't be that fresh to begin with.
The fresh Mozzarella at the Italian specialty store is not Buffala but it is made fresh every day. There would be no "point" in freezing that as I buy it and use it the same day.
