weekend in philadelphia

I am driving to Philadelphia from NYC on Friday April 22. it will be Easter Weekend. I made reservations at Amis on Saturday night. But have also heard Matyson, Bibou and Fork might be good options.
I am looking for good lunch and breakfast spots, mostly...Also, any good but not too expensive dinner and lunch spots.
Any good, comfort-food type breakfast spots? Pancakes, eggs, etc
How's Village Whiskey? Or any gastropub-type spots?

How to make Chicago-style crust

Interesting. Well, I am going to try it out tomorrow. I will let you all know how it goes. I am assuming that the flour doesn't matter. One would not necessarily want to use bread flour since that seems to be better for Neopolitan style

How to make Chicago-style crust

that would be so great. i don't have a subscription and it seems their recipes are behind a paywall

How to make Chicago-style crust

both of these are great suggestions! thanks! the recipes in the pizzamaking.com link seem to use more oil and a combo of vegetable and olive oil which makes sense. But Cook's Illustrated does a lot of work on testing out things..so i will try to find that recipe, if i can. thanks

How to make Chicago-style crust

I have been trying to perfect a Chicago style stuffed pizza. But I am unsure what it is that makes the crust so buttery and dense yet somehow sweet. It's not a regular pizza dough recipe. I have tried using butter but that does not seem to be the key, either.
Anyone know?

where to go for a special birthday meal

I am looking for recommendations for a special birthday dinner. The dinner is not until December, so I have time, but I realize some places may take that much time to get into.

I am considering the following:

Le Berdadin
11 Madison Park
Del Posto
Per Se
Marea
Locanda Verde

I am looking for a place that is romantic, quiet, great service, great food and interesting selections. I am not all that worried about price. Willing to pay as little or as much as needed for a nice meal. Also, any other suggestions than those above would be helpful. willing to look outside the borough of Manhattan, also.

what's the best thai in greenpoint or williamsburg

so, I have lived in Williamsburg for about 13 years now and still don't know which thai place to order from. I usually resort to Chai Thai. But they are not all that great...I used to rely on Amarin...does anyone know if that is still good?

any other ideas? suggestions?

mostly, this is for delivery, btw...i am holed up with a bad knee.

thanks

Arlington, Manchester, Bennington Vermont Area Recommendations

I am going to be in Arlington, Vermont next weekend and I am looking for some good restaurant recommendations. I prefer something not too pricey. What would be ideal would be a great old tavern with good food.
I have looked up some--Anyone been to Ye Olde Tavern?

Also, I am worried some of those "taverns" are overpriced and bank on tourists like me coming up for a snowy weekend to experience some old New England charm.

I have been to Blue Benn diner in Bennington and like that for breakfast.

Anything else for dinner--fireplaces would be great, too

Scottsdale, Phoenix, Jerome, Sedona, Flagstaff

wow--"coca-cola glazed kurobuta ham "steak" served with cornbread pudding, apple-fennel chutney ($18)." sounds amazing. thanks!

for mexican food in the scottsdale/phoenix area--is the barrio cafe considered one of the better choices? most authentic?

I am curious about fry bread house and navajo tacos, too. sounds great.

any other uniquely phoenix or arizona-kind of places?

thanks for your help

Scottsdale, Phoenix, Jerome, Sedona, Flagstaff

I am coming to Arizona this Wednesday. I will be in North Scottsdale Wed-Friday and then we are driving up to Flagstaff for Saturday and Sunday.
I am looking for some good food finds in Scottsdale and Phoenix for Wed. through Friday. What's your favorite breakfast spot? Best Mexican? Best only in Phoenix kind of place?
I have spent a lot of time in Scottsdale since my father moved there 30 years ago. But his idea of going out to eat included Rawhide and Pinnacle Peak's etc.
I live in New York City and love to have adventurous food experiences.

For Saturday and Sunday--we plan to take a scenic drive to Flagstaff with stops in Jerome and Sedona. Any suggestions for those places, also, would be awesome!

Thanks

Creamy Ricotta

This is so great! I have made a few batches of ricotta over the last few months. I have tried this recipe here--which uses lemon as the curdling agent---http://tastingtable.com/recipe/Tastin...

and I have also used another that was buttermilk--here--http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/...

and while both results were delicious and so fresh, they turned out a bit too dry.
next time i will try not draining them in the cheesecloth for so long. I also wondered if i may have left the heat on too long. can that also make the results a bit drier and heavier?

i want a creamy ricotta, too!

Soft Shell Crabs

they are a bit salty at ny noodletown---but i think that's part of the method...i like them there but i want to find some really fresh sauteed soft shells to try out...i am suspicious of the freshness at noodletown sometimes.

spotted pig does not have them tonight, by the way...but i have heard EU serves them...anyone had those?

Has anyone been to Momofuku for late night dinner? do they still have items late night that they don't serve during earlier hours?
Any other off-time special items anyone can think of?
I know about the Peter Luger burger only served at lunch. Any others?
