Does Luger's still serve the Bavarian Crepe cake????

I can't believe that they took it off the menu either. I was going to make it tonight and looked on their site for inspiration - nada. Thanks for remembering where they came from -- fortunately, Lady M still makes them: http://www.ladymconfections.com/old_h....

Blue Ginger (sushi place) in Chelsea?

Sushi and Chelsea are not a match made in eating heaven but we live here, and we get cravings! Blue Ginger is our regular sushi delivery place. We haven't eaten there so can't vouch but the taste and price are fine for a night in. Friendly, English-speaking people answer the phone and they keep your address linked to your phone number.

Marinating your Bloody Marys.

I love all of these non-traditional twists. Thanks for sherrying.

Slushy Blended Margarita

Kicked off Memorial Day weekend with a pitcher of these. Haven't tasted margs this fresh since Puerto Vallarta. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Lusso

I like to support new restaurants, especially these days. I am curious about Lusso, on W Broadway where Le Streghe used to be. They are open on Sunday at lunchtime now, but I can't tell from their web site whether they're serving brunch food per se. I'm coming up from DC and plan to take a group there in a few weeks. Would love to hear about anyone's experience there so far.

Trader Joes frozen fish fillets, your opinion?

Asian and standard, please. Also I'm not sure how long the sole should cook, it is thin like trout and I wonder if following these recipes that say "bake for 15" will be too much. Thanks!

Trader Joes frozen fish fillets, your opinion?

Kelli, I just brought home a package of TJ's Alaskan "Dover Sole." I need some inspiration on how to prepare - will you share your recipe? Thanks.
