Fresh Pasta Recipes?

I've made a couple including Batalli (3.5 cups AP and 4 eggs) and Keller's (14 egg yolks, one whole egg, 2.25 cups of 00 flour, .25 tsp olive oil and .25 tsp water). I documented the Keller recipe here (www.whatweeattogether.blogspot.com). I don't think the I think the pasta dough made with AP is a little tougher, but not radically so. I tend to make Batalli's more often (but with 00 if I have it in the house).

3 Dinners in Tokyo: Sushi Kanesaka, 7 chome Kyoboshi and Keyakizaka

The Concierge at the Park Hyatt suggested we pass on 7 chome and Keyakizaka and try Ukaitei Omotesando, Seryna Shinjuku - Mon Cher Ton Ton section or Omae Xex instead.

3 Dinners in Tokyo: Sushi Kanesaka, 7 chome Kyoboshi and Keyakizaka

Is this a good plan? Does anyone have other recommendations? We are finding getting a grasp on where to eat in Tokyo harder than any other place that we have been. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!!

Keyakizaka Teppanyaki @ Grand Hyatt Roppongi - Perceptor's Report

Great pics. Keyakizaka is on our list for a trip we are making to Tokyo in two weeks, along with Sushi Kanesaka and 7 chome Kyoboshi. The concierge at the Park Hyatt (where we will be staying) are trying to direct us in a different direction. Would you agree? Any suggestions?

4 days in Tokyo -Some real Current Insight

I cook sous vide at home, have a smoker out back for when th BBQ craving hits, we have tasted the food at Alinea, Daniel, Spotted Pig, Ma Peche, French Laundry, El Bulli, Etxebarri, Sin Huat, Ursawa, Go's Mart, Providence, El Pigeon, The China Club, etc.. In other words we have eaten at the best restaurants in the world. These are by no means our favorites, but just mentioned to put forth the level of how serious we are about food tourism. Our desire for the next great meal has brought around the US, Europe and parts of the far east (China and Vietnam). Tokyo is the next stop and we would love to know where to eat. We want to know what tasting menu to splurge on, where to grab an unreal snack, lunch, or meal in a department store. the Cowhound Army has never steered wrong, would love to know the current themes in Tokyo.

Honeymoon In Tokyo

We will be stopping in Tokyo (on the way to Thailand) for four days as part of our honeymoon. We are looking for some recommendations, and could think of no better place to look than here. We will be staying at the Park Hyatt and would like to get a good taste (couldn't resist) of the Tokyo food scene. We hope this will include some unreal sushi, some premium beef, ramen, yakitori and other can't missses. Where would you eat if you were in Tokyo for 4 days?

Bachelor Party in Nashville

A bunch of guys are meeting in Nashville to celebrate a buddy's pending nuptials. People will be coming from NYC and LA. any suggestions out there in chowland? Food that can't be missed (BBQ?, Prince's?), bars that must be stopped at (New Yazoo? great bourbon bar?) and great hotel recs would be greatly appreciated. Money is not really an issue, but would like to get a good taste of the the food and the city. What is the best neighborhood to stay in? Need the full run down, but food is of the utmost importance!!!!

Steak Dinner for 16

I am looking to have a birthday dinner for a friend. I was thinking 16 of her nearest and dearest at a good steak place (she is quite the carnivore). I was hoping to have some suggestions to private rooms or big tables. I know about Simon LA's glass rooms, the private room at Mastros, and the large table at the Lodge. Are there any others? Maybe Lawry's?

Money is not really a concern.

Ex-NY Hound Returning to NYC for Birthday Dinner

I moved to LA two years ago and have gotten a little out of the NY food loop. Gone are the days when I could rattle off all the movings and shakings in the NYC restaurant community, so alas I look to you all for some culinary advice.

I am going to be returning to town and will be celebrating my birthday. I am looking for suggestions as to where to eat. While money is not really a concern, I am not speaking Per Se or Masa money. Also, sushi is not really an option (I live in LA for god sakes!!). All other cuisines are viable options.

Note that Peter Lugers and Blue Hill will be consumed earlier in the week.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated
