Shelf life for Shredded Cheese

I bought some shredded Parmesan and blue cheese at the beginning of December. Are they still good? They were freshly grated at my gourmet food store, so I figure they have less preservatives.

NY Hound coming to home- with BF

thanks for the reply.

Area... not exactly sure, but thinking lincoln park, wicker park, wrigleyville. We are in our mid- upper 20s.

Looking for a hip, fun atmosphere where i can get a sense of where upper 20 year olds who live here would have a celebration or nice meal. NOT anything stuffy. Does that help?

WINE FLIGHTS!

I am in search of a restaurant that offers flights of wine AND has good food!!! Also, it needs to be downtown (i.e. below 34th).

Birthday dinner for 20, reasonably priced

I would highly suggest Aroma winebar... they have a room in the basement that would be perfect. the food is very good and reasonable.

HELP! Need dinner recs for catching up with friend...

Yes, public is the australian place. I really enjoyed by meals at both:

Public i had the kangaroo as an app. and then the grilled shrimp as an entree. Public is more sceny than Landmarc. It is louder (but not overly powering)

Landmarc is more homey and VERY good. i spilt the Filet and tuna steak when i went there. the food was really good (the steak was great.... and i am from chicago so i have had great steak). and the wine is very cheap and you can get craffes and try different types. if you are looking for a place to have great conversation and catchup i would say landmarc.
hope that helps

downtown rec for a group?

I really enjoyed Public when I went. It is a very lively atmosphere and I loved my food when I was there (had the kangaroo app. and the shrimp entree.) I think it is definitely worth a trip

ISO the best Breakfast Burrito

I think nothing beats a breakfast burrito for brunch. Does anyone where I can find a really good one? Downtown locations are preferred!

12 women for bachelorette?

I think freemans would be a blast, especially if you can get the back room.

Also, spice market would definitely be able to accomodate.

Going to craftbar this weekend. Haven't seen any recent reviews of recs... thoughts? also, what is the scene like? I get the sense it is like Lure or Public... am I right

dinner for 3 girls saturday night in the ev or les

try public or barmarche. If you aren't set on the location, lure fishbar is great in Soho. I agree about the atmosphere at schillers... so annoying

Parents meeting in manhattan for the first time - perfect dinner spot?

What about Jane on W. Houston? Great space, not too expensive, really good food. And you will be able to hear each other and have a great conversation!
