Best place for fried seafood/fisherman's platter?

Hey 'hounds - What about the Sail Loft? I think that's a good bet there, no? Not talking about the full menu, but fried food. Haven't been in eons, but it used to be solid for a fisherman's platter...

ISO Romanesco Artichokes

I haven't. And while not Boston, I would suggest checking at Russo's in Watertown.

Lamb on the menu-who's got it?

The braised lamb neck at West Bridge is delish. It's one of the larger dishes, meant to share. http://www.westbridgerestaurant.com/a...

Market Basket 4% off

I haven't been to Market Basket. What's the quality of their produce and poultry? Do they sell grains in bulk? Do they sell organic? I know, I just need to make a trip and scope it out. But I'm wondering what makes them great aside from the low prices I'm hearing about? Thanks so much! And I'll report back if/when I get there.

Where should I go for lunch tomorrow?

I'm also looking for a lunch place. Boston or Cambridge preferred. Have had great lunches at West Bridge, Strip Ts, Myers + Chang, Coppa. Looking for something new for lunch - preferably not a sandwich - and glass of wine with a friend midweek. Any suggestions?

Whole fish in Boston?

Recently had the crispy whole fish with green curry at Myers+Chang. It was delicious!

Sustainable Sushi?

Yes and no. I agree about the importance of being an educated consumer, if that matters to you, but there are places that have higher standards for what they are buying and serving. (And it's not just sushi, but that's what I'm after here)

Cocktail party venue in San Fran?

Hey There - I'm from the East Coast. Helping to plan a cocktail party, 35 people, heavy hors d'oeuvres. We'd like to bring in our own chef/caterers, and supply the wine/spirits. Know of any great venues?

Thanks!

Lamb Neck Fillet

Thanks for all the great info. I was on a bit of a time constraint and ended up with lamb steak from Whole Foods which I cut up finely per the recipe. Worked out fine. It was delish! But I'll source the lamb neck fillet for next time - which will be in the near future. Love that cookbook!

p.s. No longer in Rozzie - am a downtown girl now :-)

Lamb Neck Fillet

I'm planning on making hummus kawarma from the Jerusalem cookbook tomorrow. Anyone have a source for lamb neck fillet in the greater Boston/Cambridge area? Savenor's doesn't have it. Nor does Whole Foods - River Street. Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks!

Looking for a spot to watch some of the game on Sunday. Not a sport's bar, please. Downtown preferred, but location isn't that important. Thanks!

Two Huge Bunches of Sage

So much sage in my CSA share this week. I have a ton of recipes that use a tablespoon here, a tablespoon there. I can fry it, make a brown butter sauce, etc. etc. But I'll never use it all up. Should I just dry it, or are there recipes that call for an abundance of sage? Thanks!

Looking for a Quick Early Dinner in JP

Had a good meal at Tres Gatos a few months back - would happily go back.

And, contrary to other posts had an enjoyable early dinner at the bar at Canary Square on Sunday. Started with the tofu/leek dumplings. Didn't care for the sweet/hot dipping sauce, but Sriracha did the trick. Also had the tuna tacos - rare tuna, guac, sour cream. The black bean salad was nothing to write home about - canned black beans, lots of cumin. Overall a quick, satisfying meal, great beer selection, and I just liked the vibe there.

Chez Henri (dining room): A big let down

Yes, Groupon expired yesterday, and the bar was full and waiting - for patrons like me - who were cashing them in. Still, busy restaurant is no excuse for poor service and execution. FWIW, the Cubano at the bar was excellent, really enjoyed the Rhum Cocktail Marilene, and the oysters (Island Creek) were very tasty with a mignonette and tomatillo salsa.
