For domestic (esp if you are flying at a non-business-y time) have also found domestic first can be cheaper than coach+extra leg room.

My better half tried lunch at Lefkes, the new Greek place in the American Cut space. She reports back the space is beautiful and bright The $23 3 course lunch is an excellent deal, and the half portion of seafood orzo I ate the next day for lunch was a good sign.

Yes, souhaut is like that, somehow. The St Jo Cessieux is similarly great.

What's interesting about this wine is that it manages to be funky and smooth at the same time.


I wonder how.

Similar to The Wing coworking spaces in NYC and other places. I know they were sued and are(were?) being investigated by NYC human Rights commission but not sure if anything came of it.

My kids love the gigante beans we get from the local Greek takeout place so I tried to recreate them. Didn't have any large beans left, so I cooked some santa Maria beans (RG naturally) in a pot with aromatics until they were chewable but not done. Sauteed some onion garlic and tomato paste in the IP, added some slice cherry tomatoes and oregano, most of the beans and broth and some extra water. 15 minutes on high then reduced it down, finished with red wine vinegar and lots of olive oil. Came out great and perfect texture on the beans. Next time maybe some diced tomatoes instead to make it a bit brighter Interestingly the beans I left to cook separately (always good to have some plain beans sitting around) had some trouble getting to a good texture even after another 1.5 hours of cooking.
