  1. Miguel, I am very interested in your thoughts about your recent meal at Vivant Table. I have reservations there, but have heard very mixed reviews.
  2. No need to take cover. Your insult is noted, and is one of many in a consistent theme of portraying those outside of the cultural mecca of NYC as a bunch of braying morons. Frankly, I am fucking sick of it.
  3. Going to be in Pittsburgh for work this week, staying in the U. Pitt area. Any good dinner recommendations? I've done Primanti, home of the absurdly huge (and good) sandwich. Looking for something else this time.
  4. not at all. baseball is my preference actually. but you're completely misreading the thread. I'l say again what I've said many times: in most American cities sports (or a sport) is one of the two or three primary threads of civic culture. in NY there are no primary threads, instead there are multitudes. it's really a very simple point. That's not what you said. What you said was "NY is sports averse" those are two different things. either way he is wrong. Only in NYC are there more than one or two "primary threads of civic culture" beyond sports? Come on. That's just of

    I have found it to be very watery.
  7. No brainer. Bone it, cube it, and make blanquette de veau.
  8. Depends on what you are seeking. Lyon is quaint with good, if typical and traditional cuisine, (that's a positive in my book) and most places have really solid wine lists. Marseilles is probably not what you are expecting. It is a rather gritty, industrial, working, port city. Lots of grafitti, buildings in need of repair, and a fair amount of petty street crime. I don't think it is dangerous, but it is not Aix or Nice by any stretch.
  9. This is absurd and patently false, but I am not surprised you are ignorant of the fact that many, many cities and towns have lots of establishments that are bars first and foremost and not restaurants.
  10. hey, Popeye's is the bomb for fast food chicken, but no doubt it doesn't stack up to homemade.
  11. Probably only the mystics and mediums. And who knows, maybe they do.
  12. AND you didn't have to clean the stove! I agree, Popeye's is pretty good for a quick fried-chicken fix. Popeye's chicken is really good, and so are the red beans and rice.
  13. Next you are going to tell us that Outback Steakhouse does not really serve the cuisine of Australia. I wonder how many people go to Texas Roadhouse for the first time expecting to see Patrick Swayzee working as a bouncer.
  14. Looks good Daniel. Is the honey on the fried chicken a northern thing? I've never seen it on fried chicken down around these parts.
