  1. Dean, I think is too late to call Dino tonight, so i'll pay you tomorrow. I'm confirming for December 4.
  2. I am in shock, too. Here's to you, Mrs. B. In your honor, I am having a glass or two of Beckmen Vineyards' 2008 Grenache. It's comfort food, indeed. Waitman, I haven't seen you in many years, and you may have no idea who I am, but you and Mrs. B. blew me away with your you-ness many years ago. You made me believe in love (again). I am so sorry for your loss.
  3. Thank you Chef Power, Pete and the entire Corduroy team for making my brother's birthday dinner so special. Imagine our surprise when: (1) we were told that the pork belly-- my brother's favorite--was available (even though it was not on the menu), (2) my mother was presented with apple tart tatin for dessert (it was perfect, by the way) for dessert, even though she thought she was skipping dessert in a futile attempt to "counting calories" after the holidays, and (2) you recommended a wine that paired perfectly with pork belly, pork cheeks, scallops, and antelope. Wow. I generally prefer the casual atmosphere of the bar and the always-interesting conversations with Pichan, but tonight was a very special occasion, and Corduroy's dining room was the perfect place for us to celebrate it. Thank you. Pichan, we're sorry we missed you!
  4. I stopped by today to say hi to Bruce. I bought a standing rib roast (it's beautiful!) and country bacon. Thanksgiving, here I come.
  5. I agree -- you can never have too many sweet potatoes. I am making a sweet potato casserole, a sweet potato pie, and, possibly, a sweet potato-lentil stew. Thanksgiving comes but once a year.
  6. My friends are throwing their mother a 60th birthday party in Naples, and want to have the event catered at their parents' home. They are looking for someone who can handle food, set up (ambiance), clean up, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  7. To Sue, who was so full of light and joy she could barely keep her feet on the ground. Cancer, to put it mildly, I do not like you. Go away.
  8. To Beerman, who died 3 years ago yesterday and was born 43 years ago today. Thanks for the good times, the laughs, the love, and so many memories.
  9. I've got a hangover. A Bon Chon Chicken hangover. Oh. My. Gosh. I had the spicy and soy yesterday (I prefer the spicy) courtesy of two members of this board, and now I want to drive to Annandale to buy some, maybe enough to last me the week, except my stomach surely will explode before then based on the amount of chicken I ate yesterday. Yes, I know that is a long sentence, but you can't blame me. I'm not in my right mind. The Bon Chon has taken over.
  10. In no particular order: Radius Vace Ledo Pete's (I haven't tried American Flatbread, but it's on my list.)
  11. Hi Shaggy, There are many restaurant recommendations in the dr.com "Caribbean All-Inclusive Resort" thread. I posted some of the recs (even though I haven't stayed at an all-inclusive resort), and believe that you will find plenty to do (eat), hear (several local bands) and enjoy (white-sand beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving) in Anguilla. I'm not a fan of vacationing in St. Martin. For me, there's just too much going on. I've been to Anguilla five times, and believe it is paradise, especially for people who love to eat and to relax. There is a vibrant culture beyond the resorts (whatever you do, do not spend you entire trip at a resort), and people are warm and welcoming. I check the Anguilla Forum (link, above) and Trip Advisor before every trip to obtain the latest restaurant information. I'll check the recs I listed in the dr.com thread (in 2007 or 2008, I think) and update them. You're going to have an amazing trip!
  12. They should have gotten a shout out for their multi-grain bread, too. Omg. It is amazingly delicious. I have been eating toast for breakfast, lunch and dinner since Sunday. I need to step away from the multigrain. Wow.
