  1. Our first trip to Venice and thanks to Dean Gold, a very tasty one. Restaurants we particularly enjoyed in no real order: Al Mascaron - a true bacaro. Our first taste of genuine Sarde and Saor Trattoria da Fiore - San Marco - Spaghetti with pomodoro and huge prawns Rosa Salva - The best pastry in Venice Da Alvise - on the Fondamenta Nove - great Caprese, risotto with pesce accompanied by a 2002 Tamellini Soave that was wonderful. Da Pinto - a huge collection of wines with a wonderful restaurant wrapped around it. Thanks to Dean, we had a great meal and couple of complimentary glasses of l
  2. Marco Island; Naples Mrs. M and I will be traveling to Marco Island, Florida soon and are planning to enjoy one special meal. In past visits, my experience with dining in the Marco Island/Naples area has not been great. Indeed, the only exception to this is when we stumble upon real dives -- these have been, thus far, the culinary high (and this is certainly relative) points of our trips. So, I thought I'd throw it out to this esteemed bunch: does anyone have any dining recommendations in the Marco Island/Naples area? Say $75 to $125 a head? Thus far, I've come up with one contender that s
  3. In the Italian Renaissance section of the National Gallery (West Building), you can see works by Panini and Carpaccio. Last weekend, I stumbled across this "Madonna and Child" (c1505-1510) by Vittore Carpaccio and laughed out loud when I saw it. Click on it, and zoom in on the flying cherubs - they look like something straight out of the 20th century, and they are *hilarious*.
  4. You have two weeks left to see this one-room exhibit containing several works by Doménikos Theotokí³poulos, better known as "El Greco." My advice is to spend as much time looking at the 11 paintings (7 by Theotokí³poulos) as you can tolerate, and then go downstairs to the Lecture Hall (near the furniture exhibit), and watch the looping, thirty-minute film about the life of El Greco. Or, for a slightly different experience, do the two in reverse, but either way, seeing the film is a must. This great painter, a relative unknown compared to Velazquez, has had an extraordinary influence on Mod
  5. Dear all, Leaving for 12 days in Italy tomorrow -- 4 in Rome, 4 in Tuscany, and 4 in Venice. We are all set in Rome, as I have several Roman friends who have set us up with restaurants owned by their friends. On the drive from Rome to Tuscany we will probably stop in Orvieto for lunch -- suggestions in Orvieto welcome! In Tuscany we are staying near Asciano and will day trip to places like Siena, Chianti, etc. Last time I went, Dean Gold gave me great recommendations for places like Il Conte Matto in Trequanda, but I am wondering if there are new suggestions for good places to have a larg
