I need to thank Nancy for inspiring this blog. One of my favorite apps is OpenTable. I love just clicking on the app and making dinner reservations in a matter of seconds. I will rarely, if ever, go out to dinner on a Saturday night to a restaurant that does not accept my OpenTable reservation. I have also, successfully used OpenTable when traveling to various cities to make meal reservations.   And, as much as I depend on OpenTable, I know that I don’t truly understand i...

Food hacks are all the rage. To me, a food hack is a new or different way to prepare or serve food. Recently, while on the Weight Watchers app, I watched a video of a celebrity chef demonstrate a truly different way to prepare caramelized onions. I had to try it.   Essentially, the recipe involved taking a whole, unpeeled onion and giving it a light coating of olive oil and salt. You then wrap the onion in tin foil and put it in the oven at 350 degrees. The chef said you...

  As I have written, Costco has opened in my town. We find ourselves shopping more and more in Costco for our everyday items. And my shopping habits are beginning to change. For instance, I love making roasted chicken. I rarely now, if ever, cook chicken because I cannot buy a raw chicken anywhere cheaper than I can purchase one of Costco’s rotisserie chickens. And my family loves their rotisserie chickens.     A few months ago, I purchased a box of Starbucks Pikes Peak k...

  I have often written about the effect baseless online reviews have had on me and my colleagues. This week it happened to friends of mine, in a particularly vicious way, and it made me extremely angry.     There is a Facebook page called Tri-State Restaurant Club. It can be very informative at times. But, I have also found that people can be very vicious on the site. They tend to write reviews with little or no regard for the effect it might have on a small business.  ...

  At a recent Gotham Long Island Dinner meeting, Nancy asked the following question, “What is your favorite thing to do on Long Island in the summer?” My response needed no thought since it is something my husband and I do every summer, “We search for the perfect lobster roll.”     My answer sparked such a lively conversation that I knew it would make a good subject for a blog. One of my favorite places to order a lobster roll was The Lobster Roll in Riverhead. But they cha...

  Today, as we honor our fallen heroes, we also mark the first weekend of the summer. To me, the summer is all about bar-b-que. And when you think about bar-b-que, most people think about hamburgers and hot dogs.     Hamburgers seem to be having a resurgence in popularity. There are specialty hamburgers restaurants popping up everywhere, i.e. Shake Shack, Burger Fi, Five Guys etc. And the toppings people are enjoying on hamburgers have become just as noteworthy as the burge...

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is almost upon us. And for the first time in several years, I am hosting.   While for most people on Thanksgiving the turkey is the “star” of the show, I am all about the side dishes. I love filling my plate with a taste of every side dish and just a smidgen of turkey. Given that I am hosting, my plan is to have an assortment of sides to appease me. :)     So I am reaching out to you Gotham. Other than stuffing (which my husband makes the be...

I happened to turn onto a rerun of “Cheers” the other evening.  It caused me to think about whether I have a place where “everybody knows your name.” And I realized that my husband and I do. We have a favorite small restaurant that we often go to where they know us by name, have excellent and bountiful Italian food,  and will often make sure they have a table available for us. Villa Maria in East Rockaway is our “joint.”     Most Friday evenings, you can find my husband and I...

In reading People Magazine this week, I was amused to read about an unusual  food combination enjoyed by  a celebrity. He loves to mix peanut butter into his scrambled eggs. My first reaction was, ”yuck.” But then I recalled an unusual food combination I enjoyed while in high school and decided I shouldn’t judge another’s food  mash-up. Senior year in high school, I got out of school so early that I often had lunch at home. My preferred lunch was lox and cream cheese on a ba...

The first placed I lived on my own was  Brooklyn Heights. Since the  law firm where I was working was also in the Heights many of us who worked together also lived close to one another.   When those of us who lived in the Heights wanted a special place to go to dinner our “go-to” restaurant was Henry’s End. It was a small cozy restaurant with a wonderful chef and diverse menu. I can recall many  wonderful evenings spent at Henry’s End enjoying good food and good friends.   Fa...
