    Female Lobsters

    That''s what I've done in the past, but for some reason the last few yrs, I've been having a hard time finding them. I also use the roe in the stuffing, with butter, breadcrumbs and tarragon. It's awfully good, that way.
  8. I will be preparing baked stuffed lobsters for Xmas Eve and the recipe calls for female lobsters. The roe of the female lobster is incorporated into the stuffing. Anyone know of a purveyor that would have them in the northern NJ area?

    Smashburger

    Clifton Smashburger opened last week, on Route 3 West, just before the Promenande.
  10. I am meeting a friend for lunch, who is visiting in Glenwood. She is willing to come down as far as Wayne to meet me. Can someone recommend a decent place for lunch..not overly expensive, please.
  11. Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but.. When I go out for dinner at an upscale restaurant, I expect attentive, but not over attentive, service. I don't want my waiter hovering, checking out my every move. Please have some kind of amuse bouche to curb the appetite, while the chef is preparing my appetizer. Good quality, warm, fresh bread is always appreciated. Please list prices on your specials, or have the waiter mention them, if he is reciting them. It's not nice to be shocked when the bill is presented. Please check and replace my utensils, if they were taken away after the previous course. Please teach to serve from the right and clear from the left. I think it's been forgotten in too many places. Please don't take my plate away when I have just taken my last bite and haven't even put my fork down. Please do not make me feel like you are in a rush to turn over the table. I do like to linger, just a bit, ..not a lot, just a little. Please make sure the waiter refrains from saying "do you want change?" Just make the dining experience one to remember.
  12. Thanks Tracey, Knew I could count on my egullet friends . :-) Will have to find out if it opened yet. Karen
  13. Curlz, I definitely need to get over there. Have you made a trip to Princeton to The Bent Spoon, yet?
  14. Does anyone know of this new venture?
  15. I've been going to the Fairway in Paramus on Sunday morning, so no traffic nightmares. I did purchase French apricots, so they might now carry your prunes.
