  1. Thanks for the additional tips. Wild Willy's is a place that turned up while I was doing independent research. I want to give Strip T's a try. Maybe Summer Shack, then one of the pubs/bars scargo recommended (Deep Ellum or Publick House). It's a work trip and I am not alone. Also, one night is blocked out for a dinner that the client/vendor is arranging. Still leaves a few nights to fill, but I have plenty to pick from. I'll be sure to report back on where I wind up.
  2. I've got a nice bottle of rye. Will pour one tonight.

    Wow. How terrible. I am proud I was a part of what he created and feel fortunate to have met him and even cooked with him.
  4. I'll check it out. I was in Cambridge last year for a long weekend (3 days, two nights) Ate at Craigie on Main one night. Had a great lunch at S&D Oyster in South End one day. Not totally sure what I'll be able to do on a work trip. I know it's not too far into Cambridge from where I am, but I usually don't like to do too much driving after work. (really a training class in Watertown, so we are done at a reasonable time)
  5. Will be in the Boston area (area west of Boston) next week for a work trip. Need some recommendations for dinner. Like local places. Like seafood. Not totally sure if I will have lots of time to get in closer to Boston and Cambridge and the like.
  6. Try Mughlai in far north Dallas, near the Galleria mall http://mughlaidallas.com
  7. Thanks for these suggestions. J Sheekey is a place I found while researching some other places. Seems part of a large restaurant group. May be a little spend for a post theater meal, but we'll still keep it in mind. Thanks for the other suggestions too, especially on Indian. I DO have plans for an Oyster card. Actually, a friend of mine is mailing me two of them from when he and his wife took a trip to London earlier this summer. They are setup as PAYG and have a few pounds on them. My understanding is that the PAYG cards cap at a max per day that is the same as you would pay on a trave
  8. Another vote for Noosa. It's not the thick Greek style that's gotten so popular recently, but it's super smooth and creamy. Love that stuff.
  9. I made a pumpkin pie for thanksgiving. But when I was at the store, I was only able to find the larger 30 ounce can. Enough to make two pies. But I only wanted one. So, now I am stuck with some leftover puree. I don't want to make another pie. If I had a way to roll out pasta dough, I think I would make some ravioli or something. But I don't and don't want to go buy some gadget to do this. Is there a way to use it in a different way with pasta? Really, I am leaning towards savory . But would be OK with something baked/sweet.
  10. A few weeks ago, I got my annual fix. Tasted like I remembered it. I still get a kick out of all the outrage over this sandwich. Every year it is reappears, you see the media stir up the pot by telling us how bad it is, showing us pictures that are supposed to make us shudder in fear. I mean, really? Is a frozen McRib patty and more scary looking than the frozen hamburger patties that McDonalds slings out every day all year long?
  11. I'm going to London the first time ever the week after next. I'm getting totally overwhelmed by restaurants and places to eat. Day time will be filled with typical sight seeing. Not sure how muchI can plan lunches. Will probably mostly "wing it" and figure out something based on where we happened to be when we get hungry. Don't really want to go far out of the way to get food. Really, for now, mostly looking for dinner spots. We'll be staying in in Mayfair (JW Marriott Grosvenor House to be exact). So, places in and around that area that are a convenient walk are ideal. Mostly, looki
  12. Just got back from another weekend in the Central Texas area where I once again had a lot of BBQ. The lineup Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, TX John Mueller Meat Company in Austin, TX La Barbecue in Austin, TX Franklin Barbecue in Austin, TX Mickelthwait Craft Meats in Austin, TX Kreuz Market, Lockhart, TX Note that 4 of the 6 spots are in Austin city limits. There is a very strong link between several of these spots. The Mueller family. This legendary family of Texas BBQ has great influence. And it's turning out great BBQ. With the legend of Louie Mueller and his son Bobby, come Bobby
  13. I hope they will carry this size in Dallas. I have bought the one liter bottle before. it was awesome. Of course, I was forced to have several glasses of this stuff on the rocks. Not that that is a bad thing. But getting it in a smaller bottle would be nice.
