  1. My husband and I ate at Flyte in June and loved it. The menu was quite varied and it changes weekly (or daily...can't remember which). What we particularly enjoyed about this restaurant was that it was more of a dining experience in that we felt no pressure to hurry our dinner along. They weren't trying to turn the tables. There is a "room" by the kitchen similar to a chef's table where we sat. There were 4 tables in the area and they had it separated from the main dining area with curtains. You'll need to make reservations. Karen
  2. Just found out that we are going to be doing a Tequila Tasting this summer at the beach. I'm not in charge of the tequila aspect but, instead, food. I'm not even sure if this is the correct forum to be posting in but I certainly hope someone out there can offer me some suggestions. We're planning on tasting 6 to 7 different tequilas and I'm looking for complimentary foods to accompany them. My past tequila drinking never involved food so I'm at a loss. I think they're only including me in the tasting because I'll be making the food! My only restrictions are that 1 person is allergic to fish but can eat shellfish...weird, I know. Can anyone help? Also, anyone have a favorite tequila that we should include in our mix? Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Karen
  3. We ate at Tayst Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of it. I highly recommend it. Karen
  4. I just finalized the menu yesterday and (shudder) getting ready to plan for Easter. Among numerous heart-shaped chocolate items, I'm doing a cherry pie for two, butterscotch pot de creme, a heart-shaped pull apart cinnamon roll coffee cake, and blueberry bread pudding for two. Karen
  5. This year the big hits were pumpkin seed brittle and milk chocolate pistachio toffee. Karen
  6. Yummy! Everyone has been so helpful and I truly appreciate it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Karen p.s. Is anyone else finding the new set-up on viewing posts as confusing as I am?
  7. Thanks a million for the great suggestions! Karen
  8. Thanks a million for the great suggestions! Karen
  9. Wonderful suggestions. I'm putting The Doric on the top of the list as well as the King's Wark bar...what's a wark? Will also check out the pastry shops. Karen
  10. Sounds lovely...and we do love our beer! I'm wondering if it is on a train route...hmmm....will investigate! Thank you.
  11. Thanks for correcting my typo!!!! Karen I've also heard about the deep fried mars bars. Might be something to try once.
  12. What initially was a big blow out trip planned among two couples has now turned into a honeymoon with chaperones! We will be honeymooning in Scotland starting August 31 but with all the expense of paying for a wedding, we find ourselves a bit strapped for cash. So what I'm hoping for is some good food/drink suggestions for folks traveling on a budget. We will be in Edinborough, Inverness and Glasgow. Does anyone have suggestions for good local eats that won't break the bank? I'm also a pastry chef so if you've got some suggestions for pastry shops, I'll take them as well. On the drinking side, I got rave reviews for a place in Edinborough called Finnegan's Wake....and that's about it. Thoughts? Thanking you in advance. Karen
  13. My company is in the planning stages of a commissary for our 4 stores and I am going to get a separate chocolate room. Yippee! Anyhow, my question to you all is what temperature and humidity level is the ideal? Karen
  14. I was there. In order not to spoil anyone's fun in watching it on tv (whenever that might be), if you pm me I'll fill you in on the results. Karen
