  1. Visiting NY and looking for Piment d'Espelette. Went to Kalustyan's but they were out (though I did find fennel pollen!). Any ideas? -Rick
  2. Was able to make a reservation at Citronelle for tomorrow night! I love Michel Richard's cookbook, so I jumped on it right away.
  3. We are going to be staying at the Crowne Royal on 14TH AND K STREETS, NW. Are there any must visit places near there? No problem taxiing about the city, though, if others have ideas. If we were to pick just one restaurant (not that we won't pick several) that is totally required, which would it be? What are some that are considered to be the best? Bar Pilar's food sounds phenomenal... I couldn't find a cocktail menu for it though. Central Michel Richard also looks great. Thanks Hannah.
  4. A last minute trip to DC is in the works, and I'm really hoping to hit up some of the cooler cocktail establishments downtown. I fear I won't be able to find a stellar tiki locale, as would please my blog greatly (www.kaiserpenguin.com), but I'm definitely up for suggestions. More traditional and modern bars would be welcome too. I see there is an intense thread on good eats in DC as well, so I'll check that out. Apologies if this topic has been brought up fifty times before. Any last minute help would be more than appreciated! Drink, food, music, anything. Thanks!
  5. Kelbo's Scorpion 3/4oz lime juice 3/4oz orange juice 1/2oz passion fruit syrup 1/2oz orgeat 1oz dark Jamaican rum 3/4oz cognac 1/2oz gin 6oz crushed ice Blend on high for 3 seconds. Pour into a fun tiki mug. This potion is so wonderfully balanced and delicious.
  6. You beat me to it plattetude! St. Germain mixes quite interestingly with rye. My first attempt, though not miraculous, is worth a try. 2 1/2oz rye (Old Overholt) 1/2oz St. Germain 2 dashes Peach bitters (Fee's) I'm eager to give your other two a try as well.
  7. second map link got angry. Give this a try: http://tinyurl.com/32sebn
  8. Ok, here's my plan: Sunday: 3:30pm - Meet my host at Astor Wine and Spirits 5:00pm - Pegu Club 7:00pm - excellent rum / tiki party and meeting lots of fun strangers (including Scott from Scottes' Rum Pages - http://scottesrum.com/) map: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geoc...=UTF8&z=15&om=0 Monday: 12:00pm - Jean Georges next - Essex Market next - Chinatown next - Chelsea Market 5:30pm - Rumfest at Valbella 9:30pm - PDT ??? - Death and Company map: Suggestions for changes or additions? Suggestions on transportation? I'll have my car on Sunday, but we'll be training in (from Stony Brook) and out of the city on Monday.
  9. You are all proving to be massively wonderful at determining my schedule. Thank you so much. Keep the ideas coming! It seems like Jean Georges is the way to go. I'll give them a call to make a reservation. More as I decide. And Nathan, thanks for the kind words for Kaiser Penguin.
  10. I'll be in NYC this coming Monday for RumFest and want to maximize my time in the city. I've only visited a couple of times but never since I became a foodie and cocktail lover. Ideally I'd like to hit: - a delicious, unique, mid-priced ($20-40) restaurant for lunch - a bar that Kaiser Penguin shouldn't miss (Pegu Club, maybe?) - a fun market that has lots of interesting foods - a liquor store that will have spirits / liqueurs I can't easily get in PA - a cigar shop if there's time Any help would be massively appreciated!

    Marie Brizard Orgeat!?! Oh, the excitement. Please detail. Has anyone made their owN/
  12. There is a recipe for Amer Picon by Jamie Boudreau in the latest issue of Imbibe.
  13. I was vastly amused to see PA and WA immediately dismissed as "impossible to deal with" in this discussion. (not that I disagree) On the other hand, I've found that I can access nearly anything here by putting in a special liquor order directly from the company. Sometimes this requires me to purchase 6 bottles, but who wouldn't go through 6 bottles of Lemon Hart Demerara 151?

    Katie! I'm not sure why I addressed you as "Karen." Perhaps trying too many MxMo recipes in one night Are the cassis SLOs available in individual bottles? I just did a few searches and see that Marie Brizard Orange Curacao is now back as an SLO - rejoice! I'm working to see if they can get the Lemon Hart Demerara 151. Thanks again for all the great info.

    Karen, The Diablo is quite tasty! I just found a bottle of Marie Brizard Creme de Cassis on my travels. Have you found a reliable source in PA? My MxMo post can be found here: http://www.kaiserpenguin.com/mxmo-tequila-acapulco/ Cheers!
