    Reality Wine Cellars

    i got verrrrrrry lucky and scored a 650 bottle vinotemp on craigslist for $500 (regular $3000) before things started to heat up this past summer. I LOVE IT!!
  11. my husband & i fought for weeks over who would get which cavity for their stuffing (neck or other end). of course i won & got the big cavity. well, we both had stuffing left over & put the extra into casserole dishes. well, after dinner i commented that all my stuffing was gone and he just nodded and said it went over well... the next morning, i found the casserole w/ MY stuffing still in the oven. dead.

    Sounds wonderful! I really have to get to this restaurant! How was the rest of your trip?
  16. At the beginning of November I'll be waking up each morning at an inn directly next door to Bouchon bakery. Rising each morning to the smell of buttery pastry and coffee sounds fine to me. Oh how hard it will be to have to choose each night from Redd, Ad Hoc, Bouchon, or Bistro Jeanty. To have such troubles . . . ← Heads-up on Bouchon bakery: It has been getting a LOT of downhill reports lately on CH, Yelp, and from Locals (Samgiovese, care to comment?). Apparently they can't keep staff... ← the entire mgmt staff of both places has turned over since february.

    wedding gift wine

    another good question - where will you be shipping the wine to?
  20. i'd ask your exec chef (who i assume will give you a <hopefully positive> recommendation) if they'd mind you putting "sous chef" on your resume as your current title.
  21. i can't remember the name either, but they are no longer there... it was on Union at steiner
  22. they have the best little lamb chops ever!!
