Boozy Brunch at the Cutting Room

Mark and Mathew know thousands of tunes and what’s performed works starts with requests paid for via Venmo. If someone in the audience doesn’t like the song they’re playing, they can outbid that song. whereas Mark and Mathew stop immediately and play the new request. If no one sends a paid request, Mark and Mathew play the Baby Shark Song until the audience is numb and desperate for something new.

Hampton Junction Nonna’s Kitchen

Tonight’s special at Hampton Junction Nonna’s Kitchen was a roasted veal chop, perfectly prepared medium rare, accompanied by grilled asparagus and roasted potatoes. Exquisite is the word for this dish. Next, we consumed a personal pepperoni pizza with a light homemade crust and crispy. Then, right out of the pasta-making machine, the cheese ravioli were filled with a light-as-a-feather ricotta stuffing, ideally seasoned, and served in light oil and garlic with white wine reduction, garnished with broccoli rabe and sundried tomatoes.

A Nashville Food Tour

We started the A Nashville Food Tour at the Far Better Distillery, a small distillery where the owner is passionate about “moonshine.” While I don’t generally keep moonshine at home, some readers may find its provenance and flavors fascinating.

El Tropical Cuban Restaurant

Cuban food is a marvelous benefit of visiting South Florida. We’ve been to a few Cuban restaurants and keep returning to El Tropical in Cape Coral. They serve fresh, delicious fare and offer a large variety of authentic recipes. The staff is friendly and attentive and the service is excellent. Seating is homey and comfortable and local patrons rave about the selections, including those with a Cuban heritage .

Nellie’s Cafe in the Catskills

Between the approach of the Ides of March and St. Patrick’s Day, it seemed the perfect time to leave town. I signed up for a one-day bus trip to Nellie’s for an Irish Café country experience and an early St. Patrick’s day celebration.
