Freedom Fizzles in NYC with Proposed Super Sided Soda Ban

I rarely feel compelled to give my opinion publicly, but this one has me fuming. Mayor Bloomberg of New York City wants to ban supersized soda and sugary beverages sold at restaurants, delis, food carts, movie theaters, and arenas.  The ban would apply to any container holding more than 16 ounces, and if passed by the NYC’s Board of Health, could go into effect as early as March, 2013. Violators would face fines.

 Truth be told, I do not drink soda, even small serving sizes, and I do…

The Superman Complex & Customer Service

I, like many other Americans, tuned in to watch the final episode of Smallville this last Friday night. For those not familiar, it is the story of Clark Kent growing up in Smallville, Kansas and his life lessons and upbringing that lead him to become the Man of Steel.

No Kid Hungry in America. Make a Difference though Share Our Strength

As the season begins to turn, and the weather starts to turn cold, we all prepare for the next few months that will be spent mostly inside. During these months, we’ll put down our salad forks and pick up a soup spoon to compliment the weather with warm and cozy comfort food. However, this is not a luxury that we are all able to endure. Try to imagine being a young child, coming inside after hours of playing in the snow, and not being able to refuel with a nice meal. Think about how it feels to… Continue

Thanks NYC for protecting me against restaurants!

Thank you New York City, you banned smoking from all the restaurants and bars that I visit. It's so hard to believe that the patrons and employees don't care that smoking is bad for you. But you care. Also thank you for making the Dunkin' Donuts down the street post the calorie counts for the donuts. I used to think that donuts were okay to eat now and then, but thanks to the sign, I now see that there are just too many calories for me. Finally, thank you for…

BLT NYC

Interesting grouping of letters, but a very powerful message to restaurateurs. BLT Steak is an impressive operation. My perspective is clearly FOH as a guest and not a management review, but I think we can learn something here.



Having dined at their Washington D.C. location and now twice in NYC on E 57th, they rock. There are four areas that I look at when I dine; food, service, ambiance and energy. BLT delivers on all four, completely and consistently.



I try not to write… Continue

Delivered Dinner Party Recipes - Asparagus Bruschetta

Each recipe that we create for a new dinner party must meet a few requirements. First and foremost it has to be fantastic! Secondly it has to be able to either be prepared quickly (when the guests arrive) or be able to hold for an hour or so (if prepared in advance). Both can be equally daunting when trying to pull of a great tasting and great looking hors d' oeuvre. This one has a little of both. There are elements that can be set up making it easy… Continue
