Help, Miami locals and experts!
My boyfriend and I have never been to Miami, and will be there for one night only. We'd like to go someplace a little bit upscale, but not super swanky. Maybe something with modern Latin flair? Inventive seafood would be great, too.
Also, what about someplace for cocktails before/after dinner? Nothing to club-y for me; I prefer a relaxed atmosphere. Maybe on the water?
And I also have no idea where we should stay, so if you just happen to know of a nice boutique type hotel, I'd appreciate hearing about that, too!
I'm looking to make a career change from publishing to restaurant management (and I hope, one day, ownership). I'm thinking about enrolling in the Institute of Culinary Education's culinary management program. But it's a fairly significant investment (around $14,000), so I'm apprehensive about taking out a student loan if it's not essential to starting out in the field. (I worked in restaurants a little bit in college, but don't have any recent culinary experience.)
Has anyone been through the program? Does it give you an advantage in getting your first restaurant management job? Or has anyone considered enrolling at ICE and decided against it?
I'm looking to expand my ethnic eating experience, but I'm not sure where to try.
I work near Koreatown and would love to check out someplace there, but all the menus start to look the same after awhile. Where should I go?
And I ate in Curry Hill once, but can't remember where (clearly, it was underwhelming), and want to give it another shot. Suggestions?
I'm thinking of joining a CSA but I'm not familiar with the programs that are available. I work in Manhattan and live in Sunset Park (Brooklyn).
How do I go about finding a CSA I want to join? Can anybody recommend one? Thanks!
My family is spending the Thanksgiving weekend in the city with me and we need someplace to have our Thanksgiving meal. I'm looking for someplace sophisticated but comfortable, with a meal that has all the Thanksgiving basics, but with a twist. Modern traditional American, I guess? For example, I know my mom will want turkey, but we're not looking for sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top or green bean casserole made with canned soup.
There are 5 of us, and we can eat anytime between, say, 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. I live on the UWS, but we don't mind leaving the neighborhood.
