I'm charged with hosting about 10 recent college grads for dinner on a Thursday night. Our non-profit will cover up to $15 per person. Any great ideas as to where we should go??
needs to be somewhere that $15 would cover most entrees and would take a reservation for 10 ppl. and if it's on the east side and/or near the F train, that would be bonus points!
thanks for your advice!
It's nearly miraculous...I have a weekday afternoon off! I'd like to celebrate with a yummy lunch, but I'm tired of the standard American and Italian places I usually end up at. Any suggestions for a spot in Manhattan with a creative/unique lunch that won't break the bank? an authentic "ethnic" place? a creative fusion spot? Restaurant week or prix fixe ($30ish) would be great.
(I was thinking Vermillion, but read several bad reviews of their lunch prix fixe and restaurant week offerings.)
bonus points if it's near 5th and 28th!
What's the most surprisingly yummy dish you've cooked up in an effort to clean out your fridge or pantry?
I hate to waste anything, so when I have several random items in the refrigerator that are precariously close to their expiration dates, I throw them all in a skillet and hope for the best! Do you do the same? If so, what crazy-sounding combinations have you discovered that are actually quite yummy? Have any "clean out the fridge" meals made their way into your regular repertoire? Any tips for using up disparate ingredients?
I recently threw together leftover white rice, hot-and-sour soup, kale salad (basically chopped kale dressed w/ lime juice, lemon and honey), parsley, cilantro, and a couple of eggs. After a few minutes in the frying pan, it was actually quite good!
I'm leaving for Guatemala in a few days, and I'm looking forward to authentic Guatemalan food! Any recommendations as to where/what to eat? Are there any can't-miss local specialties? I'm partial to street food/cheap eats, but I'd be willing to splurge if I knew it would be worth it. Thanks!
