i'm organizing a group lunch on a sunday for a friend who just returned to work after a long period of unemployment. can you recommend where to eat for a party of 8, one being a vegaterian and the others all very adventurous eaters? thanks!
Here's the ultimate, savory weeknight meal for your family. Extra-lean ground beef (which sometimes cooks up dry) works well here because it's combined with marinara to keep it moist.
Basic Boneless Roasted Leg of Lamb
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
We get a better look inside a Williamsburg restaurant. Chef Connolly gets a little hand in the kitchen at Rider.
Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
