I'm in charge of picking a place for dinner for 3 gals who are getting out of the CT burbs for an evening. The occasion is a 40th birthday. Not looking to go crazy but something fun. Steaks and fish. Bustling atmosphere. Any suggestions??
For maximum flavor, Naomi Pomeroy doesn’t just roast chicken thighs. Instead, she crisps the skin, then braises the pieces in a supertasty mix of marinated artichokes, olives, sherry, garlic, lemon and thyme.
We give quick-cooking orzo pasta the risotto treatment—toasting the grains first, then slowly incorporating hot liquid until creamy and starchy—for a comforting "orzotto." The rich egg yolk ties it all together.
