I'm meeting a friend for dinner who's a NYU law student who insists that a newish place called Lexi's on W.3d ("Mexican", says she) is good. Anyone been? Any recommendations? (No, "don't go" isn't now an option, so let's keep this optimistic).
Celery is such an underrated vegetable, often used as a flavor accent for soups or Thanksgiving stuffing. But it shines as the star in a salad, thanks to its fantastic crunch and naturally salty flavor.
Coffee and prime rib seem like unlikely partners, but Ryan Farr's recipe reveals they both have an earthy quality that makes them a natural match. Just be sure to scrape off any excess coffee rub from the meat before serving.
