i'll be in LA this weekend and am looking for a great place to have lunch near the santa monica pier and near beverly hills. looking for serious food with a somewhat lively (but not too much foo foo LA) atmosphere and great wine list.
Now you can have your brunch cocktail and eat it, too, with Justin Warner's Mojito Pancakes.
We get a better look inside a Williamsburg restaurant. Chef Connolly gets a little hand in the kitchen at Rider.
Smoky-Sweet BBQ Beef Short Ribs
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
A perfect margarita is a thing of beauty, and dangerously easy to make. Freshly squeezed lime juice, and the proper balance of 100% agave tequila and Cointreau, are essential.
