I’ve been a fan of the Beacon Hill Bistro for a long time. They have always consistently delivered on food and service over the near 10 years that I’ve been going there. I also like their compact and well-chosen wine list. There are always appealing and affordable options to be had.

I ended up again having an impromptu day off this past Saturday and what a beautiful day it was to have off! This is one of my favorite times of the year, when winter fades into Spring, and everything is in bloom. My allergies hate it, but I don’t care too much because Boston becomes [...]

Dan’s busy performance schedule brought us out to Concord, NH a few days ago. The Concord Chorale was giving a performance that included the Requiem by Fauré. I’m so glad that I was able to attend because I’m not sure I’ve ever listened to the piece from start to finish. The music is subtle and [...]

A week or so ago, I discovered a fantastic website: ArtsBoston.org. It offers a listing of events going on in and around the Boston area including plays, operas, exhibitions, and concerts, etc. It’s a revelation for me since I’m never exactly sure when I’m going to be free, given my erratic work schedule. If I [...]

After cooking such a huge feast for only three people on Easter Sunday, I have quite a few fabulous leftovers to use. I was sitting around last evening trying to decide what to use them for, when inspiration in the form of the Manhattan Food Project struck. I’ve been following this blog for a few [...]

This is the first Easter Sunday that I have not worked in a long time. Being in the restaurant industry, you are generally expected to work holidays, and for the past several years, I have spent my Easters and Christmases with my work family. While I enjoy their company, it was really nice to be [...]

Back in the day, when I traveled on occasion to New York for lessons, I used to eat at a Chinese restaurant near Lincoln Center. There wasn’t all the much remarkable about the restaurant except for one dish that I particularly fell in love with called Purple Moon. I have no idea how it was [...]

OK, I admit it… I have Spring fever. We have had a few rare and perfect days here in Boston recently that have made me crave warmer weather and the foods that go with it. Unfortunately, the weather has not been 100% in line with what I wish it were. However, there are ways that [...]
