Re: “Make Queen's Feast your feast

Also don't make this your "special night out." If you have an anniversary or birthday and want a romantic private evening, go to a nonparticipating restaurant and pay full price. Don't come to a Restaurant Week location and then demand special treatment and complain that it is too crowded and noisy- you get what you pay for.

Re: “Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party Cake

Holy jumpin' jehosaphat!!! I just made this cake into cupcakes (I have a small cupcake business that I operate from home). I can't believe how delicious they are! I can't believe how incredibly moist and light the cake is! I make North American buttercreams for all my icing recipes and have never tried making swiss buttercream before today. What an incredibly successful first try! I mixed together a small portion of the swiss buttercream and some seedless raspberry jam and filled the cupcakes with this mixture first before icing and sprinkling with coconut. All the components of this recipe put together made an outstanding cupcake. Thank you for sharing Dorie's recipe. I am going to make this in cake form for my mom's 82nd birthday coming up. She is going to love it. This truly is the Perfect Party Cake... wow!

"Ignore the old Big Wok II sign"? That's kinda harsh. I'm not a fan, but they didn't go anywhere.

Re: “An epic list of places to do brunch in Charlotte

Had a great time at Sunday brunch at Tupelo Honey. Started off by being shunted to a table next to the passageway to the restrooms and bar area, so we got to enjoy the constant parade of waiters going back and forth during our meal. Things got even better when we realized we weren't exactly thrilled with the menu, but then came the biscuit (one each) - which were greasy and so full of shortening, I literally had a thin film of shortening stuck to the roof of my mouth for 10 minutes afterward. But most of all I enjoyed the utterly disinterested, marginally attentive waiters, having to wait till doomsday for drink refills, plus again, the cavalcade of waitstaff whizzing by our conveniently placed table. The one saving grace was that the food was very good. Everything else - not so much. I could have used another biscuit, but it was hard enough getting someone's attention for drink refills so I didn't bother about the biscuit. No one on staff seemed to like being there. This place needs a BIG improvement in its service, and has a loooong way to go before achieving actual "attentive service" status. Maybe they'll do that, but I won't know because I won't be going back.

Re: “An epic list of places to do brunch in Charlotte

Surprised that in all of the summaries there was not one mention of the quality of the coffee. Brunch in Paris is nothing without good coffee and that's what we're expecting here. Will try some out and post our favorite! Thanks for the list.
