Re: Italiano?

Manny is the head chef. I believe he is not a constant presence in the kitchen, though, since he spends most of his time at Azorean. I believe there are one or two other chefs under him at Italiano.

Re: What's for dinner?

I'll second the mashed cauliflower. I made that not too long ago and enjoyed it more than I expected. It's just as easy as mashed potatoes and takes even less time, since the cauliflower cooks more quickly. (Ans it mashes easier, unless you overcook your potatoes.)

Re: Italiano?

I am always skeptical of people who say "this isn't REAL Italian food!" because so often what they mean is this isn't what they were served as kids. Italy has diverse cuisines and what is considered "Authentic" in Milan is very different from what is served in Naples or Sicily. It's like Mexican th...

Re: Italiano?

We haven't been...I don't know why. We go out to dinner fairly often due to our schedules and we love Azorean for its menu that is different from everywhere else.  We were just thinking of trying Italiano recently but again went elsewhere.   I know FC and s/he has high standards and can cook so if ...

Re: Italiano?

I have been twice and had the scallops marsala both times, which were on the specials list both visits. I got them the second time because they were so good the first time around. First time: 5 stars; second time, 4 stars -- they just didn't seem as tasty. But they were still really good.  Both time...

Re: Hawaii Missile Alert

Then why bother having these alerts at all? All is futile, there's no point in seeking shelter. If you do, some asshole thousands of miles away is going to call you a pussy.  I assume the running was either to find shelter somewhere to to meet up with loved ones. I guess you don't have any loved one...

Re: Trump's New Year Message

Well, you DID start with a sentence that unequivocally states "Yes, Dearborn Michigan" to the question "Does anyone know of any such place?" No qualifiers until the following sentence.

Like I said, you have a rascally trollish side. I'm sure you know better than to believe such tripe.

Re: Trump's New Year Message

My semiannual travels abroad ended last night. Once again, the nearly unanimous opinion I heard was "WTF is wrong with you Yanks?" 

Also once again, the sole holdouts from unanimity were the two guys from Russia.

It does seem a bit out of character for him to buy into this sort of thing. 

On the other hand, he does have a rascally trollish side to him.

Yes.  Dearborn, Michigan.  Well, according to reports - haven't been there myself, lately.  It just depends on whether you believe what you read.  -- peregrine Maybe you need to find some credible sources what you read?

Heck, folks right here on CAO have made that claim (that there are no-go zones where Islamic law has been imposed) about the UK. I am unaware of any places in the UK that the police cannot go because of sharia law. I suppose they might not go into a mosque without very, very good reason, but entire ...

Re: Hawaii Missile Alert

I know for sure that if I had 18 minutes to spend before armageddon, I would not be in any hurry to contact or find my loved ones, or to find some shelter. After all, the appearance of calm is far more important than contact with loved ones. So what if I don't get to say my final goodbyes? Far bette...

Re: Trump's New Year Message

What did Rosie O'Donnell do that is any different than what the Repubs did?  They bought the votes of Collins for about $2 million. Is it OK when the disgusting, treasonous, and unAmerican Mitch McConnell does this, but somehow not OK for Rosie O'Donnell to do the same? To mock how cheap Collins's s...
