RESTAURANTS Nice Eating In The Prison …

THE SOUS-CHEF GOT MORE THAN 100 CONVICTIONS!* But he is an excellent cook. That’s what they found out in the prison in Cardiff (Wales) when an rehabilitation expert came up with the idea, to open a restaurant behind bars! Now up to 155 convicts are training at a time in the kitchen and the service. … Weiterlesen »

BARS Oh, What A Shame … (No. 20)

The Pub is the living room if the English, if they are not at home. That’s especially true for the countryside where the pub is the ganglion of most villages (just watch „Inspector Barnaby“!) There are about 8000 of these bars plus restaurant plus sportsgrund plus nightclub in the country, and as old as the … Weiterlesen »

RESTAURANTS The Nice Advice … (No. 65)

This thing (113 E. 29th Street) is three things: 1. An arti-sanal butcher shop with real meat. 2. A beer store, stocked with hund-reds of (obscure) brands. 3. A bar-room which serves as restaurant – standing up, on the bar stools or in the small garden. It’s open daily for lunch and dinner (14 – … Weiterlesen »

STYLE This Shop Is Top… (No. 17)

I’m fascinated by century old companies, still going strong. Just look in the internet for the list of Oldest Companies – you will be amazed: There is a hotel in Japan, open since 705, and a restaurant in Salzburg (Austria), open since 803.

RESTAURANTS The Nice Advice … (No. 51)

It could be that the „Garota de Ipanema“, which I recommended  earlier, is full. Or too noisy. Or closed. Or you don’t like it as much as I do. The alternative in Rio de Janeiro, at least in bright daylight, is the Cafe Luiz, three minutes walk from the Teatro Municipal, in the Rua Carioca, 39. It dosn’t look too inviting on my photo … Weiterlesen »

PORCELAIN Lost & Found … (No. 53)

A good story: An American soldier, stationed in Iraq, steals 19 golden plates from one of president Saddam Hussein’s palaces. An Iraqi citizen flees from the country, gets asylum in the USA, smuggels the tableware to Michigan and he and the ex-soldier sell them at eBay. An artist, Mike Rakowitz, and his friend, the cook … Weiterlesen »

RESTAURANTS The Nice Advice … (No. 1)

It’s not a secret destination. Or let’s say: The insiders know „Ballato“ – and love it. It’s a celebrity restaurant without advertising it. Go there and you might find Tom Hanks at the table to your left. Just so. Once inside you will find a picture gallery of the famous eaters but Emilio Vitolo, the … Weiterlesen »

RESTAURANTS The Nice Advice … (No. 26)

He is such a lovely person! Tiny Jean-Claude, one of the adopted children of Josephine Baker, the friendliest person in the world, speaking a funny English like Inspector Clouseau and serving French Cuisine in one of the smallest restaurants in New York, and on tables for two which are hardly big enough for a baby … Weiterlesen »
