Petit fours in Boston area?

A recent book has my partner wanting petit fours. I can find them online but I have no way of knowing the quality and would rather buy them from a bakery but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Does anyone know of a quality pastryshop/bakery that carries them?

How to defrost salmon quickly?

Is there a good way to defrost a side of salmon (too big for the microwave) that doesn't take very long (dinner is imminent)? Will "cut it in half and defrost by weight in the microwave" work, or is there something better I should be doing?

After taking a stab myself, I am turning to you, the good people of MetaFilter, for a 12 oz. travel mug recommendation. [more inside]

Corned beef by the bay

FoodFilter: A dear friend of mine just moved to the Bay Area. He happens to be absolutely crazy about Reubens. But where can he get one now that he has moved?!
