food for a picnic at Storm King Art Center (New Windsor, NY)

I'm planning to go to the Storm King Art Center (in New Windsor, NY) on Friday. I'd like to eat something delicious for lunch while I'm there or before I go. I can bring it from Manhattan (or anyplace in the city, I guess), but I would have to buy it the day before on Thanksgiving. Or, I could eat near the museum or near my hotel in Monroe. [more inside]

What to do about messy toddler at a restaurant?

I have a two-year-old, and occasionally I take her out to a restaurant. (Nothing fancy or inappropriate for kids -- think Chili's.) She sits in a high chair and she's pretty well-behaved, but she drops a lot of food on the floor (because she's two). What is the best way to handle this situation? [more inside]

What's the secret to those awesome pub-style dill pickle spears?

My favourite thing about ordering a burger at a pub or diner is the dill pickle spear on the side, which seems to be a different style of pickle than the inferior Bicks I get at the store. They're longer, slightly softer, and milder/less acidic, though still definitely dill pickles, not sweet. I would take recommendations for brands or delis in Toronto, but I'm also interested in making my own, so recipes and pointers for this specific style of pickle are also welcome. (Disclaimer: I've never pickled anything ever.)

Christmas Eve Dinner in Munich

Nice dinner with vegetables on Oahu

I'm on vacation with my husband and his family on Oahu, and I swear I've eaten more animal protein this week than I usually eat in a month. Where can my husband and I go for a nice, sit-down meal tonight that will hopefully include lots of vegetables? We're staying in Kailua, so preferably somewhere nearby, and I don't want to spend more than about $25 per entree. Thanks!

Restaurant reco near Chastain Park in Atlanta?

My wife and I are headed to Chastain Park to see Mark Knopfler next Saturday. Can anyone recommend a restaurant on that side of town? It could be really high end but if it's just cool, that's cool too. We're beer fans and have no food restrictions. Thanks!

Ladies work shoes that can pass as business casual

I work in events for a restaurant. Mostly, this involves office work or sit-down client consultations. Our business casual dress code gives me flexibility for what kind of shoes I can wear. I typically wear black leather low-heeled pumps. (Clark's is a brand I favor.) Semi-regularly, though, my work necessitates me being on my feet all day to manage events personally. On these days, I am in and out of the kitchen and I go back and forth from indoors to outdoors. The main thing is that on these days, I may not sit down for ten hours straight. I'm looking to find a pair of shoes I can wear on that will line up with my typical look but will also be both non-slip and kind to my feet when I spend the entire day hustling around. What are some sellers (online or real world) and styles you would recommend?

TriBeCa Recca Menda

Can you personally recommend a vegetarian friendly restaurant that serves healthy, "clean" (i.e. not oily or rich, so sadly not a lot of foods from delicious traditions) food in TriBeCa that is not gazillions of dollars a head?

Small San Francisco Restaurants for Buyout

We are planning a wedding! One thought I have is to buyout a small restaurant for the reception or even ceremony+reception. Do you know any restaurants that are small-ish (and thus may be semi-affordable for buyout) with excellent food & drink, nice decor and hopefully a nice outdoor space in the back? We are thinking we will likely have something like 60 guests and probably not a full band -- maybe some type of strings grouping. Fairly neighborhood and cuisine agnostic, and would also be open to Marin. [more inside]

How does one learn the ropes of running a restaraunt?

Mrs. Karaage and I are avid foodies and cooks. We are also white collar DINKs in the DC area that has never worked in a restaraunt a day of our lives.

I just finished training as a food runner/expo at a high volume, fine dining restaurant in LA.
