My SO and I will be in St. Petersburg, FL area for 2 and half days and I've been put in charge of lining up where we should eat. His requirements are to pick a place with ice cold beer and conch listed on the menu. My requirement is to find a place where the locals go and tend to be less touristy. Suggestions for places you've actually dined that meet both of our requirements? Oh, we will have a car, are flying in and out of Tampa and don't mind travelling a bit farther out for a great place. Thanks!
About nine years ago I spent a couple of days in Tossa de Mar on Spain's Costa Brava. One night we had a fantastic buttery-garlicky fish dish which my memory (and Google) tells me was called cimi tomba. Does anyone know of the recipe for this masterpiece of Catalan cuisine?

I bought some "fresh" (previously frozen) sea scallops from the grocer yesterday. They are currently in a small airtight container in the coldest part of my fridge. I don't want to re-freeze them, because they'll disintegrate upon re-thawing, but I don't want to eat them today or all of them tomorrow (I have five). How long can I expect these scallops to last in the fridge?

I'd love to add more fish to my diet. But I can't afford salmon or tuna steaks or swordfish or any of that yuppie crap. I happen to live near a decent fish market. They sell all kinds of cheaper fish: spots and chubbs and mackerels and whatnot. Tell me about those. How do I pick 'em? How do I cook 'em? Which ones are the tastiest? Which are the best bargain?

Why are you supposed to soak soft shell crabs in milk before cooking them? Most of the recipes I've found call for this, but none say why. None of the cookbooks I've consulting (including On Food and Cooking and the CIA Professional Chef) have an answer.
This weekend, I remembered how much I love to eat fish. Though I'm not really worried about mercury or other pollution, I don't want piles of dead birds or overfishing on my conscience. What should I look for at the fishmonger? Bonus points for less-expensive fish. [more inside]

SommelierFilter - Having never eaten gumbo before, I'm at a loss as to which wine to bring to dinner tonight. Various Google results say anything from white wine with seafood gumbo to a red wine to go with spicy food. Er, right. Complicating matters ever so slightly is my current location: which Italian wine should I bring?
Can anyone recommend a good fresh seafood market in northern Virginia? Does such an animal exist? The counters at the local grocery stores are awful here (not that they are ever great).
