On a recent trip to Costco (and mostly in an effort to recover financially from our Chicago trip), we picked up 4 nice hunks of steak. Neither of us are really into red meats, but sometimes a good ol’ juicy steak will hit the spot. Plus, we had an excuse to try more of the little mustards we brought back from Paris!
To go with the steak, I made Caesar dressing from the infamous Carmine’s cookbook (owned by Caleb’s roommate). It’s a little runny since I didn’t have hours to chill beforehand, but the taste was all there- anchovies, garlic, nom.
Black currant mustard is probably better suited for something really gamey… trusty seedy mustard for the win.

Head to Sushi Lovers on 5th st.
Order the Sad Roll, and politely ask them to make it 11/10 stars.
They make their own habañero sauce in house, and it’s delicious.
It’s hot, but it doesn’t take over the flavor of everything else. Of course if you get 11/10 stars, it can be very hot.
If you want a quicker cool-down, try the same roll but ask them to add avocado.
Some other Nom-tastic items at Sushi Lover are the Renee Chips, and the seared ahi hot plate!
The most ridiculous appetizer we’ve had in a long time was the Pane Rotondo at Amicci’s, in Baltimore. It’s super rich, almost enough to be a meal.
We also tried an awesome Gnocchi dish, and a seafood pasta. All of it was a win.
I don’t exactly recall where this was found, but I was captivated enough to snap the photo. It was somewhere in the East Village, NYC… I think around 4th or 5th st.
This is, without a doubt, the most awesome painting I have ever seen in a bar.
What’s the best thing to do when you’re at The National Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia on Memorial Weekend?
Put on the patriotic bow-ties, roll up your sleeves, and get in the debate!
