lose a wall in your home, gain a dream kitchen


what’s standing between you and your dream kitchen? often, it’s a wall — a relic from the days when a separate dining room was a must-have in every home.today, formal meals have gone the way of the rotary phone in most households, and a room just for dining seems like a waste of precious space.“the formal dining room was popular for a while,” said cassie frick, an edina realty agent. but most of her clients view them as so last-century. “everybody wants the open concept. the vast majority don’t want a formal dining room anymore.”frick included. she and her husband recently remodeled their 1970s home in minnetonka, extending the kitchen by eliminating an adjacent dining room.“for us, with two kids, a formal dining room does not make sense,” she said. “it was a big room but we never went the

chicago magazine dining editor penny pollack retiring after 30 years


penny pollack, who has been chicago magazine’s dining editor since 1994, is retiring.pollack’s career with chicago magazine goes back 30 years, when she was hired as a part-time dining assistant. as editor, she created “morsels,” one of the very first online dining reports, and later created the electronic newsletter “the dish.”“about the only thing that hasn’t changed on the restaurant scene in 30 years is my appetite,” pollack said. “nothing more exciting than going to a new restaurant — gibsons italia opened last night — or spotting a trend — kale, brussels sprouts, burrata, community tables.”in a statement, pollack said she relished the opportunity to “take a whack at the pile of books on my nightstand” and “finally sort out my contacts on my iphone.”presumably pizza is part of her pos






in modern homes, the dining room is due for a revival – the denver post


by jura koncius, the washington postfor many overscheduled families, “dining” has been reduced in recent years to grabbing a plate of food at a kitchen island or on an ottoman in front of a screen. even in homes that have a separate dining room, the table is regularly commandeered for homework or, at this time of year, as a tax-prep command center.but there are signs that we are heading back to the dinner table, designers say. their clients are tiring of grabbing meals in the “great room,” a more informal, open space that often accommodates drive-by eating and lounging. or they’re annoyed with noisy restaurants and want to do more entertaining at home. many young families are looking for a more structured family dinner hour around a real table.“everything is so casual these days, it’s nice






fine dining or fast food? eating's better in power five


lincoln, neb. — at nebraska, athletes dine on specially made entrees such as mahi mahi steaks, bison meatloaf or chicken marsala at the lewis training table.at akron, athletic director larry williams can only hope his athletes skip the fried stuff at the robertson dining hall buffet and any runs to fast-food restaurants.the hundreds of millions of dollars that have poured into the power five conferences, much of it from television rights fees, have enriched dozens of schools and allowed them to give their athletes the best of everything, right down to what they eat every day. schools outside the power five draw far less revenue and many provide the same dining options available to non-athletes on campus.nebraska, for example, will spend $3.3 million this year on athlete nutrition. in addit






bj's ramps up fine dining, adding slow roasted meats to its 140 item menu


bj’s restaurants continues to drift from its deep-dish pizza roots.the huntington beach-based casual dining chain recently launched a fine-dining inspired line of slow-roasted meats. the choices include prime rib, a double bone-in pork chop, pork ribs, a prime rib dip, hand-pulled turkey dip and a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.chief executive greg trojan said bj’s is using state-of-the-art ovens to slow roast its meats as long as eight hours each day.“this is a category of items, large format proteins, that frankly isn’t done that well in casual dining. we saw that as an opportunity,” trojan said.trojan said the company has been testing various cooking methods for two years. initially, the culinary team tried sous vide cooking, but the “hot water bath” method — commonly used in chef-driven

northport trustees on tuesday will consider a resolution to ban rooftop dining in the village, a move that would end a push by the owners of skipper’s pub to add a seasonal rooftop bar.village officials said the resolution was not directed at skipper’s, but would clarify the code — which they contend already bans outdoor dining.most popular“the outdoor dining code, as it currently exists, there’s no way that you can come to the conclusion that it would include rooftop dining,” village attorney stuart besen said. “this has nothing to do in particular with skipper’s.”storyvillage denies pub's rooftop bar application storypub wants to add $400g rooftop barthe restaurant’s owners, paul and marie gallowitsch, in july 2015 sought approval for a $400,000 rooftop addition at their restaurant in th

the chandelier makes a comeback – the mercury news


by cathy hobbsthe chandelier, once a common and popular fixture in the home, is now making a comeback. whether for function or aesthetics, chandeliers can help make an instant statement.entrywaysthe entryway is a common location for a chandelier. the visual impact of placing a chandelier there can help set the tone and introduce guests to what is to come.dining areas chandeliers can be used to define rooms, especially dining areas. often the selection of the dining table as far as its shape, style and even location is dictated by the location and style of the chandelier placed above it. typically dining areas have an air of formality, and the style of chandelier can reflect this or a more casual feel.other rooms from living rooms to kitchens and even bedrooms, these days few design rules a






saved by the max team unveils riot feast, a new limited-run dining theme


what would happen if riot fest opened a restaurant?that is the intriguing/deranged premise behind the riot feast, a three-month pop-up from the team that brought chicago the wildly successful saved by the max dining concept.opening july 8 at the former saved by the max site (1941 w. north ave.), the riot feast aims to provide a riot fest-inspired menu in what principals are describing as a "fascinating turn-of-the-century carnival-style environment."no, we don't know what that means, either.the saved by the max team (derek berry, zack eastman and steve harris) are collaborating with riot fest's michael petryshyn to create the riot feast. brian fisher, the original executive chef of saved by the max and the executive chef at entente, will oversee the menu (details of which have not been rel






take a power breakfast at pacific dining car in downtown l.a.


why: since 1921, this quirky downtown restaurant has been a gathering place for l.a. power brokers and carnivores.what: most restaurants made out of replica train cars are diner-type joints. but the pacific dining car aims higher. steaks are a specialty, and the hefty prices are clearly aimed at the expense-account crowd. it's open around the clock, and it's been in its current location since 1923. part of the harrowing cop film "training day" was shot here, and michael connelly has used the restaurant in his harry bosch detective books. breakfast is a good time to catch power diners in the act. lunch is a good time to order the caesar salad with filet mignon ($41.95).where: 1310 w. 6th st., in downtown l.a., two miles west of city hall. (there's a second location on wilshire in santa moni

the twin cities metro area is about to lose another fine-dining restaurant.brewer’s table, surly brewing co.’s high-end, beer-focused restaurant, will close in early august. chef jorge guzman will leave the southeast minneapolis destination brewery.“with the brewer’s table, we’ve raised the bar with food and beer pairings,” said surly owner omar ansari. “two years later, it feels like we’ve accomplished those things, and now it feels like it’s time for a change for surly.”the impending demise of brewer’s table is another stark measure of fine dining’s decline in the twin cities, mirroring a national trend that has consumers opting out of formal, special-occasion restaurants in favor of casual, less-expensive dining experiences.in the past two years, the upper end of the local dining scene

dine in high style at the former ahwahnee in yosemite valley


why: because this is a great room. and you're probably hungry from tromping around the great valley just outside.what: for about 90 years, the ahwahnee hotel and its woodsy but elegant dining room were the epicenter of old-school style in yosemite valley, with 34-foot-high ceilings, granite pillars and pine trestles. then came the national park service's great trademark dispute with jilted concessionaire delaware north in early 2016.now we have to call this place the majestic yosemite hotel, which just feels wrong. (the address, meanwhile, is still ahwahnee drive.) but the hotel and dining room are just as grand as ever, the stone fireplace just as warm, the advance reservations just as vital.bear in mind: it's easier and cheaper to do breakfast or lunch than it is for dinner. and you won'






my favorite room: donna mills takes a golden opportunity to add magic to her din


actress donna mills was perfectly happy with her low-key brentwood dining room, with its off-white walls and troves of antiques.that is, until she stepped into the silver lake home of her friend, artist adam kurtzman, and saw his gold-colored walls.“i took one look and thought, ‘that’s what i want,’” she said.kurtzman spent 10 days applying small squares of gold leaf onto the walls of mills’ dining room, elevating it from a classic space into something more dazzling.known for her work on the soap opera “knots landing,” mills will next be seen on abc’s rebooted “battle of the network stars.” she shares the nearly 5,000-square-foot home with her longtime boyfriend, larry.what makes the gold walls so special?each square was applied by hand. there are tiny spaces here and there, and the fact t






temporis review: les nomades alums creating innovative fare in noble square


if this were an mgm musical, co-chefs sam plotnick and don young would be the plucky pair of strivers (i'll let them fight over who's mickey and who's judy) putting on a show.which they sort of are. plotnick and young (a third chef, evan fullerton, was here at the beginning but has returned to 1913 restaurant + wine bar in roselle) are the driving forces behind temporis, a tiny fine-dining room in noble square.though the two are veterans of les nomades (as was fullerton), their name recognition is probably close to zero, and temporis' exterior barely betrays the restaurant's existence. establishing a dining destination, when nobody knows who you are and it's easy to miss where you are, is a challenge. so is opening in january, when most restaurants are in survival mode. and the format — a






tired of waiting in long lines on the ship? how to skip them and enjoy the cruis


you're standing in line waiting for an elevator and it hits you: "i paid a lot for this cruise and all i'm doing is wasting my time." sometimes it seems that the bigger the ship, the longer the lines.but there are ways to avoid the crowds, according to the online experts at cruise critic, which recently suggested six strategies to shorten or eliminate your waits.among the tips for circumventing crowds:if you're worried about getting a deck chair, get up early and snag one. you know if you wait until after breakfast, you'll be lucky to get one at all — much less a chair in a prime spot.be flexible when it comes to dining. choose mealtimes that are less popular. if you stagger meals by opting for flexible dining, you can eat in the main dining room whenever you want during off-peak hours.tha






treat yourself to spago in beverly hills, and a possible tableside visit from th


why: because wolfgang puck, who likes to work the dining room, might stop by and personally sprinkle lemon juice on your perfectly grilled fish. “there, better?” he asks.  of course it is.what: a meal atspago is as l.a. as the hollywood sign — and a tad tastier. the landmark restaurant is where puck made great food fun again.originally on sunset and now in beverly hills, spago is synonymous with creative, attentive and amazing dining.“at the original spago on the sunset strip, [puck] created what later became known as casual fine dining, a movement that 35 years later still dominates the restaurant world,” wrote times restaurant reviewer jonathan gold.and thus, a nationwide food craze was born.for food lovers, the menu itself is an adventure. portions are generous, and the service is perfe

east hampton changes outdoor dining proposal after complaints


concerns raised by restaurant owners have led east hampton town officials to temper proposed changes to regulations governing outdoor dining.a group of restaurant owners and operators said the changes would have prohibited their ability to have outdoor waiting areas and would have hurt revenues.most populartown supervisor larry cantwell said the proposed changes seek to clarify existing codes about the number of seats and tables permitted outside restaurants. but one line in the law — about how the amendment applies to waiting areas, bars and entertainment — has been “misunderstood,” prompting the board to delete it. “we understand it’s created an issue in the community,” cantwell said. “we’re going to do what we can to clarify that and move forward.” councilwoman sylvia overby, who sponso

how to add mac-like multi-touch gestures to ubuntu


though the mac operating system has many faults, it’s at the top of its game in a lot of respects. ease of use is the main place where apple excels above the rest. on a mac laptop a user can expect a wonderful, impressive touchpad experience due to how macos implements touchpad gestures.on ubuntu gestures are absent by default. this is a shame, as a lot of mac users tend to switch to ubuntu due to the fact that both operating systems share a similar design philosophy: simplicity and ease of use. fortunately, it is possible to get touchpad gestures working in the ubuntu operating system with some third party software.installationto get a mac-like touchpad in ubuntu, some software will need to be installed first. this software is known as touchegg. it is an old tool but one that still works
