Where do you recommend…?

Red Horse Cafe, Park Slope, Brooklyn

Living here in New York, we have our pick of top-notch restaurants when we feel like taking a break from the kitchen. Instead of settling for a ho-hum meal that I could make at home, I gravitate towards places that allow me to try new preparations. I often find myself with Friday-afternoon text messages and emails from friends asking for city recommendations.  Here is where I would take them…
