I would trade a breakfast at Gato Bizco any day over one at Radial, and maybe even over one at the ‘biscuit’. A row of approximately eight booths line one wall, and then you have counter seating in the middle with the cook stations against the other wall. It’s an awesomely small, dark space that seems to feel┬álike everyone who comes in is just waking up for the day. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t ever get busy. However, I think you can avoid anything near the wait you’ll find across the street.

We sat at the counter, right in front of the flat top skillet where they cook/prepare nearly all of the food. If you ever get the chance, sit here because you’re in for a show. Cooking is an art, and blah blah blah all that. What I find masterful and great are the line cooks or can prepare six or seven orders at once and keep going, ultimately multi-tasking better than any automaton could. Some people can’t handle one pan in their kitchen, try four pans with omlettes

Green tea is a simple type of tea (no added milk needed) made from exactly the same type of tea leaf, but left a bit more unprocessed with oxidation techniques. This leaves the tea with enhanced antioxidant properties, perfect for a detoxing lifestyle. For those wanting a super-packed detoxing tea, they need look no further than Matcha green tea; a fine green power made from the unrefined leaves, packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it is perfect for someone wanting to follow a healthier lifestyle.

For the mellower types, herbal teas like chamomile and jasmine can provide a calming oasis where you can lose yourself. Also working as a natural sleeping aid, chamomile can relax the body and mind as well as relieving stresses; perfect to relax after a long day in the office. On the other hand, refreshingly vibrant tea such as lemongrass and peppermint can rejuvenate and restore the body, for when we need the get up and go to carry on through the day.

More adventurous people might want to try more exotic teas such as chilli or oolong tea; also known as blue tea, this blend originated in the mountains of Taiwan.

Whilst Scottish Smoked Salmon is widely available around the world, you may be new to Scottish smoked venison or smoked duck. There are a wide variety of cheeses that you must try such as Cheddar from the Isle of Arran or Crowdie, a Scottish cream cheese. Pair these with oatcakes and relishes made in Perthshire. Other fantastic products include cold pressed rapeseed oil, taken from the fields of Scotland. This is a versatile ingredient and makes a great alternative to olive oil for cooking or dressings. Scallops from the West Coast or Arbroath Smokies from the East are also in the ‘must-sample’ category. For those with a sweet-tooth, you are spoiled for choice. Try shortbread or perhaps tablet (similar to fudge, but even sweeter!). Dundee Cakes, Bannocks and even locally made chocolates should be found and enjoyed. Raspberries, Strawberries and Gooseberries can be incorporated in to home-made desserts or devoured freshly picked. Accompany your meal with a choice of beverages – locally brewed ales, whiskies, liqueurs or perhaps fruit cordials – again, these can be purchased as gifts or souvenirs from your trip. Whatever your taste – meat-eater, pescetarian or vegetarian, you will find Scottish produce that you

Antioxidants are minerals, vitamins and other nutrients that protect and repair cells in the body. Antioxidant foods contain high quantities of antioxidant vitamins, like vitamins C and E and beta-carotene, as well as other antioxidant compounds, such as zinc and copper. Foods that are rich in antioxidants allow the body to fight against free radicals, which harm cells. The body of someone who consumes enough antioxidants will therefore be able to repair the damage caused to the cells, and this leads to various benefits.

The advantages of having a diet rich in antioxidant foods are plenty. Antioxidants are known mostly for boosting the immune system. They therefore help protect the body from infection, and can help avoid colds and flus and other common diseases. Studies have also shown that antioxidant foods may even help avoid heart disease and cancer, as well as certain age-related diseases. By protecting and repairing cells, antioxidants help prevent blindness, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s disease among many others.

Luckily for us, antioxidants can be found in many different foods, all of which are not

Pay Attention

Aim for the best results so your barbecue will be worth your while. That means paying attention to your cooking. You can still mingle around and chat with your friends and family but don’t let your meat burn. You need to adjust the flames for what’s on the grill, and you need to time things properly so your food comes off that grill tender and juicy, not like a Hockey Puck.

Don’t Trust the Gauge

Your fancy grill came with a thermometer. Don’t rely on it too much. In a closed grill it’s measuring the overall temperature, not the cooking temperature right on the grill, and in an open grill it’s not measuring anything at all. Use the age-old hand method.

Don’t Forget the Veggies!

Carnivores tend to salivate over the steaks and burgers on the grill, but a grill can make some amazing vegetable sides as well – don’t neglect them! Cut them thick, oil them and sprinkle kosher salt on them for a quick and easy – and delicious – vegetable celebration.

Don’t use a store-bought brush on your food – make

First of all, when people visit restaurants they don’t have to worry about cooking their own food. This may not be a big deal to people who love cooking or for those who have spare time to prepare their own food. However, let’s face it. There are many people who just don’t have the time to cook. They may work long hours and once they finally get home, the last thing on their mind is cooking. Then, there are those who may not work long hours, but their time is consumed by soccer games and school plays for their children. Once they actually get some free time, it’s too late to prepare an entire home cooked meal. So, they either warm up a television dinner for everyone or go out to the nearest fast food joint. Therefore, they rarely ever get the opportunity to enjoy a full, balanced meal.

That’s why restaurants are so important. These businesses hire chefs who prepare meals for the customers. So, they can just go in, order their food and be finished with their meal in an hour or less.

Another great thing about going out to eat is the waitressing

Empire Steak House is located right in the middle of all the action surrounded by Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall, it’s got a great location in midtown. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the manager who took us to our table. The decor in the restaurant has a typical steak house feel, it’s warm and inviting, and somewhat reminiscent of a 1930’s speakeasy.

Shortly after being seated, our server Burim, came over with menus and offered us the wine list. They have a nice selection of wines including a very reasonably priced wines by the glass section. We opted for the Pinot Noir (I believe it was from California) which is currently my favorite red wine, and I was not disappointed. It was light and fragrant with some berry notes, and paired very well with my steak.

The menu had a lot of the typical steak house options along with seafood and even some pasta selections. I decided to go with the Baked Clams as an appetizer and the New York Sirloin Steak. P got the French Onion Soup and the Ribeye. I really wanted to try the Porterhouse for Two (as
