We read that The Wicked Wolf closed last night and that a branch of the 2nd Avenue Deli will take it's place. Although we enjoyed The Wicked Wolf to a degree, we're actually looking forward to the deli. But from what we've read, it may be a while before we're queing up for pastrami a few blocks from home.
Last year Brian bought me a Dutch oven pot - a beautiful red enamel over cast iron behemoth too large to fit in any of the cabinets. I promptly went in search of recipes for it and over the winter I produced beef stews, lamb stews and any number of roasts.
