Dumb Question

Ok, so does anyone have a really good explanation as to why you aren't supposed to put hot water into a coffee pot?? I'm not certain I believe this, but several people tell me its "bad".

New Job

So work seems to be the topic du jour around here so I figure I'll throw in my work story. This is not stress related, this is to brag about how awesome I think my new restaurant is.

I started working at Seabar this week. For those of you who don't know this a contemporary sushi bar in Williamsville. I know, I know...its in the burbs. But this place is totally worth leaving the comforts of Buffalo to check out. I have eaten at every place that serves sushi in the greater Buffalo metro area shy of Shogun. This is by far the most creative menu, tasteful dining room and best service (I mean c'mon I work there) of the lot. The chef/owner of this place to used to run Tsunami. He is probably one of the finest chefs I have ever worked for, and most likely one of the best in Western NY. It's a relatively newer place, they only opened up last summer. I think this place is going to be very popular very soon.

The menu is small enough to be easily read through but extensive enough to keep you coming back. The wine list there isn't massive but all of the selections pair very well with the dishes on the menu. The sake list there is pretty good. They have plenty of different styles of sake to suite anyone and quite a few that can't be found anywhere else in a Buffalo restaurant.

Sorry if this post sounds like a plug for my current employer, but I guarantee you will be in food heaven if you eat there!

The Best Burger in Buffalo

Last night after work I ventured off to Hertel ave for the first time and went to a place called the Sterling Place Tavern. This place is has a decent beer selection. It's the first place I have found Pilsner Urquell on tap in Buffalo. They also have quite a few Great Lakes Brewery beers on tap. The bottles they had looked pretty good too.

They have a small menu, consisting of pretty typical bar food. But the reason you should go is the Burgers. They are pretty spectacular. I ordered it medium rare figuring I would probably get it over done as most places do. But what arrived was a very thick perfectly done burger. The only thing I was shocked by is they don't have bacon for them, so I had sauteed mushrooms instead.

The bartenders were great there, service was very good. They don't take plastic there but the prices are pretty reasonable so bring a twenty and that should get you a couple beers, a burger and take care of the tip.

So much going on

Wow, this has been a really good but very busy week. After searching for a job for several months I have finally landed a gig at a sushi bar in Williamsville. I'm not certain I want to name it but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Its one of the better places around Buffalo. Their menu looks pretty awesome and the owner seems like a real class act. I can't wait to serve sushi again. With that said I'm going to check out one of the other places in "Buffalo" tonight to see what they have to offer. I have heard that Wasabi is very good, and I can't wait to try it. I have been craving sushi lately.

So the girl I have been seeing hasn't run screaming yet so that is a good sign. It really feels good to be around her. I can't wait for some warmer weather so that we can get outside and do fun stuff. Not that I don't like the snow, but after this weekend I have just about filled my quota for the winter.

So tomorrow is a pretty big deal for me. I have my interview at UB with the Nuclear Medicine Tech Program people. I am a little bit nervous since I have kinda put most of my efforts into being accepted there. I guess if it doesn't work out I will find something else to do. But I really want to get in.

Even more good news during this post they finally plowed my street! I am getting tired out pushing people out and listening to tires spin at all hours of the night.

Things couldn't be better

The past few weeks I have been working up the courage to ask this woman out. So finally this weekend I made the decision to do it and she sort of beat me to the punch. We seem to have enough in common to be good together and enough different to keep it interesting. She is really into food and wine and I have to admit that is a bit of a turn on for me. There is something really sexy about women that eat bunny without apology. I'm hoping this will turn out to be more than just a few dates, but I guess I will have to wait and see. This is about the best I have felt since moving here. Maybe if I cook for her that will seal the deal to keep her around.
