New Years Eve 2010 in Key West was ushered in by the dropping of a ginormous red pump with a famed drag queen named Sushi inside it.  CNN always covers the shoe drop. I love the performers and just people watching.

Way Cool “Meridian Restaurant” in Winston-Salem North Carolina http://www.carnegierocks.com/2009/12/25/the-way-cool-meridian-restaurant-in-winston-salem-north-carolina/ http://www.carnegierocks.com/2009/12/25/the-way-cool-meridian-restaurant-in-winston-salem-north-carolina/#comments Fri, 25 Dec 2009 06:56:11 +0000 http://www.carnegierocks.com/?p=1295

Though I would hardly call myself a restaurant critic, by just being a New Yorker, I am a fussy food foodie. Everyone in New York is an expert on everything (just ask them) … all New Yorkers think that they are foodies. Anyway, I think that the Meridian Restaurant in Winston-Salem is delicious, especially the fried oysters and the venison osso buco. Yup, it’s top shelf, even by Manhattan standards.

Renovations of the old buildings downtown have been well done if you ask me. This place is great!

The architecture of the restaurant's space blends well with the old downtown buildings!

I like the lighting and the openness.

Four Seasons Hotel New York Christmas tree

Mom and I had dinner with our friends from Montreal, Joan and Luc, at the Four Seasons. I was happy because it was fun! No cat food here! There was foam in the fois gras (whatever that is), and the profiterole was yummy. The wait staff was really sweet; I wanted to eat them up.

Joël Robuchon's restaraunt is very fancy
