It was announced in November thatrepparttar Brooklyn Landmark restaurant “Lundy Brothers Restaurant” or commonly known as “Lundy’s Restaurant”, oncerepparttar 113182 largest restaurant inrepparttar 113183 United States, has changed ownership.

The former owners of Lundy’s Restaurant were a publicly traded company byrepparttar 113184 name of Tam Restaurants, Inc ( OTC:TAMR ). From reports and articles that were published, Tam Restaurants faced several downfalls one of which was Lundy’s Restaurant. The quality of food suffered at Lundy’s andrepparttar 113185 customers were driven away.

Withrepparttar 113186 new owners and operators in place, “The Players Club”, a family owned business that is run by Mrs. Afrodite Dimitroulakos, a veteran ofrepparttar 113187 restaurant industry,repparttar 113188 image of Lundy’s is about to change forrepparttar 113189 better.

Withrepparttar 113190 new Executive Chef Russell Guarneri whipping together magnificent cuisine, Lundy’s has received raves from both new customers and customers that were driven away byrepparttar 113191 former operators. The reputation that was acquired overrepparttar 113192 past few years was negative, Lundy’s used to be a tradition for Brooklynites since 1934, whenrepparttar 113193 doors were shut for 17 years and then reopened by Tam Restaurants, Inc ,repparttar 113194 customers came back. They were proud thatrepparttar 113195 world famous Brooklyn Landmark had opened it’s heavy doors once more.

Though it was halfrepparttar 113196 size, seating over 700 instead of 2,400, customers still recalledrepparttar 113197 restaurants glory when they witnessed people waiting in line aroundrepparttar 113198 corner just to sit and eat at this great restaurant.

Now under new ownership and management,repparttar 113199 family owned “Players Club” dba Lundy Brothers Restaurant has all intentions of bringing this glorious Brooklyn Landmark back to where it belongs.

Hosting A Wine Tasting Party

Written by Benjamin Bicais

As your love and knowledge of wine grows, it is inevitable that you will want to share your revelations with friends and family. Hosting a wine tasting party is a great way to do this.

When planning a wine tasting party, some obvious questions about parameters arise. How many people should you invite? What types and how many wines should you pour?

It is my opinion that an informal gathering should be kept to 12 people or less. This ensures that conversation and dialogue will be much more conducive than with a larger group.

Blind tasting isrepparttar most fun and informative. Wrapping bottles in bags will negate past preferences and prejudices. You may be surprised what you "like" without access torepparttar 113180 wine label.

Focus on a relatively specific style of wine. Within this framework, some variations should be considered. I recently hosted a wine tasting party where we tasted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.

To make it more interesting, we tasted two wines from Rutherford, (valley floor) two from Stags Leap, (east hills) and two from Mount Veeder (west hills). This was a pleasant and educational mix: a consistant varietal, but different styles from different regions. Another option is to tasterepparttar 113181 same varietal fromrepparttar 113182 same region, but in different price ranges.
