Clean Plate Charlie Night at PL8; Win Ann Burrell's Cook Like a Rock Star
The cucumber martini at PL8
We're doing a little housekeeping on the blog with a one-two punch. The first is a reminder to mark your calendar for October 6, Clean Plate Charlie Night at PL8, during which diners at the restaurant between 6 and 9 p.m. can weigh in on menu items to help shape the final cut.
customers will receive ballots that allow each patron to provide feedback on pluses, minuses, and in-betweens for the newly revamped restaurant.This isn't a limited-seating, communal-table event. It's available to all diners who attend the restaurant during designated hours.
And two, for those of you looking for free stuff, we've got a copy of the new Ann Burrell cookbook, Cook Like a Rock Star. Burrell is host of Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef and cohost of a new show with Bobby Flay, Worst Cooks in America, for which she recently held auditions in Miami.
Readers who'd like a copy of the book, the question is this: In the comments, tell us two common mistakes of the inexperienced cook. Be clever. And be sure to include your email address. The winner will be chosen Friday morning.
