Ohhh.... Oysters!

 Thanks to high levels of zinc, an oyster dinner may boost your chance for a big O in the bedroom. Zinc is needed for testosterone production, and while women don't have as much of the hormone as men, it still has a huge effect on libido. And according to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, "Oysters also boost dopamine, a hormone which results in increased libido in both men and women." So slurp away!

Happy Anniversary To Wilma And Betty!

Wilma and Betty were created on Aug 23rd 2011 at Quatorze Bistro on East 79th Street.
At 1:51 we felt nothing.

Was it the Wine Or the Bedrock?

According to U.S.G.S. Geophysicist Julie Dutton  she said "A earthquake of this magnitude is rare for the East Coast but that the effects are felt widely in our region because quakes move more easily through the bedrock."      

Oh well... It must have been the wine!

WINE Of The Day! Brotherhood Winery Dry Riesling

A Crisp, dry and racy with grapefruit and pear scents, this Riesling exhibits the ripe fruit flavors and slightly mineral qualities of its fine European relatives. Dry enough to complement any seafood or a mild, 
nutty cheese, this is Riesling to match with dinner. $9.99
