Reserve 2216: An Ever-Changing Menu of Upscale Southern Comfort Food

July 22, 2015 4:01 pm

Southern comfort food serves as the foundation of Chef Eric Reid's menu at Reserve 2216, but he's not afraid to take liberties with tradition. His versions of classic dishes put a gourmet twist on childhood favorites, and his team crafts new creations every day. The sample menu online will give you a rough idea of what Chef Eric might be working on today, but the only way to know for sure is to make the trip and check out his chalkboard menu.

It'll likely be filled with apps like wonton nachos topped with tuna, roasted red pepper aioli, and wasabi, as well as Brussels sprouts with peanuts, feta, and a balsamic dressing. When it comes to the main course, Chef Eric often serves his signature hot chicken. Yelp reviewers rave about the dish, a crunchy piece of fried chicken over a cornbread waffle, collard greens, and a pickle. You might also see shrimp and grits, a pork chop with roasted garlic-gorgonzola butter, or grilled culotte on the menu.

Expecting Last-Minute Guests? Here’s How to Speed-Clean Your Apartment!

July 15, 2015 4:02 pm

You were thrilled to hear that your friends were coming to town for a visit… but then they told you they would be there in an hour. When your apartment isn't exactly ready for visitors, you can follow these last-minute cleaning tips to tidy it up in no time at all.

  1. Keep all of your cleaning supplies in one place. That way you can simply pull out the bin or bucket in situations just like this one.
  2. Banish clutter. When it comes to making a room look clean, your guests are more likely to notice your dirty laundry on the floor than a bit of dust in the counter. Make one quick sweep of the apartment and clean up clutter as you go.
  3. Clean the bathroom. Your guests will likely use the bathroom before, say, your office, so be sure that all counters are clean, the toilet is scrubbed, and fresh linens are hung. Don't forget to restock the hand soap and toilet paper!
  4. Don’t get hung up on little things. Now is not the time to rearrange your shelves. Instead, dust only the visible surfaces, fluff up the pillows, and look at the room as a whole instead of focusing on individual details.
