The Main Course - by Paul Wein
"I've eaten at hundreds of restaurants throughout my life, but I've never had a dining experience like the one I had at Notaro Restaurant.
Specializing in authentic Tuscan cuisine, Notaro offers a type of food found nowhere else. That's because Angelo, the restaurant's owner, grew up with this wonderful cuisine his entire life. So his Tuscan tenure, combined with the experience of his chef, promise his customers a culinary compilation of cosmic proportions."
    Tamarind Restaurant, 10010 Madison Square
  41-43 E. 22nd Street - (Park Ave. South-Broadway) - New York, NY           
Owner Avtar Walia created a sophisticated, warm and harmonious setting for Tamarind in New York City's bustling Flatiron section to reflect the diverse foods of India's regions when he opened his trend-setting restaurant in January 2001. He selected the name Tamarind for his first solo restaurant venture to showcase the versatility of a beloved ingredient, one that is familiar and used extensively in the preparation of the subcontinent's cuisine.
Instead of concentrating on one of India's many cuisines, Mr. Walia offered a wide range of dishes featuring unique and seductive spices and unusual ingredients prepared by a team of expert, dedicated chefs. Tamarind's cool and elegant space with its vibrant modern look coupled with subtle traditional elements, was quickly embraced by New Yorkers and visitors from around the United States and countries abroad. It occupies 4,500 square feet in a former Woolworth company warehouse, with seating for 130 people.

Australian cuisine was heavily influenced by the first English settlers, who favored such staples as roasted cuts of meat, grilled steak and chops with vegetables. Despite an array of different influences in the last 200 years, much of this traditional British food has remained a mainstay of Australian cuisine, particularly in Australian pub fare such as meat pies and fish and chips.
