Tweed’s: Turn Of The Century Charm

first_imgA trip to Tweed’s, the steakhouse and buffalo bar in Riverhead, is a trip back in time. That’s not a cute euphemism, either. The building that houses the iconic Main Street restaurant, a brick façade with gas-lit lanterns, was erected in 1896 and has operated as the 14-room J.J. Sullivan Hotel ever since. Turn-of-the-century charm and details have been painstakingly restored to recall the space’s provenance. The hotel was originally built by Tammany Hall crony John J. Sullivan and became, necessarily, entrenched in American political history forever after.Known affectionately — or maybe not so affectionately — as the “Tammany Hall of the County Seat,” the restaurant and hotel have played host to many a political meal. If only the walls could talk. Above the restaurant, the rooms are small, though quaint and comfortable. The restaurant itself, outfitted with a mahogany bar from the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, boasts time period-appropriate paraphernalia: Victorian light fixtures, an oak fireplace mantel recovered from a South Carolina mansion, armchairs, and various other bespoke artifacts.Wooden chairs with leather seats. The stuffed head of the final bison ever shot by Theodore Roosevelt. Ancient photographs of downtown Riverhead. History opens up in the dining room here.New York City politicians (most notably, the Democratic politician “Boss” Tweed, known for his cronyism) frequented Tweed’s, giving it caché, though eventually, like much of Riverhead, the restaurant fell into disrepair. In the early 2000s, Tweed’s underwent a renovation, including a restoration of the façade.But these days, politics play nearly no role in the iconic restaurant, which is now known for its superlative steaks and, yes, bison. A sprawling menu covers most bases. Raw bar? Check. Classic steakhouse Caesar salad? Check. A play on shrimp cocktail? You guessed it. In addition to red meat, entrées include Long Island duck, roasted chicken, seared tuna, baked salmon, veal chops, and Portobello mushrooms.And then, of course, there are the steaks.The list of beef and bison feels nearly endless. There is a hanger steak, served with a mushroom-Cognac cream sauce, and a filet mignon with a tarragon demi-glace. A grilled New York strip comes with crispy leeks. Prime rib? It’s here. There is a beef burger, of course, with cheese, onions, mushrooms, and bacon. There’s also a bison burger, offered with the same accouterment.As for bison, there is plenty to enjoy, from the appetizer of bison carpaccio to the grilled bison filet to the bison T-bone steak. But the most impressive dish on the menu is the hulking grilled bison cowboy steak, a cut I have never before seen from this animal. It is a massive, impressive thing, arriving on the bone and with an ample helping of maître d’ butter. Bison is leaner than beef, and the steak benefits from the melting fat of the butter (which can feel, atop a beef rib eye, like overkill, if such a thing exists).If this feels like not-enough-bison for your particular taste, you can opt to purchase more to bring home. The restaurant sells bison hanger steaks, filets, cowboy steaks, T-bones, and chop meat for those eager to try their hands at bison on the backyard grill. If dessert at a steakhouse often feels like an afterthought, think twice about skipping it at Tweed’s, where the crème brûlée is ever delicate and trapped beneath a thick disk of caramelized sugar. All steakhouse meals should end, I think, with a piece of inappropriately caloric chocolate cake, and Tweed’s takes its seriously enough. What’s the harm in a piece of cake, anyway? You can always take the rest home — assuming there’s anything left to save. Sharelast_img read more

Walter Presents: Ride Upon the Storm season 2 preview – rousing stuff that’s exquisitely acted

first_imgI recall reviewing season 1 of Ride Upon The Storm (Herrens Veje in its native Danish) back in January 2019 and remarking that this isn’t a crime show at all. At the time, it was unusual for Walter Presents to offer us anything that didn’t involve a gruesome murder or twenty; but these days, WP have widened their net to incorporate more and more drama of all types and genres; including family dramas like this.If you want to avoid spoilers for Ride Upon the Storm, stop reading now.For Season 2 of RUTS, there are still no murders – not yet, at least – but there is more family intrigue for Johannes Krogh (the masterful Lars Mikkelsen) and his dysfunctional clan.Credit: Tine Harden / Walter PresentsIt’s 18 months since the death of August (Johannes’ son), who walked in front of a lorry in the Danish countryside at the end of Season 1. Christian (Johannes’ other son), who was with August that fateful day, is immersing himself in his new self-help book, trying to cope with the guilt of being unable to prevent August’s death. Johannes is coping with troubles of his own, as August’s church is on the verge of being sold to the Muslim community, causing discord and anger from some parishioners in Brovang – a view Johannes is not unsympathetic with and one which the tabloids are quick to promote and exploit for a good storyline. As he admits to colleagues, that church is all that he has left of his son and he doesn’t want it sold to anyone – be it Aldi or Allah.Johannes’ wife, Elisabeth – played sublimely by Eleonora Jørgensen, winner of two best actress awards at the Danish Film Awards – is undergoing therapy as a result of the breakdown of her marriage to Johannes. They’re still living together, but they’re no longer intimate; and she struggles to cope with his moods and temper, whilst still mourning the loss of her son.Credit: Tine Harden / Walter PresentsElsewhere, Emilie – August’s widow – has decided that their young child will not be baptised in church, but instead has chosen to have a non-religious naming ceremony; something that further distances her from her father-in-law.This is rousing stuff. It’s exquisitely acted throughout, particularly by Jørgensen and Mikkelsen. In addition, the characterisation is so beautifully rounded, it’s an absolute joy to watch. Take Johannes as an example – he’s a violent, dinosaur of a man, and yet when his daughter-in-law stops him from seeing his grandson, you cannot help but feel sorry for the man. The scriptwriting is top-drawer; and everything from the musical score to the camerawork are faultless too. It is proof that you don’t need flash and crash to create quality drama.Walter Presents: Ride Upon the Storm launches on Channel 4 at 11pm on 5th April and the boxset is available via All4 immediately after the transmission of first episode.last_img read more

mm-Wave Scanning Solution from R&S Helps Edinburgh Airport Win an Award

first_imgEdinburgh Airport along with Rohde & Schwarz has been awarded the Best Solution Provider award at the 2018 AOA Awards for improving passenger experience and security through the installation of new scanners. The AOA is the national organization for UK airports.Edinburgh Airport installed three R&S QPS200 scanners in its main search area in March 2018 following a successful pilot project. The scanners were an instant hit with passengers and staff, halved the time taken to complete a scan and doubled the clear scan rate. Staff particularly welcome the high clear rate and have confidence that if the scanner flags up a concern there is something there to find. Edinburgh Airport is in the process of upgrading to the newly introduced R&S QPS201, which is twice as fast and much smaller, and was Highly Commended in the Best Innovator category at the AOA Awards.The R&S QPS is a state-of-the-art millimeter-wave security scanner that automatically detects potentially dangerous items carried on the body or in clothing. The scanner can be used for airport security checks, security at public events with a high threat potential and access control at security-related facilitiesThe UK Department for Transport would eventually like 100% of passengers to be automatically scanned. Edinburgh Airport believes that, with Rohde & Schwarz’ help, the airport is well prepared for this requirement without extended times and queues.last_img read more
