Dear Reader,

With the coming months of summer, we can help you with the decision on where to enjoy barbecue restaurants near you.  It’s certainly more efficient than booking a culinary visit to one of the top 10 barbecue restaurants in the U.S. (although it is worthwhile to visit each and every one of them).

Do you want to create your very own backyard masterpieces? We recommend using Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce, available in stores nationwide. If that’s the case, be sure to also take a look at our top 10 summer beers and top 10 barbecue wines lists to make sure you are complementing what’s on the grill. For a little more assistance, browse our review of the Dinosaur Cookbook, which offers cooking tips and recipes (such as the Mutha Sauce excerpted from the book). Is simplicity your theme this summer? Have a look at the Burger Bar cookbook, also complete with a unique recipe.

If the plan is to stay at home with the kids over the next few months, consult our list of the best kid-friendly restaurants near you.  If it is large group you may want to utilize our feature to book a table and save the hassle of showing up and waiting around.

We have also have the health benefits of miracle fruit explained and other foods you may want to add to your diet to keep healthy.  Or you can simply follow esteemed restaurant writer John Mariani’s recommendation for Italian comfort food in Manhattan at Apiary.

On Novusvinum, our wine and spirits site, we provide numerous summer cocktail recipes and spirits features, such as the new organic vodka Filip, which is made from Italian winter wheat. In addition, there is a top 10 Rosés and a top 10 summer wines list that can help with this season’s entertaining.

On Qualiteas, our tea site, we provide a time-tested recipe for perfect iced tea, a review of organic Harney & Sons Bangkok Iced Tea and top tea tips that can save you time and energy.

There’s plenty more we have for you online, including July’s culinary events calendar, restaurant ratings, chocolates, gourmet foods, kitchenware, and our blog, but we also want to hear from you. Post a comment on our forum, or review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read. Also, don’t forget to visit us on and Twitter.

Enjoy the long Fourth of July weekend!
