Berry & Elliot's getting a new identity


September 11, 1997|By Elizabeth Large | Elizabeth Large,SUN RESTAURANT CRITIC

Berry & Elliot's, the Hyatt Regency Hotel's luxury dining room, is closed for remodeling. When it reopens at the end of October or thereabouts, it will have a new name and a new concept (yet to be disclosed) as well as a new decor.

New York on a budget

New York may or may not have the best restaurants in America, but it certainly has some of the most expensive ones. The good news: It also has some of the best inexpensive ones. The problem is finding them if you're not a native.

Eric Asimov's newly published paperback "$25 and Under 1998" (HarperReference, $11.95) goes a long way to help. Asimov is an authority on the subject; he's written a budget gourmet column for the New York Times for the past five years. In his new book, he reviews more than 200 of the best places in the Big Apple to get three courses for under $25.

Second helping

Carrol's Creek in Annapolis became nationally known in 1995 when Bon Appetit named it one of the country's top waterfront restaurants. Now its cream of crab soup recipe has made the pages of the food magazine's September issue. Its publication was requested by an Illinois reader.
