CityBeat: Where did you eat your last great meal and what was it?
Armin: We go to bed at 7 or 7:30, so we don't go out much. I did have a wonderful Sunday brunch at Grand Finale.
Melanie: Armin cooks beautiful food for us. When we were on vacation he made angel hair pasta with marinara and topped it with sautéed chicken breast, salad with a herbed balsamic vinaigrette and strips of mozzarella.
CB: What's the most overrated American dessert?
Armin: Anything too big and too sweet. We just got back from Europe; there's a change away from the big desserts to really fine desserts -- smaller, more decadent.
Melanie: Most typical American bakery items are so sweet I can't taste anything but sugar. They're so sweet they hurt your teeth.
