Restaurants are looking for strategies to bring in diners during tough economic times, and this one is literal. If you live in the greater Boston area, Fleming's steakhouse will now pick you up at your house in a Mercedes Crossover and drive you home again after your meal.


With the weather getting nastier and cab fare getting scarcer, this could be an appealing option, sort of like the reverse of getting food delivered to your door. It's also great for those who like to liberally sample those big steakhouse reds.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
