    Boston Museum of Fine Arts New American Café

    It's art that dazzles

    little black dress One good thing about being at the Museum of Fine Arts not too often is getting lost. Which we do later but not before we eat. We're at the New American Café, named "one of the best museum restaurants" by Food & Wine in 2014, four years after it opened. On the museum's website they list the restaurants but not the menus. Not even for Bravo, where you spend a pack. Not even when they bring in a new chef, Brian Flagg. Your only clue is dollar signs: the Café has three, Bravo four. This is annoying. Those of us who write about food, and some professional eaters, have been known to read menus first. At home. You could call it an obsession. It's what we do: What will we have, what did you have? Okay, let's eat. Read the story here





    CORPORATE EDGE: solutions at work.


  • Let's do it. Yes, you can.

  • Work or home, organized. Clear out, clean out, donate, simplify. Like spring cleaning but year-round.

  • Reading books that tell you how to get organized doesn't fix much.

  • We've seen everything. We may stutter . . . but we get it done. Gone: stacks, cartons, bags, piles, dust. Gone.
    Wouldn't it be something to transform space from a liability to an asset? Turn a part-time office into a full-time conference room? Throw out invoices from the last century? Make cartons disappear? Give your shredder a workout? Have room for new clothes? New books? We ask questions. After all, we see your things from a different perspective. Rearrange? Recycle? Ditch? Move? Small stuff, you say? Anyway, if you'd like to calm a rising sea of paper or just get yourself and your office organized, we're here. By the hour or week at your place.

    GOODWILL IN BOSTON ON COMMONWEALTH AVENUE is recycling computers. It's Dell's Reconnect program for residential equipment. It's easy, convenient and responsible. You can drop off any brand of used gear at participating Goodwill stores. And it's free. The hardest part is rolling the two-wheeler. But I did it and you can too. According to Goodwill, they take: monitors, scanners, mice, printers, keyboards, laptop batteries, ink and toner cartridges, hard drives, speakers, cords and cables. Goodwill website

    CASE HISTORY: One of our fun gigs was a corporate makeover we did some years ago. We were titled project managers and nearly everyone, nearly, bought in. Departments were growing like mad and what had passed for organization when they were small needed a tune-up and they were smart enough to know it.

    The president, a dynamo and the smartest man I know, had the corner office. It was lovely even as it overlooked a parking lot. There was just one thing: piles of paper on the floor. His desk, as it turns out, was immaculate. I mean, what can you say? To myself I said all the drawers and filing furniture must be full. We talked for a while and he told me he is a visual worker: he knows what to do next if he can see it. Clearly, a stack of to-do folders or even one folder was not going to work. I got up and walked around to where he sat behind the desk. I apologized and opened a drawer. It was empty. Then another and another. Each one had nothing in it, not even the center where people usually stash pens and keys. The desk was empty.
