The New Amsterdam event should read P&H Soda, not P&H Spoon...
P&H Soda Co. is going to start doing vanilla egg creams with their Cream Soda Syrup! Looking forward to that and the Lemon Sugar crepe from Bar Suzette.
The UnFancy Food Show at The Bell House!
Greenpoint Food Market!
I would love to see my husband, Anton Nocito, featured in Edible Queens! He produces small batches of soda syrup from locally sourced produce, herbs and organic sugar. He was featured in the NYT Style section's blog just last week:
Don't forget the Greenpoint Food Market!

Don't forget about the Greenpoint Food Market! There's a full house this weekend!
@NYminknit if you associate great food with a high price tag you're probably not a "foodie" in the first place.
BTW, I despise the word "foodie."
And I agree, let's here some of the other options out there!
Best Pumpkin whoopie pie: Baked in Red Hook
Tried One Girl Cookies and was beyond disappointed. Overbaked or stale. Decide for yourself.
Greenpoint Food Market! It's indoors, perfect for this wintry weather we've been having.
Thank you Robyn! Keep up all of your great work! Love SE!
Nothing about the Greenpoint Food Market?
The pumpkin whoopie pies from Baked blow One Girl's out of the water. Not impressed with them at all! One Girl's chocolate whoopie pie was even worse. I still can't figure out if it was over cooked or just stale.
My favorites can be found at Baked in Red Hook. The ones I had from One Girl Cookies were dreadful. They shouldn't have been serving them. I still can't figure out if they were stale or just way overbaked.
Ugh is right! Welcome to McHattan!
I love Saveur for ideas and destination eating. I recently got a subscription on Ebay for 3 years/$18. Search under "magazine gift certificate". I had my first issue in about 5 weeks.
Nalega, I so miss Ratners! I know in the end the food and service had slipped tremendously but it was still better than nothing.
As a kid we used to go for dinner with my parents and grandparents. And my dad would sometimes bring home their blintzes, pierogen, potato soup and onion rolls. My mother would fry everything up and we would feast!
Have you read Gastropolis Edited by Annie Hauck-Lawson and Jonathan Deutsch? Highly recommend!
Ed, I completely agree! While I prefer a fresh, untoasted bagel, a bialy is so much better toasted and the only way I'll eat one. My husband and I recently had this discussion as I toasted the last Kossar's bialy I had in the freezer.
I also prefer A Salt and Battery to Chip Shop. In fact the last time I dined at Chip Shop will most likely be my last time. It's a shame really because I enjoy the atmosphere of the Atlantic Avenue location. The food just isn't up to snuff.
Keep in mind that at A Salt and Battery you order at the register and then hope there's some space at the counter to either perch yourself on a stool or stand to eat your fish and chips.
