Who in NYC has the best Soup De Poisson? I've been jonesing something fierce lately...
With all the talk about this lately I was wondering- is a tasting menu kind of like when a band used to release an album of songs and you had to listen to them all- which gave the artist(s) a chance to grow and work through things that aren't hits, but are necessary for other hits to exist? Or is a al carte service just a sort of iTunes for restaurant dishes and chefs can't work through things and try new dishes because they are concerned no one will order them? What do you think?
As the weather turns, I as usual am jonesing for hard cider. You can normally find Magners or Strong Bow at most places, and I love City Swiggers, but I am looking for a bar-bar with some variety. So far my favorite cider is Crispin. Any suggestions? Anywhere is the 5 boros will do. Thanks!
I'm going to be spending the next week or so in Priest Lake ID and am taking care of the cooking while we are there. Any advice on whats in season? Anything I shouldn't miss in the area? I'm really psyched to try the local produce. Any help would be awesome. Also, and restaurant recco's would be great too. Thanks!
Where is the best place to lay a base layer in Manhattan before the parade? We are coming in from Queens early and my GF has to walk a dog on the UES before hand. I really don't want to sit down to something that was just thrown together because of what day it is....Any suggestions on places that get it right year round and have practice? This will be my first and I want it to be a good memory!!
My GF and I are pretty obsessed with Dan Dan Noodles and Szechuan food in general. We have had DDN at Wa Jeal, Szechuan Gourmet, Cafe China, Spicy and Tasty, Legend, and Land of Plenty and have decided that Wa Jeal has our favorite, not to mention they aren't afraid to give you what you ask for when you say you "Love it VERY spicy." Are there any other places we have missed? Who has your favorite Dan Dan?
P.S. We are pretty smitten with Wa Jeal. If you like Szechuan and haven't been, you need to go. Pretty much the only destination restaurant for us on the UES.
Any good recommendations for a late lunch/dinner today near the High Line?
I am heading there is a few days and will have been tasked with making Christmas dinner for my girlfriends family. I'm looking for a good spot to grab some quality meats such as a rack of pork. I know Portland is big on humanely raised animals. Any suggestions? Also, any ideas for dessert? I was thinking poached pears. What fruits are good in the NW this time of year? I really appreciate the help!
