PEAR?! That's my favorite flavor of Yoplait, and now I don't have to feel guilty eating it because Yoplait sucks. ;] Sign me up.
A MySpace page? Whose idea was that? Genius I tell you!
This ISN'T an ad?
Feet. If you want any stock you are making to have that amazing mouth-feel, use feet. Chicken, cow, pork.
@nycParkie I second the notion! Late at night, just before I fall asleep, I imagine what life would be like if Xi'an opened a store on Ditmars. That's a world I'd like to live in.
The spicy miso ramen and the nagoya are my favorites there. The uni with parm is pretty amazing too. They are just another reason I love this neighborhood so much!
I can't tell you how much respect I have for this guy. He is really a cook's cook.
I love Bourdain, but I think "The Taste" is going to suck, bad.
"Lazer cut ice." Seriously? C'mon. Last time I tried that at home my cat ran into my ice cube so fast she knocked herself out cold.
Message: If you love hummus, move to Brooklyn.
Max, I really have to tell you how much I dig the fact you do so many Astoria-centric reviews. I honestly believe this is the best food neighborhood in the city and I look forward to your posts as more reason to brag about where I live. Keep it up man.
Do you have to trim the silver skin?
I second the full english. That sh(t could cure a broken leg.
The only advice I'd take from Marcus is how to charge rich people lots of money for crappy food in a cheap-rent neighborhood.
Will's effortless mix of highbrow and lowbrow is an inspiration to us all.
I totally agree @Lorenzo. I love these but I bet the amount in the picture would cost $15. That being said, I would love to try it!
How is it this place does't have a website yet?! I have been dying to try it for a few weeks, but haven't had the opportunity yet. My GF and I were just at Crescent and Vine last night. I'm sure this place stacks up quite well.
Shouldn't this post have "Sponsored" in the title somewhere?
$18 for a sunny side egg and "Other meat scraps?" No thanks.
More information is almost never a bad thing.
I don't think Guy knows that what sounds "kewl" to him doesn't always make for tasty food. "Tequila Turkey Fettucini?" Honestly, how could that taste good? I really enjoy Triple D, but Guys Big Bite is Horrendous.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't dashi contain Bonito?
Everything at Eataly is SUCH a ripoff! That skate costs $4/lb ay my local fishmonger in Astoria and is incredibly fresh and beautiful. I go for the scene, but I very rarely buy anything.
Also, if you happen to be at the Quays down the street at the tail end of one too many Guinness, this sandwich will set you right as rain.
