ok so how long do fresh cannolis last & how do i store? want to buy some up in da bronx this weekend to bring for turkey day--bad idea? good?
Fore Street or 555? I haven't been to either but heard they're both fabulous. It's for a special occasion (a big birthday) for a couple. One is a big carnivore (and appreciates larger portions rather than smaller nouveau plating style) and the other loves seafood (hence a weekend in Portland)..Have you been to either? Which do you prefer? Raves? Must-gets?? Thanks a million!
have been hearing about all these fancy pants chefs pickling watermelon. how do you do it? what do you serve it with? sounds wild and delicious!
Am going up to Montreal in a couple of weeks--would love a bunch of restaurant recommendations. It's been a few years since I've been & there's such a buzz about the place now! Funky cheap international food and traditional good French food recs too (not too expensive). Don't like ze poutine..Thanks very much!
Epicurious just ain't doing it for me--Anybody have a good recipe for a simple fennel salad? Alas I do not own a mandolin slicer...
Looking to send pops something special/food-related for Father's Day. Have seen past posts on sending cheese, pies, bagels etc from Ed..but I want to know about places that send especially delicious pork-related or dad-friendly (think big guy) foods. Thanks!
Looking for suggestions for NYC restaurants that have an extensive vegetarian friendly menu (but also serve carnivores). This is for a special graduation dinner for 6; half veg heads/half not. Not interested in vegetarian restos. Thanks!
I hear that Fleur de Sel is terrific for a prix fixe lunch--any suggestions there or any other great prix fixe places nearby? Budget is a concern..Thanks!
just got back from the wine shop at trader joe's--can anyone recommend any of the good ultra-cheap trader joe reserve section/label wines? i still can't seem to be able to get over my wine snob hurdle and buy a bottle of wine for under $7!! not a big fan of the several charles shaw bottles i've sampled either..
There was an article last summer in the Times about the amazing variety of Mexican, C. American, S. American & Caribbean food at the Red Hook ballfields in Brooklyn---Has anyone ever made it out there? Please share if so..I can't wait for warm weather to come to NYC to hit up the ballfields!!
I have tried many a time to cook a delicious eggplant dish and failed miserably. How the heck do I make that purple fella into something tasty? Any suggestions for simple, delicious eggplant preparations for the (very) time-pressed? Thanks!
I remember reading somewhere about Ed Levine's amazing discovery of a really fabulous prix fixe lunch at Del Posto--Ed if you're reading, or if any other community members recall--please do tell. How delicious and how affordable is it? I did a search on SE's site and couldn't find it. Thanks!
I'm tired of hiking downtown to Nicky's and Chinatown to get a bánh mì. Anybody know where I can find one on the UWS or anywhere uptown for that matter? Preferably a good one. Thanks!
Ok so there's only 1 Lebanese restaurant listed in Zagat's. And it's in Turtle Bay! Who knows of a great Lebanese hidden gem in NYC? And what should I order? Had the best lebanese food in Paris--am just itching to get to Beirut already..
So what would you say is the best deli in NYC? Good value is a bonus. I am partial to Rosario's on Vernon Blvd. in LIC (they cater the Sopranos cast at nearby Silver Cup) in terms of good value, big portions and delicious Italian-American subs.
Friday morning at work and I am living for the weekend's brunch. Where is the best bloody mary in nyc? I really like the one in Wmsburg, Bklyn at Teddy's on Berry.
What do you like to order? What's the best time to go? I know that place is pint sized--any good alternatives beside Clinton St. Baking?
