What's it Like to Open a Gentrifying Restaurant?

"Can't it be something more community-focused where making money would be a byproduct?"

@DCdreams you are free to open any sort of establishment you choose.

A Sandwich a Day: Tuna Melt at the Palace Grill Sandwich Shop

Tuna melts are also my kryptonite in that even the thought of one makes me feel weak, sick and want to curl up in a ball on the floor. They are an abomination. Tuna sandwich or grilled cheese. Pick one.

What BannaaP said! SE where's the review?

Also only commies call them jimmies.

Meet She Wolf Bakery, the Bread Behind Roman's, Diner, and Marlow & Daughters

I've only had the sourdough regular. Its very good.

This shtick is so boring. Enough.

The Best Lobster Rolls in NYC

Luke's rolls are delicious I have no idea what @larush is talking about.

Why the Crowds Come for Brunch at Fort Greene's Walter's

Walter's is great but part of the reason for the crowds is the mediocrity of all the other brunches in the area. Roman's had a very good one but they stopped and now serve lunch early. Lulu and Po has a good one but they only serve it when the weather warms up. Every other place around serves the same average gloppy eggs benedict, french toast, etc.

Luke's is my favorite occasional lunch time splurge down in the Financial District.

If you don't you are dead inside.

Tales of the Blue Plate Special: Stories From New York's Short Order Cooks

How to Order Cider in a Restaurant or Bar

I live in NYC. I don't think that I have ever been to a bar with a dozen ciders. That said I don't seek cider out but I don't remember running into any long lists, 2 or 3 at most.

Mike Price's Favorite Restaurants in Dumbo

Atrium is great. La Bagel Delight sucks. Giant rolls with holes. Superfine is fun but its expensive mediocre food.

Veg-Friendly Small Plates at Martha in Fort Greene

I ate there recently. Brussels sprouts were good. The mushroom and scallop dish I had was kind of mediocre.

Don Antonio Brings World-Class Pizza to Atlanta

@fry There's a Don Antonio in midtown if you're a New Yorker.

Geoffrey and Margaret Zakarian's Favorite Midtown East Restaurants

It's actually No 7 Sub.

How to Find and Order Great Pizza in New York

Agreed that the dough is different. I didn't know about the sauce.

How to Find and Order Great Pizza in New York

Petty semantics but I had always thought that slices were identified as Sicilian when they are square and that it is the fresh mozzerala that makes it a grandma slice. There are quite a few places that serve Sicilian slices without fresh mozzerella.

Poll: Eggs on Pizza, Way or No Way?

Hell yes. Everything is better with a fried egg on top.

Coffee Maker History: The Moka Pot

I'm the only one in my house that drinks coffee so I usually use this or a French press. No its not espresso but it's good enough for me. I often drink it over ice.

An In-Depth Look at Andrew Tarlow's Restaurant Empire

Roman's is my favorite NYC restaurant. I eat there almost every week.

Would You Pay a $10 Fee for Delivery?

For some of those restaurants listed under Manhattan yes I would.

Sauced: Speculoos Spread

I really like speculous but I honestly have a hard time figuring what to eat it on. Its already cookie. In some ways its kind of redundant to put it on something else that is baked.

A Day in the Life: J. Kenji López-Alt, Chief Creative Officer

Not a fan of Fette Sau!?!?!?!

Where to Eat and Drink in Williamsburg When St. Anselm Quotes a 2-Hour Wait

Spuyten Duyvil is owned by the same folks. Yo can wait there and even bring your drink over when your table is ready.

Chuko's Vegetarian Ramen is Awesome

That place is great.

Paula Deen is pantsless

Paula Deen drops her trousers for the audience. Possibly NSFW and make sure you've already eaten.
