What Ethnic Cuisines Do You Want to See in NYC?

hope someone hears all the requests for hawaiian. i cannot understand how poke is not HUGE in NYC. i would like more ethiopian choices. i also would like to see laksa joints come near the proliferation levels of ramen joints. topper's biscuit world real southern biscuits.

15 Salads We Love in NYC

the kale salad at northern spy is good, but i think it's even better at lavagna (the best best) and ichabod's (very good)

Leftover Pizza + Waffle Iron = Delicious Crispy, Gooey, Cheese-Stuffed Snack

i get a similar effect from the frying pan method. start cheese side up, finish cheese side down. glorious burnt cheese!

Steakcraft: A Special Deal on Steak au Poivre at Restaurant Row's Le Rivage

very attentive and kind service. appetizers were quite good, steak was solid, desserts were nice, very reasonably priced wine list. a hilarious mix of the blue hairs and the blog generation and a few large and exuberant (loud) groups of people speaking in russian. i found it entertaining. we were there super early before most of the tables were filled up. the older gent at the next table nodded off complete with full on shake the walls snoring. i thought it was funny, but the poor waitress was mortified. she gently woke the guy up only to have him fall asleep less than 10 minutes later. i think that i especially enjoyed it because they were so super nice and also i am need a break from hipsters and trendy people. my fault for living in brooklyn, but still. anyway, thumbs up!

Ask the Critic: Birthday Cake Delivery in Manhattan

what's wrong with milk bar? cake truffles and crack pie are excellent, though some of the other offerings can be uneven.

Perla's Michael Toscano Wants You to Eat Whole Animals and Off-Cuts

looks delicious! i love that the off cuts seem organically integrated rather than being a pop of shock factor that seem to pop up in some other places. looking forward to trying it out.

Ask the Critic: Birthday Cake Delivery in Manhattan

above listed cakes are all amazing. since she's young, she might get a kick out of the momofuku "birthday cake" cake. they'll deliver to anywhere in manhattan though i think it's a hefty charge although cake itself isn't too bad (like $32).

how old is this article? did claude retire and move back to france like 3 years ago?

NYC's Best Dosas, Consecrated in a Flushing Temple

sounds wonderful! usually i hit up the paper dosas at chennai garden but these look spectacular! :)

Embracing the Dark Side of NYC Bread

orwashers russian loaf is the bizzness. and nordic bread with thin slice of cheese and cucumber, yum so good. they serve samples of it that way at the farmers market but cruelly won't sell sandwiches.

Trawling NYC for UK-Style Fish and Chips

agree with commenter that a salt and battery fish lacks seasoning. and i don't know what you did to get such crisp looking chips, but mine have always been mushy and underdone, which i had assumed was part of the whole british thing.

molly's is great, glad to see it on the list, though i'm surprised to hear about the portion size, they must have downsized bc it used to be huge. also if you sub onion rings for chips, heaven!

chip shop is the bomb. love love love. got into the habit of getting their chicken fingers instead of fish after trying them because they are off the wall good. so i make the other half order fish, snarf a piece of that and enjoy my chicken. everyone wins. haha

What to Expect at Madison Square Eats: Brisket Tacos, Bushwick Pizza, Beer, and More

mentally i was lamenting the usual suspects but then i saw that pork belly bun. holy cow, that needs to get. in. my. belly. now! the lobster pound lobster roll is indeed the bomb though for $16, i think i need to learn how to make those suckers at home. they are great but they are SMALL! is meuniere's still doing this one? love their pate with cornichon sanwich. mmmmmmmm

Ask the Critic: My Brooklyn 'Vacation,' a Guide for Manhattanites

i'd also like to gently remind people before they go off on older folks, try to imagine your mom or grams in the same situation and think how you'd want them to be treated. sometimes a little perspective is nice

Ask the Critic: My Brooklyn 'Vacation,' a Guide for Manhattanites

i'd like to say farm on adderley, even though they don't take reservations, sounds up your alley! also, as a long time brooklynite, we are never without at least 3 numbers for car services. if you want to do it without the hotel stay next time, rest assured that the host at any restaurant would be more than happy to call you a car service. they are pretty cheap too, maybe like $15-20 to take you into manhattan from most parts of brooklyn.

so many great places in brooklyn don't take reservations but if you like eating earlier, there's usually no wait before 6pm at most places.

Steakcraft: A Special Deal on Steak au Poivre at Restaurant Row's Le Rivage

SE giveth and SE taketh away. i emailed info@lerivage.com and it bounced. :(

Eggplant, Squash, and Cherry Tomato Hash With Baked Eggs

great! we will try this. we do a lot of meat hash, bc i can never finish steak or sandwiches so we've had some real winners with steak hash with leftover fries and a mind blower with leftover pastrami and brisket from katz's. it will be nice to mix it up with a veggie version! :)

Cook the Book: 'Mastering Fermentation'

deleted posts

Hi,

I was wondering what the policy is for deleting posts? I've posted a few times where it mysteriously disappears not too long afterwards. The latest example was the "where to pre-order thanksgiving pie" thread, and I suggested a bakery around the corner from me that I like very much. Just checked the thread to see other people's suggestions and *poof* my post is gone. I was wondering, it was pretty harmless so why would it be removed?

Thanks!

where to buy sauerkraut in south brooklyn

where can i buy sauerkraut in carroll gardens / cobble hill? as far as i know, we don't have any real delis, which would be my first thought. then i though trader joes maybe? but i don't think they have it according to their website. i thought maybe esposito's but not really. help! thanks!!!

Need a place for out of sight produce!

Hey all. I did a search but didn't come up with what I was looking for. Can people suggest where they get really tasty produce? Like if you were going to put together a fruit basket for a special occasion, where would you buy fruit?

Thanks!!!

Serious Sweets: Bourbon and Brittle Banana Cream Pie

Banana cream pie always brings to mind those revolving fridges at diners, stockpiled with chilled desserts gussied up with from-the-can whipped cream bouffants. I love bananas—and those lit-up iceboxes—but it has never once occurred to me to order banana cream pie. It always looks jiggly and a bit sad, especially next to the buxom double-crust apple pie and the luscious chocolate silk. It was time to give the banana cream pie some help. And yes, bourbon is very much involved. More
