Thanks for all the comments...unfortunately the weather must have scared off all the Mr. Softee trucks so we had to postpone the experience, maybe next weekend or after passover.....but keep the comments coming!

What Are Your Favorite Pork Ribs in New York?

Daisy May's BBQ

A Sandwich A Day: The Rat Pack from Lorimer Market

Didn't think it would be necessary as i thought people would understand what i meant, but allow me to amend my comment then. Foods should not really have the word "Rat" or "rat" stand alone in the name. However, when the three letters r-a-t are used in the name as noted in examples above, its fine. Again, its my opinion, no need to get all upset and double or triple your question marks in exasperation, sorry.

A Sandwich A Day: The Rat Pack from Lorimer Market

Sandwich looks great and sounds delicious, but it needs a new name. No food should really ever have the word "rat" in it, in my opinion.

A Sandwich a Day: Tortas in the Flatiron

Went today, review is spot on. Sandwich is quite tasty and filling and MESSY. Only problem is the chewy bits in the carnitas which really aren't that pleasant.

How to Make Barbecue Beef Brisket That Doesn't Suck

been wanting to attempt a bbq brisket for quite some time, but living in Manhattan all i have is an oven, no smoker or grill. I plan to buy the right kind of cut (a well marbled packers cut), apply a spice rub, let it sit overnight then at around 4 am get up and put it in the oven at 225 to 250 for about 11 hours...any thoughts on the process?

An Uncommon Apple Tart Featuring Goat Cheese and Rose

Is rose petal jam the same as rose hip jam?

Dinner Tonight: Eggs in Purgatory (Eggs Baked in Tomato Sauce)

to SkinnyFatty-
no judgment here, but i dont think this is dinner party fare...it is way beyond delicious, but kind of messy in that you want to be able to sop up all the sauce and egg with more bread, not something you would want your guests to have to do. Again just a personal opinion.

Best New York Steak From Non-Steakhouses?

Landmarc at the Time Warner Center or down in Tribeca has great steaks and the fries are fan-fugu-tastic. Also relatively reasonably priced.

Essentials: Guacamole

I like to keep it simple, just avocados, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper and a little cayenne to add some heat.

Father's Day Grilling: Homemade Beer Brats

No No No No No. the first step in making bratwurst no matter whether you make the brats from scratch or not, is always always open a can of beer. then you may start cooking. also you cook the brats in the beer and onions (also known as a beer hot tub), no butter. then you throw them on a hot grill to crisp up and get a nice grilled char on them. then you put them back in the beer hot tub for a few minutes on a low flame. then, eat to your hearts content. AND ABSOLUTELY NO KETCHUP!

What is Coco Fresh Tea & Juice?

Anyone know what the story is with Coco Fresh Tea & Juice coming to 38 Lexington Avenue at the corner of 24th and Lex? Work is going on inside and there are somewhat flimsy signs up, but a basic internet search yields nothing. The signs say something about it being Taiwanese.....

San Luigi (NYC) Relocation Rumors

Heard a rumor over the weekend that San Luigi, an Italian restaurant formerly located on Amsterdam and 75th Street has reopened or will be reopening at a different location on some street between Columbus and Central Park West in the high 60's or low 70's. Has anyone else heard this? Is it true?

butcher classes

Looking for a class on how to correctly butcher meat, poultry, fish etc...not necessarily knife skills classes, must be located in NYC.

Vitello Tonnato Recipe

I'm looking for a vitello tonnato recipe that involves cooking the veal tenderloin sous vide or the less fancy version of maybe even seasoning it then wrapping it in plastic wrap and cooking it in boiling water before chilling. Not sure where i may have seen or heard of this but could use some clarification.
