I'm look for a good bakery in the Village / East Village area to get a nice, simple, moist chocolate birthday cake. If Pinisi was still around, I'd get their Chocolate on Fire cake. But their gone. Blackhound is a little too fancy, and not a big fan of Bruno's cakes. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I was wondering if any of you knew where I could find "Havana" brand alfajores (it comes from Argentina, not Cuba) in NYC? If not those, do you know of any places that have similar quality alfajores? The places I've tried in Queens based on past seriouseats NY posts are too much cookie, too little dulce de leche, and the cookie is too crunchy for my tastes. Thanks a lot.
Does anyone know where I can buy a good container of Oaxacan mole sauce in NYC? I'm interested in red / dark mole, not the green stuff. Thanks a lot.
Hello, some friends and are going from NYC to Amish Country and Hershey, PA on Saturday, and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for where to get lunch / brunch in the area. We are particularly interested in going to a good smorgasborg if there are any. Thanks.
I was wondering if any of you had recommendations on where to take a party of 10 (gulp), including kids, for either a BBQ or Mexican dinner in the Village area that isn't too pricey. I was thinking of Dallas Jones BBQ (I was also thinking of either Wildwood BBQ by Union Square or Bone Lick Park on Greenwich & 7th Aves but haven't been that impressed with either). I know this isn't the best area for either cuisines, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I'm looking for a tasty, low-key place to have dinner for 4 around the Cloisters. Mofongo / Dominican food is a definite plus. Any specific suggestions? Thanks a lot.
I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good, nice, sitdown Mexican restaurant for dinner in Manhattan to take a guest from far out of town (UAE). Was thinking of Rosa Mexicana or Crema, but not wedded to either. Any preferences / suggestions? Thanks.
Next week is Malaysian Restaurant Week and was wondering if you have any recommendations on which restaurant(s) to go to. Thanks a lot.
Sorry for the short notice, but need a place for lunch / brunch for 3 near the Met (5th Avenue and 82nd) tomorrow at Noon. Suggestions? Any cuisine is good.
Thinking of having dim sum in Flushing this weekend. I know there are lots of places, but any recommendations on which ones are good? Thanks a lot.
My wife and I are looking for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, and are trying to decide between Daniel and Veritas. Veritas's menu sounds very intriguing, but was wondering if this restaurant was still any good. Thanks a lot.
PS Any other restaurant recommendations similar to these would be greatly appreciated...
I was thinking of having a picnic in Van Cortland park and was wondering if there were any good take-out places nearby. Any suggestions on where to get good food in the area - any cuisine is fine with me.
I was wonder if anyone knew of any Mongolian BBQ or Szechuan Hot Pot places in the 5 boroughs or greater NYC area if necessary. Thanks.
I was wondering if any one knew of a good New England style (fried clams, scallops, boiled lobster, steamers, that sort of thing) seafood shack on the North Shore of Long Island? Would prefer something not particularly fancy, but any good seafood restaurants in that area would also be welcome. Lastly, any winery recommendations?
