Timely article, as I am planning on buying a mandoline this weekend! One of my concerns is regarding the prongs on the safety grip - how often do those prongs hit the blade while you're slicing?
Blue Smoke! was tempted by Danji, tho...
Thanks for all the recs! Think I'll try either Duryea's or Westlake for lunch and either South Edison or Navy Beach for dinner...
Though it now looks like I'll have to wait for another weekend to head out there.
wow, SunnysideUp, that is a VERY impressive list. Thanks for your help! I've also tried Natural Tofu and loved it; definitely preferable to BCD on 32nd street in Manhattan.
Looks like aa1158 beat me to it -- I would definitely recommend looking into Hahm Ji Bach in Flushing/Murray Hill. They provide daikon disc wrappers and toasted bean powder with their meats, and this combo is definitely an food experience to check out.
chris, how do you choose the spots to check out? I'd like to recommend a restaurant in Murray Hill...
I know I'm late to the game, here, but can you provide a recipe for the "Olive Oil-Poached Salmon with Tarragon-Grapefruit Vinaigrette" you have in the slideshow (specifically that delicious-looking vinaigrette)?
I live in midtown manhattan and don't have a grill. I've tried cooking in an oven, but it's just not the same.
nesea - next time I'm near a grill, I'm definitely trying that recipe.
