Open Thread: What to Eat in New York When It's Too Damn Hot To Eat?

On the upper west side I go to Fairway Cafe (located on the 2nd floor of Fairway) on 74th and Broadway offers a lovely "make your own" salad. Offering the customer to choose 4 sides from a variety of dishes such as cous cous, roasted asparagus, salmon, and many others. Also, zabars sells excellent andalusian gazpacho thats refreshing, garlicky, and not heavy in terms of tomato broth.

Must-visit vegetarian spots in NYC

V-Note on the Upper East Side: Vegan, Gluten Free. Great dishes.
Quintessence in the East Village: Great raw food, laid back vibe.
Le Verdure in the Flatiron District ( in eataly): Really tasty vegetarian.

Staff Picks: Do You Prefer Chocolate Chip or Oatmeal Raisin Cookies?

Chocolate chip. However, I make one exception. The Oatmeal Raisin Cookie at Levain Bakery (in NYC) is comparable to their chocolate chip cookie. Both amazing.

UES dessert spots?

This place in little italy has a great St. Joseph Zeppole with ricotta cream filling. Arthur Avenue can be a tricky place to get to but this is my favorite bakery in that neck of the woods and they have a great Zeppole.

low-mid range restaurants for two girls in east village

Hi,
I often go on dinner dates with my friends at the same east village restaurants (eataly and momofuku noodle bar) and am looking to branch out.

If anyone can recommend some yummy and low-mid range restaurants for two girls to eat at in the east village, it would be greatly appreciated!

Cake Pops @ William Greenberg Jr. Desserts Bakery

So, I couldn't not share this. I recently stumbled into William Greenberg's craving a good quality dessert. While I had gone in with cookies in mind, the many cakes caught my eye. I then found a case containing zebra cake (yea, zebra cakes) sized cake pops. I usually associate cake pops as a kind of corny dessert but because I didn't want a big slice of cake and I know how good the quality of desserts are at William Greenbergs are,I bought their vanilla cake pop. It was a dense flavorful cake/icing mixture, almost the texture of cookie dough, covered in a light coating of white chocolate and white chocolate chips. It was amazing. Just thought I'd share just in case anyone else wanted to try them!

Gluten free beer

Hello everyone,
My boyfriend recently got diagnosed with celiac disease and is heartbroken he can't drink the beer he used to drink.Does anyone have any recommendations for some good gluten free beers?
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

NYC Dinner for 4 (2 Carnivors, 1 pescatarian,1 vegan)

Hello Serious Eaters,
Two friends are visiting from out of town in mid may and I am having trouble thinking of mid range places to go/ make reservations for dinner for 4. Sounds easy however party consists of :
two Carnivors
One pescatarian
And
One Vegan ( who, might I add, is deathly allergic to peanuts and cashews)

So far I come up with dirt candy. I know its easy to get great vegan food with many Asian cuisines but I don't know of any good places to impress the visitors off the top of my head.any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Snowgirl51

Niko's Mediterranean Grill & Bistro CLOSED

OK so a month or two ago my favorite upper west side Greek restaurant had a devastating "closed" sign on the door. I loved eating dinner at Nikos. I loved their grilled plank tuna with thinly cut and grilled slices of carrot zucchini and beets and potatoes and all the other accoutrements found on this dinner entree. I live in the east village but I also am on the upper west side a lot too. Does anyone know of a traditional Greek place in Manhattan with good fish?
sincerely,
Katie

Birthday Pasta

Hi Guys,
So my mom offers to take me out to eat or make me whatever I want for my birthday each year. I'm a pescatarian and I've been craving pasta, cheesy, creamy, a la vodka, macaroni and cheese, seafood filled I crave it all.

Do you any of you city dwellers know of a great place for rich (meat free) pasta in Manhattan?

new momofuku milk bar cake truffle flavors

Hey,
I walked past the window of the east village milk bar (which just moved from the south side to the north side of the street by the way) and noticed they had a new flavor cake truffle called strawberry lemon. Has anyone tried it? Thoughts?

best Szechuan-style fried shrimp dish in NYC

Hi,
I just moved to the east village from the upper west side and have been craving some good Szechuan style fried shrimp ever since I saw the episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate- with chopsticks on the food network and this guy mentioned the slippery shrimp from Yang Chow in LA. Anyone have a favorite orange shrimp or sweet and sour shrimp dish they would recommend in NYC?

Thanks!
