Mushrooms, green peppers, onions, Italian herbs, mozzarella, and a light drizzle of good olive oil.
Good coffee should be consumed like wine - unadulterated and often.
Is this bakery at all associated with the Parisi Bros. Bakery in Astoria?
Sauteed kale over rice pilaf. Hits the spot every time!
I have a 10" wide Wusthof chef's knife and I couldn't imagine cooking without. I actually bought if after taking the knife skills course at ICE after the instructor merely teased us with that knife and made us use the lame 6". Who's cooking now!
Black - coffee at it's purest.
There's no point in drinking great coffee if you can't actually taste the coffee.
Thank you!!! Very helpful :)
Awesome! Can you give a list with locations of the tacos you enjoyed?
Havarti with Dill, hands down
Gluten free bread! Without a breadmaker this can be a very time consuming task.
Corn, veggies, and shark filets grilled over aged oak. All paired with one of my mom's famous cocktails.
Great brunch spot! I have dreams about their date cake with toffee sauce.
For lunch and dinner I like Veselka, even spotted Jon Stewart there once: http://www.veselka.com/
For lunch in St. Marks there are some awesome dishes ($5/$6) at Xi'an Famous Foods. Love the Lamb Burger, Lamp noodles, cold skin noodles, and the cold buckwheat noodles. So good! So cheap! If it's nice out take a walk to the park.
Pizza, sandwiches, dumplings, pork buns, etc. If you just navigate this site a bit you'll find tons of suggestions.
@ Simon - it's not complicated, it's just interesting to get new ideas to make a trip less boring. I wouldn't have thought of the apricot and havarti sandwich mentioned above, but now I have it on my mind and may try it.
Though it's in Astoria, Cafe Triskell's crepes are really delicious. It's a cute little french restaurant, just a few blocks from the N/Q train.
Alright, the beef jerky might win out... since I never buy it. I'm thinking I'll forgo the coffee until I get there but I'd like something tasty to get me through the trip.
Anyone have a favorite juice/drink?
@joyyy - that sounds delish!
I was wondering whether I should bring coffee or not... I think a nap might be in order once on the bus (which will hopefully be quiet and empty). And I would like to avoid using the bus restroom, since they are always less than appealing. I'm thinking... a super fresh bagel with cream cheese, water, and some yogurt covered raisins. And then insist I'm greeted in Boston with a giant cup of coffee.
Thanks all!!! You're awesome!
These are great ideas! I think I'm leaning towards to food-tour idea. I might start out at Kyotofu for a cute brunch (I haven't been here yet), then make our way to Steve's in Brooklyn for Key Lime Pie (my favorite) but other then those 2 stops I'm not too sure yet... Maybe a stop at Urban Glass if they have a workshop... any ideas?
These are great ideas! My one obstacle is my non-meat eating partner. He'll do fish, but none of the land animals. Too bad too, I'd love to eat a whole pig... I mean share a whole pig. Yes, share....
@thesteveroller- I completely agree about the pickles. I went there thinking I'd get southern-style fried pickles and these little fried dough balls come out. The sweetness of the dough and the salty of the pickle just don't work, I was actually really turned off by these.
Thanks for the great ideas!
I like the idea of the tasting tour... hmm...
I have only had white truffle oil on french fries, and that was quite the luxury.
My family cookbook with recipes from the women in my family. From spaghetti sauce to our family apple pie, it's always open on my counter!
