Buenos Aires E. Village

If your date loves meat, I guess this place can be romantic. They have the dark furniture and dimmed lights. But as Will4Food said, it's small. Who knows, mounds and mounds of great meat dishes to you might be more important than ambiance.

Where can I find specialty baking ingredients?

Kalustyan's has a wide range of bean flours and I remember seeing a gum powder (don't remember what kind) there recently.

Your Fresh Direct picks?

I agree. The thin crust pizzas are really good.

Birthday dim sum in Chinatown

Why don't you like Jing Fong? I'm not Chinese, so I'd like to know if it's just not authentic or there are problems I am missing.

Zen Palate - Union Sq. need advice

I find it hard to believe they don't take reservations...where does it say that? You should definitely call them to double check.

Pomegranate Molasses - Really Delicious!

hungry pangolin, I use pomegranate molasses on vanilla ice cream too. It reminds me of aged balsamic vinegar.

Pomegranate Molasses

YummySyrah, if you live in Manhattan, you can get it from Kaloustyan's. They have a web site too, so you can get it online. I like pomegranate molasses on vanilla ice cream. It reminds me of aged balsamic vinegar and ice cream, except pomegranate molasses doesn't cost as much.

Cacio e Pepe

at the restaurant Cacio e Pepe in the East Village, they toss it in a big wheel of cheese and then serve it table side. So simple, yet delicious!
