where can I buy pizza dough in manhattan?

Thanks everyone! I didn't realize it was so readily available. I think I might have thought it was still the 90's!

birthday dinner for a healthy almost-omnivore (no fish)

Thank you all for the suggestions! I think I'm going to make this pork in milk from inmamaskitchen.com, with a salad of arugula, peaches(if I can find them, maybe some other fruit), walnuts and red onion, and roast asparagus with parmesan. Dessert will be a parfait made of the vegan chocolate pudding from WF, blackberry sorbet, fresh whipped cream, fresh berries and crushed hazelnuts.

I'm assuming I can get pizza dough at Eataly, but does anyone have a recommendation for the best pizza dough?

I'm not sure if he likes lamb. I love it but I think I remember him hating it. Or was that someone else? Ugh.

That's a great plan! He's made whole roast chicken for me several times, though. I love the rest of the menu and might work around that!

I'm cooking for a friend who is an omnivore, but doesn't eat fish or shellfish. He's a healthy eater and doesn't like real heavy food, but it's his birthday so I'd like to make something a little festive. I'm leaning towards vegetarian, but would also be up for making chicken or pork. The catch is that I'll only have about two and a half hours to cook, and no time in advance to prep. Any suggestions?

You're so reliably generous with your suggestions! Thank you!

what's good around 47th and 2nd?

Oh perfect! I've been to Salvation Taco and found it delicious... that cauliflower taco! It's dinner with a friend who lives in Sweden and I see very rarely... so the rooftop would be amazing, but the hotel lobby might be a little chaotic. I'll run that by her and Sip Sak (I've never been, looks great and like you don't need a reservation) and which she prefers. Thanks so much!

That looks really delicious! I'm uncomfortable with limiting what people can order, but I'll remember this for when I'm a bit more flush!

Wow , that does look interesting!

This looks delicate and lovely. Just in time for spring!

I think she wants to stay in the neighborhood, so maybe 10-15 blocks north or south, 4 or 5 blocks west? But if there's something just outside the parameter that's great, I don't want to miss it.

I'm cooking dinner for a friend's birthday, but going to her apartment. I won't be arriving until 8pm, and she has a tiny and not very equipped kitchen, so I'd like to make as much in advance as possible so that we can eat earlier than 9:30 and I'm not struggling with the lack of everything in the kitchen. Any suggestions for food I can make at home and easily heat up later would be appreciated. She's vegan and doesn't like onions in any form.

I'm meeting a friend at her parents home at 47th and 2nd and then heading out for dinner in the area. I'm hoping for entrees in the $20 range. I'm not sure how adventurous she is as far as taste goes. I myself am open to all cuisines, but am very picky about quality. What's good in the area? Thanks!

Do you have a real slam dunk, crowd pleasing vegetarian pasta recipe? Please share!

Private Room for 40th Birthday - Galatoies, CP, or August?

I recently made my first trip to NoLa and picked Galatiore's for my old time NoLa experience. It was easily the worst meal I've had in years. I was shocked by how bad it was. Just salty and buttery and lacking any appeal. It was the only bad meal I had on the trip. I was so disappointed.

What to get at Gallatoire's and where to get crawfish

Thanks, but darn, I'm only here until Thursday!

I'm in NoLa for a few days. Going to Galatoire's for Tuesday night dinner and would love ordering suggestions. Also- where can I get crawfish? I've been told to get invited to someone's house. I wish that would happen, but if it doesn't, where should I go? Many thanks!

Ha, I'll see how the oyster suggestion goes over!

Thanks for the suggestions! If anyone has ideas about going to some places to get traditional local food, that would be great! I realize that might be harder to do vegan, though.

traveling with a vegan

Hello New Orleans hounds! I'm traveling to your neck of the woods from NYC. I'm so excited to finally make a trip to New Orleans! I'm an ethical omnivore, but my girlfriend is vegan. I'd welcome any recommendations about how to make this work and where to go. We're staying in Bywater and will be there for 6 days in the first week of March. Thanks in advance for your help!

Adventures in loving a vegan- help me plan meals

Looks great, thank you!

Adventures in loving a vegan- help me plan meals

I'm drooling! I've always loved the lentil walnut pate at Angelika's Kitchen but never thought to make it. This seems like a great one to have on hand for parties, too.

Thanks for the well wishes!

These all look fantastic and you make me realize that I'm being a little fussy about it all. I have an idea that a meal needs to be a main and two sides. I like the way that feels like more of an event. But these all look hearty and delicious on their own. I'm excited about cooking with tempeh!

For the record… I wound up making a pretty great meal. Brown rice cooked with a little salt, a little coconut oil and unsweetened shredded coconut, freshly cooked chickpeas with onion, garlic, red pepper flakes and kale with lemon zest and juice, and a salad of pomegranate, radish, avocado, orange and mint. She loved it all!

Adventures in loving a vegan- help me plan meals

I've fallen head over heels for a vegan! I'd like to start planning meals that I can make for her so that every time I'm not scrambling to put the pieces together. I have lots of ideas, but my eagerness is getting the best of me and making me a bit indecisive.

I'm making dinner for her tomorrow night. I've been contemplating making a Moroccan tagine with chickpeas, carrots, cauliflower and kabocha squash, but I don't know what to serve as a side, other than couscous. Possibly some sort of sautéed green? I was also contemplating these Deborah Madison wine glazed lentils:

Or maybe a braised cabbage with chestnuts. (Thanks for the initial suggestion, Trockwood.

)

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank you!

Oh, good! The tempeh sounds like a nice addition to make it a one dish meal!

Yes, that seems like a good bet!

This looks delicious and deeply flavorful. It reminds me that I had something similar at a party a few years ago. It was braised red cabbage with pears, chestnuts and juniper berries. I tried to recreate it, but the juniper berries I got must have been lesser quality, because they didn't soften as the ones had in the dish I had at the party. Maybe time to hunt down high quality junior berries and try again!

Just a day or so past drinkable… alas.
