Guinness in NYC: Is it all the same, or are there places that serve up better pints than others?

I second TRACKS at 34th and Penn Station. The customer volume virtually guarantees freshness. Trish just poured me a great pint. Liam and the gang all pull great pints. Don't miss the succulent oysters on the half shell.

grass-fed beef

Although I haven't personally checked it out yet, Buenos Aires Argentinean Restaurant and Bar in the East Village is getting very good reviews on their grass fed steaks.
Great posts. I second and recommend two superlative books, The Omnivore's
Dilemma by Michael Pollan and Righteous Porkchop by Nicolette Hahn-Niman ,an
environmental attorney that eventually married Mr.Niman. Anyone interested in
responsible, sustainable, healthy,organic, and delicious food, will find these
two books illuminating.
The Village Voice's Best of 2009 issue recently rated United Meats in Brooklyn
as the best grass fed butcher shop. Stay safe and Buon Appetito,Phil <-----<<<

Falafel

I've been chowing at Mamoun's for over 20 years. Part sentimental, reasonably priced, and infused with west village vibe, Mamoun's is an institution. Get a falafel/babaganoush combo pita sandwich. The alloy of unctuous baba and falafel for I think 5o cents or a dollar extra is yum. Carefully fried food (seafood,latkes,chicken etc) ,health factors notwithstanding, is supremely delicious ,as all the natural ,juicy goodness is sealed in. It's a shame you have to wonder about the 10W30 some carts and restaurants use. Hopefully, Jiffy Lube and KFC don't partner up! Stay safe and buon appetito, phil <------<<<

Five-borough dumpling tour

Fried Dumpling @ 106 Mosco Street. Mosco St. is a short, steep street between Mulberry and Mott St.'s in Chinatown, within view of the park, not far from Chatham square. The pork and chinese chive dumplings are handmade in the wee store ( my Mom's kitchen is bigger). They are fried on one side while they steam. On the counter with 4/5 stools is a watered down soy/vinegar spritz and hot sauce. I would rate them a 7 out of ten. But get this. For college students on a budget.(or anyone:) ) or anyone that would just like to try em, they are only 5 for a dollar cooked. The female owner has all the charm of an ornery steer with an impacted tooth. But atmosphere and hostess with mostess flair are not the place's strong points. Freshly made and quite tasty, thin cocooned dumplings at a terrific price are. Stay safe and bon appetit, phil <-----L<<<
