Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Outer Borough Memories

I remember that place. I used to work on Staten Island, and we would get takeout from Lum Chin on special occasions.

I liked Plan Eat Thai, too. Your mention of it made me remember Oznot's Dish--great quirky brunch in Williamsburg before it became a total theme park.

How about Dogwood?

Yes--that was kind of sad. I remember when everyone loved to hate him, jealous of his success.

Wheated!!!

Good cocktails too. My favorite pizza is the Borough Park (I think that's it--I find the menu kind of confusing). Whatever they call it, it has arugula, blue cheese, mozzarella, and pineapple. I have taken to making it at home, adding some fresh corn.

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Outer Borough Memories

I remember fondly The New Prospect Cafe on Flatbush, one of the first in the area of its kind.

A vegetarian restaurant that had burritos and other things -- had a branch on Henry Street and also somewhere in Park Slope. I just liked the place, especially the one in the Heights. What was it called?

Great Shanghai in Sunset Park (my replacement for Little Shanghai in Chinatown, which had closed.)

Spicy Mina and Southern Spice in Queens.

Cino's on DeKalb. Red Sauce neighborhood place.

Helen's on Court Street. Ditto above.

Marble Arch questions (also Cambridge and Salisbury)

That sounds wonderful. We're going for Stonehenge, but figured we'd also see the cathedral and other Salisbury sights. Unfortunately, we're taking the train, not driving, so I don't think we'll be able to go anywhere in between. But thanks for the idea.

Wow. That sounds remarkably terrible (albeit amusing to read about). I will definitely avoid it!

Thanks. That sounds great. Even if it isn't warm enough to eat outside, we can buy some things to bring back. The cheddar sounds especially fabulous.

That sounds great. Is it obvious where it is once you're on Marylebone High Street? Thanks.

Hi, Gareth. I guess I was having a bad day. Sorry (in French) for misinterpreting, and many thanks for the advice!

Thank you. That is really helpful. I was just trying to get a sense of the neighborhood, and where people who live there like food tend to shop/eat—since we'll be staying there. But definitely do not intend to limit our eating to that area! Cannot wait to explore. Thanks again.

I just didn't understand the reply. Perhaps someone will enlighten me. I'm going to err on the side of charity and assume that no insult was intended; I've never understood those who patronize boards like this one then disparage people who attempt to use said boards for their intended purpose. Hard to imagine that a person couldn't come up with a better way of passing the time, particularly if one had the rare privilege of living in a thriving metropolis such as London.

Marble Arch questions (also Cambridge and Salisbury)

I'll be visiting London (from New York City) in a couple of weeks, and staying in the Marble Arch area (Seymour Place). I'm looking for ideas of places in the general area for inexpensive and casual (yet interesting) dinner and maybe breakfast. Also, good markets etc. for food shopping, as we will have a kitchen and enjoy cooking. I will be traveling with my husband and our 14-year-old son, who likes food.

Also, we will be in Cambridge, just touring around seeing the university, and Salisbury just for the day. Ideas for interesting lunch in both those places would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, everyone.

Discontinued at Trader Joe's: January 2014-June 2014 [old]

They had some crispy chocolate chip cookies that were good (kind of like Tate's--in fact we called them Fate's, for Fake Tate's). Haven't seen them in about 4-5 months. Not quite as good as Tate's, but cheaper.

Recommendation near convention center

Oh, that's great to hear! I made a reservation at Serpico, not knowing much about it, mainly because it was on some good-restaurant list and they had a table on Sunday night. So many places were booked (or closed). Thanks. On Saturday, maybe we'll try Rangoon or something like that that doesn't take/need reservations.
Thank you everyone.

Thanks--yes, I do mean the 25th and the 26th. I will check out sbarga.

Recommendation near convention center

Looking for recommendations for dinner for Saturday and Sunday night--2 weeks from now. Would like something funky, with interesting food, not too loud. There ought to be something a vegetarian can eat. We'll be in town from New York for a convention. Of course, we'll need to be able to get a reservation. I've looked at a couple of places, but no availability (for example, Zahav).
Thanks everyone.

Agree--have been twice and didn't enjoy much --especially given the price. I just don't understand the raves.

Sports bar/restaurant near 92nd Street Y

Does anyone know of a sports bar restaurant or burger place with good food near the 92nd St. Y? It needs to be a restaurant, not just a bar, because I'll be with teenagers.
Thanks...

West Bank Cafe vs. Marseille?

Thank you for your research! We will be there at brunch time -- around 12:30, so it could be a little quieter. During my own obsessive scrolling, I found some people complaining about noise at West Bank Cafe, but I have to assume that was at night. I don't understand why people like overly-loud restaurants. I will let you know where we wind up and what the sound level is like. (Depending on how we get there, I'll try to observe/listen to both places!)

West Bank Cafe vs. Marseille?

Trying to decide between these two places for pre-Signature Theater brunch tomorrow. I haven't been to either. Considerations: volume level (i.e. not too loud for conversation), good food, general cheeriness. Price too, but it looks like cost at the two places are almost identical. Any thoughts? Not a momentous decision either way, I know, but want to do the right thing.

Trader Joe's Yay/Nay Thread - August 2013 [old]

I didn't like the cornbread mix. It tasted like vanilla cake to me. Jiffy is 1/3 the price and much better.
