Grilling in Prospect Park

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out if it'd be ok to use one of those little smokey joe grills in prospect park (or any other nyc park that has grilling areas for that matter). i ask because the rules state that the grill needs to be raised at least 2 ft off the ground but the little smokeys are only about 1.5 ft. is it going to be a big deal with the parks service or is it something i can get away with?

i'm just trying to figure out how brooklyner without tons of storage space for a full size grill can get to grill in nyc parks without having to buy a full sized grill or get to the park at 9am to hold onto a grill. i just wanna grill, man!

thanks!

Turkish Ingredients

you can also usually find sucuk (the spicy sausage) at the arab grocers on atlantic avenue usually. they are usually not turkish brands, but close approximations. also, you can order from tulumba.com which is sort of like an amazon.com for turkish stuff in the us. they also have spices, etc.

as for cheese - that cheese that is fried, is practically the same as greek haloumi cheese. so if you can find that, it's a good substitute. also, if are looking for a good beyaz penir (white cheese - basically turkish feta), there's a brand that can be found usually called "Pinar" - it's a pretty big brand in turkey, but there beyaz penir is great - definitely what i am used to.

you've made me hungry with this question!

Roadside Food - I-91 in MA/VT

Hi there hounders,

A few friends and I are on a road trip up from NYC to a wedding in Northern VT and are looking for a good roadside place to stop off for lunch. Some place reasonable, good, convenient, etc. Any thoughts? If they have good pie, that's definitely a plus.

Thanks in advance!

Sushi around Union Square

sounds like you want a sit down joint, but i got to recommend chef & co's sushi. it's a catering company with a store front & some of the best values for lunch sushi in the area. last time i ordered a spider roll, the fried up the soft shell crab right then and there (meant i had to wait for it, but it was worth it). the price/value of the seaweed salad can't be beat.

The Crosby Connection of Lower Manhattan

I just started working across from City Hall, and am on the look out for good, cheap bites. I say something like the Crosby Connection because, it's cheap (for what you get), fast, fresh and filling. Is there anything like that in lower manhattan (ie city hall area & south) - it doesn't have to have sandwiches, just the value meeting goodness.

Also pluses for foods that aren't too heavy (it's good if i don't fall asleep at work after lunch).

thanks!
