East Wind Snack Shop - Windsor Terrace

Tried it. This place is very good. Really enjoyed the ribs, mixed vegetables, foie gras bao and they even served an amuse-bouche of crispy fried Chinese broccoli. Casual, friendly vibe.

Seeking Cantonese restaurant in NYC for banquet for 100

I did a banquet at Congee Bowery, think they only hold 70 in their big room.
Pacificana can wall off sections.

I can't believe the NY Times scooped ChowHound. Usually it's the other way around.
Anyone been?

KARAM in Bay Ridge

Karam Lebanese continues to nail it after all these years. Tried for the first time yesterday: a tongue sandwich, and grape leaves stuffed with rice and meat. Both amazing. 86th Street & 4th Ave.

Junior's

I believe the owners of Junior's decided to not sell and decided to keep it going. For good bagels try The Bagel Hole on 7th Ave & 12th in Park Slope.

Ollie and Ry - Park Slope

It's like an unassuming, self-service, gourmet diner. This morning I had eggs and potato hash with a small fruit salad. They also had, for later in the day, a huge pork shank over polenta.

These guys really know what they are doing. Have enjoyed excellent ratatouille and baked salmon, breakfast burrito, hot & sour soup, tuna fish, vanilla custard, corned beef hash with poached eggs.

Ollie and Ry - Park Slope

Excellent new place opened up in the former mediocre bagel shop on 5th Ave, bet. President & Carroll. Really good, interesting, unpretentious, reasonable. Had the pulled hoisin pork on ciabatta sandwich, served with homemade potato chips and pickle slices. Chinese chicken salad. Chicken tortilla soup. All first rate. Hope they thrive.

Gui Lin Mi Fen - Flushing

This place looks good. Taste of Guillin in Sunset Park serves their authentic style with crispy roast pig and beef tongue, I believe.

Great Cheese from Greene Grape

Had an excellent assortment of cheeses from Greene Grape in Fort Greene. I'm no cheese expert but Cara Warren the cheesemonger is super knowledgeable and helpful.

That's the place that has the stall in the food mall. Not great.

Ridiculously Downhill Alert: Damascus Bakery

For baklava try Cedars Bakery in Bay Ridge.

What's New in Fort Wayne?

Wondering if there are any good new places to check out. Especially interested in Burmese, BBQ, Soul, Amish….

Very Good News. Shayna's is still in business cooking great home made from scratch Trini food. Doubles run out early. On Church, one block east of Coney Island Ave.

Great Delivery Recommendations in Kensington/Ditmas Park

Is Shanya's the excellent Trini place closed? It's on the corner by Wheated. I drove by a few times and it was shuttered. The woman who owned it made great homemade rotis.
