Meat Shares in NYC

Also, if there's anywhere with just premium meat shares that could be split between maybe 5 people (like a bulk order), that would be something of interest as well.

Meat Shares in NYC

I'm looking into starting a meat share and possibly farm/veg share at my office (so potentially 15+ participants). Does anyone have experience with any CSAs or shares that deliver to offices (with a certain number of participants)? Looking mainly for beef, with an option for vegetables as well.

Where can I buy Liver Knishes?

My grandmother in Philly keeps asking me to find some for her, and I'm going to see her over the weekend, so I wanted to try and find a place that sells liver knishes here in NY, that I can freeze and give to her to reheat in the oven.

She doesn't want potato/spinach/etc., only liver.

Any places in Brooklyn (or Manhattan) that still make them?

Any bars with outdoor seating opened?

Looking for a bar with good happy hour that will be likely to have their outdoor seating opened for today and tomorrow's awesome weather. Any suggestions?

Looking for live music and inexpensive dinner

I work in manhattan and would like to find somewhere to go out for dinner one weeknight that has either live jazz or piano. I'm open to all types of cuisine, casual or classy. In terms of price range, I'm looking for entrees in the $12-18 range if that helps.

Bensonhurst Chinese Food

Depending on what you're looking for, I kind of like Silver Star Restaurant on 18th ave btw 62nd and 63rd. A lot of chinese restaurants in the area are more authentic, and cater towards the chinese population, but Silver Star is one of those old fashioned sit-down american chinese restaurants. They have booths and white tablecloths, and you get a pot of tea, and a bowl of crunch noodles and duck sauce and spicy mustard when you go in.

Are there any bars in Bensonhurst???

I moved to Bensonhurst a few months ago, and came to the realization that there don't seem to be any bars...at all. I'm around 18th ave in the 80's. Am I wrong on this? Any hidden gems I'm missing? Any search for 'bar' on yelp seems give sushi bars, or some kind of a lounge/hookah bar...

I know Bay Ridge is only a bus ride away, but it would be nice to have somewhere local

Looking for an inexpensive, special dinner for two in Brooklyn

For budget, i'd say $40 prix fixe is a splurge for me.

I'm coming from Bensonhurst near the D train, don't mind a transfer or two. I could drive too if its not subway-friendly.

Looking for an inexpensive, special dinner for two in Brooklyn

Its only about a week before my wedding, and I want to go out one night with my fiance to just take a breather from all the planning.

I'm looking for somewhere that is:

-not in Manhattan. Brooklyn would be great

-I don't know if i'm looking for romantic if that eliminates places, maybe just cozy/intimate/not loud

-really good food. We both eat almost any kind of food, though I'm not looking for asian/sushi or traditional italian. Tapas would be great, but I am always a fan of comfort food, modern mexican, etc.

-Inexpensive. For the perfect place i'll spend a bit more, but basically just something that young people on a budget can handle.

-A plus: good craft beers

Haven't been living in NY very long, so I haven't had a chance to find any go-to favorite spots.
This would be for next monday or tuesday night, btw.

Walking around Bensonhurst

I'm moving to Bensonhurst in a few weeks. Can anyone recommend places I should check out - best-of-the-best, etc.? Food, drink, all are welcome. I've got a week to really explore before starting a new job, and I'd love to check out what Bensonhurst has to offer within walking distance.
