Ave. D. Chicken

I haven't lived in NY in about 9 years. I used to work around alphabet city (do they still call it that?). There was a place on Ave. D. somewhere around 5th or 6th called "Ave. D Chicken" that had rotisserie chicken. You could get a side of tostones or fries, and they had this awesome aioli like side sauce. The chicken was crispy and had a slightly citrus coating.

Is it still there?
Does anyone else remember it, or was I TRIPPING BALLS!!1??

CHOW Root Beer

I used to go into the woods and get my own sassafras root. It grows like weeds in the NY state area.

Pork Tenderloin noob questions

It sounds like you are making a pork loin, and not a tenderloin. There's no way you would cook a tenderloin for 2 hours. I slow cooked a 7lb pork loin last week in my bbq pit. It took around 2.5 hours to get to around 155. Don't worry about trich. It's killed at 140, and there are about 12 cases per year in this country. Anway, I marinated it in balsamic vinegar and rosemary, among other things. It came out incredibly moist and tender.

5 can't miss picks

Thanks! Looks awesome!

5 can't miss picks

a) I don't want people top 5 restaurants.
b) I don't want to browse through everyone's profile.
Yes, I know... RTFM, do a search, etc... There is stuff there, but it's not exactly what I want. Jesus, I just noticed I spelled "sandwiches" wrong. Excuse me while I edit.

5 can't miss picks

there are some good links there, but maybe I should be more clear. I'm looking for people's personal favorites, and I'm not just looking for restaurants, eg. I'm from NYC, but have lived in Los Angeles for a few years:
LA 5:
Chile John's in Burbank
Mashti Malone persian ice cream in Hollywood
Noodle World in Alhambra
Philipe's by union station
Yuca taco stand in Los Feliz

NYC 5:
Wo Hop for chow fon on Mott st. (the downstairs one)
Peter Luger for steak in Williamsburg
La Caridad for cuban chinese on the upper west side
Chopsins for soup in greenwich village
Ave. D chicken for rotisserie chicken and tostones

For the NYC one, those are the places I almost always go when I go back to NYC (although I hear that chopsin's closed, booo).

I guess what I'm trying to say is, give me your personal favorite top 5 places for food (restaurants, junk food, sandwiches, ice cream, lawn clippings, etc..) that you love.

I need a cool place for my 40th Birthday

How about the beer garden at the New Otani in little tokyo?

Ok... Your friends are coming to town, but don't have much time. What are 5 places (for food, of course) that you can't let them miss??
