Gazala's - Excellent falafel on the UWS

Oddly, I and my friend ordered many dishes on our first trip to Galala's this past Friday evening, and the falafel was the only one I didn't enjoy-- way too much salt!

What you said about the water and bread people being the most personable of the restaurant employees-- I have found that this is often the case in various restaurants.

Neptune Room closed!

Too bad. I thought it was one of the most pleasant restaurants in the area, and the fish was wonderfully fresh.

Neptune Room closed!

Passed by the Neptune Room (Amsterdam & 84th/85th) and saw that it was closed. A note said that the kitchen was being renovated. Do any of you have inside information as to whether it will, in fact, reopen?

Upper West Side - Quiet Restaurant?

I found Dean's Pizza to be extremely noisy-- at least in the large space towards the back. If you can sit outside or near the bar you may be able to carry on a conversation.

NY Times - Tiffan Dabba story (Indian food delivery)

New York now has Tiffin Wallah, which intends to deliver and, later, expand the delivery area.
For now, I believe the goal is to cover midtown Manhattan.

I am sorry to say that, on a visit to Pompano Beach this week, I discovered that the Sunfish Grill, one of the Ft. Lauderdale area's best fish restaurants, has closed. The space has a "for rent" sign on it.
