Is MAE (Modern American Eatery) in Jersey City Closed????

MAE's website says that they are temporarily closed for renovations. Twitter says that they've permanently shut down & someone else changed the account info & won't let them post that on their own website or on Yelp. My call to the restaurant was forwarded to another number. Don't live close so can't drive by. Anyone know what's going on? Really enjoyed our meal there in August-a cute place. It would be a shame if it had to close.

Ketchup at Thrasher's in OC, Md?

Just back from Thrashers on the boardwalk. Their sign says, "No ketchup. No trays." All I saw was cider vinegar and some salt. :)

Tu Casa in Kew Gardens

The skirt steak & sweet plantains are also quite good. One order is enough for 2 to share.

Easter Sunday Brunch

Staying in the Warehouse District & trying to find a restaurant that will be open on Easter and serving brunch. Music would be a plus. Traveling with a fussy vegetarian, so someplace with pancakes, french toast or eggs would be optimul. Commander's Palace looks a little too upscale. Looking at Mojitos Rum Bar & Grill. Any other suggestions would be most welcome! Many thanks.

Tazzina's, a New Restaurant, Is Coming to Glendale

Any updates on this restaurant? The building (75-01 88th St) still has a FOR RENT sign & there hasn't been any noticeable activity. We could certainly use a good restaurant around here.

La Tavernetta Closed?

Janie,
Have not been to Michaels's new restaurant, Naple, but haven't heard good things or seen any great reviews. However if that chicken sandwich showed up on the menu it might tempt me to try the place!

La Tavernetta Closed?

Passing by La Tavernetta it looks barren & phone is no longer in service. Our go to place for take-out when it was on 88th St, never really seemed the same once it moved to Metropolitan Ave. Still I'll miss those chicken sandwiches with shallot vinaigrette.

Yerba Buena for Brunch?

Went to YB on LES in the summer. Had reservations & there was no wait. Our party of 5 liked everything from the fish tacos to the pan dulche and huevos rancheros (Could swear that I had skirt steak, but don't see it on the menu, oh well..) Drinks were great! (Maybe too great, that's why I don't remember what I had) Service was very accomodating. Just note that it is very tight, tables are really close together, but otherwise a very enjoyable experience!

Gianelli - what happened

I was curious why Giannino Trattoria closed as well. La Tavernetta did so well there because they offered a discount for take out & early bird, had a decent number of options on their menu & the food was very good. Giannino offered no discounts & prices seemed a little high and menu options appeared to be limited ( For example,no sandwiches.) We never got around to trying Giannino's, so I have no idea how the food was. It's a pity that they couldn't get it to work, because we could really use a place like the old Tavernetta in that location. (Tavernetta on Metro has apparently been sold to new owners & the food is no longer the same.)

Good food, casual dining near Wolf Road, Albany?

We have had an enjoyable meal at Buca di Beppo, 41 Wolf Road, Colonie NY. (I know, I know...it's a chain.) Portions are meant to be shared, food is good & it's a fun atmosphere. It might work for the unadventurous as there is spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parm & pizza. Here's a link:

We'll be ordering in some of her delicious food later today.
Enjoy your Sunday meal!

2nd Best on Metropolitan Avenue

UrbanCowGirl, I have also wondered why Tavernetta changed locations. The owner had only done a big renovation and obviously spent many bucks to do so. (Wonder if there were landlord/lease issues???) Maybe he just felt the business was expanding sufficiently enough to warrant a bigger locale. Anyhow, I hope they do well. (Funny- that Il Divo concert was playing the last 2 times I was there as well!) The old location on 88th St is showing activity, but no signs to tell what's coming. Hopefully we'll get another little gem...

Pampas Argentinas is on Metropolitan Ave in Forest Hills.

2nd Best on Metropolitan Avenue

Every time we drive past Casa de Elian it's been closed, including weekend evenings. (Too bad, cause they had great potential.) I love My Kitchen, Chef Galik has had some mighty tasty fish dishes lately. Have not tried Pampas Argentinas. Friends have enjoyed it, but I think that $29.50 for a grilled skirt steak is just way too much!

2nd Best on Metropolitan Avenue

The last few times that I've dined, been there early & it's usually my table of four or maybe another 1 or 2 tables of two. (Early on a Monday.) I'm sure that their rent is much more than it was on 88th St in Glendale. The price increase and location change have definitely affected business. (Along with the economy.) We don't take in from there as much because it's further away & more of a hassle to park & run in than when it was on 88th Street. For last week's visit, many specials weren't available & it was only 5 PM. (My chicken was a little tough, but I'm hoping it was just an off night.)

2nd Best on Metropolitan Avenue

New favorite dish is chicken breast paillard-butterflied chicken breast, pounded thin, grilled, then covered with a salad that has fresh mozzarella, avocado, mango. Mmmm... Prices have gone up, with specials making the biggest jump and desserts are now $7.95 They were running an early bird special of 20% off if you ordered before 6 PM weekdays (think that was the time) and still offer 20% off for take out. Oh and the French maid outfits have been gone for a while now :)

Taco Bite, Williamsburg

Love the food here & have brought several friends who agree. Everything is fresh, servers are sweet, margaritas are strong, atmosphere is cozy, prices are very reasonable. This is a family run establishment & they are trying hard to make it work. Recommend the guacamole, shrimp burrito, chicken enchiladas and los alambrados, (a Mexican kebob of chicken, steak or shrimp.) The fried ice cream is a treat as is the ice cream served with cinnamon & honey taco chips. I love De Mole in Sunnyside, but Taco Bite is now my "go to" Mexican restaurant. (It is a 20 minute ride down Metropolitan Ave from Glendale, Queens to Williamsburgh, Brooklyn.) Give them a try & let me know what you think.
