Persimmons in NYC (Manhattan)

Hi All,

A recipe I want to make calls for fuyu persimmons.

No idea where to go to find these.

Any suggestions (Manhattan only please)?

Thanks.

French patisserie shops

My favorite is Patisserie Claude in the West Village. They make the best pain au chocolat in my opinion :).

Hi Everyone,

Franzikaner is my favorite wheat beer. I have found it at the Trader Joes near me (72nd street) in the big bottles but was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere I could buy it closer to the Columbus Circle / Lincoln Square area? Thanks!

Ah Kathryn good to know!

I don't think I will be cheating on Bangkok Center with Kalustyan's anytime soon.

Thank you Kathryn, SGordan, and Jungman!

Kathryn you were right, Bangkok Center Grocery was an amazing one stop shop with very sweet staff that made sure I got the right fish sauce etc.

And it turned out deliciously!

In fact, I followed Bangkok Center Grocery's recipe http://www.bangkokcentergrocery.com/i...

Canned/tinned anchioves [moved from Manhattan board]

Thanks all for your help! Really appreciate. The crown pince ones ended up being delicious in this dish :)

I think they were yucky and subpar because i got food poisoning from them. They tasted fine at the time. So my yuck association is more due to the illness that followed.

True I may not like anchovies, I know I like boquerones because I had them in Spain but they are in vinegar so a bit different.

It's a risk I am willing to take nonetheless.

Just got a little glass jar of crown prince ones from whole foods packed in oil so we will see.

Thank you, but don't you have to debone them? Yuck :)

Canned/tinned anchioves [moved from Manhattan board]

Thanks I really love Despana beyond words but will likely end up at Whole Foods which is much closer to me.

Thank you!!

I probably should have clarified I live down the street from a Whole Foods so will probably end up going there.

Have either of you (kathryn or JungMann) gotten good ones there?

Canned/tinned anchioves [moved from Manhattan board]

Thank you! Are there any brands that they sell which you like specifically?

Hi All,

I am making Mark Bittman's pasta with anchovies & arugula tonight. Recipe here: dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/07/29/the-minimalist-pasta-with-anchovies-and-arugula/

Now the only anchovies I have had experience with are the yucky sub par ones they put in greek salad, so I was wondering if anyone had any advice on which to buy for this recipe.

Thanks!
