Steve's Key Lime Pies

He made his mark at street festivals years ago. Still a delicious treat

Round out my Atlantic Ave run

I was born in the neighborhood too. I am happy that the original family still own Sahadi's. Brooklyn has changed, so now what? Looking for a place that existed 35 years ago is fruitless. I am grateful for what is still here because once those places are gone they're gone.

Brooklyn Blackout Cake-- does anyone make an authentic version?

This Brooklyn blackout got a best cake vote in Food and Wine. I was in there this weekend and noticed the write up. They have 2 shops in Brooklyn and 1 in Manhattan and sell it by the slice. http://www.littlecupcakebakeshop.com/

Anyone have a Picture of Hy Tulip Jewish Deli in Brooklyn 86th St?

Someone must have read this and put a post on a Remembering Brooklyn FB page requesting a photo.

If you are on Facebook there are many Brooklyn "way back when" pages. I think that is your best bet.

Recommendation Brooklyn (south) or Staten Island - 80th birthday party - 20 people

I agree with New Corner and am glad that you recommended it because if I did I think people would accuse me of working for them (I recommended them yesterday in another thread).

Small private party in Brooklyn?

New Corner is very reasonable and the food is good. Old time atmosphere just so you know in case you are looking for fancy.

18th Birthday Dinner

Check out the menu at Cebu on Bay Ridge for a price point for you dinner. I think it would be nice for a group your age. New Corner is good and probably in your price range but really old time crowd (people like me).

Best pizza in SI, Joe&Pats or Deninos

Thank you. No heat from me. I only ever had the clam pie from Lee's and it made me weak in a good way.

What about Lee's Tavern? Any thoughts on that place?

Great Italian in Dyker Heights

The one on 13th is not a sit down cafe. I cannot vouche for the one on 86 street because it has been years but there is a sit down area.

Chinese dinner (NOT dim sum) in Sunset Park - who's good these days?

I've been stuck on a Grand Sichuan in Bay Ridge. If I'm leaving my neighborhood for Chinese food I just go there.

Looking for a Bakery to Create Custom Designed Gingerbread "houses".

Try Ivy Bakery. They don't have a location but are working out of Root Hill in Gowanus. You can contact her at the website for the bakery

D'Amico gone?

I guess I was just listing these as lamenting what has gone that I miss. I am glad D'Amico's and Court Pastry are still there.

Where to shop other than Trader Joe's / Whole Foods...sterility vs. other [moved from Chains board]

Then don't go there.

Where to shop other than Trader Joe's / Whole Foods...sterility vs. other [moved from Chains board]

As someone with two jobs, food shopping trips are impossible. I shop at Fairway Red Hook every Friday, supplement with the green market on Saturday and cook 4 days worth of lunches and dinners on Sunday. That's quite enough.

Nino's Spinach Pie - Anything Like It Out There?

For some reason they either stopped making that spinach slice even when they were in the original location or they just never had it went I went there.

Nino's Spinach Pie - Anything Like It Out There?

Wow that looks delicious. This spinach slice was covered with a crust but was not a calzone. It was like yours only there would also be a crust on the top and when they sliced it, it was a triangle of crust and spinach in the middle.

Nino's Spinach Pie - Anything Like It Out There?

I remember these exactly the way you say but with lots of garlic too. Nothing like a Nino's spinach slice anywhere that I have ever seen again. But I will be monitoring this board in case someone knows of anywhere these can be obtained. A spinach calzone really doesn't even come close to old Nino's slice.

Great restaurants Beacon or Cold Springs

Thanks for the tip(s) :)
