Al Di La - Whats Good These Days

Ziggy sounds like your friends are Bay Ridge diners. I have friends who only eat white meat chicken - it's maddening.

You can still get the Charlotte Russe if you really want one but you have to go to Holterman's Bakery on Staten Island.

Yes the pizza place on 5th and Carroll. Our Sunday night spot for pizza. My cousin's band also used to rehearse in their basement. Lots of nice memories you brought back for me bob96.

There was also a butcher and a pastry shop on 4th Avenue between Union and President Street. Your comment about the sawdust and the stools reminded me of it. My mother used to say we're going to "Tony the butcher". Also on Union Street between off Columbia was Cioffi's Pastry shop, another family favorite.

Source in Brooklyn for italian plum tomatoes for canning

When I lived in the area I used to go here but haven't been there in a long time. The owners were very nice old time Italians. You might want to call them.

I know what you mean. My father used to sell them from a horse and wagon. In the 70's he got modern and sold them from a truck. If you pass by the trucks that sell the sugar cane they might be able to point you in the right direction. I pass one when I walk my dog. I will ask them later tonight and get back to you if I get any info.

Unheralded Brooklyn Restaurants

This is timely because we will be eating at Okeanos for the first time tomorrow evening for a birthday celebration. We really like Polonica in Bay Ridge. Delicious stick to your ribs Polish food. I would wait until the cold weather for that one though. Well worth a train ride.

Where can I get a strawberry shortcake?

I posted this in outer boroughs and I thought I'd given Manhattan a shot. Biscuit preferred but will do layer. Thank you.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds pies

I am sure I will get blasted but I think they are completely overrated. Du Jour has the best baked goods in that area in my opinion. That said, I love their salted caramel apple.

Strawberry shortcake I want it

Hi , thank you. The biscuit type preferred. But will also go for the layer cake.

Strawberry shortcake I want it

This is a big splurge for me diet-wise so I want one that is worth it. Any suggestions? Will travel. Thank you.

Sahadi's vs. Trader Joe's: bulk prices

If they were selling out to the mass market concept they would be open on Sunday. Perhaps they are attending Catholic mass.

Rehearsal dinner for 20 in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill?

I would try an old school Italian restaurant in Carroll Gardens like Red Rose on Smith Street. It would be appropriate for price and accommodating to people in their 70's.

Nino's in Bay Ridge. Their sauce is great.

Bostonians stayting in Brooklyn, need advice

Hill Country BBQ is right near where you are staying and across from that is the Shake Shack. These are not ethnic but in a pinch you might enjoy going for a lunch or a snack.

Try to find a Bay Ridge or Bensonhurst community posting board. You most likely will get a response there.

Low-key pub with great burgers and beer

I don't know about any more but at one time Fanelli's fit the bill. It's been a long time for me.
