Great pancakes in Brooklyn

I am a fan of the follow up so here goes. Went to Cafe Luluc this morning. World class pancakes! Worth every carb. Thanks everyone. The eggs florentine also out of this world. Not swimming in hollandaise all perfectly proportioned. My only regret, I didn't get a whole of pancakes for myself, we split x 3.

Where can I find churros in Brooklyn around Park Slope or anywhere

I don't take it as snark at all. Those vendors are not there all the time and in fact were not when the D train arrived at Pacific Street this afternoon as I was traveling home with the churros from La Churreria on Mulberry Street. I have packed and shipped them with the greatest of care knowing full well that they might not be in good shape. For insurance of yummy treats I made sure to pack lots of Easter candy from Jacques Torres. I spoil the kids. All I know is they better not ask for Cronuts, they will be out of luck. Thanks again everyone!

Thank you! I agree about the traveling but I just want him to know that I am paying attention to what he wants from the big city. They will be there in 1 day vis UPS.

My young nephew saw a show on the Food Network in which churros were featured and he wants them. They live way out in the country and it is his birthday and I want to UPS some to him. Does anyone know where I can get them? I know there is sometimes a lady selling them on the Pacific Street train station but I want something more definite than that.

Try Leske's in Bay Ridge. The Leske's Park Slope has closed down. Call first because they run out of things early.

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

If the prices are comparable I will always choose the local shop every single time.

I only indulge once or twice a year so I'd like to have some really great ones. Will go wherever public transportation goes. Thank you.

I have not been here but my aunts who live in the neighborhood and are Italian really like it here they have singled out the meatballs as being really good.

Brooklyn Chinese or Chinese-ish for 20th Anniversary dinner?

If you have a car this place in Bay Ridge sounds perfect for you. They are 15 minutes from Park Slope and have valet parking. If you don't have a car they are about an 8 block walk from the subway 95th street stop on R train. http://www.laiyuenbrooklyn.com/?page_...

I have the same complaint about the burnt ends at Fletchers. Mostly fat. However, my brother and husband love them.

Not much info here and since we can't all go to Texas for BBQ we'll have to make due with what we have in NY.

St. Patrick's Day fare Park Slope any suggestions?

Thank you for all the recommendations. This was a bit off the grid but we ended up at the Chip Shop. Delicious corned beef and a potato, cabbage and carrot bubble and squeak type of thing. Excellent.

Also a restaurant I never hear mentioned anywhere is Polonica which is on 7214 3rd Avenue. Really delicious Polish food. Perfect fare for this type of weather.

Good luck in Bay Ridge. I just moved away from there a couple of months ago. My favorite restaurant in BR is Elia (on the same block as ALC). Greek but with a different slant. King Felafel on 3rd and 75th is good for takeout. Most like Tanoreen but I like their appetizers better than their entrees. Burger Bistro is supposed to be great for burgers. O'Sullivan's has a good burger. Leske's for really good old time bakery sweets. If classic rock is your thing there are many places for live music. If not, there's the train. Ask away if you need more specific recommendations. I'd be happy to help.

Food shopping in Fort Greene?

Hi, we are contemplating a move to this lovely area but where does one do food shopping? We are currently Fairway shoppers and have a car but would be without a motor vehicle in Fort Greene. Thank you.

Got there at 6:30 on Saturday night and was told there would be a 2 hour wait; naturally we left.
The one thing I don't understand is that there was no actual line. Do they take you name and tell you to come back? How does that work?

Chuck E cheese alternative

Some people like the Aviator. It is in Brooklyn but way out near Floyd Bennet Field. I don't know where you are in Queens but it is not a far ride between the Brooklyn and Queens border. aviatorsports.com

Luz De Luna 4th Ave, new open.

I think the address you posted must be wrong because 9474 4th Avenue would be in Bay Ridge in the 90's and Bon Jovi is always inappropriate.
