thali - new indian downtown

I have eaten here twice, and find it to be a very good value and tasty food - would probably be a little repetitive if I went too often, but on the whole, for $8.00 it's the most food I've gotten in the vicinity, the food is nicely spiced. Great bargain, and good addition to the neighborhood.

Best almond croissants?

Anyone have any tips for GREAT almond croissants? You know, the kind that uses real almond paste and is very almondy? I have been disappointed with Premiere Moisson and Au Pain Dore, and even Patisserie Belge's version is not very almondy. Seems that the custard version is all the rage these days. If you know of any that are on the west side of downtown that would be particularly great, but would love to hear all recommendations.
