Bulgarian restaurants in the Tristate region?

I think that what ultimately killed Bulgara's business was their truncated hours (from the get-go, they were a little strange with their choice of hours: first they semmed to have started with full Monday-Sunday hours, then were only open starting from 5 PM Monday-Sunday, then they lopped off the Monday-Wednesday openings and were only open Thurs-Sunday) and their not-too-friendly staff. I agree with you though, the food was excellent! Martin Peck

Bulgarian restaurants in the Tristate region?

Now that Bulgara restaurant in Long Island City has been converted into a German restaurant and Mehanata in Chinatown, NY is no longer a restaurant, are there any other Bulgarian restaurants in New York State or in New Jersey or Connecticut? And if not, does anyone know if the proprietors of Bulgara plan to move their business to another state outside the Tristate region? I really miss Bulgara's kyopolou, tarator, and kebapche already! Thanks! Martin Peck

Bulgarian restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area

Does anyone know of any Bulgarian restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area? I tried finding out about this from some Bulgarian-American websites but it seems like these factors are in play: 1) the websites haven't been updated; 2) some, if not all, of the restaurants don't want to have their phone numbers listed on the Web; 3) some, if not all, of the restaurants went oob. Any ideas please?

Juicy Juice cherry juice in bottles

Why is it so hard to find Juicy Juice cherry juice in bottles, in New York? I tried looking for it at my local supermarket, but all I see is Juicy Juice in mini-cartons that you poke a straw into to drink the juice, and every other juice but cherry. I've seen the cherry juice in large bottles only in Florida. Is there some kind of an exclusive packaging rights issue in New York? Any help you can offer on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What's happened to the people that ran the (unfortunately defunct) Thunderbird Restaurant in NYC?

Does anyone know what ever became of the people that ran the (unfortunately defunct) Thuinderbird Restaurant in New York City please? This, if I remembered the name of the restaurant correctly, was a Native American restaurant close to the American Museum of Natural History and I believe the only one on the (northern) East Coast of the US. There is a Native American restaurant in Washington, DC, but of course it's a six-hour trip by bus from NYC and not worth going to if only in Washington, DC for just one day---Wahington is one city that one really needs to spend a LOT more time in if one wants to really enjoy the visit! I really miss a true Native American restaurant in New York City!

Does anyone have a recipe for an Armenian food called "choultik"?

Hello from a sunny and cool New York! I once heard of (and had) this dish at an Armenian picnic, which if I remember correctly was in New Jersey, a few years ago---not all Armenian picnics are created equal: some of them have some things that the others don't!

Places serving the most flavors of brewed flavored coffee in lower Manhattan

Hello from sunny New York City! I am wondering where there are places that have the best variety of flavors for brewed flavored coffee in the Wall Street area in lower Manhattan. All I see so far are the usual quartet of flavors: Mocha Java, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Chocolate Raspberry. It's getting a little monotonous....any ideas please? :-)

Karabich

Hello again! The spelling for karabich is correct as far as I know (although it may also be 'karabish"). Karabich are distinctly different from gurabia in that the former do not have the buttery taste of gurabia. Karabich are made to be dipped in a thick ekmek-like cream made with rose water.

Ubu Ale

Hello from COOL and rainy New York City! I was just on a minivacation in the Adirondacks, and just discovered a really delicious ale there. It's Ubu Ale, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a place in New York City where I could get this all year round. Ubu Ale seems to be a microbrewery brand. Thanks!

Karabich

Does anyone know where I could get a recipe for karabich? Any books or people in the know? These are small Armenian cookies, spherical or shaped like cupolas, that seem to be made with eggs and are dipped in a type of cream made with rose water. I had karabich a few days ago at an Armenian picnic in White Plains, NY. Thanks!

Where to get nonalcoholic spruce beer in New York City

I have two questions, and I'm wondering if anyone can help me on them: 1) Does anyone know where one would be able to get nonalcoholic spruce beer anywhere in New York City? I've heard that there is a small company in Connecticut, Mistic (not to be confused with the larger fruit beverage company Mystic) that makes a spruce beer, but I'd rather have a beverage that's all spruce rather than doctored with wintergreen oil; and 2) Does anyone know if it's possible to bring in Canada Dry spruce beer from Canada itself to the USA without having to declare it at the Canada/US border? I don't know anything about this now, what with all the new antiterrorist regulations! I tasted Canada Dry spruce beer quite a number of years ago and it's very rwfreshing, with a delicious citrusy taste.
