best korean bbq?

IN Koreatown, we really like Kum Gang San. Otherwise, Bonn and Woo Lae Oak are probabaly the best in the city.

Chinese cocktails?

I don't know if the beer wouldn't make it taste too bitter?? Sake is mild and doesn't interfere as much with the Lichido and Canton flavors intermingling with the grapefruit juice

Looking for good but not pricey pasta

I second Cacio e Pepe. The pasta is delicious...especially the Tonnarelli Cacio E Pepe, tossed with Romano cheese at tableside in a cheese bowl

Falafel

I highly recommend the falafel at Rectangles. They make it with lots of herbs so they're green and fresh!

It's hard to beat the Chilean Sea Bass at Nobu, although it's pricey.

ISO mochi ice cream other than Mikawaya

They have very good mochi ice cream at the Sunrise Mart on Stuyvesant Street, a great Asian market in general..

Where Can I find Horchata?

Anyone know where I can find some authentic Spanish Horchata? And if not Spanish, any kind that they really recommend?

Anyone tried Lichido?

I think it is a NY thing.I've had Lichido cocktails at a few different restaurants already, and it seems it's getting awfully popular.No surprise there. It's really yummy!!! I've been a devoted fan for weeks now.

Here's a link: http://www.lichido.com

What To Have With BBQ moved...

I think a nice Grey Goose Extra-Dirty martini goes great with BBQ. The briny tartness of the olive juice in the martini cuts the smoky richness of the BBQ really well.

MUFFULETTA SANDWICH

They have a Muffuletta sandwich at Gumbo Cafe up in the West 100's. Don't know if the place is still open, though..

Mac 'n Cheese

La Petite Abeille on 20th Street has a really rich and savory mac 'n cheese, with crusty cheese on top. You'll walk out ten pounds heavier, though..

Best Italian in NYC?

There are many, but I really need to add Vittorio Cucina to the list. There are several different menus within their menu book, each for a different region in Italy. And they have a fettucinni parmesan that they serve in a hollowed out parmesan wheel, out of which they remove chunks and mix into your pasta tableside. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
