Will there be a wait at Robertas on a Monday night?

Who cares? The food is great.

Le Chateaubriand: Has something changed?

I think that's right, Maximillien. We liked our meal there. Not everything was amazing, but it was all interesting. We also liked Le Dauphin better. The dishes were less experimental, but nearly all TKOs as far as taste was concerned.

SoPi recomendations

In NYC at least, it's not hipsters coming up with new names for neighborhoods, it is definitely the media and real estate agents.

Brooklyn Eatineray - need input!

They are delicious and pretty far apart. Maybe go to Smorgasburg before DiFara as the wait at DiFara can be considerable. Can you be more specific as to what else you are looking for? Brooklyn has a wealth to offer and the finds can be a bit spread out.

Chowhounders - Please give me what you got :)

Holy moly does that cover a ton of restaurants -- I think that's why you're not getting any replies. Can you provide a budget range and more specifics on what you are looking for?

Run, Don't Walk -- Orwasher's Corn Rye, Only Available in March

Note: it is not available at the Orwasher's stand at the Greenpoint greenmarket. When I asked about it today, the dude behind the counter told me it's too much trouble to make and they haven't made it in years!

Little Elm

You mean The Elm in Williamsburg? Plenty of yelp reviews, perhaps you were accidentally adding "little" as in your post above. http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-elm-willi...

Paris: Best Foodie Neighborhood?

I second that emotion. During our holiday trip, we were most impressed with the rue des Martyrs area. A feast of riches.

We love it. Unfortunately, Sara Kramer the chef is on her way out. I really really hope it stays delicious. http://ny.eater.com/archives/2014/02/...

I turned it out right away, but the recipe directions are unclear.

OddFellows Ice cream Williamsburg

We, like apparently everyone else today (heat wave and all), were craving ice cream. We made our first visit to Odd Fellows and got the lemon honey ginger and maple bacon pecan. Both were very, very good. I thought the lemon honey ginger was a touch too sweet for my tastes (but my husband thought it just fine). I am the kind of person who likes a lot of stuff in her ice cream, and really enjoyed both flavors. Nice textures and brightness. Would definitely return!

Cool! Hopefully you will all like it as much as we did. What's nice is that I typically have the ingredients around, except for the whole milk yogurt. Baking it in a cast iron skillet is such a nice touch.

Mark Bittman's Yogurt Molasses Bread (adapted by Food52)

Food52 was hyping the crap out of this recipe at the end of 2013. I caved and made it yesterday and it is indeed absurdly good and unbelievably easy. You just use whole milk yogurt instead of butter, oil and sugar. I even ran out of yogurt and subbed in sour cream for about 30% of it. Also added a handful of raisins and walnuts. Definitely going in the regular rotation.

Mexican Street Food in Front of Our Lady of Guadalupe on 14th Street

Is this a regular thing? I just purchased a delicious chorizo sope for $2.50. They have quite an elaborate set-up in front of the church with flautas, tortas, tamales, sopes and horchata. It all looked really good, and the sope was delicious.

Le Dauphin

We ate there in October and loved it. High ex-pat/tourist factor, if that matters to you.
