Fried Chicken Brooklyn

I have to concur with Steve R. I have only had extremely mediocre food at Jake's in the past. Maybe if has changed. If so, they clearly have a large amount of history to overcome.

Brooklyn meatball emergency broadcast - help us

The one time I went I found the meatballs to be lackluster as well as the sides and the overall atmosphere.

Coffee in Park Slope

Read something somewhere about them opening up on one of the cross streets in basically the same place.

Kitchen Nightmares at Sals pizzeria

Weird. Everyone I have ever watched had the obligatory eews and icks as he runs through the kitchens finding disgusting thing after disgusting thing after disgusting thing.

The worst part is that almost all of the restaurants he "helps" fall back into their old ways 6 months after he leaves.

Does not bode well for the long term viability of this pizzeria.

Best selection of champagne for sale (store) in Park Slope/Prospect Heights?

Agree about Sterling Grapes. The one around 5th and 14th Street also has good prices. The liquor store next to costco has them all beat though...

Best selection of champagne for sale (store) in Park Slope/Prospect Heights?

I would not recommend Red White and Bubbly, their prices are higher than almost all of the other places in the neighborhood, at least for the stoli I recently bought which was 6 or 7 bucks more than other places in the neighborhood.

I would just go to La Bagel Delight right across the street. Far better than purity, never been to Zito's though...

Park Slope's Changing Landscape

Leaf and Bean is gone as well: http://www.heresparkslope.com/home/20...

This blog also documents other closings in the general vicinity due to landlords charging rents that are too damn high... (Sorry, could not resist

)

Also, it seems to indicate that Barrio is only renovating.

favorite brooklyn butchers

Agreed... I got a great lamb shoulder roast from Fleishers yesterday. The meats looked great and they had a wide selection. I'm not sure if they are going to bump los paisanos as my go to butcher, but they're definitely in the running.

Ethical question about finding a nail in packaged salad blend. UPDATE!

Probably shouldn't have sent the nail in... Now you have no proof and they have no reason to get back to you or otherwise make reparations.

Butcher in Brooklyn

I would not recommend M&S, which is actually a few blocks farther away from Flatbush than A&S which was far superior in my opinion. At the end of the day, M&S simply doesn't do enough business to keep a wide variety of fresh meats in stock like Paisanos. I live closer to M&S than Paisanos and regularly drive past M&S to go to Paisanos because I got tired of going in there and being told that they don't have oxtail or quail or pork belly or duck etc...

I'm not saying that they're lying, I am saying that I don't believe them however... Anyway, I still can't take her seriously as a host or judge.

Actually eating the food would be an affront to her 200 calorie/day diet... I really just can't trust someone about food who looks like they haven't had a decent meal in 35 years.

I want to shoot the works for a group business dinner

"le bernardin, despite three michelin stars, is not stuffy."

Obviously, I, and others, think it's stuffy; you don't... OK: Let's just leave it at that... Although, I am curious as to what restaurant you would in fact think of as stuffy, if not LB? and, are you talking about the air circulation and lumen level or the general vibe? (i.e. when I say stuffy... I'm talking about the general vibe.)

I agree. It's pretty stuffy vis a vis what the op is looking for.

I don't know... The "I'm talking here" yelling segment, looked pretty authentic in the disliking of Ludo department to me.
