Food/Shopping to haul back on the plane!

You know - I just rewatched the Best Thing episode last evening with the Lobster Tail in it from Ferraras. That definately just went to the top of my list. So are you saying Eataly is not that great? Can you provide some thoughts? Was going to hit DiPalo's as well. Thx.

Thanks Adam. I actually can't stand Salmon. I am a foodie - but have never really enjoyed it. So - I will just have to settle for smelling like a pastrami!

All of you are overachievers and leave me something to strive for. Thanks for all the great replys. I am in town for an interview and really only have from 3pm on one afternoon/evening. I am going to do my best to stimulate the manhattan economy and do some big boy eating and hauling. Thanks so much for all the advice. I am trying to prioritize my stops now!

Some of the best Pastrami I've ever had. Do they package this for hauling?

Food/Shopping to haul back on the plane!

Greetings. I am coming to NYC for a couple days at the end of the week. Been a few years since my last visit. My question for those of you privledged to live in the greatest city on earth (IMO) - if you no longer lived there - what food/items would you haul back with you on the plane? Obviously - they have to be somewhat non-perishable for travel. I'll have my cooler bag and I pack agressively. I haul wine from all over the place in my bag as well as other items.

For instance - when I travel to SF - I always get cheese from Cowgirl Creamery (Mt. Tam for those that care), Chocolate from Recchiuti (Ginger Heart Squares are literally the best chocolate I've ever had and I don't care much for Chocolate). When I hit Philly I get Marinara from Tuluttos.

I already plan to hit Eately as Italy itself is our favorite international destination and the food scene in Denver (where I now live) is a bit lacking.

Thank you in advance for any advice. I'd love to someday form a list like this. When in this city - hit these places to eat and buy these items and haul them because you can only get them here....

Ciao.

Jeff

One Amazing Meal in Florence

Thanks for the posts. In regards to unforgettable - I think I would classify it as just the overall experience. Ambiance, Food, Service. My personal mission in life is to find and experience as many unrepeatable life experiences as possible. Many of those have revolved around food and wine in my 38 years. Thanks for the help.

Jeff.

One Amazing Meal in Florence

Greetings Chowhounders:

Great board. I've really enjoyed reading the posts. So, we will be spending 2 nights in Florence. This is actually our 5th trip to the city. AND - I cannot recall one meal we've ever had in this city. I do recall sitting on a balcony of our hotel watching the sun go down over the Arno on perfect evening - eating various meats, cheeses, sun dried tomatoes and several bottles of wine. One of our greatest meals that trip.

I would really like to eat an amazing unforgettable meal one evening while we are there. We are big time foodie and wine people. So - if you had one night and you had to eat only one meal in Florence - what is it?? I intend to go eat it. Thanks for the help.

Best -

Jeff
