Jacks Gourmet- Facon

Glatt Express in Teaneck has them. The cranberry apple is great in stuffing.

All of them. The chorizo is amazing--I just used it in Mark Bittman's Paella with Chicken and Sausage.

Which beef cut to substitute into today's NYT recipe for Bo Ssam (slow-roasted Korean pork shoulder)?

I was thinking the same thing as I read the recipe! Thanks for posting this question.

Has anyone used any of those Oxygen sauces from Israel?

I use the Mango Curry sauce very often for chicken. I pour a bottle of it on cut up chicken (one bottle is enough for two chickens), cover with foil, bake at 350 for 30 minutes and uncovered for another 30-40 minutes. Everyone loves it in my house.

Pesach Coffee Cake recipe

I guess I didn't stockpile enough Maneschewitz coffee cake mix (my children's Pesach staple). I am down to my last two boxes. Does anyone have a recipe for a homemade alternative? I'm all for homemade baked goods but you have to admit, that coffee cake mix is awesome--that's why it's the only cake mix sold out at every store near me in Teaneck.

Cholent for Pesach

I have a Pesachdik crock pot and going to attempt to make a cholent for Shabbat of Pesach--anyone do this and have a good recipe? Would quinoa be a good substitute for barley?

Positive Experience at ETC. steakhouse in Teaneck

We went this past weekend for my husband's birthday, with our 4 kids. We had the risotto, the gnocchi with beef cheeks, and potato leek soup as appetizers--everyone loved everything. The risotto was especially good. My husband had the short ribs--to die for. Loved my peppercorn fillet steak, served with a marrow bone with a tiny spoon. I recommend the zeppoles for dessert. It's so refreshing to to to a kosher restaurant where the chef really cares about his food....12 thumbs up from my family!

NOBO Experience

Very disturbing! Shocking that nothing has changed and in fact only gotten worse since it was The Pasta Factory!

ETC STEAKHOUSE - REVIEW OF OUR TASTING MENU EXPERIENCE

NOT true. I drove by last night just to verify. Restaurant was full around 9:30.

Imah Restaurant -- New Place in Teaneck

This is very disappointing. We don't really need a carbon copy of Sababa Grill directly across the street from it! Cafe Adam is a real loss--my kids loved to walk to Cedar Lane and hang out there with friends and eat reasonably priced and tasty DAIRY food.

Best place for breakfast in Jerusalem

Every Friday, in the basement of Hechal Shlomo, Marvad Haksamim (restaurant on Emek Refaim) sells the most delicious and inexpensive take-out food, everything from appetizers to desserts and challah and grape juice. . A much better deal than any of the hotels, which are extremely expensive for Shabbat dinner.

I had this beet ravioli with goat cheese that I can still taste...
I have never had pasta like that in a kosher restaurant in the US...have yet to go Rome, though.

Best Restaurants in Jerusalem

missed the 6 hr lamb, but sounds interesting....we had two different tagines and the pastilla, which was absolutely incredible. Best part: the waitress pours the tea about 4 feet above the glass, and it's delicious. It's a great place for families because everything is served family style with a lazy Susan in the middle for passing. Man, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

We loved Luciana on Emek Refaim. Delicious homemade pasta. We also had a great meal at Darna--traditional Morrocan with great ambiance and amazing food.

Ad hoc at home ok for kosher kitchen?

I have Susie Fischbein's "Kosher by Design Entertains" and "Short on Time," and have read through most of the other cookbooks. What bothers me about these is that they are big on presentation but weak on food, and full of recycled recipes from her other books and even recycled blurbs about the recipes. My biggest pet peeve (here's the teacher in me) is the number of grammatical errors on every page. It's as if the editor had no idea about punctuating sentences. I don't think I'm being overly picky here; if I buy a cookbook, I expect it's going to be readable, and I am so offended by the lack of concern for clarity on the part of the publisher. As a foodie, I am looking forward to owning Ad Hoc even if I can't cook most of the recipes because I'm sure it's exceptionally well written and will give me lots of ideas for adaptation, if not merely a great read.

Pre-theater meal in Theater District, NYC

Update: when we got into the city, we decided to try LeMarais. It was 5:50, we were seated immediately, and were out the door by 7. Food was good, as usual. Love their fries and roast chicken. My daughter had the coq au vin, which was nice. We shared a dessert and made it to be seated for Hamlet with Jude Law (had to throw that in--it was awesome)by 7:30. All's well that ends well :)

Pre-theater meal in Theater District, NYC

Going to a 7:30 show tonight and can't get into the city until 6 or so...does anyone have a recommendation for a fast yet decent place to go? We like Le Marais but I don't know if we can be in and out of there in time to be seated at 7:30. Is the Clubhouse Cafe across the street a better choice--faster service?

Mike's Bistro: Chef's Tasting Report

Thanks so much for posting such a detailed review. I've been thinking about doing the tasting menu at Mike's for a while. We love Mike's, though we don't get there often. I actually appreciate the small portions there, while others complain, because I can't stand enormous portions that are more than a human should be eating in a sitting, no matter what the price.

I love the gnocchi--and just fyi--it's made with duck confit. Don't think the feet of the duck would be all that tasty. :)
