I wanted to know if anyone has come across patacons in NYC. I have previously tried the patacons off the Patacon Pisao truck but Id rather not journey to Queens are way far uptown to get them. The sandwich itself is made with an assortment of meats with fried plantains in place of the bread and a secret sauce. It is delicious. Anyone know of other restaurants in NYC or BK that makes it?

Bday Dinner By myself...

So I have Bday party with friends at 1030 at night and a baseball game to attend that starts at 4:10 so assuming its done by 7 I want to grab a decent dinner for my bday before I have drinks with friends. I want to go to a nice restaurant and get a reservation. It would be a friday night. Thinking 3 courses, seafood and willing to spend up to 60 bucks.

Brunch at Minette Tavern and Dinner at Torrisi's Italian Specialties for One

I am thinking about going to Minetta Tavern on Sunday and grabbing a burger at the bar. I wanted to know if this makes sense going on my own at 11am when the place opens. I was told there is bar seating and table by the bar for individuals to grab some grub and I wouldnt need reservations.

As for dinner at Torrisi's Italian Specialties, I wanted to pop in when it opened for dinner at 6 and grab the pre fix on my own. Does Torrisi's even allow indiividual customers to sit and have the pre fix considering how small the place is and how they try to maximize their profit margin by getting people in and out? I noticed some seating on the side which I believe is meant for inidivudal customers but I am unsure. Would I be ok heading their early one day and grabbing the pre fix on my own?

Large Format Feast for Bday


I turn 29 in a couple of months and have been thinking of getting a group together for a large format feast to celebrate the occasion. Amongst the candidates are Resto's large format feast, Ma Peche's beef seven ways and the Breslin's Suckling Pig or Lamb dinner. I wanted to know if anyone has tried any of these meals and their recommendations for any additional spots. Thanks.

Where can I find green tea salt?

I often go a Japanese restaurant in Williamsburg called Zenkichi. They have an excellent eel tempura dish with cream cheese that is served with green tea salt on the side. I love the green tea salt and wanted to know where I could find such an item for sale in NY.

Looking for Apple Cider Donuts

I've had apple cider donuts once in my life stopping by Stu leonards on my way up to CT, this was over a year ago. They were fantastic and I have been craving them as of late. I live in Brooklyn and have been wanted to grab some somewhere in the area. Ive been told they are at the Union Square Green market but unfortunately because it closes by 6pm I wouldnt make it in time after work. Does anyone have any info on where I could get these in brooklyn or anywhere that I can reach?

2010 Dine In Recommendations

So Brooklyn Dine in has been in full swing for over a week and Ive been trying to figure out 1 or 2 places to go before the week is up. Most of the dine in menus are not posted on websites so I figure Ill ask Brooklyn chowhounders if there are any places they have gone to the past week that they liked for dine in and if they could share their take on the individual dine in menus that they ordered from.

Salsa Golf import place?

Probably reaching here but I went to Argentina this past summer and found they have their own condiments aside from ketchup and mayo called salsa golf (which maybe made from the two). I like the hellmans brand they had down there and I can't find it here in the states. Does anyone know any food importers in the city I may go and pick it up?

Ever since sampling the huaraches at the Red Hook Ballfields I've craved them. The ballfields are closed and I am not satisfied. I am looking for info about where to get them (carts and restaurants) in the NYC and Brooklyn area.
