Need a great gift

There is an artist at Brooklyn Flea that has some amazing natural wood cutting boards. Brooklyn Flea is open on weekends. You can ship overnight for Christmas delivery.

Partos Pizza in Riverhead gets bought out by Uncle Joes

That was confusing!
I cringe when people say "In Long Island" instead of "on" Long Island.

Heading West toward California has always been "Up Island" to me. Heading East toward Montauk or Europe, "Out East."

Having breakfast on Long Island

I used to live in the area and it was a breakfast favorite. Good reviews for Lunch and Dinner too.

"downisland?" Orient Point?

What makes a Diner special?

Get out! Oregon has an Astoria? Are there Greeks there?

last minute help needed- a date with a vegan saturday night

Kajitsu is very good and the ambience is superb but be prepared for a $300 check for two if you do the sake pairing which I recommend.
I do believe they also have a less expensive tasting menu with fewer courses. I found the $85 offering had was much food and I am a big eater.

I have found that to please vegan (the Hezbollah of vegetarians)or vegetarian girlfriends and have decent options for myself good upscale Middle Eastern restaurants work well. Sometimes we'll just order an assortment of non meat, non dairy appetizers (Mezze) which can be quite satisfying.
Al Bustan
Byblos
Al Mayass
and Bodrum are some favorites.

cheesecake

Don't remember a plain pie either. I love that red glop. I'm sure it's healthy.

cheesecake

It's similar to the cheesecake except it's in a pie tin with slightly different crust.

credit and debit charges

At my retail store we are charged a % on credit and debit card purchases. Higher % on credit cards and lower on debit cards. Amex charges more than Visa, M/C or Discover.

Arthur Ave with kids

I always go to Dominick's which would be perfect for kids. I am sure there are many great places on Arthur Ave but I've got a thing for Dominick's. Go figure?

cheesecake

Great advice from Monica. I am a big fan of Junior's Strawberry Cheese Pie (not cake) but I think it's only available at the original Brooklyn location.

Carnegie Deli or Katz's?

On Saturday I heard a car salesman in Bay Ridge say "Sangwich." Warmed my nostalgic heart.

Moving to 129th and Lenox-and I'm vegetarian...

Barawine is close by. They have lots of excellent non meat dishes.

I like Roadhouse but the order processing system is a mystery to me and everyone else there. I avoid it at busy lunchtime.
Funny, I was thinking of taking home a pie for dinner tonight. I had decided on Carlo's for convenience but you have me thinking of Roadhouse now.

Carnegie Deli or Katz's?

I do!! Hah!!
I did my mini pastrami (smoked meat) tour over the last few days.
Katz's in the wee hours was excellent as usual. Amazing pastrami sammich and vanilla egg cream. Nice busy LES vibe going on.
Junior's at midnight was as good as I remember. Tasty pastrami sammich and their vanilla malted is to die for.
Mile End, Brooklyn, for their "smoked meat" sammich on superb rye bread was very tasty, as expected, but different from Katz's and Juniors.

Oysters

I have to admit that my mind was racing too.
Then again, many years ago I came to the conclusion that dating a woman who loved oysters was a definite plus.

bBds in Rocky Point (Long Island): Burgers and beer and more, what a great place!

Closed on Tuesdays!!

I love BBD's!!! It's one of the few places I can get an authentic vanilla malted!! Not a milk shake but a malted.
Amazing burgers and fries. The desserts look fabulous but who has room after that giant burger, malted and fries.

Carnegie Deli or Katz's?

I am sure that the script for the ad used the word "Sandwich" but I know it was pronounced "Sammich."
For example:
In Boston: Worcester MA is "Wuster" or "Wister"
Car is "Cah"
Sox is "Sawks"
In Brooklyn Toilet is "Terlet"
In London Leicester is "Lester"
Got it, get it, good. Sorry it grates on some people. Mea culpa!

Oysters

"He was a bold man that first ate an oyster." J. Swift
Unique and each variety different.
Go to a restaurant that has a nice variety. Try a half dozen. You'll either like them or not.

Defontes gone?

I was there when they first opened. Everyone was staring at the three part menu board in confusion.
Seems like they are trying to answer a question no one asked.
Not a bad idea but it seems very pricy to me.

I do remember the Lo Mein at the original location. Nostalgia strikes again!!
