Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi Turkish coffee in the can at Garden of Eden at Broadway/108. Owners are Turkish, so some other good Turkish food like soujook and recipes in salad bar....

Does Saffron taste like plastic to anyone else?

Saffron is better as a background flavor as in seafood stew, but let the other seasonings lead, like Pernod. Saffron is like cumin, when over-used a dish becomes unpalettable.

I occasionally dine at Peter Pratt Inn. Good food and personal. The chef is often on the floor.

German In Westchester: Went to them all Yesterday

Blau Gans in NYC hits the spot for me. It is busy and full of stylish people, and pricey, but worth it. Good tap beers, too.
