Best of the UWS, 2014 Edition

How has nobody mentioned Dhaba Deli on Columbus and 107th? No atmosphere at all (icky bathroom, loud Indian TV, a couple of shared tables), but the best veggie Indian food I've ever had. And it is cheap.

Kudos to Mendy's

Reasonable people can disagree - not saying it is extraordinary, just pretty good. With Shalom Bombay gone, it is a fairly valuable option if you are in Midtown East and don't want to walk past 5th Avenue or spend a lot of $.

Kudos to Mendy's

In a bowl, slices of beef, with some carrots and celery, lots of sauce, and mashed potatoes. Probably not that authentic, but only around $14 and tasty.

Shalom Bombay

Is their midtown location closed? It was dark and looked like it was under construction yesterday.

Kudos to Mendy's

I'm generally not a huge fan of Mendy's, but want to note my approval of their goulash. I was talking about my Hungarian ancestors last night and am working near Grand Central today. Their GCT food court shop's menu is mostly sandwiches and soups, so the goulash is easily missed but it caught my eye. I wouldn't say it is worth a special trip but if you are in the neighborhood you could do far, far worse.

Kosher Aperol

Oh and I'm happy with substitutes, for the record :).

Kosher Aperol

So the plot thickens... Luxardo is on the CRC list as kosher only if marked as so on the bottle, and the bottles I have found have to hashgacha.

Kosher Aperol

Hi - since I trip to Venice I've been obsessed with making my own 'Spritz' cocktails at home. Does anyone have tips on places to buy kosher Campari or Aperol? I've had trouble - tried lots of liquor stores in Brooklyn and so on... thanks!

kosher in eilat

Thanks for the rec SoCal. Yum really good there. I also went to an Italian place called Angelina three nights in a row - I was a bit shy about going but it was quite good. The creme brûlée is is of the best I've had and they actually serve decent wine which seems rare in this town.

How is Jay and LLoyd's. I have to be in the area anyway. I'm especially interested in the matzo ball soup and pastrami.

lunch near port authority

I think Loving Hut is kosher, with the same kind of supervision as Cafe Viva. It's very simple, really take out witha couple of tables but was pretty good. http://lovinghut.us/newyorkcity/menu....

Downtown Cleveland [moved from Vegan/Vegetarian board]

Can anyone recommend anything vegetarian (no fish, eggs and dairy ok) and chow-worthy in downtown cleveland. I'm willing to splurge on price. I'm staying near the Radisson downtown, extra points if I can walk there.

Vegetarian chow-worthy in downtown cleveland

Hi. I'm looking for something chow-worthy in Cleveland for dinner. I'll be staying at the Radisson downtown, without a car. I'm a vegetarian (no fish, cheese is ok). Where should I eat dinner? Expensive is ok, and I'd prefer something walking distance but would take a cab if it is really special.

Thanks!

UWS meat and bread

I've just moved to the UWS of Manhattan. Where are good places to buy quality kosher meat (everything from lamb shanks to deli) and bread (prefer something more interesting than Zomicks).

Thanks!
