tacos nueve mexico

Has anyone noticed that the food at Tacos has been terrible lately? The bar next door closed, I peaked in the other day, and it looks like a new bar is going in. But what happened to the food. Does it have new owners?

Mexican in Brooklyn

I don't like Maria's anymore, I think it has gone downhill. However, Tacos Nuevo Mexico on 5th ave between 11th and 12th it as good as ever, and cheap too.

BK Heights/Cobble vicinity: I need lox and whitefish for 15 (brunch)

I've been buying a large package of lox at Costco and it was quite good. I have also bought the lox and whitefish at Fairway and it was good as well.

Frozen dumplings - favorites? best place to find them?

I buy frozen dumplings at the asian supermarket on 8th ave and around 68th st. They don't have msg and I have been happy with the flavor. I pan fry them in a little oil to brown them, and then I add a little water to the pan and cover to steam them. Yum.I'm trying to decipher the brand from the package, but all I can find is Chef One on the back of the package. On the front is the no msg, no artificial color info. Good luck

Tacos Nuevo Mexico. 5th ave. and 12th st., or La Flor 3rd ave. and 12th st. (the best rotisserie chicken I've had.)

fairway in Red Hook

After I'd been there three times, I had the store figured out. Before that it was definately overwhelming. I have had great specialty ham at the deli counter. Fresh salmon was cut nice and thin and was fresh. Organic meat was a great suprise (as I too quit the coop and this was one thing I missed). Between Fairway and Sahadi, I have everything pretty much covered.

Ferdinando's in Carroll Gardens - review

My husband and I discovered Joe's about a year ago. Their seafood pasta is so awesome, my husband has dedicated himself to replicating it at home. He has interrogated the waitresses, brought Italian friends there, etc. He is close, but not there yet, so we keep going to Joe's. I also recommend their pasta con sarde. I haven't seen it on any other menus, and it it also amazing (I especially love the bread crumb topping they put on the table). Would love to know any other dishes people have had there?

dinner in denver

I want to get my brother a gift certificate to an amazing restaurant in Denver. I live in New York, so I am depending on some chowhound recommendations. He is a waiter, so he knows a great place when he eats at one. He doesn't always treat himself, so I want to send him to someplace amazing. Any recommenations?

Gefilte Fish in Brooklyn?

I think I have always gotten the most traditional, which sounds like the one you get. How good is that stuff? I wait all year for Passover. I don't know why I don't get it any other time of the year.

Gefilte Fish in Brooklyn?

Years ago, the NYTImes ran an article on gefilte fish. THey recommended Raskins Fishmarket: 320 Kington Ave. @ President St in Crown Heights. They have many flavors, fresh and frozen. I have been buying the frozen logs, and serving them to people for years. They are amazing. I highly recommend. (worth the culture shock and being ignored by the hasidik men)

help! park slope (4th ave/8th st) breakfast/lunch delivery takeout reccomendations

Several of the places you mentioned aren't near 4rh ave and 8th st, and several don't deliver. Our standby is Tacos Nuevo Mexico on 5th and 12th. I second the take out place on 4th and 10th, and our all time favorite is the rotisserie chicken from the corner of 12th and 3rd. Yummm. (Ithink it's called La Flor).

Hey, what's the story with "Cooking with Jazz?"

You might be confusing Cooking With Jazz with another restaurant. It was absolutely not expensive. And the early bird special was incredibly not expensive. The quality of the food and the atmosphere was worth so much more than what the food cost. I can only imagine that you have it confused with another restaurant.

Hey, what's the story with "Cooking with Jazz?"

I couldn't believe it when I read your post. My husband and I loved that restaurant. We used to drive from Brooklyn, and took all our favorite people there. How I wish they would open up in Park Slope. (Hint, Hint).

The market cafe and gourmet store in delray

I was in Del Ray last week. Ate lunch there every day. The only good food I had all week. (As I live for food, this restaurant was an oasis for me) Delish sandwiches, ice coffee, even my kids liked the grilled cheese and pear/apple sause. The staff and owner are very friendly and accomodating. One afternoon they were out of the pear/apple sause, and they gave my kids complimentary cups of gelato. The outdoor seating is lovely, as is the inside. I recommend it without reservations.

Where to find southeast asian ingredients?

There is a big amaziing Asian and beyond supermarket in Sunset Park. I believe it is on 60th st and 8th ave. It is near an N train stop. Maybe somebody else knows the name. I have always been able to find anything I need there, including Thai basil (not easy to find) I believe I have seen keffir lime leaves there as well. Before shopping you can eat at the Dim Sum place across the street, with the big lions guarding the entrance.

Park Slope, where to hold baby shower suggestions?

I don't love Little D and they don't have great atmosphere. I would recommend Palo Santo on Union St. Awesome food and incredible atmosphere.

Brooklyn's Chinatown help please!

Great news that World Tong is so close to the subway. Thanks. Is it as good as they say? I heard that the chef left recently.

Brooklyn's Chinatown help please!

At the upper end of Brooklyn Chinatown (near 60th st and the N train)is an amazing supermarket with food from all over the world and especially Asia. Across the street is a big restaurant with two stone lions out front. THis is a pretty good dim sum place. I have eaten there many times. I hear that World Tong in Bensonhurst is amazing, but it's hard for me to get there without a car.

Palo Santo: Any recent visitors?

I had the chef's tasting menu, and it was one of the most memorable dining experiences I've had in a long time. I sent my husband there with a Haitian friend of his, and they concurred. It was amazing.
