The Grappolo space in Chappaqua...

I walked by there today--windows are papered and there's work going on inside. The permit lists "Rob Roy" as the owner of the permit. Anyone know what's going in there?

Old Stone Trattoria in Chappaqua

I love this place. You have to order the rectangular "Grandma's" pies, not the regular, round ones if you want good pizza. If you order right, you'll be very happy. Chicken parmesan is also very good. So is spaghetti and meatballs.

1920's Speakeasy Party - Need Heavy App Ideas

Also any classic oyster/clam app like oysters Rockefeller or clams casino would be great--also easy to make in batches for a party as long as everything's prepped.

1920's Speakeasy Party - Need Heavy App Ideas

There was a great recipe for Liptauer dip/spread in the NY Times a few years back that goes well with vodka. It's the wrong era, but still retro and cool. Definitely a conversation starter! http://www.nytimes.com/2005/01/26/din...

Why Do So Many Foodies Hate Whole Foods?

I love whole foods and do most of my shopping there. If you're not buying tons of packaged, processed, single-portion foods (and if you call yourself a "foodie" you really shouldn't be) it's basically the same cost as everywhere else (I live in the NYC suburbs.) I've tried switching to other chains like A&P or Shop-Rite, but the bill ends up being about the same. What I really hate is Trader Joes--talk about overrated and overprocessed crap. If you're buying actual whole foods, Whole Foods (and the is just fine. And I like that they have high standards: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/produ...

Best Beef Stroganoff in NYC or the boroughs?

Where can I find outstanding "classic" beef stroganoff? (I know there's a lot of debate about authenticity here?) Willing to travel to any borough. Help!

Help with "Vernors"

Try Bevmo. There's on on Van Ness and I know I've seen it there (albeit a few years ago.) I'm sure if you call in advance, they can get it in stock if they don't have it now.

In search of new takes on classic dishes in NYC and boroughs.

CHOW's researching a new video series about chefs/cooks who are doing interesting spins on classic dishes. As an example, the fried-chicken craze of late comes to mind, but we can also go crazier. What have you seen out there lately that I should check out?
