Craving Turkish cuisine

Something about the warming weather--I'm particularly keen on seeing if anywhere has Kibbe Nayye (like Steak Tartare but with lamb, mint and lemon--sounds like heaven!) Got suggestions?

What kind of food do you think goes good with licorice liquors? Maybe crisp salads and cups of soup?

Best absinthe websites?

Terrific, I hadn't looked at that site! Thanks so much

Right, I realize we're going with two different eras, but our tentative plan is (besides feathery masks) is to hunt down authentic absinthe, failing that enough champagne to keep the guests happy, and a hors d'orderves explosion, mini everything. Have suggestions? I want to do something along the lines of shrimp puffs, and lemon meringues, and we'll have a significant amount of vegetarians. Lot to process, I know, but if this moves anyone to speak, do! Thanks!

Throwing a holiday Belle Epoque party which is rapidly approaching, and I know there are a few websites online that sell genuine absinthe and figured I'd toss it to the crowd: which one's worked for you and didn't get damaged/confiscated en route? Thanks in advance.

In search of the city's best Margarita

The classic and imo, the best: Burrito Loco on W. 4th. Tons of nifty flavors, oh yeah and on your birthday they make one in your mouth. Def worth a shot. ;)

Your two favorite Mexican restaurants in the East Village

Comic Cantina is awesome, a regular haunt of mine. Two tips: with their nachos they never melt the cheese unless you explicitly ask, and I got my wallet stolen there once. But no hard feelings. You'll see what I mean if you taste the margaritas.

Carrot Cake?

My favorite remains Yura (3rd Ave and 92nd, very underrated bakery imo) with their delicious cupcake versions. Yours?

best mussels and fries in Manhattan

I don't know about the mussells there but Jules's is fantastic wth things with shells-- the escargot were out of this world.
