Visiting from Boston and seeking feedback/suggestions on where to eat and drink

Agree on soft boiled eggs, or actually coddled. in most decent places l have been

Visiting from Boston and seeking feedback/suggestions on where to eat and drink

OK, fair enough, l just don't like the place or the food, regardless of authenticity.
Again, my opinion for my taste.

4th one just learned now closed.

To really be honest,when l went to Cheu Noodle Bar with a Caucasian friend, we both hated it. Me eating Asian food 3-5 times a week, she rarely.l am Caucasian BTW.
Two of my regular dining company Asian friends went there a few weeks later and could not believe how totally unauthentic the place was, this is very important to them.

The owner went to various Asian countries, looked at their cuisines and said he could do them better, his words not mine.
Yes this is a local darling but l would not go for a free meal.

Assume hostess at High Street was Danielle, listen to her, she knows her stuff.

Do not agree with Cheu Noodle. l like 5 places better for ramen especially Terakawa on 9th. There you can specify the doneness of noodle you desire.

Journées Gourmandes in Saulieu

Off-topic but about Saulieu.
If you go try La Fouchale, fromagerie.
Last time in @ 12 months ago they were trying to sell, but they produced a fromage fort of my dreams, my single favorite cheese in the world.

Great lunch at Argana Tree in Jenkintown

Get a bigger stash !

l virtually never go to a non BYOB, when l do l don't drink adult beverages. One of best things about this area for me.

Onion bagels

It is now on the list.
Thanks

Onion bagels

In this area , all l have tried.
l schlep from CC to NY bagel.

Heirloom in Chestnut Hill

Not to your problem but certainly wish l had your manager at Kunkel's in Haddon Heights on Friday night.
Got a $37 ribeye 1/2 " thick well-done and tough instead of rare as ordered. By the time the harried waitress even looked at our table of 10 the meal was done. There were three of us in the same boat.
You may have had bad food and bad service but at least they cared and tried to rectify it.

Onion bagels

Kaplan's Family Bakery at Poplar and 3rd still has a decent seeded rye, and Russian black, and pumpernickel

Porte 12 ,Paris

Bordelet available at K & L. Look for the one from the very, very old pear trees.
l have fallen in love with a Swiss cider maker named Cidrerie du Vulcain, again both pear as well as a wonderful mix of pear, apple, and quince.

Onion bagels

IIRC slivers and lots of them

Onion bagels

Assuming you mean a bagel and not a bialy try New York Bagel on City Line Avenue.
We may differ as l felt H&H was too breadlike and not chewy enough for me when they were around.

Porte 12 ,Paris

Thanks for the article.

The author of that article was J Freidrich whose book on Loire wines is my bible for that region.

Chez Denise...Joséphine Chez Dumonet...La Tour de Montlhéry ou chez Denise...Moissonnier

Chez Denise has a table in the rear room between normal seating and the kitchen that seats 10-12 IIRC, would be perfect.

Josephine CD might put two of the 4 tops in the front room together and there you go, try.

Where to eat near Longwood Gardens?

Recommendations for fancy Italian restaurant

If you want a Peter McAndrews place, l would push Monsu above Modo Mio these days.
Went to both within a few days of each other a month or so ago and found while Monsu was wonderful, Modo Mio was a saltlick.

Recommendations for fancy Italian restaurant

To call La Famiglia and Panorama mediocrities is to elevate them way above their terrible status.

They're here... well not HERE but almost

Had softshells at Blue Point in Princeton last night. Sauteed not fried, expensive but excellent and very big. We had Cape May salts as well, both raw and fried.

A question for anyone who pan sears their brisket...

Had the exact same issue, l use a 14" slope sided nonstick sauté pan. Can be a littlr dicey to get the triangular piece all seared equally but quite inexpensive and if damaged will get another.
My doufeu and largest Le Creuset dutch oven was not close in width to what l needed.

Vin jaune in Paris?

You have mentioned that before to me and l feel it should be a wine that withstands stress better than most others, if stress does occur there.

Back Issues of Saveur?

If one ships by media mail, not too bad and is added on the purchase price. Been a while but 25 rings a bell total for the two boxes.

Searching for good egg rolls!

Funny, was at Golden Unicorn on Christmas Day and thought it was weak as well.
l like Jin Fong on Elizabeth St.
