Turquoise Trail recommendations anyone?

I'm off to a quick getaway to ABQ for two nights next week! So excited to have Green Chile and Sopapillas. I've planned my meals thus far: Lucia for lunch, Mary and Tito's for dinner. I need help with the 2nd day. Driving the Turquoise Trail and need recommendations for a bite, breakfast or lunch? Am going for the New Mexican cuisine, so that would be the first priority but I could be persuaded towards another cuisine is if it's really good on the Trail. When I hit Santa Fe I am heading for the Shed or Horseman's Haven as recommended by Chowhounders. So any help along the drive would be much appreciated.

Bad experience at 'wichcraft--aberration?

I agree with sugartoof, I used to get the breakfast sandwiches at the Flatiron and thought they were the most heavenly combination with the egg over easy, frisee, blue cheese and a gorgeous ciabatta. Then they raised the prices, then they switched bakery. It was awful. Not worth it. No longer go there.

Brunch: Joseph Leonard or New French?

Thank you! Good to know regarding New French. Had dinner at Little Owl a couple of months back and was really happy about it from service to vibe to delicious food.

Brunch: Joseph Leonard or New French?

Trying to decide where to go for brunch with a friend. Needs to be delicious and have a relaxed atmosphere. Looked at reviews and these two restaurants seemed promising. Can you help me decide? or if you have any other suggestions that match this vibe, that would be very helpful.

Help....Dessert for gifts?

I need suggestions for a client with a sweet tooth. Last time I loaded them up with treats from Momofuku Milk bar which they loved. They've also had treats from Kyotofu. The treats have to be able to travel, no cream. Thank you for your help!!!

Sweet Purple Potatoes

Got 'em! At Chelsea Market's Manhattan Fruit Exchange. They came in on Thursday. Delicious! You have to ask them to get them from the back room, I got 2.5 pounds, there's about ten pounds left in the box. They charged $2.99 a pound.

Sweet Purple Potatoes

UPdate: Called Barzini's and they don't have it.
Chelsea Market did not have it stock, just placed an order for a couple of pounds. We'll see if it's the right stuff. Should be in on Wednesday.

Sweet Purple Potatoes

So I tried all the recommendations and here's the current report:

Eataly, not available.
WHole Foods, Columbus Circle: last time they had it was four months ago. They also said it was called "Adirondack Blue" potatoes. Not sure if it's the same sweet potato or another breed.
Westerly Market, not available.
Chinatown, not available.

Good News!!! Just called Chelsea Market Fruit Exchange and they said they have it!! going to get it now. $1.19 a pound. Will report back if it's really true.

Sweet Purple Potatoes

Anyone know where to buy Sweet Purple Potatoes? Not to be confused with the Peruvian Purple Potatoes that you can find at the Farmer's Market. Apparently these elusive potatoes are delicious and sweeter than the yellow sweet potatoes.

What's the ISE difference?

I often here ISE mentioned as a favorite, but don't know which one is referred to. There's two in midtown. What is the difference in menu, service and atmosphere? Which do you prefer?

I'm staying in the Ile St. Louis for five nights at the end of the month. Wondering if chowhounds could steer me in the right direction? Looking for a flaky croissants and great baguettes. Also, looking for somewhere nearby to pick up picnic fare. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

POP Burger Fries recipe

Had Pop Burger fries yesterday, they were incredibly crunchy and yummy. Can someone tell me how it's made? What gives it that thick layer of crunch?

Roadtrip NYC to Mt. Laurel NJ, where to chow down?

I'm taking a business roadtrip today from NYC to Mt Laurel NJ and need suggestions... I'm not familiar with NJ in the least bit so anything along Route 295 would be good. Looking for an inexpensive and delicious bite. Ethnic is great, maybe Vietnamese?

The Central Park Boathouse

Poor service is always disappointing and during these times all businesses have got to appreciate the value of giving not just good but great service. That said... I hope you tried the crabcakes.

Dog Show this weekend-harrisburg

Thank you both. Now I don't feel completely clueless :-)
It's a shame that the venues make people eat lousy food at really high prices.
I get in around 4 on Friday. Will see if there is anything going on at that time.

Dog Show this weekend-harrisburg

Hello Chowhounds,
I am a new yorker going to the dog show this weekend in Harrisburg. Will be staying at the Crowne Plaza and need recommendations for take-out or somewhere nearby that's walking distance. WIll need Friday night dinner, (Mangia Qui? Suba?) and Sat breakfast. Would love a recommendation for a deli or restaurant to take food with me to the Farm Show Building as I'm sure food there would make me cranky. The day is long at the show and I've got to keep my energy up!

City Island Bronx suggestions?

Thank you, gutreactions. I think that I would most likely go to Artie's for the appetizers. Any recommendations regarding their menu?

City Island Bronx suggestions?

I was wondering if someone could steer me in the right direction for Pelham Bay, City Island. My horse is at the Bronx Barn right at the crossroad for City Island and I would like to know if there is anything on City Island where I could go to after a day of riding? Looking for brunch, lunch or even a great bar would be nice. Casual is definitely the way to go since I will be in riding clothes. LOL
