Restaurant in area of B'way/Canal subway station

For dinner. Good food, inexpensive. Quiet enough so we can talk and patient enough to let us do it.

Need a cheap eats option very near the Whitney

I'll try to remember to post about Three Guys after I've been there. Again, thanks to all.

Thanks to all. I'm going to try Three Guys on Madison between 75 and 76. Since no one mentioned it, I assume I won't be bowled over, but it could hardly be closer, or cheaper in the neighborhood.

Is there a diner or coffee shop within a few blocks? Or in that price range? Good would be nice but close is more important. Thanks!

First-timer hosting Christmas dinner - critique my menu?

Once summer is over and the memory of real tomatoes is not so sharp, I'm pretty happy with the kumatoes (correct spelling) at Trader Joe's. Not sure they're actual food, but they sure can play it on TV. Roasted, I bet they'd be fine if available in your area.

Can I make these cookies without a stand mixer?

The recipe doesn't describe how it should look for steps 1 and 2, so if anyone thinks they know, I'd appreciate a hint. Can I use the old portable hand mixer I do have, or won't it be powerful enough? I'm not strong, so I'd like to use it if I can.

EDIT: I mean I have a portable ELECTRIC mixer, not a hand mixer!

Can I make these cookies without a stand mixer?

OK. I think this recipe may get hooted off Chowhound, although it does come from Momofuku Milk Bar. Here's a link –
http://www.publicradio.org/columns/sp...

In brief,
1. You cream butter and sugar together on medium-high for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add egg and vanilla and beat 7-8 minutes.
3. Add flour and other dry ingredients and mix on low until they come together, 1 min., max.
4. On low, incorporate cornflake crunch and chocolate chips just until incorporated, 35-40 sec., max. Then mini-marshmallows until just incorporated.

That's it for the mixer/paddle. I guess the descriptions are enough to take a chance on steps 3 and 4. Any advice on steps 1 and 2? Thanks!

Can I make these cookies without a stand mixer?

I've found a recipe online that I'd like to make, but it assumes I have a stand mixer with a paddle attachment. My kitchen is equipped circa 1953 – blender, hand mixer, and that's it. No stand mixer, no food processor. How can I adapt the recipe, which describes the process by how long each step will take with a stand mixer? What tools can be used that I might have and how long should I mix to equal the recipe? Thanks!

What wine with vegetable lasagne for Thanksgiving?

Very true, Atakist. I got a recommendation from my local wine shop and it was OK. I'll plan better next time. Thanks to all.

What wine with vegetable lasagne for Thanksgiving?

This is not my dish. I'm told it has a red pepper sauce (not the hot kind) instead of being tomato-based. My guests would probably prefer a red, but if you think something white would be better, I'm open to it. I had a Riesling the other day that might be good, but I'm not really sure. Thanks!

Best burgers in East Village?

Looking for this and searching the board turns up nothing relevant. Just what it says is fine. A perfect place would also be comfortable for grown-ups on a Saturday night, but that may be too much to ask given the neighborhood. Quality of the burger is #1.

This is for TONIGHT (4/4/09)! Help!

Any good, reasonably priced food in the area. Diner OK, or up from there. Say, $25 or under without drinks. Thanks!

Where can I buy Domaine Rollin Pernand-Vergelesses 2003?

In email they say that it has all gone to restaurants. I got the bottle I had as a gift in France. Oh, well. Thanks for the info.

Where can I buy Domaine Rollin Pernand-Vergelesses 2003?

I'm moving this question from the Manhattan board to this one on the advice of one respondent there. I'm in the East Village and I'd like to buy some of this wine--maybe have a case delivered. Can anyone recommend a local source or recommend an online site to search? A previous answer suggested wine-searcher.com, but they're not yet listing 2003.

Hole in the wall authentic ethnic

Madras Cafe on Second between I think 4th and 5th is Madras home cooking, including some of the owner's mother's recipes, all vegetarian (+ all kosher and many vegan), minimally decorated, low prices, delicious food. He has taught his cooks to do the whole menu in a manner indistinguishable from his own. Last time I tried a multi-lentil pancake appetizer that was new to me--very good, and with more protein than most of the dishes. My perennial favorite is the kofta curry. Way better and much less oily than 6th Street.

Good and lowish fat in Chinatown?

I'm on jury duty at 60 Centre St. next week. Any recs for good relatively low fat lunches in Chinatown? I'm doing Weight Watchers. (Easy and delicious if cooking at home and in summer, harder eating out and in winter.)
