street meat UWS

Looking for a good place to get chicken and lamb over rice with white sauce near 104th and Broadway in the evenings. I am a big fan of Famous Halal Guys and Kwik meal but don't want to travel that far. Any suggestions?

Who do you follow on the Manhattan Board?

I can't believe no one has mentioned Ziggy41. He has not steered me wrong yet. He also has a great blog too with lots of info on Hell's Kitchen. If you are reading this Ziggy 41 I tried Pure Thai Cookhouse. The only downside to my meal there was that I dropped that delicious Asian rib all down my shirt but it was yummy!

Asian Restaurant (Broad St., Middletown, CT)

Thanks for the post. I have been wondering about this restaurant since they sent the menu in the mail. On another note though I miss Sorelle's in the same location. I ate their garlic bread several times a week when I was pregnant!!

Fancy Food Show-next week

really liked the saffron vinegar and the sriracha baked popcorn.

Fancy Food Show-next week

Thanks for the info. I was thinking that too. My only experience has been with bakery food shows. Glad this one will have savory as well. I will make sure to check out the newbies. Do you know if there will be alcoholic beverages/cocktails to try too?

Fancy Food Show-next week

I am attending the Fancy Food Show next week. This is my first time attending. Does anyone know of any special items I should look for there and also with so much food there will I need to plan any meals elsewhere?

Ma Peche (NYC) vegetable recipes?

I had this dish a couple of weeks ago and also can't stop thinking about them. I practically devoured the whole dish myself. If you find a link to a copycat recipe please post it here.

Mercato Hells Kitchen

Does anyone know if the menu is the same as their lunch/dinner menu for Saturday and Sunday brunch? I want to go there but I want to try items on there lunch/dinner menu not breakfast like items. On another thought-I had my heart set on lunch at Momofuku Ssam bar for Saturday brunch/lunch but now I am thinking Ma Peche instead mainly due to reading Ziggy's blog. It has become my new favorite NYC food page. Any thoughts out there? Ma Peche is closer to where I am staying but I have no problem taking the subway either.

brunch/saturday lunch with mother in law, mom and teenage daughter

Ended up going with Five Points. So glad we had a reservation. Everyone enjoyed the food especially the lemon ricotta pancakes. It was quite loud for the old ladies but they managed. Thanks everyone.

Quick note on Laduree SoHo

Back to Laduree Soho-Does anyone know if I could get a table if only having a breakfast pastry/dessert and tea or would I have to order an entrée off the brunch menu on the weekends?

Thanks for all the replies. I know you New Yorkers would come through!!! I was kind of thinking of Five Points myself. In a couple of weeks I will let you know where we went and how it went over with the family. In the meantime keep the ideas coming.

brunch/saturday lunch with mother in law, mom and teenage daughter

Looking for a nice place for either brunch or lunch. Mother in law is more the 5th Ave type. Décor ranks higher than food for her. Mom is funky-more downtown than uptown lady. Daughter-will find something to eat but no seafood. I am open to anything but have to consider my companions for this trip. We will be down in Soho for a hair appt. and the less walking for the mothers would be great. Not opposed to taking the subway. Also the mothers are hard of hearing so a place that isn't too loud would be good. I know that is a lot of special requests but I know you chow hounders can help me out.
Thank you.

Dinner/Late lunch near Town Hall Theater

Manhattan-Anywhere really from 110th and Broadway to the LES. Like any kind of cuisine. Funky-out of the ordinary is good. Saturday 4/5/2014. The show at Town Hall begins at 5:45pm. Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Can't imagine that it will go pass 8pm. Would like to stick to the $75.00 before tip, tax, alcohol.
Butter, Momofuku, The Nomad are on my bucket list. Any thoughts on these?
Don't really want to dress up for dinner.

Dinner/Late lunch near Town Hall Theater

Thanks for the replies. Keep 'em coming. I am also thinking maybe after the show for dinner since it will be over before 8pm. Also willing to travel by subway so bring on any and all ideas please.

Anyone been to Taboon recently?

If you decide on Gazala's place check out the Groupon deal. Went for dinner at the Columbus Ave location and it was pretty tasty and a good deal.

Dinner/Late lunch near Town Hall Theater

Looking for place for dinner or possibly late lunch near the Town Hall Theater on 43W street. The show starts at 5:45pm so I think pre theater menus are out. Thinking of spending $75.00 per person. Open to any type of food and would probably prefer a more casual place where we won't have to dress up but top notch food is the most important. Also any hole in the wall places for cheap meals in that area would be a plus. I spend lots of time in the city but not usually in the midtown/Times Square area.

Looking for best fancy pants burger

Looking to try the best fancy pants burger in Manhattan. Can't decide between Minetta Tavern or DB Bistro. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I have already been to Five Napkin and Peter Luger.

Baltimore 'hound seeks suggestions off 91 between Hartford and Stamford

http://www.yelp.com/biz/taqueria-mexi...
Exit 13 off of I-91. This is my go to place for tacos and burritos in Wallingford. Cheap hole in the wall place with great food.

Beauty and Essex

Brunch is good. Especially loved the Emerald cocktail and the tomato soup dumplings. There is a deal out there on Gilt City.com for brunch for 2 with a bottle of Champagne for $70.00. A really good deal as brunch for the 4 of us with 3 cocktails and one non alcoholic drink was pushing $250.00 with tip.

Cronuts that good???

I also had been to DA way before the cronut explosion. My question is if I want something other than that do you still have to wait in line or can you walk in?

Best Bread in NYC?

My daughter and I live for the chocolate orange rolls on the weekends!! Also the apricot hazelnut baguette and the chive cheddar pastry are terrific. I'm hungry now.
It's worth a trip uptown to Silver Moon.

Seatac to Silverdale

Flying into Seatac in the evening. Figuring by the time we pick up the car it will be after 9pm on a weekday. Any ideas where we can get a casual quick bite to eat on our way to Silverdale. We will be driving around-not taking the ferry. Easy on easy off I-5 would be ideal. Open to anything especially ethnic options.

Lunch near Federal Reserve Bank

Weekday lunch. I was thinking about SHO. Do you think we can make it out by 1:45 if we sit down at noon?

Lunch near Federal Reserve Bank

I am looking for a place for lunch near the Fed. Going with the inlaws and a somewhat picky teenager. Ambiance is more important to my mother in law than the food. Just to give you an idea-she really loves Jean George, Perry St., Tao. She would like to go to someplace nice but I am concerned that if we get to lunch at noon would we be able to make a 2:15pm reservation at the bank. Someplace close would be ideal. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

from CT to Great Adventure New Jersey

Spending a few days in Cookstown and going to Great Adventure. Any dining suggestions in town or anywhere between Cookstown and Jackson? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Ethnic cuisine is a plus.

Lunch in/near Orange, CT

I am glad you liked it. I live over an hour away from there and since I have been going to Shanghai Gourmet any other chinese food near me is just gross compared to them.
