  • Elementi on 7av anyone?
    So who has overcome their sticker shock and eaten at the new place where Snooky's used to be? What's up with the $10 appetizers and not being bothered to be open Mondays? The diners I've seen in there look like Cucina transplants who've been driven off 5av by the younger set. Like to know if ...

  • Q. When is organic not organic . . .
    A. when Bud says so.

    The fact that Anheuser-Busch may get an exemption rankled many organic food adherents.

    “Hops are a crucial ingredient for beer. Why can’t they use organic hops?” said James A. Riddle, an organic consultant and a former chairman of the organic advisory board.

    Mr. Riddle also complained that ...

  • Di Fara's is closed again for health code violations

    I had a really good spicy pork burrito (made on request) at a Mexican restaurant called San Luca Tierra Mexicana on the corner of 47th and 7th in Sunset Park. The filling itself was more flavorful than chile pepper hot but it did include a side of hot sauce made out of crushed chile peppers ...

    Just saw this place today, on the corner of Lincoln & 5th (on the side closest to 6th Ave). Looks like Middle Eastern/Turkish or something similar. Couldn't find any signage for a name or menu, but spoke to a woman who had eaten there last night (she didn't know the name either) but ...

    My mom is in town from Miami and she wants to have a Cuban breakfast (cafe con leche, tostada, some eggs). I'm at a loss as to where I can take her.

    She'll spot a Dominican or PR restaurant masquerading as Cuban, so it needs to be authentic. Anyone know someplace I ...

    Subject: Rice Balls at Joe's Superette in Carroll GardensI never really liked rice balls, those softball sized mothers you see in most pizzerias. But Joe's does them differently. They are golfball size which allows for more of that crispy crunchy outside and they come in three flavors - rice and cheese, meat and ...
