  1. Thanks for all the replies, I will pass them along.
  2. I don't think it's the crushed red pepper. It's described this way: "Instead of red pepper flakes, they are like little red chili peppers..."
  3. Can anyone tell me where to find peperocino in Manhattan? I'm sure it's available, can't say that I've really looked for it, but a friend is in Italy and expressed the wish that she could obtain it here when she returned. Thanks
  4. I'm not that desperate for bragging rights,I guess. The price is right, but when I was there, (6ish) most of the little windows were empty. There were a few burgers, some wings, macs and cheese and those spam things. Plus the little condiment counter was rather a mess. All in all, it wasn't something that cried out "Eat here!"
  5. I did go to Bamn! but tried nothing. Sorry; it just didn't look appetizing, and I was too hungry for little snacks, and not hungry enough for snacks and a meal. I'm sure you've seen the pictures, but here's my snap anyway: http://peanut-butter-and-bacon.blogspot.com/
  6. I'm heading out there in a few minutes. I checked in here hoping to see a report. I'll let you know.
  7. After I wrote this I realized how unfair I was being to Fairway. In truth, Fairway carries far more items and it would not be easy to match the two stores straight up. For many things I would still go to Fairway. I suppose I should have said that I don't like Fairway prepared foods that I've tried, and have enjoyed the prepared items I've bought at Trader more.
  8. I had a week off and got in this past Thursday AM, no line at all. What I've tried so far (chevre, crackers, guacamole) has been good. Better than Fairway brands. Eggs were cheaper than my local markets, and the Hebrew National Franks were 2 dollars cheaper than in my neighborhood. Can't wait to go back when I have my little cart along.
  9. I suppose a really special Iron Chef could have an ingredient totally unhinted at before the battle. I wonder how the results would be then.
  10. The American Heart Association produces a widely available cookbook. I've not used it, but in addition to recipes, it should provide basic rules by which you could adapt some of your own.
  11. I agree about Cold Stone, but then I'm not much for tons of add-ins. This one isn't in NYC, but I saw Applegate Farms in Montclair, NJ in the thread, so I'll just go one town over, and mention Holsten's in Bloomfield. (Broad and Watchung). This place is the Real McCoy, an honest-to-goodness, old-fashioned ice cream parlor complete with lunch counter, a chocolate candy counter (as far as I know they still make their own candy and ice cream.) Nothing fancy, but good ice cream, sundaes, shakes and sodas, with whipped cream so thick your spoon stands up in it. Not a low cal meal at all, but a grilled cheese and Taylor Ham, side of very good fries and an ice cream treat of some sort on the way out the door and I'm good to go. Just a short bus ride from mid-town.
  12. I also find it gummy., although I wouldn't have used that word beofre you suggested it. I keep waiting to be impressed by the Factory, just as I wait to enjoy Doughnut Plant doughnuts. So far, I can't even pretend to like them.
  13. About 25 years ago I bought a Waring ice cream maker. Simple, good results, I hope it never wears out.

    I don't like the frozen hot chocolate at all, just a personal thing. I do love their sundaes. I can't think of anything I would bring someone from there.
  15. I should add that Park and Orchard is not BYOB, but does have a superior beer menu.
