  1. Just updating an old thread... Had some very fine couscous & tagine recently at: Dar Lyakout 94 boulevard de la Tour Maubourg 75007 Paris 01-45-50-16-16 In the École Militaire area. I can't suggest it highly enough and have been to most every other recommended Paris place; many expensive and underwhelming (it's still Paris tho')... Dar Lyakout was excellent.
  2. The new initiative is at all whole foods... Gives you an idea of status of the fish you are buying and is consistent with the rest of their local products (although maybe not as... enlightening). (donning flame retardant suit and at the risk of surely having community already tread this ground) How anyone can decry them for helping folks know more about where your food comes from is beyond me. If all you have to shop from is Shop Rite's and AP's and Whole Foods offers your family a way to understand more about their food at a price which is sustainable for vendors and community - the complaint smacks of elitism... Sure - live in Park Slope Bklyn and shop the Co-op; but the rest of us... Whole Foods has changed the retail food delivery system.

    Steel-cut Oats

    This guy can cook and one of my inet fav's: Skirlie--the Scottish side dish
  4. Hi... Was checking threads to see if there are new Indian ideas in the Edison/Oak Tree Road area - or are Moghul and Ming still 'the thing'...? Thank you in advance for ideas.

    Marinating Chicken

    I use a Jaccard Meat Tenderizer to cheat... Prefer to brining (but not always)...
  6. I have the Sanyo ECJ-D100S 10-Cup Micro-Computerized Rice Cooker/Steamer, White with Stainless Accent, purchased from Amazon in 2005 and it is among the most reliable of electronics in my house. We use every day to every other day and is simple and goof proof to operate; make not so bad risotto as well...
  7. Actually - this place does it too... http://midtownlunch.com/2008/06/18/olympic...-york-city-nyc/ They had a name change but fries, fafalfel - still same, (have the laffa), still good. Crisp good too, although a world of difference...
  8. check out http://midtownlunch.com/lunch-by-food-type/ The falafel threads are great - and rec's on the mark.
  9. John - given your knowledge regarding hot dogs & joints - have you compiled a list of your favorite brew pubs in NJ...? Thanks...!
  10. I eat here continually; lunch specials (weekends) a steal (mapo tofu on it); owner customer focused, affable - family run; food an inspiration... Hands down on of the best restaurants in the Montclair area (in a niche, if not the best).

    Was there this weekend for a little surf myself... Moustache Bills (Barnegat Light) has won a 2009 James Beard award... Lex Mex - perfect; their tuna burrito Hawaiian style with chipolte a taste treat. Harvey Cedars Shellfish lobsters as reliable as ever (platter w/ mussels). Finally - Woody's burgers (had the blackened blu cheese burger) a great island fest... All - good (+ small surf)....

    There's a thread on this subject Curlz: http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?showtopic=89081&st=0 But I'm sorry to say one of my fav's has called it a day: Blue has given way to owners new restaurant in Phila called Noble. Still - good one's abound nevertheless...

    This place is drop dead good - Chengdu #1 good - have the grilled octopus app; *oh my god* good... I really look forward to eating thru this menu...
  14. Of course you are right Curlz but in this instance (like Melt) AHD used the board to pretty much vet everything about building, sustaining and expanding their business model. One reason internet dialogue is so infuriating is that is often one way - take. People generously give ideas in the hope of some feedback (well, some people). The community is usually trying to learn something through the discourse. "Melt" was a great example; a complete cycle, the proprietor left little doubt about why he was moving on... Gonna miss the dogs - but really - the fries.
  15. I've yet to find a review of similar midtown establishments (read recent note on Grayz); thought Bar 44 impressive site but drinks not on par w/ PDT; same for Moma Bar (see/be seen)... So where are the craftsmen/women of Midtown...? Thanks.
