  1. Farrell's was the greatest! I was a kid, so the singing waiter/kitchen sink ice cream orgy wasn't a gimmick - it was cool. Now that I'm an adult, it would be a gimmick. Aaahhhh, childhood.
  2. I've been reading about many different types of food on Main St....are there any E-gulleters who can give a quick run down of what's available? I know there are a few soul food, Caribbean, and Latin places. Where are they, and which ones are the best?
  3. I am (was) a big fan of AHD. The owners were very open about their initial effort to open a new business and I think they really used Egullet to build their business, with good results! I'm kind of mystified by the complete silence....What's going on?
  4. Wow. Talk about serendipity! I drove past China 46 with a friend over the weekend, and was completely bemoaning the fact that it's closed, and I had eaten a great Chinese New Year meal with E-gulleters.....wah,wah, wah.... Anyway, I also go to Chengdu 1 in Cedar Grove.
  5. We usually make a big plate of nachos. I make white chicken chili, and we have an array of fixings. We used to go to the track in Dover, De, but it's just too much money nowadays. So, we'll celebrate at home!
  6. Mardi Gras in Verona, next to Amazing Hot Dog, has great soup.
  7. How was everyone's Thanksgiving? What were your culinary highlights (and lowlights)? I was very pleased with my turkey this year. I placed a mess of onions, carrots, garlic cloves, fresh thyme, in the bottom of the pan, and kept up a continuing stream of broth. The veggies carmelized, which helped to give the turkey a beautiful brown during basting, and lent the gravy an unbeliveable color and taste. I was pleased. (and I'm usually my own worst critic) Did anyone eat at a restaurant that served a particularly good meal?
  8. I was trolling another food site, and the web site for this spot is really piquing my interest for Thanksgiving. I don't have a sweet tooth, but this might work out well for everyone else! www.sweetavenuebakeshop.com
  9. I'm not shy about shouting the praises of this small restaurant (especially when it's 3 blocks from my house!) http://www.northjersey.com/page.php?qstr=e...nFlZUVFeXkxNQ==
  10. Also, Varelman's in Rutherford (on Park Ave.) has baked apples.
  11. I believe there is a thread for Sabor Peru in Rutherford, in fact I am usually singing its praises. It's located on Highland Cross (right off of Park Ave. near the center of town) Closed on Mondays, and it's BYOB. http://www.saborperunj.com/ I've been there at least 4 times and I love it. I try something different every time I go and I've never had a clunker so far. It's a tiny space, so if you're looking for a Friday or Sat. eve. dinner, reservations are recommended. It is a friendly and sometimes noisy space. (during peak times) That doesn't bother me. I highly recommend it. (Plus, it's right down the street from where I live!)
  12. OK, egulleters. Here's a question. Do you have a local joint, fancy restaurant or local deli where the proprieters or wait staff make you feel truly special? I had a "a-ha" moment last night after another great dinner at Sabor Peru in Rutherford. Dave and Horatio made me and my friend feel like we were the jewels in their restaurant crown. I am a complete cynic, so they must be pretty genuine. It made me also appreciate the people at Terry's Coffee Shop in Union City, who used to fill my coffee order before I even opened my mouth. I know I am a customer and a consumer, but to have that extra bit certainly helps.
  13. My favorite Italian meal 'experience' was after my good friend went on a cooking tour of Italy, and gave me a lesson in her kitchen of making homemade ravioli's in a butter sage sauce. I'm lucky...I grow sage and she bought me a crank pasta machine as a birthday present!
  14. AND...right around the corner from Sabor Peru!
