  1. Top Pot donuts aren't bad. I'm from Seattle so I've had them fresh. I really don't think they're anything too special. That's just me though. There are loads of places in Seattle that make a much much much better donut.
  2. Hello there everyone! I'm trying to find a vegetarian restaurant in Manhattan. It's for a first date, so I'm trying to make a good impression. Any suggestions are much much much appreciated! Thanks!
  3. Like you mentioned earlier, they are a different beast. I'm kind of obsessed with my environmental impact so, taste aside, grass-fed is my #1 choice. I do think the taste is pretty exceptional though. On a somewhat related note: I'm going to be returning to Seattle over the holidays and without knowing where to find any kind of proper meat there, I am seriously considering going vegan or vegetarian while I'm there. Working at Fleischer's have left me spoiled to the point that I find it hard to impossible to consider eating anything else.
  4. INteresting post. I work at Fleischer's in Rhinebeck, so I eat a fair amount of the meat there, to say the least. That's the first time I've heard someone refer to the smell of the cooking meat as "grassy". Although, I definately know what you're talking about. It's definately has a subtle earthy-ness to it. I've never had anything like it. The chewiness is do to the fact that the meat is leaner because of the fact that it only eats grass. Leaner diet, leaner meat. Feeding with grain creates a dramatic difference in the fat content of the meat.
  5. I work at Fleisher's actually. The rotisserie chicken is awesome! There were 2 left at the end of the night tonight. I ate one and gave the other to older couple I met on the street. They were quite pleased.
  6. Good to hear about some quality eats in the area! I just moved to the Rhinebeck-Staatsburg area so it's nice to hear of something co close.
  7. Thanks for the responses! One of things I am curious about is flavor combinations with grape. I ate a grape earlier with a peice of cardomom stuck in my teeth that came dislodged when I started chewing on the grape. The taste was actually quite pleasant! So I'm wondering about cardamom now.
  8. Oddly enough, the word grape is only mentioned once in the entire thread. Thanks though.
  9. So I just picked up about 7-8 pounds of grapes at the local farm and I want to make some jelly as gifts for everyone at Christmas. Does anyone have any interesting recipes? Thanks, Marc
