  1. Its all your faults! I read this thread yesterday and ordered from a local Chinese place. The last time I did this (from another local place) was during the 1st wave of COVID in April when I was jonesing for Chinese food. That was terrible and this was not any better. Could we please get thru this so that I can get back to a good place -- I'm out of delivery range for any of them and its frustrating. And, please, no one start a similar thread on Indian food.
  2. This new one, the original around the block in Clinton Hill & the big one in Williamsburg at the old Domino Factory site. (just being helpful 😀) Congrats Daniel.
  3. The River Cafe is open (outdoors, with that view).
  4. Not that I'm THAT old, but Leff started Chowhound's board in late 1999 or so. I started participating in early 2000. The software sucked but it was highly entertaining. And informative. And argumentative. The first exodus from CH came here and, while some stayed, others moved on to OA (with Plotnicki) and then to MF. Some of us never left any of the boards and just added another one as they came, sometimes using different "names" (you know who you are, "weinoo"). I lurked here for years before joining, as I didn't want to write that damn essay. As to "face to face"; well, I'
  5. One of the places I used to get my cans of Cafe du Monde after hitting up the original version of Vanessa's Dumplings up the street.
  6. ahh, to be a fly on the wall when "significant eater" asks weinoo how the movie was. 🤕

    Dinner 2020

    Happy Birthday. Lucky I didn’t see Wu’s delivery car coming down the street - it may not have reached your place.
  8. Pretty sure that the original was from Brooklyn and had something to do with swimming with the fishes.
  9. liuzhou: "I don't know where you get this idea that everything originates in just one place. Many things have been discovered or invented over and over again in different places". You mean, like this thread? 😇
  10. When this thing blows over, go to one of the Dongbei restaurants in Flushing (Fu Ran closed but I think Golden Palace on Cherry St (off Main) is still going to still be there. At any rate, they both put this dish out just about every time I've been there over the years. Sometimes during the meal, mostly at the end. Never on a dish, always sticking to the edges of what it was cooked in. A solid mass needing statue carving implements after awhile, but satisfying a month's sugar craving all the same.
  11. My favorite quote (well, for today, anyway). Yes, I'll grant that if you call it a "kebab", then you can trace it to Central Asia. At least you can trace the name there. Otherwise, I'd guess that putting meat cooked over an open fire on a skewer of some sort might have occurred to other people in other lands. The relevance of this escapes me, even though I seem to have a lot of spare time to ponder things.
  12. Only 59 &, from my very limited interactions with him over the years, a really nice guy.
  13. Dinner by delivery from our local good N.Y. Red Sauce Italian place (Queen Restaurant). I almost feel that I had a normal day.
  14. Yeah, but remember - New York isn’t an open carry state... yours is. Sorta changes the dialogue.
  15. Trust me, the risk is greater if you try to eat what I'm able to prepare. 🤢
