  1. Just saw this thread & am probably too late (by months) with this info., but Dhaba Express is part of the group that has Dhaba on Lexington Ave in Manhattan. Not saying its not great, but maybe not the place to be your #1 reason to hit Parsippany for Indian food.
  2. yep. weinoo posted a picture of the gravesite so I added the 2 murals.
  3. As weinoo said, we were in Montreal (for the month of May) & got around. Lots of great murals - we even took a mural walking tour that was well worth it. Loved Schwartz's, did not like the bagels from any of the famous places - not St Viateur or Fairmount. They put honey in the water, makes them too sweet. And they are way too dense for me. Lots of good eating. Actually, when you get away from the skyscraper/Bell Center area, the neighborhoods of Montreal remind me a lot of the neighborhoods of Brooklyn. For me, that's a good thing.
  4. Well, maybe. On another board (or 2), I recommended he try Le Gigot because their OpenTable menu lists it and several of us remember having it there. They may have shortened their menu currently but be able to make it if Dave calls & asks (something only someone pushy like me would do & he would probably never do).
  5. yeah. I grew up 4 blocks away and hung out there as a teen. I knew Dom for 55+ years & will miss him being there. RIP
  6. Many, many years ago (the early '70s), there was a show that featured "The All Dead Band". I remember it as Natl. Lampoon's "Lemmings" but, according to Wikipedia, its not a listed number so that might not be it (although you should definitely Wikipedia it, since that show was a hoot). At any rate, all of the rock musicians who had died were represented & the band had a Ginger Baker stand in playing drums. I understand that he blew a gasket when he found out about it and said something dramatically more than "but, I'm not dead". Just sayin'. (thank you Smithy and docsconz)
  7. What do hot dogs have to do with this? Oh, wait... that's wieners. Well, that works too!
  8. I had no idea of the connection to Schiller's.
  9. Funny you should say that. I have no idea who owns it and, up until last year, had never set foot inside any of their places. However, we had some of Ginny's relatives coming in from NJ last year & we were responsible for finding a place that could handle 8 people with, lets say, varying tastes in food & wine during a lull in the pandemic. We found JWF's web site on line, liked it well enough & took a chance. Turned out great. Incredibly friendly, intelligent service, food above what I expected for the price/location & a definite winner. Enough so that we had another, similar situation several months later & went back. Same result. So... you know the owners? Glad they're nice and expanding into Brooklyn.
  10. Yep. Same here in NYC. I've seen places I know on several "reality" shows & all were staged to exaggerate so as to increase the "entertainment value". Even Saint Bourdain did this. There was an episode on one of his shows where a very food board popular small Egyptian place was featured. He showed the place with several outdoor tables & smiling groups of diners loving every minute of it. Although the place, its food & its owner were dear to my heart, it never had outdoor tables and the folks sitting at them were friends of mine, asked to come and help stage the shoot.
  11. Adding my 2cents to this, I think that, in N.O. and other southern parts, drum is sometimes referred to as croaker. At least that was what I was told years ago when we were there and I asked if it was related to catfish. Its not.
  12. If you wind up liking the olive oil, its available in the U.S. Although you can find it on Amazon (approx. $35), "yummy bazaar" (which I've never used) has it for around $18: https://yummybazaar.com/products/nyons-cold-pressed-extra-virgin-olive-oil-a-o-c-by-nyonsolive-8-45-oz. When we rented an apt. in Vaison la Romaine several years ago, we drove up to Nyons a couple of times for their town market. Their local olives and olive oils were pretty damn good. Enjoy!
