  1. Bivio Pizza, Little Falls

    ChetaMorton: thanks for the note. Let me know when you try Bivio. I have seen the new bakery in town but have not been there. It's on my list!
  2. Bivio Pizza, Little Falls

    Went last nite. Part of me doesn't want to tell anybody about this! Excellent, authentic pizza in a small lovely space. Enjoyed a fabulous porcini mushroom pie and a margherita. Go now b4 you can't get in!
  3. Bivio Pizza, Little Falls

    New pizza spot opening in Little Falls: Bivio (means "fork in the road" or "crossroads"). They'll be doing authentic Napoletano pizza and fresh bread. The brick oven was imported from Italy. The web site isn't up yet but the URL is www.biviopizza.com . Open Tues-Saturday. This is right in my little town so I'll ck it out & report back. I'll probably do a "first look" posting on my blog when they open & then a fuller review after they've been open awhile.
  4. sounds great! i haven't heard of Taylor Maid - is that a specialty roaster? thx.

  5. Out of the oven bluberry crumble and Taylor Maid decaf. Used smitten kitchen's recipe. Came out too sweet. Will try less sugar and more lemon zest/juice next time.

  6. Memphis BBQ Recommendation

    Hi. NJ eGullet member coming to Memphis nxt wk for the BBQ Championship, but would like to sample some of Memphis' best BBQ spots. Recommendations? Also interested in local breakfast spots downtown. Thanks!
  7. Weekend Trip to SF

    we are in SF now & wanted to give the forum an update. Had dnr at Perbacco the first night - it was very good. 1st course: strawberry & arugula salad w/ricotta salada. Main: pasta stuffed w/Meyer lemon & ricotta & mint. Dessert: Piemontese choc custard w/amaretti & candied cocoa nib. Also "ugly but good" hazelnut cookies. Service was a little stiff; efficient but not very warm Last night we had dnr at Chez Panisse. Outstanding! I will post details shortly. Tonight we are going to A16.
  8. Any recommendations for dinner near the NY Times bldg (W. 41st)? Something a little less cafeteria-ish than Schnippers. Thanks!
  9. ZinBurger

    We went to the preview of the new ZinBurger in Clifton on Dec 11. Burgers were very good. Nice selection of wines by the glass and beers. Service was pretty good for pre-opening. Has anybody else been there since they opened Dec 13?
  10. Weekend Trip to SF

    Wow! Incredible responses - thank you! I love the bakery recommendations (thank you for reading my blog!). Our friends who live in SF also recommended Arizmendi so I'm sure I will get there (along with Tartine and Crixa). I am definitely keeping Chez Panisse on my list -- I think if I didn't go I would regret it later. So we will have two more opportunities for dinners in the SF area and I will review all the recommendations very carefully. I have been to the Slanted Door (which I loved)& Boulevard. Renn: it's funny you mention The Manor in West Orange -- we live about 5 minutes from there. Although we haven't been there for their a la carte dining, we have been many times for weddings, events, etc. However, we have been to dinner several times at their sister restaurant, The Highlawn Pavillion, which is wonderful. Again, thank you!
  11. Weekend Trip to SF

    Hi, everybody. Thanks so much for the great recommendations. I will ck out the ones I am not familiar with (such as Jackson Fillmore). If you come up with other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!
  12. Weekend Trip to SF

    NJ eGulleter planning trip to SF in April for 4 days. Has anyone eaten at Chez Panisse recently? I've had this on my "list" for a long time, but some recent press has been disappointing. Would love recommendations for restaurants we should not miss while we are there. Gary Danko? Zuni Cafe? Michael Mina? Any spots in North Beach? Thanks!
  13. Thanks, Andrew. Great insights into the Savannah food scene. I recently saw somebody else giving high praise to Paula Deen's place so maybe we'll give it a go.
  14. I called Oceanos last wk to find out when they were opening. The gentleman who answered the phone said possibly this wk (July 5). Looking forward to a more casual version of their Fair Lawn spot.
  15. Thanks - I'll add it to the list!
