  1. Picnic is around the corner from me. Christine makes great stuff; I have been there many times for lunch.
  2. I eat well, I really do. And as people of the world go, I should consider myself very fortunate to have had the food experiences that I have had in my life. I've tried many foods in my life including pig's ears, stomach, bear claw, Qi she(white snake), brains and many more things less exotic, but even more delicious. I have tremendous affection for my friend Alanz. He thinks that it is because he is witty or perhaps enjoyable to be around. While that may be true, that isn't it. It's because he gave me one of the singly most satisfying experiences when he slipped me the tongue. I was reminde
  3. I'll chck tomorrow if I recall. It's near my school. If it's the place I'm thinking of, I found it completely unremarkable-sandwich, breakfast, chocolat chaud,etc. Nothing worth describing that I recall.
  4. Went here tonight. Or perhaps more accurately this afternoon, around 5:00. Good time to go. When we left around 5:45 or so, the family "take-it-home for dinner" crowd was kicking up and a line was forming. That enabled me to see where there could be potential problems, although things seemed to be ok at the time. The staff appeared to still be getting it together. They could use a roving person attending to problems that arise;everyone was stacked behind the counter. We had a pork sandwich, a brisket sandwich and half a rack of ribs. We also had four sides-the baked beans, the coleslaw,
  5. Several things this all suggests to me- 1. The number of people again confirms our desire for good BBQ in the area. So I thank Mike and Gary for taking the risk and stepping up to try to fill the void. 2. I think that this may be, as has been noted, adjustment pains-remember this is still only a couple of weeks old. That said, it can be a problem if you get a bad rep from the start for chaos. I think that is the concern of Lima Bean and Picnic Chef, and really is meant to be thoughtful help to the crew there. Obviously there needs to be an adjustment, if it hasn't already been made. If p
  6. Yes that's what I was afraid of. Thanks Larry; try the moist one, it is good.
  7. I didn't find any difficulty with a wait. I went for lunch and for dinner. It was a late dinner so there may have been fewer people on line;everyone may have been downstairs with the music. I found it a fun place. Positives? The brisket: rub was great and meat was juicy;best meat that I tried there. Kreusz's sausage was spicy and delicious. Beef ribs were tasty and pork ribs were good. I agree about the sides; best was the coleslaw. My friend scarfed down the sweet potato bourbon mash; my other friend liked the corn pudding. Negatives? It is more expensive than Texas although one woul
  8. Sorry I missed you guys; I wasn't able to get there until about 3. I didn't actually get any of the pulled pork or the pickles, but I had the brisket, the ribs, the chicken. They were uniformly moist, and the side sauces were good. Got to speak to Mike and want to thank him and Chef Gary. Nice food; you should do well.

    Aquavit

    What the tag line says... What do you guys think of Aquavit now? Worth a visit? If so what do you recommend?
  10. Ok, first time there, so I haven't tried the breadth of dishes but all that we tried was quite nice, especially the shrimp which alone would induce me back. There was a really nice hand on the way the lemongrass was done in that dish. There was no one else there, Christine. Jason, didn't test out the Pho; normally would have, but the sweat of the 102 degrees dripping down our brows discouraged us. Looking back at the old thread, which I had not seen, seems that it may be a case of "hit or miss"; some good, some less so. I'll go back and keep an eye on it and comment more as I found it worth t
  11. Took in a very nice Vietnamese restaurant today. Always a lovely thing to discover a new place! Rather by accident. Headed out to Sabor in Hawthorne for lunch with AlanZ and his son Josh. Well not clear from their website, but turns out they were not open for lunch. Thelunch menu listed on their website applies to their other location in Edgewater. Anyway, we were turned away and contemplating our options on the way back through Ridgewood when we motored past a sign I saw flashing by, "vietnamese food". We turned around and came back to investigate. Turns out to be a little house with a
  12. Hey gonna go up today I think. Does he have a beef rib up yet on the menu, does anyone know?
  13. Bangkok Garden in Hackensack. We went there last night for dinner and they had a soft shell crab special. You could have it three possible ways, including batter fried with a garlic sauce on it with some lovely spinach. Tasty.
  14. You know I have had some disagreements with opinions Menton has expressed in the past(or more exactly he has disagreed with mine) but in this, I am in complete agreement, and offer my full support for his opinion. Harvest is grossly underappreciated here. It is a truely lovely place. Took a friend there on Friday for dinner. Had just a wonderful pan fried snapper and great grilled hanger steak, as well as half a chilled lobster with drawn butter. Nice romantic place to take a date. <s> Unhurried, and the waiter was very respectful of our desire to sit and talk at our own pace. Friend
  15. and they have tapas of gambas al ajillo(shrimp withgarlic) and clams
