I would like to be #1 in Authentic Kosher-Style Northern Italian NYC-style Chinese American Cuisine. With a range of vegan and gluten-free options.

Stroganoff.

what she said or slice it thin and make philly cheesesteaks

 

Slice it up, throw it in a sealable bag with some butter, and bring it up to temperature in simmering water to take the chill off. Serve on toast points with chopped herbs and some sauteed onions and mushrooms.

Throw it in a chili. Or mince it and throw it in a thai-style salad.




#1357805 What are you watching?

Posted by OTB on 02 January 2016 - 06:03 PM

Binge-watched first 4 episodes of The Expanse over the weekend. Probably the best hardcore SF series on TV right now. Kind of a mix between Blade Runner, Miami Vice and Battlestar Galactica.

 

Also saw the 3 part adaptation of Childhood's End as well. Also very good, the costume work was incredible.

So now I'm the only surviving member of the Fat Pack.

I guess it's my responsibility now not to lead that lifestyle anymore.

Even Daniel couldn't finish that sandwich.

 

Yeah, that thing is ridiculous. Took Rachel and I like 2 days to eat it.

#1189905 Italian Restaurants in America

I'm so glad I get to stop caring about this shit in about two months.

It's hardly a secret Sandy... I'm moving to Florida.


#1177905 Little Moir's Food Shack -- deserves its own thread

Posted by OTB on 28 January 2012 - 09:46 PM

By far one of the best restaurants in Palm Beach County for the value. Rachel and I always go when we're in Florida.

I love the ability to opine and diss and proffer without specific knowledge or experience.

It's a very Post-Modernist take on food criticism.

:) :)


Refreshing, isn't it. The whole real knowledge or experience thing is so overrated.



The only think I wanna know is if it is Northern or Southern Italian?


And do the bastards use cream in their carbonara.

I'm not going to make any excuses for such a serious service gaffe like that. And I havent eaten at Tuscany. However, have you even -tried- the food at Amici? Despite her issues with the service, which I'm going to have to toss up as purely incidental given the significant positive feedback about the place I've seen on my blog, she enjoyed the food a great deal and made it quite clear it was an excellent value.

So unless you've actually eaten there you're not even speaking from a position to be able to say definitively the experience is "better" as far as food, or service. Ambiance, I'll give you. But everything else you've said is simply your usual contention on anything I have given positive words towards.


You've really got some issues with a persecution complex--- Oh, and BTW, you haven't eaten at BV Tuscany, as you've said. So your argument is moot.


Perhaps I should rephrase this as a question. Have you eaten at Amici or not? Because if you haven't, you are simply projecting pre-concieved notions about it without having any authority to opine on it.

As to Tuscany, I'll try it. I won't hold it against the place you've eaten there.

Serving pizza with gluten to a celiac patient is quite an egregious error, especially with the publicity this disease has received and the general awareness of restaurants to foods with allergens...Some can be life-threatening to the allergic.

For a better experience anyway, as far as food, service and ambiance, travel 10 minutes down the road to this highly rated place in Teaneck, BV Tuscany. Some of the best food of the Ital-American ilk in this area.
