  1. Oh. Never mind my recommendations then. Have fun!
  2. I'll recommend my favorite restaurants: Ssam Bar Noodle Bar (the menu has been a bit abbreviated recently, but if you have room for a huge and delicious kimchi stew, this will fit the bill wonderfully) Degustation Casa Mono Tia Pol Otto (the olive oil coppetta is my favorite right now) Redhead Ice cream at shake shack. The B-line is shorter than the main line. It moves a little slow, but it's okay. Also: PDT Death & Company

    Really? I must have missed that. I didn't notice anyone sitting on both sides of the counter (close to the door). I only saw that at the counter that's close to the kitchen. (Those peninsula seats are gone now)

    Ssam Bar

    I think that only the side closest to the kitchen has the seats that can have people facing each other - Possibly 12 or 14 people can sit this way. It looked like the rest of the counter had staff behind one side and seating on the other side.

    yes - i am able to sit with myself on the same side of the bar.
  6. I've been to this place many times!!! Practically once a week for that goose liver! I don't know how I'm still alive!

    I thought that Jezebel's was in Clinton/Hell's Kitchen? I thought it was more New Orleans-ish? I may be mis-remembering though...

    As much as I love the Jala-piña™, I have a hard time ordering anything but the Gibson. I will definitely try that one!

    I can confirm that the bloodless mary is back on the menu. It's good but I think I like the jalapina the best.

    I haven't had the dish yet. It's useful information for me to hear if someone doesn't like the trout because.... maybe he just doesn't like trout in general? Thought it was overcooked? Didn't like something about the preparation? Then their post is useful to me. More information helped. I totally understand Nathan's point. One thing I've been noticing though (via the benton's old fashioned at PDT) is that the smokiness of bacon can vary tremendously. This may cause bacon to overpower other flavors of a dish one day but for the dish to be more balanced in flavor another day.

    I haven't had it yet - curious to hear the debate.

    Wouldn't it be helpful to provide more explanation for that perspective? Seriously. I totally don't get the value of "it's still not a good dish" unless you provide some more info.
  13. When I was in Prague I didn't enjoy the food, but found it interesting from a novelty perspective. Those big wet dumplings... Just very interesting. Hungarian food is also kind of wet. But I liked it more. That was where I started eating spaetzle
  14. I used to live at 2 Kalvin Ter on the Pest side. If I'm remembering correctly - Kalvin Ter is 1 or 2 stops into Pest on the blue line? Walking distance to Fovum (sp?) Ter where you'll find the best market in the city. Even if you don't have a kitchen to cook anything in, it's fun to walk around that market. Advice: don't touch anything. You'll have to buy it if you do! I remember getting some good savory donuts (Langos?) in the upstairs of the market. You can eat it, drink a beer at 10:30am and watch the shoppers below. Usually there's some crazy person yelling somewhere in the ma
  15. I do too. I always expect that next work out to be extremely tough, but then I find it's one of the better work outs that I've had in a long time.
  16. BBC is reporting at least a 100 dead. BBC. I just saw that there are 149 dead. Very, very sad. A nightmare.
  17. I have an extra joker in my deck.
  18. On the Tia Pol thread I remember someone (maybe thunk?) posted a recipe for an Andalusian gazpacho soup. It's medium thickness - the soup does get strained through a chinois, I believe.
  19. My company has been sponsoring a pedometer challenge. In the past 6.5 weeks, I've walked 510 miles!
  20. From wikipedia: "'Bagel' is also referred to as a Yeshivish term to one who sleeps 12 hours straight." Stone? :lol:
  21. I read this post and suddenly I don't want to read anything anywhere anymore. After I just responded I reread SethG's post and had the same exact feeling!!! Eeeeuuuwww.
  22. But that's the thing - a lot of the bagels that I've had recently (and I have to say - I don't eat bagels very often) have had really big holes. Ridiculously big. And so then I have to worry about seepage from the outer perimeter and seepage from the inner perimeter. And that's just plain silly - I'd like to focus more on eating than on being neat. With a smaller hole, there is a smaller perimeter and then there is less seepage.
