  1. It’s a bar where wine drinking is encouraged—they have a natural, orange, etc focused list. I think they describe themselves as such. But unless they’ve changed direction, they emphasize tinned fish, mostly Portuguese and Spanish.
  2. The only thing we had that I felt I couldn’t approximate (out of ~8 things) (albeit at 70-80% quality) was the fritter dish—because I’m bad at frying.
  3. I’ve been meaning to go to Sumiao, but since I just returned from China, will wait a bit. Sarma is fine for what it is, but I think one can do nearly as well cooking at home.
  4. Book Culture is great. Check out the discount tables on the second floor. I heard that they’re struggling though... In that neighborhood, Shiny Tea has pretty good bubble tea. Absolute Bagel. Oasis Juice. The Fairway by the river. If you go to Harlem, you should stop at Sidestreet for coffee. They use East One beans, good espresso. Better than Lenox Coffee or Harlem Coffee. Double Dutch is an okay alternative, I think they use counter culture beans. Same with Kurokuma. The ice cream at Sugar Hill is hit or miss.
  5. good tinned fish at tinned fish restaurant haley.henry, though needlessly expensive. per that other thread, wherever it is, i also recommend himalayan kitchen in somerville.
  6. Springdale Pearly Wit: This is some sort of Jack's Abbey collab. 4.8%. Pretty good, really strong green banana flavor I think. But thin. I wouldn't buy it again.
  7. In Somerville. Love this place. Never had a less than excellent meal. Good (but not best) momos, mustard greens, chyoila (a kind of room temperate chicken in chili sauce dish), sukuti (buffalo jerky), thali. Check it out if you're hanging out around Harvard/MIT.
  8. thanks! for next saturday. I did think about kyo ya but wasn't sure either...
  9. 4 people on a saturday night west village, gramercy, east village, looking for a prime time reservation. oof. anything goes though as long as the food is good.
  10. Surprised to find I started this thread what feels like a very long time ago.
  11. The Wedding Present: Ukrainian John Peel Sessions — There are some good tracks but overall, disappointing.
  12. Byrd Brain: Jackie O's/Tired Hands collab., mixed fermentation ale brewed with lemon, salt, black pepper, nutmeg, eggshells, flour, aged on oak for 18 months, 6%. Supposedly inspired by hollandaise? I'm not sure how the eggshells and flour affect this beer, or if they even used more than a negligible amount. Mouth puckering lemon custard, prickly spice on the finish, very creamy. I thought it was great.
  13. A comment on Harlem transportation: great subway access in Harlem to downtown attractions — you're close to the 2/3 4/5/6 A/C/B/D — on a good day, 25 minutes to midtown, 50 minutes to Prospect Park, 1 hr to Flushing. You can also take the M60 to Astoria. Of course, when the trains are messed up, it can be excruciating--but with that many options, it's a rare event. Going to the east village and LES and certain parts of Brooklyn can be annoying. Between 125 and 110 and Manhattan Ave and Malcolm X would be good (not so much for east side museums if you're closer to Central Park) or in the 120s around Malcolm X for a 10ish minute walk to the 4/5/6 for the east side museums. If you're west of Morningside Park (I assume that's what you mean), you'll be right around Columbia and very much stuck on the 1 train (which is slow) or walking to the A/C B/D (susceptible to extreme delays). eta: also, it's really easy to take metro north to the Bronx Botanical Garden, Arthur Avenue area or, if you want to get out of the city for the day, to Beacon for Dia and hiking or other Hudson River destinations. eta: It's nice to get on the B and ride an hour and a half out to Coney Island, walk to Brighton Beach, make a day of it.
