Thought we needed a thread on places we walk by, places we hear about, places we want feedback on without starting a thread about it (yet)...   So last night we walked by Lure Fishbar. I love the l

Walked by that newish place Turquoise on E. 81. Nice fish menu - lots of whole fish, and meditarannean stuff. Not wacky expensive, believe it or not. If they do all the fish well, might be nice. N

I went a few months ago. I liked the wings; the potato mochi are good if you don't mind the typical mochi texture. They're served with a sweetish sauce and lots of butter. The place really is small

I believe so...at Dare Devil Tattoos...


Traditionally on Friday the 13th we have a special sheet of designs we work from for the day for $13 and a lucky $7 tip. With the ongoing Covid 19 situation we are limiting the number of people allowed in the shop through the day to those whose turn it is to get tattooed. Please follow us on Instagram @daredeviltattoo for information on what will be available for the day.

Okay, I don't like any of those. And a good thing, too, because it would be par for the course for my "one tattoo is plenty!" rule to be superseded by my "don't pass up bargain!" rule.

The FOMO generation.

Every time I (or we) walk around the neighborhood, there are lines at places; I only wish I knew what some of these places were selling, or doing, or giving away. There's a place on Ludlow between Canal and Hester with bouncers, a secretive door, and it's not a bar, club, etc.

Michael Solomonov’s Laser Wolf is opening in Williamsburg!

And now it’s open. 

Is it a destination? No. 

Would I go again if I had other things to do in Williamsburg? Sure. Maybe. If someone else suggested it I wouldn’t be mad at the idea.

It was reminiscent of a neighborhood place we used to hit now and then when we didn’t feel like cooking, Chou Chou - minus the supernaturally attractive waitstaff, but with much cheffier attention to preparation and seasoning. Good, sure, happy we went. Far better than Chou Chou in the food regard. But are we thinking of going back? Nah.

Side note: the lobby of the Hoxton is weirdly very, very, cold. Like it was 50° out and raining but they had the AC running full blast.

No French tacos yet?

Just spotted the first one in Munich. Given there are only like two places in town to get Mexican tacos I find this kind of annoying.

Coarse. I walked by this sleek little place in the West Village today, and knowing nothing looked it up.

The concept is a spontaneous tasting, no specified number of dishes (can be vegetarian or vegan), about $150.

With no sample menus available, because the concept, I would have to search blogs to find out if it serves food I might like.

Anyone heard about it?
