Places we're curious about


Recommended Posts

Motorino - fine but not special-trip worthy. unless you're craving some roasted mortadella maybe. Margherita DOC was the best of the bunch (decent sopressata, ok brussels sprouts/speck, forget the burrata/sausage), but why the hell do they put parmigiano on top? and sauce a little watery. butternut squash app eh.

 

no idea whether the chef/owner was there (it was Monday after New Year's Day), the food did not seem to be prepared with great care.

i guess it's good for the neighborhood though. byo for now.

 

gotta go back to franny's, it's really the only pizza i ever want to go back for. and it's been a while.

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

Tables for Two makes Cafe Select sound unusual at least. Chäschüechile. Flädli. Neither of those means "farm egg", anyway.

 

Any opinions?

 

By the way, I can't resist displaying the full URL:

Goat? Tables? Lyon?

 

Tasty, potentially. :cool:

 

can't remember where i got this from but had saved it as it sounded tempting....

 

SUNDAY HOT CHEESE

Fondue at Café Select

This Swiss cafe transforms into a fondue-only spot every Sunday, with apples and fingerling potatoes ready to be dipped into pots of bubbling gruyere. You'll also get a quarter liter of white wine and a shot of cherry brandy on the side to sweeten the deal. Literally.

411: Sundays starting at 11am, 212 Lafayette St (between Kenmare and Spring), 212-925-9322

i have been and it is very very nice. brilliant idea on their parts. i want them to have full armor before EATALY opens at 250 fifth av. the 60,000 sq ft italian supermarket run by joe bastianich. room for both of course but i want nothing to hamper lou and his dynasty.

I've been as well,and the store has a well selected bunch of Italian wines.Ask Lou about Alto Adige[and their underestimated wines].

the store looks beautiful. nice wines and obviously selected with care and interest. i found a wine i love that i have not seen at any other wine store in the city and also a few wines i'd love to try.

 

the prices don't go super-high, no wines under $15 though
