Places we're curious about

Are you serious??????????

 

For one thing, horse meat is illegal in NYS.

Hmmm. One of my friends was talking about such a place. It sounds gross to me but could be considered authentic.

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

Horsemeat sushi I don't know about, but you will find no more forthright advocate of horsemeat tartare - rich, dark and tangy. To be found at Ateneu Gastronomic in Barcelona, for example.

 

Haven't had any horsemeat since I was last in Brussels, though - knowingly.

Reminds me of the new business in the Lanksy Lounge space (yes, that went) - puffed in TONY this week.  To underline the speakeasy theme, they serve cocktails in tea-cups.

 

Sigh.

 

I should tell you the name, but for some reason I didn't bother to jot it down.

It's called The Back Room, although the sign outside says "Lower East Side Toy Company".

 

Those cups are a pain in the ass. We were there on Saturday and I even resorted to drinking bottled beer (which they put in a paper bag) just so I could avoid them.

Maybe if you go on the right night, actors dressed as Keystone Kops bust in, arrest everyone, and lock you in a holding cell overnight.

Do they charge extra for that?

 

I do hate supplements on prix fix menus...

Plenty of good horse in montreal on the other hand. It's legal there, or at least decriminalized.

Uh . . . are you talking about the animal, or, um . . . :wub: ??

 

I can't imagine anyone but the Dutch decriminalizing that.

isn't the u.s one of the largest exporters of horse-meat to europe? or did i just make that up?

Yes. Export is fine. Consumption in the US is not - but it's up to the states. Last time I checked, there were no states where it's legal, iirc.

Canada, France, Switzerland, Belgium, England - I've eaten horse meat in all those countries. Not even uncommon. In Paris there are boucheries that specialize only in horse meat. I haven't eaten horse meat in Italy or Germany, but a little googling just confirmed that it's eaten in those two also - Spain, Austria, and the Netherlands as well. And in Japan, most certainly.
