  • Fresh Pasta
    Can anyone recommend a local italian market in the Park Slope / Prospect Heights area where I can find fresh pasta, ravioli, mozzarella, prosciutto, etc.? I'd even make the trip to Little Italy as long as it's yummy!

    Thanks!

  • Looking for the name of a Diner on Washinton Ave
    I was recently in Brooklyn and I am trying to find the name of a diner that was recommended to me and I ate at. It was a very old school, and was on Washington Ave a few blocks from the museum.

  • Ortine - anyone been yet?
    Slated to have opened 12/17. From NY Mag:
    One thing you can say about Ortine, a Prospect Heights electric-kitchen café, is that it’s decidedly family owned and operated. Sarah Peck, a former Schiller’s and Pastis manager, oversees the herb garden, the kitchen, and the eclectic menu (everything from Belgian waffles to braised short ribs). Her ...

  • Anyone been to the brunch at Clover Club?
    Was there for cocktails and a bite about a week ago and was checking out their brunch menu. I feel that their bacon tasting mandates a brunch excursion.

    Has anyone tried it? Based on the food I've tried there before and the high caliber of their cocktails, I have confidence that their brunch will ...

    I'll be in ecuador for t-giving. the turkeys run around like chickens, which is great and everything. however, no one really eats them and think of them as a novelty item for stupid americans because they're tough little mothers (and like half the size of turkeys here). now, I know how to ...

  • Thanksgiving bird
    Does anyone know of a place in PS/PH/CH that sells good roasted chicken or turkey? Something I could preorder before Thanksgiving, since my kitchen isn't really big enough for all that baking.

    Having the family over for the first time :shock:

    Thanks

    I serviced them a while back (computer stuff), but the owner gave me a free meal to boot.

    While things normally taste better free, I was kind of impressed with size of their shrimp.

  • Pasta recipes? Ramen?
    I want to make pasta tonight. Either something italian (but not boring red sauce) or maybe an asian inspired pasta dish. Only thing is I don't have that much grocery money. So ingredients need to be readily available at the local grocery (not Whole Food-ish) and not high end.

    Any ideas? I'm ...
