  • Yummy For My Tummy
    This is for the foodie in you...

    After 6 years living in the Crown , finding good food is still a challenge. Let me rephrase...Finding satisfying, non-West Indian food, is the challenge. Finding a nice, sit-down restaurant is close to impossible. I always have to venture outside of the Crown if ...

  • Finding Chorizo sausage -Mexican style and raw?
    Weekend breakfast hasn't been the same without my chorizo and jalapeno frittadas. Does anyone know where to get real mexican chorizo. The kind that comes in a plastic casting and is all mushy and raw inside?

    Also, does anyone know where to get "Soyrizo," the vegetarian version?

  • Great new bistro in Ditmas Park
    I got to try Pomme de Terre, a new French bistro on Newkirk at Argyle Road (right by the Newkirk stop on the Q and B trains). It's from the chef from Farm on Adderly and the man behind Patois. The restaurant is very inexpensive for the quality of food- entrees would easily be at ...

  • brunch at the Met
    The Met. museum has a weekend brunch that overlooks the park for members this summer. My mom wants to go when she visits, but I'm wondering if it's worth the trek up there when we have so many options near home.

    Maybe they do this every summer. Has anyone gone? How ...

    I had the jerk lamb this weekend. Do you know how incredibly good that stuff is? The stewed chicken is nice and all, but jerk lamb . . . wow.
    They finish it up fresh: jerk gravy, fresh tomato slices and a whole habanero sliced and simmered up with thick slices of roasted spice-rubbed lamb. ...

  • New (?) restaurant on corner of 3rd Ave/9th Street
    Driving up 9th St this weekend I noticed a new-looking restaurant (bar?) on the corner of 3rd Ave (on my right-hand side) - hard to tell what it might be, but it looked reasonably busy.

    Anyone know anything about it? (I did a search but couldn't see it mentioned anywhere).

  • Greek coffee???
    Any coffee shops in PH/PS area that sell really good, authentic Greek coffee (frappé)? Would love something open on the weekend with an atmosphere good for conversation, and must sell iced tea or something for the non-coffee drinkers.

    Looking at some old posts, circa 2005, it seemed like Court St Pastry is the place to get authentic Italian pastries. Is that still accurate? Are there any places in the Slope or Heights that would rival that?
