  1. They tasted a lot like regular (but really good) hushpuppies. I googled to jog my memory and found that the NYT shared Market Table's recipe.
  2. I'm surprised to find that one of my favorite NYC restaurants doesn't have its own thread here. Market Table is one of my feel good restaurants. I have never been to Market Table and seen an empty table so there's a nice buzzy energy. The cocktails are excellent and the food menu, which is updated regularly, never disappoints. As I blogged about here, the service is truly thoughtful. On one visit, our server heard my friends and me say we were sharing all of our dishes so they arrived plated as such. Given its size and popularity, reservations are all but required.
  3. It's my favorite. Such good food. I blogged about it here if you'd like to read. And now I'd very much like some Lilia cacio e pepe fritelle.
  4. Anyone eat in Mobile within the last year? I'm heading to town on biz in a few weeks.
  5. Devastated. We emailed two weeks ago when I was in DC briefly and spur of the moment, but didn't manage to meet up. I knew we were going to lose him, but not so soon.
  6. My friend and I braved the wait - about an hour - and it was worth it. Several days post-meal, I keep thinking about the food. What we ate: Pretzel pork and chive dumplings (shared) Kung Pao chicken wings (shared) Hong Kong style noodles with short ribs, peanut and Thai chili relish (my entree) Wonton noodle soup with pork wontons, pork belly, bitter greens, six minute egg (my friend's entree which I did not taste) The wings were so good we forgot to dip them in the buttermilk ranch dressing that accompanied them. The dumplings were dumplings (I love all dumplings pretty much). My noodles were full of flavor and kick. My friend wasn't feeling well (unrelated to the food) so we didn't stick around for dessert, sadly. I can't wait to go back.
  7. Good tips above. I love both Lupa and Maialino. Closer to the tree, I like Vitae. Prime Meats. Steak but not only steak. On the west side, Molyvos (Greek/Med) is great.
  8. Lasagnette? Thank goodness. Glad to hear the good news about a new spot. I have so many great memories of my meals at Dino.
  9. Dead Rabbit is an experience. I loved it (then again, I wasn't paying). I also like the Lobby Bar at Bowery Hotel. So cozy on a winter evening whether you sit at the bar itself or in the lounges just outside. On my last visit I saw both Pat Carney of the Black Keys and Leonardo DiCaprio.
  10. Too late for this time but I second the Hale & Hearty Soup rec. 35th and 7th is probably the most convenient location. My go-to order is a soup/half-sandwich combo. I love the turkey and avocado with walnut pesto sandwich.
