Re: “Brooklyn’s 10 Best New Restaurants

Quick comment on Littleneck:
I'll stick to the facts. We made a reservation for 8people (6adults &2kids) for an early saturday night dinner. We all arrived on time and we were shown a booth for 6people. The staffer assumed the kids would sit on someone's lap for the entire dinner service. We quickly said 'No thanks" and we prepared to leave. A short haired blonde woman was apologetic and said they could make it right if we waited a few minutes. So the 8 of us waited by the front door for 15mins and we were shown a 4top (table for 4people)! I wish I was joking. Another waiter (balding guy) said you might be a little tight but it should work. We politely said No Thanks again and walked out. It is a shame common sense is often overlooked as part of "good service"

Re: “The 10 Best Trader Joe's Store-Brand Items

I love the Indian Food as well. I remember reading a bit back that it's made and packaged by the same company that sells the "Tasty Bite" line of foods in other Supermarkets. The Dorot frozen herbs isn't a Trader Joe's produced product though, I've been all about the Frozen Ginger cubes for ages.

People that shell out the crazy amount of money for Jeni's overpriced, not-that-good ice cream are SUCKERS. Plain and simple. We have better ice cream here than most of the country combined.

Re: “Ten Restaurants Brooklyn is Desperately Missing

Why does everyone from Columbus have three names? This is so weird.

Re: “Ten Restaurants Brooklyn is Desperately Missing

I think Jeni might be planning to open in Brooklyn. She's probably heard my Brooklyn relatives, and visitors to those relatives, moan and sigh in envy. Xx2k

Love you Jeni's. Even Colorado doesn't have you yet but we're hoping you come to us soon.

Re: “Ten Restaurants Brooklyn is Desperately Missing

So happy to see Jeni's represented! Columbus residents can also gloat over Brooklynites when it comes to the mind-blowing veggie burgers at NorthStar (some combination of beets, black beans and brown rice that I've never ever seen duplicated) and the insane hot dogs at Dirty Frank's (the "Classy Lady" has potato chips and cheese sauce, the "Ohioana" has sweet corn relish with celery salt, and the feminist proprietor owns three other amazing restaurants all worth checking out, and all super cheap). I also miss the veggie-friendly and health-conscious fare of Cleveland Heights restaurant Tommy's (tuna, mushroom and falafel pita sandwich!), and in Pittsburgh, Kaya's Peruvian fusion (their signature burger has a secret sauce and AN EGG on it). Most days I feel there's nothing more I could ask for in terms of Brooklyn dining, but these locales make me miss the Midwest. Great article!

Art bar isn't too shabby either, if you can stand the paintings.
