after having bought tickets WEEKS ago...it's TIME...it's here...Village Voices' 1st Annual CHOICE EATS!!!
What's Choice Eats?
It's when The Village Voice's columnist Robert Sietsema gets together his top restaurants from all of the boroughs and over 1000 foodies line up around the block to pour into the Puck Building to taste and savor until they just can't do it anymore! For $30 Ramona, Jennifer, Jenni and Carol joined me in tasting and trying!! Some things were FABULOUS...some were OK...one was super disappointing.
In the Best category:
Nirvana Cafe & Bar -- Sri Lankan Cuisine -- 218 3rd Avenue, NYC
La Maison du Couscous -- Moroccan Cuisine -- 484 77th Street, Brooklyn, NY <-- this place is worth taking the R out to Brooklyn any day! Tiffin Wallah -- South Indian Vegetarian Cuisine -- 127 East 28th Street, NYC --
Smoke Joint -- BBQ -- 87 South Elliot Place, Fort Greene, Brooklyn,
The biggest disappointment:
Vanessa's Dumpling House -- How can you make pork dumplings that have absolutely NO FLAVOUR? Zip, zero...Nadda. Blah.
Nope...I didn't have the room in my belly to try all of the offerings..but i tried all that I had hoped to and more!!! Yum!!!!
