Next to Normal-a theater review - 03/29/09 02:22 PM
Booth TheATER 3/09 Some days when I wade through New York City traffic or try to keep my cool when dealing with a mindless bureaucrat, the only thing that makes me stay here is the arts and theatre in NYC. As a member of the Theatre Development Fund (TDF) I go to a lot of theatre, some good some bad and some very special. Last night I went to Next to Normal. A musical about a mother, whose grief at losing an infant son, has brought on a bipolar condition and how it affects her family. The theme of this musical (0 comments)
Eating Cheap on Avenue U Brooklyn - 03/26/09 10:35 PM
La Villita 1249 Avenue U Brooklyn, NY 718 998 0222 If you want a cheap, but interesting family meal Avenue U is definitely the place to go. There are a half dozen Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants, but one Mexican Restaurant La Villita. This small Formica table place has maybe a couple of dozen seats, but what it does have is good inexpensive food. The Guacamole is a fresh yellow green and creamy (Guacamole turns brown almost immediately) and the Salsa fresca is a winner. Warning the regular salsa can be spicy. I had the Mole Poblano, usually made with Turkey, but (0 comments)
cheap eats- triple z - 03/26/09 10:33 PM
Triple Z 1410 Avenue U 718 382 4328 With Ducks and half pigs hanging in the window, there is no doubt that this is an authentic Chinese eating place. There are lunch specials as cheap as $ 4 and the food is very fresh, as there is a major Chinese market next door. A la carte main courses run about $ 10 The green vegetables are done just so and the sauces have none of the gloppiness of a Junior High School cafeteria. You can even get your Chow Fun dry The ambiance is definitely family style, expect to sit at (2 comments)
Lalezar Turkish Restaurant 2715 Avenue U, Brooklyn, NY 718 769 7003
My group of friends decided to go to Lalezar for lunch. Two of us arrived early, and we told the restaurant that other were coming, we were told to take a seat in a darkened dining area. When we were approached by a waiter, we asked that the lights be turned on and that bread and water be brought to us. I was rather aghast when the response was -we will when the others come!?! I should have walked out then, but my friends were meeting us (0 comments)
Primorski- 282 Brighton Beach Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11235 http://primorski.net 718-891-3111 In almost the center of Little Odessa ( a.k.a. Brighton Beach ) is Primorski. A nightclub, known for its copious buffets and flowing Vodka, but they are also open for lunch-or are they??? There was a roof leak and most of the bathrooms were flooded. We were the only patrons and none of us spoke Russian and our waitress spoke no English! Primorski advertises a $6 dollar three course, sit down hot lunch, with soup, salad, main course and coffee it is a real bargain. However, trying to resolve (1 comments)
Times are tough, especially in the restaurant business. Saturday night in Little Italy and there were many empty tables. Grotta Azzurra was doing only slightly better than some other restaurants on Mulberry Street. And the reason is SERVICE. The most frustrating thing is to try to contact your waiter when the restaurant is empty and your waiter is talking to other waiters, but not at Grotta Azzurra. Our waiter was attentive and when he didn't know the answer, he got back to us immediately. The plates came out on time and in good (0 comments)
