Neighborhood Chat / Jussie Smollet

From the beginning myself and my partner were skeptical of his claims - something just didn't add up.  It looks like his charade is finally over. I am also beginning to think the letter that he said was sent to him is also part of the charade.  False accusations will only make  it harder for real victims to come forward and get justice.  I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

yes, the rent thing. this is not something *most* people would be into, but it is something that people would head to if they knew it was there.

I suppose I would argue that it is not as niche of a thing as you may be asserting. I truly think a ton of people are interested in eating cleaner in this day and age.

Our service will take place at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights, 37-06 77th Street, Jackson Heights.  After the service, we will have our pot luck supper and then join in a conversation with Beth Miller, Liaison to Jewish Communities for the NYC Commission on Human Rights.  For more information, visit https://jhtikvah.wordpress.com/2019/02/20/potluck-shabbat-february-22-630-pm/

just curious, Michael:

you're a new user who's posted pretty exclusively on this topic and seem to have a good grasp of the neighborhood and the culinary concept....are you pondering opening a spot, perhaps?


Honestly, not at all. I lack the aptitude, drive, or patience to be a business owner.  Not my forté in the least.  My lady lives there and I often crave something along these lines in the neighborhood when I’m there.  And I had (have) a suspicion that there are many who feel the same. I think someone could have a successful go at it.

dog you don't even live in the neighborhood and you're trying to muck it up with focus-less places like create?

at least move here before you try and homogenize the neighborhood.

why does every neighborhood have to be the same? if you want this to be brooklyn than just move to brooklyn? if you can't afford brooklyn than make your health bowls at home. you can call it the 'brooklyn bowl'

Interesting.  NIMBY fear concerning a bowl of quinoa/acai.

I do think Caffe Bene on 37th Ave sells these "Brooklyn/Astoria style" bowls.  But I've never tried them so can't speak for their quality.  Has anyone tried them?

Cafe Benne is alright. They have some decent options for sure. The one in JH is actually probably the best one I have been too.

Dog....I had a feeling somebody would eventually somehow take offense at the notion of literally one healthy type takeout spot.  Nobody is trying to homogenize anything. I have a gut feeling that you are very much pro-diversity. Well, diversity includes a diverse group of people and diverse businesses.  If one establishment (that people of all backgrounds would certainly enjoy) were to hypothetically open, and that somehow would hypothetically bother you...then you are not really into diversity. 

Relax and understand that I feel it’s important for people of all socioeconomic backgrounds to have conveniently located options for fuel that they put in their bodies.  It’s truly nothing more than that.

got it. it was just an idle question. i do think there's room for what you're craving, but i think it is a niche market and might have to open in a less-trafficked, less high-rent space. maybe a side street a la E77 or Dosa Delight (a favorite that *can* be healthy if navigated properly) or the stretch of lower 35th where Legends is.

The stretch where Legends is would be incredible. That’s where she lives haha. Why do you think a less trafficked area like that would work better though?  Cause of rent simply?  I would have thought the opposite...
