Restaurants & Food / Re: NY Times: Taqueria El Sinaloense

That's interesting writing for sure. Can't decide what to make of some of the comparisons, but the photos of food in the main article look good.
What do they mean in the headline, 'worth an early trip?' as in 90th St is known for shootings and stabbings??
if that's what they meant, those happen at all hours!

It's because they run out of some kinds of food.

"The Sinaloan dishes on the menu sometimes run out by nightfall. It’s worth coming early for frijoles puercos, almost more pork than beans, embedded with nubs of chorizo and possessed by chipotle. The beans taste of smoke and brine, leached from green olives, with a touch of velvet from melted cheese."

 If people in apt buildings truly take the time to understand how this will be done, they would most likely sign up. Not only
does it make an asset (compost for NYC )out of a liability (wet food garbage with methane emissions) but it makes your
total garbage collection much smaller and cleaner. You use less bags as dry garbage doesn't need changing as much. It's all
great once you implement the system. Noting that buildings in the Gramercy Park area are using them now which is great
to see.
 Plus NYC has been able to sell some of its compost in Staten Island which is where we used to dump everything till it got
out of control. A check back to NYC for food garbage turned compost!

 Saw a sign today at Lali Guras restaurant for a space indoors for $250. It's right on the counter when you first walk in at
37th Road and 76th Street.

If the horns honked inside the car as well, you’d see how quickly it would quiet down.

I just read this follow-up story from the New York Post about the woman who was attacked recently in the neighborhood.  Apparently, the attacker had spotted her after she made a stop at a local check cashing place.

Woman recalls fight with armed mugger she dragged from building

“Everything was so fast,” Mayra Montoya recalled to The Post from her Jackson Heights home. “He didn’t say a word, he just grabbed me from behind. So I thought he was trying to hurt me. And in that moment I just thought, I gotta fight.”

Montoya, 39, had just gotten home after stopping at PLS Check Cashing on Roosevelt Avenue, where she believes he first spotted her and followed her for more than two blocks before attacking.

MrPlaza, I don't have a sitter to recommend, but if you aren't already on the JH Families Listserv (a yahoo group) and/or the JH Moms Facebook group, you might want to join those too and re-post this there as most of the chat about kids in the neighborhood happen there.   Someone just posted about their former au pair looking for baby sitting work - send me a PM if you'd like me to forward it to you.

even if BYOB is illegal in NYC, I don't see how that stops a restaurant from opening up even if it takes longer to get a liquor license. I know selling wine, beer, and cocktails is a money maker for a restaurant, but it's not a requirement to open. You'll make more money selling food without booze than selling nothing at all. I don't think the liquor license is the issue for these restaurants that are taking a lifetime to open.
