Mmmmm - The PotSticker in SanFran. Best chinese food I ever had. It was so cool to watch the little old chinese lady make all the dumplings by hand.

I've experienced some fantastic of each -- but when thrown all together like that, seemingly out of context -- it can be interpreted as just regular ol' pizza, chinese foodk, etc. Which would be kind of crap. I didn't get the feeling from your post that you were talking about the really good stuff.

But if that is what you were talking about, then I look forward to those things too.


I wasn't necessarily referring to myself as culinarily sophisticated in the other post. But I do consider myself a foodie - a minor one, but a foodie. I enjoy, experience and appreciate fine food on quite a regular basis -- at home, at other places here, and around the country.

I would agree that there are some excellent Italian places in NY, and would add that you also find an awful lot of horrible "red sauce" Italian restaurants in the general NY area, especially in the burbs and outlying areas.

Thanks for your help Chest. I don't think I need any help though. Have a nice day :)

That's nice. Again, you could have fooled me from your many weekly menu's you post. Shrug.

Between trying to get the painter in and out of here by noon (so I have a prayer of getting some sleep before work), and some appointments I had on the mornings once the painter was finished, and some outside chores (like mowing the lawn) that desparately needed doing because between rain and using my face to stop the street from slamming into my brain, kept being delayed, it's been all I could do this week to get my coffee made for work and a PB&J made for dinner.

However.

Oh, I am not saying there are "good" places all over. I actually LOVE an Italian Restaurant in Bermuda and find their ravioli to be the best I have ever had. Ask anyone who has moved from my area though and the first things they want when they come back is pizza, chinese food, bagels, pastries....It is just not the same.

That's kind of confusing that you are comparing your weekly menu of sausage and hamburgers to Savca's.
