Recommend me some good LES/Chinatown spots please. There's been a bunch of new places popping up and I'm looking for new places to eat.

I had Morgenstern's Ice Cream recently and it's pretty good. Out of all of the new artisanal ice cream shops popping up in the city, this one is actually pretty nice and has some unique flavors. I liked the Black Coconut Ash from there.

I second Taim for my favorite falafel, El Castillo de Jagua (either the Grand St or Rivington locations) for solid Dominican food, & Lam Zhou (I like the Beef Brisket Hand pulled noodle soup & fried dumplings (the best IMO)

I'll add my frugal recommendations (Chinatown heavy cause it's close & I'm cheap):

Coppelia - 24 hr diner in Chelsea for Cuban-ish/Spanish food & bar - Loma Saltado is very good and solid/inexpensive breakfast
Yakitori Taisho - Japanese Yakitori spot in St Marks. Pretty solid for Japanese barbecue & beer food. Small space though
Kossar's Bialys - Their bagels and bialys are solid, aim for AM for maximum freshness. They had a big renovation recently & I noticed they added a bunch of stuff to their menu. Doughnut Plant is next door too.
Banh Mi Saigon - My favorite Vietnamese sandwich (get the #1 spicy)
Pho Grand (#1 big bowl pho or any of its variations are good, grilled pork chops are great)
Nom Wah Tea Parlor is official for all day made to order dim sum. I brought some friends there and they enjoyed themselves & it was inexpensive.
Xing Wong BBQ - Cantonese roasted meats (duck, pork) are good here and Peking pork chop are good.
New Wong Rest Inc - Brother restaurant to Xing Wong on the same street. They make my favorite Cantonese breakfast food like congee (rice porridge) and fried crullers. Get the Zhaliang (fried cruller wrapped in a rice noodle roll)
Green Bo Restaurant - good Chinese restaurant (I like the Stewed Beef Noodle Soup)
Bo Ky Restaurant - Teochew Chinese food - My favorite is the Curry Chicken Noodle Soup with Ho Fun (broad rice noodles)

Some of the spots I listed are in Chinatown but here's more

LES
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken (when it's late at night and you want fried chicken but Popeyes is closed)
Boilermaker (for their burger)
Cheeky Sandwiches (for their biscuit and fried chicken sandwich and shrimp po' boy)
Kitty's A-Go-Go (for the Bisgel and fried chicken)
Speedy Romeo (The King Salami or Paul's Boutique)
Sunny and Annie's (for their Pho Sandwich)


Chinatown
99 Favor Taste (for the all you can eat Hot Pot/BBQ)
102 Noodles Town (for the best Pork with Thousand Year Egg congee (their Wonton Noodle Soups are also great))
Hop Shing Restaurant (for the Baked Roast Pork Bun "Cha Siu Bao")
May Wah Fast Food (for the Pork Chop Over Rice or Chicken Leg Over Rice)
Tai Pan Bakery (for all the different egg tarts)
West New Malaysia (for the Lychee Ice, Curry Beef Brisket Noodle Soup, Roti Canai, Hainanese Chicken On Rice)

You also have Bo Ky listed but the real stand out in that restaurant is the Country Style Duck (best in Chinatown), if you haven't tried it, get it. I usually get half a duck but can easily do a whole because it's so good!

Fuck this is brutal. Goes back to the discussion a few pages ago about the fashion industry being a shitty place to work.

Roll it around your tongue a bit, see how it feels.

 

Probably shitty.

Coffee:
Kaffi Vinyl
Reykjavik Roasters

Other:
Micro Bar
12 Tonar (records)
Lebowski Bar (big lebowski themed bar with good burgers)

Definitely hit up Microbar if you're into beers, lots of Icelandic craft beers.

Tapas Barinn for food

Harpa (probably already on your list). There's a little hotdog stand in a parking lot near Harpa that's good for a snack.

I think Sruli Recht's workshop/store closed down? But the harbor area is worth walking around.

Better keep that Schneider neat and maybe you'll catch T Swift's eye on those RI sands

What are the good plain toe bluchers with a chunky running type sole? I know Prada and Jill sander have some but out of my price range.
post #11231 of 13803
Yuketen has some but not sure if they're still sold @Coldsnap.
post #11232 of 13803

Just got back from New York, big shout out to @cyc wid it and @willy cheesesteak. Little Prince was amazing. Didn't get a chance to go to NMWA but popped by the Patrik Ervell studio and even met the man himself - though he declined to take a picture with me :embar:

Maybe Alexander McQueen?  A pic of what you are looking for might help.  Do you mean a new balance type of sole?

post #11234 of 13803
Let me guess, this type of sole? I don't know the proper name for it, but they were really popular a few seasons (years?) ago.
