Pics of briefcase.
It is an old Bally portfolio, nothing fancy, with his initials embossed. It is very worn and I've had to recondition it. Maybe pics later.
FYI, the Leopard does not do Gattopardo's genovese, although the rest of the menu is 80% the same. In its place, they do a very good carbonara.
My wife has tried making the genovese, but can't quite match how Gattopardo executes. Obviously, you need lots of onions and some sort of fatty, cheap beef (shortrib if you want to do it Gattopardo style), but she hasn't gotten the stew thick enough to coat the pasta effectively.
I gotta hit up Super Taste for the spicy beef.
amen. There's a Cafe Grumpy around the corner too. I'm in the area about once a month so this punk rock singer can cut my hair (just as he's been doing for 5+ years now).
I'm getting a haircut tonight. I get my hair cut every fortnight. While this statement is 100% true, I felt it necessary to bring up because I really wanted to use the word "fortnight."
I like Totto Ramen more than Ippudo, but have not been to Ippudo midtown yet. Don't think the location is going to make a difference though. There are tons of restaurants and bars on 9th ave between 42nd street and about 55th.
Amen, I agree totto is better than Ippudo. The key is the broth.
You guys need to try Hidechan on 52nd and 2nd or thereabouts (after a few pints from Irish Exit). I've read that's owned by the same people who opened up Totto.
Don't you mean Totto > Hidechan> Ippudo?
I've had Hidechan. Extremely underwhelming. The broth is not nearly as aromatic or unctious. The pork is dry. The pork buns suck. And that is with ordering the "intense" broth.
I used chuck. my grandmother always used short ribs but this was long before short ribs were "in" and in those days they were dirt cheap.
Lol i do. Long day. Brain fried.
@ MaFoo, may have been an off day in the kitchen. I would also say the wait time is more reasonable at Hidechan vs totto or ippudo, which makes it more attractive alternative.
How to thicken?
