only let the inspector into the areas he's supposed to inspect. a lot of times they like to poke around where they aren't allowed in hopes of finding something unrelated. they are only supposed to check out what the permit was for, so don't let him know you were running a tattoo shop on site

Sam, funny you said that. I grew up with tons of great bakeries around me in the 1970s in NYC. But nowadays, all the dough tastes the same. When I happen upon real pastries that taste like real dough, I am stunned. It’s all quantity over quality. Crap flour. Better profits. Worse taste.

John Sebastian should play “Welcome Back” when Andy comes out of a coma. Which means Andy must fall into a coma first. And then John Sebastian needs to be at his bedside RIGHT when he comes out of the corner. The logistics are a tad iffy, but it’s doable.

“But NYC has decent red sauce which I crave a lot, being raised by people in the East Coast tradition.” Happy to hear you say that! But guess what? NYC food bullshit has deemed “red sauce” plebeian. Pretty much every foodie blog in NYC derides red sauce as part of their… I dunno… Being a snotbag?

That's soooo stupid. I'll take a good "gravy" or marinara over a white sauce any day.
Avatar 10:49am dc pat:

to me "red sauce" = New Mexico red sauce made with dried NM red chiles...

Even Mario Batali makes gravy every Sunday he can.

Dammit. I'm going to make red sauce this week.

marinara is fine but I like pesto, walnut sauce, pink sauce too.

I do too, but I crave red sauce!
Avatar 10:52am bibi:

cecile & pat, wont you talk coconut again !!?
  10:52am JakeGould:

Cecile, I agree. But it’s amazing. Here in Brooklyn, in Park Slope they had this great red sauce place called “Aunt Suzie’s” that closed. It was right across this street from this other Italian place called “Al Di La.” Anyway, when the owners of “Aunt Suzie’s” decided to close, the amount of people just taking a dump on them and saying it was a lame “red sauce” place was past belief. The place is now a hipster “dive” bar called “Pork Slope” run by Dale Talde. Artisnanal overpriced—and not not bad, but not worth giving out of your way for—burgers & beer. Lame!
  10:53am JakeGould:

If it weren’t for Mario Batali, red sauce would be a completely dead concept in the NYC foodie world.

@thedunkel: You mean e-mail a GIF so it plays back? Any program can mail a GIF. But to have it play back the end-user’s browser needs to be able to allow embedding of images—not as attachments—in their reader. Which means it’s not going to work. It is best to just send a URL & then the user opens the GIF in a browser & it plays back.

Alesia, red sauce is marinara or other tomato sauce. White sauce is stuff in the Alfredo family. Gravy on the east coast is tomato sauce with different meats.cooked in it
Avatar 11:03am Alessia:

Oh yes I know! My region is asking for independency from Italy, but apparently this referendum won't have any concrete effect, it's just a ridiculous fake to make them happy. Venetian people can be very weird, that's why I moved abroad! :D
  11:03am JakeGould:

I’m actually sick of sandwiches. America & offing carbs all over the place.
  11:05am Cecile:

Alessia, I know it's completely not really Italian, but it's good American food to me.

Pat and with that sourdough you can make "scarpetta" with a good red sauce! It's one of life's pleasures!

Is that bread and sauce? Because that's what I grew up with.

@fleep: 4,200 restaurants in Manhattan? The problem is that most of the good red sauce places are gone. Tons more chains than real places. And the rest are spread out throughout the 5 boroughs.

Scarpetta it's when you have finished your meal but there is still some sauce, so you take a piece of bread and "clean" the dish with it.
Love it! (It's also nice to do with just a good perfumed olive oil and salt)

Eat-aly is a complete tourist trap. You should have gone to Carroll Gardens. They still have decent red sauce places mixed with hipster stuff. The old school italians are still hold string there.
