Sripraphai

 I live in Greenpoint, a Polish neighborhood populated with a large number of unremarkable Thai restaurants. Any of these place are fine if you’re hungry and broke, but if you want a truly delicious, quasi-religious dining experience, you’ve got to go to Queens. 

Almost everything is delicious at Sripraphai but I recommend you avoid the standard Thai take-out fare and stick to dishes like soft shell crab with green mango, fried red snapper with basil and chiles or their famous crispy watercress salad. Go with a big group, order family style and try a bit of everything. You will leave very full and very happy.

Bouchon Bakery

One of the nice things about guest contributing to this blog is that I had an excuse to visit places I have always wanted to go to but never made the time for. I am a bit of a food blog addict and I know that Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery rates very high with New York foodies so my friend Sarah and I trekked up to Columbus circle in the name of “research”. 

I don’t find myself getting excited about a mall very often but the delicious sweets are worth the trip. Keller excels at revved up versions of old favorites like Oreos, Nutter Butters and Ho-Hos. It’s hard to appreciate a good pastries in a mall though, so grab your sweets and walk across the street to Central Park where the ambiance is much, much better.
