Any recommendations for good fried plaintains (not the crispy kind like potatoe chips, but the wonderful ones that are browned on the outside, and soft and sweet on the inside) and picadillo? Years ago when I lived on the UWS (and I mean the 70's - so I am sure it is not still there) there was a great place on BWAY at about 108th. The picadillo was a spicy stew of ground beef, with nuts, green olives and raisins. I will be visiting over Thanskgiving and would love to find a facsimile - preferably chelsea, w village, theater district, or UWS - although if you have a favorite elsewhere, I would love to hear about it.
