Overheard on the New York Boards

"I find myself making excuses to drive there. We were there last week and tried the palmier. It was buttery, crispy and just the right amount of sugar. The almond croissant was freakin' out of this world. ... Maybe next year I'll give it up for Lent." - Da Vid on Cannelle Patisserie

"The broth is deeply flavorful, with a hell of a spicy kick—the kind that clears your sinuses and, quite honestly, verges on the painful and unpleasant. ... This is also a one-pot meal that's good for the soul. Everything that's good about life is in that bowl: crab, huge chunks of both bone-on and boneless chicken, collagen, beef, and a huge, light green pepper right in the middle. ... This soup is not for the dainty. It's more like a messy Viking meal—you'll be grabbing paper napkins off the other tables." - Polecat on Liberian-style pepper soup at Maima's

"Some key soccer boulevards would be Court Street and 18th Avenue (Italy) in Brooklyn, 37th Avenue / Roosevelt Avenue—Jackson Heights (Latin American, Uruguay, Argentina, etc.), Ferry Street in Newark (Portugal & Brazil), and the list goes on and on. How about West 32nd Street for Korea? Lots of spots for Mexico. Upper East Siders might be pulling for England or USA or Germany—and I don't have to tell you how many viewing choices you'll have. Don't just freeload and watch, order food and some signature homeland drinks!" - Mike R. on where to watch World Cup soccer
