Hi everyone. I am new to NYC (moved here from Montreal) and just recently discovered this board. I am really happy to know that I have found a pack of fellow Chowhounds!! I subscribed to the Chownews sight unseen, and hope it pays off.
The point===> Boy did I screw up royally by moving to Riverdale! I read the recent post about Russian Food in Riverdale, and I couldn't agree with it more. I am amazed at the dearth of good food in the Bronx and Upper Manhattan. I'm without wheels, and feel like I'm serving a prison sentence, being deprived of all the good eats that were so easily available in Montreal. Lower Manhattan is a real schlep, and the other boroughs...fuggetaboudit!!
Anyone around here want to share tips and treats? Didn't see much from the last 500 or so threads (the Bronx dining guide is nowhere to be found). We could start a thread that is a little more up to date. I have a (very) few finds that I'd like to trade.
PS: I'm happy to give anyone tips on good Montreal Restaurants.
