I just wanted to post (and feel free to move this if you don't think it's the right place, but it's where I usually post) a recommendation to subscribe to Jim Leff's Chow Alert. Yesterday I went to a place that had been recommended therein. To say that this place is unknown is an understatement--when I tried to do a web search (I wanted to call and make sure they were open on Sunday) I could find not a single mention of it. Food was amazing (I followed Jim's recommendations exactly) and dirt cheap (two of us stuffed ourselves for $10), and the restaurant serves a cuisine that many, many people on this board complain they cannot find good renditions of in New York (hint: the country to the south of ours).
This is completely unsolicited. I don't know Jim and I've never even attended a Chowhound get-together, but I felt that the price of my subscription paid off right there.
