As I am planning to spread the gospel of Ed's to a friend who has yet to eat here, I realized that I had misplaced a copy of GWiv's translated menus. The link from a prior post (http://www.sptsb.com/ed.htm) seems to not be working in this morning hour. Would someone with a copy mind to post it to the board or direct me to the working link? Thanks in advance.
And while I've got you here...
Any new dishes to try? I feel like my meals at Ed's are always "pork-heavy." Maybe because I always require the regular potstickers, the soup dumplings, and the scallion pancakes! Please advise on anything you've had recently that you have enjoyed (not a huge seafood or placenta fan).

And on another note (I don't remember discussion of this yet):
The wood-burning oven at Follia churns out excellent, authentic pizza. During a trip through Europe a few years ago I ate pizza in every city I visited. My favorite spot, believe it or not, was in Nice at someplace on the water. The pizza at Follia instantly took me back there. It had extremely fresh and bright flavors, a crust that complemented but did not dominate the sauce and cheese, and topped with a few leaves of peppery basil and a splash of fruity olive oil. IMHO, better than Pizza DOC. And at 10 dollars for a Margarita, the thought of pairing the pie with a bottle of red, sounds like a repeat visit is in order. BTW, the pastas were great and so was a dining companion's steak, but certainly not the relative bargain that the pizza was. The oven is out front for those in the dining room to see the pizza being prepared by hand ona granite surface so there is no doubt burning wood was nuturing the development of my dinner. Finally, we went on a weeknight when street parking was a free breeze, reservations were unneccessary, and conversation was easily held. I found the place (at least on a weeknight) to be less pretentious than metromix reviews would lead you to believe- I guess you take a deserved hit when the front of the place has manniquins modeling couture fashion.
