Ill-advised Bay Ridge Binge and Stuff Spotted After

Niko McBrain | Jul 17, 2003 06:03 PM

After a dozen afternoon 86th Street pints and an equal number of shots of Rumple Minze, I thought I'd better be getting home. I stumbled up 5th Ave in the direction of home, seeing several new places en route. Did not stop in any, as I had wet my pants and vomited down the front of my shirt. Did not want to risk an incident in anyone's shop.

First saw ChopStix, on 5th a block or two north of 86th. The chef claims to have all manner of qualifications (which mean sweet Fanny Adams to me), and the menu is online (

On 78th and 5th is Catch-a-Crepe, which also billed gelato. Again, I didn't try anything on offer.

Replacing the Who-the-fuck-ever-eats-there Italian place next to Bahry Seafood on 86th between 5th and 6th is Yassmine Moroccan. I can only read part of the menu I grabbed, as my urine caused the ink to run, rendering the type illegible. I can however report that the spinach with olive and preserved lemon appetizer is $3.50 and that their phone number is 718 680 5803. Oh, and they claim to have a website (, though it's not up yet.

I leave it to you lot to try them.
