Just got back from 5 restful months in rural PA, and found Palace of Japan closed for renovation. Does anyone know if and when it will be reopening, and what the changes might be in terms of the menu?
Also, we just discovered the Garden Gourmet on Broadway (233rd St.) - WOW!! We could barely breathe, we were so excited. Goat meat, $2.49/lb.! The cheeses! The Ajvar! The deli! How long has that place been there? It was an absolute zoo when we went yesterday evening, but we can't wait to go back and take a closer look after the holiday rush. Any specialty recommendations from the store? Is it a good place to buy meats?
