What are NYC folks doing to brave the storm? I decided not to go in to work today, but usually I try to choose a restaurant within a couple of blocks of my office for delivery in bad weather. I’ve never had a problem getting places to deliver, either - NYC delivery people are tough! There’s a great Turkish restaurant on west 57th St. called ABA Turkish - they have a fabulous rendition of Ali Nazik, a mixture of yogurt and grilled eggplant, topped with spicy ground lamb. It’s one of my favorite cold-weather dishes.
In my old neighborhood in Queens, weather like this would mean cleaned-out grocery store shelves for sure. We lived in a neighborhood with a large Hispanic population and it always gave me a chuckle to see the tortilla case emptied before the bread/milk/eggs.
Today I’m prepping for a brunch I’m hosting on Saturday - making pizza dough and cinnamon rolls, and trying not to bust into the mimosa makings!
