Had a really nice Hatian taxi driver last night after the Erykah Badu concert (truly amazing!!!) and he gushed and gushed about the Hatian-Creole "La Detente" on 94th Street off the Grand Central. I've passed it a zillion times but never venture in. Any good?
When I lived in Forest Hills (1982-1986), I picked up
takeout once. The operative word is once. I just had a
similar experience at Nakasaki in Hempstead which
served us, "grey food". It was so bad that a member of
our group refused to eat at all after she saw the
food. What they serve at these catering halls is much
too polished and mediocre for true foodies to get
excited about. Another example is Niedersteins in
Middle Village. I never understood why anyone would
want to eat in that catering hall when you could go
down the road to Zum Stamtisch.
