My Google Map of Normandy Area

Was inspired by a post on another board to try this out. Let me know what you think and if you have anything to add.

  1. I think this is a great idea, especially the pop-up comments for each restaurant. I think I'll start working one one for my area. Go Google!

    1. Thanks Frod. I have been to Sushi Deli. It's one of 2 Japanese grocery stores in S. Fla. All the local Japanese go there. Also try pork katsu with Japanese style curry. Very mild and unique.

      Katana it a kaiten sushi (basically sushi on a belt, floating by)? I have been looking for a kaiten sushi place in a while. I'll check it out.

        One of my favorite treats if I get out of work early is to stop by Sushi Deli to pick up dinner.
        Even better than conveyor belt, Katana has an actual "river" with boats floating on it. Grab what you want and they total up your order by the plates (different color/design plates for different prices).

      2. I agree! This is fabulous. I wish I know how to report this to the chowhound team so that everyone could see this. Would it not be wonderful if there were maps like this this for every town!

        1. This is great. Do you consider Collins in the 60's and 70's part of Normandy? If so, what about including the Argentine bakeries? If you're not familiar with them, I can get names/addresses for you later.

          How long have you been in this area? Does anyone remember Joseph Bakery on 71st St.? How I miss it!

            Put up a post w/ addresses and descriptions and I can add them. The only place I've tried is the churros place at corner of 73rd (?) & Collins, which I thought was disappointing. We've been in Normandy area about 10 yrs but I don't remember the bakery.

              Sorry about the delay. Upon closer inspection the only joint in the 'hood that may merit inclusion is Buenos Aires Bakery - 7134 Collins Ave. A lot of facturas, shortening-not-butter, dulce de leche. I'd drive the extra 5 miles to get to Epicure but this might be of interest to someone. It's your call. Have you been to the burger place on the northeast corner of 74th & Collins? I've heard good things...

              Joseph was run by a Hungarian baker through the mid to late 80's. He made wonderful, delicate pastries (savory and sweet), such as pogasca and dobos torte, from his homeland as well Jewish/American standards. I used to get all my birthday cakes there as a kid.
