Has anyone tried Family Recipe yet? Looks promising.
231 Eldridge St, New York, NY 10002
Yeah, it's a good little neighborhood place. I find the food there is much better dining at the resto than getting delivery - some things just don't travel well in takeout containers, though I understand restaurants wanting to expand their options any way they can in this economy. But it's a cute place, food is tasty, bright and fresh. Nice place to have in the 'hood.
I think Oliverstreet meant "deliver" as in "living up to the promise of the menu descriptions" rather than "bringing things to your apartment in little containers".
I think this is a cute place that's interesting and fun. It definitely is NOT major-league. It is NOT worth traveling to. It IS worth dropping into if you're around.
I watched the chef lose in the final of a chopped episode to someone from NOLA (owner of Boucherie which we like a lot). She did a great job on that one
