Sell outs/things that sell out fast

If you don't get in gear early you will miss the chilled Xian noodles at Gene's Chinese Flatbread Cafe in Chelmsford. Everybody knows that if you don't beat the long line at Galleria Umberto on Hanover the chance of getting an arrincini evaporates by 2. (You still can't get near a cronut at Dominique Ansel in NY unless you get in the queue by 0 dark 30).

What sort of delectable commodities do we have that are in demand and short supply in our neck of the woods? Tell me your go to's, hideaways, keepers of culinary flames.

  1. The burger at Craigie on Main. Only a limited number each night and only at the bar.

      There are also a limited quantity of burgers at Drink. Only at the bar there, too. ;-)

        I hear the "secret burgers" at Alden & Harlow are limited and sell out as well.

      2. The bagels at Cutty's based on reports here lately.

        1. Union Sq donuts has denied me. Early bird bakers!
