nick and barbara go to lima...and then so do we

Nick Taylor is a sailor, travel writer, and leading non fiction writer with an instinct for the right book to write at the right time( eg American-made about the depression era WPA ..paperback in February. QED). Barbara Nevins Taylor is an Emmy award winning tv journalist who is known for investigative discoveries. And now for the food Nexus. They went to Peru, discovered and drank Pisco sours, ate shrimp and veggie Causas (mashed potato balls),Peruvian Cerviches, chicken anticuchos (hot green sauce) and aji de pollo(shredded chicken with yellow pepper sauce) ; so we all went to Lima's Taste on Christopher and Bedford and sat in the window and ate some of the best spicy food I have ever had. It is a little dark...a little moody. The waiter was a little dour.
Jeanne and I were alot happy. Keep sailing, friends, and continue to create microcosm replications of your taste experiences.

Mexican joyous hole in the wall Chavella's

732 classon ave bet park pl and prospect place. Plato Don pictured here says it all. This little 8 table cozy spot has spicy not too spicy Elotes corn and cheese stew and guacamole and mole and shrimp and dreams and kindness and wine and beer and patience and aamazing food. One of brooklyn's best Mexican spots. When the snow flakes begin to fall outside the window this becomes a warm hole in which to crawl.

Salami and Ham Boot

Salumeria Rosa has class and style and fine food. Through the window you can see the hanging meats and cheese case.
Once inside you will notice the overhead map of Italia with regionally aligned meat features. The small plates of lasagne or brussel sprouts delight but go for the meat and cheese platters,nice wines and superb service. And say thank you for me
because they were so accommodating as relatives did drop ins. Amsterdam and 73rd st.
