Ordering Dinner in NYC
Even with central air, it is often just too hot to cook in summer in NYC. I make a lot of salads, and just recreated a sushi sandwich, based on one from ‘snice.
If we still want to eat in our garden, we resort to take out.
Allmenus.com allows us to clean out our drawers and throw away all those battered menus. The site has dozens of restaurants in my area, with menus, reviews and specials – a free soup or extra discount.
And if you follow allmenus on twitter (@allmenus) you can score extra discounts.
Allmenus has thousands of restaurants in over 200 cities, so it is also a great resource when you are traveling and can't find a restaurant.
For locals if you comment below, you can win a $20 gift certificate from Signpost, good for any Allmenus NYC restaurant.
Sushi sandwich (for one):
3-4 strips spicy nori (I used Annie Chun’s)
3-4 slices firm tofu
1 multigrain wrap
Spread wrap with avocado. Lay nori on top, then tofu. Roll, slice in half and eat.
You can add sliced cucumber, pickled ginger and more wasabi.
