Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

Grades for Street Food

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Re: “‘F’ For Failing Falafel?” (April 1): and what about the underlying flaws with the Department of Health’s rating methodology, Councilman Garodnick? The standards by which the department grades street carts are completely arbitrary and oftentimes have nothing to with actual health violations.

For the Dogs

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Re: “Behold the Humble Mutt” (Susan Braudy’s Diary, April 1), there is much to love about mixed breed dogs, but nothing is black and white like a Dalmatian’s spots.

Written by admin on . Posted in Opinion and Column

To the Editor: Re: “Where Has All the Moo Shoo Gone?” (Feb. 25)—terrific article! I had a fabulous old school Cantonese feast at Jing Fong Restaurant at 20 Elizabeth St. in Chinatown the other night, at the Asian Jade Society’s annual dinner dance.
