3:35 am,
I am opening the bottle to let it breath 'til dinner.
We'll see if the second one is a charm

Serge - why not make one less post each day, and instead insert in its place one more search per day?

You can't even tell reality from sarcasm, can you?

that was sarcasm? I thought it was the second useful and mindful post you have made in this thread. How is your health? You look tense. What are you drinking and what are you listening to?

Got one. Food is excellent and prices are very fair. The only poroblem is that it's a little small and crowded on a Saturday night. We go once a month and have gotten to know the owner well. Probably during the summer when things slow up we can get a group together for a Saturday night. We're going there mañana with the TBirds.


Just one more sip.

Do you mean the Afghan Kebab House? If so, thanks but I'll pass... I don't find Middle Eastern food appetizing.

yes, the one on 63rd street

Afgani is Middle Eastern?

I don't wanna make fun of the poor geography taught in American schools in this thread and offend anybody,
but Afganistan geographically and culinary as close to Middle Eastern as I am close to the blood line of the Chinese Emperor.

I was turned to this place by some friends from eBob, which of course doesn't mean anything.

Thank you,. wagner, you put smile on my face and lifted my spirits even higher. The second bottle of Beaucastel is just EXCELLENT!

Maybe your English reading comprehension still needs work. I didn't say Afghanistan was geographically located in the Mid-East. I said the type of food served (according to this, this,this, etc.) is Middle Eastern. So, General Tso... enjoy your wine.


Go HOKIES!!!

wagner, only 1 out of 3 links you have posted claimed to be Afgani restaurant as "Middle Eastern cusine"

I never been to Afganistan...but I've been to Turkey
http://nocomments.com
(I beleive you know that URL as you kindly pointed to one of the pictures in the past)
Isreal, Greece and if the word of the traveler who have been to Middle East means anything to you,
Afgani cuisine is NOT middle eastern.

I won't dispute this any further, as I am a string beleiver that USA is a FREE country and you have the rights to believe in anything you want. One day you visit Middle East and we'll compare our notes. Deal?

Meanwhile..I ordered 2 more bottles of 1995 Beaucastel to replace the ones which perished, to open them 5+ years from now.
What a wonderful producer!

Because you share the genes and intellect of your famous mathematician cousin, I am sure that this letter will hold a special appeal to you, as it does to all other string believers. Smile

Dear Seaq,
making fun of a typo from somebody whose English is a second language is diminishing to YOU, not to "somebody".

Having 1/2 a bottle of Beaucastel 1995 for lunch is my best defense

Typo??

I thought you really were a string believer. There is room for disciples of ALL alternative philosophies on the internet, and no need to deny it afterwards.

Dear Seaq,
don't you know what happened to Tom Cruise when he admitted in believing to the "alternative" philosophies?
His movies suffered.

Insiniation that I am just like him might hurt my future book sales.
Please say you didn't mean it.

I did mean it, but I honestly hope your movies don't suffer.

The Life and Times of Serge Birbrair... Spielberg must be nervously pacing back and forth right now, in anticipation of getting the first draft of the script.

All 3 list Middle Easter as the cuisine, two of the 3 also list "Afghan" as the cuisine.

Was that this post? I've always considered that to be one of my funnier posts. Razz

I understand that. I was saying the food they make at this particular restaurant is Middle Eastern (as well as Afghan).

Maybe when you come to NYC, you can bring one of those BC you just ordered. Big Grin

I am not coming. I am too old for Zin.

You funny post still sends visitors to WT, who click on Goog ads and make sure I always have a free bottle of wine.
