My Most Favorite Food


This past Thursday I had lunch at My Most Favorite Food (247 W 72nd St, between Broadway & West End Avenue; New York, NY 10023Tel: 212.997.5130), with owner Doris Schechter and Karen Brooks. MMFF is a classy, dairy eatery where I had already stopped for breakfast before.

My Most Favorite Food ambiance is warm and friendly, perfect for a nice meal. I settled in the Garden Room, at the back. One of the brick walls was lined with artwork depicting desserts, the view itself is beautiful with some trees and bushes peeking in through the glass, the brick walls perfectly match the building behind the garden, all tastefully done! Whenever I’ve gone there for breakfast, I always sat in the enclosed front, watching the various types of people passing by, imagining their lives, would have been a great pastime, except the food’s always been too delicious to allow for such distractions.

I started out with a Grilled Salmon Ceasar Nicoise, sprinkled with parmesan shavings. The salmon was very fresh and tasty. The parmesan was strong enough to be noticed, a delightful accompaniment to the salmon, croutons and lettuce.

I followed with a superb Kale Soup, creamy and delicious. But my sweet tooth got the best deal…

The Strawberry Shortcake was very good indeed, but it was only a warmup for what was to come next…

Though the photo above fails to do them justice, the selections that followed were a study in creamy decadence at its best: Carrot Cake, Cheese Cake, Chocolate Truffle Cake and my favorite of them all, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake!

The espresso coffee tasted like the best I’ve had in Italy, very authentic. As always, service was friendly and attentive. Now that I’ve enjoyed breakfast and lunch, I’ll just have to come back for dinner and pair a fish dish with some great wine. Meanwhile, I’ll have to try their boxed lunches, come to think of it they’ll make nice picnic fare on a family outing.

There is one thing I wish could be overcome… the noise level was rather high. Overall the experience was well worth it and yes, gentle reader, I’ll be back again and again.

Tomorrow Evening’s Radio Show with Chef Alexandre Petard


Tomorrow evening, at 8:00pm (Eastern  Time) on The Kosher Scene Radio Show we will be talking with Chef Alexandre Petard from Ladino – Tapas Bar And Grill.

Chef Alexandre speaks to us about his training, his love of cooking, the various countries where he worked, the famous kosher and non kosher restaurants in New York whose kitchens he directed, and about the philosophy behind Ladino, his newest venture. Above all, you will hear more than you would expect from just a one dimensional chef. As he speaks with passion about his art, a whole portrait of the man behind the Chef’s jacket emerges.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, why not listen to our last broadcast? We spoke with Doris Schechter from My Most Favorite Food. Mrs. Schechter came to this country in a transport organized by the legendary Ruth Gruber when FDR, in an effort to court the Jewish vote, allowed 1000 Jewish refugees to come to this country and escape the ravages of WWII in Europe in 1944. Since then this Holocaust survivor, who arrived on these shores as a young girl, went on to become a successful restaurateur and cookbook author in NYC.

Please listen in tomorrow evening at 8:00pm (Eastern Time) for an interesting talk with Chef Alexandre Petard.

We’ll be wait’n for ya!

Today’s Radio Show


This afternoon at 5:00 pm (Eastern Time), we will talk with Doris Schechter of My Most Favorite Food on BlogTalkRadio.com. Doris arrived on these shores in 1944 as part of a transport of refugees from Europe and as a guest of President Roosveldt. She eventually opened up My Most Favorite Dessert Company and in time moved her enterprise to its present location where it became a full service restaurant, combining a bakery and a cafe (beautiful and sedately elegant in its theme) – with superb fare – under the name My Most Favorite Food.

Doris is the author of two cookbooks available online and at the restaurant: At Oma’s Table and My Most Favorite Dessert Company Cookbook. She will talk to us about her coming to this country as a young kid, becoming an entrepreneur, cookbook author and succeeding at every endeavor.

Meanwhile in case you missed it, you can listen to the archive of last week’s show with cookbook author Lévana Kirschenbaum. We spoke about her newest cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen and the concept behind “whole foods,” their health advantage and benefits.

Don’t forget to tune us in this afternoon at 5:00 pm (Eastern Time), we will talk with Doris Schechter of My Most Favorite Food on BlogTalkRadio.com. We’ll be waiting for you!
