Row upon row of baked, fried, and shredded dough line the glass case at Baklava Factory, tantalizing customers with a bounty of honey, walnuts, and custard cream. The factory?s pastry experts concoct more than a dozen kinds of baklava each day alongside other European and Mediterranean sweets, such as fried balls of dough dipped in honey. Customers can sip espresso or cappuccino as they peruse these confections and the bakery?s array of elaborate gift boxes and baskets filled with Belgian chocolates, cookies, and, of course, baklava. Baklava Factory also does corporate gifting and enlivens events with custom cakes embellished with edible butterflies, cartoon characters, and rhinestones capable of fooling amateur jewel thieves.
Roberto Ortega Senior and his wife founded Me Gusta Gourmet Tamales in 1999 to introduce the world to the delicious tamales that they make with a secret family recipe. Having started as a small restaurant, Me Gusta Gourmet Tamales now yields its daily harvest of award-winning tamales inside a 10,000 square-foot facility, which is the size of Paul Bunyan's walk-in closet. The kitchen staff makes each batch using quality ingredients, including 100% monterey jack cheese, trimmed cuts of meat, and margarine with 0 grams of trans fat, before wrapping the bundles inside fresh corn husks.
The menu at Fernandas NY Pizza is a culinary collaboration between Italian and Mexican fare. The kitchen staff reaches into ovens and retrieves an array of pizzas, including sicilian, barbecue-chicken, and chicken-parmesan pies that are served whole or by the slice. They plop meatballs onto marinara-filled plates of spaghetti or penne and wedge them between sandwich rolls that diners can wash down with 24 flavors of shakes and juices. South-of-the border flavors appear as breakfast dishes or anytime snacks, including a morning feast of fried plantains and eggs on french bread or rolled-up pupusas, thick tortillas stuffed with beans, cheese, or the diner’s recycled piñata candy.
Dozens of anxious shoppers line up on the sidewalk, peering through a glossy store window for any sign of activity. After what seems like hours, a door swings open and visitors flood the shop to glimpse the object of their anticipation: newly released Dave White Air Jordan basketball shoes. The staffers at Millennium Shoes are not new to this kind of commotion, since many passionate shoe buffs routinely make the trek to the shop's poured-concrete floors to pick up eye-catching sneakers from brands such as Nike, Jordan, and Reebok. Alongside the trove of classic and designer kicks, sporty apparel and accessories by Stussy, Silvano, and Mitchell & Ness cloak upper halves, complementing newfound footwear and keeping hair from attempting to lace itself for attention. In addition to its bustling limited-edition releases, Millennium Shoes entertains visitors with a range of special events, including video-game tournaments and guest appearances by NBA players.
