2006_03_food_Hot Sake2.jpgIn recognition of last weeks' welcome news that CNET has purchased Chowhound.com, we off these selections from the Chowhound Boards.

- Obligatory Shake Shack coverage.

- Right in sync with Shake Shack buzz is the first Arepa Lady inquiry of the season, another great outdoor NYC eating experience.

- A thread we are looking forward to seeing continue. Good Potato Pancake intel so far.

- Polish Meat Markets in Williamsburg, this will probably bring Subway Fare to Williamsburg again soon.

- West Village Italian for you and your parents.

- And fun read about a Jewish girl who wants to make Schmaltz.
