As home to sizable Asian, Central American, and South American immigrant populations, Sunset Park’s restaurant culture bears little resemblance to just about anywhere else in New York. Though there seem to be two or three more places to eat on every block compared to, say, Carroll Gardens, most of these spots remain informal, trend-immune establishments to grab a plate of pork buns, or a rotisserie chicken with rice.
The classic Quebecois dish poutine, a frenzy of gravy, cheddar cheese curds, and French fries, is simple, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. Curds should be soft but squeaky, gravy should have a velvety body, and fries should be husky enough to hold their own without turning instantly into mush. The top picks here tend to adhere to this triad, but here’s a warning: Canadian readers or Quebecois purists might want to avert their eyes to the Honorable Mentions; there be French-fried monsters.
Boiled down to its soulful essence, the Vietnamese dish pho is rice stick noodles, delicately but intricately seasoned broth, and meat, plus a veritable garden of greenery alongside for garnish. All of these components combine to create a soup that’s spiced but not spicy, beefy (in its traditional pho bac guise) but somehow still light, and customizable via herbs, chiles, citrus, and dipping sauces.
@matt_kronsberg Got to see one of the grills in action, if it's a standard piece of equipment, at a spot not on the list. Whole fish goes in a wire cage with a long handle, then horizontally loaded into a heated box to bake. It was kind of amazing.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
