went to judds this week. quick review: everything was very good but the fried chicken sandwich was out of this world,
 different and better than any chicken sandwich I've ever had. service was very quick pricing is decent...
have you tried izzy's smoked fried chicken sandwich?

Does anybody have experience building a sukkah deck in the Five Towns? Do I need a permit if I'm doing it myself?

what time? I showed up at 6, they were extremely overwhelmed and unprepared. Not unexpected just disappointing.
I was there later..like 8

Inwood
Officially yes but unless you have bad neighbors, you should be fine.

I vaguely remember hearing that if it's lower than 3 feet and permeable to water, you don't need a permit .I could be totally wrong though

How about carving block?  https://www.facebook.com/Carvingblock/
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

So I was at Doma Sunday night: Here is my review

We had reservations and were seated pretty quickly.

Ambiance is very nice and the place is huge



They have a nice bar to wait at too:



Service was great as well and food came out quick. They were only half full so that could be why. We were assigned 3 people to our table and they all were constantly checking on us.

We started with 2 appetizers:

Lamb Kebab Flat Bread-$25 above average but not out of this world



Beef Tacos-$21 Below average they tasted too meaty and the sauce was very liquidy



Drinks: Strawberry Mojito (No alcohol) still charged us $18 for some reason but was very good!



Sangrita- was ok -$18



We shared the Tomohawk steak for 2- $125 It was fatty but the parts that were lean were very good!



We got 2 sides: Seasonal Mushrooms- $14 very good



Caramelized Onions (no clue why I got this, I guess just because it sounds good) $14



Dessert: Doma Donuts with chocolate and vanilla dippings- $14 very good

I didnt want lean I wanted the best steak they had which everyone said was the tomohawk. When I go back I would definitely try a Filet Steak which generally is my preferred type.

Wow $125 can get you a lot of steak that comes out pretty awesome on my Weber or cast iron pan. That ambiance and service better be something special..
