DOORING + NEW YORK--338 Google hits, 22 Google Groups hits

   Another New York City word, for the city that has shown me the door so many times.
   From the NEW YORK POST, 12 May 2004, pg. 9, col. 4:

   When the bodyguard tried to exit the cab on the street side--a traffic violation called "dooring"--his door struck a cyclist who was traveling along Sixth Avenue.

TIRADITO + FISH--275 Google hits, 4 Google Group hits

   "Tiradito" is not in the OED.
   From the NEW YORK POST, 12 May 2004, "Latest flavors: Latino cuisine--it's a lot more than rice, beans and tacos, you know," pg. 65, col. 5:

Visual aesthetics are integral to the Matsuhisa experience, even in as subtle a presentation as the chef's version of the Peruvian ceviche dish called tiradito, in which fanned-out wafers of translucent halibut or snapper glisten with the cobalt-blue color of the underlying porcelain platter.

Yet another ceviche style is the sashimilike tiradito, introduced to Peru by the Japanese, who arrived in large numbers in the early 1900s to work on sugar and cotton plantations. Dressed with lime juice and served with a soy and ginger dipping sauce spiked with the Peruvian rocoto chile, tiradito is a unique blend of East and West.

Restaurants; Sushi bar? Yes. Japanese? Not really. Inventive food, with constant surprises.

   Japanese restaurants are popping up all around Manhattan.  When I walk from 57th Street to NYU, I pass about 20 of them.
   From today's NEW YORK POST, 12 May 2004, "Land of the rising fun: Indulge in the best Japanese cheap eats," pg. 73:

Col. 1:  Say hello to takoyaki, kushikatsu and omusubi at these cheerful little spots--without a Godzilla-size bill at the end of the meal.

Col. 1:  Japanese street food is the quick draw at _Otafuku_ (236 E. Ninth St, (212) 353-8503), an East Village cubbyhole where creamy-centered takoyaki--stuffed with either a chewy nugget of octopus or molten white cheese--are baked in round molds.  They're dusted with seaweed and drizzled with sweet brown (Col. 2--ed.) sauce and mayo, then heaped with fluttery, smoky bonito flakes for a definitely different snack.
   Omelet lovers will warm to okonomiyaki--eggy, golden grilled pancakes crunchy with cabbage, ginger and meat or seafood.

Col. 2:  ...gyoza (fried dumplings)..."Shabu-shabu"...

Col. 4:  ...omsubi... (At Oms/b.  See ADS-L archives--ed.)

Col. 5:  Mix and match home-style Japanese bites such as kushikatsu (crisply breaded, skewered pork), shrimp shumai dumplings, and maybe something tempura or sushi, and you'll probably get change back from your $10.
