Hi! So I'm sadly moving from NYC in about two months. During my time here, I've really enjoyed trying different restaurants and treats, but I haven't tried too much of the fantastic ethnic eats NYC has to offer. Sad I know, but better late than never!
I was wondering if y'all could suggest some favorites. I'm open to traveling all over the city and food from any culture. I probably won't be daring enough to eat unusual animal organs (haha), but I know that still leaves plenty. Thanks!
PS...You're welcome to add to my bucket list in any way!
Hi! I'm trying to find a place to have a small 4 person birthday brunch. The birthday girl will be 27 and appreciates delish and thought out food. A vegetarian will be in the group. I hoping for a place where I can make a reservation just to avoid the dreading 2 hour wait. Price isn't really an issue, and I really open to any type of food. Thanks!
Hi y'all! So my best friend is coming to visit, and I am trying to think of a fun dinner for she and I and another friend, preferably downtown somewhere. I'm looking for a place that can just be a long dinner with good food and wine. We already have plans for italian and sushi on other nights. We can't do anything too expensive but can certainly slurge a little. Does anyone have places they love going to with their girlfriends?
Hi! My sister is getting married in two weeks in the carribean. I would love to take some kind of treat from nyc for her the week we are down there. It needs to obviously be portable, and I was hoping for maybe a wedding-ish theme (cheesy I know, but she's only getting married once...they are a great match :) ). I know Eleni's has decorative wedding cookies, but I've heard they are just over priced and not very tasty. Any ideas? Thanks everyone!
Hi! My sister is coming to town for work and is staying in Gramercy. She will be really busy while she is here, so I want to take advantage of her after work "i need a drink" weaknesses :) Does anyone know of good places for drinks (think wine over beer) around gramercy? A nice cheese plate certainly wouldn't hurt either. Thanks!
Hi! My sister and my two nieces are coming to town in a few weeks. My sister and I both love going to restaurants that are the buzz and enjoying delicious eats and interesting atmospheres. Her girls are only 8 and 10 though. While they are well mannered and fairly adventurous in their eating, I don't want to take them any where that it would be "too much" for them. They are great kids and I don't want to leave them at home. Any ideas of places we all might enjoy? Price and location isn't too much of an issue. Thanks!
I loooove sweets...especially cake and cupcakes (which I pretend is a slice of cake because I don't want to be a part of the annoying craze...but they are still good :) ). My birthday is this weekend. I know some spots I love downtown, but it never hurts to ask other opinions! What are your must have sweets below 14th?
Okay, I know, I know...people are always asking "where to go for my birthday?!" I've been trying to read other posts about this but just get overwhelmed! So I'm starting yet another birthday questionnaire. I and some other friends are turning 26...5 of us are going out to celebrate together. I'm not really wanting sushi or french and price doesn't really matter. We want good food, more downtownish, good wine (but we aren't snobby), young and fun but maybe not headbanging loud (I know we may have to give a little!) and a thought out atmosphere. Thank you!
Also, any post day delish brunch spots are welcome too!
I'm in some severe need. I love living in ny and trying all the restaurants, but I realize most of my favorite spots are typically either are really loud, really small, or really unique food. My Dad is visiting soon (which is a huge deal that he is finally making the trip!) He has a horrible back so truly can't really function too well in tiny spots. He also doesn't understand ny volume. So I know he is visiting ny, so he will just have to give a little but I would love to try to find a spot that is a little easier for him to handle. He's more of a steak or spagetti kind of guy. Price isn't an issue thankfully. Thanks!
My sister is coming to visit for her 30th birthday. Of course, we want to go all out and have some delish eats. We aren't really looking for tasting/prix fixe menus and desserts are VERY important to us :) We tend to lean towards downtown too. Thanks for any help you can pass along!
I have recently moved to Cobble Hill all the way from Alabama. The neighborhood is great with a lot of restaurants, etc. There's lots of buzz around certain eateries, but I was wondering what are the good staples in the neighborhood. I'm a student but am willing to spend a little more money on a nice meal every once in a while. I'm also a big fan of sweets. Can you share any info?
