I'm heading out to Napa for the first time next week. I am mostly out there for a work-related thing, but I will have about 1.5 days to explore and try to eat/drink/do something fun, and I'd like to make the most of it. Since it's just one day, and who knows when I'll be out there again, I am willing to splurge a bit, so money is not [a major] concern. However, being that it's somewhat last minute, reservations for certain places should be a consideration.
So, hit me with your best recommendations. High-end, low-end, sweet, savory, unique, whatever. Please and thank you in advance!
I am trying to find a place to have a rehearsal dinner for my and my fiance's families in September, but we don't want to spend an exorbitant amount of money. Ideally, it would be nice, but not too formal, for about 15-20 people. Private dining room would be a plus, given the number of people, but not strictly necessary.
Also, there will be Korean and Polish people, dining together, some of whom may not be the most adventurous of eaters--we were thinking either American or Italian would be the safest choices.
We are open to places in outer boroughs.
Ack, also, if babysitters cannot be secured, there might be 2 (well-behaved) children and an infant in tow.
Please help! Thank you!
I'm looking for a place for a quick pre-dinner drink. Anyone know of a casual bar in the Murray Hill area where one could get a decent cocktail (classics, nothing fancy), as close to 29th St near Lexington or Park as possible, but trekking a few blocks in favor of a better bar is fine.
Thanks in advance for any help!
I'm looking for a great morcilla [Spanish blood sausage/pudding] recipe, and google is turning out to be somewhat unhelpful. I found a couple, but it'd be great to have one that's tried and recommended.
That said, if you have any, tried, recommended, or not, please send them along!
Sorry if this is a common topic, but I have a friend visiting, and I want to take him somewhere that is unique to New York.
He's from Austria, has lived in Paris, and this is his first time outside of Europe. Ideally, I'd like to take him somewhere where the experience is as interesting and memorable as the food itself - not necessarily high-budget memorable, just unique.
What are some food-experiences that you would consider to be not only awesome, but quintessentially New York? Any suggestions?
