Excellent article about German Rieslings!
Blanca is extremely overrated. Dopey policy of no smartphone use (no problem for no pictures, but what do they care if I want to read the NYTimes while I'm waiting for the next tiny course). Left hungry; almost stopped into Roberta's for a pizza.
Extended tasting menu at Per Se. Wonderful, but too much food.
I did the "poor" person's version instead that was terrific: kobe beef, foie gras and truffle mayo--had originally requested the truffle sauce, but they brought the truffle mayo instead. Cost about half the price of the Rossini burger.
Looks wonderful to me! Definitely plan to try it soon!
Hope they start selling it across the street at ChikaLicious Dessert Club for take-out.
Cones in the West Village is my favorite. Great flavors. Very nice service. Not a fan of Grom, Il Lab or E&B.
Agree that the Kouign Amann is excellent at Macaron Parlour. Never had the DKA since it was already sold out when I stopped by Dominique Ansel.
Great photos! I was at the earlier dinner, and it was wonderful!
I had the yummy duck ramen at Ma Peche today.
My favorite chopped liver is at Sarge's (perfect mix of chicken liver, sauteed onions and hard-boiled egg). While I adore most things at Russ & Daughters, I'm not a fan of their chopped liver.
Cannot add to your query about why Jews love Chinese food, but I love all Asian food!
I love the Orange Julius! I've had it a several times, and it's delicious!
I LOVE German Rieslings, and find they pair perfectly with all types of food. So glad that Momofuku Ssam Bar had a Summer of Riesling dinner this year! I think EMP has the most extensive collection of Rieslings.
I went twice last week to Laduree. First, on Tuesday when the wait time was only 45 minutes. Second visit was Friday afternoon, when the wait time was 2 hours (credit card machine wasn't working and only one cash register). Both times the macarons were great! My favorites: caramel; lemon; coffee; vanilla; and (surprisingly) rose petal. Will wait a few weeks in hope that the wait time becomes more reasonable (no longer than 20 minutes). Want to do a taste test with my other favorite macaron, Bisous Ciao.
You forgot Ma Peche.
I love ChikaLicious Dessert Club's premium caramel and red velvet cupcakes. Perfect sized cupcakes.
I like Marseille (44 St. & 9th Ave.) for French brasserie food.
What a shame. Aureole used to be among my most favorite restaurants when they were at their townhouse on E. 61 St. I haven't been to their new location; sounds like I don't need to.
I've had dinner twice at Riverpark, and loved both times. Food is delicious (especially the cavatelli and lamb, duck, and rack of lamb). Agree that the beignets are yummy, as is the malt ice cream. Service is very friendly and professional. Views are gorgeous, and the outdoor tables will be among the most sought-after tables in all of Manhattan when the weather warms up again.
I agree about the "yummy" factor of the Artisanal Pumpkin Gnocchi. Was there for brunch this past weekend and ordered it, and it was wonderfu! Hope they keep this on the menu for a long time.
Do you know if you order dinner in the Salon (from the Salon menu) whether you would receive the same selection of mignardises? Definitely might be worth having dinner in the Salon.

I recently bought honey cakes from Russ & Daughters and Sarge's, and both were great! Great flavor and texture, with a slight edge to Sarge's.
