Taking my wife our for birthday tomorrow and she's been craving a good old-fashioned lobster dinner. Any recommendations in Manhattan or Brooklyn?
I want to send a nice bottle of balsamic vinegar to discerning friends. Any recommendations in the $50 range, give or take, and advice on where to purchase online?
I'm a big John Stewart fan but couldn't agree less with last week's rant that ballgame fare should be limited to soggy dogs and warm beer (well, he didn't say soggy and warm, but let's be real). He made fun of foodie fans who might say, "The game sucked but the lobster newburg was magnificent." I had my first visit yesterday and I say unabashedly, the game sucked but the clam & corn chowder and blackened shrimp po boy were fantastic, and the carnitas tacos were pretty damn good too. Anyone else?
Any recommendations? Would prefer a downtown restaurant we could take over (or one with a private room), but could rent buses and travel up to 1/2 hour from downtown if necessary.
All the better if I can get some good fish or meat at the same place. Will be at the convention center near the airport but can travel.
For my money it's a ripe cranshaw. And please hold the prosciutto, salt, lime, hot sauce or other add-ons; you can't top perfection.
