Anyone have some ideas for a fun, food centric birthday party experience in NY. I like to do something "different" for my husband every year. Wanted to try Saam bar for the Bo saam but they are fully committed and the "beef 7 ways" is a bit pricey and would eat up our cocktail budget (necessary on a birthday!). I contacted Bell Book and Candle about the private back room for suckling pig and they never responded and I refuse to chase someone down to give them my money. In the past we've gone to Flushing for a hot pot and Congee Village for a kareoke room. Any ideas would be appreciated!
Where are your favorite spots to dine in the financial district? I find it so hard not to be disappointed so I tend not to branch out, but am getting serious burnout!
Battery park counts too, and it can be high end, low end, brunch.. just delicious!
I had such great results from my last query, I am counting on ya'll in Talk to help me out with a harder request. Have 10 college mates coming to NYC in mid-November for an annual get together. They have been enticed to leave the tri-state 'burbs and visit NYC for lunch, and since I am the only native left, the decision of where to go lies with me. However.... I need to work around the following preconceived notions:
- NYC is very expensive - I've eaten in their towns, the difference is negligible!
- There is too much "weird" food - This includes sushi and Thai, and probably un-Americanized Chinese.
- Scared/unable to navigate complicated subway directions - it must be off one line originating near Penn Station.
This is a lovely group of people but I am stumped. Otto is typically my large group fall-back, but I'd actually like to try someplace else if anyone has good ideas!
entertaining out of town friends from a faraway city this weekend in nyc and want to bring them somewhere impressive for lunch that is not too expensive - our first thought was 11 madison which is "fully committed" so any suggestions would be welcome!
also interested in more casual dinner ideas if you're offering...
I set about preserving about a 1/2 dozen Meyer lemons in quarters about a month ago. I've used the "juice" on top of vegetables but not sure what else to do.
Any ideas? Links to recipes? Also, how long do they keep in the fridge?
