What do you do when a favorite restaurant slaps you in the face?

Its happened to me also and I am actually sure that at one time or another it has happened to everybody. My solution is to not go unless I absolutely cant avoid it. That is usually when my will breaks and I give into the demons. But hey, I geuss thats how things go. Its like a break up, if you like the person enough eventually you get over the hurt and can be friends afterward. all kiding aside, there are plenty of fish in the sea and maybe this is the oppurtunity to go have some seafood. I completely sympathise

Japanese pubs around St. Marks??

I agree with silverjay, Natori might be what you are looking for. Still fun but not so crazy and crowded

I dont know if they feel like going a little further north but Rosa Mexicano might be just what they are looking for on 63rd next to lincoln center. you can check out my review at www.chowhound.com/topics/410307

An Avocado's Potential, Rosa Mexicano

I hadn’t known about this place and in fact it was my date’s suggestion. When we first came in, there was a 20 minute wait, so we sat at the bar for a while and had a drink. I enjoyed sitting at the bar so much that I might even return just for that. Soon after finishing our drinks we were seated next to a window at a cozy corner table. We ordered some guacamole which my date said was a must. I had no idea that the avocado had so much potential. I was never much of a guacamole fan but have since become an avocado enthusiast. We ordered some ceviche that was very refreshing and some empanadas for appetizers. For the main course we had the filet mignon in a mushroom cream sauce and the grilled shrimp. The filet was extremely tender and the sauce was not too strong. For desert we had a wonderful flan, which was a very good finale for our dinner. It was one of the better flans I’ve had. My only complaint was the pestering of the waiters. At one point the waitress asked us if everything was great. Great, who do you think you are, Gordon Ramsey? My date and I looked at each other, and silently agreed with an inner chuckle. We told her that everything was fine. Overall we spent close to 100 dollars with a couple of drinks and I have to say that it was well worth it. I’m coming back.

The Closest Thing to "FRIENDS"

Have you ever watched those New York based sitcoms and chuckled to your self, saying “apartments like that don’t exist.” Have you ever wondered where the coffee shop from friends is? Well last week I found Max café which is the closest thing to it. In fact it might even have some improvements. It’s the ideal place for long conversation over a glass of wine and some reasonable food. The décor has a bit of antique European flavor with couches strewn about and an almost private back room. The food though very simple is always fresh and full of flavor. It has the home made quality that so many of NY’s coffee shops lack. For my taste the coffee is too strong but then Danesi is one of the coffee kings. Because of its location next to Columbia, the atmosphere is really young and almost not typical of so many places on the UWS. Max café is worth trying out if your in the neighborhood. How come we dont have more of these places?
