Looking for a new place to replace my usual Karen's on Astor Place

I need someplace near the 8th street N/R stop to get breakfast, coffee, food, take-out lunches, etc. Used to go to Karen's several mornings a week on my way to teach at NYU. Now where can I go for healthy and delicious that's close to the train?? Any suggestions welcome.

Are there any Gluten Free Restauraurants in Philly or Bucks County area?

There is a new gluten free bakery in Wynnewood at the Wynnewood R5 train station. It's brand new (maybe 2-3 months?)--the baked goods were delicious. And she makes custom cakes, etc.

Looking for "fun" restaurant for 11 y.o birthday party

Thank you all for these GREAT suggestions! We're in Narberth and have been to Kotatsu many times, but my daughter has been to 3 birthdays there in the past year alone. Looking for something a bit more fun. My daughter is pretty adventurous food-wise--can't speak for her friends (but don't really care!).

She would LOVE the Moroccan. That's probably first on the list right now. Will happily take more suggestions if you have them.

The Korean BBQ place must be Nagwon Garden--will check that out too.

Thank you!!

Looking for "fun" restaurant for 11 y.o birthday party

Want to take my daughter and 4 friends to a "fun" restaurant for her birthday. Obviously doesn't have to be gourmet and would prefer it not be very expensive. We've thought about hibachi but wondering if anyone has any other ideas. Looked at the fondue place but not sure if that's really for kids. Any suggestions would be great appreciated!

Best steak restaurant on the Main Line?

Looking for a good steak place for my meat-loving husband (preferably with some good salads for my vegetarian self) on the Main Line. Closer to Philly would be better than farther out, but anything will do. Thanks!

Looking for a place that takes reservations for brunch

Someone told me that Nice Matin does not take reservations for brunch. I think Compass it is! Looks great and they have space. Thanks all!

Looking for a place that takes reservations for brunch

Preferably on the UWS or convenient to the UWS (Lincoln Center area, Chelsea, etc). This would be for Sunday at noon--9 people total (including 2 kids). I have called at least a dozen places and NONE take reservations for brunch. Any recommendations? Nothing too expensive--want typical food like eggs/french toast/etc. Thanks!

Need kid-friendly (read fast) brunch in Chelsea

7 adults and 2 kids (not babies) need a brunch place in Chelsea. Service needs to be fast, but would still like good food. Suggestions?
