Visiting NYC from Chicago during Restaurant Week - Any Suggestions?

We are staying in Tribeca and are willing to go anywhere in Manhattan for great food. I would love to try some of the specials from Restaurant Week if possible. Any suggestions from locals are appreciated!

Need Beer Suggestions - Chicago

I would also add Piece in Bucktown. They have really tasty New Haven style pizza and they are a brewery as well.

I definitely second Hopleaf as well. Make sure that you get the fries!

Anyone tried Trattoria Trullo in Lincoln Square?

We're trying it on Friday and wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this?

Vancouver and Whistler Recommendations [Moved from Canada Board]

Hi everyone!

My husband and I are traveling to Vancouver and Whistler in August and are looking for recommendations for restaurants and things to do. One "must-see" I've been told is Granville Public Market, so we're definitely doing that. Other than that, we have no plans. I would prefer to stay away from the restaurants that are big for tourists and would much prefer to eat where the locals eat.
