Freshly Ground Coffee

Passing through Manhattan soon. Normally buy freshly ground coffee as a momento of my trips!
Love French vanilla.
Recommendations welcomed.

Dining in Ireland

Unicorn - Dublin City Centre- good for long lunches - buzzy - relatively expensive
The Bistro - Dublin City Centre - good for long lunches - reasonably priced
Ely Wine Bar - Dublin City Centre- casual - excellent wine list and many by the glass
Chez Max - Dublin City Centre - good French Bistro
Expensive- Thorntons, Guilbauds, Chapter One, L'Ecrivan - Michelin standard - you get what you pay for - all are doing value lunches/specials
Le Gueleton- good French Bistro - no reservations - turn up
Winding Staircase- City Centre - worth a try

Long Liquid Lunch on Wednesday/Thursday in Manhattan!

I am revisiting Manhattan for a few days with my wife for our 10th wedding anniversary at the end of September.
We love our food and wine and since we will be "child-free" we want to spend a long lunch enjoying things the way we used to - uncomplicated!
We would like some restaurant with a good buzz, food and wine where you don't feel like you have to leave by 3/4/5!
Recommendations would be much appreciated.
