Le Veau d'Or

I was there for a weekday lunch with some friends from France. I chose it. They still make fun of me for it.

3-story Chick-Fil-A opening in Midtown

i'd urge you to try the chicken biscuit at Pies n Thighs. that's freakin' delicious. Chick-fil-a is almost passable for a reststop on the highway - almost.

There's a McDonalds at 33rd & 10th that has a drive thru and a parking lot!

Sport Peppers at Bed Bath and Beyond....

personally speaking, i find chicago style pizza inedible. i don't care where it's from or what it's called, it's disgusting. chicago dogs are delicious. it addressed everything that's wrong with a regular hot dog. instead of being meaty and salty, it's spicy and fresh plus meaty and salty.

Ethnic foods only in New York?

Xi'An Famous Foods is a must. Assuming you're here as a tourist, you could try the one in midtown at 45th bet. 5th & 6th, as it's very near Bryant Park, the main library, and Rockefeller Center. I'd also hit Zabb Elee, which you could do after running around Soho. If you're up by Natural History, check out Gazala for Northern Israeli Druze food. it's the only Druze restaurant in the US.

what's your thought on including Momofuku? which Momofuku and what do you plan to order? if it's ramen, there are better options. just to be clear, i love each of the Momofuku restaurants and often recommend them, but they don't fit clearly into any ethnic category.

seeing as you are including Pok Pok and Momofuku, you should look at Mission Chinese, Uncle Boon's, Jeepney, and Pig and Khao.

Brookfield Place (Battery Park)

yeah, i bike along the Hudson Greenway almost daily. have even seen another UWS hound along the way. i'll have to try kimchi fries. i actually have a BBE discount at Umami that i've been forgetting to use.

curious if anyone has had a consistently good experience at Hudson Eats' Black Seed.

Brookfield Place (Battery Park)

T, our paths seem to cross often. i was also there on Sunday around 2pm to check out Le District. I too have had problems with Black Seed there, but i'm totally enamored with their Soho location. damn, if those bagels were smaller, i'd pop them like pills.

wife and i tried for a glass of wine and lunch at Le Comptoir at Le District. we left before being served, having seen what a mess everything was. we'll try it again some time later. instead, we opted for take-away sandwiches at the bakery. my ham and cheese was fine, not better than others, though. my wife's went in the trash. is it a true french thing to put hard boiled egg slices on a roast chicken sandwich? nasty.

cheese counter was nice, as was the almond brioche we shared.

who serves kimchi french fries at Hudson Eats?

Murray's are less puffier than Ess-a-Bagel, so you might start there.

Lunch near MOMA?

there are so many options. you'll have to give more of an idea of what you're looking for? first thing that comes to mind is Katsuhama. it's casual, delicious, and semi-unique.

Burgers and Beers W. Village for Large Group?

Safe to assume you've been to Corner Bistro?

Separately, and I hate indirectly answering a direct question, could you consider brats over burgers? They're kinda the same, no? Lederhosen on Grove would be perfect for your group. Large space, often quite, totally charming for a German pub serving sausages, and incredible brats.

Not burgers, no, but a cousin, maybe?

Anything good near Hotel Wales on UES?

Madison @ 92nd Street...

Cafe Sabarsky for coffee and pastries.
Earl's for a good beer and some cheese.
W. Greenberg's for a famous black and white.
Mr. Wright's Fine Wine for some interesting bottles to carry home.

What is your favorite glass of wine?

Murray Hill closed, too? So is it now just TriBeCa? Damn. I loved the EV location, too. Very knowledgeable staff and usually very generous, too. I'm always so happy to be there.

Lunch recommendation for Chelsea Market?

i had thought about putting together a wine tasting there with a few hounds. probably best to do it on a Tuesday night, when the market is less busy and seating is more available. would there be any interest? would probably have to limit it to six or eight people just based on table arrangements.

sushi rec

You could try Sushi of Gari on Columbus near AMNH. Sushi Yasaka gets a lot of praise, too, but it's way more casual.

babbo past its prime???

with spring approaching, you should see charred ramps with mozzarella back on the menu. it's a nice dish. you might try something other than the mainstay pastas. they've got to play the hits, right?

Lunch recommendation for Chelsea Market?

Nothing is great, but it is BYOB. I'd grab a bottle of wine from Wine Vault, some bread from Amy's, some cheese from Lucy's Whey, and some charcuterie from Buon Italian. Indoor picnic! Woohoo!

Lets Talk Wings

I don't care for Pok Pok's wings the way others do. Mission Chinese has amazing(ly hot) wings. Also really like Mighty Quinn's. RIP RUB.

10th Anniversary Trip in May - Help requested with Midtown ramen & Meatpacking brunch

If you're looking for ice cream, Oddfellows opened in Manhattan last year - 4th Street bet. 2nd & 3rd. i've really enjoyed their peanut butter and jelly ice cream, as well as the oatmeal cookie. Morgenstern's was getting a lot of attention last year, also. they're on the LES. haven't made it there yet, myself. Big Gay Ice Cream is nothing more than a shocking name and good branding. you'd find better quality and flavors at Cones nearby.

Doughnut Plant over Big Gay Ice Cream.

I wouldn't do both Breslin and Spotted Pig. Cookshop is skippable, as is Colicchio's. If you're looking to stay in Chelsea and want a light lunch, consider Empire Diner.

Very excited. Still can't understand the love people have for Chick-Fil-a but I guess I don't need to understand everything.
