Park Slope Suggestions

My Brother who we are staying with said that Taro has the best sushi he's ever had. I can't wait to try it.

Park Slope Suggestions

Thanks for the advice. We are a young 30's couple with no children joining us (woo hoo! - thanks to Grandparents).

I'll definitely repost where we went.

Park Slope Suggestions

We're staying with family in Park Slope (On Prospect Place between 5th and 7th). This is the first time for us staying in the area (vs. Midtown Manhattan) and our family will be very busy so they won't be our tour guides. Any must do suggestions for food/eats/places to hang out? We don't mind a 10-15 minute walk either (if it's a safe area).

Thanks!

Best Pizza in Manhattan?

Thanks everyone for the replies. We ended up going to Lombardi's and everyone thoroughly love it.

Thanks again,

Cheese Place?

Seal,

Thanks - it was the right place. Excellent options and availability. Not overly expensive considering all the exotic items they had.

Manahattan Street Food

Hi Echo,

My foodie hubby, my friends and I just got back from our trip to NYC. You must try the chicken and rice platter from Halal's Chicken and Rice on the corner of W 53rd and 6th Ave. He is only open from 7pm - 4am and the lines are always at least a 1/2 hour. It was definitely worth the wait for all of us. You'll know which corner by the amount of people in line.

Enjoy!

Staying at the Hilton (53rd/6th)

Actually it was recommended from a colleague from our branch on Wall St. I will definitely research and probably change reservations if not too late. Thanks!

Staying at the Hilton (53rd/6th)

We're having dinner Saturday night at Tavern on the Green for a romantic dinner. Any casual or snacky suggestions would be great.

Cheese Place?

What's the name of the cheese place that Bobby Flay gets all of his cheese from in NYC? Also, can you eat there or is it just a store?

Thanks,

Best Pizza in Manhattan?

Want to try the best NYC pizza while in town next week. Last few times we were there we had pizza in Times Square and it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

Thanks!

Yankee Stadium Club

Anyone have any feedback on the food at the Yankee Stadium Club?

NYC - Wanting something different...

We are actually still trying to book a place - probably financial district since I can get a discount at the Marriott there.

I disagree on the Sony Stadium Club as I am seeking what to expect food wise since it's a restaurant.

NYC - Wanting something different...

We want the experience so anywhere in location is fine. We would want to avoid seafood due to our friends allergies but other than that we're open. Just want an extremely great meal with a romantic atmosphere.

Also, looking for good brunch places for Sunday morning.

Thanks!

NYC - Wanting something different...

My husband & I are bringing friends with us from Buffalo, NY to NYC for the Yankees game on July 22nd. My husband and I are familiar with the city as we come a few times a year but our friends are newbies. We (both couples) are also celebrating our wedding anniversaries while there. Can anyone suggest some non-tourist places to go and see? Also a place for a romantic dinner?

Finally - We've got passes for the Sony Stadium Club with our field seats. What should we expect?

Thanks,
Charis
