Gnocchi?

Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Manhattan (Midtown to Downtown) that does exceptional gnocchi? Nice and fluffy, not hard and gluggy. I really need some good comfort food.

I'm going to Le Bernardin Tomorrow. Yay!

Called today and just happened to score a cancellation res at 8:30. Taking my best friend who is visiting from Australia. Anyway - I'm just very happy. Any ordering suggestions? And does "jacket required" mean tie as well?

I think I've over salted my braised short ribs.

They're still cooking away but taste a bit salty. My mum used to add a raw potato whn this happened. Does this work? Otherwise, any suggestions?

Adding chicken livers to coq au vin - should I?

Hi,
I'm making coq au vin on Monday and have some chicken livers in my fridge so I was thinking... should I saute the livers with the bacon and add them to the final dish? Or is this an offal idea?

Doing a Coq au Vin dinner for 9. Any suggestions for an appetizer?

Thanks. Some great suggestions. Thinking of simple haricot verts as a side, or fava beans - if I can find some good ones. cheese plate instead of dessert? inspired. x

Doing a Coq au Vin dinner for 9. Any suggestions for an appetizer?

Hi,
I foolishly agreed to cook a French dinner for my friends at the end of the month. Was wondering if anyone had any easy - no prep, appetizer ideas. I was thinking a nice pate with cornichons and a green salad. But I really want to make everything myself and pate sounds rather challenging. Any ideas welcome.
