Del Posto but not Del Posto

Great suggestions, thanks. It was Valbella that was perfect and closed.

I'm getting Scarpetta as a suggestion - any thoughts?

Wow, that does in fact look absolutely perfect for these guys, so of course it is closed for a private party on Tuesday night. Anything other recommendations like this place?

Looks good, but too far on the Upper West and not current enough for these guys.

My boss has some clients coming to town. They are rich guys, a couple of them a little boisterous. They went to Del Posto last time around, loved it, and now I have to find another restaurant with that same vibe - big space, sort of masculine atmosphere, great food. It should have a fantastic wine list as the big guy is a wine buff and there should be some hope of me getting a reservation for 6 there on this coming Tuesday night.

Any thoughts? Any? At all? Pretty please?

Outdoor drink/nosh in Grammercy Park?

Yet another outdoor request on this 72 degree day...

Anywhere within 10 blocks of Grammercy Park with sidewalk tables where we can have a late afternoon glass of wine and decent noshes? Doesn't have to be a full on restaurant.

Thanks.

west 40s for upscale kids?

My boss is a somewhat snooty rich lady who has to take two nine year olds to lunch on Sunday in the West 40s before a matinee. It has to be quality, even if its just really good pizza. A place that takes reservations would be preferred since Mother's Day in the theater district will probably be insane.

Any suggestions?

Find me the best cheesesteak in NYC

I was born and raised in Philly before moving to New York - Carl's is the real deal.

Here's a link to their website - they list where they're going to be every week:

high end gift basket with wine?

I did think of that, just seeing if maybe I can get them delivered together before I explore Plan B.

Thanks!

Thank you! I'm on that site, but can't find the basket. Can I trouble you for a specific link?

I would for anyone else, but these are very rich people and I don't think something I did would be elegant enough for them.

Great idea. Maybe Murray's will do that. You're not in NY, are you?

high end gift basket with wine?

I'm looking for a holiday gift for my boss and her immediately family. They are very tasteful, moneyed Upper East Siders, and I'd like to send them a basket/box of some high end gourmet items AND a bottle of wine or champage. The former is easy to find, but I can't seem to track down a place that can include liquor in the gift. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Beignets in the city?

I'm having a huge craving for a beignet. Anyone know where I can get one in Manhattan or Brooklyn?
