Bachelorette party in September...SW Steakhouse in Wynn OR N9NE Steakhouse in The Palms??

i LOVE sw, but nine might be better for a bachelorette party. the atmosphere is hipper and younger.

Angelini Osteria

my husband and i just ate at angelini for the first time. we went for our anniversary and it is NOT a romantic atmosphere. the tables are right on top of each other if you are a two top. the meal was ok, but not what i was hoping for. did enjoy the lasagna verde. service was decent but started to lag as the room filled up. glad we tried but probably wont go back.

best place to view macy's parade?

so they have a new route this year and we are desperately trying to find a place for my 80 year mother in law to view it and have breakfast. we've already called all the hotels on the new route.

any suggestions welcomed.

scarlotta or harry cipriani

my friend who lives in the city suggested vice versa. looks like that's the winner.

scarlotta or harry cipriani

we have 7pm theater tickets and wondering which place would be a better choice before. i looked on open table and saw that scarlotta is in the theater district, so i assume it's closer. when i mapquested cipriani with the theater it says 1.6 miles or 8 minutes. my inlaws really loved it last time they were in nyc. we don't want to be rushed. what time should we make a reservation for?

thanks

high tea at a hotel

that looks very cute but i think she will enjoy something a little more traditional. i'm thinking the pierre or the st. regis.

thanksgiving dinner

thanks. i knew it was jean georges or robuchon. i think those places are a little too "foodie" for them if that makes sense.

thanksgiving dinner

my mother in law suggested the four seasons but i didn't know if they had a dining room or just a jg rest. doesn't have to be connected to a hotel. they just want something nice and festive. price is not any issue.

Anniversary dinner, Lahaina-area, Maui

have not been to merriman's (wasn't opened yet) but i spent my birthday last year at pacific o and the food and ambience was equally grand. also, tried pineapple grill and although we liked the food, it wasn't very "special".

Via Alloro?

ate at via alloro last night. 8:30 on a monday night = dead. the place was a virtual ghost town. but it did allows us to have the patio all to ourselves which was nice. it's a little weird because they charge $40 for a plate of pasta but they had espn on the large flat screen tvs scattered throughout the restaurant. so i think they take "casual" fine dining to a new level. $13 bellini was good but ridiuously overpriced. appstizer was the ricotta stuffed squash blossoms. that dish is always one of my favorites but even though everything tastes better fried it was a little bland. my entree was the linguine with crab. it was chock full of flavorful crab meat but the pasta was a bit too al dente. still very tasty. don't think i'd go back.
