Union Square Cafe Closing

"It will forfeit its lease at the end of next year..."

USC will be open for another 18 months. There's still plenty of time to enjoy it.

Red Farm Uptown- Wonderful!!

Thanks for the report. I agree that RedFarm UWS is better than the original downtown.

Casual lunch near Circle in the Square

If you meant 8th Avenue instead of 8th Street, then try Landmarc at the Time Warner Center which is a few blocks north.

Great value at Boulud Sud brunch

I was there for Sunday brunch as well. Enjoyed the mezze plate, lamb burger and chocolate lemon dessert. DB was seated nearby. The service was excellent as always.

70th birthday

It's not as difficult to get a table at Picholine. The food is of the same caliber as Per Se.

The only high end restaurants that feature unusual combinations like WD-50 would be Brooklyn Fare, Atera and Momofuku Ko though all three only offer counter seating. I'm also not sure that any of them will take a reservation for 5.
