"Coolest/Hippest" restaurant in Midtown area?

Betony
The Modern Dining Room
The NoMad

I love Le Bernardin but it's fairly conservative and might be considered a bit stuffy by anyone under the age of 50.

"Coolest/Hippest" restaurant in Midtown area?

Here's another obnoxious question - how old are the clients? That might help define what would be cool and hip to them.

Chowhound lunch at Zabb Elee in Queens

Just curious: is there a big difference between Zabb Elee's Queens and Manhattan menus?

Won't be returning to Per Se

Too sweet.

Won't be returning to Per Se

At Per Se they shave the white truffle again after a few bites, just to replenish it. The restaurant does this for all customers.

Michelin New York 2015 results

I'm glad that Andanada is getting some recognition. It's a lovely Spanish gem near Lincoln Center.

I'm surprised that Annisa was dropped from the list though.

Brunch near the Belasco Theater?

Lambs Club is good for brunch. Also look into:

DB Bistro Moderne

Epicerie Boulud dirty lettuce

If you're going to write a negative post... t's Epicerie Boulud, not Epicurie Boulud.

odeon, is it still there?

Odeon is a solid neighborhood restaurant but not really a destination for foodies so it depends on the kind of experience that you're looking for.

Nice restaurant where we can wear shorts?

Has Minetta Tavern become so casual nowadays that men wear shorts? The last time I was there, well over a year ago, most men were in suits or blazers.

Help with Mother in Law B-Day Dinner Please! (price no object)

Picholine will be closed for the months of July and August, but otherwise it's a good suggestion.

OP: Given the size of your party I don't think you can improve upon Del Posto for a Sunday evening dinner but look into:

Cafe Boulud
Lincoln
Marea

Your group would be too large for the smaller dining room at Per Se, and too small for the larger one.

Who do you follow on the Manhattan Board?

MMRuth's posts were very helpful.

I'm also wondering whether Miss Needle, michelleeats and hcbk0702 are still active. I've always trusted their judgment.

Bye Bye CRUMBS

The Brooklyn Blackout cupcake at Two Little Red Hens would be a good substitute.

Brunch and lunch - not sure if you can request it during dinner.

Also try the fried chicken at Ma Peche. It's my favorite.

Which French restaurant?

Yes, the gougeres. And the chocolate fondue.

Why do people like sea urchin?

Where did you try it? Sea urchin needs to be impeccably fresh.
