Thanks guys! This is much more promising than I expected. As you say, comiendosiempre, it's "not a dining mecca"

Location-wise Hudson Eats looks good, however, when I Google-mapped it it says that the ATT Ctr is closed. Is the food court open?

Suggestions for pre-theater at the Central Park end of the theater district.

Looking at Marea's location - any opinion about Nougatine?

Yes, Fun Home!
We're also seeing Hamilton at the Richard Rogers which seemed in the opposite direction.

Budget - no preference (always happy with good value of course) but tending away from highest end mainly because of time and dress restraints.
Cuisine - pretty omvirorous. We like Asian including Indian, no sushi. French, too.

I'm going to walking up from Battery Park to the 911 Memorial on a weekday. Any suggestions on street food in that area?

My family will be in town for a couple of nights of shows. We're planning on DB Bitro Moderne one night but looking for suggestions for the next. My wife and I love Le Bernadin but think it might not be a good match for pre-theater.

My wife and I will be attending a conference at RU and are looking for some suggestions for casual dinners in the area. We are pretty omnivorous with an affinity for Asian (including Indian)and French.

picnic fixin's Middletown CT

I wanted to give some feed back. Public Market was great. If I lived in Middletown I'm sure I'd be a regular. Mondo unfortunately was a disappointment. We had the eggplant fries an sampled 4 pies: oozy egg, arugula/prosciutto, veggie and tomato/basil/fresh mozzarella. Everything needed salt. The eggplant fries breading seemed to be whole wheat - way too heavy and bland. The ingredients we chose where not going to stand up to a strong char but they could have used a minute or two under the broiler - the effects tended to be raw toppings on a good thin crust. All in all good theory but mediocre execution.

Thx - Public Market it is. By the way - any opinion about the pizza at Mondo?

Hoping to pick up lunch to take to Storm King. Is Neon Deli the best bet?

pizza and a bar in Theater District

My problem is matching a spot for my 20something children who'll be with me. The challenge is one is an organic farmer and the other a DC office worker. Trying to thread that needle for pre show pizza and post show bar. No beer oriented spots, please. There's probably a previous post along these lines but I couldn
't find it so just a liink would be great. Thanks Chownders

Farm to Table Middletown CT

Last year I was in town looking something locavory and came across such a place but my schedule didn't allow a visit. Now I'm going to be back this weekend and can't find it on the Web. Any ideas out there Chowhounders?

Sausalito with a view

I'm thinking that if I can get there in time, why not the best of both worlds: good food (maybe Poggio) AND good view (benches near the ferry after dinner. We'd be straight from Point Reyes dressed as you might imagine. Would this be a problem?

Sausalito with a view

On one day of our 4 day SF trip we plan to be on our way back from Point Reyes in the late afternoon/early eveing. Is there a spot in Saulsalito where we can watch the lights come up in the city whilst we nibble on something good? We're pretty open as to food style. We have a Mission district day capped with Delfina, Dim Sum at Yank Sing, brunch at Zuni Cafe and a weekday market at the Ferry Bldg already planned.

Point Reyes and Point Fort

Great! Diner fare or the grocery for picnic sounds perfect. I'll check my locations.

Point Reyes and Point Fort

I need some suggestions for victuals on a day that starts with a trip out to Point Reyes then back to the Wave Organ near the Exploratorium by 4PM and sunset at Point Fort (8:30PM according to the charts). I will have a car. I've heard about oysters up near Point Reyes but not everyone in the group would be game for that plus I'm not sure how much time for lunch we'll have if we want to get back to high tide at the Wave Organ, however it's still a possibility. I've thought maybe if there's good carry-out on the way back into town (Korean fried chicken?) we might pick it up and picnic out by the Warming Hut. Another possibility is so a drive into, say, North Beach (something Italian?) and then back out to the fort for sunset. Help!

3 evening meals

Looking for some recommendations for 3 evening meals midweek the last week of May. I know I may be a little late on getting started so anything needing a 2 month reservation is out. Also dress code is important - a tie at the most, preferably a nice button down shirt and non-jeans slacks. Cost not a barrier. I'm pretty adventurous but will be traveling with a group so need some choices. Asian or french influence would be nice. Farm to table is always good. A few ideas I've had are Coi, Ristorante Ideale and Delfina.

burgers and the like on the coast [Seaside/Cannon Beach]

Thanks I found the thread. Any opinion about The Relief Pitcher or Gearhart Junction Cafe both in Seaside?

burgers and the like on the coast [Seaside/Cannon Beach]

Seems like there was a thread about good casual burger type places in Seaside (near the golf course?) and/or Cannon Beach but I can't find it now. Any suggestions?

Downtown dinner choices

The trick is hitting the sweet spot of common denominator for a family of 4. I'd say that Clyde Common and Cassidy's seem to be the best fits. I don't know the food scene there in Portland but it looks like Paley's Imperial would have the same name recognition elan that Michael Simon's Lola has here in Cleveland - and would,of course, be great.

Downtown dinner choices

My family, two 50-somethings and two 20-somethings, will be staying in the Downtown area for 3 nights (Thurs - Sat) perhaps at the Embassy Suites - without a car. Any recommendations for dinner in walking distance? We will probably spring for a cab for some combination of Beast, Ox, Tasty n Sons, Ken's Artisanal Pizza, Toro Bravo and Castagna but it would be nice to have other options.

Forest Grill--Birmingham, MI [DTW]

My experience was much like the posters above. Not surprisingly the charcuterie board was top notch with buttery pork belly, peppery salami, tart soprasessa and floral saucisson sec. I also sampled (ate almost every bit) of the prok belly and scallops which I found a bit rich - maybe because I was full of air dried delights. It was a Thursday night but at 8 and almost empty :(

food trucks in baltimore

The last thread I saw on this was almost 2 years ago so I thought I'd ask again. I'm going to be in town in late June. I plan to be in the Hampden, Station North and Fells Point areas on a Thursday and Friday. Any tips?

vergennes laundry

Made the stop and agree that the croissants are fabulous. Also agree about limited menu. I got one of Everything they offered the morning I was there: a croissant, a fig and almond biscotti and a little chocolate sable. The biscotti was prefectly textured with a smokiness that was a great match with coffee. The sable had just the right salt/sugar ratio.

Anyone been to the Vergennes Laundry in Vergennes, VT? Got a good write ni Food and WIne (Bon Appeitte?) this month.

Sorry about the Lola/Lolita confusion. I was thinking Lolita in Tremont. Ladybug, what makes Lolita different IYO?
