Fort Greene Food?

small plates and great cocktails in Manhattan

Stanton Social
Alta

Small plates. Good desserts. Don't know about the quality of their e-S-presso.

The NoMad Library - amazing cocktails - and lighter fare, sharable menu items may suit your needs as well.

Landmark Movie Theater - 1st Ave and Houston

You can find the menu by searching "Black Tree NYC" or "Black Tree restaurant".

Only two of its quite broad menu are tacos.

Here is its menu:

Intimate NYC Wedding Dinner Locations?

That was so thoughtful of you, CS. And I love knowing that EMP is in fact a doable option

There is F & B minimum that is very very likely much higher than their budget. (See posts above that indicate most rooms in that caliber -or BELOW the caliber of EMP - have minimums of 7-8K)

Did you see the OP's budget? $6K for 24 people. Was that you paid?

Italian joint with similar recipe

I guess I could have done that in the time it took me to reply. But then how could I have been assy and shown my disdain for The CF and its ilk?

This isn't exactly a "Cheesecake Factory" crowd nor is there one in the city. What is in this pasta davinci? That might help with responses for those who've never been.

Food/Candy that the U.S. has but Canada doesn't ?

Maybe post to one of the Canada boards. I recall seeing threads about what people buy when going over the border for food shopping. Perhaps candy is listed.

Etiquette question (re: BYO and food) when hosting a birthday party?

Depends where you live. In NYC this is dinner time for an event. Arrive for cocktails and small bites some time between 6-7, dinner at 8.

Also, how long are people travelling to see you? This may cut into what would normally be their dinner hour and they will arrive hungry.

"Also I find op's that start can do ... And inevitably someone will rey "that is not best practice" to which I have to remind the the op says "can" not "world's best solution"

NoMad - lunch or dinner?

Have been several times. I've had the chicken for two and while v good, it does not rank in my all time favorite dishes or anything.

Note: Chicken sandwich is weekend brunch menu, not M-F lunch. Chicken burger is M-F.

Minimum F&B is more than OP wishes. I think it's $9K for weekend dinner.

If the del Posto room for that size group would be the one downstairs, I find it feels very hotel conference room. Lackluster and not very intimate. I also would think their PDR minimum is upwards of $7500, as that seems to be the minimum these days for that caliber. Please note, this is pure conjecture on my part.

ASIDE: Aquavit minimum is PDR $7500 and is one of the lower rates for a Michelin two star recipient.

Oh my. Post back in September. No where will be taking reservations or posting their menus til many many months.

In the mean time, since it was 1 1/2 months ago, use the search function (upper right corner) and get some ideas from posters from 2014.

Good crudo in Manhattan other than Esca?

Yes, because the post was in 2009. Isn't that precisely why you asked for more recent findings?

Anyone been to Ichabod's?

I dine out a lot and never even heard of it. Are there many reviews on here of it? That should be telling.

La Piazza at EATALY has really fresh, simple crudo. Very casual dining/snacks/limited menu in the center area. Bar seating for about 8 on each side and standing bar tables in the center.

Same crudo offering (I think) is available at Il Pesce (still referring to EATALY) with table seating.

Pomme Palais - New York Palace

The website is pretty explanatory and the pictures accurately reflect what it looks like.

And here is the menu:
