Good Jerky in Manhattan - where to buy?

I am travelling to Manhattan for work and my girlfriend wants me to bring back some nice jerky.

Can you tell me where i can buy some good stuff in Manhattan, time will be tight so i am looking for a shop pretty central i.e. between downtown and 60-80th?

Thanks

Recomendation for a Central London Restaurant like Dean Street Town House

Hello,

It is my girlfriend's last day at work in a couple of fridays before she is on Maternity leave (our first bairn is due in the middle of September)

I would like a recommendation for a really nice, but relaxed restaurant that we can have our last blow out meal at before restaurants become a distant memory. We both like the Dean Street Town House, with its bar, bustle and good food - but want to try somewhere different.

I like Hix's places in Farringdon and Soho, and want to try Bar Bolud and English Pig, but these places maybe a bit to masculine (if you know what i mean)

Food should be british, modern british, french, spanish - but not too fussy as she has an appitie (eating for 2!).

Oh, and it will be too late for the obvious choices of Dinner and Ivy etc...

You help is appriciated.
