Where Can I find a great Selection of Balsamic Vinegars in Orange County/LA

I was buying a thick beautiful 18 year old balsamic vinegar from a company online. They have the worst customer service, so I'm looking for something new.

Preferably a gourmet type shop with a big selection of Olive Oils and Balsamics in the Orange county Area. Wouldn't mind traveling to LA if it's a good selection.

Maybe a place where I could sample different balsamics before purchasing them.

Anniversary dinner in Greenwich village

Looking for a nice romantic restaurant in Greenwich Village for a Sunday night....any kind of food nothing specific as long as it's good. I'm mostly looking for something with a very romantic atmosphere, intimate. Any kind of price range is fine.....I don't mind paying extra for nice service and atmosphere. Any suggestions??

Russian Tea Room

I made a reservation at the RTR on an impulse for my anniversary dinner...I'm only in town for a few nights (from LA) and was looking for something romantic and different for my husband and I's wedding anniversary. I looked the Russian Tea room up after watching an episode of friends...(yes that is how out of touch with NYC I am) and went to their website...it looked perfect! Then I went to Yelp and am now doubting my decision! I'm looking for a landmark iconic/romantic/sexy restaurant that is purely New York! I like dark settings which is why the red and dark light interior of RTR struck my fancy.

So should I cancel my reservation @ the Tea Room? Any other suggestions in midtown/Theatre district area? Doesn't have to be Russian food, although I was really looking forward to that since I've never tried it.

Waterfront Dining

So I'm a huge mega fan of the movie "when harry met sally" and one of my favorite scenes is when Sally tells her girlfriends that she broke up with Joe. They were sitting outside on this fabulous waterfront cafe and I always said if I ever make it to NY I want to eat there! Well, I realize it's about 20 years later, but if anyone knows what restaurant that was filmed at or if it's even still there that would be awesome! If not then what would you recommend for a spectacular waterfront dining experience?

NYC for 4 days in September!! HELP!

This is all really helpful, thank you so much! Regarding the sushi..maki rolls and with tip food and drink we would spend up to $75 a person...I just want to feel I got my money's worth. In LA you pay $20 for one maki roll and it's the size of a quarter and only 4 pieces.

NYC for 4 days in September!! HELP!

My husband and I will be in New York for 4 days in September...it's our first visit and we are big time foodies and want to get the best possible during our short stay. We live in the LA Area so we have a variety of great restaurants but I'm looking for stuff that is New York specific....Pizza for example! I would also like to try a great sushi place in New York just for the comparison.

So if anyone could help me find the following foods in NYC that are the best please let me know!

-Italian Deli Sandwich with good bread (not jewish deli)

-NY Pizza

-Struffoli (fried) Can't find it anywhere in LA and my husband dreams about the way his aunt use to make it.

-Good Sushi....and not a place with ity bity tiny little rolls/ 4 pieces like 20 bucks, I hate those places!

Open to any other suggestions, we enjoy all kinds of food:)
Thanks!
