Amy's Bread

Hi,
I'm looking for a good bakery, specially for breads (any bakery that sells Amy's breads would be awesome) in Upper West Side NYC (138th and Amsterdam Ave.).

Thank You

Need Dinner Recommendations for Molyvos?

Hello
I know this is late, but if someone can help me with what to order at Molyvos. My wife and I are going there for a dinner tonight. I am not necessarily looking for their Valentine special menu rather looking to order the recommended dishes (of course including dessert).

No food allergies but my wife is a vegetarian (egg is fine). I eat all meat.

Thank you

Group/Team Lunch in Battery Park near

Hello
I would like to take my team out for lunch, so looking for recommendations in Battery Park neighborhood. I was looking at Adrienne's Pizza on Stone St. but they don't take reservations and I don't want to risk or wait with a group of 12 people. Few people in the group are vegetarians, so looking for a place in walking distance from battery park, with few vegetarian options and that take reservations. Not looking for anything too expensive (Adrienne's Pizza bar's price range is good).

Thanks

The Banyan Tree - Closed?

Thank You. Very helpful! I agree that given these islands are kind of isolated/far from mainland, the food expectations shouldn't be set too high.

I was wondering if you have recommendations on what to order at these places, if any of these places have any particular dish that is a must?

Thank You once again

The Banyan Tree - Closed?

Aloha
I will be reaching Maui in the evening around 6pm and staying at Ritz Carlton, so was planning to have dinner at The Banyan Tree. Looks like teh place is closed :(
Please recommend a place in the area (Kapaluaā€ˇ, Maui). I'm looking for authentic Hawaiian cuisine. I will have a car, so anywhere on the island should be fine. I planning to cover following places during my stay in Maui.

The Plantation House
Merriman's
mama's fish house
Paia Fish Market
Ululani's Shave Ice
Coconut's Fish Cafe
Yee's orchard & fruit stand
Kihei Caffe

Please let me know if I'm missing anything/must go place. Also a replacement for The Banyan Tree?

Thank you

Caribbean Island Recommendation - Food & Scuba IMP! Mid January

My wife and I live in NY and are planning a 4 day trip to a Caribbean island during mid-January. There are so many good islands that it has been hard for us to decide, so looking for recommendations based on our below preferences (this is our first trip to Caribbean).
1. Good "Scuba dive" experience
2. Beaches - We want to spend time relaxing, so not looking something crowded.
3. Last but definitely not the least - "Food" I love food and would like to experience some authentic sea food.

Thanks in advance for any help possible.

Italian Dinner in Manhattan

Thanks a lot for the recommendations.

We're fine with casual or little formal dressing. Even my first preference was Scarpetta, but we are not getting any reservation for this Friday. Scarpetta do accept walk-ins, I'm guessing it would be a long wait on a Friday evening? What if we try going there around 7pm?

Thanks again

Korean BBQ - Madangsui - What to order??

Hey! I've heard a lot of good reviews about Madangsui for Korean BBQ but unfortunately none of them really recommended any dishes to order.

We are 4 people and all of us are ready to try/eat anything and everything interesting. I'm looking for some serious recommendation on what to order at this place.

It will be really great if anyone who has been to the place can recommend me or could point me to any online forum.

Thanks a lot!

Just to add - rest of my friends (non-vegetarians) eat anything and everything, they like trying new stuff/cuisines... so any cuisine would work.

Need Recommendations for birthday dinner

I'm planning to do my birthday dinner in about 10 days from now. We are about 11 friends, 2 of them are STICKLY VEGETARIANS (no fish, sea food). I don't want it to be too expensive (entrees less than $30) and want to have it in Manhattan, if not then I'm OK asking people to come to Williamsburg (Brooklyn).

I tried looking at few options (Public, ABC Kitchen, La Esquina and a few more) but I am having hard time finding a reservation for a group of 11 people.

I would really appreciate if you could suggest me few recommendations, again my constrains are the following:

1. Getting a dinner reservation on a Friday evening for a party of 11

2. Place should have a few (2-3) decent vegetarian options - no fish or sea food

3. Entrees preferably below $30

Thank You
