Brunch UES or Midtown East plus Itinerary help

A restaurant that I went to recently and loved was Perilla. It was just great in every way. That might be a good choice, but it's downtown.

skip buddakan!! it's old and dated. I think a nice place to go to brunch would be abc kitchen and you can make a reservation. What kind of food does your mom like? Midtown doesn't have great choices for food. What about Monkey bar for dinner in midtown?? They probably have a brunch too.

New Orleans restaurant for group of 10 during Jazz Fest!

Dick and Jennys would be my suggestion. It's a fun spot

Help construct epic progressive dinner in New Orleans area - only the best

I agree with this except I would skip the pork tederloin and go to dick and jennys and get the savory cheese cake and then go to camelia grill to get the pecan pie thrown on the grill with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

great dinner at dick and jennys

it was in a creamy cajun flavored sauce that was amazing with flounder shrimp, oysters, and I think crawfish.

great dinner at dick and jennys

It was so great!! I had a gulf shrimp and tasso savory cheesecake that was amazing. I also had a seafood stew which was great as well.

Bayona--yea or nay?

I would say no and go to one of these places instead: coquette, patois, dantes kitchen, dick and Jennys, liliette, or brightsens. I like all of these place better than bayona.

Best dishes at Convivio???

I have to agree and I'm not that picky. The food lacked flavor.

Dinner choices narrowed down to 7

why don't you replace Tujagues with Brightsens. I ate there and I ate at stella too. I liked the food at Brightsens much better. I would prob switch from stella to August instead. I too am trying to figure out where to eat when I go back down. Don't forget to get the pecan pie thrown on the grill with a scoop of vanilla ice cream at Camelia grill.

Loud, hearty cajun food, whiskey drinking

Sorry to disagree, but as a native New Yorker, I don't think there is anything Cajun about lukes. To me it feels like it could be one of the many restaurants in Manhattan. I second Jacque-imos too

a few very excited foodies come back to NOLA.....please tell me where I should throw down!

I would skip Clancys. Everything I had was soaked in butter and fried too much. I love fried foods and butter, but I just felt a lot of the dishes lacked flavor

In New York for a week — did I pick restaurants well?

if you have over 200 things on the menu then a lot of stuff is frozen and gross. Skip shopsins and go to Prune. Also Nickys is still my vote for the bahn mi and I have been to the place on Mott as well as baogette.

At convivio I had had a pasta with sea urchin, but I tried 3 other pastas at the table and wasn't impressed.

I would change baoguette and go to Nickys on 2street between A and B. Also I had the tasting menu at convivio and I really thought it was just ok. I would skip Convivio altogether.

Visiting over Mardi Gras - please critique the list.

I would skip clancys. It was the one dinner I didn't enjoy. Everything was overly fried if that's possible. Brightsens was amazing. Definitely get the shrimp roumalaude to start. I had fried food at Brightsens too, but it was delicious.
