Via Brasil: a disappointment

I have been to Via Brasil many, many times and NEVER had a bad meal. I have no idea what shrimp and cheese is and have not noticed it on the menu--it certainly isn't Brazilian. Their churrasco, feijoada, tutu a mineira are all excellent and highly recommended. I have never ordered moqueca there because I only like moqueca with shrimp, not fish, so I can't comment about that.

I haven't been to Gramercy Tavern in ages. So anything new to recommend or even something that's been on the menu for a long time?

Louro, anyone been?

We had dinner there this evening and it was wonderful! Very informal, laid back with excellent, reasonably priced food. The thing to do is to share several "bites" and small plates. We had 6 for 3 people which was plenty although none of us are big eaters. Absolutely not to be missed is the polenta with duck egg and the gnocci (sp?) Romana.

Murray Hill Restaurant Suggestions - GOOD ONES

I'm amazed no one has mentioned Da Ciro, a neighborhood Italian (on Lex close to 34th Street) with many dishes , including pizza, cooked in the brick oven behind the bar. We go there at least twice a month and although pricey, we think of it as our personal favorite in the neighborhood. The baby chicken (cooked in the oven) is spectacular and many of the pastas are very good indeed.

Cosette which I had never been to--has been replaced by another tiny French bistro, the name of which I forgot but which I highly recommend, especially the steak frites.

Blue Smoke ribs

Which of Blue Smoke's ribs are best--Kansas City, Memphis baby back or Texas salt and pepper? Or are they all equally good? We want to do take-out and can order a rib sampler if all are recommended,
