Gini ?

We have a friend in town from Belgium who loves Gini and can't find it here.
Anyone know if Gini is sold in Manhattan?
If not, what is the closest thing to Gini that we can get here?
Looking in the West Village or nearby.

Loud?

Apologies for not getting back sooner to say thank you for your recs and thoughts. Will put your "quiet" suggestions on our list of spots to definitely try. As for the others, we will go for lunch (if open) or go for early dinner. Again, thanks for taking the time to help us out.

In the meantime, we've eaten at Bobo and Claudette's. Ate in the upstairs room at Bobo on a Th night. The noise level was reasonable, despite the hour being not extremely early. Mostly two-tops of mature women that night, so maybe we just got lucky.

Four of us went to Claudette's at 5:30 on a Fri night. It was quiet enough until about 7:30, by which time the place was full and getting loud.

Loud?

Ttrockwood, I agree and should have included that info. Lunch is usually not a problem. My real concern is loudness at dinner and particularly on weekends.

Would also like to add Betony to the list.

Loud?

There are a number of new/new-ish restaurants we'd like to try, but one in our party has a high frequency hearing loss, which makes it hard to hear a conversation in a noisy room. So, we need to choose carefully.

Can anyone who has been to the following restaurants weigh in on their noise level? Thanks in advance.

The NoMad
Juni
The Clam
Heartwood
Empire Diner
Narcissa
All'onda
Bar Bolonat
Gato

Boozy Lunch this Friday

Boozy Lunch this Friday

Planning a romantic boozy lunch for 2 this Friday afternoon. West Village preferred, any cuisine. To give you an idea of what we're looking for, our usual boozy lunch places are Gotham Bar & Grill, Perry Street, and da Umberto. Sometimes Bouley if we want to splurge. Have searched this board and everything that comes up is pretty old. Suggestions please!

Santiago & Valparaiso

I'll be in Santiago for 4 nights later this month and will be taking a day trip to Valpo from there. I've searched this board and found restaurant recs that are several years old, including . . .

In Valpo:
Pasta y Vino
Rincon del Mar (upstairs in farmers market)
Rest Tanino at Casa del Bosque
Altzaga
La Concepcion
Chiringuito

In Santiago:
Aqui Esta Coco
Le Bistrot
La Mar
Liguria
Ana Maria
Puerto Fuy

My questions are:

1. Where would you go if you had just one lunch in Valpo?
2. Are there any places that are newer and deserve to be recommended?

All types of food and price points welcome.
We'll be staying at the Hotel Orly.

Thank you.

Natural, light and GOOD (downtown)

Rosemary's, Greenwich Ave & W. 10th, they have a rooftop "farm." Casual.

Zio or Crispo

I don't know Zio either, but the food is not very good at Crispo. The best thing about the place is their garden.

Quick dinner near 92nd Street Y this Thursday?

Thanks, everybody. I'm going to suggest to our group that we choose between Pescalou and Peri Ela. We can spend a solid hour and 15 minutes at the restaurant and still have 15 minutes to walk to the Y, so these two places should easily work. I appreciate your thoughts on Paola's and Le Paris as well. We go to the Y a good bit and now we have a couple of new places to look forward to!

Quick dinner near 92nd Street Y this Thursday?

Hi Guts -- I'm so glad you posted, since I highly value your advice.

Peri Ela looks great. Can't find Nick's on-line. Do you know if they have a web site?

Also, others in our group have suggested Paola's, Le Paris, and Pescalou. I find widely varying reviews of them on-line, from "romantic" to "cramped" and "noisy".
Have you been to any of those places?

Thanks.

Quick dinner near 92nd Street Y this Thursday?

Going to a lecture at the 92nd Street Y (at Lex) this Thursday. We'll be a group of 6 and only have an hour and 15 minutes for dinner before the event. Looking for a casual restaurant nearby, preferrably within a few blocks of the Y. Decent food of any type, no place fancy (since we won't have time to linger), but not a deli or hamburger joint either. Thanks.

You might want to go check www.villagevines.com to see if any of the restaurants you're interested in are offering discounts.

Low to Mid-priced birthday dinner

While tiny, the room is cozy and romantic, the staff is very welcoming, and the crab cakes are quite good.

Gramercy Tavern or Gotham?

Depends in part on the ambience you're looking for. Gramercy is more downtown. Gotham is more elegant.

Great Eggplant Parmesan

Craving great eggplant parm. Prefer eggpalnt slices to baked, rather than fried. Any Manhattan location, any price, any ambience. OK if it's on the menu as an app, entree, or side -- but not looking for a sandwich. Thanks!

Peter Luger as a vegetarian?

I'm in your veggie boat. Nothing to eat there, but happily went to be with friends. All comes down to your choice.
