I don't know if this is even feasible, but if you have any recommendations for places for lunch on the UES (mid-week) that could possibly accommodate a group of 4, all with strollers, please suggest them. Thanks!

Fish: Ocean to Table

If you are going to bleed a fish which can be done to all fish is typically while the fish is still alive once you catch it by cutting a small slit right behind one of the pectoral fins. The blood is still pumping through the body of the fish and once you sever the main artery it will pump out itself. the benefit to bleeding a fish is that it will give less red meat.

I have heard of some guys letting whole bled tuna sit in a brine for a day or two of mostly ice and saltwater. I have tried fresh tuna both ways and it does make much difference in flavor in my opinion.

the japanese way of bleeding out a tuna is pretty involved and when you are on a boat and it rocking it is pretty tough to do. here is a link which describes it in detail

going to Le Bernardin this week for a special birthday

Go for the full tasting menu with wines. I have been there twice. It is still hands down my favorite restaurant in NYC.
