Was thinking 'ino for tonight, but want to sit outside

I would try the back garden at Palma on Cornelia Street - they have really good Italian food and its a nice setting.

If a large and diverse selection is what you're looking for, I'd try The Ginger Man

Blue Ribbon Bakery, Jane, or Cookshop for Brunch?

I'm planning a brunch for 6 people in a few weeks, and deciding between Blue Ribbon Bakery, Jane, and Cookshop (and any other recommended places!). We're all 30-somethings and budget is @$30-40pp. Of these three places, what should I pick? Any other places worth considering? Downtown (E or W) preferred. One friend is vegan, so that's also something to consider.
Thanks!

My Quest to try Every Cupcake in NYC

Try the dulce de leche or the crimson and cream (red velvet). I live down the street and this place is a dangerous thing to have so close by!

My Quest to try Every Cupcake in NYC

You should check out Sweet Revenge - just opened on 62 Carmine near Bedford st. Their cupcakes are fantastic, and the place is really cute.

Annoying phone call with BarFry employee

I live right across the street, and had heard bad reviews right after it opened. But, we decided to give it a try a few weeks ago and were pleasantly surprised. It was a friday night and only half full at around 9pm. I thought the service was good, and there were a lot of non-fried food options. It's obviously a touchy subject with the staff, and our waiter made an obvious effort to point out the non-fried options. There was a fluke appetizer that we really liked, and also the tempura pieces weren't as heavy as I heard they were when they first opened. So, in summary, sounds like they're suffering from a weak opening, but they're trying to improve the menu based on the feedback. I would go back.

Brazilian for birthday group dinner?

I'm trying to plan my husband's 30th birthday dinner for 10-12 people for a couple of weeks from now. He really wants Brazilian food, preferably somewhere with great steaks. Any suggestions for potential locations? Any thoughts on Churrascaria Plataforma, Carne Vale, or Delicia Brazil?
Thanks!

Want to go to Rolf's but........

I went last Tuesday night at 7:30 and it was pretty packed. It got a lot less crowded at around 8:30 - we got seats at the bar for drinks - no food. Definitely a fun stop during the holidays just for the decor...

Good Steak in W.Village?

I'm looking for a place for a holiday steak dinner (for 3 of us), but would like to try something other than the Smith & Wollensky, Peter Luger - type places - Any recommendations for places with great steak in the W.Village/Greenwich Village/Meatpacking?
