Looking for quick lunch somewhere near St. Marks Place. Had a nice shawarma at chickpea last year but heard it closed/went downhill. Any suggestions?

Tia Pol or Casa Mono?

What are some of the differences in the two restaurants?
Which one has better food?
Which one would be easiest for two people to grab seats at the bar during the week and best time...early or late...

Pizzeria Bianco (Phoenix)

Has anyone tried arriving late, like 9:45 on a weeknight, ordering a pie and sit at the bar while waiting for it. Can you eat at the bar? Take home what you don't finish?

baguettes?

The BEST baguette in NYC is on Sullivan Street. Used to be Sullivan Street Bakery, now called Grandaisy Bakery. They sell to many top restaurants.

Appetizers at the bar?

Looking for a couple of places for two people to sample creative new american type appetizers in a casual bar setting. Food must be really good.

Restaurant Choices?

If I opt for the tasting menu with wine, is Cru also the best bet for a better wine pairing experience. I imagine both places pour some nice wines with their pairings.

Restaurant Choices?

Thanks Halo,

It looks as though I will need to choose either Cru or EMP since the reservations worked out that way. Dining with another foodie guy so it really is about the food and the setting not being too formal. What do yo think?

Sunday night reservation...

Thanks RGR and doona. I agree that on weekend nights like Friday and Saturday the pressure of doing the larger numbers affects the quality over a week night. Now I'm excited about Sunday night.

Sunday night reservation...

I have a reservation on a Sunday night at Babbo. Is there a chance of a less than great experience because it is a Sunday night? I know in the business that is usually a night many key people take off. Any Sunday night experiences anyone can share?

EMP or Cru? A Voce or Grammercy Tavern?

Food quality and creativity most important. Tasting menu most likely.

4 nights in Manhattan - need help deciding dinner spots

I have reservations at Gotham, EMP, Cru, Babbo, Degustation, and A Voce. Between the first 3 listed, which should I choose? I have an early reservation at Gotham and could go for appetizers before going to either EMP or Cru. Is A Voce and Degustation a good choice for days 3 and 4? I'm traveling with another Chef and we like to see as many dishes and restaurants as we can. Daytime is for dim sum, pizza, a great sandwich, good ethnic... Thanks
