Good Eats at Lorimer + Metropolitan in Williamsburg?

That's not suprising. Yola is beyond terrible.

M Shanghai Bistro: What does everyone else think?

Heart it! The peashoots are really good and the mushu, which I have been eating since I was old enough to order, is the best I have ever had (although what gives w. the tortillas in place of Chinese pancakes?).

Choice Market opens in DUMBO (General Store content, too)

Is this the same Choice in Ft. Greene? I hate that place! It's a pretentious, yuppie infested hellhole. It's way overpriced and everything is pre-prepared and subpart.

Yummy Places in Midtown East

I have been put in charge of finding a place to eat for my 5 coworkers and I. We work in 30 Rock and don't want to stray too far. I want somewhere yummy and since it's expense account style, price isn't an option. Here's the other caveats: It has to have a "fun" atmosphere (per my bosslady) and a veggie option.

Thanks!

Hey Guys! Thanks for all your replies. Caretta seems to fit the bill perfectly. I'll let you know how they feel about it!

Hmm. Roy's is a chain with a a Hawaiian theme *shudder*. I checked out the Don Cesar's restuarant and the seafood offerings were meh at best. I was researching some restaurant or another in St. Pete and they were proud of the fact the offered "Hawaiian seafood flown in fresh daily". I won't even contemplate the environmental irresponsibility of that. The irony of flying in fresh seafood from Hawaii to anywhere in state that is an isthmus blows my mind. The Columbia sounds intriguing.

I guess the moral of the story is that my parents know what they are doing when it comes to eating seafood. ;) I wanted to get them a gift certificate somewhere fancy, but it looks like Peck's in Ozello kicks all these places asses when it comes to seafood.

Hello! I am looking for a fine dining restaurant w. a focus on seafood in the aforementioend areas. This is a gift for my seafood snob, Gulf-living parents. They love Pass-a-Grille and Peck's in Ozello is a classic. I am looking for somewhere a lot less casual w. a focus on fine dining and seafood. It would be great if it was on the water, too. Do places like this exist or does everywhere in this area have the super-casual Jimmy Buffett vibe (don't get me wrong - I love this about SW Florida)?

Thanks in advance?
