Greenport LI & Shelter Island

I had a great time in the North Folk and Shelter Island! I really enjoyed the wines in Paumanok Vineyards! I bought bottles of 2007 Chenin Blanc and the 2007 Semi Dry Riesling. They were both great summer wines. I also went to Peconic Bay Winery. I bought the Chardonnay and Riesling (new release). I usually do not like Chardonnay because I feel like it taste like rubber bands. This Riesling wasn't as sweet as the Paumanok but both are great!
We ate lunch at the Lobster Roll. My husband ordered the Fried Shrimp Platter and it was delicious! not too greasy. I ordered the Lobster Roll. I wasn't to fond of it. IMHO it had too much mayo and celery. I think fried food is best there.
The NorthFolk Table and Inn was excellent! I ordered the raw hamachi and seared foie gras. I loved this dish! Foie Gras was soo yummy and went well with the raw fish. My entree was the Roasted LI duck breast and Dessert was the Caramel Ice Cream and Chocolate tart. I am still drooling thinking about this meal! I only included a pic of the app because I devoured everything else!
I also ate at the Frisky Oyster. My entree was the Seared Sea Scallops with Spicy Eggplant puree and Carrot reduction. This dish was really good.
Had breakfast at Bruce's Cheese Emporium. If you go there you have to sit at the bar to get decent service. Alot of people left the tables but it was Labor day so it was busy. They have good pancakes and french toast!
When I went to Shelter Island I just missed Mark it with G. It closed at 12pm. I was really bummed. I only got to eat ice cream at Tuck shop and had a beer at the Sunset Beach Restaurant. That is the happening place.
I will def go back!
Thanks again!!

After Theater dinner/drinks

If you like Sake and Tofu you can try Kyotofu on ninth ave between 48th and 49th street. They have some Japanese tapas I had the chicken and tofu sliders, (yummy my husband doesn't like tofu and he liked this dish) pan-seared berkshire pork sausage, ( was not too greasy and very tasty) I tried one of the sake flights which contained 3 sakes (great) and had the tofu cheesecake( I liked this dish but my husband didn't).. Happy Eating!

Rickshaw Dumplings

I went last week to rickshaw and I hated it! I ordered the one of each of the dumpling shots. I received the dumplings within a minute and they were not heated evenly. some bites were cold and seemed like they were sitting there for a long time. the sauces were ok the texture of the dumpling and temperature was so off I was hungry but decided wisely to not order more. I love dumplings too I was so disappointed.

Greenport LI & Shelter Island

Hi,
I'm going to the Harborfront INN at Greenport during Labor day Weekend. I will arrive late after work on Friday so I was wondering if someone could kindly recommend a late dinner place, Saturday vineyards and lunch to go to... I have dinner on Saturday night at NorthFolk Table INN for dinner (what is the favorite dishes) Sunday - Shelter Island lunch recommendations..

Thanks Sorry if I'm asking alot of questions.

Manhattan Chocolate Tour

If you love truffles you should try roni-sue's chocolates in the LES in the Essex Market. I ordered truffles for my rehearsal dinner and she was very accommodating! I can't say what my favorite flavor is but you should definitely try Dark and Stormy, Margarita, mint, coconut, diablo, portly fig, blueberry. I'm addicted!!

Mermaid Inn

I went to the UWS Mermaid Inn and enjoyed the fried clams and lobster roll! The bread on the lobster roll wasn't the best but the lobster itself was delicious! The fried clams were cooked perfectly! Crispy and not greasy. I'd go back again.

Loft Restaurant good for Rehearsal dinner?

Hi,
I'm trying to find out what people think about the Loft Restaurant in the UWS.
I was thinking about holding a rehearsal dinner for under $50 pp for about 80 people. Do you think that is possible in NYC? I'm ok with any location in NYC and want something cool for people in their 30s.

Thanks much!
;)
