Good places for crabs in NYC?

I think you have to slog out to Sheepshead or the Shore. I've done Mermaid Inn's "boil" and been to Back Forty and it doesn't stack up to Clemente's. In fact the crabs at Mermaid were horrendously small, watery and null of lump crabmeat. But I'm always open to trying something new and will definitely check out Hammer and Claws.

Indian or Sushi Place on UWS for Thursday Night Date

I'll second (or third?) Momoya. Sushi is more reasonably priced than Neo and I like the atmosphere better. It's an appropriate date place. The back seating area has more secluded tables (in the corners).

I walked by last Sunday (oct 19) and it was still not open, but there were people inside working on getting the place ready.

UWS casual restaurant for me & sophisticated 19-YO bro?

The legal drinking age is 21 and most places enforce that. Especially on the UWS where they are a high concentration of college style bars on Amsterdam Ave. If a waiter/server serves wine to someone under 21, then they are putting themselves at risk and most will ID.

When is Kefi moving?

They are now estimating a mid-September move. After they move Kefi to Columbus, management will be keeping the space and changing it to an American Bistro style restaraunt.

French Toast

Fred's - 83rd & Amsterdam (there could be a wait, not sure how obnoxious).

71st & Amsterdam

In no particular order, these are places that you should check out:

Cesca - 75th & Amsterdam
Celeste - Amsterdam near 84th
Kefi - 79th between Broadway & Amsterdam

Wine bar recs

And it's cousin Barcibo right around the corner on 70th and Broadway is just as good (and has a little more space).

Authentic Sushi

Lunch at Yasuda's is a great value.

East Village Sushi

Not the best quality, but dining at Cube 63 on Clinton St. was a very cool experience. They don't have a liquor license so it is BYOB/W/L. Very small space, but the staff was very nice and they have creative rolls.
