Birthday Dinner with husband - Maialano, Scarpetta, Breslin?

I'm a total foodie at heart but my budget prevents me from eating out too often - want to go someplace delicious - but fun. And somewhere I haven't been (back in they day, I went to all the classics - Gramcercy, Gotham etc.) Maialano? Scarpetta? Breslin?

Bouley or Corton?

Annual birthday dinner coming up - deciding between Bouley and Corton - because we haven't been to either one. Does Bouley still measure up to its reputation?

Dinner for parents - Moneky Bar?

Looking for a restaurant for my parents - they are foodies in the sense that they like to try new restaurants, but they aren't looking for a "scene" - for example, they'd love to try Locanda Verde but it's way to crazy for them. I was thinking Monkey Bar since it's under new management?

Tarry Lodge - Noisy?

Going out for a date night with my husband on Friday night. Looking for a nice/fun night out but since we so rarely get to so this, I don't want to go if we are going to be shouting at eachother in order to be heard. Can anyone let me know what the noise level is like?

Birthday Dinner in Westchester

I have a meat and potatoes guy on my hands - so I know I can go to Gabriele's in Greenwich or Willet house in Port Chester. But I'd love to find something other than a steakhouse. Cookery looks great - but I don't see steak on the menu. Any other suggestions? I'm even open to Arthur Avenue - Roberto's maybe?

Tribeca Grill?

Anyone been to Tribeca Grill lately? Looking to take my husband out for a birthday dinner - he's a real meat and potatoes guy but I'd like someplace other than a "steakhouse". Looked at Gramercy Tavern and Gotham Bar and Grill but couldn't find one appetizer he'd eat - think maytag salad, caesar salad to start.

Best place to get a birthday cake for husbands 40th bday, couple from out of town.

Try Lulu Cake Boutique on 8th Avenue (between 15th and 16th)
They have gorgeous cakes (custom made if you want) - and unlike some other places, they actually taste really good.

Trendy restaurant with great food

Have some friends coming in from Los Angeles - they have teenage kids, but the kids eat everything. They are looking for a hip place to go - someplace with a scene. I recommended Locanda Verde. Anyone else have any other suggestions.

Looking for Best Almond Croissant

I'm an almond paste junkie - but many almond croissants and desserts are often dry. I'm looking for some pastries with an abundance of almond paste.
