ISO: Cheap IQF fruit

Does anyone know of any wholesalers in NYC that sell frozen fruit in bulk?

new, good & cheap in the EV

Having dinner out with a buddy before a party on Saturday night in the East Village - trying to find something for $35 or less, not really involving drinks.

We usually hit up Momofuku, but with Kimchee stew off the menu for now, I'm looking for some place interesting. Anyone have any good low key suggestions?

the modern

I'm headed there saturday for my parent's 30th anniversary dinner. Does anyone have any suggestions between ordering a la carte vs. any of the tasting menus?

tasting menu @ the modern

I'm headed to The Modern on saturday night for my parents' 30th anniversary dinner. Has anyone had the tasting menus? Are they worth the cost, or is ordering a la carte (as my family usually does) a better value?

river cafe

I've planned River Cafe for my parents 30th anniversary this coming Saturday. I keep hearing some bad reviews. Is it really so touristy?

We've recently eaten at Grammercy Tavern and EMP, so I thought this might be different and special, but any other suggestions would be be welcome.

best greek salad

I'm in love with Periyali's, and recently had a fantastic salad at Snack Taverna.

Any other suggestions?

Momofuku Ssam: anything new/noteworthy?

i went last night, just ask the waiters whats new on the menu, they are all pretty helpful. And they had a new beer from IL I cant remember the name of, but it was also very nice.

Whats on the menu at Ko lately?

my original dining partner bailed and my replacement has to wear shorts - is that cool? Nothing about dress code is mentioned on the website but I feel like you can't...

Whats on the menu at Ko lately?

I went about 2 weeks after they opened and it was great, going back on Wednesday and curious to see what's been in rotation in the last few weeks.

Also curious about the wine pairings if anyone has any new info?

Israeli Restaurant & Falafel

12 Chairs cafe on Macdougal & Houston is a great israeli cafe, their hummus & falafel platter is unmatched, they serve a fantastic brunch too with great sandwiches and salads.

Graduation Dinner

5 people, we can totally splurge. We're adventurous nyc diners, we just dont want to go somewhere that requires jackets and want to walk out happy.

Unfortunately my father doesn't really eat sushi.

Graduation Dinner

I am from NY, and my brother is graduating from the university of miami shortly and I need to book a place to celebrate for dinner with the family afterwards.

Does anyone have any recommendations in Coral Gables or somewhere not terribly far from there?

west coast style frozen yogurt

I'm from LA and cant find the frozen yogurt (ie. chemical low calorie soft servy dessert) other than junk like pinkberry and tasti-d-lite.

Is there any substitute in NYC?

grand sichuan chelsea - what and how much to order for 6?

i live off the spicy diced chicken with cucumbers, crabmeat and porksoup dumplings, the crispy whole fish, red cooking pork with chestnuts, chicken with chinese broccoli, pork fried rice, etc. Make sure to bring some wine (reisling, gruner veltliner) too, their corkage is incredibly low.

Grand Sichuan - Aui Zhou chicken?
