Need help! Pick 4 of these restaurants...

Skip Norma's and Lombardi's/Grimaldi's. For pizza, I recommend Franny's in Brooklyn. Also recommend Peter Luger, Grammercy Tavern (for lunch or dinner), Shake Shack, Prune, and Lupa (Batali restaurant but not as fancy as Babbo). Go to Blue Ribbon for a very late nite meal (open till 4 a.m.). On your next trip to NYC when your wife isn't pregnant, definitely go to Le Bernardin!

Late Friday Dinner in Brooklyn

For Brooklyn late night dining, I can only think of Blue Ribbon on 5th Ave. at 1st Street. Large menu (including raw bar), very good food (but can be pricy), and great atmosphere.

Fort Greene Coffee house Recommendation

Any recommendations for a lowkey comfortable coffee house in Fort Greene where I can kill a couple of hours on the weekend, preferably near BAM? Thanks.

Need late night eats recommendation.

Thanks for the recommendations. Good Dog sounds like the best bet. I definitely will try Capogiro while I'm there though.

Spending 1 week in SF. Need dining recommendations.

I'm spending one week in SF and am looking for some delicious dining recommendations. Nothing fancy (no restaurants requiring a jacket and tie). Especially looking for suggestions for dim sum, sushi, korean, and seafood, but am interested in all cuisines. Also planning to go to Marin County and drive down Route 1 so any recommendations there would be appreciated. Thanks.

Recommendations for Tuscon, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Sedona

Hunt,

All I'm looking for is some great food. No limitations on price (although I don't want to spend $100 on every meal). I like all different cuisines and I have no food limitations. I'm not a huge fan of mexican/southwestern fare (although this will be my first time to this area of the country, so that may change), so I wouldn't want to have that type of cuisine for every meal. I'm traveling with a friend so "family style" eating is pretty much out. All in all, I just want some delicious meals while I'm out there. Oh, are there any korean restaurants? I try to visit a korean restaurant in every city I visit if they have one.

Recommendations for Tuscon, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Sedona

I will be in the Tuscon area for 2 nights, and the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Sedona area for 2 nights. Any recommendations for "must go to" places to eat. Thanks.

Date in Brooklyn

It depends on whether you and your date want to do something afterwards, i.e. nice stroll, romantic and quiet garden, etc. . . If you are interested in places that just have some really good food, I'd suggest Convivium Osteria in Park Slope, Blue Ribbon, Applewood. Convivium is not however modern. Blue Ribbon is trendy and loud, but a fun place for dinner. Applewood uses organic and local ingredients. I do not recommend Robin Du Bois. The food is not great. Franny's has great pizza. If you're looking for a nice neighborhood where you can stroll around in, choose a place in Bay Ridge or Brooklyn Heights.

Seafood restaurant in DC

I'm in DC for one night and I'm looking for a great seafood restaurant by the water preferably. Price range for entrees is between $20-$30. Doesn't need to be trendy. Would refer something not too loud. Any suggestions?

Arthur Avenue - where to go?

I also recommend Mike's for great sandwiches and provisions. Roberto's is excellent. Also famous for both the vibe and food is Dominicks, Very old school. Communal tables, no menus, wine in short glasses, and the waiter at the end of the meal pretty much makes up the bill.

St. Patrick's Day Lunch with Mom

Need a recommendation to take Mom for a not too expensive lunch after the St. Patrick's Day Parade that is not crazy loud and full of drunks.
