Weekday Brunch in Soho - New Spot?

Please help. I need to set up a 10:30 am client meeting for tomorrow morning. They want to do "brunch" but I'm sure breakfast would be ok. I'm looking for something new and exciting, hip or just plain good and tasty.

Ideal location is between 60 thompson (their hotel) and broadway and Houston (where they have a 1pm meeting). Nearby is ok too as I don't know many spots open that early.....

Nov. Birthday Trip

Hi there,

Visiting from NY for my mom's 65th birthday Nov. 3-7. We're staying at the W in the French Quarter. She's a caterer/foodie so I want to have some good meals planned. So far I'm thinking:

Sat dinner: Nola
Sunday brunch: TBD
Monday dinner: August
Tuesday dinner: Delmonico

We'll definitely do Cafe du Monde for breakfast one day. I guess I need some lunch suggestions but with these big dinners I really want to keep lunch on the light side (except brunch where i guess I need a light dinner.....)

Does this sound ok or do you have any suggestions. I'd love our meals to make us say "wow" out loud.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

B-day Dinner at Daniel??

Taking my mom for her 65th. Are there any must order dishes? Do you know if they offer kitchen tours or anything special?

Foodie Cruise/Trip from NYC??

I'd like to take my mom on a short trip for her 65th B-day. I'm looking for a foodie friendly cruise or destination that leaves from NYC or is less than 2 hours away. She's a caterer so she's more about the food/creative presentation than anything else. I heard about a one-night cruise AMEX is sponsoring in Dec. with Bobby Flay but I'm still looking for ideas. I'd really like to wow her. All suggestions are much appreciated!!

Cooking Present for Foodie??

Thanks everyone! These are great ideas. Its actually a bday present for my mom so I was leaning toward something we could do together rather than a physical present. That cruise could be a great option. And the cheese classes sound great too.

Cooking Present for Foodie??

Can anyone recommend a bday present for a foodie who just happens to be a caterer? Last year we took a course at ICE together and it was great fun. I would be open to events where chefs do a demo and then we have a meal but I don't know where to start. Macy's has a few but I'm not sure how they'd rate.

Low Key but Yummy for Saturday

Any cuisine would work. There is one vegetarian in the group. As for budget, maybe $10-25 entrees with a max of $75 for meal, beverages, tax and tip.

Low Key but Yummy for Saturday

Some of my college friends and I will be having a mini reunion dinner. Where can we go for a good meal in an un-rushed setting? Union Square or nearby preferred.

South Beach B-day Spot for Food Lover?

Hi All,
Heading from NYC to South Beach to celebrate my boyfriend's bday and our anniversary. Can you recommend some delicious spots for us to try? One can be super fancy (maybe $400 max) the other can be trendy or fun but both should be great food/atmosphere.
Thank you!!

O'Neill's Irish Pub (burgers)?

You're taking about O'Neill's on 3rd and 45th right? www.

I work around the corner and we go there all the time for the $10 burger specials each month. It's really the best value in town.

What did you think about the october burger?

cooking school or wine/scotch tasting dinner for fancy boyfriend. HELP!

I was wondering if you have any great suggestions for cooking classes in nyc. My boyfriend is turning 40 and I'd like to sign him up for something special for an intermediate/advanced level. He likes to eat/drink too so if you know of any great wine dinners or scotch tasting dinners end of Oct. any thoughts would be much appreciated. He's a fancy pants kinda guy and loves the brandy library and that kinda stuff. Help!
