Where to buy cheese curds?

Even though this is an old post, thank you everyone who's updated it! fresh curds *do* taste so much different than refrigerated, which is usually what I'm able to get.

Scottish food in Manhattan?

There's St. Andrews around the Theather District. I don't know how authentically good it is, but I've had their haggis and the waiters/waitresses were all Scottish. :)

Good Eats near Pulqueria? Also, lounge or rooftop bar nearby?

So would you say Nom Wah over Xi'An Famous? Any recs on what to order?

Casual Italian Lunch in Manhattan?

Any limitation location wise? There's some decent casual Italian in the upper-30s near 8th, so you're not too far from the 7, either.

Good Eats near Pulqueria? Also, lounge or rooftop bar nearby?

I have a couple of friends visiting from California, and one from Ohio. I thought we'd do dinner and drinks at Pulqueria but I've only had drinks there before, and after reading the reviews on the board, I'm not sure dinner there is really worth it. So, I wanted to just stick to drinks at Pulqueria, and maybe move to dinner nearby. Cheaper is preferable (but up to mid-$20 entree is a hard max).

Also, any cool spots to take out-of-towners in that area? We went to the rooftop of the Gansevoort and had dinner at Empellon last night (another reason to nix dinner at Pulqueria, and also why cheaper is preferable--Californians do not take kindly to paying anywhere in the teens for two tacos), but any fun place would do. Had thought about Water Taxi Beach but Govener's Island closes early.

Penelope's or Rare for 30th Birthday Dinner?

I've never been there, and in my search saw it a good bit so I might have to make a trip. But yeah, with the weather the way it's been, probably not the way to go.

Penelope's or Rare for 30th Birthday Dinner?

I was leaning toward Rare because of the rooftop bar. It doesn't have to be anywhere fancy--if I'm going for the great food I'd rather wait to go with my husband and really enjoy it than take a crowd--but it would be nice to have something fun, decent, and not expensive. Lazzara's was on my short list, but Rare seemed more summery.

Penelope's or Rare for 30th Birthday Dinner?

I'm looking for a place to have dinner before heading out for a night of karaoke (at 38th between 5th and 6th) Saturday night and am having a hard time. I think it'll be around 10 people or so; don't want anything too expensive but I am looking for something festive (30!) so cheap to moderate works. I'm just unfamiliar with the neighborhood for anything except Korean (which we're not doing because we just had a BBQ dinner there). Would Penelope or Rare better fit the bill? Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Where to buy cheese curds?

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Montreal and I've got a hankering for poutine. I tried searching the boards but didn't have any luck, so just wanted to ask, where should I buy cheese curds in Manhattan? Can I just get them at any cheese shop?

Cheap Eats near Theater District / Times Square?

Thanks for the awesome suggestions from everyone. We'll have to hit as many as we can!

Cheap Eats near Theater District / Times Square?

Nothing particular; it's just that we just had Mexican, so we're trying to switch it up.

Cheap Eats near Theater District / Times Square?

We're going to catch a show midweek on 42nd and are looking for some place cheap nearby to eat afterwards. We've already done our expensive meal for the week so I am talking about as cheap as it can get. I've searched the boards and found a lot of recs for nearby Mexican places, but I'm not to excited about Mexican right now. Some people recommended some nearby barbecue as well; any opinions?

We're aiming to spend ~$30 or so (less preferably), for two.

Thanks!

Dinner, drinks around midtown on a Friday night (tonight!)?

I'm meeting up with a group of friends (6 in total) tonight for drinks/dinner and then a movie. We wanted to stay more or less near midtown since we need to be at the Ziegfeld by 9, 9:30ish. I searched the boards but didn't find anythying. Anyone have any suggestions for a decent place for dinner and drinks? Or, a place for drinks and somewhere nearby for dinner? No dietary restrictions, just want it to be easy to get back to the Ziegfeld (54th between 6th and 7th). Ideas? Thanks!
