Repurposing Brownies-Help!

They'd make an amazing crust for a no-bake pie. Also, you could cut them into small pieces, freeze, and use as add-ins for ice cream.

A veggie side to go with meatloaf cupcakes for April Fools?

How about a green vegetable puree in a crust that looks like a Key Lime Pie?

These banana blondies are great. Delicious and they cut into really nice pieces.

Non traditional Bridal Shower

What about a place like King Spa in Palisades Park? http://kingsaunanj.com/ Would be fun for a group and they have pretty good food. I haven't been to this location, but to the one in College Point, Queens, and saw lots of groups there. (http://spacastleusa.com/ny/

)

Have fun.

Food items coupled with non food items

How about Welch's jelly that came in the Flintstone's glasses? I know we had an entire set when I was a kid in the '60s.

Hellmann's Mayonnaise substitute in the New York area?

Trader Joe's mayo is good, and was number 2 on this list from Serious Eats. (Kraft was number one, TJ's/Duke's tied for two, and Hellman's three.)

Columbia Presbyterian hospital area

I live in the neighborhood, so know it better for dinner than for lunch, but here are a few recommendations. Hope these help. There are lots of mom-and-pop places, too.

Heights Tavern at 164 and Broadway is good. Can be a bit noisy at night (especially on the weekends). Same owner as Harlem Tavern. http://heightstavernnyc.com/

Antika, Broadway between 164 and 165. Good brick oven pizza and Italian dishes. http://www.antikapizzeria.com/

Malecon, Broadway at 175. Good Dominican food, very popular. http://maleconrestaurants.com/

Morningside Hts - recommendable for dinner?

Awash (Ethiopian) on Amsterdam and 106.
Thai Market on Amsterdam between 107 and 108.
Bistro Ten18 at Amsterdam and 110.

Does any place exist where you can smoke a cigar and have a cocktail?

There's Papa Juan's Cigar Bar in West Harlem (Broadway around 141st) that's BYOB. Don't think there's food there, but there are a fair number of decent restaurants in the neighborhood now.

mini sandwiches for SuperBowl

I think you could easily adapt this Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with Blue Cheese Slaw into mini sandwiches. The recipe calls for frying the chicken, but I used grilled chicken breasts, then shredded. Very tasty.
