Anniversary Dinner

Highly recommend Bouley -- warm service, great food, and an affordable Prix Fixe that has been part of my wife's and my first-date anniversary every year since we met.

Cold Spring dining suggestions?

Just back from the trip -- can't say enough good things about Le Bouchon -- service was exceptional and they make a helluva steak frites -- and Cathryn's was delightful as well (great salads, also a fabulous potato gnocchi w/lamb ragu and a chicken dish with olives that was fantastically flavorful).

thanks for the great suggestions!

Cold Spring dining suggestions?

Going to Le Bouchon on Saturday, probably going to Cathryn's as well. Thanks to you both for the great suggestions.

Cold Spring dining suggestions?

Beloved spouse and I are weekending in Cold Spring and I was hoping one of the Hounds might have recommendations of places to seek out --- or avoid -- here. We're going sans car, so walking distance is a major plus.

Thanks!

Javits Center restaurants (hah!)

I thought Daisy May's didn't have seating -- was I mistaken?

Nicaraguan food near Palace Hotel?

By the way, I ended up going to Nicaragua Restaurant and it was great. English not spoken so much (which was fine), weird foreign sodas (incredibly sweet) and delicious food -- fantastic corn dishes, beef and chicken all great -- which I had for takeout as it was too close to closing for an in-restaurant meal.

Javits Center restaurants (hah!)

I need to plan a larger group dinner (15 or so people) near a conference at the Javits Center. Any suggestions for something good -- and not too ultra-spendy -- between Javits and the Theatre District? I probably want to avoid the TD proper.

Many thanks, all. I'll report back after I explore.

Nicaraguan food near Palace Hotel?

Unless the magazine (Time Out NY) got it wrong, our founder was talking about Nicaraguan food.

But don't get me wrong, I'd welcome a good Salavdoran suggestion as well. It's another cuisine NYC doesn't have much of.

Thanks!

Nicaraguan food near Palace Hotel?

Visiting from NYC next week and, according to Jim Leff, one cuisine SF offers in abundance that we New Yorkers don't have at all is Nicaraguan fod. Anyone have any suggestions in the nabe of the Palace Hotel?

Trying to avoid renting a car, but am willing to walk great distances to expand my horizons.
