Great Affordable eats near 55th St and 5th Ave...HELP!

JoJo near Lex and 64th may be a little out of the way… but they
have a great lunch for $28….. plus the place is very conducive
for conversation, etc.

Food near Sloan-Kettering (for lunch)

If they like dim sum Cafe Evergreen on 1st avenue between 73rd and 74th (west side of street) is good. (Used to be at
69th and 1st which was really convenient for Sloan Kettering.
That is, if they'll be on York Avenue.)

Quintessential NYC (Manhattan) fare

If you're going to the Neue Galerie don't forget to try the
Cafe Sabarsky. I don't think they take reservations so if you want lunch aim for an early time.

Restaurant 55th and 7th Avenue

My dentist is on that block -:) There's Carnegie Deli...
Redeye Grill (at 56th), Molyvos (Greek.. I gather a tad pricey)
a popular Thai, Topaz, on 56th behind Carnegie Hall.
Probably lots of others....
I've been to Redeye Grill many times with friends. It's large,
decent food, good service.

Any idea where to get lump crab cakes in New York?

I've never had Baltimore crab cakes -:( But, Dorian, a seafood store on York and 84th and delicious crab cakes. Last time I checked they were $8.50 each but worth it.

upper east side food shopping

Eli's chicken is good... spoiled me for anything else.

A great fish store is Dorian's on York at 84th Street. She's an alumna of the old Rosedale fish market and has the same pristine standards. Not cheap but worth it. They also deliver.

(212) 535-2256 *That's between 83rd and 84th.)

fishmonger UES

The fish dept at Citarella is great and about 10 times the size of Dorian's. (She's an alumna of the late great lamented Rosedale.) However all her stuff is top drawer.... can't imagine better crab cakes (even tho I have to take out a loan to buy them -:)

The best fish is at Dorian's on York Avenue....between 83 and 84th. Very expensive and they do deliver.

Meeting place for group in central Manhattan

Unknown at this point. Probably between 10 -20. Also would be on a Thursday night.

Meeting place for group in central Manhattan

A group of people from an internet board (most of whom have never met) want to meet for drinks in the fall. Suggestions have been the Campbell Apartment and some places in the 80's. The group seems to be drawn from the greater metropolitan area. Any suggestions for a central location like the Campbell (which sounds like it might be too noisy, etc.) that would be convenient for most people in town or traveling from the burbs?

Help! Looking for a medium priced restaurant in the midtown west area ( 54th - 58th, 8th or 9th ave)

You might check out the Red Eye Grill at 56th and 7th... it's a large place with nice food.

Good Food Shopping near 88th and York

Ottomanelli is at 82nd and York. For good... but expensive fish.... there is Dorian's on York between 83rd and 84th. The best prices for wine, etc. are Yorkshire Liquors at 1st and 85th. A good old fashioned bakery is Glaser's on First near 87th Street. The Gristedes at York and 86th is good for staples... but otherwise a pretty dreadful store.
When all else fails there's Fresh Direct!

Suggestions - Upper East Side

Sunday morning... if he wants a big breakfast/brunch... he should go to Eli's Vinegar Factory just around he corner on 91st between York and 1st.On the second floor there's a rather rustic spot serving delicious stuff at the usual Eli price. -:)

Cafe Evergreen near 69th and 1st has decent Chinese. But their dim sum is especially good. Good for delivery, etc. and their wine is decent.

food shopping ideas 76th and FIrst

Eli's is at 80th and Third Avenue.....and his bread can't be beat. Dorian is expensive.... but worth it. (She's a Rosedale alumna. ) And Dorian, herself, is an absolutely delightful person.

restaurant suggestions near 76th and first ave

On 69th and First... Cafe Evergreen. Decent Chinese... but best for dim sum. You could make a meal of the dim sum. Also.. decent wine. And you could pick up lots of good food at Agata and Valentina on 1st and 79th.

Visiting Upper East Side - restaurant suggestion? Sushi?

If all this info boggles the mind and at the end of the day your just tired and hungry... go around the corner to York Grill on 89th and York. Nothing special,.. but good food in a pleasant atmosphere.
Or, if you have the energy to walk... Cafe d'Alsace on 2nd and 88th. (Beer and French.)
