ORDERING AT PHILIPPE-best way for 2?

Agreed, however this is the one place he has been dying to try and it is a special birthday occasion, so we are going....I've heard great things, and am prepared for the expensive prices...just wondering in regards to ordering, and portion size- as I do hear they try to upsell you.

It is for dinner not lunch

ORDERING AT PHILIPPE-best way for 2?

I am going to Philippe tonight, and was wondering the best way to order for 2 people. Neither of us have been there. My boyfriend is a BIG meat/shrimp eater, me not so much. I prefer Chicken/veggies. What would be the best way to order ?

Cooking class for couples?

I am looking for a couples cooking class as well, but something that is a little more fun, like BYOB and not too structured. We are both not great cooks, so something a bit easier

Thanks

Padre Figlio - Anyone been yet?

I tried it a while back. While it is a huge gorgeous restaurant, it was EMPTY. The food happened to be very good, a little on the pricey side...wouldn't die to go back, but I live right there so it's convenient. I would suggest trying El Pote Rincon on 38th and 2nd.

Birthday Dinner-Upscale Chinese...Philippe, Mr. Chow, or somewhere else? HELP

Taking my boyfriend out for his birthday. He loves Chinese food, so looking to try one of the more upscale Chinese places. Is it worth it to go to Mr. Chow or Philippe, or are there any other just as good or better places.
Thanks!

Mediterranian / Greek - NYC

I am a big fan of Shish-Kebab on LI. I would say that Ali Baba on 34th has a pretty similar menu. It is rather small, but it has great food. They have an outside garden that may be able to hold 20+
