40 Something overweight couple looking for nice lounge or quiet place to have drinks and some food after a show...

You don't mention cuisine... But here are some ideas:

French -- Lafayette or Les Halles
Italian -- Babbo, Maialino, Locanda Verde
Brunch -- Sarabeths
Asian -- Kuma Inn (byob), Chinatown for lunch

3 nights in the Financial District

Too bad your trip isn't next year! The Brookfield Place food hall will be open by them. I'd also suggest walking to Tribeca, it's not far at all. Many more choices there, as I'm sure you're aware. Marc Forgione, Locanda Verde, among others.

west village cocktails

Sorry to hijack this thread... but am looking for something very similar, though must be close walking distance to Thompson/Bleecker. Any ideas welcome.

Drinks with a colleague Financial District?

The Dead Rabbit is your place. A true cocktail bar. It's crowded downstairs and there are civilized tables upstairs. Decent pub menu. http://www.deadrabbitnyc.com/

Best Chinese Restaurant in Chinatown

I second this recommendation. The scallion pancake and the dumplings are delicious. The bakery a few doors down (Mei Li Wah) sells fantastic steamed barbeque pork buns.

West Village with in-laws and 2 kids....need dinner help!

Know you asked for WV, but since Locanda Verde is in Tribeca I would say that most restaurants in Tribeca are kid-friendly (so many in the neighborhood). The ROC and the Odeon especially come to mind. Both lively and nice food.

Appetizers & Drinks near the National Press Club

Hello... Not from the area but we have an upcoming family weekend in DC. There is a larger dinner event at the Press Club on Saturday night but a smaller group of us (8 adults, 3 children) would like to gather for a quick toast and some appetizers just prior to dinner. A view and child-friendly would be great, if possible. Casual is fine but would like to be able to reserve a space ahead of time. Where would be a nice place to do this, within walking distance? Many thanks for your ideas.

Venice restaurant gift card

I would like to get a gift card for some friends who just got married and just bought a house in Venice. I don't live in the area so could use some recommendations for a place with fantastic food, no real cuisine restrictions. Ideal ambiance would be intimate, friendly, casual, possibly romantic but doesn't have to be. Thanks!

40th bday party rec - private dining room

Agree on DBGB, just went to a private party there. I would also throw Alta on the list. Both are rooms off/through the kitchen which adds to unique-ness, I think.

Need recs in Chelsea or surrounding areas for tonight

Looking for dinner recos for tonight. We will be meeting friends whoa re driving in through the snow, they are staying near 7th Ave/ 20th St. We can take subway but trying to make it walkable for them. They are foodies from California, they love interesting cuisine, relaxed atmosphere and famous chefs but don't want to spend too much and definitely not a formal atmosphere. Maybe spend $125/couple. Also trying to avoid Italian, as one person is on a very low-carb diet plan. I thought maybe Craftbar or Crispo but nothing seems quite right...

ATHENS

Tell me more -- am going to be in Athens for 2 nights, 1 day on the tail end of my upcoming trip (Istanbul, Santorini, Athens). Also curious which neighborhoods of Athens you found best for lively and delicious dining options?

Buddy's in Annapolis?

Well, we ended up doing Buddy's anyway because we were downtown and the decision wasn't entirely mine. It was my first blue crab experience and I did like the presentation, atmosphere and was fine with the crabs themselves. But, the following day we went to the Crab Claw in St. Michaels -- those were markedly better! So, my Buddy's experience wasn't bad because I had nothing to compare it with at the time. I do love the crab experience! Thanks, everyone, for your input. Will definitely do Cantlers next time I am in area.

Buddy's in Annapolis?

Doing a one-night trip to Annapolis and we were recommended Buddy's for a casual place for crabs. Anyone have thoughts on that or other suggestions in downtown area? Thanks.

Wednesday wine specials

Anyone know of restaurants with Wednesday wine specials (half priced bottle night, etc)? I know a couple good places with Monday and Tuesday specials -- but how about Wednesday? Thinking a wine bar, Italian, tapas, sharing plates etc... thanks in advance!

GREAT but Affordable Sushi

I will second the Iron Sushi rec. I order it for delivery 2-3 times a month and it's fine (not overly fancy but better than average) to eat in as well.

Chicago-style pizza in NYC for inauguration office party; delivery to midtown

You might have to go with the chain Pizzeria Uno. Not as good as Lou Malnatis, Ginos, etc (I'm a native Chicagoan) but it should do.

here are the NYC locations: http://www.unos.com/location.html

Another idea is that Lou Malnatis will ship pizzas (packed in dry ice) that you can cook yourself: http://www.tastesofchicago.com/catego...

Tribeca pizza

A few weeks (months?) ago I heard about a new pizza place opening up in Tribeca -- not just a pizza joint but a restaurant with other Italian items, decent wine, etc. Does this ring a bell to anyone? I can't for the life of me remember the name and would like to try it.
