Italian in West Village or Tribeca?

I've been hearing buzz for a new Italian restaurant that's either in the west village or tribeca but don't know the name. Apparently this is the new place to see and be seen. Anyone have any idea which place this is?

Kosher Donuts?

Does anyone have a place they can recommend for kosher donuts in any part of the greater LA area? Preferably somewhere that has more than just a couple flavors but MUST be kosher. Thanks for your help!

Where can I find cajeta?

Hi, I'm looking for cajeta near Union Square. Surrounding areas are fine but I'm trying not to veer too far from home for this product. Any ideas?

Meet the parents dinner

Price isn't really an issue as long as it isn't completely outrageous. Dinner is for later this month.

Meet the parents dinner

We're introducing our respective parents for the first time over dinner in the city. We're looking for something that's good but not too fancy, comfortable casual, and definitely not too loud. We don't want to be packed in close next to another table and they definitely need to accommodate 6 (preferably a round table). Thanks!

Where to find grade B maple syrup?

I'm looking for grade B maple syrup and can't seem to find it anywhere. I thought Whole Foods and Trader Joes would easily have it but was shocked to see they only had grade A. Are there any specialty food stores you can think of that would have it? Union square and surrounding areas preferred but I'll venture out farther to find it. Thanks!

Osteria or Porcini?

Coming into town for one night only. Heard great things about both, where am I going to be overall most satisfied?

1 night in Philly, where should I go?

After some more research, which is better: Osteria or Amis?

1 night in Philly, where should I go?

I'm looking for a can't miss, must visit, great Philly restaurant for dinner. Something like Vetri but not quite as pricey. Staying right by city hall if that helps at all.

Thursday Nights

I remember that there are always fun food related Thursday night activities going on all over the city. I can think of grilled cheese night at Campanile and the Yamashiro night market that reopens next week. What else am I missing?

Meet the parents dinner

I'm looking for a good place on the westside to introduce my boyfriend to my parents for the first time. Nothing too fancy, but a good night out. We want a place with a round table (for 5) so everyone can be in on the conversation. And most important, nothing too loud! Any recs?

Date place near 3rd St?

Looking for something along the lines of House Cafe (on Beverly Blvd) or Taste (on Melrose) in terms of area, price, ambiance. Anything else like these come to mind?

Classic LA restaurant

For my brother's birthday this year, instead of going to the hip newest place, he wants to go old school and try something that's been around a long time. We're thinking along the lines of The Palm, Gladstones, Dan Tanas, Benihana....just something fun and maybe almost forgotten. Any ideas?

Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart

[moved from Pumpkin Cheesecake thread on the Los Angles board: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6661... ] - The Chowhound Team

Make your own! This Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart from Ina Garten is better than cheesecake, easy to make, and you can even buy the graham crust already made from the supermarket. I get asked by my family to make it every year!

Help! Where To Get The Best Cake?

The cakes at VBS are so not worth the price. Their cakes are overly sweet, I've heard of people getting cakes that are frozen in the middle, and I question just how fresh they really are. Also, apparently their prices are so high because they claim to be using high quality ingredients when really they just use Hershy's!

searching for best veal parm sandwich anywhere

Nice dinner - Girasole, Hungry Cat, Chameau, Animal, Campanile or Grace?

Campanile is such an LA staple. Hard to imagine coming here, eating well and not going to Campanile. Plus Suzanne Goin from Lucques was the former chef at Campanile so you'll be getting a change while still enjoying the seasonal market driven menu that Mark Peel specializes in. But as another option, you could also always go to Goin's AOC (small plates) which is one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

Looking for passion fruit paste or puree

Surfas in Culver City has a huge selection of various purees. Not sure about passion fruit (though I expect that they would carry it), but you can always call to check.
