Need Rec's for mother's birthday dinner- 20 mile radius of Rhinebeck NY

Want to take my 88 yo mother to dinner around Rhinebeck Area, is the Beekman Arms still a good choice and can you please recommend other nice restaurants in that area?

Thanks in advance!!

Good pitstop on the way to Pt. Judith R.I from Brooklyn N.Y

We are hoping to stop at either a great breakfast/diner/lunchonette on the way to the Block Island ferry.The requirements are that it has to be
1.)not far from 95
2.)kid friendly
3.)Somewhere in CT.
We were hoping to eat pizza in New Haven,but we need to be at the ferry around lunchtime.
Thank you for your help!

Grocery Store that turns into a restaurant at night

Or maybe you are thinking of Marlow & Sons in Wiliamsburg?

Hi- You can get a very lovely Passover cake at Financier Patisserie in Lower Manhattan

I know they don't have an actual "Birthday Cake" for passover,but they can personalize a Passover cake for you. Best of Luck.

WILLIAMSBURG restaurant-by the water-wooden communal tables-cheeses?

Sounds Like it could be SweetWater, because it is close to Galapagos (which is probably the Big Nite Club)??
Good Luck!

Biscuit BBQ is opening tonight on 5th Ave. & President

The chef went to a new restaurant in Manhattan,located in The Port Authority Bus Terminal called
"Metro Marche"I think it is owned by the same people who own Cafe Alsace and Nice Matin.It is a French Bistro along with ToGo items,to take along on your travels.

Flatbush Farm - good tuna belly and lamb

I agree Flatbush Farm has amazing food.I was there last week with a group of friends and we all thought it was by far one of the best meals we've had in a long time.
I had the pork goulash,complete with homemade noodles and Heirloom Tomato salad.
The space is really nice too,I will surely go back.

Chowish Lunch Near Theater District

Eventhough you said no Big Italian Lunches, I would still reccomend ViceVersa 325 w.51st (8th & 9th).The food is lighter and they have the nicest garden.
