Best Steak Tartare in Manhattan???

I love steak tartare and look for new places to try all the time. So far, the best steak tartare I have found in the city is at Jacques Bistro on East 85th street. Can anyone else recommend really, really good steak tartare for me to try? Thanks so much!

Commerce for Dinner on Sat night - Review

I went for dinner on Friday. We too had a great server. She was wonderful and the food was very good. We were so disappointed in the wine though. We went there in part for great wine. The wine was SO COLD. It was almost ridiculous. We told the Sommelier and he was really clueless. A great establishment like that should have a very good Sommelier. That being said, he came back like 30 minutes later (the wine was still so cold-even in our glasses) and poured into a decanter. No help, as the decanter was freezing cold on its own, did he not have a wine brain or brain at that. All in all, we drank the cold wine and were so disappointed (was an expensive bottle too-not that it makes a difference).

Help - My office moved to 35th and 8th!

Yuck, I used to work there too, same problem with lunch spots. At 37th and 8th there is Chef Yu. It is a nice atmosphere for lunch, not expensive. I am not saying the food is great, but it's not bad at all. Only place I really found that is quick, nice and sit down- not real expensive around there.

Restaurant For Tonight- casual, fun, cool atmosphere for 9 people, below 14th street?

Hey All, looking for a restaurant that is casual, fun and cool for 9 people to have food and drink later tonight around 10:30pm or 11pm, downtown (below 14th street). Wanted to go to Schiller's but can't get a table of that size at that time. Recommendations of something similar in price and atmosphere would be greatly appreciated.

TGIF! Cheers.

Bridal Shower - brunch or tea

You mentioned a Tea place...... I haven't been there in a long time, so make sure it's still there, but the TSalon at 20th btw 5th and Broadway is a great place for tea. check about the 10 people, but it's an idea.

looking for cozy italian place

Hey, don't be discouraged by your price point! We are all on a budget these days.

On the upper east side, not too far from the MET, try Sotto Cinque (86th btw 2nd & 1st).
It has a nice atmosphere for what you are asking and in your price range.

DIVE BARS AND CHEAP GREAT FOOD

Well..there are a bunch of dive bars in NYC. The Patriot is as good as it gets!
Broadway and Chambers area. Cheap drinks..I would be scared to try the food here. :)

Out of town friend in town....today

Hey all- I have a friend in town I haven't seen in years. Picking a restaurant should be easy, but for some reason, it isn't today. :(

She likes all foods, except Indian. She just asked for a fun atmosphere with good food. I was thinking, mexican/latin, italian, or american type fare...japanese is fine too. Price isn't an issue, but moderate is cool with me. We are meeting today, Sunday at 6pm, so I don't know many "fun type scenes" on a Sunday at 6pm. Any suggestions?

Location is open. I guess I prefer east side from 14th street to 90th street. (I am open to that though). Thank you in advance for your help!

Financial District Lunch?

Not a lot of good restaurants down there....they opened a HARU about year or so ago and not busy, good atmosphere, lots of room.

Best Tasting Menu for under $150?

I can't remember how much it was per person, but Babbo was excellent. I would highly recommend it.

Holiday Ambiance - midtown/uptown

If you are all around the city that day, head to Little Italy. Every where down there is decorated very nicely during the Holidays. And you can choose from a price range of many restaurants.
