All Appetizer Seder

We're having a non-traditional seder and I'd like to serve everything appetizer-style. Some ideas we've come up with already: kugel in mini muffin tins, horseradish crusted salmon bites, gefilte fish terrine, and maybe brisket skewers with olives...Anyone out there have any other creative ideas? Big thanks!!!

Need a "fancy" salmon loaf recipe!

Desperately seeking a salmon loaf recipe that is a little fancier than the rest - maybe with crab, shrimp and a dill sauce? Or maybe a loaf with interesting spices?

Does anyone have a good salmon loaf recipe?

Big thanks!

Blue Hill/Stone Barns OR Basement Bistro

Acknowledging that it is difficult to get reservations at both Blue Hill/Stone Barns and at Basement Bistro....and I only have the time and patience to try to get resys at one....for which one should I bust my arse to get reservations?

Help! Why isn't there a single good chinese delivery restaurant in the East Village?

We order from Yummy House at least once a week and are NEVER disappointed.

Parents Dinner - 8 People - Private Room

My husband (!) and I eloped a couple of weeks ago and are now planning a dinner for all of our parents to meet. There may be a little intrigue as my mom/dad haven't seen each other for 22 years and my husband's mom/dad haven't seen each other for 15 years - since his dad left his mom for his mistress - who will also be at the dinner. So looking for a place that doesn't have many knives in easy reach (ha!), not in a basement or too stuffy b/c it'll be in June, and classy but not oh-my-goodness expensive. Many thanks in advance for your help!

Artichoke Pizza Ingredients

Can anyone venture a guess to the secret magical ingredients? We asked, but they were less than forthcoming. Need to know for a severely allergic friend.

Huge thanks for all of your suggestions!

Behind Setagaya - Oriental Spoon

We have been regulars at Oriental Spoon, the oft-forgotten restaurant behind the ever-so popular Ramen Setagaya, since it opened. This is a true treasure deserving of a space on all the "best restaurants" lists. Spoon is Pan-Asian and has exquisite sushi, amazing noodles, the best bok choy in the world, and tons of other savories. And the prices and staff and decor are all amazing, too. This isn't shill - for real - I just live around the corner and really truly want this restaurant to succeed because it really is that wonderful. So don't wait in line for ramen - go straight through the doors to the back for an amazing culinary experience at Oriental Spoon.

Blue Hill or Lure?

They are both fine choices, but...a word of warning about Blue Hill. We just went last night and both my partner and I felt that everything was over-salted. The soft-shell crabs were barely edible. I'd just ask for things not too salty and add salt yourself as needed. I know - not ideal, but it's a lot of money and fresh food and it's better when you can actually eat it! (Also the cod was too rich and the gazpacho too sweet.) And we aren't picky eaters so this must have been an off night - for us and/or Blue Hill!

On the other hand - I've never had a bad experience at Lure. And the room is much more interesting and lively.

Chinatown/Tribeca for 10 people

thanks so much for your reply! $20/head + drinks seems about right. it's a work function so atmosphere is a factor.

We have a 24-hour helpdesk at work and would like to surprise the boys with dinner when their shift starts. Does any one know of any restaurants in midtown (37th & 7th area) which deliver after 11pm?
