Soursop ice cream?

I tasted this transcendent flavor during a vacation in Belize (every single day I was there, actually)... does anyone know of a place in NY that has this flavor? Thanks!!!

Vegas Bachelor/Bachelorette Weekend

Hi,

My friends are having a combined bachelor/bachelorette weekend in Vegas in 3 weeks and are trying to figure out where to eat for Saturday lunch/dinner and Sunday brunch/dinner. They're from NYC and don't care too much about the scene as long as the food is good and the atmosphere is fun and "not stuffy." We'd prefer somewhere on the Strip, especially for Saturday dinner, because the plan is to go clubbing at Tao afterwards (we're staying at the Venetian). Saturday will be just the girls (9 of us) and Sunday will be the wedding party (15-18). We're thinking $25-50pp, not including drinks, for each meal. Someone suggested Kahunaville for Sat night, but we're just wondering if there are any other options. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!

Lunch at Jean-Georges

Hi,

I'm going to lunch tomorrow at Jean-Georges and was just wondering if people had recommendations for particular dishes. They all look delicious, so I'd definitely have a hard time deciding what to order! Thanks!

Graduation dinner

We'll be in Cambridge and will probably do a little sightseeing in the city, so anywhere accessible by public transportation is fine.

Graduation dinner

My family and I (6 people) will be celebrating my sister's graduation next week, and we wanted to go somewhere a little upscale the night before commencement. I've read mixed reviews of Capital Grille, which was my sister's suggestion, and was wondering if anyone could suggest something comparable--doesn't have to be a steakhouse--just good food and a nice atmosphere. Thanks!

Tea around Midtown/UES/UWS

I'd like to take an out-of-town friend to tea this afternoon, and I'm planning to try Alice's Tea Cup. However, I've heard that the wait can be excessively long--are there any other places to go (preferably with good scones too)? We're planning to go around 3pm. Thanks!

Burger Joint

I'm planning to try out the Burger Joint tomorrow afternoon--can someone tell me when the best time to go is (to avoid a long wait)? Thanks!

Saturday dinner in Lower Manhattan

My teenage brother and sister are visiting me for the day, and I want to take them to a tasty, but fairly inexpensive place for dinner (I'm a poor med student). They don't like Indian, and I'd like to try s/thing other than Asian (we have it all the time). I was thinking of Shake Shack, but the wait might be a tad too long. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Bakery Specials

Hi,

Does anyone know of any bakeries that have late night specials, like what Fairway had going a while ago?

Thanks!
