Enoteca Restaurant, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

What is the food and atmosphere like at Enoteca in Carroll Gardens? I am interested in having dinner there and perhaps having a rehearsal dinner for 25 to 30 people. Also, any other similar restaurants in the area to compare.

Brunch Saturday West 50's

Any suggestions for a restaurant in the West 50's for brunch or late breakfast. Will be going to The Modern Restaurant for pre theater dinner at 6:00 pm, so nothing too heavy. Thanks.

Brooklyn Bridal Shower/ Frankie's or Sweet Melissa

There is a Sweet Melissa in Park Slope, as far as I know. Also, does anyone know about the food for a shower at Scottadito?

Tuscan Station at Wedding

You are so right. With all the weddings I have attended, I basically remember eating a delicious baby lamb chop prior to the sit down dinner at one wedding. Otherwise, it is all about celebrating with the bride and groom and family and friends.

Tuscan Station at Wedding

What is your opinion of having a Tuscan station (pasta, pizza, olives, cheeses, etc.) at an upscale wedding in New York City? Does the food appeal to most people and is it elegant enough for a wedding? Also, would it fit in with a sushi station (or if not, could you suggest an appropriate station). Also, I feel this type of food is a little old fashioned for today.

Best bridal brunch - Jane, Brasserie 81/2 or Other for 30-40 people

I want a reasonably priced bridal shower location for brunch. Jane and Brasserie 81/2 have private rooms for about 40. Which has a better menu and atmosphere? Other suggestions taken too. I also looked into American Bistro in Tuckahoe.

Manhattan or Brooklyn Hotel for 200 people wedding

Looking for a hotel for a wedding with a vintage/industrial/brick feel in Brooklyn or Manhattan for 200 people that has good food for a sit down dinner with dancing. In alternative, a restaurant which allowed dancing would also work.

Going Away Party

Really do not know going rates. Maybe, around 50/60 (could be Sunday lunch or brunch). Anywhere in Manhattan. I would also consider Westchester.

Son's 30th Birthday Party

$30-35 just for the food, but, of course, if such a place does not exist I would go higher. Thinking about 20-30 people. Can't be more specific at this point. When I first made my post, I was just trying to get some names to explore before making any definitive plans.

Son's 30th Birthday Party

I think I would rather tell you a place that I know my son has liked - The Modern at Moma. They have a private room. But, I do think the price range is a little high for a group of 30 somethings. I am thinking of about $30-35 a person. I think I would like a rather a more casual atmosphere rather than a very formal atmosphere. "Off beat" I know could mean a lot of things, but I guess I meant to say an atmosphere that attracts a group interested in the arts (if that Is helpful in any way).

Son's 30th Birthday Party

I forgot to say that my son does not like ice cream or cake. But, I know I like those desserts, as most guests would too. Dylan's would not work.

Son's 30th Birthday Party

Looking for a restaurant in April to celebrate son's 30th birthday. The party might be for friends, relatives or both. He is not into big spectacles, but rather looking for an off beat type atmosphere Food should be good and price should be in the moderate to high range. Manhattan would be great, but would also consider Brooklyn. Not sure yet of the number of people.

West Side Restaurant Starting with M

I was told about a restaurant on the West Side (probably West 50's to 70's) that I believe is new. I do not remember the name, but it starts with a M. I was told that is was especially known for its delicious fish dishes and I think it may also serve Italian food. Does anyone know this restaurant?
