Dinner with a Baby

i've seen young children les halles on park ave and blue ribbon bakery. when we were at les halles, the child at the table next to us was provided with a coloring book and crayons.

chelsea brunch

thanks rgr. just looked at the menu and it sounds nice. my only concern is their lack of sweeter brunch fare (my partner has a sweet tooth)

chelsea brunch

Moderately priced, romantic restaurant for anniversary dinner?

apizz, wallse, downstairs at blue ribbon bakery (in one of the cave-like seating areas)

LA to NYC with kids, but don't dumb it down

katz deli, economy candy, chelsea market

quiet, cosy, L.E.S. or E. Vill

apizz would be an ideal birthday spot. cozy and warm with great food

Preg lady seeks seafood restaurant recs

for fish, i'm partial to mediterranean restaurants. pylos may be a good bet. ethos has attractive fresh fish, but the space in murray hill is quite cramped-i know there's a sister location now in midtown east, but i've not yet been.

Good Pre-Theater Restaurant within a few blocks of the Winter Garden?

toloache's brunch menu looks good, though i've only been for dinner. i've had the tacos and was quite impressed

Restaurant Week for a big group

chinatown brasserie-it's not japanese but it could handle a group of your size and the food is good

Visit to NY - One dinner booked. Other suggestions wanted.

fourth the katz recommendation. i find hill country to be subpar.

Mid afternoon treats?

i found the meat pies to be enjoyable. scratch cupcake cafe off of your list-it sucks, imho. beard papa makes a great cream puff.

Dining Blogs?

sounds like you and "the lunch belle" had a bad break up. all jokes aside, you sure have quite a lot of negative things to say about a blog that you clearly keep up with (referencing quotes and minute details). after checking out the site for myself, it appears that "the lunch belle" has been published more than a handful of times. if it's good enough for the new york post, it's good enough for me. what i've read has been really entertaining and spot-on.

3 Guys - one from NYC, one from Dallas, one from Ohio - need dinner. Where?

"fun, loud, good bar and seafood" makes me think of lure fishbar in soho

Restaurant close to Rolf's in Gramercy

used to live in the area, but had never known about paul and jimmy's. i see on the menu that they have a homemade fettucine with bolognese sauce. sounds good, thanks.

Mexican Cuisine

very true re: "you're pretty close to a lot of other places of the same caliber on the uws and les." mexican food in nyc has come a long way in the past couple of years. what are some of your go-to spots?

holiday lunch

Mexican Cuisine

cheese chilaquiles with salsa rojo or verde - though not sure how great they'll taste, considering the tortillas are fried in oil. what is it you normally order?
