Lyon - for late Friday dinner

Hi
I'm looking for a place that will accept dinner reservation for a Friday 11PM. I prefer a brasserie with varied menu and not any Michelin starred spots.
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

Any NY dim sum close to HK DTF ?

Forgive my ignorance but XLB is not the type of dim sum that come from the Shanghai area ?
Any way - find me that kind of XLB in NYC and I'm a happy dude...

Yes I mean Din Tai Fung and I'm looking for both - they do excellent XLB and dim sum altogether.

Any NY dim sum close to HK DTF ?

Hi
After years of eating dim sum while traveling to NY in various places , I've been to Hong Kong and had dinner at DTF.
This place is, in my opinion, in a totally different league.
Can someone refer me to a NYc place with food that is close in its level to DTF ?
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

Thinking again - BJ like costso is a membership only store correct ?
If that's the case - it's not good for me...

I will look for either a BJ nearby or I will order some at Amazon as someone suggested.

Lunch Prix Fixe

Still, the 2 best rewarding deals in town for my 2 cents are Bouley and Del Posto ( yes the price went up but you get a lot for what you pay...)

Thanks for all replies so far.
No kosher isn't the thing here but rather my friend who used to live a few years ago in the US is in love for some reason with mccormick grill mates series...

Where to get large McCormick containers

Hi all
I'm after the 29oz. McCormick containers while visiting to Manhattan (need to schlep these for a friend in Israel ).
I don't have a Costco card so where else I can find these around town ?
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

Breakfast marylebone area

Thanks for the reply.
I wasn't too precise - since the Montcalm hotel is near marble arch and I'm looking be within walking distance - so I'm looking for either south Marylebone or north Mayfair - all within walking distance from marble arch. thanks

Breakfast marylebone area

Hi
We will be staying at the Montcalm later this September and looking for places for light breakfast with a good coffee around that area.
I don't like hotels breakfast for their steep cost and the "too much food" factor.
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

15 east - suffering any downturn ?

I have a reservation for Saturday to 15 east but I'm getting negative vibe from some recent reviews I've read. Do I have to look elsewhere for a sushi omaksase for Saturday 7PM ?

Looking for dining spots in Munich

Hi
Traveling in May to Munich for a few days. I'm looking for non-traditional places mainly within walking distance drom altstadt/stachus areas but can travel a few tram stops as well.
I'm trying to keep budget for starter+main at no more than 50 euro a head for dinner.
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

Love Strip House, looking for something new. Suggestions?

From all those names I prefer BLT prime. American cut received some good words lately but I haven't been there yet.

L'Artusi vs. Dell'Anima vs. I sodi

Hi
Looking for a lively Italian place around village area and i came up with those 3 candidates out of which i've been only to L'artusi and liked it. One of us doesn't eat pork and shellfish and prefer red meat over fish so we prefer a place that has some meat on its menu or on its usual specials.
what would you choose with budget fits those kind of places or any other good place recommended ? Thanks in advance.

Late January itinerary

Thanks a lot Gordon
I'll probably try LV for Italian and go for Minetta as I've been to Craft before (and loved it).
As for hiend Asian - I'll look into your recs
And as for breakfast we are in town only for 3 weekdays and we need just a coffee and bagel place - no fancy breakfast guys we are.

Late January itinerary

I looked at Costata's menu and I don't see much of a difference between a regular steakhouse menu (Oysters,Caviar,meat etc.) beside some pasta dishes. I mentioned Minetta tavern for an option as I wanted a non-steakhouse place (food,decor and people ...)

Late January itinerary

Hi
For Italian - I've actually been to L'artusi 2 months ago and liked it very much so I think of going again (liked Perla as well beside the very crowded seating there).So if you know of any Italian with the same profile as these 2 places, preferably not too far from Trump Soho hotel.
I will look at Crostata and RBBT,
thanks so far

Late January itinerary

Hi
I would love your take on my 3 day late January trip with my 2 colleagues:
1) L'artusi or locanda verde for Italian.
2) Hakkasan for hiend Asian (any other rec for hiend Asian ?)
3) Minetta tavern for non-steakhouse meat (or Craft?)

Also - any recs on breakfast/coffee place near the Trump Soho (west soho) ?
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

Asian food near Lincoln center tomorrow night

Hi
I will appreciate your recs for an Asian food place within walking distance from Lincoln center which welcome diners around 10:30pm.
I thought about Nobu57 and Blue ribbon on 58th st. (They don't take reservations btw?). It doesn't have to be sushi those are just examples.
Thanks to all repliers.

Help pick 2 Italian places

I think I'm gonna go with Perla again and try maialino over LV.
I've been to Babbo 3 times in the past few years and I'm not saying it is not a good place but each time wasn't as good as the previous one. Bar pitti looks nice but I'm looking for something a bit more festive.
Thanks to all helpful comments.

Help pick 2 Italian places

Hi
I'm looking for 2 Italian places for my week visit next month. I'm into good food with a non formal ambience.
My candidates so far are :
Perla
Locanda Verde
Maialino

I've been to perla last year and liked it very much so I know what to expect there. Will the food check be materially similar in maialino and LV or one of them is pricier than the other ?
Looking for your takes on those 3 or maybe another rec.
Thanks in advance to all repliers.

That's who we are but I'd love to see what are your local places

Your take on my dining itinerary

Thanks so far.
Mission chinese food - well I prefer an extra mile on the decor side...
Japanese - we prefer mostly sushi
I have been to Babbo 3 times before and each time was less enjoyable that the former. I'm trying something new.
Momo ssam bar - I'm dying to try but it will be too exotic to some of us..
I didn't consider Indochine but i'll research a little bit on the place.

Your take on my dining itinerary

Hi

I'm travelling with some clients of mine next month to NYC and I need places for dinner for 4 nights. We love good food but need relaxed casual places. All places mentioned below fit our budget so you will get the idea.

1) Japanese - Neta this time. I have been to most of the good places but never been to Neta.
2) Meat (but no steakhouse please) - Collichio & sons or Minetta Tavern (I had a great meal last time at Craft so maybe collichio ?)
3) Italian - Maialino or Locanda Verde (last time had a great meal at Perla although the place seating is on the less comfortable side...)
4) Asian fusion - this is a tough one. Two of us adore asian fusion (myself less...) so either Cherry, spice Market or Zengo but feel free to bring some other ideas to the table.

Thanks in advance to all opinions and recs.
