egg rolls with celery not cabage

I grew up in the Kingston area where the Chinese restaurants used celery in their egg rolls not cabbage. Anyone know a place that does that. Preferably near tribeca or park slope, but will travel... since I still go up to Kingston for them

Dining out - Seeking specialty steaks

I lived in LA for years before coming to NY. I always had a Great meal at LALa's on melrose. I still crave their entrana and chimichurri

Pinot Grigio

Don't worry you won't be crucified by me. I appreciate your advice,... but I do want to have it around for this girl I'm seeing and a box might not impress her...
When I get to know her better maybe I'll find a box.

Pinot Grigio

I know nothing about wine. I'd like to get a couple inexpensive bottles of Pinot Grigio to have around. Any suggestions? lets say $7-12 range

Peter Luger wannabees

What I'd like to know is why do they have to be carbon copies... Can't the "alumni" come up with their own concepts, own menus? Just because your a steakhouse doesn't mean you can't mix it up a bit. These menus always feel so limited.
I'd really like to see some one from Luger (even the night porter or bar back) leave and open up a seafood place, a French bistro or... and succeed on their own merits without using someone else's name to launch.
