What are the Most Happening Places to Hang Out in NYC

What is the dress code like at Bodega? Is it Beauty & Essex-esque, or a bit more toned down? Thanks!

May West, Swiss Rolls, and Jos Louis?

Does anyone know if the Christie outlet is still open to the public? Thanks!

*EDITED to say never mind! Found a phone # :) They are still open!

Chinatown Fruit Report-2012

Have anyone seen pomelos in Chinatown? I stocked up the last time I was there (in early March), but my stash is low and I think pomelos may be out of season now

What's the best place for breakfast in Montreal

Ahh yes - I was actually brunching at Cafe Souvenir (forgot to add that to my list) this weekend and was intrigued by its neighbor, Les Enfants Terribles :) Will try that one as well - thank you for the reminder!

What's the best place for breakfast in Montreal

I'm looking for a good North American breakfast, and by 'good' I am guaging it against L'Avenue (I know a lot of Chowhounders may disagree...). The only reason why I don't go to L'Avenue as much as I'd like to is because of the line-ups.

As for the other restos, the food itself just wasn't that tasty IMO.

Reviving this thread, just to see if there have been any notable eats as of late. I've been to Bagels Etc., Byblos, and Griffintown Cafe so far - and nothing quite satisfies my brunch cravings the way that L'Avenue does in terms of the 'traditional' North American breakfast (eggs, sausage, french toast/crepes, home fries).

City Bakery style chocolate chip cookies

If I were to follow the JT recipe, do you know how long I would have to bake for if I wanted to make smaller cookies? Thanks in advance :)

Chez Ping dim sum in LaSalle

My mom told me that the prices were more expensive than Chinatown, but the quality is comparable. I guess it's the price we pay for convenience and free parking

Has anyone spotted any good honeycrisp apples in downtown Montreal, or are they not in season yet? My weekly perusal of PA's grocery aisles today was not fruitful. Thank you!

Which Loblaws in MTL carries cakes from Les Delices Lafrenaie??

I am unable to make it to the actual Lafrenaie storefront, and thus must settle for Loblaws. I am looking for the Oreo and Coffee Crisp cake in particular. Thank you!

Has anyone tried Crazy For Cupcakes (www.montrealcupcakes.com)?

I need 2 dozen cupcakes this week and was going to take the Cocoa Locale route, until I realized that it's closed for the construction holiday. Plan B was Clever Cupcakes - but they are fully booked and cannot fill my order. I was referred to Crazy About Cupcakes (www.montrealcupcakes.com), but cannot seem to find any reviews. Does anyone care to chip in with their 2 cents? As long as it's comparable to either CL or Clever Cupcakes, I'll be a happy camper. Also, what is the best way to store cupcakes to maintain freshness? Airtight container in a fridge? Thank you in advance
