Delmonico Steakhouse Las Vegas - any good?

Will be in Vegas next April renewing wedding vows (yes a big softie I know!) and inbetween renewal time and the show at the Venetian we have booked to see we have been looking for somewhere near to the theatre to eat a good meal

We have read some good reviews of Delmonico's but would really appreciate the 'hounds feedback on this place

Thanks in advance

Can any fellow Chowhound recommend any good eateries in Bruges, Belgium

Will be there with my wife overnight in a couple of weeks time and would appreciate any good places to eat whilst there

Smith & Wollenskys

I've just enjoyed a good 5 day vacation in Manhattan and had the pleasure of a really good steak here, the service was really good and the waiter (Carl) really knew his stuff, we took the kids along and he made a great fuss of them and treated them well, the only down side I thought was that the tables were really crammed in and close together, other than that it was very good

Just wondering what you other Chow Hounds thought of the place?

We also had a very enjoyable evening in Virgils bar and grill just off of Times Square (I know but I was a tourist!) the food was great and my wife and my kids had a really enjoyable time there, anyone else out there had a meal or two in Virgils and if yes what did you think?

Eggs Benedict

Will be in Manhattan early next year and my wife (for whatever reason she may have!) has her heart set on getting some good Eggs Benedict whilst we are there

We'll be staying on Lexington at East 38th, so any recommendations on somewhere in that area where we can go one morning to allow my wife to enjoy some good eggs Benedict?

Thanks to you all!!

Chinese new year

I will be in New York with my family in mid Feb next year, as far as I know the Chinese New Year starts on Sunday 18th Feb and we would like to know the best places to go in New York to see any good parades etc and to eat good chinese food whilst we are there

Any good suggestions?

I've seen this place come up a couple of times online and I was wondering if any of you fellow Chowhounds had been there recently and what you thought of the place

Worth a visit for a tourist like me with wife and 2 teenagers in tow when we visit New York in February?

Rosie O'Grady's Bar and Steakhouse

Bill,
Thanks for this, I have taken a look at both of the websites and we may go for Angelo-Maxies as I really dont think the kids will appreciate Jazz yet!

Keep up the good work!

Regards

Terry

Those of you Chowhounds who have been reading the Manhattan Boards over the last couple of days will have seen a couple of postings from me looking for somewhere in the Manhattan area that serves reasonable food, I have been looking for mainly Indian, Italian, Steak & Seafood

I have now narrowed the search down to 3 restaurants, 2 on your recommendations (thank you all) and this one that I have seen on one of the many New York Tourist websites, as we will be staying on Lexington Avenue and 48th Street this place has come up as not being too far away (you have to bear in mind that I will have my wife and 2 teenage kids in tow so we don't want to travel too far from the hotel after a long days sightseeing)

I've taken a look at their website and some of the other reviews have all said it's ok

Just wondering if any of you Chowhounds have been there and what your impressions of the place are

Is this a good place to be able to take the kids for a meal (they are Girl 18 and boy 15) and will they enjoy the place?

I look forward to reading your postings!

There is absolutely no chance of me trying to eat a Phaal, I have seen first hand just how hot thst baby is! and lets not even mention the aftermath in the morning!!

I can handle about a Madras or Jalfreizi when it comes to the heat scale, I cannot see the point of eating a Phaal, Vindaloo or Tindaloo style curry unless your mouth and digestive system is lined with asbestos! From reading the messages on here it does sound as though Brick Lane may well get my business when me and the family come over next February

Ike,

Yes I am English and will be visiting New York for the first time, am looking forward to it a lot,

As for the curry, well both myself, my wife and the kids all love a curry now and then (I prefer Indian to Chinese) and we thought it would be good to try a curry when in New York, I do understand that it will be different to the curries we get here in England but I'm ready to give it a go! When I went to Australia a couple of years back the curries there were completely different to anything I had ever had in England, I'm not saying they were worse just different!

Apart from restaurants any recommendations as to where I should take my wife and kids (My daughter is 18 the my son is 15)in New York in February apart from the obvious tourist spots?

Emma,
Thanks for your comments, can you recommend a reasonable Indian restaurant in the Manhattan area?

Sirtaj Indian/Pakistani Restaurant

Am coming over to NYC early next year and quite fancy the idea of going for a curry (a good English tradition!!)

I've read a couple of quite good online reviews about this restaurant but was wondering if any of your fellow Chowhounds had eaten there and what you thought of the place

First visit to the Big Apple

We are going to be staying at the Lexington Radisson, I've heard its not too bad a hotel and the location seems ok, thanks for your recommendations I'm making a list of the good ones and I've already warned my wife that she will need to wear expandable thermal clothing as there seem to be so many good places to eat in New York and its going to be cold in February!

Sorry,

Having never been to NY I didn't realise that Lexington Avenue was so long (I will learn the hard way I think!!!)

The place we are staying is Lexington Avenue at 48th Street

First visit to the Big Apple

Finally I have booked a vacation to come see New York in all its glory and need your help

I will be arriving from England in Mid Feb 2007 (arriving on the 17th) along with my wife and 2 kids (Daughter is 18 and Son is 15)we are staying in Manhattan on Lexington Ave and what we would like to know from you folks (apart from how cold it is going to be!)are the places you would recommend in the area to go eat some good food (not fine cuisine just good New York Chow!)

Good Pizza restaurants, Good Steak restaurants, good Chinese restaurants etc (I think you get my drift!)

Also, ever since I watched Gene Hackman in The French Connection (showing my age now!) I have always wanted to try an authentic Chilli Dig (sad I know but what the heck!) any recommendations on this one? (apart from DON'T DO IT!!)

Have a nice day
