Looking for a romantic restaurant in the Lower East Side

Thank you for this wonderful suggestion. I came here for brunch the morning after my date. It was funky, cool, and vibrant, and the coconut pancakes were out of this world... I almost put in for a second order.
Thanks again!

Thank you so much for this suggestion!!! The food and service were fabulous. I had the paella de coco and it was better than I've had in Spain. His dessert was heavanly... The gratinado de almendra. I ate more of his than mine!
Again, great suggestion!

Great food wedding venues in the Hudson Valley?

Hello,

I am recently engaged and am originally from Kingston, NY. New York City is out of our budget for a wedding and I have always loved the beauty of the Hudson Valley.

Our priority is to have great food and great music at our wedding (and, of course, a lively ambiance), and we would like to know if you have any suggestions for places located anywhere between NYC and Albany. We are looking to keep the price of this wedding within a modest budget.

And, if there are bed and breakfasts nearby, as well as fun local things to do, like tubing down the Esopus, all the better!

Thank you!!!

Breakfast place in Midtown?

Hello Food enthusiasts!

I have an appointment tomorrow at 11:30 am at 52nd street and 5th Ave. Before I go to it, I want to meet up with a friend for breakfast... Around 10 am-ish.

Do you know of any good breakfast places (not too pricey) around this area that are open at this time (and won't have a block long line out the door)?

Thank you!!!

Looking for a romantic restaurant in the Lower East Side

Hello All,

I'm looking for a great, romantic restaurant to go to with my boyfriend this Friday night. It must be in the lower east side because we will be going to the Nuyorican Poetry cafe (near Ave. B and 3rd Street) after dinner around 9:30 pm (where I plan on proposing to him).

I don't really care about expense (although, if it happens to be great AND affordable, I certainly won't complain) :-)

I am particularly interested in great French restaurants (the one cuisine he has not experienced) but I am open to other styles of food. I am less interested in taking him to an Italian, Indian, or Mexican restaurant (but good Cuban, Thai, Vietnamese, Carribbean, etc are fare game)

Thank you!
