Flushing dim sum - New year's Day?

Is my assumption that it will be business as usual at restaurants in Flushing on New year's day correct or way off-base? Obviously I can call on the morning but we're trying to plan with a group coming from diverse locations. Thanks in advance.

Kansas City - enroute from downtown to the airport

Thank you - either of these are perfect. Appreciate the response!

Kansas City - enroute from downtown to the airport

First, thanks to everyone for all the great KC information on this board.

Here's the one thing I can't quite figure out: we have an early evening flight on a Sunday out of MCI. I'd love to be able to stop and pick up some sandwiches or some food that will travel well to take on the plane since we will get home very late. I know there is little or nothing at the airport, but is there anywhere inbetween downtown and the airport - or even a slight detour - where we could get some grub for the flight?

Thanks again.

do you regularly read and use the advisement of midtown lunch?

Do you work in Midtown? If you did, you'd go insane after two weeks of crappy deli sandwiches. There are very few options for us wage slaves. Midtown Lunch can help me find the one good thing to eat at a deli, it can tell me what is near my brand new office and help me get oriented, and tell me when something new opens. I'd like to be that person who had the time to walk around and wander into every new food place but some days it's all I can do to get from the subway to the office and I'm glad they care enough to do it. I actually feel like there's more useful content to me on the site once zach left because there are now more local people covering - when he was here, he took pride in writing as much of the content as he can.

It's not Zagat. It's a food blog about how to eat interestingly in one part of NYC. Not everyone can eat at WD-50 every single day of their life. How do YOU find your lunch in NYC?

(I have nothing to do with the site, I just dislike the snobby attitude towards a site that makes it very clear what they're about.)

Mamoun's - MacDougal vs St Marks

I agree with the Macdougal recommendations, for everything said below, and also because Macdougal to me still seems like I can feel vestiges of the old Village there.

...but did I hear a rumor that they got DOH'd? I would check before setting off.

Saturday brunch near St. Vincent's hospital

Oh, I know Prune isn't anywhere near St. Vincents, but neither is Balthazar. :) I'm game to go anywhere that would be considered the Village.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Saturday brunch near St. Vincent's hospital

I admit I know nothing about the West Village. At all.

My SO is having a MRI very, very early Saturday morning. I want to take them somewhere nice for brunch afterwards. Foolishly I thought we could go to Balthazar, but nooooo.

Where can we safely go in the 9:30-10am range, anywhere in the Village, where the food is yummy and they will feel pampered? Do I want to try Prune? I don't want anywhere too overwhelming.

We have to go uptown later, so if there was somewhere in the 40s or 50s, that would also work. Price range is irrelevant.

union square dinner recs for friends who don't like anything "weird"

We're getting together on a Wednesday evening with friends who do not like anything "weird." By "weird" I mean that even SUSHI would be out of the question. Nothing ethnic or close to ethnic. Mexican is acceptable. Zen Palate, on the other hand, would be "weird".

It also needs to be adjacent to Union Square due to travel and logistics considerations. $20-25pp (w/o alcohol - they don't drink).

i'm kind of lost here.

Quince tea?

I lived in Seattle for a long time and one winter staple we would buy at the big Asian grocery (Uwajimaya) is Quince tea. It came in a bottle looking almost exactly like this:

I have printed this out and taken it to two Asian grocery stores in Queens and no one I could find to help me* knew what I was talking about. Is this just a west coast thing? I will order it by mail if I have to but I've got to think there has to be SOMEWHERE I can get this here.

*I went on a weekend when they were mobbed and finding an English speaker was impossible so going another time and finding someone who can say, "We don't have it but you can get it HERE" might happen, but I thought I'd try here first. I can look in Manhattan or Outer Boroughs and I'll drive to Jersey if I have to.

The service at Queen's Hideaway defines the worst of this area. It should be in 11211, not up here.

not expensive midtown dinner that says "i'm sorry we had a huge fight this morning"

Well, it's a school night so we wouldn't be drinking. I wish we could afford $75pp right now!

I like the fondue idea, a lot. But La Petite Auberge sounds wonderful as well. Thanks!!
