Champagne-filled Strawberries

Hey guys-

I was wondering if anyone knew of any chocolate shops in Manhattan that sells champagne-filled chocolate covered strawberries. I remember getting them a few years back in Philadelphia, and they were delicious, but I can't seem to find them in NYC.

Thanks for the help!

Where can I purchase Mariage Freres Tea, specifically Thé á L´Opéra?

Bergdorf Goodman has a great selection of Mariage Freres teas

Best italian lunch (quick, for takeout) in financial district?

Ever since Rosario's closed, have been looking for a replacement. Any suggestions? (Close to Broadway would be preferred).

Best burger in Northern NJ?

How can you guys overlook Fuddruckers?. Having lived in Manhattan, I've tried all of the usual haunts (Melon's, Burger Joint, etc), and Fuddrucker's always keeps me coming back to Northern NJ

Best bagel in East Village?

Anything comparable to H&H?

Best Coffee Beans (for purchase)?

I want to get some coffee beans for a coffee-lover this year. Does anyone know of a great spot to get a strong, dark bean?

Thanks in advance.

Pre-Concert Meal near Lincoln Center

Hi, I plan to attend a concert tonight at Alice Tully Hall near Lincoln Center (65th and Broadway). I don't know the area too well, so was wondering what dining options were available nearby. I'd prefer a place that has fast service and is a good value.

Thanks in advance.

Top 5 Burgers

While I won't contest my top 3- 1) Shake Shack, 2) JG Melon and 3) Burger Joint, Uptown Bar & Grill on the UES also has a surprisingly good burger. Then again, if you've ever been to a Fuddrucker's, you might concede that one of the best burgers in the area is worth crossing a bridge or tunnel for.

Best homemade pasta sauce for sale in New York?

I live in the East Village, and have bought sauce from Russo's (on 11th st b/w 1st and 2nd, next to Veniero's), several times, and it is very good, but at times is inconsistent. Was wondering if anyone knew of a better place to get sauce (marinara, meat, pesto), as well where to find fresh pastas and ravioli.
