Mini Hamburger buns

Does anyone know where i can buy buns for sliders? I have not seen them at Food Emporium and wonder if Whole Foods might have them or if I have to go to a bakery.

Weekend in Chicago...need restaurant recs

My husband and I are going to be in Chicago for a long weekend this weekend. We are staying at the Westin on Michicgan Avenue, Near North area but will be spending a good amount of time in Lincoln Park,Lakeview and River North. I would love to try Alinea and Blackbird but my husband likes less foodie options. He loves pizza so we definitely need to try that one day but we will also need breakfast/brunch recommendations as well as lunch and dinner. We will be there for 3 nights and four days so any suggestions any of you can make that will give us a great taste of Chicago will be greatly appreciated.

In search of great steak or Mex Mex

Visting for the weekend from NYC and are looking for a great steakhouse or high end Mexican restaurant. The choices right now are Bob's Chophouse, Al Biernat's, Perry's or Javier's.

Any thoughts or other suggestions?

Good, authentic Mexican in Manhattan?

I really like Barrio Chino in the LES. In terms of dishes on the menu and flavor it is very authentic. The prices are also reasonable by Manhattan standards.

Essential NY bites

Good to know, I had no idea. Then I guess it will have to be McSorleys.

Essential NY bites

Am looking to do an independent walking tour of Manhattan with the plan being to go from the lowest point and ending the walk in Harlem. Along the way, we plan to stop at places that serve quintessentially NY food and/or atmosphere. We know we want to stop for capuccino and pastry in Little Italy and probably visit bars like Chumleys and McSorleys along the way. We also will probably not be looking to include high end restaurants as we expect the walk to take all day and with the exception of dinner, won't want to allocate 2-3 hours to eat. We also know that we eventually want to end the walk in Harlem with dinner at Sylvia's. Since we will be covering a lot of territory, can you offer any suggestions?
