Please! More suggestions for large party?

Landmarc in the TWC has an area that looks like they may do private events - worth a call?

Landmarc in the TWC: do they take reservations? How long the wait if not?

I went at 715 on Saturday night and they said the wait was about 20 minutes and they would come get us at the bar. At 750 I went back to check and they has already passed by my name... so they sat us right away. So make sure to check back and not trust that they will just come get you.

Dinner around the E. 50's (with a downtown feel)

There is a dos caminos that just opened up in the 50's on 3rd. They have good food, cocktails and has a cool vibe!

Is Osteria Mozza Open Yet?

I have seen postings for Mozza, the pizza place, but the webste lists another restaurant Ostera Mozza, but says coming soon. Does anyone know if it is open yet or when it is opening?

Casual dinner in Tribeca area

Landmarc is a great suggestion. If you want strictly Italian, I love Pepolino.

Anyone been to Five Feet in Laguna lately?

I was in Laguna Beach about 5 years ago and enjoyed a great meal at five feet. I haven't heard much about it lately. Anyone been recently?

Reasonable priced dinner in Tribeca

I love landmarc but it is more bistro type fare... steak frites, burgers, mussels, pastas etc. They have the most reasonably priced wine list in nyc. Peopolino is great for Italian food. Nam for Vietnamese food.

30th Bday Dinner - Veritas, EMP, Cru or ?

Another thought would be Mas. Definitely one of the hidden gems in NYC. Outstanding food and wine with great farmhouse ambiance.

Affordable Brunch for 20+ for Baby Shower in NYC

I agree, Jane would be perfect. Also, in the W Hotel in the 30's is a restaurant Icon which has a private space and small garden.

Hip "downtown" dinner-date place on Upper East Side?

Sfoglia is amazing, tough to get a reservation if you dont call in advance. Turqoise is great seafood. Amber is sushi/japanese and very hip. I have heard Ian is a fun place.
