Where can I find Valrhona cocoa powder?

Why schlepp all over NYC when Amazon has it and you can have it next day.

Fairway Cheese Dep't

I love the cheese dept. at Westside Market - Bdway and 76th St. Great, friendly counter service provides plenty of knowledge w/ samples. Store is well stocked and clean. I am tired of the tumult at the Bdway Fairway.

outdoor seating for large group in Manhattan?

why outdoor? Is that your decision or the entire group?
weather can be hot, humid, very sunny.

If there is no courtyard area, I hate eating outdoors, find it too distracting...main reason: traffic + fumes, street noise.

Bye Bye CRUMBS

NEW YORK — Crumbs says it is shuttering all its stores, a week after the struggling cupcake shop operator was delisted from the Nasdaq.

The New York City-based company said all employees were notified of the closures Monday. A representative for Crumbs could not immediately say how many workers were affected or how many stores it had remaining on its last day.

"Regrettably Crumbs has been forced to cease operations and is immediately attending to the dislocation of its employees while it evaluates its limited remaining options," the company said in an emailed statement. That will include filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation.

A press release from its website in March listed 65 locations in 12 states and Washington, D.C. The website had not been updated with notification of the closures late Monday.

Crumbs was founded in 2003 and went public in 2011, selling giant cupcakes in flavors including Cookie Dough and Girl Scouts Thin Mints. More recently, however, it had been suffering from a steep decline in sales. For the three months ending March 31, Crumbs Bake Shop Inc. reported a loss of $3.8 million, steeper than the loss of $2 million from the same period a year ago.

The company had warned in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission this past May that it "may be forced to curtail or cease its activities" if its operations didn't generate enough cash flow.

As of the end of last year, Crumbs listed about 165 full-time employees and about 655 part-time hourly employees working in its stores.

Midtown Friday night with my 14 yo niece and her friend

If your niece enjoys walking/shopping around Soho (has she been to Top Shop?) and likes Chipolte, what about Papatzul on Grand Street/W. Broadway. Great Mexican food + plenty of tequila for you. Very casual dress, so it will not be a problem if she is wearing her Daisy Dukes.

$2.50 for each person on the bus...need to have exact coins OR a MetroCard.

Rockefeller Center is 50th St. between 5th & 6th Ave.
I worked in that neighborhood for close to 30 years.
Great place to go. A lot depends on the weather that day.

Large group seeking lunch

Detouring to 86th and Third Ave. might be a bit much. After spending time in the Met and then having to walk 30+ blocks down to 53rd St/5th Ave, the kids (how old are they?) will probably be exhausted...Detouring to 86th and Third Ave. might be a bit much.

There are a few places on Madison Ave. in the 70s – Viand has 2 places: Madison & 78th and Madison & 61st. 3 Guys:Madison & 75th.

There are a few places off Fifth Ave. in the 50s – checkout PizzArte at W. 55th St. between 5th & 6th Ave.

Also the Rockefeller Center arcade...many choices http://www.rockefellercenter.com/shop...
