Mother's Day dinner

What do you consider "overly expensive?"
The "east side" runs from below Houston all the way up to Harlem...please be more specific with the location.

Any food preferences/non-preferences?

You need to be a bit more specific.

How many guests will be attending? Are you looking for a restaurant private room? Type of food? Time of day...brunch, lunch, tea? Cost? What part of Manhattan?

Run, Don't Walk -- Orwasher's Corn Rye, Only Available in March

Many thanks for posting this corn rye info. I grew up on Long Island loving the dense corn rye from the local Jewish-style bakeries. No one makes it anymore. I live 2 blocks from Orwashers, will definitely visit there this week.

I am a big fan of Vermicelli - a Vietnamese restaurant at 78th and Second Ave. - great service, very tasty food

The weather here is NYC has been terrible. Bring an umbrella and rubber boots.

You might give some thought to heading downtown to the wonderful indoor complex Chelsea Market. Plenty of casual places to eat and shop and avoid the winter elements.

Lunch near the Metropolitan Museum on a Saturday?

that's a bit of a walk from 82nd and Fifth, especially if the weather is bad.

Plenty of closer places...like the wonderful Turkish restaurant Beyoglu at 81st and Third Ave.

Times Square dinner for 40 recommendations.

Do you have a budget per person...including drinks, tip and taxes?

What day of the week is your party planned for?

Best to be within walking distance as getting 40 people to an uptown or downtown venue will add to your cost.

Are you looking for a "formal" place or a "jeans & sneakers" restaurant?
