New Restaurants in Wappingers Falls

Thanks for posting. We were wondering about Nemmi's, but were skeptical - looks like a roadhouse. We love Tanjore, but we will try this next.

Buttermilk Channel?

Never had the chicken and waffles, but the side of bacon (they have it at dinner and brunch) is one of my favorite things to eat in the city right now. Also, the duck meatloaf is delicious. I found the burger underwhelming, btw.

Red Hook brunch?

RThis is the best choice. Sit in the garden. Very good brunch.

Need Ideas for Private Party on a Friday night in Brooklyn

Bar Toto in Park Slope. I went to a wedding there once and it was fun. Nothing fancy, but good food and easy people to deal with. Staff was great.

cheap birthday meal in Brooklyn?

The backyard at the Ice House (Red Hook) is great. They also have great pulled pork sliders (plus other bar food that is above average). It's pretty much a dive, but we love the cheap beer and awesome pork sliders.

What Brooklyn dinner experience (tomorrow night!) will persuade my wife to move there with me?

throwing in my votes for Good Fork (Red Hook) and Marlow and Sons in Williamsburg. She will like either of those... i promise you. Go Brooklyn!!!!

wedding reception venue, 50-75 people?

That seems like a small budget, so I don't know if these will work, but here goes... I went to a wedding at Aurora in Williamsburg and that was lovely (I'm guessing 75 people for 5k may not be their price point but never hurts to inquire). My second suggestion is Bar Toto in Park Slope. We went to a wedding there as well and it was great fun and the staff was excellent and the food was pretty good too.

Late Friday Dinner in Brooklyn

I "third" all of these sentiments. Totally agree on all fronts.

Aurora, vinegar hill, convivum, petit crevette - wedding dinner for 30?

You can cross Aurora off your list unless they have changed their prices for large prix fix groups (was in a wedding there).

Astoria (greek) lunch recs?

Looking through the threads and not seeing a lot of current recommendations for Astoria greek food. Can anyone help? Want to have lunch tomorrow and we are looking for greek/american comfort food (ie: moussaka , pastichio , spanakopita etc). What are your favorites? Thank you!

Fort Defiance - how are the waits for brunch on weekends?

I agree with both posters. Have had lunch and brunch there. Won't go back again, but I would give dinner a shot. (At brunch on Saturday at 1pm- there was no wait).

Rabbithole in Williamsburg Brooklyn?

Nope. Food is mediocre and service is like a snails trail. We just get coffee and pastries to go- which are fabulous.

recommendations for small wedding rehearsal dinner in brooklyn

I have done more than a few special event dinners at Aurora and highly recommend it. We did NYE there twice (with 14 people) as well as a 30th bday party of 20, a small wedding dinner of 25 (at one long table) and I was also in a wedding there where the restaurant was shut down for us (about 60 people). All of the events were really great and the staff was friendly, accommodating and the food was top notch. Good luck!

Dining Near Ikea

If you can wait until 530, you should definitely try to go to the Good Fork. Really good. It's a real treat. Best in Red Hook IMO. The 3-5pm timeframe, as others pointed out, is the downtime usually before dinner service.

BABY SHOWER IN BROOKLYN?

I didn't end up going with them in the end, but Home/Made in Red Hook is really cute, small and quaint. Great food and people. Sweet Melissa in Carroll Gardens also does baby showers in a private back area that they have as well...they were a little more $ and were hard to nail down, but the space is perfect for a baby shower. Good luck!

Weekday Lunch in Brooklyn

I love Aurora for lunch. Whenever I am not working, I try to go there for lunch. This would fall in the more upscale category rather than ethnic btw.

Has Totonno's in Coney Island reopened yet?

ITA, dhs. Totonno's, specifically the one in CI, was my favorite pie in NYC. I thought they were scheduled to open months ago. Sad, if it's not happening.

Good Delivery in Williamsburg/Greenpoint?

Khao Sarn is my favorite thai in WB. They have great drunken noodle and I love the way they do their veggie duck. Chinese is a little harder to come by... I like M Shanghai but they have spotty delivery in my experience. We sometimes get Red Bowl, but I would never call it great.

Birthday Dinner Recommendation - Brooklyn

My two faves: Al Di La (Park Slope) and Dressler (Williamsburg). Al Di La can be challenging because they do not take reservations. Dressler does however. Both are great for special occasions as well. If you search the board you will find quite a bit about these two.

Cono O'Pescatore in Williamsburg

Basic Williamsburg red sauce, old school joint. Decent food (nothing ground-breaking/ expect the standards), service is hit or miss. I do love their chicken parm with linguine on the side.

Chinatown NYEve

Thinking of heading to Chinatown for dinner on New Years Eve. Would love recs for a non -fancy (but still a sit down, eat in, with beer or wine) that won't have a prix fix and will be easy to just pop in whenever on that night. Is that even possible? Price not a big deal, just want to avoid reservations and a fixed menu. TIA!

Party of 2. Haven't been in a very long while. What's the best time to go to avoid a wait on Monday night these days? Do you think we will be ok if we get there right at 6? Any advice welcome. TIA

Lunch spot in Brooklyn Heights or Dumbo?

Meeting a friend today in this area and don't know lunch options very well. Nothing fancy, any cuisine...but some place nice where two friends can chat and have a pleasant lunch. TIA
