I'm sure your trip is long over but I felt compelled to respond. We loved Bha Bha in the old location, but tried it in the new one and had a terrible time. Our food took about 45 minutes and even then it was evident that the waiter had forgotten to put in the order for one entree in our party. Food was cold/heated under heatlamps by the time we got it. A very expensive disaster. We would never go back.

Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius/XM

Hi there. You can write to radio@marthastewart.com but I'm afraid the die is cast. I was a producer there and they let us all go, plus the hosts, to do this new format. They don't tell listeners what is going on either, for some reason. But that is the story. I agree that it was a terrible decision :-)

Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius/XM

The company (MSLO) couldn't come to an agreement to keep the entire channel, so they shut it down and moved Martha to Stars (107) for a couple of hours of programming a day.

Il Mulino - gift certificate expired!

Alas we allowed our Il Mulino gift certificate to expire (11/09). Anyone know whether they might let us squeak by and use it anyway?

I'm trying to find an Indian restaurant around E 28th that can fit 15 people for dinner on a Wed. Crazy! I know. Anyone know a place? Thank you.

Restaurants for elderly NYC visitors

Picholine sounds perfect for what you want, though pricey. Also, consider Cafe Luxembourg on W 70th. Always lots of grey hair in there (!), the food is good and the prices a bit more reasonable.

Radio City on Saturday; may end up at tourist trap

Dervish on 46th bn 6th and 7th is pretty yummy and not too exotic (though it's Turkish). Red Eye Grill is good but really pricey.

Food by Chef Lars...catering in Miami

Hi Yomyb,
Just wanted to get back with you. We had our wedding this weekend in Lauderdale, catered by Chef Lars and the wonderful Sonia, with cake by Todo Dulces and all went smashingly! The food really was fantastic, especially given the teeny kitchen they had to work in. Sonia took care of every detail and they were just a joy. I need another cake from Todo Dulces!! One piece was NOT enough.

Thank you so so much for your referrals. Sonia and Lars really made the day.

All the best,
Cary

Favorites in Lincoln Center Area

Welcome back! Best pizza is a hole in the wall called La Traviata on 68th b/n Columbus and Bway. What they lack in ambience, they make up for in great pizza.

Try the (giant) cookies at Levain Bakery. 74th b/n Columbus and Amsterdam. To die for.

Pomodoro on Columbus near 71st is a nice Italian joint -- food seems to have really improved ;ately.

Best Chinese is Cottage at Amsterdam and 77th.

For Sushi, Empire Sushi on 72nd b/n West End and Bway. Really nice place to eat in -- lovely people -- but great takeout too (and they have more than sushi but that's all I ever get there).

Caterer/wedding cake in Lauderdale?

Oh yomyb, I totally have tears in my eyes reading that. It sounds fabulous. Plus I am hugely psyched (and relieved) because we picked Chef Lars for our March wedding. I got such a good vibe from them, the presentation of the food was terrific and the food itself was just to die for (at the tasting). Thank you so much -- I really appreciate your recco. All best wishes for a long and happy life together!

Your fave restaurant near Waldorf?

We are taking out a couple who's staying there. We want something closeby for their convenience, and it can be swanky. As for our taste, we love 11 Madison Park, for example. Thanks.

Caterer/wedding cake in Lauderdale?

Hi there -- we are New Yorkers getting married in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea in March. Can anyone recommend a good caterer (we're thinking maybe steak / salmon menu?) and/or wedding cake bakery? We'll have about 50 people. Thanks!

Good dinner place near Webster Hall?

For four people in their 40s and 50s-ish. No dietary restrictions and doesn't necessarily need to be a cheap eat. Thank you!

Dinner for 10 people on the Upper West Side

I second the Compass suggestion. (It's in the 70s, but still.) My boyfriend's (discriminating) family had a great 10-person dinner there and it was not so easy to find a place to accommodate 10 (he was on jury duty so I was doing the calling around -- tough).

Did you notice that the Times did a piece on African food in NYC this past weekend? You can still read it for free on the website. Look in travel or try this link:
