Chinese near Bryant Park?

Can anyone recommend a Chinese food restaurant that is walking distance from Bryant Park? Not too expensive, but decent enough atmosphere that we can eat there (as opposed to many places that are primarily for take out or delivery). Thanks!

NJ kosher wedding

Temple Beth Ahm is really nice and has delicious food. I believe the same caterers handle weddings at Temple Emanu El in Closter, NJ, which is also supposed to be beautiful.

Restaurant for bride + 7 friends

I am looking for a restaurant for a small get together for a friend - our party will be 8 women, 25-28 years old for dinner and drinks - we are NOT looking for the cheesy bachelorette stand-bys.

I am looking for somewhere with a fun atmosphere - somewhere that you wouldn't just go on any night of the week, but also isn't a fortune.

I would also be interested if anyone knows of any places that offer a price fixe on Saturday night (not including drinks, of course).

We are open to any neighborhood and would prefer American, Italian, sushi, or tapas, but open to other suggestions.

Suggestions greatly appreciated!

Downtown private room for dinner party?

I know that Vento on Hudson Street does private parties - I have actually never been, but looked into having a party there. It is supposed to be very good, and pretty reasonably priced.

casual meet the parents dinner

Hudson Place on 36th and 3rd is very good. They have a nice selection of food at reasonable prices, and the atmosphere is very nice without being trendy.

Healthy takeout on the UES

Good Health on 1st between 74th and 75th has a nice selection - salads, sandwiches, various veggie burgers, and both vegetarian and meat entrees. I have tried a number of different things and have never been disappointed.

Brunch for 40

Opia on Lex and 57th offers a seated, 3-course prix fixe brunch for large groups starting at $25/person (there are a few menus to choose from). I have actually never eaten there, but the restaurant is beautiful and I have heard the food is good.

Moderate priced near 86th/3rd?

I love Caffe Buon Gusto on 77th b/w 2nd and 3rd. The food is delicious and most pasta, chicken, and veal dishes are $12-$15 - fish can be a few dollars more. You can check out the menu on MenuPages. Also, it is quite small, so you may want to make a reservation.
