Searching for Ricotta Cheesecake

I have had the ricotta cheeesecake at Murray's in the Village a couple of times and thought it was very good (over a year ago, however.)

Thanks for the detailed suggestions. I'll be trying them out during my visit at the end of the month.

I would like to try Alfanoose during my next visit but I am not familiar with the menu items. I have read several recommendations for the falafel pita sandwich which I would like to try, but I would also like to get a good sample of the other items that would be most representative of this style of food. Any suggestions?

Little Owl Reservations

I will be visiting NYC at the end of April and would like to make reservations for lunch at Little Owl. The online reservations website says I am not within the time period for making reservations but I haven't been able to find just what this time period is? Are reservations even needed for a weekday lunch?

Best cheesecake in Manhattan?

In addition to the places mentioned I have also enjoyed the cheesecake at Brooklyn Diner, 2 locations midtown, and the ricotta cheesecake from Murrays Cheese in West Village.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

I will be in Chicago in 2 weeks, staying at Hyatt Regency near Michigan Ave just south of E. Wacker Dr, and I am wondering if any one knows of a restaurant in the general area that serves Lemon Ricotta pancakes for breakfast ?

Reservations Necessary?

I will be visiting NYC in October. I'm on a limited budget and therefore would like to visit some of the more upscale restaurant at lunch rather than dinner. In general, are reservations needed for lunch hours as well as the dinner hours at places such as Gotham Bar and Grill, Keens, and Union Square Cafe?

I checked Day by Day online and they serve only lunch except for Sunday when they have brunch. But the lunch choices sound good - I'm sure I'll stop by there for a soup and sandwich.

I will be visiting Philadelphia and this deli is near my hotel. Does anyone recommend their breakfasts or lunches?

French Toast

I have been searching through so many breakfast menus on NYC restaurant websites that I can't remember where I saw "Gingerbread French Toast." offered. Can anyone help me? Thanks
