Good takeout near Tribeca Grand

Mostly asian although any cuisine works. Price not an option. Proximity to the Tribeca Grand is important

Good takeout near Tribeca Grand

Will be staying in NYC for work soon. Looking for decent takeout near the hotel so I don't have to go out to a restaurant every night. Thoughts?

Heirloom Tomato Seedlings?

Try Catalpa Ridge Farm....you can find them at www.jerseygrown.com

Also Territorial Seed Co. will ship any of their seed varities as plants. That's what we did this year.

Anybody remember Cao Palace?

In Allston? It was my first exposure to Vietnamese food when I lived there in the mid 80's. I know they reopened in Kenmore Square for a while but then disappeared. Does anybody know if they ever re-opened anywhere else? Under a different name perhaps?

Amazing 66 -- new in Chinatown

We went. We ate. It was great.

Service, however, was amazingly pushy. We were asked 5 times in the first three minutes if we were ready to order. Granted it was busy but give us a chance to read the menu for chrissakes!

Taking the family to MOMA and then to dinner tonight. (Friday) Promised Chinatown because my son and I want to try Amazing 66. But my wife is pushing to eat closer to the museum. Any ideas for asian not far from 53rd and 5th?

Stew Leonards

We used to shop at the Norwalk store frequently when we lived in Mount Vernon. Since we moved to NJ we haven't been back more than once or twice. I was very excited to discover they were coming to Clifton, NJ and then dismayed to discover it's only a wine store. Sorry to hear that the quality seems to have slipped. As for the sampling issue, many of you sound like the Ben Stiller character in "Along Came Polly"

Crab King - Newark

Anybody know anything about this place? I can't find much by googling. A former co-worker who grew up in Baltimore, swore by it for crabs. My wife is from MD and I'd like to surprise her for our anniversary.

Help: I'm too chicken to roast a chicken!

I've taken to making Marcella's and not even fiddling with the bird...it turns out pretty good....hard to mess up a chicken with a lemon stuffed inside it.

Late-night Chinese Delivery

How about any ideas for late night (after midnight) delivery in the Rockefeller Center area? Just moved our office and those of us on the overnight shift need some tasty late night snacks! Prefer chinese but will take anything, for that matter.

Good food in Northern NJ?

Epernay in Montclair is a fabulous french bistro...though you probably don't need to leave Manhattan for that.
