Artisinal - recommended?

I think Artisanal is great, but Taureau is my favorite for fondue. So many choices and it's BYOB too.

Seeking: White Truffle Dishes

Hi, my friends and I were totally bummed to not catch the Sapori d'Ischia white truffle tasting menu and we don't have the afternoon time to go to Del Posto for their white truffle pasta.

Do you have any suggestions of restaurants to go to in the next couple of weeks?

Thank you.

Wolfgang's or striphouse

I think Strip House has a better atmosphere and I LOVE the ribeye there. If you're looking for the porterhouse though, then Wolfgang's. If you do go to Strip House, you have to have their Potatoes Romanoff.

Sriracha Sauce - other flavors

I think M2M (or some name like that) on 3rd Ave & 11th Street has the garlic one.

NOHO NOLITA Brunch

Nolita House is amazing, but they don't take reservations. And if you really wanted to talk, they have a bluegrass band playing.

Acme Bar & Grill takes reservations.

Seeking a brunch place with a prix fixe for a large group

Hi. I run the women's group Some of The Girls - we have a monthly brunch and I've been using the same 2 places - Iguana and Galway Hooker - for a while now. Do you have any suggestions?

These are the constraints for a place:

1) Prix fixe menu
2) Flexibility with numbers (could be 2 of us to 25) WO a guarantee
3) a four top table for our stuff exchange
4) do not require all attendees to be there at the same time in order to be seated

Thanks in advance!

Best all you can eat sushi NYC???

http://www.ashiya2.com/ This place beats Kinoko. My friend introduced me to K - once she tried Ashiya she drives down to the EV from Riverdale rather than go back there.

Easter Brunch

I really liked Peacock Alley's Sunday Brunch - I was there over the holidays:

I can't imagine that they wouldn't be open during Easter.

Seeking: best filet mignon & martini combo in a Manhattan steakhouse

Hi. My best friend's birthday is coming up and he LOVES filet mignon with bearnaise sauce and martinis. What is the best Manhattan steakhouse to take him to?

His favorite place is The Palm (backup) and he also liked Strip House. We went to Dylan's last year and he wasn't impressed.

Thanks!

Chocolate/Wine bar

Sorry no, it was a wine & cheese snack thing that we did; we knew were going elsewhere for food later. People's food looked and smelled great though. HUGE sangria glasses for anyone who's interested :)

Chocolate/Wine bar

I thought it was very cute, but small. The wine choices were good and I still think about the truffled pizza I had while there. Nothing extraordinary about the cheese selection, but there were solid choices (e.g. Shropshire blue). I have told friends who live in the area that I'd definitely go in there with them for drinks in the future.

Manhattan & Queens Crab - Lobster All U Can Eat special

If you're willing to deal with the crowds, Todai http://www.todainyc.com/ used to have crab legs. It's an Asian mega buffet - I would call and ask first.

Where should I have my tea party?

Hi. For the tea itself, I like the St. Regis the best - amazing food, but it's a bit sedate. I haven't been, but Lady Mendl's offers private rooms. Alice's is cute in a kitschy kind of way, but there are a lot of kids around, especially on the weekend. I don't recommend the Mandarin Oriental (great view, but blah food) or the Pierre (they let the tea steep a long time). If you're doing offbeat, I suggest Asian ones: Cha-An or Franchia.

Need a fabulous Salad Nicoise (Niçoise)

Same deal with the ingredients, but the one at Paradou is great.

ANYONE EATEN AT PUNCH? I think it's in the Flat Iron area...

I've eaten in their sister restaurant/bar Wined Up (which is upstairs from Punch). Good food - great wine.

Fried Mac n Cheese Bites

Nolita House has mac & cheese spring rolls served with a bacon bechamel sauce. YUMMERS! Absolutely 4th in the WV also serves them (they're in little triangles).

Strip House - what cut to order?

They've had the potatoes romanoff every time that I've gone but you might want to call and ask. Yes, they're more like onion strings. Unbelievable addictive when you dip them in the stilton sauce and drape them over a ribeye :)

Strip House - what cut to order?

Hi. The potatoes romanoff are amazing. When I go, certain friends order their OWN side to eat (and do so at the expense of eating less of their steaks). The fries are good, but are just fries. I think the fried onions and the creamed corn with pancetta are two other standout sides.
