Dinner Tonight

Thanks for the replies. Jungsik didn't work out so we wound up at Louro. It turned out to be a very nice choice.

Dinner Tonight

I'm scrambing to make a last minute reservation for three tonight at 7pm. I've narrowed it down to three choices with availability at that time: Hearth, Jungsik and Recette. To those who have been, which would you choose?

Thanks so much!

Brooklyn Fare

I called for a reservation yesterday morning and had no luck. I guess getting a reservation just got a lot harder.

Dinner recs in vicinity of 23rd and 7th

I've found two places in the area that I've been meaning to try: Nuela and the Breslin. But I'd like to give my fellow diners some additional choices.

We're looking for a casual atmosphere with good food and a diversly priced menu. If I had to give a price point I would say anywhere between $50-100pp including beverage, tax and tip.

Can anyone make any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

Il Bacco is pricey and mediocre at best. For the same and sometimes better quality food at a fraction of the price go around the corner to Aunt Bella's

M Wells - what's on the menu these days?

All the recent write ups are making it difficult to get in. I got there at 1 pm on Sunday and there were at least 20 people in line outside. I went elsewhere.

Unfortunately, I can only get there on the weekends. Can anyone suggest a time where the waits are not as long?

What happened to Marino's Fish Market in Astoria?

I called when I first noticed it was closed and the owner directed me to Best Yet too. (They closed because they sold the building.) I was not impressed with the selection or level of freshness. Certainly is not Marino's quality fish as far as I'm concerned. Agree that International Meat Market is tops on 30th avenue for meat.

we're talking figures here people

You can get a 3 course lunch when it reopens. I think the price point will be $56

Where did you find the menu? The restaurant took it off its website while it is closed for renovations this week. Can you post a link?

The tagiolini and lobster must have been flying out of the kitchen yesterday b/c I had the exact same meal as well.

daffy -- were you there for lunch yesterday?

I had lunch there yesterday and requested the vanilla souffle. I've had it before and wanted my dining companion to try it b/c I think it is the only memorable dessert. Unfortunately, I was told they could not accomodate us. As a consolation prize we were served the milk and honey followed by two sorbets, one of which was an olive oil sorbet. Olive oil sorbet was delicious.

Apiary - suggestions?

Finally making it to Apiary tonight and looking forward to Chef Bryan's creations. I'm sure we will be ordering the sweetbreads. Any other recommendations?

aldea, dishes to avoid and must haves

Thanks for the timely report. I made the mistake of having 2 kati rolls for lunch this afternoon so I may not be able to do the 5 course. Definitely will be having the arroz de pato and the sonhos (with ice cream!) though.

aldea, dishes to avoid and must haves

Now I am torn. I am heading there tomorrow evening for the first time and I don't know if I should try the new tasting menu or stick to menu items. Decisions, decisions...

Redhook ballfields are open!

Redhook ballfields newbie here!

Can someone give a quick primer on:
- when is the best time to go to avoid the lines
- what are the "must try" dishes
- is it worth the trip from Queens? If so, where does one park?

Thanks.

Bob's Place in Floral Park

I've been there several times. Most recently, about three weeks ago. The food is well prepared but I find it to be a bit pricey for the neighborhood. It's too bad, because if it was less expensive I likely would go more often. If you give it a try, let me know what you think.
