  1. Great! Thank you both, I will look into that website, seems like a good start!
  2. Hello! I hope I'm in the right forum, if not, please correct me! I am a big fan of grower Champagnes, and as a semi-recent transplant to NYC I don't know where to go? With V-day quickly approaching, I'm looking to you all for a little advice? Thanks a lot! Miranda
  3. that sounds delicious!! and i've never been to zabars. Sounds like a plan, thanks a lot!
  4. thanks for all the thoughts! I am not worried about sight seeing as I'm moving to nyc at the end of the month. I'm fine without brunch, especially coming from Portland-land of brunches. Ok, so a bagel(or some similar snack) and a good (is that possible?) cup of coffee sound good, where should I go?
  5. I am going to New York for 24 hours and I will be with a friend who has never been before. We're staying at the Parker Meridian at, and we want to walk around all day sunday, but I think we will need a yummy meal to start out. Where in that neighborhood should we go? We aren't looking to spend a ton, but at the same time its only 24 hours, and we would like to have a memeorable meal. Thank you so much!
  6. You must have Breakfast at Podnah's Pit! It is straight forward, soulful food. The best biscuits and gravy in town and grits to dream about. Lunch options are many and varied, lots of new sandwhich spots that are getting lots of attention-- Meat, Cheese, Bread being one of them, and Bunk being another. Bunk is chaotic and crowded and I think it's very Portland-y. Also, there is a very special lunch to be had at a place called Evoe at Pastaworks. Definatly look into that. As for dinner, Toro Bravo is a good recommendation, but just know that the wait is usually about an hour, so plan to have a drink upstairs while you wait. Pok Pok / whisky soda lounge is a really fun and delicious meal-- Thai street foods and generally yummy things. Great cocktails. So much more. . . beast is a great option, as is DOC, Paley's is classic, Clyde Common is pretty fun. . . Depends a lot on your own tastes, too.
  7. Oh Excellent! I'm not opposed to Pig n pancake, but I've been there before and it can be a little fluorescent and full of teenagers/ small children. I will let you know what we end up doing! Thanks for the suggestions so far. . .
  8. I'm heading to cannon beach, OR pretty soon, and I know that I want to eat at the Ecola seafood restaurant for dinner/lunch, but I'm wondering about a good breakfast? We are late risers, but we welcome good coffee and mimosas too! Any recommendations are welcome. Also, pub recommendations are very welcome ! Thanks so much! ~Miranda
  9. oh man, i would totally kill to eat my weight in lobster. . . that said, i'm getting really excited about all these suggestions! Shake shack was something that I've been considering, so its good to know that it's not an unreasonable idea! thanks so much everyone!
  10. thanks for the help so far, sorry about not being very specific about budget, basically as cheap as possible but I'm obviously not wanting to eat cheez-its in my hotel room so cheap meaning I have about $20 a day I'd feel ok spending. I know, that's like nothing, right? I have no doubt I will go over budget, but I'm going to try to be good! I hate to miss all the great food in new york, but this is a scouting trip for a potential move, so I trust I'll have a chance later to fit in the really really great stuff. thanks again for all the great ideas so far!
  11. hi everyone! I'm coming to new york soon and i'll just be there a couple of days but my boyfriend and I are pretty much broke, so i'm feeling nervous about what we will be able to find in the food dept. We want something yummy, he wants pizza mainly i think, but otherwise we are totally totally open. suggestions? we will be staying in midtown, but i'm visiting nyu so we'll be down in those parts too. thanks a lot!!
  12. Hi! i'm overwhelmed and confused about where to eat in newport, or! any recommendations would be appreciated. thanks a lot!
  13. Great ideas! thanks, especially that she has conversions to wedding cake sizes, that is great. I was thinking I'd best make a library trip before buying, for sure.
  14. Hello! I have been asked to bake a wedding cake, and I want to get a book or two to have around as a security blanket! I would like it to be really helpful in the ways of fondant, buttercreams, decorations etc and maybe even contain some structural suggestions. What's the best of the best book that i should buy? I'm sure you guys know!! thanks a lot!
