    Moderator's Note: This post is about dining at Cru since Gallante has left the building. Was wondering as I was thinking of dining there on Saturday, but dont know how much, if any of a change in the food and service.
  10. I am looking to hold a dinner for fifty in the fall, and need a private room. I am looking for middle eastern cuisine. It would be helpful to be in the west end. Thanks for any help.
  11. Will be there in a few weeks, staying at the breakers. Usually go to la sirena, but they are closed for the summer. Look for recs in the area, or west palm beach. Must take dinner reservations, and not be a chain. Price not too much of an issue.
  12. Will be there in a few weeks, any suggestions. Price not an issue. E
  13. I will be in Forte dei Marmi in a few weeks. How expensive is Lorenzo, and could I take my non fish eating 12 year old there? Any other suggestions in Forte would be appreciated.
  14. Wanted to just follow up. Cafe Fauchon for breakfast was a disaster. The door was locked, we knocked, was told they were closed, even though it was 10:00 and they said they opened at 9:30. 1 poached egg, two cups of coffee, baguette, 45Euros. They spilled hot coffee over two of us, with barely an apology. No pain au chocolat. Just croissants, baguette, and minimal egg selections. 20 minutes to get breakfast. The room, however is really cute, but the experience a huge disappointment. When I asked the manager for a business card to send them the bill for cleaning my coat, they looked at me like I was insane. On an aside, dinner at La Rotonde in Montparnasse was really good.
  15. Will be there in a few weeks, and any suggestions appreciated.
  16. Looking for a pub with a private room for dinner for 60 80 on a Saturday night in the fall. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks Ellen
  17. Will be staying in the 2nd, near the Place de Madeline. Disappointed my last breakfast at La Duree(way too expensive, and service non existent). What other good cafe's are nearby that have wonderful breakfast pastry/cafe/ ambiance? Thanks
  18. thanks, i would be taking over the restaurant and brasserie. My dinner at lombard was definitely better than that at prism.
  19. It is for a private event, and the don is unavailable
  20. I am in the process of planning a dinner, and have it down to there two restaurants. Any thought are appreciated.
  21. ended up at Moti Mahal, which we enjoyed. Good service. 3 course dinner special through top table at 20£ a very good deal for the quality. Had a chili squid starter, and vegetable kofta with saffron yoghurt sauce that was wonderful. My dining companions enjoyed their chicken tikka and lamb curry as well. At the discount, it is a no brainer to return.
  22. Thanks. I ate there last week pre theatre, and service took over an hour for entrees. We ended missing dessert. Food is very good, but concerned about doing another pre theatre there.
  23. Looking for a suggestion for good Indian near the strand, pre theatre next week. All suggestions appreciated. I was thinking red fort, but think it will be too far a walk.
  24. saw the review, but question weather I want to spend 20 quid on entrees that mostly gets 5&6 out of 10. I may switch to cafe anglais, which sounds more festive on a Saturday night.
  25. Have a reservation at Avista for Saturday, but the few reviews have not been great. Has anyone eaten here? If not, i can do Cafe Anglais, which but thoughts on that would be welcome as well. Thanks
