PAOLA’s

Near the Guggenheim at 92 and Madison dinner was very good. We shared a Caesar Salad and Scallops and a dessert I brought in from Lady M. Beautiful but not worth it On the inside Paola’s is tall ceiling oak panel attentive waitstaff The ladies next to us […]

Island Restaurant

Before heading to the Guggenheim we grabbed a bite at Island. We thought it was fine. But.. the Caesar salad was too much vinegar. And not creamy enough. The Brussels were good as was the salmon. I liked the seafood skewer but should have asked to substitute a […]

Blue Smoke- Flatiron

Really not good.  The baby backs were moist and tasty, the fries only average, the mac & cheese was creamy and flavorless until you got the bacon bits.   The brisket was dry and the chocolate cake was grainy and generally not good.  larry and I sat next […]

Avra on Madison

Jules Bistro

We had a 2 pm theatre at NYTW and searched out Jules Bistro for a croquet madame for lunch.  Down a few steps past three tiny outdoor tables we entered a tin ceilinged room with just the right amount of tables and a Jazz singer in the back. […]

CORKED/Hershey RV show

After a 3 hour drive out to Hershey PA for what is supposed to be the largest RV show in the country we stopped for dinner In Bethlehem PA I thought it was a perfectly cute college town. Old historic downtown street filled with cute shops and outdoor […]

Paname

Nice little french place in the neighborhood.  We have been here twice and happy both times.  Tonight we ordered the duck and the pork in wine sauce on the prix fixe menu.  The Caesar salad and the Mozzarella/Tomato were both very good and the two desserts, both chocolate […]

Lafayette

We met before the theatre at NYTW, The House That Will Not Stand, at Lafayette in the Village One block south and then a 5  minute walk East from Washington Square Park, then back that block and another 3 blocks to NYTW.   This in an effort to […]
