After seeing the No Reservations episode on Emiligia-Romagna, I would see if Michael White's restaurants are open. Then perhaps Mario Batali's places.

You going to go outside and grill in his weather? I don't mind some snow, but this is a driving sleet and snow in high winds. Our town emergency line said to expect more power outages.


Just one more sip.

Osteria Morini is excellent.

It sounds good, but I keep trying to watch what I eat. The gym still has no power. During the six days our power was out, I wasn't good.


Just one more sip.

Just one more sip.

You mean this place? http://primeandbeyond.com/

They've since added a wine list and a $30 corkage fee. Frown

Thanks! Oooh, they have a location in NJ which isn't too far from me. $25 corkage per bottle, 2 bottles max.

We had a Barbera followed by their house wine that they pour out of taps into carafes.

I realize it's NYC, but how many restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Thursday? I'm not a New Yorker, but I would think that might be a problem even in NYC.


Stay thirsty my friends.

There will be quite a few open actually. The problem is that if you are interested in the top restaurants, they will either be close or their menu is limited to turkey and other Thanksgiving fixings.

Looks great, g-man, but I learned that authentic might not be exactly what I might want after a place in Elmhurst where I ordered pig intestine in hot pot.


Just one more sip.

haha it's actually a full mix of both

there's definitely some regular proteins but all very well prepared. I met the owner and struck up fun convo because it turned out we worked at the same firm together. Ended up going down the menu and ordering a good chunk of everything. (like 20 things) Definitely one of the few restaurants that really stood out to me in recent memory

Avoid the pretentious and pushy staff at carravagio Italian restaurant. The entrees sucked, were completely overpriced but the mushroom risotto was pretty good but not on the menu. The decor is nice and definitely a place to be seen for New Yorker elite. Too bad most of battali's restos were closed on thanksgiving.

one thing that is exciting is that the empire state building got brand new LED lights installed

16.7 million colors instead of the old 10 ;-)

In the process of planning a trip to Manhattan. Have made dinner plans for Le Bernardin and lunch at Gordon Ramsey. Would appreciate any recos for additional dining and/or shows etc.

Take a bite of something at Gordon Ramsey's, jump up, spit it out, and yell, "It's RAW! It's RAW! YOU #@&*?#! DONKEYS!"
