do you like tasting menus?? do you enjoy three hour long meals served over five to nine courses?? do you want to sit in a relatively quiet and somewhat boring room, surrounded by a mostly older (generally late 40's and way up) kind of crowd?? do you really want to spend $300 on a meal like this?? or more appropriately, does she?? if so, then go ahead.. and yes, you should wear a jacket to the rear room at gramercy tavern.. if not, and if you're not...
Tia Pol; Boqueria, Casa Mono and Baj Jamon are the usual contenders. They're also all but impossible to get into on the weekend, Casa Mono takes reservations and is more of a sit down 'normal' restaurant than the others. Boqueria might, or might only for larger groups. Tia Pol reserves for six or more. Less obvious responses include El Cid (one of the original tapas spots), Oliva, on Houston, La Paella (the old 9th street standby, there since the '70's) and one can...

I've been eating at Lupa for seven or eight years now, and while the popularity has been steadily increasing, it's always been that way if you wanted a reservation, 30 days to the numerical date. The Open Table innovation is recent, and if anything has made it more annoying. Walking in is completely...

If you'd like to eat dinner there at a time other than 5:30 or 6 PM, you need to make a reservation on the day that it opens up. While there are quirks and variations on this, consistently you're not going to be able to get in without being on the phone at 10 am 30 days...
Lupa requires reservations made 30 days out. It is now on OpenTable. You can also walk in, with a wait of generally between 30 and 90 minutes.
I have a Schlesinger Partner Brief Bag. I'm told that Atlas is no longer being produced, or that there was extremely limited availability. I like the bag, the leather quality is great, and the lock is actually pretty heavy duty.
1 - Daniel's is the bagel place on 3rd Avenue and 37th Street. They have great bagels but couldn't give a shit if you wear a suit. 2 - If you're going to Daniel, flagship restaurant of Daniel Boulud in New York, you should wear a suit. You should keep your jacket on. They'll ask you to replace it or leave should you remove it. 3 - You're likely to spend ~$500 for dinner between you and your companion. If you can afford to spend this much on dinner, you should be able...
are you going to work afterward? if not, what would you wear if you had to go to City Hall/the recorder of deeds/records? Weat that.

In my very limited experience with these kinds of outfits, they deliver sub-par items that...
