    Q. I need you to recommend a restaurant. I’m a 35-year-old professional in Manhattan, and I am looking for a place where I can take my boys from the office to meet this smoking-hot girl I hooked up with at Lily Pond in the Hamptons this summer.

    Me and my team, we’re big into that whole meatpacking district thing. We like steak, veal. Maybe Italian food? There’s one dude from Mexico City who eats only fish, which is weird. Maybe this girl would eat fish, too. I don’t know. We’ve been to something like 10 restaurants now, and I think her favorite foods are truffle fries and ketchup. But she drinks Champagne. So maybe bottle service?

    Speaking of, this place has to be exclusive. I need a little exclusivity to offset the fact that I’m taking a girl to dinner with six dudes who do math for a living, and not six girls who look just like her. Usually, she likes to eat in a room with women who look like beautiful giraffes and dudes tall enough to look down on them.

    Which is, by the way, a message I totally endorse: I’m a former rugby back, 6-foot-3, 220!

    Finally, if there’s a guy in the restroom who could hand me a towel after I’m done doing my business in there and washing my hands, maybe give me a mint or something? I would be into that. Old school! I would tip that guy $5 just for being there, you know?

    That's hilarious, especially more so when I first read it from Sifton describing the atmosphere at LAVO.

    I've had a few enjoyable brunches at the West Village Petite Abeille.

    Any opinions on Minetta Tavern for brunch? Staying in meatpacking this weekend and don't have the patience for a brunch line. MT had reservations available

    Far better than any of the places you would be waiting in line for brunch in the area. Get the burger, eggs and truffles, and a side of duck hash.

    The $26 burger is overrated. Have the $16 burger and a decent drink instead.

    It's not a bad burger, but afterwards you're left wondering why you just spent $26 on a hamburger.

    The $16 burger is as good. Or bad. Or overpriced.

    Nice room. After 6 months in this hellhole my wife and I went back to NYC and hit the MT just after landing. I looked over to her after we ordered drinks and she had a tear in her eye.
    "What's up?"
    "It's just nice to be in a normal restaurant."

    Prolly overpriced and nothing mind blowing but its a pretty delicious burger. I should try the $16 one next time. I love the space and love that the bartenders actually know their stuff and they have a great selection of drinks. The other food there is a pretty good value IMO.

    Your wife is funny
