Coming to Manhattan, NY next Wednesday. Need to figure out what to do Wednesday night. I've done RUB, Daisy Mays, & Blue Smoke. Any other suggestions for Q?

I've been to Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill about 3 years ago. That was really good. Bobby was in the place that night and we got to talk with him and get a picture. The women in the group were all a flutter. He looks like Danny from the Partridge Family to me.

Pies and Thighs has good vinegar-spiked pork and tasty fried chicken. That's in Brooklyn, tho.

Dinosaur is way uptown, but they have pretty alright stuff.

Waterfront AleHouse is in brooklyn and manhattan and has surprisingly good bbq.

Virgil's in midtown is hit or miss, but alright most of the time.

Spanky's, bonelick park, brothers, brother jimmy's, dallas jones, biscuit and smoke joint should all be skipped.....

You could hop over to Penn Station and take the Babylon line to Bayshore and stop by Willie B's. If you don't mind the trek, it's good food and nice people.

I work downtown at 115 Broadway and head home past Willie's every night and would have loved to taken you to Willie's, but alas I am driving south to Florida starting in 20 hours.

I'd say that if you have never been to a game at Yankee Stadium, that would be an option, but Wednesday's is an afternoon game.

I no, I'm pretty much usless.

Anyway, enjoy your stay in The Big Apple!

When I'm in town, I work at One Chase Plaza.

Nancee, Mesa sounds good to me. I could do that again. It has been years. PM me and I'll bring whatever you want.

New York Noodletown - One of the best chinese roast meat places in the city. To early for their famous soft-shelled crab. You want to start with the baby pig then salt-baked shrimp, duck with flowering chives, stuffed baby eggplant and Singapore Mi fun. And if you like soup, don't forget to start off with a bowl.

I'll be at the Mesa Grill bar between 5:30p and 6p. Anyone planning to join us for dinner, please post up so I can get a reservation. Otherwise, join for a drink.

Clint - I'll have your table with me assuming you still want it. :smile:

Definitely bring it. Also some of that great chicken rub if you're producing it yet. I'll meet up for a drink but probably have to head out on the early side.

I am in NYC frequently enough that I know where I want to eat. If things progress the way they are going, I may be moving back in the not so distant future.

Bill - Do you have a line on a three-bedroom apartment, somewhere in the low 20's on the east-side :wink:

Greg and I will try to get there as close to 5:30 as possible. We can eat there as planned or go somewhere else if you prefer. I will email you from home later and if its not too late, you can bring me a care package.

I still have several dozen of the ones that used to work with coffee can lids...remember the good old days??? That was when you threw a shot of turkey or jack into that watered down coke they sold at the swamp...

anyhow, we also have probably numerous variations of every downsized cup ever printed so no thanks

...unless you want to pay for the wine to fill em...

it was even funnier when I checked my bank account tonight and found out I was missing a commission check...now that was funny

but seriously I was good; I merely asked this poor bartendress if this was a joke to which she replied that she had comped us a few to try to ease the pain (think she's been there before?) so I left her a big ass tip and chalked it up to not going to my local hangouts...rub, etc. Fortunately, most of the food was pretty good and not horribly expensive so we chalk it up to a good time was had by all...
