Thanks for the good advice I picked up here. We spent a lovely weekend in the city last weekend (except for the rain of course.)
Had a dynamite meal at Crispo. My 15 yr old son couldn't get enough of the sausage wrapped in sage leaves. We had veal, duck, and a pasta/sausage dish, as well as a meat & cheese platter. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the endive salad, but that's because I'm not a big endive lover. It was a great experience, and the family was really pleased.
Also ate one night at Pam's Real Thai, and it didn't disappoint either. My husband's was a bit overdone (twice cooked pork) but all the rest was wonderful, and a great value. (made up for the pricey theatre tix from that day!)
Anyway, thx again.... can't wait to come back for more food.
