1st. thanks for the bread pudding info. Second, coming back to NYC after 6 months working in Italy. If I see another bowl of pasta, or GOD FORBID, another pizza Im going postal. What I want is:

Day one. Sushi. Do I go with the old workhorse, Tomoe? Im on a budget. I like toro and exotics, mackerels, copper river salmon etc. Anywhere else with a big bang for the buck? Before I left I went to Jewel Bako. PERFECT place for a date (go early, no attitude), nice selection, but certainly expensive for the un-Tomoe portions. If it wasnt for my dat, I wouldve eaten like I normally do and spent 200 easily.

Day two. Small plates. Lots of Wine. Went to Pintxos 6 months ago. Had a blast. Great wine. (mostly) Great plates. Anywhere else? Same budget. Anyone? Maybe even kill 2 birds with one fork and glass...................
Day three. Getting drunk on Sangria. Ive had it from La Palapa (good, pricey) to Alioli in Brooklyn (very nice), great food accompaniments. And most places in between. Any suggestions?

Day four: Soul Food. I appreciate...I forgot his name up on Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Like 149th. The best. But I dont want to have to go all the way up there again for excellent fried chicken. Anyone?

Thanks.
