@squinney,
Just saw Roberta's thread about her family and growing up in the Bronx. Don't know how I have missed it until now, but hope to make my way through it later today.

Anyway, it made me think how I might feel Saturday upon meeting her and others in attendance, which leads to this...

I'm not prone to withholding affectionate displays. If anyone meeting up on Saturday for lunch doesn't want to be hugged, just put your hand up to stop me. I won't be offended. I get that I may violate the space of those not used to it.

(But, if Roberta doesn't stop me, she's gonna get the biggest hug ever!)

@Joe Nation,
How am I getting to Staten Island? Shocked

Isn't there a subway or ferry or something? Paddle boat? Do I need to bring my swim suit? I thought I was coming with Thomas that morning, but now you have me second guessing that he has disclosed to me all of the info I need in order to make such a decision.

Deb - I'll definitely respect the ribs.

Squinny, I'm happy to get as big a hello hug as you wanna gimme.

You take a boat to Staten Island.

Deb, Here's the link to the jazz club: http://www.smallsjazzclub.com/index.cfm

I thought a link would be better than writing stuff by hand.

Hasta later, kiddo.

You're funny, Bunny! Ya know it could just be whatever we are in front of when we decide we are hungry, right?

Unless someone has an "OMG you can't be in NYC without eating at..." kinda suggestion.
Yeah, I 've got one u might like for a lite meal and for desserts, plenty of desserts; good ones,
particularly including SOFT, delicate, tender profiteroles; many, many slices of pies n of cakes.
Most places that offer profiteroles, including expensive places: u coud break your teeth on those things.
French pastry shoud be SOFT. I forgot to mention it with my earlier suggestions.

Its Edgar's Cafe on 84th St, just a few steps west of Broadway on the north (uptown) side of 84th St.
Edgar Allan Poe used to live there and he wrote there. He wrote The Raven when he lived there in the early 1800s.
The ceiling is designed to look like its being consumed in a great conflagration, betokening The Fall of the House of Usher.

Anyway, its good for a lite meal (e.g., cheese lasanya), its mindblowing on sweets, and its especially good qua delicate profiteroles.
(low priced place; informal)

Its also near some movie theaters, for those who r so inclined, but since dlowan has come all the way from Austrailia,
chances r that she does not wanna spend her time watching movies.

Yeah, most seafood restaurants have a menu section condesendingly entitled 'TURFIES".

@roger,
Yes, something I learned from having a child that ordered only "chicken fingers" for the first 12 years of his life. I'm not opposed to those given I've learned that chickens now have sizable and satisfying fingers.

@roger,

Dlowan:
Here r some more possibilities, from my friend Marty
who is in charge of the modestly priced Mensa dining SIG.
He recommends them:
5 Napkin Burger place at South East corner of 9th Ave & 45 St.

Etc, Etc, 44th St East of 9th Ave

Marseilles North East corner 44th & 9th Ave.

Good Luck with them!

Can't tell you how much I enjoyed dinner tonight, sitting across from da bunny. Smiling big time.

I mentioned a place that has excellent onion soup--La Bonne Soupe. Here's the menu
