    1. Check out Home on Cornellia - it's fantastic.

        I haven't been to Home in ages. What should we order? Do they have a garden? It's really tiny like Po.

          they do have a garden; it's small but lovely. i've only been there for brunch, but it was delicious. fantastic fish as i recall...

      2. I will second Market Table. We went last night and both the food and service were amazing.

          1. We just went to Palma and dined in the lovely garden. Food was good. Olives with fennel and bread were good. We had a salad, fried calamari and sage (very nice, cooked perfectly, loved the fried sage leaves, no red sauce), fish stew (large enough for two to share) and a bottle of wine.

            I used to go to Cornelia Street Cafe (just celebrated 30 years) often years ago and have rediscovered it. We have had several delicious meals there lately (mussels, fish, duck, salads, etc.).

            Don't know if I would classify either place as "excellent."
