And is there a reason we should not go to Le Bernardin?


The jacket and tie requirement?

nah, I just dined there in December, I wore a jacket but no tie. To be truthful, it is wise to spend your money elsewhere, I was not overly impressed.

Interesting. Everyone I know who has been there has raved that it is the best fish restaurant in the States.

The fish was good but not worth the money, as far as the best restaurant in the US for seafood, I disagree.

Am I mistaken or aren't you in college? No offense meant to you or the restaurant, but save your $500 for something else.
I can afford both Big Grin

Just not every day.

if you want fresh fish, oyster bar in grand central is fantastically fresh, however tell the chef not to overcook the fish and you'd have to learn to put the salt on yourself!

Gman is right. Tbird and I had lunch there a couple of weeks ago, and all was excellent. A fraction of the price.

Nolan, I hear that Marea is the new hot spot restaurant to try. 11 Mad park, just underwent renovations, there is that crowded wanna be european style Eatelay (sp?)


went with dunder to eatelay and it was crowded like crazy. Couldn't even get a table at either the pasta or the meat nor the fish spot.

Went to blue smoke instead.

We're thinking about Alto, any objections there?


when are we going to post in the offline section?
Not for an offline, just for my girlfriend and me.


you mean you do not have enough time for an offline with a 'real' crew??
I do, I'm there for more than 1 night Cool
My alternate suggestions (both formal and casual):

1. WD50
2. L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
3. Per Se
4. Lincoln
5. Eleven Madison Park
6. Degustation
7. Sushi Yasuda
8. Peter Luger's Steakhouse
9. Public
10. Momofuku Ko (if not try Noodle or Ssaam bar)

However if your heart is set for LB, then by all means do go as it is very good.
