    BLT Market

    I am happy for him that he is able to make as much $$$$$$$ as possible
  4. In My opinion the food at JG has better flavors ← Upon thinking more about it, my preference for Ducasse is really a matter of style. I'm generally not as into restaurants that tend to push the edge in terms of flavor combinations, as I am into harmony. I'd take Mozart over Stravinsky on most days, and Ducasse over Jean-Georges. However, I respect and enjoy both. I do believe Jean-Georges is operating at the top level, so my ADNY/Pe Se comments were contradictory. I've deleted them from my previous post. ← Sorry I ment JG is Better the Per Se not ADNY
  5. 1. Robuchon the small plates here are as good as any food i have had anywhere in the world 2. JG 3. Daniel, Bouley I have not been to Daniel in years, the tasting menu i had here a few weeks a go was excellent Bouleys tasting menu is excellent, but if Bouley is in the house and you ask him to cook for you its outstanding the other restaurants mentioned above(excluding Per Se) as good as they might be are not in the same league

    Rosie, what is that dish that looks like clams and something, you wrote "clams with linguini" , what is going on there, salmon dish looks beautiful
  8. If they cant sell the reservation, would they call the restaurant and cancel or does the restaurant loose
  9. Jean Georges or Perry St for lunch. There is no better food for the money served anywhere in the city Robuchon for small plates and drinks for dinner Wd 50 was one of my favorite restaurants , my last meal there was horrible 3 of us ordered 14 dishes all poorly cooked/prepared/executed poorly plated, flavor and taste virtually none existing
  10. Robuchon Lunch, WD-50 Dinner Both of the restaurants are unlike any in the US Both Casual

    Sorry Curlz, took so long to respond, I believe if you are a regular they ask you if you would like the chef to cook for you, they asked me this after i had been there 6-7 times , alll i could say is that the food is nothing like the menu, its a lot more creative This was my menu a few months a go Poached Tomato with Mozzarella Ice cream Oysters with Avocado and Watermelon Salmon Tartare with Smoked Ice Cream Scallops with Yogurt-Black Olive Puree Cold Cherry Soup with Foie Gras Torchon and Hazulnts Potato Puree with Mushrooms, Truffle Oil, Poached Egg Tuna with Braised Black Sesame Seeds Duck with Caramelized Turnip, Fig Caviar Lemongrass Soup with Coconut Sorbet Black Olive Cake with Basil Ice Cream There is a different menu from a different date but I cant find it the food was truly amazing They had a wine diner there last week I think, anyone go

    I had a tasting menu here a few months a go that was amazing I'll try to look up my notes and post the menu, i wish i took pix the food was beautiful to lookat and wonderful to eat
  13. I'm not sure if its one of the best restaurants in NJ, but on food alone its some of the best food i have had anywhere
  14. The Meal i had here a few weeks a go was among the best I have had anywhere including 9 Michelin 3 star restaurants in Europe last fall Jean-Georges is operating at very high standerts right now. it would be a shame if he did not get 4 stars.

    Michael, I have eaten 10-12 or maybe 15 times at babbo, not once have i ate anything that i said "this was great" i have not been there in about 2 years to me it is not any better or worse then it was.
  16. The meal i had at Commerc24 this past Sep, was some of the most flavorful and well prepared food i had through out my Spain/France trip out of the 24 plates only one had a component that did not work for me in comparison out of the 36 items i had at el Bulli only 6-7 worked Cinc Sentits was good,nothing wrong with the meal just not as exiting for me

    Per Se

    How is it possible for someone to have an opinion and write so many posts on Per Se without eating there.

    Sorry. Had to close monday. My sister went into labor, and there were no reservations for that evening. Tuesday we were open. If the machine picked up, someone will probably return your call early today. to confrim your reservation. ← Well thats not bad, i thought maybe you folded in, which wouild be a shame.

    I tought sous vide was a very old technique I was in Spain and France this past Sep. A lot of restaurants are doing a lot of modern cooking with traditional methods. I'm not sure if using a machine makes one cutting edge
