    i went to new york a couple of weeks ago on a vacation and tryed quiet a thew restaurant and i would really like to know what the fuss wd 50 is about? i thaught th service was average ,the food was ok but i dont rate it that much. the only "working" dish was the scallops ,th foie gras with anchovies just didnt do it,all i could get was the tate of vinegary anchovy, then eventually the foie gras ,it was impossible to get any bread to go with it. i could go on about th main courses but my bad experience wont do any good. if you want my advice and enjoy real flavours and no trendy powders ,pr
