    +1 on the katz bro. My grandad has been taking me there since I was about 10!!

    Its amazing to spend nearly 20 bucks on a pastrami sandwich but it is what it is!

    My favorite is the "moochers" that eat about a pound of meat while waiting for their sandwich to be made.

    Pastis is fun since my boy works there so I got like free drinks and food basically. But Balthazar is actually better food. I haven't even been to 90% of those places nor heard of them. Gotta start checking shit out.

    I hit up Lombardis (sp?) in August as well. Definitely great pizza. I ate all over Manhattan, but I don't think I ate at any others you listed.

    Yeah I've checked that out. I've really been wanting to go to Momofuku, at least the Noodle bar if not the other two, but just haven't got around to doing it. Jean Gorges is a bit expensive for me with drinks included. But the Doughnut Plant and La Maison du Chocolat-----epic beyond epic. The hot chocolate at LMDC is just sinful.

    Quite an adventure, thanks for sharing!


    So you liked Lombardi's? It's definitely good, and although I found the sauce to be a little sweet, I would certainly esteem it in the company of Grimaldi's in Brooklyn and the pizza titans here in CT.

    Balthazar is it for me for reasonably priced bistro food; I've tried others and was not impressed either by the food or the price. Did you get a chance to try Pommes Frites on 2nd Ave?

    Those dumplings look really good too, there is a phenomenal hole-in-the-wall restaurant place in Chinatown called Moon House that has incredible soup dumplings.

    Also, did you get to go to Chelsea Market? There you will find one of both Chuck and my simplest pleasures; phenomenal chocolate milk from Ronnybrook Dairy.

    oh yeah - absolutely recomended.

    ashok, Jean Georges is expensive for dinner; but lunch is the most ridiculous bargain ever - $25 for 3 courses, and $12 for every course after that. FOR THE EXACT SAME FOOD! take a girl there one day - best $25 you'll spend.

    If you want a real pizza, hop on the ferry and head to Hoboken. Stop in at Benny Tudino's on Washington. You will NOT regret it.

    Overnight me a pie while you're at it, will ya?
