    Chuck I have yet to experience that Jean Georges lunch, actually, so I should hold my tongue before voicing my favoritism for Balthazar.

    I'm planning to go back in Jan/Feb, but with my own budget this time. Masa and JR will be on the agenda, there will be pics...

    It's crazy, it was packed on a Wednesday night at 9pm.

    Are you going to Doughnut Plant?
    Yes, the pudding bar is right across the road, and it's all a la carte. I didn't make it to Doughnut Plant, but then it gives me a reason (one of many) to go back.

    No, I actually did the noodles (which he advised against). But I got the pork belly in ramen, which was fabulous.

    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.
    I really wanted to try Grimaldi's. Just not enough time. Hole-in-the-wall places seem to be the only place to get decent Chinese food over there, the semi decent looking dim sum place I tried was terrible. Richmond, BC is still tops in North America (even the bay area can't compete). I didn't make it to Chelsea Market unfortunately; again, another reason for me to go back.

    Is it a NJ vs NY thing? I've also heard RI folks say their pizza is better. I'll add it to my list of things, I'm quite open to long trips for food. As for shipping you a pie, it'd be all soggy by now.

    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.

    Hmmm, I may just do that.
