Any one eaten at Ai Fiori yet?

So... Did Michael White hit the big time here or is it a different story than, perhaps, Marea?

Is Corton really as good as it looks?

Paul Liebrandt seems like a genius in the kitchen, does the food live up to the hype?

Gift Certificate Recs ($250)

You're right. EMP would be a great gift!

Where to go from the Union Square Hospitality Group?

Definitely go for Eleven Madison Park. Chef Humm is certainly one of NYC's brightest young chefs. His food is experimental, yet sticks to the classical French tradition in an unpretentious way. Going here would make a fun and adventurous dining experience.

Best place for dinner in Columbus, Ohio?

Been to Rigsby's and have never been disappointed. First off, the service is fantastic. It is a wonderful balance between formal and friendly, which is pleasently suprising in a restaurant. The refined Northern Italian is consistently good, but what sets this restaurant apart on a gastronomic level are its specials. The in season dishes can range from day boat fish to organic, free range meat, an occuring theme at this restaurant with an apparent care for sourcing high quality ingredients.

Hopefully this can help.

Lupa, Barbuto or Something Else

Heading to NYC soon and would like to try Lupa or Barbuto. What do you guys think about those choices and are there other restaurants that you would recommend?

Ramen in NYC

"Greenmarket" driven ramen refers to the fact that their noodles are not traditional ramen, but contain many fresh vegetables and local ingredients, adding up to a tasty, albeit non-traditional, ramen soup.

Sushi in the Meatpacking District or Village

I would have to say Soto is the best Sushi restaurant in the areas you are looking at hands down.

Ramen in NYC

I am heading to NYC and a traveling companion really wants a good bowl of ramen. I've found Rai Rai Ken, Ramen Setagaya, Ippudo and others. The question is pretty simple, what is the best ramen in NYC?

FYI- I have already been to Momofuku Noodle Bar and have noticed that there menu is leaning more towards prix fixe rather than their "Greenmarket" driven noodles.

Tasting Menu - One Night Only

Daniel, for French, or Le Bernardin, for seafood, are good choices. If you really feel like going all out, head to Time Warner Center and try the other three Michelin Starred restaurant in the building, Masa.

Good Luck!

What about Kefi restaurant?

Heading to the city in a few days and want to try Michael Psilakis' casual Greek-Med restaurant. What do you guys think about that choice?

FYI- I did not choose this restaurant because of its Greek influences, if anyone has other ideas, please keep Greek tavernas out of the conversation

Thanks

What are some restaurants that emphasize local and seasonal ingredients, but are less expensive than the likes of Blue Hill, Dovetail and Mas (farmhouse)

Thanks for opening my eyes to Market Table, I had never heard of it.

Birthday Dinner with Friends- Wine Bar

I reccommend Degustation restaurant and wine bar. It is also very reasonably priced.

"Must dos" for a weekend in Manhattan

If you guys are talking about great bagel places, I would throw Murray's Bagels into the mix. About the original post, I would recommend Momofuku Ssam Bar for a true foodie experience.

Hey,

I am coming to NYC soon and have been looking up places to go. On our "planned list", there is Momofuku Ssam Bar, Kefi and Rai Rai Ken for the ramen fix. Along with trying to find a resonably priced restaurant the stresses local ingredients, I am also trying to decide whether to eat at Lupa or Barbuto. Also, if anyone objects to the restaurants listed, tell me and then state some reasons for your dissatisfaction with those eateries.

Thanks
