It's a lightly breaded fried chicken filet served with a salad. Simple but good.

The lughetti is hand cut spaghetti with blood sausage and a bit of grape and parmigiano in the sauce. Very unusual but I thought it was delicious. Lincoln is one of my favorite restaurants in part because the chef introduces new dishes on a regular basis.

Boulud Sud has a Mediterranean emphasis so it's not really comparable to DBGB. Higher price point too.

looking for a very romantic restaurant, intimate with not a lot of action?

Try the Leopard at des Artistes or Mas La Grillade.

What's the best sushi restaurant I can actually get into?

You could get on the waitlist for Sushi Nakazawa. You might get lucky with a cancellation, which happened to me though unfortunately it was too late to change my plans.

Sounds great. I hope they'll open their Manhattan location soon. I wonder if they're related to the "Baked by Melissa" mini-cupcakes.
