Best Dishes 2014

Yes, Sapphire near Columbus Circle. I usually get their vegetarian or seafood dishes, and the garlic naan which is so addicting. The lunch buffet is also great. I haven't tried their chicken or meat entrees yet. Very reasonable prices.

Best Dishes 2013

You can have it solo but you'll have to take home leftovers (not a bad thing). The dish big enough for three people.

Did you know ...

Is the risotto with truffles an off the menu item that's only available upon request? I didn't see it on the website and I think white truffles are still in season.

Saturday night in / near the Financial District

All good choices. If any of them are too crowded try Cercle Rouge or Odeon.

Best lemon meringue pie?

Ed's Chowder House has a great lemon meringue pie though I'm not sure if it's available to go. Might be worth inquiring though.

Groupon Reserve

Groupon just launched an online discount reservations system, similar to Savored but without any pre-purchase requirement. The participating restaurants include Aquavit, Picholine, DB Bistro Moderne, and The Leopard at des Artistes.
