Which restaurant rating?

"And you learn, over time, which critics / bloggers / commenters you find yourself agreeing with more often than not."

So I'm curious - which bloggers are worth reading? I'm only aware of LauHound and The Ulterior Epicure.

Blue Hill Gift Certificate

Blue Hill Gift certificates are not transferable or redeemable for cash.

Whoever gave it to you probably knew that you and your husband aren't foodies and therefore chose a farm-to-table restaurant. I'd recommend just going with gratitude and an open mind and ordering the simplest items on the menu.

best fine dining in New York?

While I like EMP I would not consider it the best restaurant in New York. The S. Pellegrino rankings should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism. For me Per Se was a more memorable experience than either Alinea or EMP.

Best desserts in NYC

Del Posto has the best desserts among the Michelin 3 star restaurants. I also like the desserts at the Modern bar room, Benoit and Lincoln.
