Best Dishes 2014

Yes definitely. These Best Dishes discussions have been going on since 2012. I'd be curious about the Best Dishes in other boroughs and cities.

Who do you follow on the Manhattan Board?

This is a perfectly legitimate question. It's all public info anyway - just scroll down a user's profile to see who is following him or her. The posts on this thread have been respectful and quite informative.

best fine dining in New York?

A friend of mine used to fly to Las Vegas just to dine at Guy Savoy and Joel Robuchon. If you have the time, energy and resources to do both EMP and Alinea then by all means go for it.

single diner

All restaurants in NYC are single diner friendly. Do you have a budget or cuisine preference?

Desserts

Empellon Cocina now offers a 5 course dessert tasting menu for $45, available from 9:30 pm until closing.

I believe that Chef Alex Stupak used to be the pastry chef at WD-50 so this new dessert tasting should be very good.

Fish Tacos - can use a recommendation

I liked the fish tempura taco with cabbage and lime mayo at Empellon Taqueria. Also try the smoked cashew sauce that comes with the guac - truly outstanding.

lunch with boss

Bouley, while good, certainly won't wow anyone who spends a lot of time in France.

Lunch at EMP would take longer than 2 hours.

I would recommend The Modern Dining Room. The new chef Abram Bissell previously worked at The NoMad.

French restaurants

The Modern has a new chef from The NoMad. The menu has changed and now seems more American than French.

Best Theatre District Restaurants

I went to Danji a bit before 6:00 pm recently and immediately got a seat at the bar where they serve the full menu. I went to Ippudo Westside at 6:45 a few weeks ago and the wait was only 15-20 minutes. It's a large space with a second floor.

The waits at Ippudo and Danji are not long at all for pretheater meals at 6:00 pm. About 15 minutes in my experience.

Jean Georges and Le Bernardin for Lunch

The service in the lounge is every bit as good as the service in the dining room. If this is your first time at Le Bernardin I would suggest skipping the City Harvest menu and ordering from the regular menu instead so that you can sample some of the restaurant's signature dishes as mentioned in the New York Times reviews.
