Jean Georges still amazing

Their foie gras brulee is the best foie gras dish I've had in NYC. Can't wait to go back to do the tasting menu.

Where can I find really good ratatouille?

I found that Parigot (a low-key french restaurant near soho) has this dish... anyone know of anywhere else?

Hello fellow foodies,

I'm looking for a place that serves good ratatouille.. particularly if its ratatouille served with fish or lean protein..

thanks!

Critique my plan (mostly Manhattan)

If you go to Ippudo order the Akumaru Modern Ramen.. it's what they're famous for.

Great NY Pizza near Orpheum Theatre

Even though Motorino isn't ny-style pizza.. it is one of my favorite pizzerias in the city.

best pasta in nyc?

Hearth's pasta dishes are very strong. Their ragu is amazing and a lot of chowhounders love their gnocchi.

Current views on Per Se?

I went to Per Se in 2007 and my meal was perfect.

I went back this January and was really disappointed. Only 3 out of the 9 courses were extraordinary.

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

Bouley's lunch tasting of 5 courses is only $55!!! A steal!!

Best Dishes 2014

Breads bakery's chocolate babka, when fresh from the oven, is pure heaven

I mean wow. Soooooooo good when you get it fresh hot from the oven. Foodie bliss. :). The only problem is that once it cools its not as good, so eat it straight from the oven!!!

Also no need to get there early for fresh babka.. They bake it fresh throughout the day

Per Se Salon question

My experiences are similar. Back in 2007 my meal at Per Se was perfect. I went back this year and it was all quite dull.
