Top 5 Most Overrated in Manhattan

I would add Artichoke Basilles pizza to the tippity top of this list. It is constantly getting written up for being delicious and it was one of the worst pizza eating experiences of my life. A greasy, overcooked crust that lacerated the roof of my mouth, topped off with what tasted like scalding hot, bad cream of broccoli soup. It's been over a year since I had it and everytime i walk by I still get mad.

DeStefano's in Willamsburg

it's delicious. The veal chop is the best I've had and the filet is fantastic. The restaurant has a very family run, at home feel. You feel like you're eating at a family member's house, not at a restaurant. It is pricey, but no pricier than a quality steak house, and it is well worth the money. It's definitely not a "chic/Williamsburg" place, but feels more like a family restaurant that's been there forever.

I have FOUR hours in Paris? Fabulous lunch recommendation?

Thanks for the recommendations thus far. Just to be clear...we actually have a TEN hour layover in Paris, so with transportation and getting in and out of the airport, we've figured we have about four hours to dine. That being said...any recommendations?

I have a layover in Paris and will have about four hours free. We are looking for a restaurant to have a fabulous lunch. Any price range will do!
P.S. It would be my first time in Paris (short trip! hopefully not my last!) so I am just looking to make the most out of an extremely short excursion. reiterate..if you had four hours to eat in Paris, where would you go?
Recommendations thus far have been Le Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower or Georges at the Pompidou center. thoughts?
