I recommended Hammersley's Bistro to Mina & Dino. Please recommend a few others, especially for fresh seafood. I've also encouraged them to take some time to enjoy their first visit to the city, so anything you could advise them would be great. I'm not sure how the experience will compare to Steed, but I think you'll be pleased nonetheless.
Just opened: Island Creek Oyster Bar.. Great place run by a strong team.
I was shocked as well. I figured he was in for at least a dozen.
We'll see how it goes. I'm optimistic. I got Ed Morel celebrity scheduling, like buying the empty seat next to you on a plane to ensure zero chance that two annoying people are seated together.
