Wife is obsessed with it. We ordered twice again since I posted this.

Have you guys tried the new John Dory? It is quite a fun place, particularly given the location. Tonight I had the chorizo stuffed squid, parker roll and pan fried oysters with uni. The Timeout after party was just starting as we were about to leave.

The only two that immediately come to mind are the SF institutions: Andalu and Cha Cha Cha.

I'd never go to either one on the weekend due to the crowds but a weekday should be ok. Had a weeknight dinner at Andalu ~1.5 years ago but haven't been to Cha3 in a loooooooong time; so I don't know how good they are right now.

Thanks, binge. I'll check one out.

I know it's trendy right now with all the new small ramen places opening up in SF, and I've tried a few... but my favorite ramen spot in the bay area is in the San Jose area. Oddly enough it's connected to a Japanese supermarket (Mitsuwa), but don't be fooled by the location.

Of course, if you're not limiting yourself to just ramen there are plenty of other places to consider.

Have any of you been to Rouge Tomate in Manhattan? If so, would you recommend it?

Quoted for posterity. I went to Wolfgang's (Tribeca) last night for a work related function. It was a weekday night and somewhat slow. The experience was superior to a recent meal at Peter Luger. The steak was pretty equivalent in quality, though the sides were better at Wolfgang's.

went to TAC Quick or whatever it is... the Thai place at Sheridan.

I must say, very impressive. Without a doubt, the best "asian" I've had in Chicago. Will be going once a week for the next month or so to try the full menu.

Maybe I'm a huge whitey, but I was very, very impressed. The bill was shockingly low as well, with 5 or so rather sumptuous dishes.

I've got a few hours to burn in Las Vegas next Friday night while waiting for the rest of a bachleor party. L'Atelier Joel Robuchon maybe? Was also considering something in the Cosmo...but Joel Robuchon looked good since they are a bar-like seating. Fly in around 6pm, drop off bags at bellhop and maybe eat at 730ish. Might do something like STK or something where I can socialize while eating and drinking though. I don't want to have to be weird and stare at the wall while dining (don't want to be on my phone eating and waiting for courses either). Will be having the "big dinner" over at Del Friscos the next night....how is it? Any recommendations in particular? Probably going bone in ribeye and creamed spinach.

I just had one of the best dinners of my life at Sage - L'atellier is fantastic and you won't be disappointed by any stretch if you go there. I've also eaten at the bar at Nob Hill and enjoyed myself... the food is adequate and the bar atmosphere there is good. Del Frisco's is a good steakhouse. You know what to expect; they're not doing anything special, but they won't fuck up your steak like Craftsteak (sorry, I really hated that place).
