I'll agree on the Peter Luger's thing. The restaurant isn't all that, decor-wise, but the steak is the best I have ever had. Hands down, no question. People say its hard to believe, but don't knock it til you have tried it. There is a reason it has been the top steakhouse in NYC for 20+ years.

where's albano's? i have to disagree on canter's. i've been there a few times because at 2am there's just not much else in that neighborhood. however, everytime i go there i walk out saying, "never again." damiano, across the street from canter's, used to be my favorite pizza, but lately the sauce doesn't have enough flavor and they always burn the slices. maybe they're burning them on purpose but they didn't used to.

New Orleans. Arnauds is good, they have a selection of what I would consider to be traditional New Orleans food. My favorite place was Victor's in the Ritz Carlton. They have changed their menu and I don't really like it that much now. The French Quarter Bar in the Ritz Carlton is a fun place to eat at night especially when Jeremy Davenport is playing. I want to try Galatoire's next as I have never been there.

I had some great oysters in NO, also, it's a great place for beignets and coffee, perhaps after some hurricanes Wahoos is a great place for lunch in SoCal, btw.

Forgot one great New Orleans retaurant, at least my fav. Mulate's Cajun Restaurant, a bit of a dump outside, but damn the food is great, order the beer in a bucket, and get some catfish cajun style, and I hate catfish.

A couple other restaurants I've eaten at in my youth. Hyman's, in Charleston, SC Leverocks, in Clearwater, FL. Both of these had pretty good seafood.

Albano's Really? What'd you have at canters? I typically won't deviate from the Ruben, Pastrami, or Matsa Ball soup. LOL, I noticed the same at damiano.

Stripes in Hilton Head, unbelievable steak, and the rest of the food is totally killer. Never know what celebrity you will bump inot, only because unless you are from there, most people either do not know about it, or can't find it.

Big Apple--- Japanese: Tomoe, Blue Ribbon Sushi (for sushi) Menchanko-Te (for ramen) Honmura-An (for Soba) Korean: Han-Bat, Gameeok Chinese: Grand Sichuan, Joe's Shanghai, and a ton of other places down in C-town that I can't remember the names of, haha. Italian: Marinella, San Domenico, Il Mulino, Babbo Joe's, Patsy's (pizza) French: Daniel Steakhouse: Peter Luger, Spark's Kansas City--- The holy trinity of BBQ there is: Gates, KC Masterpiece, and Arthur Bryant's. I prefer Arthur Bryant's, and a less well-known place, Fiorello's. koji

Few asian restaurant recommendations for LA area: Traditional Sit-down: Fu-shing, in Pasadena neat Colorado, Szechwan style, great Peking duck and other classics. Dim-Sum: Sam Woo's in San Gabriel Square is a good place for an inexpensive and authentic dim-sum. Full House Dim-Sum restaurant is a great place for dim-sum in the morning, it's at the intersection of Golden West and Naomi in the plaza with Ranch 99. Probably the best dim-sum restaurant in the LA area in my opinion is Sea Harbour restaurant on Rosemead and Valley. Quite expensive, but has nice delicacies such as shark fin and lobster dumplings, etc.

I second Il Mulino, ate there in September (I am in Boca after all, don't get many chances to go to NYC) and it was for lack of a better word: perfect. Jon.

Having scanned the now-long thread, I didn't see Phoenix, AZ mentioned, so here are a few ideas: http://members.cox.net/~shoehorn/restaurants.htm I wrote this for a friend's website about a year and a half ago, but even in Phoenix things don't change that fast. Apologies if Phoenix has already been covered. Regards, Tony

Sichuan restaurant serving Peking duck?  Hmmmm

Actually they do serve several varieties of duck, the Peking isn't their best (as they are a Szechwan restaurant) but they have a couple szechwan styles that are interesting (smoked and then roasted) but I figured since it was served in the Peking duck style, that would be the best way to describe it (I also don't know the english name for it)

Ahhh. Yeah - I've seen it called Tea Smoked Duck or Camphor Smoked Duck. Either way, deeeeeelicious.
