It had a little funk, but did not detect any oxidation, and even if I didn't, I'm sure someone sitting at my table would have.

Going to check out Brooklyn Fare with a guy I met that works for Christie's. Promised me if I could get some ortolan this season I would drink some very special wines.

Cafe Boulud.

idk, what do you predict you'll be in the mood for?




FWIW, J-G is the best lunch value in NYC. Maybe J-G and Bouley.

bouley is a great deal but it is $75 and quite a long experience. JG is about half that, in terms of both time and money.

if i'm doing a DB restaurant for lunch, I'm doing either Boulud Sud or Bar Boulud.

bouley looks good but do they have bar seating or anything? from their website it looks like out might be hard to slip in there solo without a reservation ( my friends don't fly in until tomorrow night). maybe I will see what my hotel concierge can do.

not sure about a bouley bar but I don't think so.

Anyway, the whole point of going there is to get the whole experience for about 2/5 of what dinner costs. It is fabulous and a great value at $75 for what you get (a lot) but $75 for lunhc is still not for everyone and you will be there a while.

I'm willing to do that if I can get in (actually, their website says only 55 for the lunch but maybe I'm missing something).

Nobody likes the idea of le bernardin for lunch?
post #23606 of 25452
it's fine, food is superb and all, but the scene is very much crotchety old business people.
post #23607 of 25452
Bouley was nice at lunch.
post #23608 of 25452
Bouley is closed until after labor day frown.gif

I'll probably end up at one of DB's places then. Thanks for the help.

Is aquavit still any good? Back when they were in Minneapolis, they had fantastic Scandinavian food.

Getting a reservation at Bouley is not all that difficult. His heyday when it was impossible was like '87-'97 or so.

I like aquavit, are you sure it's the same one as in Minn? It's a Marcus Samuleson place. There is the main room and then a cafe which is quite cheap but still good.
