    Konashitei, in Kiyosato Japan. They have this whole crispy little fish, which I think is fresh caught. Sort of resembles a perch, anyhow, its delicious. If you click on the picture of the food on the main page, you'll see their dishes. Everything in the bottom tray picture is delicious. My grandparents know the people who run this place, as they "summer" right up the road. They gave me a bottle of Sake on my birthday, and it was also delicious. In Tokyo proper, Maisen. Home of the best Hirekatsu Teishoku ever. In Seattle, Coastal Kitchen, and Red Mill Burgers.

    Not that I don't mind their food or that it's a neighborhood tradition, but the fact that Dora has a better 'stache than I do has always just freaked me up. I'll stick to my bbq shredded chicken, goat cheese, and spinach quesadilla @ Mustard Seed's until she shaves.

    Found out last night Madonna has discovered the cat restaurant. [​IMG] [​IMG] Much disappointment. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Is it very much an Anglo-styled locale?

    Hey man, we all have our priorities. But those Yucatan tamales on Saturdays are awesome.

    +1 for Golden Century.

    The seafood is first rate.

    At times, the queue outside the place is long enough to fit into another restaurant.

    Fattie's Restaurant, Negril, Jamaica. No menu, you get what she's cooking that day. Served family style, a whole fish dinner of Snapper, rice and peas and salad is about $5US. There are only 3 tables in the restaurant.

    Simple but devine, the way it should be.

    MOUNT OLYMPUS
    Home of the Olympian Gods

    Olympus was the residence of the divine family, the twelve most important ruling gods and goddesses of ancient Greece, who therefore were called the Olympians. There they all lived together in an enormous palace, high above the clouds. Olympus is generally identified with Mount Olympus in Thessaly, which is the highest mountain in Greece, but very often it is identified also as some mysterious region far above the earth.

    It is written that Zeus talks to the gods from "the topmost peak of many-ridged Olympus," and only a little later he says that if he willed he could hang the earth and sea from a pinnacle of Olympus, clearly not a mountain. In either case, Olympus is not the equivalent of heaven. According to the writer Homer, Poseidon says that he rules the sea, Hades the dead, Zeus the heavens, but Olympus is common to all three.

    FOOD:
    In its great halls they feasted on ambrosia and nectar and were entertained by Apollo’s lyre, the Graces and the Muses.

    Nectar was a sweet drink made from fermented honey, and ambrosia was said to be an uncooked mixture of honey, water, fruit, olive oil, cheese and barley.

    Oh I love Alinea, too. I'm not sentimental enough about it to make it my favourite, though.

    My tastes seem to be incredibly pedestrian compared to most of you. I'd have to divide my favorites up into the areas in which I spend the most time:

    D.C.: Citronelle, Firefly, Sushi-Ko

    Hunt Country Virginia: Four and Twenty Blackbirds, The Inn at Little Washington, Sucilee's

    N.Y.C.: Peter Luger, Una Pizza Napoletana, WD-50

    Hands down the most consistent, wonderful and tastey food I have ever had. Bruce Moffett is a CIA trained chef, and his small restaurant is Zagat's Top Rated '03,'04, & '05. Business or pleasure, we return here for every occasion when gourmet food is the first priority.

    My worst and most expensive meal was at Citronelle. They had a scallop ceviche appetizer. It was the most foul thing I ever tasted. The dining room is nothing special and the food was not transcendent. Have wanted to try Inn at Little Washington. WD-50: Tried to get a group of co-workers to go to, but they are not adventurous. I will try your others when I go back to NYC.
