    Kenka is probably the best Japanese and also one of the weirdest restaurants I have ever been to.

    Maybe I just have different taste, I have not found a single good szechuan restaurant in NYC, a few mentioned (including the ones I mentioned) are passable to ok, but non are good or remotely close to great.

    NYC is a little rough when it comes to Chinese food, but there is some passable stuff. Apparently the "great" stuff is out in Flushing, but nobody wants to travel to Flushing.


    where NYC is really hurting is with Mexican food.

    Paris has awesome Chinese food.


    Kind of sick of hearing New Yorkers (especially ones who are from the south originally) hating on mexican food. Honestly the difference between the best I have had and the worst isn't that large. I will say the best I have had is Mesa Coyacan in Williamsburg and I still never go out of my way for it.

    Flushing has decent Cantonese, not other Chinese cuisine though.

    The cuisine, in general, I don't go out of my way for. It just gives me an immediate negative physical reaction. It is also caloric as hell.

    Banksy setup a booth in NYC over the weekend selling authentic, original signed Banksy canvases for $60. Only 3 people bought any. The pieces were valued at tens of thousands of dollars, I saw $200,000 being thrown around on other sites for the whole collection that was there.
