    Cool thread, I'm glad it got revived, I'd never come across it.

    So, here it goes:

    NYC

    Sushi: - Blue Ribbon (yea, yea, I have to try Tomoe, but the lines scare me)
    Japanese (non-sushi:( Next Door Nobu - cheaper and no reservations accepted
    French: - eeh, my biggest secret, but anything for you guys! Jean-Claude in SoHo, amazing and inexpensive.
    Seafood: Aquagrill
    Brunch: Tartine, Odeon (forget Balthazar and Pastis, so fake)
    Crepes: Le Gamin, Palacinka
    Bar/Food: Bar89
    Breakfast: Kitchenette
    Sandwiches: 12 chairs in Soho
    Lunch: Duane Park Cafe (can't beat their $20 pri fixe)

    And if you are ever in Glasgow,

    GAMBA is the BEST restaurant I've ever been to in my life, PERIOD.

    San Antonio

    Paesanos: The most delicious Italian food- angel hair pasta with butter and garlic sauce :heart:

    Marios: Awesome Mexican food- hot sopapillas with brown sugar and warm caramel sauce is the best thing I've ever eaten.

    Pappasitos: more fantastic Mexican food

    Jims: The food is mostly mediocre- except for the tortilla soup, which could be mistaken for gourmet it's so good. Great diner atmosphere.

    Chipotle: I know they have these in Austin too- maybe all over the country? Huge burritos!

    San Antonio doesn't have that many great restaurants :unsure:

    Smolinski's in London is nice. I used to like sticky fingers, but I think its not there anymore. Anyone near High street Ken can tell me.

    It's not in my town but I love Matteo's of Howard Beach.....next to my grandmother, they have the most incredible Italian food.

    Also, Millie's Place in Great Neck was good, but they closed that location and I don't like the other one.

    I visited San Antonio a few years ago with my family. I can't remember the name of the Restraunt we ate at but it was very good.

    I couldn't believe how big Texan asparagus is! :o :wink:
