I live in Westchester but would definitely be willing to travel into the city. I'm craving a few things, but really don't want to spend $100 on dinner. Wouldn't mind spending $50-60 though. Here's a list of things I've been missing, can you chowhounds give me some suggestions where I can find the best of these?
Moussaka - my mother's is the best I've had
Osso Bucco - see above
Sauerbraten - see above
Brisket - don't tell me Dinosaur BBQ I had theirs and it is terrible
Shepherd's Pie - with lamb, not the fake one with beef
Coq au Vin - my father actually made one with reisling instead of a red and it was the best I've tasted. If anyone knows of a place that makes it this way, please let me know.
Chili - this has been posted to death on CH, but seriously, everywhere has blah chili, where can I get some serious chili?
Thanks in advance
