I recently realized that I had a favorite restaurant--something that I've never had before. I'd had favorite meals, places I really liked, places I'd frequent, but nothing ever bubbled to the top as my favorite, to the point where I could say the word.
So IF you have one, and it's in Manhattan, post it here. No explanation, elaboration, or qualifications. This is a "moment in time" thing, and no one can assume it always has been your favorite or always will be. Just right now. No lists. Just one favorite restaurant, if you have it.
