We had dinner at Eleven Madison Park with some friends from the west coast last night. Out on a pre-dinner stroll we passed quite a few places overlfowing with diners-to-be spilling out the doors.
My friend Paul, a true hound, commented that nyc dining is much like frisco and LA. A night without reservations is a night waiting in a long line to eat. He then asked what it was like by me in NJ.
I had told him of Nicolas and Le Fandy ( where we will all be dining this evening ), but I had a hard time thinking of any places with quality food that had "lines out the door". In fact, the only places I could think of like that were chains like Outback and Fridays.
Help me out here. Am i right or am i missing something?
btw - EMP in the city was a wonderful meal. It's so nice when a place lives up to the hype.
