Thanks all for your suggestions for a great "one restaurant" for a bunch of NY colleagues visiting.
We couldnt get into BCW, but went to Joe Fortes for dinner last night - it was good.
(For lunch, went to Cardero's - exactly what we needed for lunch - also good).
Now I'm on the hook for a fantastic Indian for one night and a fantastic Asian for another night.
Challenge is that we need to find reservations (Had been recommended Vij's, but unfortunately can't take the risk and just wait for a table since they don't take reservations).
What do you local experts recommend? (we're staying near harborfront)
