A couple head scratchers right off the bat...
1) Best service - Travail - Look, I love this place as much as anyone but when they get slammed, the whole chef/server thing really hampers the flow. The interaction is great and the guys are all a blast to talk to, but they inevitably get bogged down.
2) Best deli - Be'Wiched - I'm not saying this isn't the best deli in town (I've still never been), but regarding their cured meats, CP says Be'Wiched "can still compete, bite for bite, with any of the country's most noteworthy: Katz's in New York, Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, the Refuge in San Carlos." Something tells me that isn't the case.
I'd like any thoughts on this list, seeing as I haven't been to the VAST majority of restos listed.
