Okay, well I guess the title pretty much says it all, but let me just go through a few of the specifics.
I've got a friend of my pop's who's new to New York City, but because he's a customer of my Dad's, the company's paying for the meal. Now, I am usual limited to my college student radar of restaurants with 20-dollar entree ceiling. Thus I have determined that I am not fit to judge in this situation. My pop's friend says his favorite food in the world is Lasagna. He's a real down-to-earth guy so the place need not be fancy. All it has to be is ridiculously good. Anywhere in Manhattan is good. Babbo is probably out of the question because we wouldn't be able to get seats.
I throw myself on the mercy of the Chows. Help me find the best possible Italian restaurant for tomorrow, preferably with Lasagna. In thanks, Gratitude and amusing stories will be given in turn.
