Hello knowledgeable Hounds!
At last I get to return to NYC and have a reservation at Le Bernadin. I've been to many of NYC's best but not yet had the privilege. Which of the menus do you recommend? Are there any dishes that I really should not miss? Are pairings worth the $100 supplement?
Also, depending on train schedules I may have a chance to get two lunches. Looking for interesting suggestions. I was thinking I might try to go back to Eleven Madison, because I love it, but two enormous gastronomical fests on the same day may be a bit much. Area of the city is flexible, but at least one lunch should be in striking distance of Lincoln Center if possible.
