has anyone picked up a copy of this book yet? i got mine at a book release party on thursday at mind puddles. i spent 3 hours reading it today and was interested to see if anyone else has any impressions or comments about the reviews and ratings.

this is their top 10 most delicious list:
1. da marco
2. tony's
3. vic and anthony's
4. 17
5. himalaya
6. nippon
7. udipi cafe
8. indika
9. le mistral
10. reef

i am delighted that himalaya and le mistral made this list. but confused with nippon making tops. i haven't been there in a couple years and even then went there mostly out of convenience. reef is good but i wouldn't consider it close to being in my top 10.

however, i am shocked and appauled at the following ratings:
-- mark's B-
-- chez nous D-
-- striphouse C- and pappas bros. steakhouse C+ (BUT mortons B, ruth chris's B+, taste of texas C)
-- goode co. BBQ C-
-- tampico seafood C+: "Whole fish, whether grilled or fried, is more of a letdown..."
