...okay, I'm from New Orleans and spent most of four days in New York. I attended the following restaurants: Cafe Aux Bruxelles, Russian Tea Room, Miracle Grill, Pastis, Pho Viet Huong, La Nuit Noir [a basic pommes frites joint by Washington Square], and Markt. All of these were just great, but I think my best meal was at Cafe Aux Bruxelles - just terrific! Miracle Grill was also superior. Let me know what you think and some other places I should try the next time I'm downtown in a few months.
