I love best of lists, so here's one (more to come) for best martini in the city.
Though I just posted a thread about value for money, this thread will seem contradictory... because my vote for best martini is:
Peach fig at Avenues at the Four Seasons. Unfortunately, it's $18! But those babies go down soooooo damn smooth! So for this thread, money is no object. TIP FOR THE GUYS: if you're going on a SECOND date, and you think you might want a third, martinis at Avenues is a great bet. It worked for me!!!
