I've attached below the earlier thread discussing a long-time favorite, Zuni. I estimate I have been there 5 times a year for the past 3 years. I always take out of town guests there for a leisurely lunch, or a late, long dinner. I agree with thread below that it's not the place for a stopwatch-driven pre-performance meal (Citizen Cake is great for that, btw). But as one 'hound opines, it's one of the most consistent restaurants. I've never had miss there -- today my friend and I had the arugula/prossciuto/asiago pizza-- it was tops. My sister cannot come to town without us having the roast chicken with bread salad for two. Today's service was impeccable -- and we were seated in the cafe area because the restaurant was so crowded! Not one beat skipped in the service -- rapid, understanding, attentive without a hint of obsequiousness. I hope others can appreciate this great restaurant for what it is. I won't go on and on about the great oysters -- it's covered in this thread. YUM.
