My trip to your great city draws near, and I'm hoping someone can recommend a place to get Steak Tartare. I know this has come up recently, but I dont know where a lot of the places I have seen mentioned are. We are staying at Hotel 31, and I would like to find a place nearby, but any place between the mid-40s and the Village (east or west) is do-able. Tableside prep would be nice but is not at all necessary.
I saw on Menupages that Artisinal has this on the menu, and we are likely to be going there for dinner. Has anyone had it there recently? The last reference I could find on this board is several years old.
And if anyone can point me towards the best wine merchant in the area, I'd really appreciate it.
