      "insanely expensive" is nearly an understatement. How does $300 a head sound? That's what the tab came to last time I was there. There was a lot of Vodka consumed but, c'mon!

        Yep. Last time I was there, Lespinasse was still open, and I calculated that - if you included sides - Sammy's most expensive entree prices overlapped Lespinasse's cheapest. And for those with short memories, Lespinasse was Gray Kunz's four star palace at the St Regis.

        The comedian, I presume, writes the menu.

        What? The comedian wasn't enough for you?

          You took the words right out of my mouth, chow gal!

          1. You will not read a lot of good chowhoundish things about Sammy's on this board. Bad food (except chopped liver) and overpriced.

            1. I love Sammy's! Just not for the food...

              1. The place is vile and disgusting , seriously.

                I would never darken the doorway here again.
