I just got my new 2007 issue last week. Here's the top 10 on basis of Food only:

Matushisa
Melisse
Nozawa
Leila's
Saddle Peak
Shiro
Nobu
Piccolo
Angelini
Katsuya

I know Zagat doesn't carry much weight around here. Any top 10 that doesn't include Spago (11) or Providence (17) is just plain wrong. I haven't been to all 10 but the inclusion of Katsuya sickens me. What do you think of the list?

  1. I place no value on the Zagat guide. Nobu? please, the food there is horrible. But you might get to see a celebrity if that's important.

    1. What city is the list for?

      1. re: MMRuth

        Looks like L.A.

      2. I used to buy Zagat for every city I worked as a traveling salesperson, until I figured out how badly their ratings correlated with mine in my own area, and now regard it as bad fiction. Some of the quotes are amazingly old...

        1. I is only useful for addresses, phone numbers and relative price. The ratings and comments are crap.

          1. How can they leave Urasawa out?

            1. Having Zagat is better than no ratings at all.
