I love shortribs, especially with this cold weather. Will all you chowhounds out there kindly let me know your favorite places to have this wonderful comfort dish. Thanks!

    For upscale, I really like Craft's shortribs, with the potatoes gratin.

    For something more casual, 5 Ninth does a tasty version with Asian inflections and croutons.

        The short ribs at Veritas are seriously delicious.

          I absolutely LOVE davidburke & donatella's - they are served over a small bed of cavatelli with wild mushrooms, topped with truffle mouse (if desired, at table), and sprinkled with porcini chips.

          I also really enjoyed cafe gray's and they are over these grits with a mustard based sauce.

            I've enjoyed Bone Lick Parks although it can be a bit too marbled for some.

                  Melba's restaurant in Harlem has braised short ribs that were as good as mom used to make. Tender, flavorful and a pleasant environment.

                    i have to say craft's shortribs were unbelievably fatty to me.

                          Strong agreement about the short ribs at david burke & donatella!

                            Balthazar does a very respectable rendition as a Saturday special.
