The best place you have eaten in the past 4 weeks in Manhattan.

  1. Telepan - as if they weren't good enough already they must have had a really "on" night this past Saturday 'cause it was spot on.

    1. Public. I was surprised how good it was! (I wrote a review last week).

      1. Telepan for me too. We both had the 4 course prix fixe and it was delicious. Too much food, our eyes were bigger than our stomaches. But we doggie bagged our entrees so we could finish dessert and happily ate everything the next morning. Still delicious. Wonderful unobstrusive service too where the tables are properly spaced apart.

          What dessert did you have? I had the apple upside down brioche which was a really nice way to finish the meal BUT my girlfriend had the port custard and fig dish and it was insanely good. If we didn't need to get somewhere I swear I would have ordered another.

            I am trying to talk my mate into trying Telepan once again. He was underwhelmed the first time with that "bread soup."
            It has a fine reputation.
            I know this isn't what you meant but we had one fine lunch at Le Pain Quotidien last Tuesday. It just felt "healthy."
            I am hoping to love Blue Hill where we were lucky to finally grab a reservation for Sunday evening.

              We also had the fig dish and it was fantastic, unfortunately the berry tart was not. I would say that was the worst item of our entire meal. Wish we had ordered two fig desserts but who knew and I love to share.

                they have some peanut butter chocolate dessert thats pretty amazing. i enjoyed my entire meal there. best foie gras ive had in awhile.

          2. Lupa, Vermicelli alla Carbonara. A great simple dish.

            1. Persepolis on 2nd between 74th and 75th. My friend and I ordered a bunch of apps and everything was delicious! We could barely walk when we left.
