One Day, One Restaurant Empire

Trenchermen and women of Manhattan:

If you could eat in all the restaurants of one top NYC restaurateur in a day who would it be? Meyer, Nieporent, Vongerichten, Boulud, Batali, McNally, Hanson? Assume budget and appetite are not limiting factors.

      David, David, Danny, Daniel or Drew: It seems the D's have it. Let's say you could bring the owner along. I'd go Chang or Batali if I could get a pass on the hangover and food coma, Bouley or Meyer if I couldn't. Of course, let's not forget Zarela and Lidia while we're talking of restaurant emperors and empresses.

    2. Oooh, Batali. I love that fat bastard.
