      1. Three choices (in no particular order): Momofuku Ko, Bouley, and Eleven Madison Park.

        BTW, you shouldn't use all caps when you post since it looks like you're shouting.

          Tks, first time posting. Did not mean to shout. I appreciate the input.

        2. I would pick Kyo Ya. I have not had kaiseki style food anywhere in the US. LA and SanFrancisco did not even come close to the quality at Kyo Ya. For other style food, I think you can find comparable in other cities. IMHO the French Laundry is the best I've had in the US.

            I appreciate your input. Kyo Ya sounds very interesting. The French Laundry has been on my list a long time. I use to live in Santa Rosa, Ca.

              Do you think Kyo Ya is better than Urasawa?

                uwsister, I have never been to Urasawa, sorry. But Kyo Ya is fantastic so I keep going back

                  EMP is awesome but you MUST book at 9am Eastern EXACTLY 28 days in advance. If you're even an hour or two late, the date you want will be fully booked up by other people.

                  Try using OpenTable; their reservations desk has told me they are getting lots of customers who only get busy signals when they call.

                    Thanks Kathryn, I appreciate that.! I'll plane accordingly.
