Now that Del Posto's is $39 for lunch...

      Seasonal feels like such a value. each dish is really carefully put together and the desserts never feel like an afterthought. the apple strudel is amazing, but there's a pear option now that's worth trying.

    2. Le Bernardin's City Harvest Lunch--$45, with $5 donated to City Harvest
      Jean Georges--$38 for two courses.
      SHO Shaun Hergatt--$27 (2 courses), $33 (3 courses)

      I propose it's a bit hard to compare based solely upon the number of courses, because each restaurant has a different number of amuses/giveaways/petits fours. I've got to say I walked away from lunch the most full at Jean Georges, but that may only be because we shared a third plate at Del Posto (in the $29 lunch era). It seemed as if there was a steady flow of freebies from the kitchen at JG. Also, SHO is very generous with amuses/giveaways.
