  1. Budget? Likes & dislikes? Are you sure you want both major lunches & dinners? What about breakfasts & dinners?

      Budget, flexible no issues. Open to suggestions on breakfast / brunch / lunch / or dinner. Would like to include 1 good steak dinner, currently have only a reservation for Prime. Any good?

      1. re: josephnl

        Any comments on Prime? Carnevino seems to be a favorite so I think I will switch to that

      2. Lunch: Fun, casual, tasty, different
        Dinner: Depth; service, unique

          Perhaps for some...I was simply questioning...many (including us) cannot do justice to both lunch and dinner. It has nothing to do with fun or casual or depth or unique! For some, it's just too much food to enjoy! Indeed thinking back over the years to my most spectacular meals, they were generally mid-day meals (I hate to say lunches) at wonderful Michelin starred restaurants in France...meals that lasted many hours. Dinner those evenings generally consisted of a small salad, or a piece of cheese or fruit, and perhaps a glass of wine or even just a Perrier. For me, if we're talking a big multi-course meal, one a day is all I can handle.

            Don't forget the fear and stress of being hit by champagne corks at those Michelin two starred places! :-)

              I always take a Xanax before, and have a welder's helmet in tow, just in case!

              I went to Akelarre (lunch) and Arzak (dinner) once on the same day in Spain and it was pretty much the death of me. Should not have gotten wine pairings at both too. I take that back, the wines were fantastic. But never again.

                That's too much goodness in one day.
