Favorite Restaurant of all time

Postby NorthSider2 » Mon Jun 30, 2008 2:46 pm

What is everyone's favorite restaurant?

I personally like Hickory House Ribs out in Colorado. Best ribs I have ever had.

Arthur Bryant's (although it is slightly over-rated) and The Golden Ox.

My wife and I every year go to a resort called Queen's Landing just for the restaurant. Their seared foie gras is amazing.

There's also also a Toronto restaurant called North 44 that's good. There was a famous chef Susur Lee who had a restaurant in Toronto called Susur but it just closed down and he's moved it to NY this year :-C

Ruth's is a ripoff IMO. I've had way better steak at much cheaper places. For the money you spend, they are not worth it.

My two answers are

None of the Above

and

Any Restaurant So I Don't Have to Cook


I cook a LOT, and I don't usually cook small meals because I expect good food, so it's a main dish and a sauce and a side dish and a spice combo and bread and blah blah blah blah BLAH. I like cooking, but there are times when I'd just rather have a $5 sandwich than cook steak and shrimp, you know? But every time I go out, when I get that bill for $50 or whatever, I just think, "Man, I could have made this at home for less than half this!" and it sucks.

I don't have an all-time favorite restaurant simply because I'd list a ton. Right now, I'm really fancying French food and Cafe des Artistes in Hollywood is one of the better ones. Sometimes you'll find a celebrity here and there. One day, I spotted Denzel Washington while I had lunch there with a friend. I like the atmosphere there, especially the outdoor patio which is a bit hard to describe because it feels like a secluded French villa with a tropical greenhouse ambience about it. The food is wonderful. Authentic French, but with a Spanish/Moroccan twist. A bit pricey ($25 per plate roughly with entrees), but I don't find it outrageous although the only thing that's pricier than what I'd like is the beer. They have a massive wine list and so, this is more like a place you'd go for fine cuisine/fine wine and bring your honey along.
