New York, New York
June 12, 2002
It is almost always fully booked, so make sure to reserve in advance. The service will be impeccable - you'll find yourself questioning your own manners.
The food is legendary - and although more traditional than many up and coming restaurants, it's dependably delicious. The duck is especially well-prepared and succulent. Be prepared, however -- it's very, very expensive.
It is an experience in itself, regardless of the food, from the doorman to the elevator to the descent when you're full, slightly buzzed, and awed.
