Starter at Le Cantorbery in Dinan. We try visit this place most years, excellent steaks cooked over their wooden fire also.

Gary, better lobster there than at Francisco’s Centro Vasco at 159 West 23rd Street???

Actually, the lobsters are a tie. Both are fantastic. Both are world class for lobster.

We have been to Francisco's about 15 times (we found them first) and El Quijote about six or seven times over the last 15 years. We go to both places and like them both very much. We enjoy a lobster orgy almost twice a year. They are both about 20 blocks from the theater district so it's a brisk walk after the theater. When we go there, it's usually after a matinee. If we ate lobster first, we would probably sleep through the theater.

The salads and "pre-lobster" courses at El Quijote are better. 226 West 23rd St. They are only a block from each other.

Thank you, Gary. I am glad to know that my high regard for Francisco’s was not misplaced! :)

I always considered Francisco’s a lobster-lover’s dream restaurant (lobster-wise, not decor-wise or ambiance-wise, of course).

You're welcome. You can't go wrong at either restaurant.

Don't forget to have the red Sangria along with the lobsters at Francisco's.

Here is the greatest Thai dessert. Mango and sticky rice steamed with coconut milk.

I'm very easy to please. Real 1960s Brooklyn pizza that I grew up with. Nothing fancy (no crap on it) just done right. As a kid in Brooklyn, my two favorites was under the EL on Kings Highway and the Pizza Den at the junction (Junction of Nostrand and Flatbush). As a teenager, I grew up on Ave J Di Fara Pizza, which is now "heralded" as the best pizza in NY and some say in the country. It was good but that is stretching it. Bloomberg made the place famous over the last 20 years as that was his "spot". That was "our" corner to hang out so I am pretty much saturated with it and never really gave it the nod.

I have been extremely disappointed with my visits to NYC in search of "really good pizza". I have my scale. It's a logarithmic scale. Between Hoboken, Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn haven't found anything above 8.

I was simply reading this thread because who doesn't like good food.
Lobster, seafood, Eastern seaboard, USA and Canada and France and Italy and Vietnam and Hong Kong and Thailand and ... etc.

The best food I had was like a romantic walk under the full moon by the ocean; Italian, Greek, French, Canadian, etc. ... on land and on the ocean (boats).

I had great food in Quebec, in Gaspe, in Alma, in Montreal, in Quebec City, in British Columbia, in Alberta, in Victoria, in Vancouver, in Banff, Jasper, travelling The Rockies, working the West coast by boats, I had good food in Mexico, travelling both coasts of the USA, I love seafood, crab, lobster, etc.

Some of the best smokemeats I had was in Montreal and in Vancouver.
The best Pizza I had was in Quebec, near Montreal.
The best spaghetti in Quebec and Victoria and Vancouver.
The best filet mignon near Montreal and Vancouver.

If I was rich I would travel the world to eat the best food from all the best restaurants and local paradises. I wouldn't mind going for good while being in ecstasy over a succulent meal, like having a cosmic orgasm. It's a way of speech to say that dying while being fulfilled beats many other ways. And the best food is not a bad way @ all, I'm thinking.

Best money I spent was on a two year tuition at Le Cordon Bleu for my wife.

Good threat to bring back! I bet we've all been cooking more. I've been perfecting my Salmon recipe, it uses maple syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice + hot peppers, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Cooked on a cedar plank on a hardwood charcoal grill.

For me it is Italian. Plenty of that here in the Philly area. Love me some of that gravy. However, I could really go for a nice oily Italian Hoagie with shavings of Sharp Provalone cheese. That will do the trick tonight! Been about a year.

Dave, I don’t eat fish but my wife does and she cooks her own salmon on wood planks. I showed her your post and she said it looks delicious.
