I just got back and had some great meals but I made reservations way in advance. I doubt you'll get in unless there's a cancellation: Le Bernardine lunch - profound Little Owl dinner- tiny one room place in west village. Superb Estella lunch - very good on edge of SOHO. Great chef Le C...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
