Best Steakhouses ..... Porter House New York, BLT Prime, Harry’s Steak, Peter Luger, Minetta Tavern

Best Value ..... Eleven Madison Park (the $88 prix fixe) and Momofuku Ssam Bar

Where he spends his own money ..... Peasant and The Bar Room at the Modern

Lotus, Lotus, Lotus. What the flip is going on here? Even in the absence of Crans, you have to stay true to yourself. Don't change just because you think people expect you to step up to the mark. Get back to stirring the pot where you belong and leave food and travel to others. I want to ensure that nothing or nobody compromises the man I have come to know and love from afar;-)

New York City didn't even get an honorable mention here:

Surely an oversight.

Lotus goes legit. How adorable is that? I hope that when I was on vacation he did me the honor of hijacking posts to BK.
