Best of New York Food 2003

Best Meatloaf

  • HAL RUBENSTEIN

    Cafeteria

    119 Seventh Avenue, 212-414-1717

  • ADAM PLATT

    Ouest

    2315 Broadway, at 84th Street, 212-580-8700

    This Sunday-evening special is a retro classic, replete with crinkly strips of bacon into the edges.

  • ROBIN RAISFELD

    Sciuscià

    365 Park Ave. South, 212-213-4008

    A baroque blend of beef and veal, plus salami, prosciutto, egg, and raisins, simmered in tangy tomato sauce.

  • ROB PATRONITE

    Etats-Unis

    242 E. 81st Street, 212-517-8826
