Best of New York Food 2004

Best Splurge

  • Bouley

    120 West Broadway, 212-964-2525

    "Dining in NY is like looking for sea shells on the beach, there are plenty to choose from, but the precious ones are few. Bouley is one of those finds. The decor is beautiful and comfortable, without being stuffy. The dishes are as inventive as they are delicious and the portions are more than satisfying. What a special place."
    —Adam, Murray Hill

  • Chanterelle

    2 Harrison Street, 212-966-6960

    "From the stunning flower arrangements, the decor centerpeices that welcome you when you walk in, to the dreamy chocolate deserts that bid you sweet farewell, Chanterelle is a timeless classic that never ceases to enchant me."
    —bambola, West Village

  • Le Bernardin

    155 W. 51st Street, 212-489-1515

    "Everything was divine! Even the little macaroon I had with my espresso was delicious...If I were in the privacy of my home, I would have licked the plates of all my courses clean."
    —Anastasia, Upper East Side
