RESTAURANT REGIS MARCON

This is as good as it gets me thinks.

The 180 euros menu is blasphemous!
The wine list is the knock out blow!

And the day after that, check out the 100 euros lunch menu at Trois Gros.

And for the Grand Finale...Paul Bocuse for dinner and the 240 euros Menu Grande Tradition.
You can even get a bottle of Romané Conti to go with it. About 5000 euros a bottle. :mrgreen:

Tucson AZ - - Cafe Poca Cosa serves the most incredible Mexican/Southwest food. It's really just so fuckin' good! They also have a little offshoot breakfast-only cafe, which serves equally tasty breakfast.

In Chicago, my favorite steak house is Smith & Wolenski (not sure of spelling). It's not cheap, but from the appetizers to the perfectly cooked steaks to the chocolate mousse for dessert, you can't go wrong.

Wildfire is great, but Smith & Wolenski is world class.

Whenever I'm in Seattle I always go to the '5 Spot' for brunch, and Ray's for dinner. The food is great at both, but they each have a real pull for me when I'm there.

The Green Parrot

http://www.greenparrot.co.nz/

I've been going to this place since I was old enough to go anyplace unsupervised at night, about thirteenish....in the 60's the Parrott was one of about three or four eating places open beyond midnight (capital city of NZ!) Roy's burger bar, The Casablanca (steak house) The Pie Cart (caravan burger joint)...In later years I was involved in an auto repair business about 200 yards from the Parrott, with the aid of binoculars we would check out the clientele prior to deciding on whether or not to dine...Some of the cities movers and shackers and several politicians are regulars there, which can make for a lively meal. We were there a little after midnight one night, and one of my friends discovered an unconscious member of parliment sitting Elvis like upon the toilet, pants around the ankles comb over undone...John returned to the restaurant and casually went over to the political table and whispered in the ear of the leader of one of the two major party's in NZ, who then just as casualy strolled to the restroom to reassemble his colleague...Fortunately for those concearned this happened long before the phone camera era so thankfully no photos exist...but I digress

A great restaurant

Hows Thai restaurant in Manly.
His daughters worked there too, and when we went there we would say 'How's your father'...
Hilarious....

Also, Shakespeares Pie Shop, Manly.
The best potato and broccoli pies ever.

The best Cajun food I've ever had outside of my two trips to New Orleans.
