    I tried crocodile once. It did not taste like any chicken to me......More like crocodile really.

    I would never bother with it again nor the emu I tried at the same restaurant.

    Kangaroo fillet is vey tasty however and I can buy it in my local supermarket.

    I know the answer, but I'm not going to tell anyone for fear that prices will go up.

    Someone beat me to "Arthur Bryant's". (It was Calvin Trillin, around 1972.)

    A lot of restaurants used to take skate filet...punch out little discs...and sell it as scallops.

    Is a website full of people who are willing to spend tons of money on guitars when a $200 dollar squire will do, really going to get on the case of people who prefer to spend their money on a different sort of passion?

    Let them have their deconstructed cake, and let us have our don mare pickups in warmouth partscasters.

    Well, I love a good meal, even a fancy meal, as long as it's fun to go there. The very idea that there is one "best restaurant in the world" is pretty silly. Some of the really fancy places feel more like a chore - I've eaten at a few of the top NYC spots plus done some dining around the world. The favorite in my hometown is a humble bakery / lunch cafe that has wonderful homemade sandwiches and so on. Worldwide I would say that the Blue Saucer (I think) in Mexico City was really, really memorable, a couple places in Saigon were unforgettable, and Pok Pok in Portland Oregon is a must go. I would highly highly recommend the truck stop / Czech bakery / BBQ joint on I-35 between Dallas and Austin as well.

    My favorite restaurant is The Palm, in NYC, but I’m not exactly a globetrotter.

    When I worked for a Madison Avenue ad agency, our print vendors wined and dined us at the best restaurants in the city in order to win new business/projects.

    I always had whole lobster and filet mignon combo, not that The Palm makes it better than anywhere else, but it tasted so much better because I wasn’t paying.

    All I know is that the best seafood I ever had was in Haines, Alaska. I'd swear that when you ordered, they went over to the river and caught it and then cooked it. Best salmon I ever had.

    A friend of mine who has traveled the world thinks that The Taj Mahal here in Fort Collins has the best Indian food he's ever had. I think it's close but there are a couple that I think best it. One was in Boulder and the other in Silver Spring, MD.

    It's not the best restaurant in the world, but I'd like to promote Woody's Pub in Coquitlam for all of the Lower Mainlanders on this forum.
    They have an $18 Prime Rib on Fridays that is really tasty. They also have a great selection of beer, and very friendly staff. It's just a great dining experience, which is what I need from a restaurant.

    I also remember someone (Scali McAbe or JWT) taking us out to Sparks or something nice in NYC

    Remember once we were taken to a fancy place, Michelin rated. They served us quail eggs and a squirt of something around the plate.

    I kept asking the server to bring me bread lol

    I've eaten at 11 Madison Park ( a few times, which was voted 'Best In World' a few years in a row in the early teens and again in 2017. Stupid expensive (it was always a work thing so not out of my pocket), but beyond superb. Way, way beyond superb; but at nearly $1000 for dinner for two with wine you should expect that. Changed the way I look at restaurants, really kind of ruined restaurants for me lol.

    Also very nice, but different, is Atera in NYC ( That was an anniversary present to the Mrs ONCE lol, it's another 'save up and come again' place :)

    Mama's Fish House in Maui. Best restaurant I've dinned at. It’s gotten to point you better make a Dinner reservation 3 months in advance and its not cheap. But the setting is unbelievable. mamas-fish-house-maui-584914.jpg fixedw_large_4x.jpg

    The dinner I had at Per Se was like that for me. Damn near $500 for two (really expensive at the time) and can I remember anything we ate? No, sir, I cannot. Now, the dinner at Buca di S. Francesco in Assisi? Every moment, every flavor engraved permanently on my brain.

    I don't go to stupidly expensive restaurants any more.
