I would have to say that Gene & Georgetti's gets my 3 star rating. Where else can you go for a perfectly prepared steak and feel like you're hanging out with the Rat Pack?

Lula. It's the best food for the money I've ever had--and a great blend of comfort and surprise.

To clarify, we mean three stars in the Michelin Guide sense, where three is the best you can get.

Bistro Campagne in Lincoln Square. Hits the spot every time. I'd give a nod to a couple other favorites, but they're crowded enough as it is.

North Pond. We went over a year ago and I hope to go again next season.

Moody's Pub. Accept no alternative.

Jury's. Lincoln and Pensacola. I've never had a bad meal or a bad time there.

seconding Lula.
not only is the food something you'd never make at home, but its something you'd never *think* to make of even if you did have access to all of their fantastic ingredients.
