What did i think of the list? I still don’t understand D.O.M. and I think im never going to. Estela is also a mystery to me. OF all the great not as expensive wonderful NY restaurants to feature in the top 50 it boggles my mind that that one is the one chosen. I am very much looking forward to trying OSteria Francescana!! Something wonderful about this list are the pictures in the website!!!! This link has some ridiculous pictures of courses in the restaurants that are going to water your mouth.
