Best tapas (in a town suddenly filled with tapas): Julian Serrano
Best bread: Joel Robuchon (Note to “Mad Man” Mancini (who wrote the entry): Our staff thinks it’s a toss up between JR and Guy Savoy.)
Best dessert: Canneles de Bordeaux at SAGE (Unpleasant update: Shawn McClain informed us last night (2.4.11), that canneles were no longer on the menu, and Lura Poland was no longer with the restaurant.) ;-(
Best salsa: Frank and Fina’s Cocina
Best restaurant splurge: Twist by Pierre Gagnaire
Best vegetarian dish: Orange-braised fennel at Lakeside Grill
…and our personal favorite category:
Best restaurant that’s closest to John Curtas’ house: Anthony & Mario’s Broadway Pizzeria
Two questions though:
Where the hell is John Mull’s Meats? (Answer: 3730 Thom Blvd.?)
And who the hell approved Einstein’s Bagels and White Cross Drugs as having the best coffee in town?
ELV thinks this is what happens when you let the children play dress-up.
Or, when you send a boy to do a man’s job.
