This sounds truly awful. Thank you for doing this so I don't have to.

I went to one of their Paris locations earlier this year, and there was no way that a New York location would deliver the same quality. While I thought the meal was merely decent, it was far cheaper (35-ish Euros, all-in since there's no tipping, and wine was six euros a glass) and I queued for roughly thirty minutes. The salad in Paris was great, with a very spicy mustardy, horseradishy dressing

your posts are amazing but this one... 👨🏾‍🍳😘👌🏾

and i’m going to repeat this grace line plenty of times in the future - “11:01. The guy and the girl next to me, upon receiving their steaks, stop talking and individually ‘gram their red meat in silence. This is how we say grace in 2023.”

fwiw, no problems with the thc 😎 appreciate the transparency and hey if you’re gonna suffer this much on line to bring us magical words...

Sad to see, because I always liked L'Entrecote and was looking forward to returning - at least when I used to show up and there was no line. Did it change, or did we?

Not that anyone is taking votes, and it is obviously controversial, so here we are - love the review but sad to say I'll put my hand up that I am not a fan of the THC content, sorry, call me a fuddy duddy but I find it off-putting. Just mentioning that there is a segment of the reader base who loves the reviews otherwise that might feel this way.

That said, if this is the way forward, maybe use it for a "way off the radar" section or something? (ok, there is actually a fair amount of that around here - thank you) I'd love some entertaining reviews of Casa Di Isacco and Chez Napoleon or unique places that bring joy in their own way that aren't landing in the NYT, you know what I mean.

Excellent! I had considered it when it first opened back in the day but rather don't love restaurants that serve one thing. I NEVER would have queued for it. There is a new one such in New Orleans, Medium Rare, and the couple I met recently said it was quite bad even with no wait.

Great fun, but you give away too much in the hed and dek. Save some of the mystery, as Archie Bunker said, perusing Gloria's miniskirt. I'm astonished that it seems to have returned at a lower price point than when we patronized it during the Bloomberg days. I think this demands a folo at Tad's Steakhouse. Damn, I see it finally shuttered. Next up: The pasta at Isle d'Capri...
