    WHAT? No McDonald's? hehe

    From that menu, they would have to pay me to eat it.

    I love Bourdain! I'd give a kidney to eat at El Bulli before it closes.

    I'm dying to go to some of the NYC places (I think I'd try Le Bernardin first, since I think Ripert is just amazing) but I don't have the budget for it, unfortunately.

    I have eaten at some incredible places when I lived in Portland, ME. One of the best meals of my life was at bresca. If you're ever in the area you have to go!

    I also want to check out the James Beard house, I've been reading a lot about him lately.

    James Beard House? Isn't James Beard the name of a very prestigious Design award? Related? Or am I completely off here...

    WitchCurl, we've got to have lunch in NY one of these days!

    Love the French Laudry, but Per Se is so impressed with itself. I also like more ethnically interesting restaurants like Asia de Cuba.

    i've never been in a nice restaurant. i am just not the type. Although, we have a nice restaurant here called The Brigantine, and i just went in for drinks.

    my idea of fancy is The Outback Steakhouse.

    ANYONE?? I'd love to hear a review of any/all restaurants that posters have been to!
    I've eaten at Daniel and Eleven Madison Park. Both memorable and worth it. At Daniel, you might as well be eating in your own dining room. The wait staff there has a very special way of engaging you, making you feel at home yet still serving you. I can't believe I haven't eaten at any of those round the world restaurants because I'll always treat myself to a great meal.

    Voted the world's best restaurant many times over - Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    Noma has been called the best restaurant in the world for the past two years by an international panel of influential restaurant critics organized by Britainís Restaurant magazine. When it unseated Spainís El Bulli for the top spot in 2010, shock waves reverberated throughout the food world.Nomaís 34-year-old chef, Rene Redzepi, soon became the champion of a new Nordic cuisine built on the flavors of foraged herbs and edible plants. His plates look like gorgeously rendered simulacra of natural landscapes, and his ingredients celebrate the high-latitude bounty of Scandinavia. You wonít find foie gras and truffles on this menu, but you might sample the best Swedish bleak roe, pickled ramson shoots, Finnish muikku fish, sloe berries and musk ox.A meal at Noma | Food and More with John Kessler

    Um, maybe. Scandinavian food really is not that good. I'd give it a shot though.
