I went to Bambara for my birthday the other week and it was fantastic. Just about every time I’ve been there I’ve been impressed. Solid 8.5/10 in my book.
I haven’t been to Takashi, but I hear good things. They have ridiculously long wait times and unusual hours.
The Copper Onion is wildly overrated IMO. Same with Pallet. Way too much $$$$ for very OK food.
I don’t get the Pretty Bird hype. I do know the owner and worked with him right before he closed Forage. I’ve heard very good things about Forage- sad I couldn’t try it.
I’ve been to Current once and had a terrible experience, but some people think that place is the bee’s knees. I don’t get it.
Valter’s Osteria is on my list of places to try. Red Iguana is meh.
I’m obviously leaving out quite a few…what do ya’ll think?
