It’s been a year since my last (and first) bucket list of restaurants and I can proudly say I did manage to knock one off, albeit it was the easiet (and by far, the cheapest) – Grey’s Papaya. 2010, I hope to up my numbers to three.
1. Per Se (NY)
2. French Laundry (Napa)
3. Jean Georges (NY)
4. El Bulli (Spain) this will have to wait until at least 2010. They’re booked up in 2009.
5. Lolita (Cleveland)
6. Alinea (Chicago)
7. Tru (Chicago)
8. Joe’s Stone Crab (Miami) been here twice before, but it’s been a while and I need to go back.
9. K Paul’s (New Orleans)
10. Les Halles (NY) just because.
11. Blue Hill at Stone Barns (Pocantico Hills) because Dan Barber is a god to me.
