I meant to post a thread last week, but c'est la vie. Instead you get two posts in one.
First is my lunch today from the extravagant Russian Tea Room. A little weird that as a native of NYC who's lived here my whole life that I've never been to a landmark like this, but shrug.
I'll say this much. This is the ideal perfection of beef stroganoff. The meat was fork tender, the flavors were fucking gorgeous together and literally the best version of this dish I've ever had.
I had a (blurry) cheesecake. Couldn't even sit still long enough to get a steady pic. For shame.
Thanks for the reply, nignog.
I think it might be all the touching up on the filters. I should read up to do that better, because I'm not too fond of this pic, either. Skatewing on my plate, beef on my friend's.
I actually regretted my cheese plate, which was very bland. Her dessert was much better
As I didn't take any pix of appetizers (monochromatic soup isn't exactly photogenic), here's a pic of a freebie from a bar downtown called Village Pourhouse.
I'd love the place if it wasn't for the bros and NYU kids that populate it. And the godawful music.
bruh, the fact that you think i'm upset is even funnier. seeing people as stupid as yourself actually brightens my day, because it's a pleasant reminder that i could easily have been a huge loser in life like yourself had countless factors not come into play. tards like you are a good reminder to normies on how much better we have things.
blessed janitor, attempting to clean up this post, how nice to see you.
anyway, moar pix.
>I can't handle the truth so I'll jump to conclusions and project like I'm not a complete retard!
You could at least type properly if you want to act like you're not a "huge loser tard".
Protip son, when you go out to eat often enough you don't have to take pictures of it for attention every time.
protip child, when i go to a place i haven't been before, i enjoy taking pictures - especially when it's an experience i haven't had before. this is what normal people do. don't worry, one day you might actually not be a loser outcast who doesn't get to experience nice things.
(probably not, keep GiS'ing for more cat puke to get over your butthurt)
Not op but restaurant week is pleb city, no one cares as long as you don't smell
There are a few spots with dress codes still (not counting places that encourage "smart casual") but it's unlikely you'd end up at such a place by accident.
Surprisingly, the Russian Tea Room had no dress code. Saw a dude in a t-shirt on the other side of the place. I wore a jacket, because I assumed they did. Other places that I ate at for RW that had a dress code were Le Cirque and Delmonico's.
Long and short, there are plenty of uppity places with surprisingly no dress requirement, but there are some that still have it. Check yelp/tripadvisor/4square/the place's website before hand.
Honestly, this is NYC. Bring one nice shirt and pants that aren't khakis, cargo or jeans. There are always things to do here including things you'll want to dress nicely for: a good club, play, classy restaurant, shopping... whatever.
Trading war stories here but we had Dineout aka shilling for big chain restaurants that isnt a mcdonalds and the highlight was a dockside lunch just because I felt like chilling out.
French onion soup, cheese pulled off just right
Ordered seafood pasta. Forgot mussels are in season during summer so meat is smaller. Sauce was loaded with scallop puree so you actually got your money's worth in seafood
Last one was creme brulee. More custard than creme. Again I was ordering out of season fruits
Hurricane Grill. They had a promo menu for 20 beaverbucks.
Also. Visit to Gyu Kaku as summed up in one plate. Pretty good bbq for a franchise, beats most independant ones
