Too difficult -- so many!

Nikolai's Roof, at the Atlanta Hilton
The Half Shell -- http://www.halfshell-memphis.com/
Oh yeah, I forgot about Naples: http://naplesitalianrestaurant.net/ I haven't eaten there in years because i haven't been back to Knoxville, but the place is amazing.
Local restaurants are the only real restaurants. Chain restaurants (ie. Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill, Outback) are just places to eat.
Two of my favorites here in the Boston area
Do they still do the verbal menu?
Many in San Francisco:
The Hyde Street Bistro
Fog City Diner
Osha Thai Noodle
Sister Bay, Wisconsin -- Al Johnson's
Fond du Lac, WI -- Schreiner's
Waukesha, WI -- Gasthaus
Appleton, WI http://www.vincelombardisteakhouse.com/
Moose's is going bye-bye. It's being changed into a homestyle Italian joint in a neighborhood that already has dozens of them.
The other three are quite good. Osha Thai has sprouted into an upscale chain all of a sudden, but the original outpost in the Tendernob is still the place to go for your late night dining needs (unless you want Chinese food, in which case you go to Yuet Lee instead).
Its been a while since I've lived in SF, but thats good news about Thai Noodle. We used to go there when it was half the size. I've been back there a few time since when it was expanded, but "upscale"? good for them! My taste buds still dream about that place.
San Francisco however is still one of the best food cities I've ever been to.
Salad King- Thai
King's Noodle House- Chinese
Asteria (not Astoria)- Greek on the Danforth
The Host- Indian
Swiss Chalet- I know it's a chain, but damn is their rotisserie chicken good. And best fries. I miss SC.
Centre Street Deli- best old fashioned smoked meat in the world.
Bagel World and Kiva's Bagels
Future's Bakery in the Annex- for dessert only.
Le Paradis- country French
Daou Restaurant- middle eastern food
Snowden Deli- The original Centre Street Deli
Le Club Du Village- country French
Cafe Orange- breakfast, sandwiches
The Wiener Circle- late night chili dogs and abuse.
Koi- Asian Fusion
Crustacian- Asian Fusion, it's all about the Roasted Crab and garlic noodles
Fat Fish and Ami Sushi- sushi
Jerry's Deli- Matzo Ball Soup!
Sorry no links- I just sliced open my finger on my oven and it was hard enough to finish this post. Use the magic of Google.
- Valentino's in Basel (Switzerland) - I love the veggie burgers they make, best I've had anywhere
- Scarpas in Albuquerque. Italian/pizza place
- Sandiago's Mexican Grill in Albuquerque. Great views, excellent mexican food - best con Queso I've had.
- Le Papillon in Toronto. I've not been there for years now so it may have changed, but I was a regular there for the spinach crepes
- Orchid - a thai place in Albuquerque
There's also an east indian place in Vancouver that I try to get to whenever I am over there but the name escapes me at the moment....oh yeah!
Fastfood-> Chick Fil A..amazing chicken
Restaraunt-> Olive Garden..amazing pasta
Buffet: Ci Ci's amazing pizza + so cheap
Coriander - All time favorite restaurant. It's this amazing Indian place in Vorhees. Just amazing and is a little oasis of Indian food in an area where very little ethnic food from that region exists.
Taqueria Pacifica - Providence
If you think Olive Garden is good, you've never had real Italian food. Olive Garden is a horrible attempt at italian.
The last time I went they had stopped doing this -- they had gone to a printed menu, which offered more choices than what used to be on the verbal menu. (Including extra price items, so it's no longer purely a fixed price menu)
I've eaten in a lot of restaurants all over the U.S. and internationally. These are three that stand out the most. Maybe for sentimental reasons.
Sydney Australia - Cafe Sydney
San Francisco - Farallon
Chicago - Superdawg
the french laundry, napa valley
per se, ny
le bernardin, ny
les halles, ny
bouchon, napa valley
pot au feu, providence
red stripe, providence
baker st bistro, SF
lola + lolita, cleveland
la sardine, chicago
just to name a few. i have not eaten at all of them yet, but they are all on my list. i may be able to cross off the french laundry and bouchon this summer.
Red Orchids in Charleston. Best Chinese Bistro this side of a larger city with lots of Chinese Bistros.
(It can still hold its own against them, too).
Cypress is also cool, but that may have more to do with the color changing ceiling whose coolness factor is indirectly proportional to your level of sobriety.
Charleston has a fair number of exceptionally good local restaurants with legitimate chefs.
And 13th Street Barbecue in Phenix City, AL is also quite good.
