Megu - New York City

Okay, this is off topic a bit. We went to New York City for our 10th anniversary. We had lunch, saw a show (Spamalot) and had dinner. Lunch was at Pancho something, a restaurant on 44th Street honoring Pancho Villa. It was good Mexican food. But that's not what I'm writing about.

We had dinner at Megu, an ultra-premium Japanese fusion restaurant. It was one of the best meals I ever had. The sushi and sashimi were outstanding. We had a variety of other dishes, including two different kinds of Kobe steak. Every menu item was fantastic. The food melted in our mouths. I won't be able to eat sushi for a couple weeks because anything I have now will be disappointing.

Our waiter, Kevin, was very helpful in picking out things from the menu, and the restaurant manager Paul was also very attentive and thoughtful.

One warning, this was far and away the most expensive meal we ever ate. I can't even publish how much it cost.

What a small world, we just got back from the City as well for our 5th anniversary and we also went to Spamalot.

Have been reading the restaurant reviews on your site. Very helpful. :)

Thanks for your kind remark. I didn't realize anyone was reading my blog. :-) You've motivated me to do more.

Checked out the menu for Megu online, wanted to weep with longing, and then, as serendipity would have it, was shortly thereafter the recipient of a call from a friend who had just dined there and waxed ecstatic. This, of course, will neccesitate emptying my bank account (she commented that dinner for 4 on her husband's expense account was well over $800) and venturing south to where the real sushi lives.
Great Blog by the way
