Just went to gourmet k. Had the meet me appetizer was very good. Had the hanger steak which wasn't great. And the chicken with mushrooms which is basically a chicken Marsala and that was very good. For dessert had the tiramisu and that was not bad. I would recommend it but would rather go to any restaurant in manhattan for same price.

I don't get it. Why is a restaurant in Manhattan automatically better and worth the spend?

Usually people spend more when they want to "go out" and not just for a meal. if you want a night out, going around the corner doesn't cut it for a lot of people. Going into the city adds to the experience.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Isn't Crown Heights part of Brooklyn? Why aren't the CH places listed?

I hear. But with all that, there are lots of places in Manhattan that aren't worth the extra spend. If you are going for the a "night out" I would either go really cheap or really high-end. The in between places in Manhattan are too expensive to be worth it.

true. but a middle of the road place like wolf and lamb might be a good option to catch dinner after a day in the city, not necessarily as a destination by itself.

I disagree, I had dinner at Wolf & Lamb in the city.

For a $150 meal that wasn't worth $150, I would've been happier going to J2 for $30.

Update on T-Fusion, went there tonite.
Started with a couple of drinks - the fusion martini - out of site and the pink cheesecake (yes, it tasted like cheesecake) - good, not out of site
Appetizers We both had the Chicken Crisps, as advertised in DD forums. Very good, with the hot mayonnaise as well. It didn't knock us off our feet, but was excellent.
Mains - We both had (boring people we are) the special which was a 8 oz fillet minion (not the place you daven). I asked for it butterflied and my wife asked for it medium to well done. My wife's came rare and had to be returned. Mine didn't seem butterflied, was mostly well done until the center that was red. Came with fries. Not 100% sure why it's so different then the 12 oz one for about the same price. When they asked for feedback, we gave it to them. Wouldn't if they didn't ask. For dessert we each had a drink called the milky way, excellent. Then the chocolate cake with ice cream on top. It was good, but my wife a better one by far.
Price with 18% gratuity = 200.46
Overall, very good meal, quiet, but there were only a few people there, nice looking place, nice presentations of the meals, friendly staff. They need to work on getting it right based on the customers request.

Because I'm strange and only like well done steaks. Last time I was there they butterflied it and made it all well done throughout and it was heaven. I know most chefs hate making a steak well done. I go through this all the time.

charred on the outside and  rare/medium on the inside
I'm hoping it'll combine the best of both worlds, charred flavor w/o being too dry

to request well done is bad enough, to request that the chef mutilate the steak is a whole different league. im surprised any chef fulfilled your request
