On The Road / Avis vs National vs Hertz

Avis Presidents vs National Executive Elite vs Hertz President Circle

I have Avis and matched to the others.

Price aside, which is the best from the three? I did notice that National offers "Private Airport Delivery - We'll have your car waiting at most private airports within 50 miles of us. (in US and Canada)"

Ate at Prime Grill for lunch today. First off, this new location is much nicer IMO. Second, the food today was absolutely delicious! We were a table of 6 and ordered a little of everything. OK, not everything but their lunch menu is quite expansive with a lot to choose from. Chicken & Waffle nuggets, Grilled Wagyu ribs, 2 plates pf Beef jerky, Selection of 5 Air Dried Cured Meat , one guy had a soup. Mains: Chimichurri Marinated 10oz Hangar Steak, Center Cut 14oz rib-eye, and I'm not sure which other steaks for mains. Sides: Sauteed Garlic Spinach, Roasted Artichokes, Fries.  (I needed to look up the menu online to remind myself what we had).

All I had was a coffee for breakfast and this meal which started at 1pm.. I'm still full now at 1030pm.

I'll admit, when I was at the old location with my wife we weren't impressed, felt like it was very crowded and food wasn't great. I wonder if it just tasted better this time because I didn't pay  ::)

Overall 2 thumbs up!

I ended up with the CK3100  (Amazon 149) and the harness for 44.99 (http://safewireless.com/).

I installed if with help from my friend, took less than 30 min. With the harness its simple plug and play. They (Safewireless) sent me 11-step instructions which made it a breeze. only thing you need to do is tap one wire into power.

Everyone else wanted over 200 just to install..

Last night my wife and I went to Prime at the Bentley for her birthday. When we got there at 7, there were only a few people eating outside. We were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside, we chose to sit outside. The weather was perfect, not too hot with a little breeze and the view of Manhattan and the Queensboro Bridge was pretty nice.

I'm not sure when all the people on DDF, who said the service was terrible, went, but the service for us was not a problem at all. The bread and water was brought within a minute of us sitting down and the waiter was very knowledgable and attentive.

We shared the veal slider appeteizer ($20), which was a special and not on the menu, and came with 3 very juicy delicous sliders. For our mains, my wife got the Lamb Burger ($27) which came with a side of fries. It was a 12 oz. burger which was a nice size portion and luckily for me she wasn't able to finish the whole thing  ;D. I got the rack of ribs ($36) which also came with a side of fries. The ribs came as a rack of 5 bones, with a nice amount of meat on them. They were very soft and tender, but a little bit on the dry side. I like my meat more rare, but this was by no means terrible and I'm sure some people prefer them this way. See pictures below of burger and ribs.

Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely go back for another special occasion.

I was thinking about going there for my Anniversary. While the food in these pics look good, the plating looks 'empty'. I'm not saying people always eat the lettuce thats placed on the plate beneath your food, but it does give the impression of a fuller plate as well as a not having that bare plate look.

any one else agree/disagree?

(I've also been in diet mode for a while, so I'm ok with it)
