Ate at Reserve Cut for the first time.  Generally prefer assortment of apps over a main, so that's what I did.  Some thoughts on the food:
  • Porcini Mushroom -- out of this world, worth the exorbitant $17 price tag
  • Chilean Sea Bass sushi roll -- excellent
  • Lamb Gnocchi -- very disappointing
  • Aromatic Baby Back Ribs -- overcooked, disappointed
  • Toro Aburi - good, not great
  • "Snicker Bar" dessert -- excellent
Very much agree on the appetizer move. Baby Back Ribs - is that the thin beef strips? If yes then I must agree. But I cant believe you didn't get the tacos.

So I'm sure this has been "chewed" over (haha) many times here but: Reserve Cut or Le Marais? dh owes me a really nice birthday dinner (no gift last year means a double gift this year ;D).

should i stick to what i know i like at Le Marais or venture out and try RC for the first time? or perhaps just go over the bridge and do etc/nobo, etc...

RC without a doubt. IMO, quality at Le Marais has dropped substantially lately.

Also a good option, but I personally think RC is better. Not by much though.

Mike's is better than RC for dinner unless you're a real sucker for ambiance.

RC lunch OTOH is a good value.

Mike's isn't designed to get full of an entree. I don't view that as a flaw.

His apps, soup, and fries are all fantastic. No reason the entree needs to massive.

Even with this additions, you still won't be paying more than at RC, but the food quality is better overall IMHO.

good to know. we personally don't usually get apps. just a decent steak and a good drink and we're happy :)

That works at LM where fries and salad are included.
Won't work at Mike's/RC/Pardes/TPG/etc where they're not.

Mike's corn soup and duck gnocchi though are 10/10. As are his short ribs and passion fruit frozen daiquiri.

Then be prepared to pay 2x-5x more to be full. LM is a great value, but variety is good.

If youve never been to mikes then its a great place, but its been basically the same menu for the past 10 years. Getting really old.

Reserve adds things constantly.

If you do go to Reserve and end up with a steak, please get the chateaubriand for 2. Its outrageous. All the other steaks are good, but they're just a steak. Im personally bored of "just a steak".
