Perhaps you misunderstand what I mean by "Teaneck's restaurants are pretty weak."

That is not a quantitative statement, it's a qualitative one.

Pound for pound, Teaneck's eateries do not hold up to CH. (And I say that as a fan of both ETC and NoBo.)
I think etc is one of the best restaurants in the country.

Went to Senders for lunch. Got 4 sandwiches (4 people). I had the brisket and the Ziggy (schnitzel with bacon). Both were good. Don't get them takeoit unless you get bread on side. Picked up a Dino rib ($27) to eat tonight. Currently heating it in my sous vide. Will report on quality but it is large, but significantly smaller than izzys. Mine is about 1.5lbs but the bone is large.

I've been to Mike's, wolf and lamb, Abigaels, tierra sur, shallots, La Gandola (only the higher end ones).

The tasting menu at etc for under $100 (plus tip) is phenomenal both in terms of food and value.

Top 5?

Of places I've been to, only Mike's is definitely better. And you can't get anything close to the amount of food for under $150 + tax/tip there.

Tierra sur might be better, but again, very pricey.

Also the byob element of etc is huge. I can do a 5 course tasting x2 with a bottle of wine for $250 all in. Very few other places like that.

They pick items from the main menu, occasionally giving you something off menu. The portions in the 5 course work out to 2 small apps each, and 2 half-size entrée portions, and dessert. You can give them likes and dislikes. I think all the times I've done it, the entrées have been 2 different steaks. Certainly at least 1 course will be steak.

ETC is great, particularly the food.  But it is isn't even in top 10 or 15 as far as ambiance and service. I don't believe it's even top 5 in food.

Easily rated ahead of it are:

--Shallot's
--Barnea
--Doma
--Harbor Bistro
--Reserve Cut

Completely disagree about shallots.
