I think that the meat restaurants are OK. The dairy restaurants are pretty mediocre and that's being generous.
Agreed. Mocha Bleu and Shelley's need to turn it around, and Rabbica is supposedly good, but is too small to really be on the map.

Sammys food is generally fine, but the service is horrendous for a counter service place. Like comically bad.

Mocha Bleu needs some serious changes (strip the title ;D and start from fresh) had so many bad experience there.

My argument to people every day  ;D ;D
If someone remembers the high end nyc restaurant scene from 5+ years ago ,knows that most high end places these days are only high end based on the high end prices they charge , the scene got more modern but the quality and service are lacking and a true rip off , I was by Mike's 2 times in past 2 years and we were completely disappointed and felt we got ripped off and left even the food that wasn't edible, somehow people still rave about him

High end meat restaurant's wasn't about raw egg yolks ,raw tartare ,sushi , pizza,fleatbread,please pass the beef sir

see that where i disagree, part of the expensive price is the plating the way things are presented the very expensive ingredients they use like Truffle, Dry aged meat, these things are very expensive.
the problem is when restaurants that serve u OK food for the price of high end places, i dont mind spending $200 + on a meal if its A+++

When were you last at shallots?

Over a year ago.

My unpopular opinion is that both Shallot's and La Gandola (LA) are overrated and stand out due to lack of better options in their respective locations. But in terms of NYC comparisons, they are both like Abigaels (fine dining but lacking elements to bring them over the top).

Comparing Shallots to Abigaels is a sin.

I think that the meat restaurants are OK. The dairy restaurants are pretty mediocre and that's being generous.

Yup. Dairy is horrific. If it weren't for the meat ones we have, Teaneck would be worse than... Atlanta.

Agreed. Mocha Bleu and Shelley's need to turn it around, and Rabbica is supposedly good, but is too small to really be on the map.

Sammys food is generally fine, but the service is horrendous for a counter service place. Like comically bad.

We agree on Sammy's.  Perhaps the worst service I've ever encountered. It's almost as if they're doing us a favor to sell us food.  Mocha Bleu is not a distant second.

Always been a big fan of Sammy's bagels.  The Teaneck Road ones are better?

But only uncut bagels are kosher.

I thought shallots was substantially overrated and expensive for what it was. We'll have to agree to disagree. If I'm dropping $250 for a dinner for 2, I have a certain expectation that Shallot's did not meet, but Mike's and etc always have.

Wow the wiki really needs work. First trying to make sure I have a list of all places and tried to categorize them in one of 4 categories: high end, mid-tier (has waiter service), low end (no waiter service but enough seating to not just be a takeout place), takeout. Please comment if I'm missing anything or if you disagree on how I classified something, specifically on the ones with red question marks, as I've never been to those.

Meat
ETC. - high end
Nobo - high end
Estihana - mid-tier
The Humble Toast - mid-tier
Dougies - mid-tier
Teaneck Doghouse - mid-tier / sports bar
Noah's Ark - mid-tier
Sender's Smoke Joint - mid-tier
Shnitzel+ - low end
Chickies - takeout/some seats
Sababa - ?
Yalla Teaneck - takeout/some seats
Chopstix - takeout


Pareve
Sushi Metsuyan - mid-tier
Rock n' Roll Sushi - takeout/some seats


Dairy
Mocha Bleu - mid-tier
Shelley's - mid-tier
Rabica - mid-tier
Sammy's - low end
Lazy Bean - low end
Poppy's - low end (although looks like a classic pizza place)
Dunkin' Donuts - low end
EJ's - classic pizza place
Pizza Crave - ?
Little Italy - classic pizza place (inside grocery store)
