The members of the collective of http://nomasvirus.com/ are going to make a trip to NY, and this serves as a reference to know what types of restaurants to direct us, thanks for the genius information, I hope it goes well, to our Stomach equal (laughs)

This is the laziest list out of all of them.  Almost all dishes are from within 2 blocks of each other. Way too many expensive tasting menus. Nothing in UWS at all? Nothing in Harlem? Nothing in Bronx? Come on, what intern did you pay to rush this through. Very disappointing.

Shouldn't this be titled the 100 best NEW dishes & drinks in NYC? Because everything on the list came about in the last year, AFAICT.
