DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

M

att Prentice writes
about "Dining In
The United States"
. . . which he features in the
recent newletter of his Sebas-
tian's Restaurant/Raw Bar in
Somerset Mall, W Big Beaver
in Troy.
"Unfortunately, there are
many cities that I have not
had the pleasure of visiting,
but I have enjoyed many fine
restaurants and I hope if
you're in the area you will
give them a try.
"New York has an almost
unending list of fine
restaurants to try — some day
I hope to enjoy a majority of
them. But if you're like me,
you'll probably have only one
or two nights in town. Two
sure bets are An American
Place and Lutece. Larry
Forgionne's American Place
is unbelievable. He searches
the country looking for the
finest ingredients available —
and serves nothing made
with imported goods. His food
is simple but ingenious. Try
the peanut barbequed
chicken, loin of lamb with
spinach and goat cheese, and-
peach pan dowdy.
"Lutece is the best French
restaurant in New York. An-
dre Soltner, the owner/chef,
has received every major
award given in our industry.
This is a perennial five-star
restaurant with one of the
finest wine lists in the coun-
try. The food is flawless and
very complex. Patrons
without knowledge of menu
French could have a problem
with the excellent waitstaff
that unfortunately put up
with ignorance from regular
customers only.

"Both of these restaurants
are expensive. Expect to
spend $175 at An American
Place and over $250 at Lutece
including tax and tip for two.
Two other suggestions! Stop
by the Windows of the World
for a glass of wine before din-
ner. They have to my
knowledge the largest cellar
in the country and the view
from 110 stories high is
unbelievable. After dinner
and maybe a play, stop by
Tavern on the Green in Cen-
tral Park for a nightcap.
Afterwords, take a buggy ride
through the park — it's a
wonderful way to end the day!
In addition, Tavern on the
Green is a great place to go
for dinner on Sunday when
most restaurants are closed.
"Chicago, like New York, is

loaded with fine places to eat.
My two favorites are La Per-
roquet and Le Francais.
Although I am not partial to
French food, both are so good
I can't resist them when in
Chicago.
"Le Francais may be the
best restaurant in the coun-
try. Its owner/chef, Jean Ban-
chet, is considered No. 1 by
the most experts' ratings. His
menu is written in Pure
French, but don't worry, the
waiters bring each item by
your table for a visual feast
before ordering. The only pro-
blem is that it is extremely
hard to make up your mind.
The finest meal I have ever
had was here. My wife loved
her food so much that she
refused to drink any wine
because she didn't want to
wash away the marvelous
taste.
"Le Perroquet is tradi-
tionally French. You enter the
restaurant via an antique
elevator. Upon entering, you
feel like you walked into an
Old European restaurant —
and you have. Both
restaurants have five stars
and probably always will.
"In San Francisco, my two
favorites are Stars and Er-
nies. Jeremiah Tower, the
owner/chef of Stars, has one of
the most interesting cooking
that I have ever seen. He uses
the abundance of fresh
California produce in concoc-
tions never seen until recent-
ly. The sign of a truly fine chef
is the incorporation of his
style by others and this is now
being done across the country.
In addition to the fine food,
the restaurant has a
casualness about it that is
very refreshing for a fine din-
ing place.
"Ernies is a classic French
restaurant in the business
district that has been a five-
star house for years. The food
is excellent, the wine list
super, and the service is the
finest that I have ever had
anywhere. This is a great
place to be if you want to be
treated like royalty."
Matt also writes a personal
note to his customers at
Sebastian's . . . in another sec-
tor of his newsletter . . .
"Throughout the past 18
months Sebastian's has
undergone many changes.
Although many of these
changes have been positive,
some regretably have not.
The majority of these changes
have been in the executive
chefs position. A search for
the right individual has pro-
ved to be a difficult task.
Although our kitchen staff is
