The restaurant hall of fame as far as I’m concerned

Since I just mentioned Tastee Diner, it’s a good time to link to The Restaurant Hall of Fame as far as I’m concerned, a record of some of my favorite places as of 2002. I’ll probably never get around to updating the page, but if I did, I’d replace Cha Am with Ruen Pair, just outside Berkeley in Albany, CA, the best Thai restaurant I’ve ever been to. And while we’re talking Albany, the best Chinese restaurant I’ve ever been to is there too: China Village, a Sichuan glory. Probably even better now that Sichuan peppercorns are legal again. For haute cuisine in Paris, L’Astor. Arthur Bryant’s easily takes the barbecue crown from Redbone’s. I hate to say it, but as much as I like eating in Madison, so far no place here cracks my all-time list.

    Glad to know those peppercorns are back — I have to say I was unaware they were banned in the first place, but the more pepper the better.
