I just caught up with your top 10 restaurant list (sorry for the long delay). Next time you are in New York, try 3 of my favorites if you haven't already:

1. Aureole on the upper east side. Creative American Cuisine. One of my alltime favorites along with the Four Seasons. Sit upstairs where it is quieter.

2. La Bernadin- some of the best french seafood I have had (in the States).

3. Jean Georges in the base of the Trump building on the SW corner of Central Park for a nice lunch (french of course).


Here's a link to a first person (by an Emergency Medical Tech who was in the city on vacation) account of the events that took place when a number of NO residents tried to walk out of the city thru some of the only dry routes out.

This is egregious, racist and probably criminal. And if it isn't it should be.



The response to katrina has been horrendous and many public officials have crossed the line into egregious behavior. You should look into the events that took place on Ponchartrain Highway, where they wouldn't let people walk out of the city.

I think the comments by the General have been taken out of context and seriously misunderstood. He seemed to be saying that he understands why people are frustrated and that he gets frustrated when he's held up by the paper running out at the cash register. So it seems to me he is actually saying he can't even imagine the level of frustration that the victims of Katrina are experiencing.
