From Right This Way, the Fodor's Blog:
If you were the Republican national committee and needed to get the list of the best restaurants in NYC who would you ask? Rudolph Guliani, of course. Here's Guliani's top 10 list for the city, and boy what a lot of variation we have here, let's see, a steak place, a steak place, and a steak place, and a steak place, and an Italian joint, and... hey look, a pizza place. The guy has only one French restaurant on there!
Don't use it as your list of must do's in New York, but I'm betting that they're all pretty good eats. By the way, Guiliani says you can use his name when you make your reservation, you just need to sound like him or his secretary ;-)
