If you want to go back really far, my favorate place of all time in the Late 1970's and early 1980's was the restaurant at the Talk of the Town. Best steak ever. The French Steakhouse at the Manchebo was owned by the same owner (Ike Cohn), and it is good, but Talk of the Town was the best. I also enjoyed La Paloma. It has been closed for many years. Also, does anyone remember the Cattle Baron? It had a great salad bar.
