  • Out to Lunch

    Celestial is a joke. When I asked for a mignonette sauce to go with my oysters on the half shell, the waiter acted as if I was speaking in tongues. The others deserve to be on the list, save the Palace which has had a chef change. There are much better sources for food ratings starting with this blog and adding Zagat and more.

    • Julie

      Thanks for the compliment! I am guessing that the ratings were compiled before Salazar left– I’ll be curious to see if it’s on the list next year. I was incredibly surprised to see the Celestial on the list.

      • Joe in Montgomery

        Julie, I wish Celestial would update and upgrade their menu. The room and view are really great, but the menu seems to have stopped about 1972.

  • Mary Beth O’Hara

    And when I asked for ketchup to put on my food, the waiters all poured it on my head.
