Last year we pled devotion to Acacia Mid-town, our 2010 Restaurant of the Year, where chef Dale Reitzer and a team of kitchen talents continue to crank out some of the city's best-executed dinners. “We gave him plenty of love last year,” Bosher says, “but I actually feel like Dale Reitzer has gotten better and better and deserves some acknowledgment this year as well. I had some issues with seasonings last year, but my past few meals there have really been off the charts. As much as I love Pescados China Street, no one beats Dale when it comes to fish and all-around experience. Dessert and cocktails there are also incredible.”
