Been to about half of that list and all are excellent.

Lobo's just announced they are closing.


I've been to many on the list as well.

NiHao is the place I'm most interested in checking out among those I haven't visited.

Nihao was really good.  Something feels strange to me about paying so much for relatively small quantities of Chinese food.  But it was excellent.  Even the to-go containers were plated very fancy, I imagine once you can eat there and get the full experience it will be something pretty special.

On my bday last month, went back to La Cuchara for the first time in a couple of years. Had a really good meal. Outside area worked well.

It never even made it to Last Resort status for me.

Yeah, I worked basically across the street from it for the entire 10 years it was open.  Went zero times.

Awesome story about the owner of Ekiben volunteering to drive to Vermont so a dying customer could have tempura broccoli one last time.
