Steak and ssäms continue to rule the reviews — with a white truffle thrown in for good measure.
• Saving <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/lonesome-dove-western-bistro/index.html>Lonesome Dove</a> for the <a href=http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/?p=135>blog</a>, Bruni checks into another meatery, Harry's Steak. The bone-in steak "spoke to the timeless glories of aged prime beef," but the menu's saddled with "clever tweaks."

• Andrea Strong checks in on Lonesome Dove (again) and is way more impressed with the kangaroo nachos than her <a href=http://www.nypost.com/seven/10182006/entertainment/food/messed_western_food_steve_cuozzo.htm>boy at the <em>Post</em></a> was.

• At <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/stk/index.html>STK</a>, Alan Richman eyes the hotties "who look like they're barely past puberty" and shares in <a href=http://nymag.com/daily/food/2006/10/the_lavatorial_luxuries_of_stk.html>our fascination with the restrooms.</a> "If only the food — admittedly great-looking — were as flavorsome as the customers."

• Dana Bowen visits <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/momofuku-ssam-bar/index.html>Momofuku Ssäm Bar</a>, and after raving about the late-night menu <a href=http://nymag.com/daily/food/2006/09/ssms_ssecret_chefs_table.html>we first reported</a>, hints that it may see the light of day.

• As if <a href=http://nymag.com/restaurants/features/21977/index.html>Danny Meyer</a> was starving for publicity, Moira Hodgson reassures us that <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/tabla/index.html>Tabla</a> is "one of the city's great restaurants." Something to do with chef Floyd Cardoz's new cookbook? [<a href=http://www.nyobserver.com/20061030/20061030_Moira_Hodgson_culture_diningaround-2.asp>NYO</a>]
• Paul Adams schools upwardly mobile <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/I-chin/index.html>I-Chin</a>: "Going upscale involves more than buying buff-colored cloth napkins and hiring servers to assiduously refold them at every opportunity."

• Augie splurges on a white truffle at <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/gotham_bar_and_grill/index.html>Gotham</a> — presumably not as pricey as <a href=http://nymag.com/arts/all/approvalmatrix/23167/index.html>Morimoto's $10,500 highbrow-despicable truffle</a>.
