New York - for a special occasion = Babbo, hands down. For a meal only a true carnivore can love = Peter Luger's. For "classic New York dining" = Gotham Bar & Grill. For an everyday neighborhood place with my family = Gennaro's.

Fort Lauderdale - River House

And, sorry, I just can't agree about Sassafraz in Toronto. Maybe Scaramouche.
