It's always a fun week when there's a truly epic takedown in the week's restaurant reviews. For us that is, not the restaurant staff now on damage control.

On Serious Eats we usually look over our bad meals for a simple reason: we'd rather spend our time telling people where to go than where not to. The exceptions come when a lauded chef or restaurant disappoints, or when a meal is so bad, so "I should be getting combat pay for eating this food" awful, that we can't help but erect a warning sign.

So today we're asking you to let it all out: your worst restaurant meal in New York, high-class or low, that no one else should ever have to eat. Let us know in the comments.
