While I respect it as a NY landmark and all that, the food had really not been any good in a very long time. And they were charging about 3x for a meal that was 1/5 as good as Cafe Boulud, JG, Marea, the Modern and many other spots.
1989 Canon last night. Poifect.
2500 today. Not a big day. Outdoor pool lately, which is different.

Is it that much? The people who brought it said they got it for $60.
2008 Taittinger Le Reve (Carneros). Really, really good. Right up there with some of best Champs. Not vintage Krug maybe, but easily the superior of anything from France at its price point.
Hot as hell here. Not supposed to be like this!!!!!

The movie is a classic but the moniker has not been true for at lest 40 years.
