but what about the pork? thats the flavor...
Bodegas are awesome for off-brand sodas.
oh, and drugs, too, I suppose.
Felt like this was a pretty fair review. Well written.
Can't tell if serious...that review set off a small shit storm.
Suicide jumper across the street this morning. Lots of cops and a film crew on our way out the door today
It echos my experience at Daniel. The experience was good, but not great. I don't yearn to go back. I still prefer TFL, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Vetri and Bouley over Daniel.
Did he stick the landing?
Agreed, although I accepted from my very first experience that there is another "class" of experience as noted in the Wells review. Even at EMP, where I personally know front of house staff, I had a very different experience at my last dinner than did the royalty seated next to us.
But the class I'm in at Daniel doesn't cut it compared with my experience at other top notch restaurants (which presumably also have a similar hierarchy). That's why I don't go back.
had a friend visit from San Francisco (used to live in NY) call me at 9 PM, said he was just getting in at JFK and wanted to know if I could grab a drink and some food since he'll be in my neighborhood. sure! he got in just before 10, we pulled up at a restaurant that just opened on my block, and ate. then a trash collector truck drove by and wafted the restaurant with stink. his comment was "it's damn humid, and that wreaks. but it's going on 10:30, and this place is packed and still seating people. I miss it here, home."
Definitely one thing that occasionally makes me hate my neighborhood. Although, I feel like I've aged fifteen years in the past two, so the lack of restaurant options at 10:30 p.m. around me is slowly becoming less annoying.
In retrospect, the NoMad was only really mediocre. Partly because I came home the next day and roasted a chicken that tasted better, and cost considerably less. However, it is a nice place to take women you are trying to sleep with, and the chairs are very comfortable.
Thats disappointing, I have been wanting to go there.
I rarely order roast chicken in a restaurant because I can so reliably make one at home that is almost always better. People try to fuck with roast chicken too much--it's a very simple dish.
You can get awesome ones at Whole Foods for $9.
