In this case, more like pining for the shtetl.

Waxman says he’s looking for another location in the same neighborhood. So maybe “done for now”?

What’s up at Le Veau D’Or? Window boarded up, looks like work going on inside. Closed Saturday lunchtime. It was open when I walked by a week or so ago.

Maybe old with this news, but the Kingsley on Ave B is done. Dropping like flies in the EV, eg The Eddy and the Wolf (that’s two).

Everyone knows a restaurant using tablecloths can no longer survive in this city. We eat like rabid dogs and have manners to match.

 

Tablecloths are very enjoyable - almost as much as cloth (as opposed to polyester) napkins.

The new Avenue C Restaurant, in the Edi & the Wolf location, has some nice-looking white napkins.  No tablecloths though.

Lucien keeps on defying the odds - always full, tablecloths, very french menu, not cheap, old skool wine list (I haven't been in years so I'm not sure if it's nice at all)

Really, really not cheap.

 

Speaking of which, I walked by Tocqueville today and looked at the menu.  Some interesting things I haven't seen before, like a lobster cassoulet with boudin noir.  But appetizers $30 and up. You're looking at $90 for three courses at dinner, before wine, tax, tip.  That's more Le Coucou than Frenchette, price-wise.

 

Lucien's appetizers are cheaper, entrees not much. Or to put it another way, Lucien is about the same price as Frenchette.
