Now that it has a name, no longer T.B.D., I'm starting this thread.

Because I want my name next to it. Ask the admins to change the title of the last one.
Why not mayo?

TBD is a much better name than Lincoln. Would sooner see it named Gettysburg.

He started the last one, too. So he gets no advantage out of this.

Seriously? I had no idea this was considered a status symbol around these parts. I should be starting more topics then.

Starting the Sam Sifton thread really changed my life.

I for one am disappointed that Benno isn't doing something fancier, but I will try it anyways.

ok so then maybe what I was snidely trying to point out is that starting a restaurant thread consisting entirely of the name of the restaurant is pointless.

Hey you, get your mind out of the gutter.

I just figured, Well, if they're giving it a car's name . . .

You dirty [young] man!


BTW: I'm trying to figure out how to merge in the new system. Not that I merged well under the old. But I'm trying.

ETA: sonofabitch,* it worked!

Far be it from me to question, but "Lincoln" doesn't strike me as "Italianish."


How about "Abe is Italian"? :D

I must say, when I think of Lincoln, a slap up dinner is not the first thing which comes to mind.

Better to name a restaurant after him than a theater.

(Before someone else says this, good thing the word "Center" intervenes in "Lincoln Center Theater".)

But you'll notice that (unlike Lincoln) nobody's named a car after Kennedy.
