As I'm sure Suzanne knows as a frequent Carnegie Hall attendee, Molyvos is between 55th & 56th (not that it matters -- but if we can't make pointless corrections on the internet, what can we do?).


Well, it does matter to me because I like to be accurate whenever possible. So, thanks! I’ve made the correction.

Anytime I'm within a block I call it on target.     As a very drunk neighbor in the country once told us when we offered him a ride down the hill, "Hell, I can crawl from here."

Doesn't matter to me if it's a place I know well; I know where it is. So in this case, no blood, no foul. OTOH, if it's a place I've never been to before, and time is tight, I might be annoyed if I went looking for it and it wasn't where I'd been told it was.* Or where I remembered it being, if I'd only been once before. Then I'd be mad at myself for remembering wrong. (That's one time, I will admit, that a smartphone is useful. Still not enough incentive, though. :P )

 

*And then there was my first date with Paul: in addition to not leaving work until an hour after our appointed meeting time, he completely misremembered the location of the restaurant. Reader, I forgave him.

 

 

After some time.

 

 

 

But it took a while.

Memory test.

 

There used to be a good (and old) Mexican taco place, tiny storefront, in the 30s or 40s, just off of 8th or 9th Avenue.  It was rated as good as Tehuitzingo over on 10th.  Like up some stairs, and you were in a tiny store.

 

Anyone?

I use to go to a place that was right across the street from Sullivan Street Bakery

 

edit to add, so like east of sullivan on 47th street

Tulcingo makes the best cemita I've had in town.  Tehuitzingo's tortas are better than Tulcingo's tortas, though.  (I lived a block away from them for a year and probably ate 25 of each.)

 

Tulcingo's guacmole is better than Tehuitzingo's.

Is there a new(ish) Chinese skewer type place somewhere in the east village.  Or am I misremebering?

I didn't know that Chinese had gendered articles (joke).
