The slider crawl is off.. I want to go to dinner tonight at some place that shopped at the greenmarket this afternoon.. Some place that is reasonably priced..Below a Bluehill for example...I want it to be American or French.. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have never been for dinner.. That could be a good idea.. What about something like cookshop or little owl.. Has anyone been there this "spring"

Avoid Cookshop at all costs. I like Little Owl but you will wait. And wait. And there is nowhere to wait but the sidewalk which in this weather is not so attractive.

Colin Alveras of Tasting Room is there ALL the time, as is Peter Hoffman of Savoy. (Just off the top of my head, and with no dissing of others implied).
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

Hearth. They shop at the greenmarket every day that it's open.

Hearth: of course. But I don't think of Hearth as inexpensive. Or Tasting Room since it moved, for that matter.

I want to like Savoy, really, but it has consistently disappointed over the last few years. I think it used to be better.

Good call on that. Applewood, too.

You've probably already gone to dinner, but Marlowe & Sons in Williamsburg.

Haha.. Bonito broth, I just looked at your photo and it made me laugh.. I went to Telepan tonight.. Not a big fan.. Our decision was based on proximity to our home.. In retrospect. we should have done the slider crawl...
