Leonti’s seemed the wrong pitch at this time in that location.

The bar at Forlini’s was an oasis in that neighborhood, but the news led me to discover that Winnie’s (which was just around the corner) re-opened at 58 East Broadway last year. I missed that.

Teresa's, the Polish diner in Brooklyn Heights, is closed after 31 years.  The owners are retiring from the restaurant business.  I was always able to get a decent enough meal there.

Yup, closed 4 days ago. Our go to Delivery since we live 2 blocks away. She still owns the building and the 2 adjacent ones. And the liquor store in one of them. It was less than it used to be, but what it used to be filled a void.

Didn't she die in Sicily in 1947 when they bombed her husband's car during their honeymoon?

And... Fairway.

Off to Wegman's this afternoon.  Fairway's hasn't been that good in awhile anyway.  Hopefully, Wegman's can be a good substitute for major shoppings, requiring parking.

Nah, not that great.  Better off at Whole Foods or Net Cost - there's a pretty new one with a lot of parking.

i like wegmans for certain things..  There is value there.. Get the app, get the coupons people say. I don't like a lot of their shit is their brand and they don't have too many options on things.  International, not so much... But, you can get pork for .99 cents a pound and I buy chicken cutlets for 1.99 a pound and they have cardoons and the vegetables are cheap, well some of them.. But, i mean, all I really buy is protein and vegetables, flour, spices and grains for the most part.. So, I cant speak for the fucking 90 aisles I haven't walked down..  Seafood section is good, i like there scallops and squid and mussels. 


Ason, I keep planets in orbit.

At Teresa’s I had the first eggs Benedict I didn’t make myself. Its hollandaise had to be from a powder, but the lazy pleasure launched my late-nineties eggs Benedict posse and my few dozen reviews and my NYT feature and Unwrapped segment. All now lost in time, like their great tripe soup.

And Fairway was my introduction to great cheeses in Manhattan. And the end of a second date that led to a wonderful long relationship (though she would escort me as I ate my way up and down the Atlantic Antic, yet insist on just a chicken sandwich for herself later).

We were not impressed.

And now it seems we can go back to Fairway (as mediocre as it may be, I still like it better), as they deny that they’re closing. I choose to believe.
