Sneakeater Posted April 19, 2011 Share Posted April 19, 2011 So next Tuesday I'm taking some Gullible Young Woman to see Karol Armitage at the Joyce. For dinner after, I'm thinking of two places: Aldea and La Luncheonette. Aldea, obviously, is one of the best and most interesting restaurants in New York. But maybe too interesting for a Gullible Young Woman? La Luncheonette? To be honest, I haven't been in years -- and didn't think it was earth-shaking back in the day. But I liked it well enough (as I keep saying, this is my favorite kind of food). Is it still any good? Who knows? It has the advantage of being basic enough that the food won't scare my Young Female Friend. (Although there may be protests if they're serving brains as a special.) And it's always impressive to take someone to some desolate out-of-the-way corner and bring them into a place that, though unprepossessing on the outside, turns out to be cozy and even kind of romantic on the inside. But 10th Ave. in the high teens isn't as out-of-the-way as it used to be. Now it's perilously close to the Meatpacking District. Which should I choose? 12 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
