Micromanage My Life


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I've been frantically scouring for the past day or so. Oh look! Craft! Hearth! Hm. I'll keep at it.

I'm thinking I'll grab a rez at Adda since I've heard some good things, and at least have that as a backstop.

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 t

This is awesome.

To add to what Sneak said, look for restaurants that have built out more outdoor space than they ever had indoor, and are also doing indoor dining. Some places have more capacity than they used to. Off the top of my head, Via Carota, Anton's, and Don Angie are all like this.

Thanks for that added color.

I'm convincing myself that a little LIC adventure will be fun -- Dutch Kills for drinks, Adda for spice. Should be an excellent evening. (But yeah, still gonna keep plowing through Resy on the daily.)

Then, having sold yourself on LIC (which I think sounds great, BTW), you can REALLY agonize when something more conventionally appealing comes up later this week.

I did that exact same evening in reverse last August. It was lovely. I will say that the outdoor dining at Adda is not the most picturesque given the street that it's on (though that was a long time ago and they may have improved the buildout since then). The food was fantastic though.

Ha. Already been through one iteration of that, debating if a 4:45 seating at Jean-Georges would trump this plan. (Final verdict, after thorough consultation with the missus:  no, we stick with LIC.)

We’re both fully vaxxed, and given the current forecast for rain, we’re doing the indoor dining. (Gasp!)

And okay, if anyone's really REALLY invested in this story now... don't suppose anyone knows any hacks, beyond setting up multiple Resy accounts (which I imagine means multiple cell phone numbers), to book Dutch Kills for drinks on the same night as Adda. I mean, seriously. (Cuz I'm not gonna be all the way out there and NOT go to Dutch Kills.)

I guess I need to embrace my long-dead inner-Luddite and actually call. Hmph.

And the punchline:

The number for Dutch Kills gets me to a voice mailbox that hasn't been set up. So no one picking up and no way to leave a message. Hahahahahaha.

It's all cognitive dissonance! Ludditism led me to forgo Resy for the phone, but then the phone made me abandon Ludditism to hit them up with an IG DM. Mind blown.

Thanks for coming along on this trip! haha. (Full disclosure -- 30 year anniversary of our first date.)
