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

Aldea's food is obviously great, and I don't think too adventurous - duck rice is pretty much present all over Chinatown (this is just much better). But you risk being sat somewhere where the decor kind of sucks (say upstairs in the back), and you're left with not much more than what's on the proverbial plate to look at, or perhaps excite. I would go for the Chef's counter at Aldea, or somewhere else personally.

My advice comes from a similar situation on a double date - my wife's friend (she was at the MF Bite Club dinner) was meeting a date, and we picked Aldea. We were taken upstairs, and it was dead, would have been bad. So we requested the tables facing the kitchen, but not on the counter. Had much more energy downstairs, was a very fun dinner, and food wasn't too challenging - everyone ordered a different dish in fact.

I think it's this one.


As for the question, it's a no-brainer. I agree with the suggestion that La Lunchonette may seem strange to a member of today's youth - and the brains are always on the menu, although if she doesn't speak French she may never know.


Also, location aside, La Lunchonette is a bit drab and gloomy isn't it?
