The Tin Building, By George (Jean-Georges, That Is)

Recommended Posts

I think Pete hits it spot on today.

Usable, no need to rush there, no need to make a special trip to eat in a restaurant there (might you even be better off at the Fulton?) though you can have some good food.

And it doesn't smell.

As if that's a bad thing.

You ever been near the Fulton fish market in its heyday? It fucking stunk,.

I hope they pay you when they make A Total Shitshow Of Savings their new slogan.

I paid my first visit to The Tin Building yesterday, about a 2.5 mile round-trip, so a good exercise walk - though I sure wish our lower east side waterfront wasn't so fucking horrendous. I didn'

20 years ago I would walk from 6th Street down to the streets between Houston and Delancey for a really quiet night out. Nobody around. A few peaceful bars open.

He makes it sound like you can DEFINITELY do better at The Fulton.

I haven't been in a long time (and we all know what happens to JGV restaurants over time).  But I used to think it was one of the most underappreciated restaurants in New York.

It read as if JGV inc. spent so much in advertising that the editor made Pete sleep in the tin building until he finds something nice to say. 

Fair but I somehow still like the Tin Building’s manufactured “charm.” I had a very nice meal at the shellfish thing although expensive. The rotisserie chicken is closer to French standards than most spots in NYC. I can buy bordier butter easily and some of the La Boite and confitures that I like.  There are a few nice Asian ingredients that are convenient to get there as well. I guess I don’t think of the restaurants as the draw any more than I do for Eataly. They’re serviceable if you’re hungry while shopping.  Butcher seems solid so far.
