    Dining at Airports

    Where to Eat at John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), by Patty Diez and Eater Staff, Updated May 22, 2018, on ny.eater.com.
  2. That is why I stopped calling Red Top years ago. Even if you call Red Top the night before and schedule a cab for the following morning it appears they do nothing with that information until the following morning when close to the time scheduled they send out a call for a cab to respond and wait to see if any car picks up the call. More often than not, they no-showed. I gave up and just started driving to the airport and absorbing the parking fees... that is, until Uber and Lyft came along.

    Luggage and Suitcases

  6. You could make a meal out of the Ivy City Smokehouse Board with smoked salmon, whitefish salad, smoked trout, and salmon pastrami on the brunch menu. I have. This weekend I tried the PEI Mussels steamed with the Heritage Brewing American Expedition Ale. The mussels were pleasingly plump - not a measly bugger in the batch. The ale/bacon/shallot/cream broth was good, but there was not quite enough of it. It was hard to get the mussels at the top to the broth until you eat through about half. They were not dry, per se, but they really come alive (albeit it they are surely dead) with a dunk in the broth. It comes with hand cut fries served in a metal french fry cup that looked something like this.
  7. ‘Cheers’ Said Goodbye 25 Years Ago: Raise a Toast With These 9 Essential Episodes, by Josh Wolk, May 18, 2018, on nytimes.com. It used to be Willow for us (space still waiting for new tenant). Now it is Liberty Tavern. Fireworks would be a strong contender if it were a little closer.
  8. I tried to like a post this morning and I got a pop-up dialog box with an exclamation point in a triangle followed by text which read: "Sorry, you cannot add any more reactions today." I clicked the OX box to exit the message. No heart. It was my first attempted like of the day. I swear!
  9. The Yoko Ono of Comics, on Her Own Terms, by Gal Beckerman, May 14, 2018, on nytimes.com (article titled "Raw, Honest and Not Just Ms. Crumb" in print version published May 15, 2018).
  10. The Tabard Inn claims to have opened its doors in 1922. It claims to have served afternoon tea in its early years. That makes it a restaurant.
  11. No problem walking in at 11:30am on Saturday after exploring the Rittenhouse Square Farmers' Market (which is as much a craft fair as it is a place to buy produce). Warm space. Despite the fact that the host stand is located in the middle of the second floor, they were able to greet promptly all guests arriving through two separate entrances. It did not look like it would work as well as it did. It fashions itself as a British pub so you could say it does not aspire to culinary grandeur by design. I did quite enjoy the warm roast beef sandwich with horseradish mayonnaise and a splash of gravy on toasted sourdough. The roast beef was exceedingly tender. Served with a side watercress salad on a rectangular wooden plate.
