  1. Why is the tortilla $150? How big is it? Was it busy? Did your neighbors enjoy their food?
  2. Different strokes for different folks. I’ve tried stuff from East Village; Brooklyn and DC and find it all to be pre-made, mass produced junk food/stoner food rather than something delicious or extraordinary.
  3. While I’m sure these dishes were all good (if not delicious); I just don’t understand how this is a cohesive meal? So many different ethnicities and flavor profiles...call me old fashioned but this just isn’t how I love to eat.
  4. I don’t know where this is, but people should cook more at home. This looks mediocre at best and probably cost you $50 minimum (more with drinks and tip).
  5. As a graduate not as esteemed as Aggie Chin or Aaron Silverman, I’m quite sad to hear the news. It’s all so strange that they would close it so suddenly. But I’m sure we will know the details soon enough.
  6. I just wish it was like 59,000 square feet and there were more choices and perhaps a Shaw Bijou too. There aren’t enough choices for me...
  7. That's like saying people venerate Jean Georges, Daniel Boloud or Gunther Seeger too much. it might be true. But he, and they, are deserving. Having had the pleasure of working for Frank for 6 years, his technique, flavors, attention to detail and work ethic are second to none. From his simple Oxtail Vaccinara or little pork head cheese croquettes to his more sophisticated Lobster and Oyster Navarin with Sauternes...his food is unlike any I've encountered in my travels or in my work with other chefs. i still dream of his stollen. His bread and tomato soup. His brandade. His bolognese. (I could go on).
  8. $26 for a ham sandwich might be on the pricey side. I'm not there. But if it's $26 and after eating it you are satisfied and full then I am ok with that. At Rose's Luxury, there are diminutive pastas on the menu that go for $13, $14 and $15. If I went there for dinner one night and just wanted to eat pasta...and be sated, I would probably end up having to eat two or three pastas. Which would cost anywhere from $26-$45. That is an expensive bowl (or three) of noodles, which typically comes with not much more than butter and cheese.
  9. You'd think at a French restaurant they would be more inclined to gougere rather than gouge.
  10. All the photos I've seen look great. Irvin Van Oordt is a talented cook.
