(June 9, 2008). For us, this is the NYC restaurant that we try to visit on our two week-long visits to NYC each year. Danny Meyer’s concept of friendly service combined with the always appealing menu never ceases to delight.
Today was no exception. The calamari were cooked to perfection — more fish fewer breadcrumbs. The red oak leaf salad with grated cheese was tossed with a wonderful Dijon vinaigrette. Varian’s usual–tuna burger with Asian slaw and pickled ginger- was as good as ever; and Gary’s real burger the best of its genre.
The only quibble is that his mountain of French fries were just too much for the plate.
