Good Restaurant Drought

While K has been eating it up all over town, I’ve been going through what can only described as a good restaurant drought. And by good, I mean bad. I have forgotten what a wonderful meal tastes like. Other than staying in and having no appetite, the meals we have gone out for have been mediocre as of late and I find myself trying to remember our last great meal. Falai, Baboo, Enoteca Barbone, The Orchard, Blue Ribbon, Casa Mono and Joe’s Shanghai seem like distant memories. We struggled the other day to find a place in Soho the other night and ended up with boring burgers at Bar 89. I ate maybe half of mine, partly due to my stomach and partly because it just didn’t taste that good. Where will we find some more awesomeness?
