I liked the article but there is a painfully antiquated Red Sox/Yankee reference in there. The writer otherwise does a very nice job but someone at the New Yorker should remind her it's not 2004 anymore.

But Alex, that's all they really have to hang their hat on; it's like 2007 never happened because they didn't have to get past the Yanks to win that one. Beating the Yanks is their mission statement.

Thanks for digressing from the wabbit food for a minute or two >;)

LOL. Seriously, though, the Spotted Pig is great, if pricey. If you go for lunch you don't need to deal with all the crowds. I haven't been to the Breslin yet but I imagine it's tasty as all get out.

[1] haha yeah it was an interesting article - interesting to read what happens behind the scenes at restaurants, but the red sox/yankee analogy was weird as hell. haven't been to eother one yet but am intrigued - lunch sounds the way to go.

She sounds cool, too. But I'm sure she's scary as hell to work for.
