Slump

I’m in a resto slump. Have you noticed? I feel like I haven’t been out to DINE in ages. It’s probably not true but I’m not counting diners or regular spots. I’m talking about finding that new spot where they treat you like a superstar, the food is delicious and I can eat a large portion of the menu, the place has a great vibe and you’re happy to be there. Where is that place? I have a few of them in my back pocket but I haven’t found that new love, that new one that is solidly good.

And reading Eater or Grub or the NYT or any of the other well-written, well-intended NYC foodie sites doesn’t help. Places are having soft openings every minute, firing chefs, losing their lease or having splashy re-openings. It’s all very interesting. Really. I can spend an entire morning reading, scanning, trolling, and dreaming.

But what I really need to know is: where am I going to dinner tonight?

May I recommend Chubo. I don't know how allergy free it is but I love it! And the chef is a wonderful guy. I've eaten there millions of times and have always had a great experience. The chef is usually there and he always comes out and checks on you.

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog!!
And to empathise with this story. There is nothing that makes me feel worse than that kind of attitude. I have celiac, so no gluten for me. Although 9/10 places have waiters and chefs who are incredibly happy to inform, listen, and accomodate my needs.
But that tenth one? Just painful. Last time it happened to me was on an airplane when they did not have my gluten-free meal. The head of the cabin crew could not or would not understand why I more bread was not an option
