|Sausage stuffed pears at Elsewhere|
I have come limping back to my cousin's web side, and must make amends for keeping quiet when I went to theres.
First, there was Vinegar Hill House. I went to there. The cheese board, the cast iron chicken ( succulent, good enough to get again), and a candle in my unmemorable dessert. There was Sigmund Pretzel Shop--one of the very first postings in this blog. I went to there. Sunflower seed pretzel, cheese pretzel, warm cinnamon sugar pretzel, a girl behind the counter bored by my indecision. There was Vandaag. We went to there. An assortment of pickled things, none of which were among the stranger or more interesting Vandaag purports to make. A burger, okay. A seat too close to a window on a freezing Winter evening. A surprisingly delicious ice cream sandwich. There was Char No. 4. I went to there. They were out of the shrimp and grits, and I wasn't much in the mood for anything else. Except some 3 oz pours of whiskey, and some fried balls of something kindly brought to us on the house. Buttermilk Channel. I went to there. Again. It was New Year's Eve, and they let me take home a balloon. And gave me a glass of pink champagne just for being me. The Duck meatloaf continues to be excellent. There was Momofuku. We went to there. Pure bliss.

Fortunately, we already have plans to go to there. Of particular interest to me: pickles, hummus, smoked eggplant bruschetta, falafel-wrapped meatballs, grilled calamari, brick chicken.

325 Bowery at 2nd St.
I want to go to there -- mainly for breakfast. They have a whole section on their breakfast menu called "Build-a-Biscuit." Sam Sifton says that the biscuits -- "salty, airy hosts" for delectable toppings such as sausage and pepper-jack cheese, make you want to hunt ducks.
