I was very touched to see this huge pile of flowers for justice Scala's death. Sort of reminded me of when Lady Di passed away.
Samantha Montgomery placed flowers outside of the Supreme Court on Sunday after Justice Antonin Scalia's death.

I came in here one morning and basically never left. Behind a tiny unassuming storefront is a real community, with the same baristas every day who get to know their customers and run arts, indie publishing and music events when they're not at work (and sometimes when they are). I just wanted to get that part out before I started talking about the food. You may be scared at first by the thought of vegan muffins, but hidden behind the fridge is a tiny kitchen where they make the most incredible breakfast bowls with scrambled egg and cheddar, fresh plum tomato,sliced avocado, black beans, homemade chipotle salsa - if you want you can get toast or tuck it all into a burrito... and I haven't yet gotten to the grits, yogurt and granola, rolled oats, and grilled cheese sandwiches with all the stuffings (yes they have meat)... Need I even mention the wifi and the fact that I would rather work here than at home any day. And I live half a mile away.

THIS IS NOT A POST OFFICE! Don't come here to mail a package or buy stamps. This is a postal distribution center. Looks like all you can do here is pick up a package.

I used to love this place (a decade ago), but boy has it ever changed. They have a new sign, I'm guessing the ownership is new. We went tonight and it tasted like diner food. My French onion soup arrived almost instantly and was burned of the top, it seems an overzealous torch was applied to cheese that seemed to have been melted on top a while back, perhaps yesterday even... The lamb burger was overcooked (well done when I asked for medium rare) and the meat so over-spiced it was hard to choke down. the bun was hard and cold, I didn't even want to taste it. The fries were skinny and tasteless, if I had to guess I'd say they were poured frozen from a buy-in-bulk bag into the fryer. They weren't tasty enough to have been real potatoes recently. My husband's chicken cordon bleu ($28.50) literally looked like something you could get at a diner, right down to the upside-down-cup-shaped mound of orange rice. Literally everything except the bread looked and tasted like a reheated frozen TV dinner, not like something made fresh for us. Even the drinks, which should be easy - I got a Pom-Fizz which is supposed to be made fizzy with champagne or sparkling wine, I forget which - either they forgot it or they used something old, because it was completely flat. It was good actually -but it was flat, and the maraschino cherry at the bottom was the cheap kind, not the kind you find in a drink from a quality cocktail establishment. We had to ask for water, and ketchup, and my husband's second glass of wine, so i'd call the service unremarkable. It was not crowded, 7pm on a Monday on the first day back from a blizzard. They were quick, I'll say that for them - so I guess if you are in a hurry before the theatre this might be just the ticket. Bumping them up to 3 stars for that, and the high ceilings which are unusual. Also - the decor has changed. It really used to have a lovely bistro-authentic look that made me feel like I was back in Paris. They've changed something - painted, reupholstered, tried to update it somehow - and the yellow walls, orange banquettes, yellow-orange pillars etc. make it hard to remember that true antique-y bistro feel. They obviously chose a decorator "on the cheap" or did it themselves - a mistake, for it does not look authentic or even nice anymore. The restaurant is certainly spacious and you do not get that claustrophobic feeling many other restaurants induce. I guess if it is competing with like a TGI Friday's for tourists in Times Square, perhaps it does OK. I was hoping for the Parisian bistro I remembered from the 90's and 00's tonight. But, I moved to Brooklyn in and I prefer farm to table now anyway, LOL.

Dr. Pitaro is a great doctor who actually cares. He's been my doctor for over 20 years. Wow.

As a New Yorker passing through, have to say I was truly surprised by the very high quality of the food here. Although I didn't try the pizza, I watched him make it fresh in front of my face along with some incredible looking calzone. We ordered an Italian hoagie and a meatball parm sandwich lthey were both incredible.
