I had brunch this morning at Buddy's, 120 Hudson Street, in Tribeca. Cool place that is exactly the kind of restaurant I would want to own. Tribeca is a very cool neighborhood full of the young (rich) and hip. Very good food at reasonable prices by NYC standards.
Going to dinner and will be hanging out in the East Village tonight. Luzzo's is supposed to have the best pizza in the city or so a couple locals have told me. I'm going to find out.
I went to the Gotham Comedy Club last night and the bar tender - a life long New Yorker - told me the best food is in the East Village and he was nice enough to give me several recommendations. So the East Village it is tonight.
