lunch at Second Avenue Deli - a place we have meant to go for several years (we usually do Katz's but had been to the old 2nd Ave and felt bad about the old guy getting killed so when his son opened up at a new location we kept saying "we should go and try it, even though it 's kosher")
so we walked across town - and saw some things along the way worth noting- it was a Jewish-y afternoon I guess-
ah, the bar mitzvah boy- LOL
we get to the deli-
OK maybe it is me but this was the tile in the restroom- LOL- I just don't see the goys putting food words all over their bathroom walls- LOL
a display in the salad case-
on the front door the story of the robbery and murder- big reward has not brought any info unfortunately - a tragedy - really - not in the ironic way - this was supposed to be a really good guy...
on the way home as we crossed Lex- heading west and got a good view of the beautiful Chrysler Building
we stopped in Greeley Park as the weather continues sunny and warm - and we enjoyed the last full day of NYC parks for this trip...
for dinner we met "Larno" at a place in the east village right near Degustation- very frenchy called Calliope - I had the eggs mayonnaise starter and the steak with a side of zucchini crudo (which was fab by the way)
Arno brought a bottle of excellent champagne and then we bought a Gevery which showed really well-
we basically closed the place (as is our habit when the four of us are together) and went back to our room for a last spectacular view from our night time terrace-
tomorrow- home to ORD then dinner with friends on Wednesday, company for the weekend - a concert on Sunday night and next week leaving for our China BIG trip...
