Overheard by a friend dining out at Si the other night…
Customer – What beers do you have?
Waiter – Heineken, Corona, Sam Adams. Let me know quickly which you would like, we only have two of each.
WTF! OK, I probably got the beers wrong but the point is if you can’t stock your bar anymore then you are in serious trouble. Of course my track record is mediocre when it comes to declaring the death of a restaurant. Sensi, thankfully, is still chugging along and I hear they are still living up to and exceeding expectations for delivering great food. Bookbinder’s is slightly changed. The Taxin’s fired the management (no great loss) and are trying to keep it going.
