I know it's a New York institution but I haven't been there since...well I can't remember the last time I was there.

It used to be part of my dad's Saturday morning circuit, on which I accompanied him, to buy stuff to make brunch at home: Murray's (for fish), Royale Bakery on W.72nd for ribbon cookies, and then a cheese shop whose name escapes...which was where Talbot's on 2nd Ave & 79th is now....But we almost never made it home before being starved and having to go to BG for breakfast (we saved the stuff we bought for Sunday). The flypaper hanging from the ceiling was a particularly nice touch.

Can anyone bring me up to date?
