So, my friend Alex called me up *raving* about this new restaurant call Five Points on Great Jones St., E. Lafayette St. "It was great, everybody loved their dishes, even my friend who only ordered a salad had a great salad."
Then I got this email from her and I quote:
restaurant. i had fried chicken in a buttermilk batter - it was sweetish.
came w/a smokey pureed squash. was supposed to come w/brussel sprouts, but
i asked for sub of spinach instead, so came w/very tasty garlic sauteed
spinach. and the 'tini was superb, altho the glass was chipped, but that
happens all the time to me!"
Ok, so, I did tell her all about Chowhound and sent her the referral but until she wends her way over to these posts I did not want any of you to be deprived of a possibly delightful chowing experience!! (Check it out and report back, natch, as I plan to do :-)
