From the little blurbs in the 6 Aug NY Times (attributed
to Eric Asimov):
"In many ways, Gotham is the quintessential New York
restaurant, a vast comfortable space that manages to
offer intimacy too."
Sorry Eric, but the terms "comfortable space" and
"intimacy" do not seem to be associated with
qunitessence of NY eating in my book. Unless he means
intimacy with the people at the adjoining tables.....
(I havn't been to the Gotham yet, so this is not meant
to critcize them.)
