unimpressed with artichoke

mick | Apr 15, 2009 05:12 AM

Been in town 3 days now with 2 to go. Had the sicilian slice at artichoke thought it was almost unedible. A salty, thick crusty mess. Did like the scottish lox and the herring in cream sauce with onions at russ and daughters. Katz pastrami may be better than say carnegie but i wouldnt make a trip of it if i were in midtown, Truffle egg toast at inoteca just ok and although tasty the buns at momofuku saam are a bit overrated and hyped imo. mousaka at nicks terrible. Pizza at nizza terrible, ate there after arriving late sunday evening to find johns closed. I did very much enjoy the steak tartare at pigalle. Previously have had the slices at Patsys ues and Difara both delicious. also liked lombardis ,johns and grimaldi pies in past. Going to clinton street bakery this morn and hoping for some better luck the rest of the way.
