my how the not-so-mighty have fallen to the force of the marketplace.
i poked my head into the formerly yuppity ROOM SERVICE CAFE today on hudson street after i looked in and noted that the $8 bahn mi sandwich was nowhere to be seen their wall board. they said, "we took it off the menu." being a jerk i said,"oh really?, i never got to try that."
ha! -- so there was the reason why our all seeing master bahn mi compiler rogue never added this place to the list. he knewww!
the good news is the RSC dropped all the prices across the menu and are now totally reasonable. large specialty sandwiches are $6, other interesting finger sandwiches are $2-4. everything else on the menu like soup, granola, various coffee/juice drinks and red bull(huh?) is $1-3.
later on in the morning i got the excellent veggie bahn mi & a fresh sugar cane drink at our friends on broome street for $4.75 total. fyi--they had the fish(sardine) bahn mi on the special board today.
