In five days, I am leaving Alphabet City after three very well-fed years, and when I leave my tiny, tiny place, I will also be leaving my favorite restaurants here -- In Vino, Terroir, Prune, Bourgeois Pig, Per Bacco, Lil Frankies, even Buenos Aires, Zum Schneider and Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shoppe.
As you can see, I'm partial to wine bars to begin with, or any place with tiny tables, flattering lighting, unexpectedly stellar specials and easy-going diners -- any suggestions for my new home, way far way in the teens and 20s on 9th Avenue? Is there any hope for me?
I'm trying not to dwell, but some incentive to pack these boxes would be amazing right about now...
