I have a friend here in Rome with whom I used to play in the playground on east 35th Street longer ago than I will admit. We love to reminisce the Manhattan of our childhood. So of course I told her about the Gone but not Forgotten thread. She said she'd like to hear about restaurants that are still there even though nobody ever thinks about them any more. She was delighted when I said we'd begun going to El Parador, on east 34th, after a hiatus of decades (Italian husband loves guacamole and we can walk from our NY digs).
