Just read all the Otto stuff and want to say that I loved Grimes' article on Howard Johnson's in Times Square. It was so warm and funny and loving towards the funkiness of the place. He's an enthusiast of the best sort. I also continue to enjoy his book on cocktails, bought as a proof several years ago. Truthfully I'm very happy he's back...his writing just transports me, whether or not the review is good or not.
