La Luncheonette report

Jeremy Osner | Sep 11, 1998 09:44 AM

My wife's being on a diet has put a crimp in my eating
out lately; but last night I managed to slip off by
myself for a quiet dinner at La Luncheonette, on 10th
Ave. and 18th Street.

The food there really blew my mind -- I had an
asparagus vichyssoise and linguine with wild mushrooms
and basil, and everything tasted _just right_. The
glass of sauvignon blanc I ordered was a little
disappointing. I skipped dessert; with tax and tip it
cost $30.

Service is friendly, and the decor is nice; overall I
recommend it highly. One thing that seemed a little
unusual was the number of organ meats dishes on the
menu -- like nearly half the entrees, if I'm
remembering correctly, featured organ meats. I can't
remember going to a restaurant that had more than maybe
one or two such dishes.
