Meet Cafe - Short Report

Craig Greiner | Jun 19, 2002 03:29 PM

I had a light dinner at the cafe at Meet last night, the semi-new restaurant on Gansevoort and Washington in the meatpacking district.

Although the waitstaff did just about everything possible to prove the Zoolanderesque male model stereotype spot on, the quality and prices of the food were agreeable, even good. I'll pay an extra dollar for my pint to drink it outdoors with interesting people watching and crunchy frites, and I appreciate being served lager in a taller, narrow glass.

I chose the soppresata/gruyere/arugula paninni from a list of six, all of which looked inviting. One could argue that its hard to ruin a sandwich when you start with good ingredients, but the burger my friend ordered was perfectly cooked and tasty as well, $12 with a side of fries.

I'll go back again, if nothing else to help our waiter tie his shoes.
