I read a thread about a couple of new restaurants possibly opening, around 5th Ave/11st or 9st.
. is it possible writers (and the Times et al) are referring to a reno at 5th Ave and about 7st? I walked by the site a couple of months ago and chatted with a (fellow) Brit working there who said he's opening a French restaurant (a Brit with a Chip Shop is okay, but ...)
. as per another thread, I wholeheartedly agree with those who think we have a wasteland (a la 200+ TV channels with nothing to watch) of restaurants in the Slope ... my litmus test occurs after a long workday, when my wife & I think, "Where shall we eat?", and can only come up with lukewarm ideas (although we've enjoyed 200 5th before the loud bar types arrive, and when the Speckled Hen beer is cheap ...)
