From a very fine article on the Diamond District in NYC, this little gem of culinary intelligence:
"For 58 years, 41 W. 47th St. was home to the Gotham Book Mart, a literary mecca sandwiched between diamond dealers. Since Gotham's high-profile relocation to 46th Street in 2004 (acquiescing to the swelling price of diamond district real estate, Gotham's owner, Andreas Brown, sold the five-story townhouse and bought another one two blocks away for $2 million less), 41 West now boasts a new jewelry exchange and, on the second floor, Manhattan's only Bukharan kosher eatery, Taam-Tov, where a devoted clientele of Central Asian Jews gather daily for traditional shish kebabs, platters of plov (rice pilaf), dense hummus, and thick, crusty bread."
My reaction: Whoa. Anybody been?
