Has anyone been to the new bistro Astor (on Bleecker
and Bowery) since the new chef was hired about two
weeks ago? Is there a new menu? Please advise.
Just went to Astor last Friday with mixed but overall
pretty good results. Good diver scallop with celeriac
ravioli appettizer, skippable cumin crusted tuna on
escarole, good duck breast with soggy duck confit
streudl, and a wonderful bitter chocolate molten center
cake topped with a shortbread cookie and ice cream. We
are planning on returning for the chocolate cake at
