Restaurants that feel like home...
I must confess, given that I've lived here for 7 years, I still haven't found that one place in New York that I go to again and again and again and again. Where I know the owner. Shake hands with the staff. Trade personal stories with the bartender. Am treated like an old childhood friend.
I think it's because I'm on this endless quest to eat and try something new every time I go out to eat! And although I don't think that's a bad thing, I do sometimes wish I had my own "go to" kitchen here in New York. It's about time!
Would love to hear about the spots you've grown to frequent over and over again...it would be fun for me to check 'em out.
