          thanks - that place looks great! the only drawback for me is that i am all the way on the UWS and don't think i'd have time to sneak down there!

              Yes, I third two red hens... YUM!!!!! Not only tasty but quite beautiful!

          2. Surprised no one has mentioned Black Hound. More interesting than the cupcake bakeries and pretty.
