Can you beat this in life?
They finally started taking reservations, and because that meant I wouldn't have to wait in line for three hours, I went to Au Cheval, the much hyped Chicago burger restaurant. Nice room. Super buzz (too much for me but I'm old.) Cool location in Cortlandt Alley. But "best burger in America"? No. It's a good burger, sure. Fries are quite good. Fried bologna sandwich sounds interesting in a low brow hipster way although we all had the burger so I can't say for sure. Nothing specific to complain about but it didn't knock my socks off. Doubt I'll go back except maybe if I had someone in from out of town and I thought they might like a fancy burger restaurant in a cool graffiti-fied back alley in Tribeca. It's almost like if Universal Studios did an NYC amusement park, this would be the cool downtown burger place in it. But again, I guess I'm old.
Why did I not check the frozen section at the top Japanese grocery here till Feb 2019?

al fornos inspired restaurant on avenue a
my neighbor accidentally (dont ask how) bought this 18 yo scotch instead of the 12 yo in a bundle of liquor he was purchasing for a xmas gathering. proceeded to throw up it and everything else he ate and drank on the uber ride home later that evening and then gave the driver $200 for the clean up though he said it was all outside the window. the driver being a dick then charged them $150 on the credit card for clean up which uber refunded. pretty much how i imagined the first christmas must have been.
The Baja wine scene is in full swing, lots of wineries, $$, cool restaurants, etc.....
Some of the hotels are wineries and nice modern style, $$$$, four drunk snooring men in 4 rooms like $1800 a night
we already rep the great natural Mexican winery but we need to know is it all modern or other hip wines exist, R&D....

Tony Yoshida, longtime owner of the Dojo restaurants and Sunrise Mart to open Japan Village in Brooklyn. It's being touted as the "Japanese Eataly," I think we need a report from the field from one of you who regularly venture into Brooklyn - Skinny?
