Good value

We’ve been talking about the kind of restaurants we want to tell other people about … and very few of them have PR budgets and “buzz” … Eater, Bruni, Andrea Strong, and hundreds of other folks can and do adequately cover those kinds of places … there’s nothing wrong with those kinds of places – we even eat at and like some of them! …
But we’re more interested in, and prefer to support, the numerous great “mom and pop” places, where the owners – and often their families – are much closer to the business of cooking and not so focused on showy and expensive artistry … again, nothing wrong with showy and expensive artistry, but those places have many people who want to swoon over and gossip about them … and we don’t need to add to that … plus, we’re not the swooning types …
Steer away from all the fancy flowers, silverware, bottled still or sparkling water, sexy female hostesses and publicity-seeking chefs … we are not impressed with all the extra noise … we are only interested in the food and great value …
Moreover, some would claim that ethnic eateries are not hygenic but we have not seen any empirical evidence from the City health authorities to substantiate that claim … we have never caught any sickness from eating street vendor food and at ethnic eateries …
From now on, we will highlight reviews of places that sound interesting to us, and we’ll continue to try and spread the good word about places we like … places we would like to take our friends … and we hope that you will try them, too, so that they can stay in business and thrive …
NYC is a town where you can eat at fantastic restaurants and street vendors every day on less than $20 … yes, we like him, too … so, from now on we will share reviews and tell you about those places that we believe are a good value …sometimes those will be expensive places … but more often they won’t be …
