Chennai Gardens … Met roof garden

Roger: That was a very good buffet lunch to-day… thanks for coming up-town to Chennai Gardens for their $6.95 all-you-can-eat, very Kosher, South-Indian vegetarian … all the dishes were so freshly prepared and the breads were so flaky … and the dessert of rice pudding laced with rose water was delicious … a great lunch for Tuesday to Friday … 27th Street between Park & Lexington Avenues … a bottle of Kingfisher beer for $3 … what a great deal …
At the MET museum, the roof garden is open … opening day showed the art work of Frank Stella, monumental sculptures … and the view of Central Park …
