    I'm a bit leery of establishments that proclaim their "quality" in neon signage...

    It's a burger/fish taco joint, from the former owners of Hale and Hearty Soups- can't wait!

    Hopefully they won't be as insane as they are with the H&H prices. Who am I kidding - of course they will be.

    ^ I checked out their prices today (well yesterday now). They were pretty good.

    Obviously, they're open now...









    Meanwhile, on the 40 St side next to MUJI, the Japanese restaurant INAKAYA is also about to open...

    What is it about this tower that is so......Gotham? I have been trying to put my finger on it but I cannot define its classic NYC architectural quality.

    I think there a couple reasons:

    1. In some ways it is reminiscent of the neo-gothic style:


    2. The exterior cables, steel bars and color bring to mind NYC's bridges:

    Yeah the crown definitely gives it some NYC flare.....but I gotta say that the observation about the cables and stuff how it relates to the bridges is very astute....I hadn't thought of that one before, good one. One more reason to love this tower.

    Schnipper's put some chairs out, so that's good.






    and the restaurant "Montenapo" finally reveals itself:



    Nice view of the birch trees



    The signage on both of these places is very nice.
