It’s no secret that I have a real soft spot for Sake Bar Satsko(202 East 7th Street between Ave. B & C.

They have a location on 1st street between 1st & 2nd Avenue, but I’m too damn lazy). Continue reading
102 Avenue C (at 7th street) the long-shuttered former home of Mr C’s Italian Trattoria might be reopening. Over the past few days, I’ve seen the doors open & people pottering around the place. I’m really hoping that we get a decent restaurant here as my one & only experience at Mr. C’s was laughable…
