Last night, I went to see Asobi Seksu and The Radio Dept. play at the South Street Seaport. There was a Maker’s Mark vending machine that I tried to put money into, but instead a photographer took a picture of me looking confused and stupid. So I got a large cheap styrofoam cup of beer at Simply Seafood (3rd floor the mall food court). $4.16 plus tax for 32oz of Bud and Light. $6 for fancier beers. Best deal to beer up during a concert there.
On my second large beer, I started to get drunk hungry and called Rusty to start cooking me some turkey burgers. But when I got off the phone, I saw a sign for Russian food at a Russian bath house and spa and a super hot Russian girl walking out. So I walked in. I had to walk up down, around and up to get to the restaurant. I passed rich Russian men hanging out in white robes in the lounge. The restaurant was small and empty. A flat-screen TV with Vladimir Putin on it …later a late night variety talk show where there were girls with big boobs and fake lips.
I ordered the Siberian Pelmini “Moscow Style” ($13.95) and a seltzer. The Moscow Style means the dumplings are fried with cheese, cream and mushrooms. Awesome. They were delicious. Crispy dumplings and the bread on the side was good to soak up that cheesy cream sauce.
The super hot Russian girl walked back in. I think she was fighting with my waitress or maybe just talking really loud. She seemed to work there.
On my way out, I went to pee, but someone was in the restroom for a long time. When he finally came out, he saw me and went back into the restroom and locked it. After ten seconds he came back out and we both smiled at each other. I don’t know why he did that, but it the toilet was safe.
They have a good lunch deal –soup, salad and main course for $11.95. I would definitely hit that if I worked in the area. My pelmini dumplings were surprisingly good and quick to come out.
