I met Todd and Elisa this past Saturday at Diner in Williamsburg. The place was packed and there was an hour wait. We got on the list, but went next door to Marlow & Sons for a quick and easy table. We ran into Todd’s old friend Sean who lives in Tokyo. Someone he used to hang out with everyday in college, but hadn’t seen in years. It’s funny how NYC is such a small world.
We couldn’t decide what to get. Everything sounded pretty damn good on the menu, but I just wished I knew what they looked like. Sometimes I think all restaurants should be like Denny’s with pictures on the menu.
Todd got the Fried Chicken, Elisa got the Pork Rillons and I got the Beef Stew. Everything was good, although different than what I expected. Things were smaller and fancier. The beef stew for instance was not thick with gravy, but clean and liquidy.
There was one thing I saw people getting that looked big. I think it was the grilled cheese. That looked good because it was big.
It was weird. Our food looked small, but we were stuffed.
I wasn’t sure if we needed to go back to Diner to tell them we already ate.
