"Big Night" - big movie! Came away with a wonderful
feeling, and so did everyone else in the audience. The camera
was held like a window into these people's lives. It was very
intimate. In the final scene, when Stanley Tucci tosses the plain

Finally, a real movie with everything, and done to perfection
from beginning to end.
It still lingers in my mind weeks later. (That hasn't happened
in a long time!)

and spaghetti, for which this bistro is noted. The generous portions
and reasonable prices make it a reliable destination for friends
or family to meet for any occasion.

Tea and Sympathy
Also on Greenwich Avenue, is a unique experience in a low-key
English style tea room.
If your a fan of bangers and mash or trifles, this is the place!
For Chinese, there's no other spot then
on 6th Ave. between 10th and 11th Streets.
Try the over-sized steamed pork bun or the Taiwanese Cold Noodles.
