Eying the produce
Kitty corner from Lincoln Center between 66th and 67th Streets, is a little triangle across from the #1 subway station to the west and Barnes and Noble to the north. On Saturday there was a Farmers Market selling organic produce and other local products like honey and home-made jams. Pricey. But hey, if it salves your conscience and makes a buck at the same time, then it's the American Way.
We are drawn to Chinatown, its smells and sights. For lunch, we tried the menu at the Pho Viet Huong restaurant on Mulberry Street. I ordered this pork and steamed egg dish. At $5.50 it's reasonable as New York goes. It was a little too sweet for my taste. And it was cold. Looks pretty, though!
