Plan B signage and interior

Interior of the dining room; Glasses of Anne Pinchon Rosé and The Narcissist
Jo’s is not a stranger to me, as I’ve eaten and written about this restaurant almost three years ago. Thinking back what I ate then and compared to what I had a few nights ago, the interior didn’t change [...]

I know I haven’t written in ages, but it’s just the fact that I haven’t really found anything tasty around the Upper East Side that is new to me. Sure, there’s Alice’s Tea Cup and a few Le Pain Quotidiens around my area but seriously, why should I write repeats of myself? Yeah, I do [...]
