|The B&H man kept calling us "sweetie," and I didn't even care.|
We go because I love the cold borscht and my kid loves the matzah ball soup. We both tear through the huge hunks of challah they chop off for us, slathered with butter--because, Lara, there is a lot of butter here, which cracks me up, because B&H stands for . . . "Better Health."
If the counter stools are taken, if the tables lining the wall are filled, you have to angle your body to get in. We did, laden with packs, and got the last two counter seats. We know what we want without menus, and we got our soups in 30 seconds. The server put it down with such haste, it sloshed. Everything was messy and good--and cheap.

|So fascinated by this "Kosher Certifications" even after 17 years in NYC|
On the way back from escorting another kid somewhere, I insisted of getting out of my mental tight place--feeling so circumscribed, Lara--but kid obligation, that I decided to try and find Thoreau in my local used bookstore.
This edition carries an inscription from 1971. It sounds like the receiver was headed for some kind of peripatetic world tour. So jealous (unlike Thoreau who refused all invites to Europe). But having the Dairy around kind of makes me feel like I'm living a little.
