My friend V pointed me to Eggs Benedict New York
This site reviews eggs Benedict dishes from restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It also discusses eggs Benedict's history, nutrition, and medical risks, and offers several recipes.
I love the internet.
BTW, they said the burgers were excellent.
So some friends, one of whom is visiting from out of town, were looking for a good place to get burgers here in NY. Not having a ready answer, I turned again to the World Wide Computer Inter Net and googled up "best burger in NY
". newyork.citysearch.com came out on top of the listings, and I perused their Best of Citysearch 2001 best hamburger listings
, finally deciding to recommend the audience winner, Corner Bistro
. Now, I suppose this happens a lot, and I suppose it radically changes the clientele of a small little tavern in the winding streets of the West village, and I suppose that the locals HATE it when that happens, and I suppose that they would do anything to try and keep people from streaming into their little burger joint, creating lines to get in, and just generally ruining things. I suppose they would even go so far as to inundate the user citysearch.com user reviews
with hilarious, nasty fake reviews such as:
slum slum slum slumiest

This is the sort of place Ed Koch would eat at. It's for the diseased mentally ill. Mike the Mayor will likely eat here too ...no doubt take his staff here to show them the value of thrift. This place and the food is for brain dead poseur losers. Period Period. Period. Let toid woilrd ( double sic) immigrants have it as their own. Sanitary standards will remind them of home.
not even bad
They're all pretty amusing

The food at the CB is a Rikers Island reject. The beer fell off the back of Mexican truck. The beef in the burger is road kill. The help is not healthy. There is not one single clean square inch in the joint. Don't go.
, especially the ones that rise indignantly to defend the Corner Bistro against such slander:

Note how all the bad reviews of Corner Bistro are from shrill, thugish, identity-seeking, social tour guides. Lemme ask you all one question. Reading their reviews, would you rather be where they are? Listen to the silence.
In the past I've always made uncooked eggnog; this year I may try this cooked eggnog recipe
from Cook's Illustrated.
If I owe you an email, I swear it's coming. I am so far behind.
