SPRING HAS SPRUNG 2018!

Doesn't look shady to me

THE Mets are in first place – it must be April!  In conjunction with that we’ve trotted out the hackneyed title above, which basically means there’s no local news of import.  Unless of course you’re a foodie – a designation given to anyone who lives in a major metropolitan area on one of the coasts, eats food, and is not a vegan, in which case the large signage added to the facade of the soon-to-be-opened Xi’an Famous Foods on Jackson Avenue is an indicator of the Second Coming.

//CHICKEN & Waffles – around the turn of the century I spent a long weekend with my cousin who lives in LA, where I was introduced to three local customs: drag racing, lenge tacos eaten street side, and Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles.  Fast forward 15-20 years and tacos are ubiquitous in the five boros while drag racing will never be, unless it’s Uber vs. Lyft.  As for chicken and waffles, it’s on the cusp of a culinary break out here in the city and currently on the menu at fashionable/hip spots like Red Rooster in Harlem, Pies n Thighs in Williamsburg, and at Sweet Chick which just this week opened a branch in Long Island City, and where this entree is given main billing.  Who needs LA, please pass the syrup.
