While walking home (via 6th Avenue) from dinner at Matsugen on Thursday evening, I noticed a gargantuan crowd as I approached Houston Street. “What the hell is going on? Pre-concert ticket sale? Is Madonna or Britney coming to town?” I wondered as I got closer to the excitement. Then it hit me: I was at the corner of Trendy and Da Silvano/Bar Pitti.
Bah! “Are these fools insane?” I asked myself. “Why in the world would anyone wait around like this for a table?” As a Da Silvano/Bar Pitti virgin myself, I’ve always written these restaurants off to be over hyped/trendy with presumably crappy food. Am I wrong? Is one or the other (or both) worth trying?
