au revoir Florent

Tonight we went to dinner at Florent since it's closing on Sunday after 23 years. It's a really cool diner/what have you and we thought we'd go say goodbye even though Heidi has never been to it before and I just went for the first time a few weeks ago. It's totally a place we would have loved to have gone to more if we'd been given the chance. We sat at the counter and it was fun to watch the waiters zip around and mix drinks and dance to the music playing. The place was packed and there was a celebratory spirit in the air for the other diners saying goodbye with friends to a favorite place. Too many places like this are disappearing in NY-tragic.

I am so sad. It was hands down my favorite eat in NYC... especially the breakfast. Once Calvin Klein was eating two tables down. Glad you went before it closed. How is the new pad?

Ahh...I hate when good restaurants close especially when they've been in business for so long.
