I read the following today while surfing on a blog about New York Tourism. A certain Mark Dominus wrote in July 2007: "If you don't know where to eat in New York, here's my advice: Take the subway to 42nd street, get out, and walk to 9th Avenue. Choose a side of the street by coin flip. Walk north on 9th avenue. Make a note of every interesting-seeming restaurant you pass. After three blocks, you will have passed at least ten interesting-seeming restaurants. Walk back to the most interesting-seeming one and go in, or select one at random. I promise you will have a win, probably a big win. That stretch of 9th Avenue is a paradise of inexpensive but superb restaurants."
Anyone who can agree, who feels he should disagree with this statement? Is this, four years later, still a pertinent remark?
