Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful 2010! I hope this year is full of joy and prosperity for all of you!

A bit of sad news: New York's iconic Tavern on the Green restaurant served its last meal on New Year's Eve.  I know the restaurant is thought of nowadays as kind of a tourist trap, but I've eaten there several times on trips to NYC, and I always enjoyed it (moreso for the unique atmosphere/ambience than for the food).  I celebrated my birthday by having brunch with friends at Tavern on the Green in 2008; a lovely time was had by all!  It's truly the end of an era, but I'm interested to see what the new proprietor has in store for the restaurant.
