RIP HAT

"The Hat may not have been a great restaurant—apart from its excellent name—but for a long time it was a necessary one. It was a place where a poor twentysomething with $40 in his pocket could eat and drink like a king on a Friday night, and, for one hour, not think too badly of the way New York was treating him."

Which you can still do in plenty of places (hello Chinatown) with much better food. I never understood the popularity of That Hat other than the insideryness of knowing to call it that rather than it's actual name.

And Artichoke is a place where a poor twentysomething with $40 in his pocket can, if not eat like a king, develop coronary plaques of a certain regal sheen.
