Starting this month, I'm all about two things: restaurants and baseball. I'm not sure why I connect the two, but I guess it has something to do with getting deeper into the culture of a location by understanding the sports mores and by experiencing the cuisine. I kick off this series with a look at my current home, New York City.
Here's a restaurant, right in my neighborhood, that's gotten a lot of buzz, and I loved it! If you get a chance, get a reservation at Crown on the Upper East Side. It's definitely the "crown jewel" (sorry about the pun) in my neighborhood.
