Someone I knew for a really long time in NYC was murdered over the weekend:

Police seem to be ruling out robbery as a motive, since his wallet was undisturbed

I have a hard time believing this was anything but a vicious, random murder because he was one of the nicest and most normal guys. I hope the people that did it are caught soon.

Thanks.

I was not super close, we were more like casual acquaintances but ran in the same circle of people for a really long time and I can vouch that he was one of the nicest and most positive individuals I met in Brooklyn. It's all pretty upsetting.

I read this earlier, I'm not sure why the police didn't wait until the autopsy before opening a murder investigation. But I'm not familiar with how these things work.

Sorry to turn this page into such a bummer...just wanting everyone to stay safe.

Thanks again all

Its crazy how loved infatuation is when they give every restaurant an 8 something and they always select the worst dishes at the items to get.

yeah, went once and enjoyed it, but didn't quite get the hype. also it freezing cold out and a late winter menu, and _extraordinarily_ heavy. should try it again though.

I snagged a reservation so I went right in. Very efficiently run. The standby line was probably over a hundred people.

I've had a couple of good meals there, but one was an away chef takeover so that doesn't count I guess.

I have, however, had the best sherry cobbler in my goddamn life there from Kelvin, one of their bartenders (this was a couple years ago so he might be somewhere else now).

When I asked if he would be willing to do off-menu drinks because it was slow he asked what I had in mind. Since it was hot, I asked for a cobbler. With a mischievous wink, he proceeded to leave the bar and disappear into the garden.

He came back with a bunch of grapes, and then, over the course of ten minutes, proceeded to slice each grape so thinly they were nearly transparent a la Goodfellas. Once that was accomplished, he built the cobbler with the sherries we had been talking about. He served it in a milkshake glass with a barspoon, reasoning that once I had finished the drink I could use the spoon to polish off the grape must which had been busy stewing in the bottom of the glass in the sherry while I drank the cobbler through a straw.

A memorable cocktail.

the one and only time i went to olmsted was in fall 2016 and i thought it was lovely. we kinda went in blind and it wasn't a busy night, so the whole backyard with the hot toddy's and penfield blankets to me felt very organic and sweet. we were the only guests back there, the sun was setting, etc. then we moved in to the dining room and service and food were both excellent. that was over two years ago, so i have no idea now. i do kinda keep up on the place though, and if i had to guess the owners have a new project in the works that involves big capital investment, or the owners have received additional outside money to continue with developing/refining the olmsted property. that brunch dish they do with the breakfast egg rolls served in their own olmsted branded fast-food style paper box is like straight out of the guidara/meyer/chang playbooks, the kind of one-off shit you can do for fun when you're turning a profit.
Nice day if it doesn't rain.

i went to faun for the very first time last month. they have a lovely backyard as well and the food is very nice. i picked this phrase up from the dell'anima owners when they closed down recently, but faun is a pretty classic "elevated neighborhood restaurant". totally good and would definitely drop in if i were in the prospect area or wanted a nice lowkey spot off the A.
